Publisher's Summary

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident - except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter - and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux - the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she's ever seen - or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family? This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction. While each book may be listened to as a standalone, you might enjoy listening to the entire Love in Bloom series.

    What did you like most about Seaside Hearts?

    Seaside Hearts (audible version) by Melissa Foster

    I have previously read this book and thoroughly enjoyed it as I do with all of Melissa's books. They are funny, romantic and at part very steamy!!!

    The audible book is an excellent idea especially if you want to just pop your earphones in and relax.


    What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

    Soothing voice!

    Story
    "Sweet summer loving!"

    Seaside Hearts is the second book in the Seaside Summers series and I loved it as much as the first. Jenna has wanted Pete for years but when she is near him she gets shy and awkward and she fumbles. As far as she is concerned, she is not his type and he is totally not interested in her. Pete, however, is interested, but he has a complicated home life; his father is an alcoholic and his time is taken up taking care of him and trying to prevent his addiction from being exposed. Jenna decides it is time to give up on her dream of Pete and try moving her attention to other men, but seeing Jenna flirting and with another man makes Pete realise that he has to make a decision. Does he follow his heart or risk losing Jenna forever?

    I loved Jenna and Pete's story. Both had complicated situations and issues to deal with. It was great to see Jenna come out of her shell and be the confident gorgeous woman she was. My heart melted for Pete, he was such a sweetheart. But he was also a hot, sexy alpha and when he saw Jenna with another man, his protective instincts kicked in and he knew she was his. The chemistry between the two was off the charts and the love scenes hot. The relationship was well developed and they were an awesome couple.

    Seaside Hearts was a great addition to the series and another fab read from Melissa Foster. She is go-to author for me. I've not read a series of hers that I have not loved.


    I was so happy to hear that B.J Harrison was narrating this book. He has a great ability to make the story and the characters come alive. He did an amazing job and I hope he narrates the next book in the series too!

    "Awesome read!! Loved Jenna and Pete"
    If you could sum up Seaside Hearts in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Heartwarming and Sexy


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has well developed characters and tons of emotion with an amazing family feel to it, Melissa Foster writes stories that make you want to be part of them and once you jump into this story you won't want to come out until your all finished with sexy Pete and sweet Jenna


    Have you listened to any of B.J. Harrison’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    YES!! Loved Seaside Dreams


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, i didn't want to turn it off and come away from it!! Love the different voices B.J. Harrison uses for all the characters


    Any additional comments?

    The story of Jenna and Pete is absolutely one of my favourites. Jenna is completely in-love with Pete and when she's around him she doesn’t act like she has herself together, she acts all shy and silly while Pete has his hands full with his dad who has turned to drink after Pete's Mom's death.
    The love story of Jenna and Pete is entertaining and very engrossing that you kept you turning the pages until the end

    "Another good listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Seaside Hearts to be better than the print version?

    I was always wary of an audio book, but not i have listened to 3 books now I really enjoy then, I am a big fan of the seaside girls and love Jenna and Pete. They go so well together, her with having to have everything colour coded size ordered. Pete happy to let her do it. They took a long time getting together thinking each other only wanted to be friends. They sizzle together. Add in Jenna's mom and Pete's dad there are many hurdles to overcome. But with the help of the seaside girls we have another entertaining story


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

    His ability to make the girls come alive


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh because of the comments from Bella, and Jenna with her OCD


    Any additional comments?

    would recommend a listen

    "True love saves the day"

    Jenna has loved Pete Lacroux from afar for years and this year she decided to give up on him and date other people. Pete who is having family problems has always loved Jenna but felt he didn't deserve her gets totally jealous when Jenna starts dating. What ensues is funny and emotional with them ending up together only to have Pete family problems impact on their relationship. Love this book and Jennas OCD.

    Story
    "Pete and Jenna"

    Pete’s had a thing for Jenna for years. Jenna’s had a thing for Pete for years. So what’s the hold up? Well, Jenna is only a summer girl at Seaside, and Pete’s not exactly what he appears to be. Jenna has decided that this summer will be different. Pete better step up or she will leave him behind. This is a steamy story about two people who finally wake up, their friends, family and Seaside. The second book in this series, it’s definitely worth the read. You’ll enjoy the escapades, the heat, the fun, and the friendships. And if you’ve read the first in the series, you’ll catch up with old friends while you make new ones
    .
    I read this story a while back, but just listened to the audio version, and it is so good. B.J. Harrison does such a good job with the voices. He really brings the story to life. Whether you read the story or listen to it, it's worth the time. Such fun!

    Story
    "A great romance!"

    I really loved this story! Jenna has been attracted to Pete forever, but is terribly tongue-tied when he is around. Pete is looking for a confident woman, so he has never asked her out. Jenna returns to Seaside for the summer determined to move on from her crush. Her coming on to another guy is something Pete discovers he's not too happy about. Pete's promises of "erotic and sensual sex" whispered in her ear is all it takes to get Jenna's confidence going. It is a really sweet relationship, but also pretty hot.
    My favorite scene in the book is at the very beginning. It involves the loss of hot water, Jenna losing the towel wrapped around her, a clinched shirt and Pete "peeking". Absolutely loved it!
    As usual in Foster's books, the main characters have issues. In this book, they both have issues with a parent. Both parents have suffered losses. The main characters seem to draw comfort and wisdom from the other in order to help them start to resolve those parental issues and set their parents on the road to healing.
    As always, the narration by B. J. Harrison was superb.

    "Seaside Hearts"

    I loved the character, Pete. Though he played a minor part in earlier episodes, I was anxiously awaiting his and Jenna's happily ever after.

    "Horrible Narration"

    I'm not too picky about narration, but this guy just didn't seem to fit with story and sounded corny. I couldn't get past the narration, and couldn't make it more than a few chapters. It's sad because the story seemed interesting.

    Story
    "Meet my new friends Jenna, Bella, Amy, and Leanna."

    Once again BJ Harrison is perfect. He is able to take the emotions of each character and share them with the listener. BJ pulls the listener into the story and makes us forget time. There were so many times I was lost in his voice and the story that I didn't realize how long I had been listening.

    . Seaside Hearts has my favorite characters so far reoccurring. Jenna, Bella, Amy, and Leanna are still at The Cape this summer, like every summer for so long. They are still watching the men, although two of the ladies are attached to men. Jenna and Amy are still hoping to find what Leanna and Bella have found. These ladies are exactly what best friends should be. They finish each other’s sentences, laugh at private jokes, read each other minds with just a look, and know when the others are falling in love. I am so envious of the relationship’s in this book, both their man/woman relationships and their friendships. It is exactly what every person should have in their lives.

    Now onto the fun part….hot and steamy scenes happen often and Melissa Foster knows how to write it. They are hot, steamy, sexy and so fun to read, but don’t cross that line where it is too much. They are written to show the love and respect in the relationship and are never taken lightly. The heart and love between Jenna and Pete is so evident in each interaction, whether in the bedroom or on the beach, that I could not hope but wish for the best for them.


    I highly recommend this entire series. I cannot wait for more from Melissa Foster. She is an author that always comes through and I know will continue to do so.
