[Review] Seaside Secrets (Seaside Summers #4) by Melissa Foster


The newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. You met them in READ, WRITE, LOVE, (The Remingtons, Book 5), follow these friends on their search for forever love in the Seaside Summers series.


Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

SEASIDE SUMMERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**



This is only the second book by Melissa that I have read and she fast becoming a favourite of mine.

This book is number four in the Seaside Secrets series, and the final instalment of the Love in Bloom series, and whilst I haven’t read the others it is clear that you can easily read this as a stand alone. Which is great for a series!  I got a glimpse of Tony and Amy from book three and I desperately wanted to know their story.

Amy has loved Tony from afar since she first met him when she was 6 years old. Fast forward to them finally hooking up one summer before college when an accident shatters their relationship and friendship.

This book is a emotional journey for Amy and Tony as they reconnect in more way than one. They have to come to terms with what happened that summer and I have to admit I cried a few times throughout this book.

I loved reading their story, and the friendship the girls all have makes me slightly jealous – in a good way.
