Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

I want you with me, Amy. Every day, every night, every f*cking minute of my life.

The moment I read a sneak peek for SEASIDE SECRETS, I just knew I needed to read this one ASAP. If the sneak peek had me teary-eyed, what more if I read the whole novel, right?

Melissa Foster laid out all the pain and hurt on the first chapter. I think I couldn't breath for a while there, until the ARC copy of this book came into my email, just in time before I got crazy! Talk about perfect timing. But the email made my day, and reading Tony & Amy (crossing my fingers, *finally*) story and finding out their secrets completed my day. THIS is my favorite in the series, read the the book and find out why.

I have watched this two close 'friends' being sweet on each other, sweet and shy Amy pinning on the hottie surfer, only to be caught off-guard of their past and what happened between the two of them. I didn't realize what they have been through - and how come it all came down to this... 

Everyone has a past. I have mine, you have yours, and we have ours. No matter what it takes, I will prove to you that our past, no matter how hurtful, didn't ruin the future we could have. Only we can either make that happen or run from it. It's our decision this time, Amy. There are no outside influences that can push us one way or the other. There's only you and me and what could be.

Fourteen years ago - they were young, they were head over hills in love, and they were each other's world. What changed? What caused that heartbreak? What caused all that pain?

Amy was thinking about moving on. After all, Tony seemed to have no plans of reciprocating her love, and he seems eager to let her go. When he tells her how he really felt about her, she decided to accept the job offer that was on the table, and get out of Seaside. She needed to finally let go of her love. But letting go, might include the past, and it was something she wasn't ready to visit.

I love Amy, but she's keeping all that hurt and putting it inside a bottle. I was afraid she will burst, and destroy everything surrounding her. She had great friends, and an even greater boyfriend, I had a feeling they'd come running if she only ask for their help, more so their moral support for that time in her life when she needed it the most.

Here they are, given a second chance, starting all over. But first, they need to discuss and let go of the past. Something Amy wasn't a fan of. Would she finally let go of the past to make room for her future? Because Tony is ready, and he was willing to wait until she is.

Seaside Secrets got a  heartbreaking beginning and a heartwarming ending. You can't help but get glued to every pages, absorbed in the story of Tony and Amy. Perhaps, just like me, you have been waiting for this book, and finally IT is happening, THEY are happening. It's a story about love, hope and second chances. A story of friendship: sharing, unloading burdens, honesty and trust. Melissa Foster got herself another keeper right here! 

Love is like this amazing, all-consuming force that sneaks up on you and steals all those brain cells that make you think rationally and replaces them with emotions so powerful that you're impotent to change their course.
