Seaside Embrace Book Tour


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.

 My Review 

*I received the following product(s) to review . I was not required to write a positive review no other monetary compensation was given . Any and all opinions are my own.

With a challenging and nonstop life, Jana Garner needs to keep everything organized and as is. While she can adapt to change she likes the way things in her life are – without complications. So When things start to get a bit out of order Jana is left grasping to get it all back under control, and Hunter Lacroux is not one to make that happen. 

Jana is no longer the commitment kinda of gal when it comes to men, not after her hurtful past so the flaming hot hookups she has with Hunter should stay just like that- only hookups. Problem is , even with all her hidden insecurities deep below her strong shell Jana is finding it too difficult to deal with her feelings towards Hunter. He has a past of his own and it goes well beyond what she wants to get mixed up in. The more she steps back, the more Hunter steps up, left and right even when he screws things up he is becoming a fixture in her life that she hadn’t anticipated . Can she get over broken memories and move forwards? Or will Hunter lose that charm and end up hurting her in the end? 

Hunter likes women. No doubt about it. He has no trouble getting anyone he wants , but he’s suddenly unable to look past Jana and their intense nights together. She is stubborn , which makes an interesting collison considering he’s just as stubborn as her.  He likes her passion and dedication, and the more he spends time with her the more she becomes an inspiration while he helps out a friend . His feelings start to ignite and his wants expanding beyond the bedroom door with Jana which is a problem because not only does he need to figure out how to prove he’s not only worth a chance,  but at the same time, Jana is just as well. He is determined to show her the past doesn’t matter anymore and both of them have moved on, but it’s not that easy.  

Both being stubborn and headstrong in two different directions Jana and Hunter aren’t afraid to voice their sides or even frustrations to each other. When it gets right down to it, they are both extremely similar and neither really wants to admit that. Can Hunter come clean with his feelings and not have Jana bolt out the door from her fears ?  Will they both be able to fully overcome their past and move on? You will have to find out in the sizzling new installment of Seaside Summers: Seaside Embrace to find out. 

Always enjoy Melissa Fosters books! Characters are very strong, always solid and believable. This was the only one out of all of Fosters books that I started reading and wondered if the two main characters would not even end up together. They are totally stubborn and set in their ways, even with their past proceeding them , they were themselves stuck in their ways enough so it wouldn’t always come to a happy ending. Jana and Hunter are two very intense people, strong willed and then some, so it doesn’t always mix very well.  The further along the story went though, both of them grew and in turn flourished into possibly my favorite stories of all . Foster always creates such a flow in her writing you get caught up in it and root for each person, this one was done very well. If you like a good funny, yet heartwarming story pick up Seaside Embrace!
