New Series Alert, Review, and Giveaway! SEASIDE SWEETS (Love Along Highway 30A Series) by Melissa Ch
Who's looking for a new series to binge read on the beach? Well, you're in luck! Awesome romance author Melissa Chambers has released her Love Along Highway 30A Series just in time for summer! And guess what? You can get the first book for 99c! (And all of the books FREE if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber!)
The first book in the series (although they can be read in any order) is SEASIDE SWEETS! Here's the blurb:
After her ex runs up her credit card, clears her bank account, and gets her fired, Seanna Perry makes her escape to the quaint beach town of Seaside, Florida. The houses are pastel, the ocean air heaven, and the men hot as the Gulf Coast sun…one in particular. But while paying the price, literally, for the last man she trusted with her heart, she’s not interested in any sort of beach romance, or so she keeps reminding herself. Living in the idyllic coastal paradise of the 30A area hasn’t eased Blake Evans’ guilt over what went down three years ago. He can’t stop blaming himself, and certainly none of his wonderful friends can ever find out what happened. Blake’s done a good job of keeping romantic feelings toward any women at bay, and he needs to keep it that way. But when Seanna begins to show him how to live again, he finds himself struggling to keep his guard up.
And an Excerpt:
An M83 song came over the speakers, electronic dance music’s answer to the slow dance. She tilted her head to the side, lifting an eyebrow. “After that Chicken Dance, you got this one in the bag.”
He huffed a laugh, trying to hold back his grin, but not doing a good job of it. She hadn’t seen him smile this much the whole time she knew him. He pulled her to him, resting his hands on her hips. She eased her hands up to his shoulders, her stomach alive with a nervous flutter. She had always been fairly confident around men. It had been the rare bird who could put her insides into a tizzy. But there was something about Blake’s quiet cool, the fact that he seemed to listen when she talked and actually care about what she said. He wasn’t one of those straight guys where she felt she had a good thirty seconds then needed to wrap it up.
But more than anything, it was the way he looked at her—his blue eyes boring into hers like he knew her…like he was curious about her. And she wanted to know more about him—anything he’d be willing to share. He lifted his chin, seeming ten feet tall so close to her, sending her heartbeat up a step. She looked away, breaking under his gaze.
She leaned into his chest, as he pulled her there. She wasn’t sure who had made the move—maybe both of them at the same time. She breathed in the scent of his skin and lifted her chin to get a good whiff of his neck. The subtlest hint of his body wash lingered, causing her to close her eyes and drink him in.
Her hands wanted to wander down Blake’s back toward his ass—his perfectly proportioned, round ass. Tonight, it was covered by his blazer, but Halloween costume material was thin and cheap. If she could get her hands down there tonight, she could get a good squeeze in. He pulled back from her. “What are you smiling about?”
I loved this book! Here's my five-star review:
Besides offering up a wonderful love story, this book made me want to hop in my car and drive down to the Florida panhandle! Heck, if Blake were real, maybe I would :) I loved the story of Blake and Seanna, and how they overcame their pasts to find love with each other. In the enchanting setting of this beautiful Florida beach town, Blake and Seanna's love is anything but perfect. They both have things they're running from that they are afraid to face. Still, the attraction between the broody, mysterious, gorgeous Blake, and the straightforward, smart, curvy-hot Seanna is undeniable from the start. The additional side characters, Cassidy, Sebastian, and the 30A group of tight-knit, quirky friends were written perfectly, and they, too, were rooting (and scheming!) for Blake and Seanna to get together. Highly recommended for fans of contemporary romance, beach reads, and books where the setting takes on a character of its own, SEASIDE SWEETS is the start of a wonderful new reading adventure by Melissa Chambers. I'm already itching to get my hands on Bo and Chase's stories.
