Love in Bloom # 21: Seaside Summers # 1
By: Melissa Foster
Release date, August 25th, 2014


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?

Hot police officer, Girl Power and true love.
4 stars
Hotness factor: Feelin’ hot hot hot!

Why oh why did I miss Kurt Remington’s book? It basically was the prequel of the new Seaside Summers series, which is also Love in Bloom #21… I honestly love how smart Melissa Foster intertwining her series, how does she keep up?
Seaside Dreams, took place in the Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts where Bella, Amy, Leanna and Jenna have been spending their summers since they were children.
the story was about high school teacher Bella and single dad police officer Caden. There must be something about Wellfleet… I have a soft spot for single dads and Caden was no exception. Not only was he hot but his devotion to his son Evan was inspirational. He knew what or who he wanted from the moment he saw it or her. How refreshing! Bella, I loved her interactions with her friends, they were funny and sassy. I wasn’t too keen on her reservations when it came to Caden.

 Nonetheless, this was a sweet and sexy love story about two people that were meant to meet and fall in love. Teenage and sometimes adult’s angst aside, the story had a nice pace and the author took the time to develop the characters for our enjoyment. I can’t wait for Jenna and Amy’s happy ever after then who will be the fateful one causing a new series crossover?
