After working hard all day creating his beautiful metal sculptures, Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot babe–or two. But after spending a handful of nights with smart, sassy, and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana’s had a string of bad relationships, and there’s only thing she’ll commit to–not committing.

Passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she’s sure he can’t meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

Embraced at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Embrace by Melissa Foster

PLEASE NOTE: “Embraced at Seaside” is true sweet with heat. Jana and Hunter’s story is the steamiest in the series and remains true to the characters’ personalities. As with all Addison Cole novels, “Embraced at Seaside” does not include any explicit scenes or harsh language (with the exception of an occasional “damn” or “hell”).

We are back in Seaside! And I'm am so happy! but I think that this story is a little different, and instead of just being about finding your partner, it is also about being more comfortable with your adulthood.

Jana Garner’s life is crazy busy with running the dance school while her boss is out of town, She is training with her brother for an exhibition fight, working at the Underground for her other brother and getting her orgasms and sunsets from Hunter Lacroux, which includes her sneaking out every time before he wakes! But something is missing and every time Jana wants to go for something she gets scared, so it's just better to leave things as they are…right?

Hunter Lacroux wants more than just friends with benefits relationship with Jana, but how can he get her to realize that? By helping her to forfeit her dreams, but it always feels like he takes two steps forward and 10 leaps back. Will under be able to get Jana to see that their future and relationship could be everything they want and that he could help him on the road to her freedom, or will Jana subconsciously sabotage their future?

I loved Embraced at Seaside blew me away! It was simple, it was beautiful and heartwarming. I loved the main characters, Hunter and Jana, I empathized with both of their relationship struggles and have past mistakes flash in front of your eyes every time you are scared to make a decision or take a step towards your future. I loved the way Melissa tied in all of the past characters into the book especially Theresa, Bella and the pranks. As normal, the writing and plot are simply divine and totally more-ish!


I give Embraced at Seaside 5 stars.
