“SEASIDE LOVERS is a must-read for Melissa Foster fans.”
~ Under the Covers

I was really looking forward to reading this book because the Seaside Summers series was the first series I tried from Melissa Foster. It was the one that made me fall in love with her writing in the first place so I was really excited about Parker and Grayson.

Now these two are quite different from one another. Parker is an actress while Grayson is an artist. They’ve been exchanging emails for a year, but their first encounter involves Parker being a grieving mess and Grayson walking in when she’s completely down and under. Again, Foster hits readers with a heady dose of emotion from the get-go, setting the pace for the rest of the book. I like these sweeter, more touching stories from Foster because I feel like they offer something different than your typical Contemporary Romance. Not only do they offer better characterization, but I think it just makes the stories more memorable in my opinion.

I’m starting to become a real fan of the way Foster creates her heroes. They are all very sweet, very sexy, but also very real. They aren’t idols that woman fantasize, but real men that also have flaws. The romance between Parker and Grayson blooms beautifully. I would’ve thought that because of her grief that things would take longer, but because they have a groundwork of communication already from emails, it has already jump-started their relationship to the point where Parker already trusts Grayson. He just has the show her he’s the right guy for him.

I would highly recommend reading Melissa Foster if you like sweet, touching Contemporary Romances. I think meeting her heroes alone is worth it because they are just so delicious, but you also get fantastic writing and incredibly real heroines as well. SEASIDE LOVERS is a must-read for Melissa Foster fans.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
