5 Ebook Winners-WW-Taken by Love-Review of Seaside Dreams-Melissa Foster-Ends 9/28

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

It is such fun reading about these four friends. Bella is the steadiest one in the group, and the one who most who loves doing things they shouldn't really do. She has stayed at a job for 5 years etc etc etc in Connecticut. She made a slight mistake by dating a fellow teacher--oops--well it ended and although Bella didn't really care she decided to change her life around. She had always had a dream and she decided to follow it. Leanne had followed her dream and now had her own business year round at the Cape and a hunk of a husband! The only difference being--Bella decided she was NOT going to date-period end of sentence. Now we all know that can't happen in a Romance book! But if you don't find yourself laughing as she has not-a-dates with a really nice police officer who just also happens to be a single Dad of a teenager----Of course the teen gets in a bit of trouble but is a really good kid at heart and Bella wants to help (she is a high school teacher after all). Does Bella realize her dream? Does she finally decide that not-a-boyfriend is someone she can not let go of? Read this book to find out--actually read this series it is great!


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
