Tasty Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Seaside Sunsets by Melissa Foster

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.

My Thoughts:

Have you ever had a feeling that there's going to be rocky roads ahead in a story? Well, that's the feeling I got when I started Melissa Foster's Seaside Sunsets. Yep, I had a feeling of dread, but don't worry its not for a while. Lets move on. 

So, we get to know cute adorable Jessica Ayers. Now she's a bit socially awkward, after all she has spent most of her life not fitting in and focusing her attention on playing the cello. Lets be honest, playing an instrument is automatically not going to make you cool unless it's a guitar or drums in a rock band. Anyway, so when she gets to the area she's kind of unsure of herself and if you have been following the series you would know that the girls can be a bit of a handful. Obviously, Jessica doesn't know how to handle the situation.. Truth be told, I don't know if I would be able to handle the girls either. Anyway, Jessica is at a crossroads and she's not sure what direction she wants to go with her life. I mean she could stay on the same old path or find something thats more appealing to her. Now are guy who will be the next victim to find love, Jamie Reed. Jamie is a geeky workaholic who loves his grandma. Every now again he needs an escape from his life and he comes to Cape. 

I love that these two hit off right the bat. They are just so cute together, and yes it's a whirl wind relationship that seems to perfect to be true and of course they are going to hit a bump or two. 

All right, Melissa makes this Seaside Sunsets enjoyable, because we have two characters that tend to focus on what they do for a living. Then they find one another and they start to forget that there is more to life than work. Now only that Melissa is able to work in some witty lines that tickle your funny (or at least mine). So, here are some of my favorite lines from the story that just make the story fun:

JAMIE WAS HOT, hard, and hornier than a bunny on Viagra.

That's just funny. Plus, you kind feel bad for Jamie situation. Okay another one:

"There's nothing chunky about your sweet little body, but uh...I've got a little something chubby in my drawers that would like to do a little dunking."

These are just fun lines from the story. By the end of Seaside Sunsets you have be through an array of emotions. Melissa does a marvelous job at tugging on the heart strings when things get a little complicated Jamie's best friend is himself. Overall, Seaside Sunset is an enjoyable story. I find myself loving the Seaside Summer books. So, if you are needing an escape to the cape you might considering joining Jamie and Jessica on their adventures.
