That's book three in the Next August series. This book it's about Sam - August's best friend (the main hero from book one and two).
Kelly Moore is my master in creating hero development. We met Sam in book one as almost a boy, that was very cheerful and loving. Next, in book two he is thought one lesson that August told him always to do - check person you are introducing to your family, but he was too trusting towards TR. After events from book two - Sam is devastated and run away.
He settles in

Healing is what Kelly Moore writes into the entertaining delivery of stories she crafts. Her characters are dynamic, you get to know them more as you read and miss them long after the story ends. I think Seeing Sam is my favorite of the August Series. Why? Because Moore weaves the parallel message that personal tragedies are really not personal at all. Characters tell the story of how every life event directly or indirectly influences the outcomes of other lives. Tragedy affects ALL those ...more

Caution! You'll need an entire box of tissues to read this book!
Poor Sam had been through so much in his life already. You can't blame him for being a bonehead when it comes to love. He seems like the perfect guy to Emma, until Sam spends too much time in his own head. It's possible that he ruins the best thing that ever happened to him...or it might not be too late. You should definitely buy this book and find out!
5 stars!!

Trusting the wrong person had consequences and Sam is being torn apart by guilt. Even though nobody holds him responsible he needs to be on his own to deal with what happened. Sam has always been a gentle and caring person and it's his kindness that almost took the lives of his best friends. Now Sam is living a secluded life in a small town and works freelance. His only company is his goat Sadie and this is just the way he likes it. Sam has never been in love before, but that changes as soon as ...more

Another great book by Kelly Moore and once again tissues were needed while reading this story. We met Sam in the August series and we finally find out where he went after what happened in This August. The story continues after a few years that he has been away and even if you haven't read the previous books...though highly recommended reads....you won't feel lost but will lose out on reading August and Nash's story.
Sam has now been on his own and trying to become his own man, not relying on

If you read This August in the August series you will remember Sam. He and Sam were best friends and Sam brought TJ into August and Nashville's life. TJ caused so much trouble and Sam could not forgive himself. Sam left and moved to Mt. Dora, Florida to find himself. His operation has helped him to walk, but he is starting to have problems again with his legs. He is in town one day and sees a beautiful woman in a dress shop across the street. A man with a young child comes into her shop, kisses ...more

Although you could get away with reading Seeing Sam as a standalone but what fun would that be. You first met Sam in Next August then again in This August. I loved Sam in both books. Seeing Sam is my favorite!!! Sam is swoon worthy. If you have read the series thus far then you'll want continue reading it. Sam and Emma story is freaking amazing! Tragic has happened in their past but they dont let that define them now. They will prove it to themselves, one another and others how determined they ...more

Yay - we finally get Sam's story. Throughout the series Sam has been a special part in August's life. We have seen this boy suffer, struggle, fight and now grow stronger into a confident man out on his own. Sam is trying to find his way in life after the hurt he has been through by the hands of what he thought was a good friend. Three years have gone by and Sam has been living in Florida knowing there is something he has to do. Once he sets his eyes on Emma he knows he's found his love. Emma is ...more

Sam still feels guilty and has not forgiven himself for introducing someone into his best friend’s August life that caused such destruction that they barely survived. Even though no one else blames him he has decided that he needs to be alone so he moved away and has minimal contact with anyone else.

Emma has experienced tragedy in her life as well but her experiences have made her stronger and she now owns her own shop. She is very close to her family and she lives with her sister and

I can't thank Kelly Moore enough for giving me more Sam!

I have loved Sam from his very first appearance in NEXT AUGUST, through his struggles in THIS AUGUST, and now watching him mature and grow into a strong, independent man falling in love in SEEING SAM.

Emma is a resilient, strong, selfless woman and the perfect heroine for Sam.
Emma's little sister Tennyson was an adorable character, but the animals really were a wonderful, creative addition to the story. Sam's pet goat Sadie walking on a

Seeing Sam was phenomenal. I loved how he grew into a changed man, stronger, wiser, and more confident than the broken man he was at the end of This August (Book 2). He meets Emma, and he gets a taste of what true love is, how amazing matters of the heart can be. But his secret and his past may come back to haunt him and threaten his newfound happiness. What will happen when he makes his choice? With life and love comes pain, and I absolutely loved how Kelly Moore wrote Sam's story. Seeing Sam ...more

I loved everything about this book (and the series) Sam is passionate and kind and finding himself. Emma is sweet and selfless and dealing with some major life blows. Separately I loved them, together they're off the charts. Reding them finding their way broke my heart and pieced it back together again a few times. Kelly Moore has quickly become one of my favorite authors and I can honestly say I have loved everything she's written that I've read so far. This book needs to be added to your TBR.

