The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.
In HEARTS at SEASIDE...
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.
As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.
When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Love a Great Friends to Lovers Story
Pete and Jenna have been friends forever, both want to be more, but of course neither of them knows how to take that next step to turn the relationship to something more. Jenna is such a fun and endearing character during this entire book with Pete. She is super outgoing and bubbly when she is with her friends, but when she is with Pete, she turns shy and can barely look him in the eyes because of the feelings she has for him.
Pete has so much on his plate as it is. Life has not been fair to him, and he struggles with the idea of tying to take things with Jenna to the next level because it could potentially ruin things with their friendship. He also just isn't sure he can handle a relationship on top of everything else going on in his life. However, when Jenna decides she is done waiting around for her Mister Right, and chooses a sexy construction worker to help her out, a switch flips in Pete, and he cannot sit back and watch Jenna be with anyone else.
These two were great together! When they FINALLY give in to their feelings, their relationship blooms into something explosive and just perfect for the two of them.
Melissa Moran did a phenomenal job yet again of bringing these two characters to life and totally pulling you into the story from the get go. I really enjoyed the audio book version of this story because the narrator didn't rush things throughout. She went at a pace that was perfect for the story, and allowed you totally immerse yourself in the book from start to finish.
Highly recommend this book, especially the Audible Version if you are looking for a fun, sweet, summer beach read!
Pete and Jenna
Pete’s had a thing for Jenna for years. Jenna’s had a thing for Pete for years. So what’s the hold up? Well, Jenna is only a summer girl at Seaside, and Pete’s not exactly what he appears to be. This is a sweet story about two people who finally wake up, their friends, family and Seaside. The third book in this series, it’s definitely worth the read. You’ll enjoy the escapades, the fun and the friendships. And if you’ve read the first two in the series, you’ll catch up with old friends while you make new ones.
Melissa Moran does a great job narrating this story. She has the characters down pat, and it's easy listening.
I was wondering when Jenna would finally catch Pete’s eye and I wasn’t disappointed. And following them through dealing with their family’s struggles really brings the story and characters to life. I can’t wait for the next book!!
