Seaside Sunsets - Review & Giveaway

Seaside Sunsets
Seaside Dreams # 3
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing December 16th, 2014

Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the blond beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down.

In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Review by Marlene Engel

Jessica has devoted much of her life to her cello career.  Spending several hours a day practicing and many nights performing doesn’t leave much room for a social life.  Despite her mother’s disapproval, she decides to take a much needed hiatus from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and spend the summer vacationing at the Seaside community.  Hoping to experience life and see if she has indeed been missing out, she goes against everything her mother has worked so hard to help her achieve to find out.

Founder of OneClick, one of the largest search engine websites, Jamie Reed has decided to spend the summer at Seaside and work remotely from his grandmother’s cottage.  He wasn’t looking for a relationship, but there’s something about sweet, beautiful Jessica that piques his interest.  But when he gets news that a major glitch has occurred within his company, his attorney/friend comes by to discuss business with him.  Known to be a bit crass with the ladies, he takes it upon himself to confront Jessica about hers and Jamie’s blossoming friendship and succeeds in driving a wedge between them.  But will Jamie find out what’s happened before it’s too late? 

Love is buzzing at the Seaside community and Jamie has been bitten by the bug.  Join him, along with the rest of the gang from Seaside as friendships are made, love develops and lies are told. 

I have read all of the books in the Love in Bloom series.  This one is definitely on the top of the list as one of my favorites.  The characters are relatable, the story enjoyable and the passion is sizzling hot!  Why not treat yourself to a beautiful sunset?  Seaside Sunsets!
