Nice little romance. Some of the back and forth - oh we shouldn't, it will ruin our friendship - was just beginning to be annoying when it was resolved. But, I love that trope myself! I liked these characters and their challenges. Interesting details to the story. I like Melissa Foster's writing and intend to check out some of her other work. Not bad for a Kindle freebie!

Well, what a fresh breath of air! I find the New Adult genre to be very stale. Same old story over and over again. Catching Cassidy is, admittedly, not much different. We have our usual characters: a heroine who's not very confident, who's a bit neglected by her parents, who's not the most sexually experienced. Then we have the hero, an aggressive, confident, sexually experienced male. (Do notice the differences between the main characters, just sayin'.) Here, their names

The night of your college graduation is supposed to be a celebration of a life-changing event—one that signals the start of your life as an adult, getting ready to start a career, maybe a family. For Wyatt Armstrong and his twin sister, Delilah, the night of their graduation instead turns into mourning for their parents and yes, an immediate jump into adulthood.

Wyatt’s never been one to think too far ahead. But now, he needs to. He’s just happy he has his best friend, Cassidy, by his side to hel

I was offered a copy of, Catching Cassidy, in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say that I really enjoyed it!

The characters are very realistic and likable, and the plot is down to earth, not so 'out there' as to be non-believable. In the beginning, the two main characters, Wyatt and Cassidy, and Wyatt's twin sister, Delilah, have just graduated from college. Upon witnessing Cassidy's boyfriend cheating on her, Wyatt, beats up the boyfriend in anger. As the story progresses, ther

It’s true what they say … you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. That couldn’t be more true for twins, Wyatt and Delilah. Following their college graduation, it should be one of the happiest times of their lives, but when their parents are killed in a car crash their worlds are quickly turned upside down. Dealing with their loss and taking over the family’s business quickly forces them to grow up. Thankfully their best friend, Cassidy, is there to help them out along the way.

Wyatt's always been one to live in the moment, spending time with his friends and his sister, navigating a string of casual hook-ups, and never really thinking about the future. But when his parents are killed, the future he'd always taken for granted is suddenly unclear, and he's got some growing up to do if he's ever going to figure things out.

Cassidy can't deny her attraction to Wyatt, but he's her best friend, and he's never had any interest in a girl for longer than a night or two. He's a g

Catching Cassidy Review Catching Cassidy was frustratingly good. Melissa Foster, as usual, did a wonderful job in this book. The way she describes the setting of Harborside makes it seem so welcoming, calming, and like home. As if anyone who goes there can find a place where they belong and people who will welcome them with open arms and care about them. Harborside sounds like it has beautiful landscapes and a great place to spend the summer.

I have to say, this story really surprised me. I honestly thought it was only going to be a well written (because when does Melissa Foster not write well?) friends to lovers story. But what I got was waaaay more than that....I got a story about beginnings, growth, trust, friendship, family and above all love in its purest and simplest forms. Yes, the story had angst, but the love did not. The journey of Cassidy and Wyatt from friends to lovers was pure desire. Yes, there were frustrating moments ...more

Being a fan of friends becoming lovers stories I was excited to read this title. From the moment I started reading I knew that this would be an emotional ride. The fact that it was written by Melissa Foster cemented that thought deeper in my mind.
 
This title is slightly different from her other series as it is geared towards college kids. However, this was where the difference ended. Like her other books Catching Cassidy tugs on your emotions and leave you wanting more. It was a pleasant surpri

After reading so many great reviews of Catching Cassidy I couldn't resist the urge to read it myself and I am so glad I did or I would have missed out on such a moving and totally enjoyable story.

The main characters, Wyatt, his sister Delilah and their best friend Cassidy, have all known each other since childhood, now left college they are ready for the next step in their lives and careers. They have such a warmth and beautiful bond of friendship between them that it's so easy to fall in love

It’s the familiar classic plot between friends to lovers – Wyatt and Cassidy have been friends since they were kids. They didn’t realize that graduating from college would change everything. Cassidy suffered from betrayal from the person she cared about and Wyatt is dealing with the death of their parents.

