Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster Review and Giveaway

I was so happy to get back to the Seaside Girls with this book!  I loved reading about Kurt and Leanna in Read, Write, Love, but when I met Bella and Caden.... Oh. My. Gosh.  A sexy man in uniform and a woman so sweet and grounded.  While Bella is trying figure out her own life, Officer Sexy Caden comes along, commanding her attention!  Caden comes with a little baggage, but Bella welcomes it with opened arms!  Their story will put a smile on your face and in your heart!

This book was great for me as I just moved close to the beach and have a group of friends as close as Bella's Seaside friends.  The relationships they have warm hearts and add a wonderful side story!

The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, 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.

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?

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series
