A love story that is beautiful and fresh and deals with some very sensitive issues. Aaron Paul Lazar, wrote a very pleasant and enjoyable book. First love is one which is most memorable. What a pleasure to read a book with love scenes that are sensual and sexy while remaining tasteful and beautiful.
There are lots of surprises and twists, and when you wonder what more can go wrong in the life of such a caring and wonderful young man,Finn McGraw,how much more can he endure, the final twist is one that makes this so worthwhile reading. Love does conquer all in the end.
I really recommend this book and if you want to read a beautiful love story,that is well written, and leaves you with a good feeling at the end, this is the one.

This novel is emotionally charged. Lazar maintains a very personal contact with his audience through his writing. He keeps you coming back for more, while you experience each and every feeling and event right alongside the main character. Lazar writes about the type of love that you want. The type of love that you don’t mind going through hell and back to get.

Lazar melds the past with the present in this remarkable tale. By flipping between the two in ‘flashback mode’ we get the full experience of the main character’s love life. You can feel life coming around in a full circle. As a reader, you feel like it’s something that’s happened to you. Not necessarily the exact storyline, but the past haunting your present. The writing style also changes with the flashbacks. You can feel the difference between the teen and the adult.

Also, telling the story from the male POV adds an element of calm and realism. You get all the romance without the craziness, and cars definitely make a play in the story. I also have to thank Lazar for his honesty and accuracy in this novel. His horses are real horses, not some idealized version thereof. I really appreciated seeing an author take the time and effort to do this. It allowed me to fully immerse myself in this story without worry.

This is one of those stories you can’t put down. I was holding on to it like a lifeline. Lazar is a brilliant author who evokes all of your emotions and makes the best and the worst of situations shine.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This book was such a pleasant surprise. I had read some of this author's well-written mysteries in the past, but I was sceptical about him pulling off a love story. Was I wrong!

The Seacrest is a fabulous read! Lazar's voice is honest and intimate, emotional without being melodramatic. His style is fresh and engaging. This story is a wonderful portrait of a young man who falls in love and never gives up in spite of all the barriers and tragedies that destiny brings his way. The characters are genuine and excellently drawn; the family dynamics poignant and compelling.

Themes of love, forgiveness, and redemption further add insight to this fabulous tale. If you love the work of Richard Paul Evans and Nicholas Sparks, you'll love the work of Aaron Lazar. Highly recommended!

Spanning over a decade, Seacrest is an unapologetically sensual love story. At 17 Finn McGraw falls in love with his sixteen year old girlfriend. Together they explore the explosive depths of love as only teenagers can. Events conspire to pull them apart and Finn though heartbroken, is never given an explanation.

He is grieving a series of devastating personal tragedies when, ten years later, they begin to become reacquainted. Through the fog of his grief they are given a second chance to learn about each other and to decide whether to rekindle their love. And then that chance is nearly snatched away by unforeseen events.

Seacrest is a story of growing up and love and understandings and and misunderstandings. Aaron Paul Lazar takes his reader on a ride that moves between wildly intense and slowly sensuous. It is a gripping love story that transports readers to a land of sea and lovers and life.

The Seacrest by Aaron Paul Lazar
Finn McGraw grows up on the cape in MA where his family runs the blueberry farm during the summer months.
I feel like this is two books in one because each chapter tells of a different age of the characters.
The chapters alternate in time and that is sometimes confusing. There are mainly two people-when they first meet on the beach and spend time to get to know one another. First love and sex scenes.
And the present day where the woman has died along with his brother and he now owns everything his brother had.
He is living and working at the manor of Seacrest and Libby is the one that gets him up and moving rather than just lying around the cottage on the estate after he learns of his wife's passing.
Through each of the time frames we learn of the family's past and how the others had died...
So much pain when he finds out what his brother did that broke he and Sassy up from dating.
Love the location of the sea and the cape and journeys throughout the book. Love the story line but not all the sex scenes-was a bit much.
I received this book from Vickie Dold I.O. Book Tours via the author for my honest review.
