Jessica Ayers has been living her life to please her mother and has always focused on being the best cellist that she could be. She has achieved more than most her age in the music industry, but because of her dedication she hasn't had much of a social life. She decides to take a hiatus from the Boston Symphony Orchestra and heads to the Seaside Community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. There she meets Jamie Reed, and the attraction is instant. Jamie and Jessica hit it off and things begin to heat up right away. But when some trouble arises with Jamie's work, his best friend and lawyer comes to town and stirs up questions and doubts where Jessica is concerned. Soon Jamie and Jessica are left to wonder if they should walk away or take a chance on love together.
I really liked both Jamie and Jessica. Both of them were very successful at what they do for a living, but had not had much luck when it came to their dating lives. Where Jamie was a computer geek, Jessica had no clue what she was doing. But I loved how they both were able to bond and connect over music. Jamie understood Jessica's passion because of his connection with his grandmother, and I loved that he was so impressed by Jessica's accomplishments. They connected beyond just the physical, and I think that was what made their bond so strong. Jamie was such a sweet guy, and I absolutely loved his relationship with his grandmother. She had helped raise him after he lost his parents, and they just had this special bond that you don't often see. I think his relationship with her was what made him appreciate Jessica so much. Jessica was strong and determined, but she hadn't ever really had many friends or dates. But Jamie helped to loosen her up, and I enjoyed seeing them get to know one another.
Overall, I thought that this was another winner from Melissa Foster. I think that each book in this series just seems to get better, and I know that each time I start one of these stories that it will be a solid read. Melissa Foster always delivers a heartfelt story filled with characters that are easy to root for and fall in love with. I honestly cannot recommend these books enough for those looking for a great contemporary read. You definitely can't go wrong with any of her Love In Bloom books, and I think that fans of contemporary romance will find this series to be as enjoyable as I have. If you haven't read any of these, I highly recommend you give them a shot.
