Brook Cottage Books Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway: Seaside Secrets (Melissa Foster)

Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

I have read several of Melissa Fosters books and I am not sure any of them have shocked me as much as this one, Seaside Secrets. I first fell in love with this group of friends when I read Seaside Dreams.

 I was so excited to read more about the attraction between Amy and Tony. I thought Amy was just to scared to tell Tony how she felt and I thought Tony was a surfer dude who didn't want a committed relationship. Boy was I wrong!!!! The past secret they shared was so full of emotion! 

 I highly recommend any book by Melissa Foster! I give this one 5 stars.
