How steamy is it? Sizzling

Publisher's Summary

After working hard all day, creating his beautiful metal sculptures, sinfully sexy Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot, sexy babe - or two. But after spending a handful of naughty nights with seductive and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana's had a string of bad relationships, and there's only thing she'll commit to - not committing.

White-hot passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she's sure he can't meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

Emotional and Fun!

Melissa has written the most emotional, fun story yet! B. J. Harrison narrates this and he is fantastic!
Jana Garner was a boxer, dance instructor, and waitress with a stubborn streak. She has some bad past experiences from her past boyfriends, now she has big problems with committing. Hunter Lacrouz creates metal sculptures and his past has not been rosie. When he hooked up with Jana, he was ready to commit to only her. The only problem was Jana didn't believe him and put him through hell. Can they get things straighten out? A must listen!

Another great story

First leave me say that I love every book in this series and that they just keep getting better! Hunter is a ladies man, no string attached kind of man. Jana has been hurt before, and now doesnt believe long term relationships are meant for her. Hunter is learning how to "romance" a woman and trying his best to get Jana. Jana has been hurt too bad In the past and is now trying her best to resist Hunter. Their chemistry is explosive when they are together and you just can't help but to be drawn into their lives when reading this book! I can't wait to see what Melissa Foster has in store for us in her next book in this series!!
I absolutely love listening to the audiobook version of the Love in Bloom series. B. J. Harrison has a way of drawing you into the story. It’s easy to get lost in his voice.

Hunter and Jana

Jana Garner is a boxer and a dancer. Hunter Lacroux is a metal sculptor. Both artistic, and both definitely not looking for a relationship, but boy did they ever have sizzling sex. Hooking up was the way to go – no baggage. Jana didn’t even spend the night – she snuck out. Between their brothers and their friends, how could they possibly manage to keep their non-relationship private???

Melissa Foster’s words and B.J. Harrison’s voice made this book come alive. As a stand-alone it’s good. But if you’ve met any of the Seaside gang, it’s better. Enjoy this story and catching up with the Seaside gang, too.

Loved these characters!

I've listened to a lot of audio books written by Melissa Foster, but she surprised me a bit with this one. The beginning was certainly different. The characters of Jana and Hunter were sexual at the very beginning--with no romance in sight! What??? In a Melissa Foster book? Seriously?
Neither Jana nor Hunter is looking for a relationship...just a occasional sex. But then Jana isn't much into going after her dreams. She's too busy. When Hunter can't even get Jana to say that she wants him and she tells him he doesn't know anything about romance, Hunter takes it as a challenge. What starts as a challenge just to get her to admit she wants him soon turns into way more. Will they both ever admit that they want and maybe already have more?
The narration by B.J. Harrison was great as always!

Loved It

I love returning to the Seaside Gang. Jana is a strong woman. Hunter is a sexy heck. They were secretly hooking up for 6 months. They were actually committed to each other, however, neither one knew it. Melissa NEVER disappoints. I listened to the audio book and BJ Harrison does a fantastic job narrating.

Good book

This was a good addition to the Seaside Series with Jana and Hunter's story. The pair have issues with commitment but as they continue to have 'one night' hook ups Hunter becomes determined to have Jana admit her feelings for him as his grow for her. The pair were relatable as characters and had amazing chemistry together. The pair have issues that are relatable to others and are have strong relationships with their families. I continue to enjoy the emphasis on family in Ms. Foster's books as they carry over in all of her books. The narration by Mr. Harrison flowed well and was enjoyable to the listener. He was enthusiastic in depicting the characters in making the plot flow and move. I enjoyed this book from the start and would recommend it to others.

Let me introduce Hunter Lacroux to you.

Once again BJ Harrison did a wonderful job sharing Melissa Foster's story with the listeners. As the narrator, BJ, does a gret job changing his voice, his tone, his cadence, and sending the characters feelings through the words. I could recognize which character was speaking just by the tone of his voice. The feelings each character was easy to pick up on and added so much to the listening of Seaside Embrace.

Oh My Gosh!!! Let me introduce you to Hunter Lacroux. Woo Wee… talk about steamy, sex, hot! He is all that and more. While he is a tough man on the outside he has the biggest, purest, sweetest (he’d hate that) heart of any of the Love in Bloom men. That says a lot because there are a lot of amazing men in this series. A few of them I have claimed as my own book crush but Hunter is the top dog(he’d love that).

Seaside Embrace starts a little different than the rest of this series as that the characters are already in a hot steamy relationship, well not a relationship that they would admit to, but a bed buddies relationship. This threw me for a loop. I had to stop and think about this before continuing reading. It seemed odd that they had a relationship before the story even started. But I loved it and was hooked before I finished the first page.

Jana Garner is just as amazing of a character. I absolutely love how strong she is. She speaks her mind, holds her own, isn’t afraid to push for what she wants, and just never gives up. Yet, she has this soft side, this side that is begging for someone to sweep in and take care of her. Hunter is applying for that job of caretaker, lover, supporter, and #1 man.

Of course, my favorite part of this book is the friendships. The women of Seaside are amazing. They love with their whole hearts, protect what and who is theirs, laugh, smile, and are just the best. They accept new comers to their group without question. Even now with babies and hubbies thrown into the mix they still have time to chunky-dunk and just be together.

This is the story of Jana and Hunter. Both these characters have appeared in previous Seaside Summer series. Their story has to be one of my new favourites loved the chemistry between these two!

I love all of Melissa Foster's books and this one did not fail to deliver. If you want to escape in the wonderful world of Provincetown which is full of the most delicious men on the planet for a couple of hours then this is the ideal book for you!

When sassy meets sexy

What made the experience of listening to Seaside Embrace: Hunter Lacroux the most enjoyable?

They are both strong characters and really want the same thing. The story has the right amount of angst,sass,sex and comical moments with Jana being welcomed by the seaside girls.

What other book might you compare Seaside Embrace: Hunter Lacroux to, and why?

Tony and Amy, again that book had the right amount of sass sex and comical moments

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He just has the voice that can bring the book to life

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The night of both competitions and what Hunter did for Jana in the garden

Any additional comments?

Even though I have read the book 3/4 times already when you listen to the book its like hearing the story for the first time.

Casual lovers to more

Explosive, sexy, romantic are only a few words I can use to describe this book. Definitely a must listen to for all romance fans and particularly Melissa Foster fans.
