Seaside Hearts by Melissa Foster Review and Giveaway

I'm not sure how Melissa Foster keeps doing it but with every Seaside story, she makes my heart swell, then makes me cry my eyes out, then makes my heart happy again!  

In Seaside Hearts, Jenna Ward and Peter Lacroux have been friends for a very long time.  I loved this back story!  The relationship took it's time, but you have to wait for LOVE to be ready.  You get to learn about Jenna and Pete's friendship in the other Seaside books, but they got their turn here in Seaside Hearts.  

I feel like Seaside Hearts is more than just a love story.  While you follow Pete and Jenna's journey into each other's arms, their parents are going through some majorly tough times.  

Saving lives and connecting hearts.  That is what Seaside Hearts is about! 

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.

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

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