I wanted to kill Sam since the beginning...maybe since the end of This August!
He blamed himself for things that were beyond his control, and he left.

He met a sweet girl later...and that is when the book really started.

Loved the story. Sweet girl, confused Sam. Great side characters, and as I am getting used to with this author...an unexpected evil that will keep you in your toes!
Another good book. You can read this as standalone, but it would be much better if you first go to #1 and 2

From the moment I started reading Sam's story, I knew I couldn't stop. I could feel the raw emotions that flew out of Kelly for Sam & Emma. If you haven't read any of Kelly's August series, puck them up now because you won't be disappointed. Then make sure you read this one too so you can understand just how far Sam has come & grown. The love scenes were steamy yet filled with so much passion that you won't want to miss this. Great job Kelly!!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I loved this book and watching Sam grow into the man he was meant to be. But, with any growth there are bound to be some pains. Reading this book made me laugh and cry and fall more in love with Sam than I already had in Next August and This August. Seeing Sam is a great name for this book and I highly recommend reading it.

There are not words to adequately describe how I feel about this series and this book. Phenominal doesn"t seem enough but it is correct. Kelly Moore has such a talent with writing a story and making you a part of it as you are reading. The story unfolds as if it is happening all around you. The emotions are so intense and heartfelt. Tissues are needed but in the best way. This book is absolutely a must read. A one click purchase. To find out what happens with Sam and Emma get your copy today. ...more

Seeing Sam is book three in the August Series by Kelly Moore. Sam was a secondary character from this series, but this character was so lovable that everyone wanted more of Sam! When we saw Sam in August and Nash's books, Sam was young and sweet. But once Sam left home looking for himself, he really grew up and learned to become his own man.
So many things happen with this character. He learns to live on his own without help from August. He meets and falls in love for the first time, and the

Although I loved the plot of Sam’s story, I found myself so frustrated with his stubborn character, wanting to jump into the book and strangle him. I wanted to scream, “how can you mess up something so perfect,” but this is what makes a great story in my eyes. I quickly engaged and related to the characters feeling drawn into their joys and sorrows throughout the novel. The dialogue between characters was honest and real making the characters almost jump off the page and feel as if you know ...more

Loved this book! After putting his best friends in danger, Sam runs off to find himself and the man he wants to be, only to have his past medical problems slowly come back. Meeting Emma was love at first sight for him. Her big heart and caring ways swallowed him in, her looks and the chemistry they share being a bonus, not caring that she couldn't physically see him. Putting his pain aside, he is selfless in the act of selling his property and paying for the surgery she needs to get her sight ...more
Romance Between The Sheets
Seeing Sam is my favorite of the Next August series and that is saying something as I LOVED Next August when August and Nash first get together.

Firstly, I love the cover of this book and I can see the significance to the storyline. Seeing Sam flowed easily, the build up was perfect and it jumped time at the right moments.

Two moments in this story brought me to tears and had me full of apprehension, both times Sam is heading to New York City!

Sam is the one character in this whole series that has

Make sure you have a box (or two) of tissues handy before you start reading this book. Kelly Moore is one of the best authors that I have read that knows how to touch your heart. She doesn't just write a sappy love story. She intricately weaves the plot and characters so you are sucked in, and leaves you wanting more at the end. Each character has a story. Even if you've never experienced what the characters have, you still feel a personal connection to them. I am a huge fan of Kelly Moore, and ...more

Sometimes the only forgiveness that matters is forgiving yourself. Love can save us all. Sam is willing to give up everything once he finds her. His reason for being, the reason he has been searching for. Only through her can he truly see himself. His love for her knows no bounds, he's even willing to give her up to give her back the one thing that he can give her. Seeing Sam through her eyes and the eyes of everyone that loves him is a beautiful story with twists and turns that keep you hanging ...more

I absolutely loved this book and was emotionally involved from page one until the end. Sam Sawyer finds out he needs to see a specialist. He meets Emma Flinn and it's love at first sight ( which he never believed in). She has issues in which he helps her, but is he keeping a secret from her? Will she forgive him? I cried really hard in this book-will they find their happy ever after? You'll have to buy the book and go through all the emotions that I experienced. I voluntarily read an advanced ...more

After giving in and experiencing things with Emma, he can't forgive himself for leaving her. Will she ever forgive him and work things out? Or will he be alone forever?
