Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.


Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

Secrets at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Secrets by Melissa Foster.

I'm super excited to read Amy and Tony’s story, and all I can honestly say is “WOW! I didn’t see that coming!”

So we start with Amy, Tony and the rest of the gang for drinks before Jamie & Jessica’s wedding. Amy has to decide if she wants to make a huge change and accept Duke Ryder’s job offer and leave for Australia, because after years of being separated from the man she loves, she has decided that she needs to move on with her life. But before she actually says decides, she wants to try with Tony one last time; but he tells her, her loves her live a friend and to go to Australia.

Tony is in love with Amy, but it's buried deep and covered by anger and confusion. When he tells her to go, he is left feeling like he is screwing up the biggest and most important part of his life.

Now this is Amy’s last summer at Seaside and she tries to clear the air with Tony, but she has already erected the walls to protect herself and Tony defiantly feels the chill, but it doesn’t stop him from watching out for her, even if it makes him feel like a stalker. Tony tries to get Amy to sit down and talk, to let him explain why he is not the man worthy of her, but past hurts arise and you are left wondering, will this be the end of the summer of love at Seaside.

Yet again Addison Cole blows me away with her characters, writing and the plot! This story literally blew my mind, made me cry and kept me gripped till the end of the book, even though my heart was breaking.

I give Secrets at Seaside 5 stars! and recommend that you keep a box of Kleenex with you, as you will need it.
