Releasing July 20th, 2016
World Literary Press
After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.
Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the sinfully hot artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.
When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the heat sizzling between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, and late-night fantasies become passionate realities, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.
My Review & Thoughts
No matter what series Melissa Foster is writing, you can always count on a great romantic read filled with great characters in search for that HEA. Her stories are always a fun and sexy good time filled with strong emotional and heart-tugging romance.
Actress Parker Collins has been emailing artist Grayson for a while on a project, so they have become friends online. Both are excited to renew their past meeting at a seaside destination in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, but Parker ends up being a no show. When Grayson discovers the sad reason that she didn't show up, he becomes very supportive and a good shoulder to lean on.
You can't help fall for a guy like Grayson. Instead of getting pissed at Parker, he went and got the girl. Parker just lost someone dear to her and was in mourning mode when he shows up. You also feel for Parker because she is well known and she needed to grieve out from under the public eye. Since the two were already online friends, they did know things about each as friends and Grayson was able to help support and just be there for her. It wasn't always easy, but they weathered some storms along the way. Now the story wasn't always sad. They has a sparkling chemistry to add to that friendship and they do fall in love while bringing out the best in each other. On the plus side, you get to see where other other fun characters in previous stories are now with their loves.
