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.
I’ve read quite a few books written by Melissa Foster this year and I am in awe of her constant delivery of well constructed plots with entertaining characters and heart-warming themes. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. Whenever I see her name on a book I immediately think beautiful, sexy and swoon worthy romance because she has delivered THAT and so much more in all the books I’ve read. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Seaside Lovers was the chemistry & connection that Parker and Grayson held. It zinged off the pages but it also went deeper than just sex appeal. They connected before coming together in person. And that was very well portrayed in the story. It made their passion a slow burn of anticipation. It made their connection deeper than mere aesthetics.
The journey of Parker and Grayson is not an easy one, but their story is not gut-wrenching in the least. The short version is .. Parker & Grayson have been corresponding via email for quite a while about a project. While communicating they form a connection that goes deep. When it’s time to meet in person, tragedy strikes for Parker and she flakes. She retreats into her own world and basically blows Grayson off. I should note this tragedy is HUGE for Parker. But then life happens and their paths cross …. cue, the emotional and heartfelt story of Parker & Grayson 🙂
Obviously their story goes much deeper than what I have mentioned and when you one-click their story you will find out how deep 🙂 And one-click you should … because it’s sweet and sexy and beautiful and romantic and just plain LOVE! #TRUST
