Having a mad crush on her boss's son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt's life is hours away from Mira's home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass are one of my favorite couples. Sky has a soulful spirit, loves poetry, art and owns her own tattoo shop. She loves hanging out with her family and friends and is happy that they each have found their forever love, but she is wishful that someday she’ll find hers.

Sawyer is a singer, songwriter, poet and above all else a boxer. When Sawyer performs one night at a bar that Sky and her friends are at, Sky is mesmerized by his soulful voice and lyrics of the song. When he scans the crowd while up on stage, he makes brief eye contact with Sky. When he returns to the bar, their eyes meet again. Inspiration hits and he starts to write lyrics down on napkins as they pop into his mind. Sky cannot stop thinking about Sawyer and as fate would have it, he walks into her shop for a new tattoo. She is completely tongue-tied. As Sawyer removes his shirt, Sky is amazed not only by how sexy he is but also the lyrics tattooed on his back. When Sawyer notices his father’s poetry book on the counter, he tells Sky he knows the place that inspired one of the poems and asks her if she’d like to go there; of course, she accepts.

As their relationship builds, they realize their souls are a match to one another but Sky struggles with the fact that Sawyer is a boxer. When he tells her the reasoning for this one last fight, she tries to be supportive until a cheap shot at a sparring match reveals Sawyer’s secret. Will his need for his father’s long-term care and her need to keep him safe tear them apart or will the universe step in and bring these kindred spirits back together?

BJ Harrison did a great job narrating Sky and Sawyer’s story.

Jessica Ayers is taking a break from the Boston Symphony Orchestra where she is an accomplished cellist. She rents an apartment in the Seaside community. One morning, disgusted with losing a bid for an autograph baseball she believes belonged to her father, she throws her phone over her deck and hits Jamie Reed as he jogs by.

Jamie Reed is a computer geek who owns his own search engine company. He is spending the summer in Seaside with his grandmother, who raised him after his parent’s death when he was a child. When Jessica peeks over the railing to see who she hit with her phone, Jamie is instantly attracted to Jessica and she feels the same after only just meeting him. As they get to know one another, their chemistry only grows stronger.

This is a wonderful story of two career-mind people trying to find a balance between their personal lives and their careers.
The narrator, BJ Harrison does a great job narrating Jamie and Jessica’s story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

For three months, Bella and her friends stay at their families’ summer homes on the Cape. When the summer is over, Bella does not return to her previous life in the city and makes Wellfleet her permanent home. An unfortunate incident brings Bella face to face with Cade, the new sheriff in Wellfleet.

Cade and his son Evan moved to the Cape after Cade’s partner was killed. While out on patrol, he finds Bella in her undies with her hair caught in her friend’s window. Their attraction is immediate but neither are at a place in their lives to explore it further. Evan is Cade’s number one priority and doesn’t have time for a relationship.

This is a steamy romance, with lots of laughter. The friendship between Bella and her friends makes this more than a love story.

Lizzie Barber has a secret. Not only does she run a floral business, she also has a podcast called "The Naked Baker" which she films at night in the basement of her home. The money she makes off her podcast helps pay for her sisters education.

Blue Ryder met Lizzie at a mutual friends wedding and became fast friends. Blue, a carpenter, remodels Lizzie's kitchen. He's constantly asking her out but she refuses. When she finally decides to go out with him, there friendship turns into something more until he learns of her secret.

I enjoyed Blue and Lizzie's love story. However, I thought the narrator was just ok. I like dual narrators.
