Sky Lacroux was lost when her mom died, but since stepping up to help her brother with their recovering alcoholic dad, she has been able to find herself and right herself. Now she is a talented tattoo artist opening her own shop. She is a free spirit and has grown close to her Seaside girlfriends. A night out will bring a special someone into her life.

So we are back in Cape Cod with the gang and I for one have been so excited to read this book! Seaside Nights is the story of Sky and Sawyer, two of the most creative people in I have every read about, but in all stories of true love; nothing runs smoothly.
Sky’s (and Pete’s) Dad is finally sober and is back working in the hardware store, so Sky is finally opening her tattoo store; Inky Skies. It has been a dream of Sky’s to have a tattoo store, as a way to express her creative soul. While taking

Another fabulous tale from Seaside - This steamy, romantic, swoon worthy story is about Pete's little sister Sky and the passionate, dreamy Sawyer Bass - Musician, Boxer, Poet.

Sky has always been the dreamer in the family. She believes that the universe will put the right person for her into her path when the time comes. She never expected the guy from open mic night would walk into her tattoo shop the next day and rock her world.

Sawyer exudes passion in everything he does. He's a wordsmith thr

It was so much fun to return to the Seaside Summer series with the newest release, Seaside Nights. I love getting to know laid-back, flower child Sky Lacroux. The book defiantly had a much more laid back vibe than previous books in the series, perfectly in turn with the character of the heroine. I adore Sawyer Bass, and thought he is the perfect hero for Sky - from his music to poetry. Watching the two work thorough their differences and come out on the other side was heart-warming.

If ever there was a couple who were meant to be together it is Sky and Sawyer. From the first time their eyes meet in a crowded bar there is no one else for either of them, they are soulmates.

The story is full of love, friendship, romance and laughs. Great to catch up with the Seaside gang and their antics, the pranks on Theresa and her revenge was hysterical.

I have loved all the Love in Bloom series and each book is better than the last, if that is even possible, but this book for me was just .

Posted on What I'm Reading

I'm going to in a completely different direction with my review on Seaside Nights by Melissa Foster. Sometimes a song or two will pop in my mind and I think, "man that totally works for this book". So, the two songs that came to my mind were Survivor's Eye of the Tiger and REO Speedwagon Can't Fight This Feeling.

Here's why these two popped up. Eye of the Tiger is an easy one, because Sawyer is a boxer and it's the perfect boxing song (thank you Rocky). He's hungry for

I am a big fan of Melissa Foster’s Seaside Summer series and was happy to receive a copy of Seaside Nights in exchange for a honest review. This is book #25 in the Love in Bloom series and book #5 in the Seaside Summer series and like its predecessor it can be read as a stand-alone.

What I like about this series and any book of Melissa Foster for that matter is that her stories are usually centered on real life issues. Her characters are easy to relate to as a result. They each face challenges an

What I love about Melissa Foster is she's consistent. You know, going into the book, how her writing style is. The woman pumps out books like nobody's business, but no two books are ever the same -- doesn't matter which group of siblings, friends, or location, each book you read will take you on a different ride.

It’s been two months since Sky purchased the tattoo shop that she had been working at. And, with the renovations almost done on both the shop and the apartment above, Sky’s life is starting to come together. After moving back to the Cape to help her father who was recovering from alcohol addiction, and after battling her own depression from her mother’s sudden death, Sky is starting to feel like herself old self again. The only thing missing in her life is a man.

I've always said life at Seaside with the girls is a place I'd love to be. When Sky Lacroux moved to town to help her father get back on his feet, I wasn't attached to her. We didn't get to know her too well in the previous stories, but when I saw that Sky was getting her own book, I got super excited! Finally, Sky would come together and Woah..... with a boxer! Yummy!

One word. Dreamy. Sawyer is dreamy. Poet, songwriter, boxer, and lover. Oh, he's so freaking dreamy. I've knocked every other one of Melissa's men off the list. My BBF list now consists of Sawyer. ;)

If you've read Melissa's other works, Seaside Nights follows the same formula and it is the perfect after noon read. Get lost in these complex characters and swoon-worthy storyline.

Melissa always write stories that appeal to the heart. Seaside Nights is a wonderful example. Sky and Sawyer are each grapling with events that send them reeling. Sky is dealing with a shocking tragedy within and her family and the repurcussions have thrown her world of course. Sawyer is dealing with the prospect of losing an end to the career he loves and taking care of a sick parent who health is rapidly declining. His escape from the craziness in his life is to create.

