Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster!

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She's happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over--love. Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father's deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song--and maybe even the rest of his life. When Sawyer walks into Sky's tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar--Sky--the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He's honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile--but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle--only the battle she thinks he's waging isn't the one that threatens to tear them apart.

So we are back in Cape Cod with the gang and I for one have been so excited to read this book! Seaside Nights is the story of Sky and Sawyer, two of the most creative people in I have every read about, but in all stories of true love; nothing runs smoothly.
Sky’s (and Pete’s) Dad is finally sober and is back working in the hardware store, so Sky is finally opening her tattoo store; Inky Skies. It has been a dream of Sky’s to have a tattoo store, as a way to express her creative soul. While taking a break at the Governor Bradford Restaurant with her friends and families for the open mic night, she was blown away by Sawyer.
Sawyer has a lot on his mind! His father has Parkinson’s disease and his parents are struggling financially, so he tries to help them as much as he can, with the prize money he wins as a boxer! But now the doctor has giving him this death sentence, if he fights one more time, which is putting his parents future in jeopardy.
Then Sky and Sawyer meet, when he comes in for a tattoo and sparks fly and they fall in love, and while Sky is not happy with Sawyers job, she supports him, until the truth comes out and she is left devastated. Will this be the end for Sky and Sawyer…?
WOW! What a book! It completely blew my mind! And I can honestly say that I completely fell in love with Sky and Sawyer! They just are so perfect for each other! And while in other books in this series, the love stories have been rough and tumble all the way through! And it’s not with this book that way with this story and I think that's what makes me love it!
So on to the bare facts. The writing is smooth and the plot is well written. The needs of a disabled person are spot on and the author has researched Parkinson’s disease, which doesn’t surprise me as this is a Melissa Foster book after all!
With all of that being said! I give Seaside Nights a well-deserved 10 out of 10!
