Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them
to change their life forever?
Seaside Summers #8
Releasing Nov 30th, 2016
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?
4.5 out of 5 stars
Matt has taken a sabbatical for three months and after that time ends he has to go back to the university he is teaching and away from Mira. Mira is working at the shop Matt's father owns and she can't just move to another city for Matt so even though they decide to have a relationship the clock is ticking against them. Things get even worse when Matt gets an offer that will make his dreams come true, but will force him and Mira to separate.
I feel like I am repeating myself when it comes to Melissa Foster's books. Maybe that is because she always manages to write a great romance story that keeps me wanting to read more, with a great set of main and secondary characters and just a tiny dose of angst. There isn't a big scene where the characters break up only to realize they made a mistake and they end up together.
When there is a kid in the picture it doesn't appear much, but in this case Hagen got to spend plenty of time with Matt and they were a great duo. The author doesn't forget that her heroine is a mother and even when Hagen is not present he is on Mira's mind (and Matt's I might say). Hagen was a lovely secondary character and he won me over. I want to see Serena get her own story and a happy ending for Matt's father.
