Harborside Nights #1

Catching Cassidy

Rate this book
Harborside Nights is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real new adult contemporary romance series that follows a group of friends who come together after college--and tragedy--to build their lives. They're tough, edgy, and accepting--most of the time.

My summer plans didn’t include falling for my best friend

I never imagined that instead of celebrating my college graduation and spending the summer in Harborside partying with my friends, my twin sister and I would be dealing with the death of our parents and taking over their bar.
I’ve never been one to think past tomorrow. How am I supposed to run a freaking bar?
Now more than ever, I need my best friend, Cassidy, by my side.
The trouble is, the more we’re together, the more I want to kiss her, and when I do, I won’t want to stop there.

A summer of grief, growing up, and…losing my best friend?

Wyatt has always been there for me, helping me pass my classes and fending off unwanted advances, while driving me insane with his one-night stands.
But that's what best friends are for, isn't it?
Having each other's backs, no matter what?
There was never any doubt that I’d remain by his side all summer, but I didn’t expect to start seeing the six-two, infuriatingly-handsome, shameless flirt as more than a friend.
He may be a sure thing for the summer, but I need more.
I’ve got a real job in another city to begin in the fall, and I won’t give up my future, or my heart, for a summer fling.
