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.
My Thoughts on Seaside Nights
This is the fifth book in this series and I loved seeing all these characters again and seeing how far they've all come since the first book. It was a nice continuation. Even if it didn't have any of the characters from the first book as the leading characters, it still felt like it fit in. Plus, the rest of the Seaside Summer crew was all there too.
Sky and Sawyer were easily likable characters. The cool tattoo artist and the boxer. What's not to like? Both of them were family oriented and very kind. Plus they had this great chemistry that just draws you in. Sawyers job added a very different element to story from anything I've read from Melissa Foster before. It was really enjoyable to read how they worked through it. Not only was this a good story, but it had the same awesome narrator from the previous books. BJ Harrison's voice is just so soothing and allows you to just sink into the story.
I'm looking forward to seeing where this series and these characters go next. And also to meeting new people to fall in love with.
