review || SEASIDE LOVERS { blog tour } by Melissa Foster

World Literacy Press | July 20, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Seaside Summers, book 7


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.

At this point in the game, I think it's ok for me to stop reviewing Ms. Foster's writing style -- because it's fabulous. Her characters are real; her dialogue, real; the thoughts, real. Occasionally a character will come across that I don't feel is as superbly well-rounded as some of her others, but I always enjoy a Melissa Foster book.

So let's talk Grayson and Parker. How cute was this couple?! One of the aspects I liked most about these two was that their connection was there prior to the story. Sure, the connection has since been questioned due to circumstances, but the chemistry is evident to anyone with a pair of eyes -- in their world or at home on your Kindle. These two were lovely to follow, and artist Grayson proves he can be quite the alpha, protective male when it comes to someone he cares about. I felt this was the best story this once side player could get.
