Fall in love with Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass in Seaside Nights, the fifth book in the Seaside Summers series by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster! 

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She's happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over--love.

Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father's deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song--and maybe even the rest of his life.

When Sawyer walks into Sky's tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar--Sky--the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He's honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile--but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle--only the battle she thinks he's waging isn't the one that threatens to tear them apart. 


I love Melissa Foster and of course she delivered on this book as usual!! I have fallen in love with all the characters from the Seaside Summers series!! This group just makes you feel like you are part of them and you can get lost in a summer with them at the beach. I love how they are so close and welcoming.

Sky is a young lady that has a love for poetry. Sky has just recently purchased her own tattoo shop and is working on restoring it and the apartment above the shop for her to be able to live and work in. Blue is a good friend of hers that is helping her do the renovations and he is also very protective of Sky, along with Sky's 4 brothers. Sky never has to worry about anyone messing with her with these guys. When Sky goes out with the group one night, she hears a special guest sing, she has no idea that her world is about to be rocked. Sky loves the tone and looks of Sawyer, the guy who is singing that night, but nothing comes of them that night and Sky wonders why she cannot get him out of her mind. The next day when Sawyer happens into her shop to get a tattoo, Sky is nervous and excited that fate would bring them back together again. Sky and Sawyer hit it off immediately. Sky tells Sawyer of her love for poetry and a certain one poet. Sawyer offers to take Sky to where some of the poems were inspired by that poet. Sky is thrilled at his offer.

Sawyer is a fighter, poet and song writer. He has a love for poetry that is inherited by his father. His poetic writing helps him to be able to write such amazing songs with little effort. Sky loves how Sawyer is always popping out poetic lines that make her swoon over him. Sky had no idea that Sawyer is a professional boxer and has some reservations about this topic that she does not know if she can get over. Sky always keeps this in the back of her mind but let’s Sawyer take her on a ride otherwise in her emotions.

When Sky and Sawyer start spending all their spare time together, Sky does not know what to think about all of it. Sawyer knows what is going on and does not want to deny it at all. He lefts himself fall deeper and deeper for Sky and knows that if she cannot get past his fighting that his heart is going to get broken. Sawyer wants to fight just one more fight to secure his father's medical expenses being paid in full. I love how Sawyer takes care of his parent's and feels that it is his responsibility to provide for them. He has such a big heart.

When an incident happens and Sawyer sustains an injury, things take a turn for the worst with Sky and Sawyer. Sky does not understand why Sawyer cannot see that he needs to fight for them instead of fighting this one more fight. Sky thinks there are other ways to make money to help his parents. During this time of being away from each other, Sky realizes that she is being selfish in only thinking about her feelings. Sky them know that she is in love with Sawyer and is experiencing a love that she has never before.

I am so happy that this has a HEA for everyone involved. I can only imagine what this crew is going to be like when you add in all the babies they are going to add to the group. I can't wait for more in this series!! Melissa has a way to make you feel like this is real life and that you are part of the family. Thanks for such a great read!!
