Seaside Embrace (Love in Bloom: Seaside Summers, Book 6) by Melissa Foster Book Tour

Posted on March 16, 2016 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in Reviews / 2 Comments


Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series in 2014

Featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


After working hard all day, creating his beautiful metal sculptures, sinfully sexy Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot, sexy babe–or two. But after spending a handful of naughty nights with seductive and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana’s had a string of bad relationships, and there’s only thing she’ll commit to–not committing.

White-hot passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she’s sure he can’t meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

SEASIDE EMBRACE is part of the SEASIDE SUMMERS series, and the newest addition to the “Love in Bloom” family. Each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the series.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
Melissa Foster has done it once again. Each time I choose to read a book written by Ms. Foster I am guaranteed a heartwarming story. Seaside Embrace was no different as it provided me with that and more. I have been following the Seaside series from the beginning, and the stories get better with each installment. She elicits a myriad of emotions in this addition to what I consider to be a great series. What I love about this series is that each book can be read as a stand-alone therefore you can read them in any order you so desire. However, I should warn you the moment you begin this series you will not be able to stop at just one book. 
In the previous installments, we were introduced to Hunter Lacroux and Jana Hunter. I was secretly wishing they would get their own story and now my wish has been granted. Hunter and Jana are not your typical couple. They have been indulging in casual sex with each other for some time, unbeknownst to their family and friends. Their connection was combustible and addictive. Eventually, what started out as casual became something with substance. However, because of their stubborn natures, they were determined to fight their feelings. Hunter is a womanizer who was not looking for a permanent relationship and Jana had commitment phobia. Will these two be able to move past their pain and fear, and cease their chance at love? 
I enjoyed reading about Hunter and Jana. It was easy to relate to them. I liked that they were not afraid to acknowledge their weaknesses and took steps to address them. Hunter was patient, especially when it came to Jana. He loved her and wanted to change the status of their relationship. However, he was willing to wait until Jana was able to acknowledge her feelings. That’s the power of love. 
Jana is strong, but beneath that tough exterior lies a wounded soul. She has had her share of pain, hence her fear of commitment. She had allowed her fears to control her, eventually, though she was able to move past it and reclaim her life. 
The sub-plot was an eye-opener. It dealt with the problems, that couples have to deal with in their marriage. It demonstrated that no matter how much we love someone if we don’t address these problems and seek help then it’s likely to lead to an end of the relationship. It’s my belief that the problems Hunter’s best friend were faced with helped him to better handle his relationship with Jana. 
The story, which is beautifully written, was engrossing. I was pulled in from the start and was eager to see the direction the story was going to take. Like all her stories, Seaside Embrace is a story about love, hope, struggles, and friendships. Each of her stories is different with unique characters. There is so much laughter, camaraderie, and tears flowing between the pages that you can’t but help feel like you are a part of this group of friends. 
Fans of Melissa Foster you do not want to miss out on this one. For those who are new to her work, you need to get a copy of Seaside Embrace. You will love every moment of it! I for one am looking forward to the next book in the series.
