Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and
practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she
escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in
Wellfleet, Massachusetts, and determine if she is living life to the fullest or
missing it altogether.
For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the
world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from
the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother–and falling in love is
not in his plans.
From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot.
Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sensual, smart, and
alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew
existed. But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best
friend intervenes, he proves that the blond beauty is too distracting for
Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says
she is, turning Jamie’s life–and his heart–upside down. In a world where personal
information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his
heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.
reading positive reviews on a lot of blogs for Melissa Foster’s books I knew I
wanted to try one. I wasn’t disappointed. I will tell you that this is rated an eighteen and above for explicit
there is something else in the storyline also happening to accompany it so I
don’t get bored. But I would say that this was 95% percent romance and 5% about
music playing and working a different job… hence being unable to have a
relationship. Everything was pretty much centered on this love story which was different to my usual reads. But otherwise, it was reasonably pleasant.
than the second half, which I think led to me liking the ending a lot more. In
the end it was less focused on the relationship and more about how Jessica
needed to find a balance in her life if she was going to fit Jamie in there
too. There was more mention of family, and what it meant to be part of one as well as
Jessica and her cello (which I loved. Musical instruments in books always earn plus points!)
She was a steady person who only did things she thought was right. A woman with
a reasonable head screwed on her shoulders and a workaholic who really needed a
break, even though she wasn’t sure how to have one yet. I liked how easy-going
she was but also that she was sensible. Sometimes more books need characters
he wasn’t anything special. He didn’t have any flaws that really stood out and
because he was so perfect it made him less interesting. What I did really like
about him though, was the love he had for his grandmother. It was so nice to
see someone really caring for their elders, especially as he had no one else to
look after him like she did.
not, but I am glad I finally got to try out a book of Foster’s!