First things first, It's a Melissa Foster book! Do you THINK it's going to be bad? I didn't think so! Amazing, Hot, Sexy, Sensual. Can all men talk to women like Sawyer does? Holy hell! And his name just screams sexy! I think I fell in love with Sawyer right off the bat. And Sky. I just love her too! She's very artsy. She owns a tattoo shop, which I think would be amazing!

Sawyer is super sensitive, I gathered. He's super romantic (swoon!) and the way he talks to Sky, Oh my!

This is the first book that I have read by Melissa Foster and I can honestly say that I'm now a fan. Her writing makes you feel connected to the characters. I adored Sawyer and Sky. Both have had struggles with their parents. Sky's Mother died and her Father was an alcoholic, Sawyer's Dad, a published poet, is suffering from Parkinson's disease. Sky is a free spirit so to speak, she hates violence and reads poetry all while owning her own tattoo parlor. Sawyer is singer\songwriter with a poets s

Sawyer and Sky are deliciously intimate in a different style than the other books in the Love In Bloom series and it's exactly what makes Melissa Foster's books enjoyable and not cookie cutter. Her characters are unique in their own sense but they still stay true to the Love In Bloom formula that connects them all. ...more

Seaside Nights: Sky Lacroux is a hot romance set in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Sky is a complex mix, she owns her own tattoo parlour, loves poetry and longs to meet someone who is deep and caring.

Sawyer Bass sings at open mike performances, and he is a top state boxer. He is training for a big fight, if he wins, it will earn him enough money to pay for the healthcare his father needs. But a medical checkup has a serious warning for him.

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This Chick

Seaside Nights is the latest book in the Seaside Summers Series by Melissa Foster. Though this book is the fifth in the Seaside Summers Series and twenty-fifth in the Love in Bloom Series, each book is a standalone story with interconnected characters. I have had the pleasure of reading most of the books in this series, and Melissa Foster never disappoints! These books are all fantastic stories, and Seaside Nights is one of my favorites so far

This book really has all the makings of a book I would like. It has a girl who likes tattoos (my kinda girl), a guy who is inked up as well as being a musician and a boxer, and a nice seaside setting. I really liked the beginning of the book, with all the descriptions of the area and the people who live there, it is definitely easy to get drawn into the book early on.

So the heroine in this story is Sky, and I like

"That you wished you'd never come into my shop for a tattoo."
"No. That we are made from the same cloth after all. You lead with your heart, Sky. I lead with mine."

I have a confession...this was my first Melissa Foster book. I know, I know. Hanging my head in shame right now. Buuuuuuut, it won't be my last!

I think Melissa Foster's Love In Bloom series is the longest running new adult contemporary romance series of this generation. And rightly so. From the first book to the very last one, Ms. Foster has always managed to give us characters who have their own personal issues to overcome as well as external challenges that they need to battle against.

Seaside Nights is a part of Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom Series. It can be read as a stand alone as well as a part of the series. Even though it is book 25 in the series, Melissa Foster never ceases to amaze me with her ingenuity and ability to develop new concepts. I always love the way she is able to develop her story lines so that they intricately weave among the other books in the series, yet also tell a story of their own.

Review of Seaside Nights (Love in Bloom #25) by Melissa Foster

Review done for Hooked on Books

5 out of 5 stars

Sawyer Bass is struggling to deal with all the hits life is throwing at him. His beloved father is suffering from Parkinson’s disease and needs full time homecare soon. The only way Sawyer can afford to help him is to win the title fight that he has coming up.

Sawyer is a talented boxer but one more fight might permanently be his last. He can’t give up for his father’s sake.

I will have to admit that I don’t think that Melissa Foster can do no wrong when it comes to writing books. She is one of the greats when it comes to Contemporary Romance and she seems to know how to write characters with whom you instantly fall in love with and capture your heart from the moment she introduces them to her readers. Her immense talent just flows through the pages as she writes these fantastic novels that are full of life, energy and romance – everything that a romance lover lust ...more

Seaside Nights is the 5th book in the Seaside Summers series and the 25th book in the Love in Bloom Series. That is a lot of books with reoccurring characters. Yet each book is a new story, with new characters, and some old friends returning to say hi. Melissa Foster has managed to keep each book fresh and new. Each time I pick up a book from her I know that I will meet my new friends and get to catch up with some old ones.

I get so excited when a new Seaside book comes out! Revisiting all the characters that I have fallen in love with is always fun. In Seaside Nights, it’s Sky’s turn to fall in love. What’s great about the Seaside series is that each person has their own personality, and Sky is no different. She owns a tattoo shop and is a bit of a free spirit. She loves art and poetry, and dreams of finding love. Who knew she would find it with a boxer?!
