I purchased a copy of the steamy novel Seaside Summers book 8: Seaside Whispers: Matt and Mira by Melissa Foster and this review was given freely.
A fitting conclusion to the Lacroux family Seaside romances containing a wonderful group of friends, some humor and a lot of steamy scenes. Dissatisfied Princeton professor Matt takes a sabbatical in Seaside to write a book,celebrate the triple wedding of his siblings, help try to save his father's hardware store, and to have a closer relationship with both his family and the woman he fantasizes about, his father's employee,single mother Mira.
Jenna, is one of a set of friends who spend their summers in the beach community of Seaside, a small community outside Wellfleet, Massachusetts. As Jenna's friends have found love, the group has grown and evolved. Jenna's life, however, is stuck. For years she has been in love with fellow group member and friend, Pete. However, Jenna's brain turns to mush and she becomes so shy when Pete is around that she can't tell him how she feels. Pete on the other hand, believing Jenna to be to quiet and reserved has ignored his growing feelings for her, not willing to risk her friendship to find out if his attraction is real.
As they watch life grow and change around them, both Jenna and Pete find themselves at a crossroads. Jenna, no longer satisfied with pining quietly for the `not-making-a-move-Pete' decides to move on and put her feelings behind her. She wants the love and affection she sees her best friends experiencing and decides if she can't have that with Pete, she'll find it with someone else. Adding to her struggle is her mother, who in an effort to move on after a mid-life divorce, has rediscovered the joys of youth. Jenna is caught in the middle of her newly-engaged father and her acting-out mother making her doubt that `happily ever after' even exists. Is Jenna's choice to let Pete go and create distance from her mother progress forward or will it only isolate her further?
Handsome business-owner Pete, who is struggling with caring for an alcoholic father, also longs for affection and companionship and decides to find it.....with a puppy. However, when Pete witnesses Jenna take her first confident steps toward her new life and, more importantly, away from him he sees her in a new light. When the shy, muted wallflower is replaced by a vibrant and sexy woman he finally admits to himself that she stole his heart years ago. It goes against Pete's alpha instincts and protective nature to just let life happen around him. He must now make the choice between allowing his father's illness to continue to rule his own life and fighting for the woman he knows he can't let go.
Foster continues the hot and steamy tradition of the Love in Bloom franchise with Seaside Summers. We are drawn back in to the community of Wellfleet with festivals, book sales and lazy days at the beach. Jenna's and Pete's struggles with the roles they need to play in each of their parents' lives are realistic and well developed. Foster also excels at giving us a wonderfully written glimpse at how two people choose to deal with devastating loss in their lives and how those choices affect those that they love most. As Jenna's mom and Pete's dad realize the sacrifices their children are making, both must decide what changes they must make not only for their children, but for their own happiness.
Series fans will be thrilled to get a little Braden action with a cameo visit from members of the Braden family. For fans of Foster, there is even better news when it is revealed that Pete has brothers and a sister. Yay! More Love in Bloom spin offs!

This is Jenna and Pete’s story. Jenna had been in lust with Pete Lacroux for years. Every summer she hopes that he’ll take their friendship to the next level, but he always holds back and leaves her heart-broken. But this year she’s decided she’s had enough and, determined to find romance, she hits on a red-blooded construction worker in front of Pete’s eyes.
Pete lives and works on the cape. He’s a boat restorer and during the summer months he is on hand as maintenance/pool man for the rented summer cottages. He’s always had feelings for bubbly Jenna, but when he tries to speak to her she becomes tongue-tied and shy, leaving him confused.
Pete is the oldest of five siblings and he is currently dealing with harsh family issues, which keep him from committing to any long –term relationships. However, when he sees Jenna with another man all rational thoughts leave his head.
This is an ideal summer beach read, full of sizzling romance, raw emotions and moments which bring a satisfying smile to your face.
You connect so well with the characters and the banter between the girls is just brilliant, love it.!!
At last Pete put the moves on Jenna, they are a perfect match, extremely sexy we've waited long enough though but that's what it's all about and a typical example is poor Amy can't wait for her story, thought it might be next but I guess someone had other ideas, keeping us waiting I think, but after reading Jamie's teaser I have say I'm extremely excited it's sounding very sexy indeed.
I love how M.F. Mixes up the different occupations with all her characters, so good never boring that's for sure, love everything she does I've pre ordered the first in her next series that's out 2015.!
The story of Jenna and Pete is absolutely one of my favourites. Jenna is completely in-love with Pete and when she's around him she doesn’t act like she has herself together, she acts all shy and silly while Pete has his hands full with his dad who has turned to drink after Pete's Mom's death.
The love story of Jenna and Pete is entertaining and very engrossing that you kept you turning the pages until the end
