I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
First off, let me say that Melissa’s Seaside Summers books are my favorite and this one had some pretty high expectations to live up to for it to qualify as one of my favorites.
In all honesty, it was hard for me to get an understanding of where the author was going with it. The beginning felt choppy and crazy busy. There were so many aspects of the characters showing up at random times it was a little difficult to stay focused. There were times I had to go back and reread parts because I thought I had missed something. But I kept going. Eventually, about 1/3 of the way into the book everything starts to link together and the story begins to flow better. You lose yourself in the story instead of wondering what the heck is going on because it’s all making sense now. And it only gets better from there. So.much.better.
Jana is crazy busy and her life is choppy, so it was fitting that the story began that way. I felt like I was living her chaotic life right with her as I struggled to understand what was going on just as much as she was. She has some insecurity buried deep down which she hides from everyone under her “strong girl” persona. But Hunter, even though he has got to be THE most arrogant and stubborn man, can see her insecurities and is determined to help her overcome them. Not always in the right way, but hey, he’s trying, right? Sometimes I caught myself yelling at him, “Are you joking?! You just said that to her and you expect her to want you?” And she does!! Why!? Because Hunter and Jana are the perfect match, that’s why. Although they’re both stubborn and hard-headed, sparks fly and you can feel their heat and hunger for each other.

Melissa Foster has done it again. Her stories pull you right into the plot and her characters are complex & believable. The central characters in this story are Jana Garner, a waitress/dance instructor/female boxer and Hunter Lacroux, a metal sculptor/artist. Jana and Hunter hang around with the same group of friends and seem to manage to hook up occasionally. Jana is frustrated with her life. Her boss at the dance studio has been out of town setting up another location and leaving all of the administrative & marketing chores along with her teaching. She is training for a boxing match & is in emotional turmoil from her frequent hook ups with Hunter.

Hunter runs Grunter's Ironworks, a metalworking business with his brother Grayson. He is in the process of designing an entry for the sculpture portion of a beautification project in town. His friends Clark & Nina are having some marital issues and so Clark is rooming with Hunter on a temporary basis. As Hunter tries to counsel Clark and help him see the marriage is worth saving, he begins to have stronger feelings towards Jana. Jana actually ends up being the inspiration for his sculpture. He just has to get beyond his reputation and Jana's feelings that she doesn't deserve more than a hook up.

This book is another great installment of the Seaside Summers series. All of these books can be read as stand alones but the same cast of characters show up off and on in all of them. Melissa keeps you so involved in all of their lives that you feel like they are real. I can't wait for Grayson's story!

I received an ARC of Seaside Embrace for an honest review. As always Melissa has written a five star read. However it took a little bit for me to like Jana and I couldn't see why Hunter put up with her, I love Hunter. In the end though I could see he was a really great guy to help Jana get past her hang ups. Hunter and Janas story is wonderfully written and easy to read. I think to date Seaside Embrace might be my favorite of Melissa's books, I'm sure she will write a better one next time but for now this one will be my favorite. Thanks Melissa for letting me read and review such a wonderfully told story. If you have never read any of her books you have no idea what you are missing and I would recommend you go and one click this book today and then go and start at the beginning of the series. It's great that the people crossover into this book, so you get little updates. I simply loved this book and I know you will too, so go and one click and get to reading. Again thank you for this book, I LOVED it!!! I look forward to more books in the Seaside Series. Happy reading!!!!

I received a ARC for a truthful review. I think Hunter is everyone's fantasy guy. Totally flawless, good with his hands, and a smooth talker. What is there not to love. He just needs to tone down the Tone in which he speaks to people. Hunter must learn all new ways to be romantic when he finally decided that's his hook ups with Jana are so much more. Jana isn't looking for a relationship when Hunter enters her life. She just wants hook ups and usually leaves in the middle of the night. Jana and Hunter are both afraid of relationships. They are both bad at them. Sparks fly between these two since we meet them in Sky and Sawyer's book. Hunter is in for the long haul with Jana even though she keeps pushing him away. Finally Jana gives in to her love for Hunter, but it might be too late.....I don't want to give any spoilers as to how the book ends.
