Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.
Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?
It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.
Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this tour. This is the first in a new series for Melissa and I’ve been very excited to see what this series will bring.
This book is set mainly in Harborside, a little beach town in Massachusetts. After the devastating loss of their parents Wyatt and Delilah can’t bare to be in their house in Connecticut, any more. There are too many memories and too many ghosts. So Wyatt decides its time they went to Harborside. They have spent many summers here, they have a large house here and now their parents’ bar, the Taproom, to take care of.
Wyatt is a strong man. He has just graduated college and after four years of partying and girls, he needs to grow up and fast. What Wyatt didn’t count on was his feelings for Cass. Cassidy and Wyatt have been best friends since they were 5 years old. They know everything about each other. They have been there for each other through all the hard times. So why now have Wyatt’s feelings changed and is it worth risking their friendship?
Cassidy has been in love with her best friend for as long as she can remember. She has spent years trying to hide it but after she catches her boyfriend of two years cheating on her she knows there’s no denying it any more. While she may have cared for Kyle she didn’t love him, how could she when she’s in love with someone else, she’s just angry at herself for not noticing he was cheating.
There is a great group of friends at Harborside. These guys will be there for each other when the going gets tough. Wyatt and Delilah need these guys right now and they are there for them every step of the way. They will do anything to help them get back to some resemblance of normality.
Melissa really tortures us with this book. Wyatt and Cassidy go through so many ordeals before they even come close to becoming a couple. I was 60% through the book before they even had their first kiss. I felt every agonising moment for each of them. They way their hearts were torn, broken and confused. Melissa has a way of writing that makes you feel every single emotion her characters are.
I love the new characters in this series and I can’t wait to learn more about them.
