~Blog Tour & Review: Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster~

Seaside Dreams
Love in Bloom # 21: Seaside Summers # 1
By: Melissa Foster
Release Date: August 25th, 2014

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Twin Sisters' Review
Overall Rating: 5 Rockin’ ★★★★
Bella was at a turning point in her life.  A relationship that had gone sour and harsh comments spewing from her ex had her backing away from men and committed relationships.  She needed to decide the direction her life would take.  Would she continue to work as a teacher in the same school she had for years, keep her house or sell it and move somewhere else and start over?  The situation that she found herself in now was stagnant and had lost its appeal, something was missing.  Every summer Bella and her best friends spent eight weeks together at Seaside.  This was their time to reconnect and share what was happening in each of their lives.  This summer was different for Bella because she had decided to make a drastic change and all she had left to do now was share that decision with her friends.    

When his partner was killed in the line of duty, Officer Caden Grant put in his resignation and moved from the big city to the small community of Seaside!  Caden had always been the dependable one, the one that cared for others and would always put himself last.  While in college his girlfriend had dropped the baby bomb on him and literally left him holding a newborn.  Being the responsible person he was, he gave up everything for his son and committed his life to loving, protecting and raising him alone.  Caden had no regrets; he loved his son and was thankful for the life he had been entrusted with.  The way he had chosen to live left little time for anything but raising his son and that left women without commitment off his list of things he needed.

Everything changed for both Bella and Caden the night he did a drive by at the Seaside cottages.  When Caden caught Bella and her friends in the process of playing a prank on one of the other residents nothing would be the same for either of them.  Instant attract flared between the two and the commitment-phobic Bella wandered if she would be able to resist Caden. Read this heartwarming love story that will make you laugh and cry while at the same time entertaining you!

Hero –Officer Caden Grant: 5 stars
Heroine –Bella Abbascia:  5 stars

Would I recommend this book: Yes! The gangs all back at their Seaside cottages so let the fun begin!  When you put a group of beautiful amazingly self-sufficient women together in a small community, look out single hot guys in the area. Trouble has a name and you’ll find it in this book!

Would I recommend this author: Yes! Ms. Foster uses laughter, steamy hot sex and gorgeous, hunky men to entertain you with her witty, fun filled books.  You will not be disappointed when you read any of her books.
