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.

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.
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.
