Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series!
Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She’s happy as can be, renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed and preparing the shop for its grand opening. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over—love.
Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar to escape the painful reality of his father’s failing health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the door—and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.
When Sawyer walks into Sky’s tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar—Sky—the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.
As always, Melissa Foster leads us into a world of hunky men, beautiful women and a rocky path to love. It always feels so good to be back with the Seaside Summers gang and although this book is part of a series, it is not necessary to have read the other books in the series but I'd recommend it if only because they are so brilliant!
I absolutely adored Sky's character in the book. She is such a free spirit and I just loved how she handled all life has thrown at her so far. The love she has from her family and all those in the town is evident. However, she has just about given up on love when she meets Sawyer with his hypnotic voice and beautiful soul. The chemistry between Sky and Sawyer is electric from day one. Sawyer is a brooding, gorgeous man with a level of hurt that just cries out for the love of a good woman to save him from himself. Being a boxer he is of course fit, physically strong and nerves of steel. Underneath that is a man with an aching heart who is struggling to keep it all in check. Combine that with a soulful singer and dear me I want to jump right into the book and save him myself!
But, there is a lot more going on in this book than boy meets girl, falls in love, girl and boy argue about boys job, etc the end. There is an emotive back story going on in relation to Sawyer's father and the risks that Sawyer is prepared to put himself through in order to help him. Can Sky reconcile all she knows in her heart with how she feels about boxing and the danger to Sawyer. Another amazing book by Melissa Foster that sizzles off the pages and makes your heart jump into your throat all at the same time. As usual, brilliantly written with an interesting plot, unforgettable characters and of course that all important ingredient..............love!
