I've always wanted to check out Melissa Foster's books since I read a short story by hers a while ago and also I really enjoy series based around families and a close group of friends. I've had this freebie for the longest time on my Kindle and I finally decided to read it yesterday. I enjoyed reading Seaside Dreams, it was sweet, very light in drama and quite sexy. I am a sucker for single dad romances and Caden was pretty great!
I am definitely curious to know more about ...more

How can I not love this book? It has my crush from the last Melissa Foster book in it, Kurt from Read, Write, Love, and it has new hunky police officer Caden. I loved that Seaside Dreams was about a man who was also a father. He had responsibilities that other characters in Melissa’s books did not. He was a good dad, ...more
In the first fifty pages, these are the things I found questionable or objectionable:
1. The physical depiction of women. One of the female lead's friends is described as having breasts "like bowling balls" coupled with a "tiny" waist that eventually leads to a unflattering comparison with Barbie dolls. The protagonist herself is ...more
And that seems to be the theme to every Love in Bloom series book I have read and guess what? I effing love every page that I turn. When I start a big family and friends series like this I am always worried that they will run out of ways to make the story different. I never have to worry about that with Melissa Foster. Every book I pick up in this series is different. All of the characters have different personalities and different ways they bring a story to life. Thi ...more
