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 fourteen-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 fourteen 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, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Thank you to JB @ fiction addiction book tours for letting me take part in this blog tour.

When I heard that there was going to be books about the Seaside girls I was so excited. I loved Read, Write, Love where they were all introduced and I thought they all sounded like such fun girls that I wanted to know more about them.

This book focuses on Bella. Bella is a high school teacher, a bit of a rule breaker but the girls know her as stable Mable. If you have read Read, Write, Love you will know that Leanna was a bit of a gypsy before she settled down with Kurt. I love Bella’s rule breaking, don’t worry nothing serious just little things that were extremely funny. Bella is a kind hearted girl who seems strong, loud and independent but deep down she just wants to be loved.

Caden…PHWAOR! If you didn’t get that he’s HOT!!! He’s also a police officer with a teenage son. I loved how dedicated Caden is to his son.He has spent a lot of years making sure he brought Evan up right. He’s a good man. I loved the handyman scene.

I guessed the twist in this book quite early on but I was still crushed when it happened.

I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the Seaside Summer books. I can’t wait to learn more about the other girls.
