Publisher Description

"You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that's fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won't want to stop reading. Every book's a winner!" New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak 

"Like Nora Roberts, Melissa Foster has captivated me with her fantastic, sexy, romantic stories." K. Winning


After working hard all day, creating his beautiful metal sculptures, sinfully sexy Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot, sexy babe--or two. But after spending a handful of naughty nights with seductive and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more. 

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana's had a string of bad relationships, and there's only one thing she'll commit to--not committing.

White-hot passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she's sure he can't meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

Hunter & Jana - Do they deserve a chance at a relationship?

Melissa Foster has done it again. Her stories pull you right into the plot and her characters are complex & believable. The central characters in this story are Jana Garner, a waitress/dance instructor/female boxer and Hunter Lacroux, a metal sculptor/artist. Jana and Hunter hang around with the same group of friends and seem to manage to hook up occasionally. Jana is frustrated with her life. Her boss at the dance studio has been out of town setting up another location and leaving all of the administrative & marketing chores along with her teaching. She is training for a boxing match & is in emotional turmoil from her frequent hook ups with Hunter.

Hunter runs Grunter's Ironworks, a metalworking business with his brother Grayson. He is in the process of designing an entry for the sculpture portion of a beautification project in town. His friends Clark & Nina are having some marital issues and so Clark is rooming with Hunter on a temporary basis. As Hunter tries to counsel Clark and help him see the marriage is worth saving, he begins to have stronger feelings towards Jana. Jana actually ends up being the inspiration for his sculpture. He just has to get beyond his reputation and Jana's feelings that she doesn't deserve more than a hook up.

This book is another great installment of the Seaside Summers series. All of these books can be read as stand alones but the same cast of characters show up off and on in all of them. Melissa keeps you so involved in all of their lives that you feel like they are real. I can't wait for Grayson's story

A Crazy, Exciting Love Story

Hunter & Jana's crazy love story was a great book of what romance is truly about. Two people so much the same,but totally different, on many levels. Their interaction was a fun adventure leading to finding themselves & everlasting love! Great reading & writing! Definitely, 5 Stars!

Hunter is hot!

I have always loved the Seaside series and I for one am glad you continued the series. Hunter and Jana are both sweet and sexy and big time commitment phoebes. Their paths continued to cross to the point they were only seeing each other. He ask her out exclusively and she challenged him that he didn't know romance. Well needless to say, he romances her and made her dreams come true.
