Seaside Summers #7
Seaside Summers #7
By: Melissa Foster
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.
Parker Polly Collins has many titles! Movie star, children's charity founder, demanding client of designer and Iron craftsman Grayson Lacroux and sender of the flirty emails…also to Greyson!
But this time Parker returned to Wellsfleet, wasn’t for her charity, her home or even to flirt with Greyson. No Parker came home to demand answer! You see, Parker had lost her best friend and surrogate father Bert. She never knew who her father was and lost her mother in an earthquake. But from the age of 16, when Bert had came into her life, he had become more than her best friend, but like a father figure to her, so she decides that she would confront Bert's brother Abe, and find out why he returned his letters! But Parker was scared, but thankfully her knight (thru a tequila and candy haze) comes to her in the form of Greyson.
Greyson Lacroux has feelings for Parker from early in their flirty email exchange; but he realizes he doesn't know everything about her when he finds her in the media room, drunk and hyped on sugar and with a dog! But when Parker revealed her secrets, Greyson feelings turns into love and he wants to help her overcome her problems
So together they weather the storm of grumpy old men, the paparazzi, US Magazine and Greyson's family, and even tracking down more people in Bert's family. But when Greyson goes against Parkers wishes, in order to help her; Parker feels betrayed and explodes in anger and calls it quits! But is that really the end?
With the book Seaside Lovers; Melissa Foster has given us back the Wellsfleet gang! And I couldn't wait to get stuck in! To hear Pete and Sky's brother Greyson story, and I cannot even express just how much I love this book! I was desperate to find out Bella and Theresa's latest prank, and to see the how the rest of the gang are doing.
When you first meet Parker, you honestly cannot help but feel for her. Loosing the one person that has been in her life since she was 16 years old completely deverstates her, but having Greyson there, gives her the love she craves. Greyson character is absolutely delicious and I seriously need him in my life! Not only does he offer support, he is kind, caring, respectful and (in my mind) perfect!...I wonder if I could "weird science" him into reality…But I digress.
The writing for Seaside Lovers is as wonderful and clean as you come to expect from this author, but the plot is SO much more than a love story, and I think, even more than the authors other stories. But I will tell you, the twist at the end BLEW MY MIND! I honestly didn't see it coming! But I'm so thrilled it did.
I will be honest with you all, that this has been one of the toughest reviews I have had to write in the longest time, because there are so many amazing parts to this book, I am scared to death that I'm going to accidentally reveal something and spoil the story. But if I can give you one piece of advice about this book…BUY IT NOW! Because everyone in the world needs to read this amazing story!
I give Seaside Lovers 5 stars!...plus a million more!!
