Publisher's Summary

Seaside Summers is a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

In Seaside Sunsets:

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.

White Hot!

This one has some very funny scenes and B. J. Harrison did a fantastic job narrating it!
Jessica played the cello in the Boston Symphony orchestra. She had been playing the cello since she was six years old. She goes to Seaside for a vacation. Jamie Reed took the summer off from work to visit his grandmother Vera who played the violin. He had developed the second largest search engine in the world. Bella was the prankster of the group of girls that had cottages there each summer. She loved to play pranks on the cottage manager. They are laugh-out-loud pranks, but the manager took them in stride. When Jess and Jamie met, sparks began to fly. Would their different busy lives be in the way?

Fun and flirty...

Seaside Sunsets is a fun, flirty, romantic read. Jamie and Jessica have this relationship that draws you in from the very beginning. I absolutely loved this book and all of the characters from the "seaside gang". Don't hesitate to buy this book, it is part of a series but can easily be read as a stand alone.

I absolutely loved the audiobook of this story. It was so enjoyable to listen to. B.J. Harrison has an excellent voice and is so easy to listen to.

LOVED LOVED LOVED

Jessica went to the Cape to escape her grueling work schedule as cellist with the Boston Symphony. Jamie Reed had been going to the Cape since he was a child. Jamie was the creator of the 2nd biggest search engine. Jessica met Jamie Reed by accidentially clocking him in the head with her cell phone after loosing a bid to Ebay. From their first meeting the attraction was unstoppable. Oh my goodness Jamie Reed was hot hot hot. I love listening to Audio Books. It passes the time traveling to and from to work. The narration of BJ Harrison is woeful.

good book!

This was another great addition to the Seaside series that I enjoyed from the start. Jamie and Jessica were a well written couple that were relatable to the reader, hot together and overall and enjoyable pair of characters. I continued to enjoy reconnecting with the characters of the previous books as Jamie and Jessica's story unfolds. Their story moved along well and was enjoyable from start to finish. The narration from Mr. Harrison was well performed and made for a good listening experience. He was enthusiastic making the book progress well and keeping me interested as a listener. He also did well with differentiating between the different characters making the story easy to follow. I would recommend this book to others as it was a great book!

Jamie and Jessica

Jessica is renting an apartment at Seaside for the summer. She’s taking a sabbatical from her career as a cellist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Also in the neighborhood for the summer is Jamie Reed, self-made billionaire and quite the catch. He’s there to spend time with his grandmother and some of his friends. When Jessica meets Jamie, sparks fly.

Melissa Foster writes stories full of heat, and this story fits right in there. It will keep you entertained from the start. It’s great as a stand-alone, but as the 3rd book in the series, you can catch up with old friends while Jamie and Jessica fall in love. The writing is wonderful, the characters are like old friends, and the story - well, you should read it!

I read this story a while back, and decided listening to it might be fun. B.J. Harrison does a wonderful job narrating. His voice is smooth and the characters jump off the page and come alive. I think you’ll enjoy it, too. Jamie is a great character, and B.J. Harrison captures him perfectly.

These characters are perfect together!

This is another great addition to the series by Melissa Foster. In this story you have Jessica, who is afraid she is missing out by living the life of a professional musician, and Jamie, a guy who is super successful techy guy (yes, I know techy isn't really a word) and has decided he needs a vacation. Jessica is technologically ignorant. Their meeting involves a phone flying through the air, someone getting beaned, denial of ownership and a quick lesson in technology. The meeting was one of the funny parts of this book and one of my favorite.
I think the thing I like most about Ms. Foster's writing is that her couples are just so darn cute together. You just can't imagine them being with anyone else. You also get to go back and visit the couples from the previous books. That is a real plus because they are just super cute together, too.
I've listened to many Melissa Foster books at this point. B.J. Harrison does a great job, but after so many, I kind of wish there was a different narrator because they all tend to sound alike.

Good but not great

Not my favorite of the seaside summers series, but still worth the read. However, I have to admit maybe I wasn't as into this eminent as the first few because I was looking forward to Amy and Tony's story!

Set in my favorite location...The Cape

Once again BJ Harrison, the narrator, did an amazing job reading Melissa Foster's words to me. I lose myself in his tone, his cadence, and the words themself while listening to him read the book to me. I find myself learning new things about the characters when the words are spoken rather than me reading them. There are feelings and reactions that come through in a different way when you can hear the tone of the words rather than just read them on a page and imagine the reactions. BJ Harrison is the best narrator I have ever listened to.

There are many things I have come to rely on Melissa Foster for. The fact that I know that when I pick up one of her books, whether within this series or not, I will not be able to put the book down and when it ends I will sigh and be happy. Another is that I know that I will find my newest book crush and get to visit some of my old favorites. I also know that when I finish her books I will dream of them and think of them after I am done. Melissa Foster is an author that I never hesitate to recommend, knowing that she will entertain all my friends just like I always am.

Seaside Sunsets is set in my new favorite location, The Cape. It has all my favorite women enjoying their men and living life to the fullest. These ladies are my book friends; they are the people that I wish I could hang out with. As Jessica gets to know them all my heart is warmed with how accepting they are to her. They don’t question why she is at The Cape and who she is. They just accept that she is there for the summer and has caught the attention of eligible bachelor Jamie. The sparks fly immediately between Jamie and Jessica. The attraction is obvious, yet incredible sweet and sensual. Jamie, raised by his grandparents, has been taught to respect women and the respect he shows Jessica proves what a gentleman he is.

I have read all of Melissa Foster’s books in this series and each one is my new favorite. They keep getting better and better. When I see the email asking for a review show up in my mailbox, it is an easy yes and I put off all my other reads immediately. I happily recommend this book and this entire series to everyone looking for a fun, easy, and entertaining read.

Another fantastic romance.

I love the Seaside Summers series, and Seaside Sunsets is my favourite book so far. Jamie is a very successful in business but because of his tragic past, he is quite closed off from the world. When he meets Jessica, a sweet young woman who has lived a sheltered life, this all changes. Jamie and Jessica are perfect for each other. They had some big obstacles to overcome but I loved reading how they developed and grew as a couple and individually.

This is another great romance by Melissa Foster and a great addition to the series. I fell in love with Jamie and Jessica when I first read Seaside Sunsets, and having just listened to the audiobook, I fell in love with them all over again. There is just something about the way B.J Harrison brings the characters to life, and puts so much emotion into every word - you can tell it is exactly how Melissa Foster imagined it to be. As always, he has done Melissa Foster proud.

Makes me want to listen to more from Melissa

Another good story by Melissa, listening to the soothing tones of BJ Harrison makes the story even better. It tells of Jamie and Jessica both successful in what they do. Jessica is taking a break at Seaside when she meets Jamie in unusual circumstances when she throws her phone over the balcony, this leads to a romance with its ups and downs. She gets introduced to the Seaside girls and gets caught up in their pranks. This is the 4th audio book I have listened to and makes me want to listen to more.
