Review: Seaside Lovers by Melissa Foster

Fall in Love with Grayson & Parker!

Seaside Summers #7
Melissa Foster
Releasing July 20th, 2016
World Literary Press

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the sinfully hot artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.

My Thoughts:
I've read more Melissa Foster books this year than any other author (I went way back to the early books). Her books are good y'all! I'm loving this series though, it screams "SUMMER". I actually read this book in a hammock watching a storm over the ocean (be jealous. Ha). 
What I really love about this particular book is the fact that these two characters already knew each other, it wasn't BAM inst-love. They were talking through email about a project they were working on together. That particular nugget made it more real for me. I adored Grayson. He was soooo dreamy and a perfectly sexy alpha-male. Parker was such a sweetheart, I really loved the fact that she wanted to let Bert's brother know how good of a person he was. That made me love her even more. Parker and Grayson are a well-matched couple. In almost everyone of Melissa's books there's an obstacle the couple has to overcome and that's why I love her books. Grayson and Parker fix the issue in a real-world way.  I can't really go into much more detail because then I would be spoiling something and no one likes a spoiler (unless its reading reality steve to see who wins each season of the bachelor\ette. don't judge ok?)  Anywayyys...I know I say this with every book I review of Ms. Foster's, but seriously do yourself a favor and get your hands on this book and then and only then will you understand what I'm rambling about :)
My rating: 4.5