Wyatt was the type of person who didn’t think about the future. He was a happy-go-lucky guy who didn’t have a penchant for relationship. Then again, the death of his parents fo

"If she were any other girl, I'd pay attention to the heat searing through my body, breaking through the sadness, which I would never have believed was possible. But Cass is my best friend. I know I shouldn't want her incredible lips on mine, especially now, when our lives are such a mess, but I can't stop myself."

Oh, wow.

Melissa Foster knows how to pull at your heartstrings!

Right from the start, you feel the bond between Cassidy, Wyatt, and his twin sister, Delilah. It is one of those rare and

My review

Can friends become more than just friends without ruining the relationship? That's what the question between Wyatt Armstrong and Cassidy Lowell. They've always been there for each other, through rough times and all the good , there's never any doubt that they would be there for each other whenever it's needed and a trip

Wyatt Armstrong and Cassidy Lowell have been best friends since they were small children. In fact, Cassidy spent more time Wyatt and his family then she did her own. Her parents were always too busy with each other than to have time for her and the Armstrong's had always welcomed her with open arms. Wyatt, Cassidy and his twin sister Delilah were always together so much that there was never any doubt that they wouldn't always be together but on the night of their college graduation, all of their ...more

If you've been reading my book reviews for any amount of time you'll know that Melissa Foster is one of my favoritest (yes it's a word) romance authors. So, once again, I was thrilled to start a new series with her. And I'm SO excited that I should get to review the WHOLE series as they come available. (I might be unreasonably excited.)

Catching Cassidy isn't going to take over the spot of my favorite Melissa Foster book. I don't want you to think I didn't like Catching Cassidy... because I reall

Catching Cassidy, the first in a new Love in Bloom series Harborside Nights. Finally I catch one of Melissa Foster's book series at the beginning! Not that it really matters I'm just picky that way I prefer to read a series from the start, doesn't always work out that way. I loved these characters, I'm not really much for New Adult, unless it's suspense or paranormal, but with this one the emotional and life changing events the characters matured very quickly, you see them grow from t

Catching Cassidy is a wonderful NA, coming-of-age novel that has all the feels! Wyatt is a fantastic young hero. He's kind, considerate, compassionate and loyal. Wyatt and his twin sister Delilah loose their parents in a sudden tragedy the night of their college graduation. He and Delilah bring their best friend Cassidy with them to Harborside for the summer. Wyatt struggles to ensure that Delialah and Cassidy are ok while at the same time trying to figure out his own role and place in this new ...more

This is the first Melissa Foster book I've read and already I am a big fan. I had heard good things about Melissa from a book group I am part of so when the opportunity arose to read and review this title I was curious to see if she was as good as I had been told. Catching Cassidy did not disappoint. There is no slow build up, the action starts from the first page and you are swept away by the story. Melissa's writing style is fantastic, the narrative flows seamlessly and her characterisation is ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads

Ms Foster is a talented writer, who's work flows easily off the page and into your brain. I love it when I don't stress about the use of language and just immerse myself fully in the writing.

I am a big fan of long time friends finally working out just how special their relationship is and could be, that they do it in a highly charged and passionate atmosphere just ramps up the enjoyment. As we know that this is the first in

Wow. This book deserves more than 5* but I can't give it more than that. The author has a way with her writing that draws you into the book and you just don't want to stop reading. This is such a heartfelt story and one that you can feel that is written from the heart. You will have all different kinds of emotions thru this book and you will feel them. The chemistry is even hot and oh my it can make you squirm.

Oh how I love these characters. They are more young adult than some of the other characters Melissa Foster usually writes about but they are just as wonderful. I felt like these could be my daughter's friends and I wanted them to be happy, safe, and successful.

I loved the Wyatt and Cassidy had been friends for so long, yet they never took their relationship to the next level. They both got jealous when the other was in a relationship but were afraid to lose each other. This goes to show that so

I know I say this with most of Melissa's books but I totally mean it this time! I am loving this new series and can't wait to see what happens with the other characters. However, there is a wait to get to know them, so let's talk about Cassidy and Wyatt!

Wyatt Armstrong is your typical college boy that loves women. Cassidy is your typical college girl that loves relationships. They've known each other since they were children and consider each other to
