Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She's as 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.

Perfect emotional match!
Sky and Sawyer = all the feels! The latest dose of Melissa’s Seaside stories does not disappoint. I’ve gotten to know Sky through the earlier Seaside books and was looking forward to her story! Sawyer seems to be a perfect match for Sky in pretty much every way except for one…he’s a boxer. Sky has a hard time wrapping her head around someone fighting as a career, especially, sweet, sensitive Sawyer. Sawyer just wants to do right by his parents and help get his ailing father the help that he needs.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Sky and Sawyer’s story. It is also gave me another change to catch up with the rest of the Seaside gang
Sky and Sawyer
Seaside Nights by Melissa Foster is full of so many emotions from joy, hope, love, loss, pregnancy and health issues to laugh out loud moments. I love the pranks of the girls in this book! Skinny dipping, sex toys, tattoos, boxing all add to the imagery in this story. I love how the girls all have deep friendships and are there for each other. BJ Harrison does a wonderful job bringing the characters to life with his performance. He adds the right emotions with his voice. The poetry in this book was so heartfelt and I loved how the author incorporated it in the story.
Love Sky & Sawyer!
Sky Lacroux and Sawyer Bass are one of my favorite couples. Sky has a soulful spirit, loves poetry, art and owns her own tattoo shop. She loves hanging out with her family and friends and is happy that they each have found their forever love, but she is wishful that someday she’ll find hers.
Sawyer is a singer, songwriter, poet and above all else a boxer.
When Sawyer performs one night at a bar that Sky and her friends are at, Sky is mesmerized by his soulful voice and lyrics of the song. When he scans the crowd while up on stage, he makes brief eye contact with Sky. When he returns to the bar, their eyes meet again. Inspiration hits and he starts to write lyrics down on napkins as they pop into his mind. Sky cannot stop thinking about Sawyer and as fate would have it, he walks into her shop for a new tattoo. She is completely tongue-tied. As Sawyer removes his shirt, Sky is amazed not only by how sexy he is but also the lyrics tattooed on his back. When Sawyer notices his father’s poetry book on the counter, he tells Sky he knows the place that inspired one of the poems and asks her if she’d like to go there; of course, she accepts.
As their relationship builds, they realize their souls are a match to one another but Sky struggles with the fact that Sawyer is a boxer. When he tells her the reasoning for this one last fight, she tries to be supportive until a cheap shot at a sparring match reveals Sawyer’s secret. Will his need for his father’s long-term care and her need to keep him safe tear them apart or will the universe step in and bring these kindred spirits back together?
BJ Harrison did a great job narrating Sky and Sawyer’s story.
