Book 8, Love in Bloom: Seaside Summers - Matt Lacroux
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Seaside Summers is a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.
Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.
With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira.
A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

Just when you think it can't get any better Melissa Foster tops herself. I fell in love with Matt Lacroux immediately. He is a dream come true: smart, sexy and sensitive. Mira is a single mom who works in Matt's dad's hardware store. Follow them along in this beautiful story. Ten stars!
Melissa Foster is one of my favorite authors...and stories like Seaside Whispers is exactly why. You know the men in these books are strong and sweet. The women are independent and yet soft in the right ways. Matt and Mira are no exception. Add in Mira's son Hagan and you've got a trifecta of perfection. And you get all the great friends from Melissa's other stories popping up in here and you get a little bit of an epilogue on their stories.
Let Matt, Mira and Hagan steal your heart with Seaside Whispers. You won't regret it!
With another fun delve into the Seaside Summers series, we get to see the last Lacroux brother find his happily ever after. This family and group of friends are always fun to read and give us a great dip into being part of a big, loving family. The characters are great, the romance is sweet, and the chemistry is steamy hot!
We got a hint of something between Matt Lacroux and his dad’s employee, Mira Savage in the last book at the big family engagement party, so it’s great to pick up this book and see their flirty friendship continued once they returned home. Matt ends up taking a sabbatical from teaching and heads home to Cape Cod to reconnect with his family and concentrate on writing his book … it doesn’t hurt that he hasn’t stopped thinking about Mira since they met almost a year ago either!
Mira is hesitant to act on her attraction to Matt because his father is her boss and her job is already on shaky ground, but she’s also a single mother with a lot of responsibility. But Matt isn’t taking it lying down, and every time she sees him treat her son in such a gentle manner, her heart melts! After a chance encounter leads to a magical night together, they decide that taking a chance on the connection they are feeling might be dangerous, but they can’t resist!
