Publisher's Summary

In Seaside Dreams....

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his 14-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for - or even realized he was missing.

After 14 years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Cade

    Bella as she is always the joker in the pack but has a heart of gold


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

    "Sweet romance, excellent narrator."

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Seaside Dreams is a sweet, sexy and fun romance. Bella is the prankster of her group of friends and Caden is a police officer, they meet during a classic Bella moment and things just get more interesting as the couple get closer. Opposites really do attract..


    Narrator B.J Harrison did an amazing job bringing the characters to life, each voice was unique and she captured the essence of the story perfectly. I will definitely be getting more audio books from this series and I hope B.J Harrison returns to narrate them.

    What made the experience of listening to Seaside Dreams the most enjoyable?

    Loved concentrating on story whilst relaxing. First read this book in 2015 and loved revisiting Bella and Caden's story. Bella is my fav Seaside girl as she is such a prankster. Camden is the opposite and this is very much case of opposites attract. First audio book I have listened to and thoroughly enjoyed it

    "Amazing Series Starter and loved the Audio"
    Where does Seaside Dreams rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I fell in love with the Seaside gang from reading Leanna and Kurt's story Read, Write, Love. I have this on Audio and Ebook format and the first time round reading it myself I never laughed out loud so much. Bella and the gang love their summers together, they are a close nit group of childhood friends and all look out for each other while enjoying the odd prank here and there!! Even if Bella is usually the mastermind and instigator of all pranks.
    Caden Grant is a Police Officer on patrol when he first meets Bella Addascia hanging from a window by her hair i only her panties and a little t-shirt........things just get way more interesting from there on LOL.
    AS they get closer things start to unravel for both Bella and Caden, where Bella is struggling with her independence, Caden is having some boundary issues with his teenage son Evan.
    This was another amazing book and I feel head over heels for these characters, their banter was hilarious and Ms Foster did not disappoint in the HOT Cop, SEXY School Teacher bedroom scenes. Another massive series starter!!!
    Having listened to it on audio for me made it that bit more enjoyable, I listened and laughed while doing housework and driving in the car with no kiddies. The voices the narrator took on for the different characters had me laughing so much there were tears!! When you read a story you always try picture how the characters would speak and it was a enjoyable experience to have B.J. Harrison do all the voices especially Vera's. I totally loved this in audio and will definitely be getting more audio books. Thank you B.J. Harrison for giving these characters even more life!!!

    "Teacher meets single father cop"

    The Seaside girls are awesome and their resident prankster Bella loves to prank. In the process of one of them she gets her hair caught in one of the others window and is spotted by New cop to the area Caden Grant. Every getting between the two the sparks fly but there is the added fact the Caden has a son. Loved this book so much as it makes me laugh so hard at Bella's pranks.

    Story
    "Caden and Bella"

    Caden and Bella – Caden is new to the Wellfleet Police department. While patrolling one night, he comes upon a scene so funny he couldn’t help but stop. This is his introduction to Bella, one of the Seaside girls, at the Cape for the summer – or longer! While Caden and his teenage son, Evan, enjoy their new home and getting to know the seaside gang, Bella wrestles with the big question of what does she want to do with her life now. Attraction, love, family – they grow and are demanding. Melissa Foster has built a world where life happens, love happens, and certain people end up in funny or sizzling situations on a somewhat regular basis. A fun read with lots of steam, too.

    I read this story a while back, but just listened to the audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed it! BJ Harrison does a great job as narrator – the characters come alive and the story is so good. There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments with some seriousness thrown in, and a good bit of steam. Totally worth the second telling. Hearing the story from someone else is so different from reading it. I love to read, and yet this story was so good as an audio. Give it a try!

    Story
    "Yea! A Sexy cop!"

    I always enjoy the audio books by Melissa Foster, but this one I enjoyed even a little more. I loved that Caden was a police officer and a single dad, an everyday kind of person, and that Bella was a teacher. I really enjoy it when the characters end up helping each other. Bella helps Caden rediscover that there is more to life than his job and his son. He just might have the ability to love someone else if he'll just open himself up a little more. Caden helps Bella rediscover the feminine side that she's been burying for years. She's kind of quirky (picture a toilet in the driveway of the woman who is a straight laced by the rules property manager). She is also a very sweet, likable character.
    Caden's son and his struggles add a lot to the story. He's the proverbial new kid struggling to fit in and has strayed to what may turn out to be the wrong kind of friends in this new town. Caden struggles to balance his responsibility to his son and the blossoming new relationship with Bella.Can he really be a good dad and romance a woman, too?

    Story
    "I love Bella and Caden"

    As always B.J. Harrison is amazing! He knows exactly what feelings to portray when reading Seaside Dreams. The tone, the speed of his reading, and the story itself is all wonderful.

    How can I not love this book? It has my crush from the last Melissa Foster book in it, Kurt from Read, Write, Love, and it has new hunky police officer Caden. I loved that Seaside Dreams was about a man who was also a father. He had responsibilities that other characters in Melissa’s books did not. He was a good dad, not just a dad when convenient. When Bella never questioned taking Caden and Evan in her life it won me over. It is not easy to accept a child into your life, much less a teenager.


    This is a new part of the Love in Bloom Series and I cannot wait for more. I would love to hear about the rest of the ladies in this book. These ladies might become my favorite characters. Of course, I recommend this series and cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the books.
