Seaside Summers #7

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the sinfully hot artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.

"He wondered if she ever got lost between who she really was and the woman she was expected to be."

Melissa Foster never ceases to amaze me with her words!

I adored Parker and Grayson's story so much! It reminded me of the film Notting Hill in a sense. The Hollywood starlet falls who for the local guy who saves her life in unexpected ways. It was beautiful!

Parker has escaped her life in the spotlight while dealing with the grief of losing her most beloved friend/father figure. Grayson is the man hired to help her with a project, but he helps her in the most wonderful way. He helps her heal and shows her what love and family is all about.

"I feel it, too, sweetheart. I don't have the answers. But I don't want to fight what we feel."

Their attraction was instant, but I loved the buildup!!

Melissa has this great way of giving her readers what they want! They want to feel what the characters are feeling-wanting. You felt the chemistry between Parker and Grayson. Just when you think it's finally about to happen...bam...the buildup comtinues. Good stuff! 

This story was a perfect combination of sweet and hot. The way that Grayson comforts Parker through her grief and loss is beautiful to see. And the heat between these two leave you sweating and wanting more!

"Tonight I'm going to kiss you until you can't feel your lips. 
Until your body is weak with wanting and your mind is so full of us that you taste us tomorrow.
Until kissing me is the only thing you can think about.
And then I'm going to kiss you some more."

Holy SWOON!!! Good geez!!

I had been excited for their story and I'm so pleased with it!!! There were so many twist and turns that made the story even more well thought out! Some things I never saw coming and that made it even better!

It was a perfect combo of heart and soul-love and family. It proves that even when you think you're at your lowest point in life, there is always someone there to help mend the pieces of your broken heart. Perfection!

"In a sense, you've been on your own your whole life, finding your way to a great career and hoping for more. I'm here now, and I want to be your more."
