IN SEASIDE DREAMS...
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for--or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son--even Bella?

  • Caden and Bella

    5
    By Suds2u
    Caden is new to the Wellfleet Police department. While patrolling one night, he comes upon a scene so funny he couldn’t help but stop. This is his introduction to Bella, one of the Seaside girls, at the Cape for the summer – or longer! While Caden and his teenage son, Evan, enjoy their new home and getting to know the seaside gang, Bella wrestles with the big question of what does she want to do with her life now. Attraction, love, family – they grow and are demanding. Melissa Foster has built a world where life happens, love happens, and certain people end up in funny or sizzling situations on a somewhat regular basis. A fun read with lots of steam, too. I read this story a while back, but just listened to the audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed it! BJ Harrison does a great job as narrator – the characters come alive and the story is so good. There are lots of laugh-out-loud moments with some seriousness thrown in, and a good bit of steam. Totally worth the second telling. Hearing the story from someone else is so different from reading it. I love to read, and yet this story was so good as an audio. Give it a try!

    I didn't capture my attention. Took me a long time to read it and Skipped few pages. Nothing interesting happens. Characters are boring. Don't waist your time reading this.

    I've liked several of Melissa Foster's books. This one, on the other hand, was weak. The characters were boring, the dialogue was weak. After reading 1/2, I gave up reading it.
