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.
Firstly I would like to thank Lisa for letting me be a part of this tour. I love Melissa’s books and I really enjoy the seaside gang.
When I started this book I couldn’t wait to dive back into the life of the Seaside gang but what I got was a little different.
You don’t actually see the Seaside gang until about 30-40% in, but what I did enjoy is meeting Parker. Parker is America’s sweetheart. She’s a good girl with a good rep who goes from film to film with little downtime. This was how she liked her life until she met Grayson. After months of emails which brightened her day she of course meets Grayson when she is looking less than at her best but Grayson doesn’t care and falls a little harder for her right then.
I really enjoyed seeing these two fall for each other but I would have loved to have had a little more of the build up. I would have loved to have a chapter or two of their back and forth emails at the beginning and their feelings building before they met.
Grayson is so loving and caring I just wanted to curl up in his arms and never leave.
I love the seaside series and I can’t wait to read the next part of the story.
