Summary

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he's misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she's ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she's prepared to hole up and mourn - and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn't count on the sinfully hot artist she's been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn't stop him from feeling protective of the woman who's consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker's plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker's past unfolds, they're led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they've found.

When dreams do come true

Would you consider the audio edition of Seaside Lovers to be better than the print version?

Yes. When I am reading I tend to speed read and miss bits of the book. When you listen to a book you hear it all.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Seaside Lovers?

Your lover is calling, Your lover is calling. Bella strikes again when pranking Teresa.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

When all the Seaside ladies came to see Parker when she was at the pier

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

It made me laugh with the Bella prank. Cry at the emotianal meeting with Abe and Sarah,

Any additional comments?

I forgot how good this book really is. Loved it

Melissa Foster writes what we all want to find!

This is another delightful Melissa Foster read. It has a famous actress character, but Ms. Foster is one of the few authors that doesn't lose me immediately because of that. She is so good at putting the focus on their emotions and what is going on in other parts of their lives!
Parker, the actress, has just lost a loved one and has retreated to lick her wounds in private, when Grayson shows up. She has hired him to do some work on her house and over the months of emails, they have become quite intrigued with each other. Grayson is the supportive, understanding type of guy that everyone wants. It doesn't hurt that he's gorgeous, either. He even fall in love with Parker's dog!
There's a certain amount of mystery (maybe the unknown is a better term) in the story. It's not intrigue or suspense, but just Parker and Grayson trying to figure some stuff out from things Parker was left when her friend(s) died. There's also the right amount of romance and sex that is found in every Melissa Foster book. The couples she writes are always just so darn cute together! She writes what we all want to find if we haven't already. (Long sigh..........).

Fantastic

I listened to the Audio Book of Seaside Lovers. The narration of BJ Harrison is fantastic. I love listening to him.
I always love returning to the Seaside gang. Parker is a famous actress and Grayson is an artist who have correspond and fell for each other over months of email. When the two got together it was hot. Seaside Lovers had a twist I never expected. I truly do not know how Melissa does it. She writes so many book and none of them disappoint. This book is a HEA with no cliffhangers.

good book

Parker and Grayson's story started as a story filled with grief as she starts their story with dealing with the loss of her friend Bert and while dealing with such grief faced and admitted to her feelings for Grayson. The pair have a few hurdles that they need to cross such as Parker's fame and the long distance between their careers. The pair were a great couple with chemistry and their story while sad was also uplifting as Parker learns some details of her past as well. I enjoyed their story from the start and would recommend it to others. The narration from Mr. Harrison was enthusiastic and engaging making the entire story enjoyable to listen to as well.

I definitely recommend checking out Seaside Lover

I feel like a broken record... but BJ Harrison has the most amazing voice I have ever heard. He takes Melissa Foster's amazing story and makes it come alive with his tone, his changes in voice, and with his amazing reading.

I always talk about how amazing the characters are in Melissa Foster’s books and Parker and Grayson are no exception. They are absolutely wonderful. Not perfect, not fatally flawed, just normal and real people. The kind of people you want to be friends with, the kind of people you see on the street, and the kind of people that deserve to find happiness.

In Seaside Lovers, as with the rest of the series, Melissa Foster does an amazing job describing the settings. From the media room that Grayson finds Parker drowning her sorrows in to the elevator that they take to visit Abe every place is described in such clarity that I could truly picture where the book was taking place. I could see the cliff where Grayson really kissed Parker for the first time. My favorite type of book to read is one that sees to play like a movie while I read it. Seaside Lovers does exactly that.

This is part of the Love in Bloom series and the spin off series of Seaside Summers. Yet it is truly a standalone book. The characters appear in each other’s books but each book is its own story. Melissa Foster does a magnificent job of letting the reader know just enough background of the other characters and who belongs to who that if you pick up a book out of order you can enjoy the story.

I definitely recommend checking out Seaside Lovers right away.
