About the Book
HARBORSIDE NIGHTS, Book One
Release date April 28, 2015
“Catching Cassidy was laugh out loud funny, heartwarming, sexy, and hands down one of my favorite reads so far this year!” — #1 NYT Bestselling Author of The Bet – Rachel Van Dyken
Wyatt Armstrong never imagined that instead of celebrating his college graduation, he and his twin sister would be dealing with the death of their parents. Then again, Wyatt had never been one to think past tomorrow. He heads to their summer home in Harborside, Massachusetts, with his best friend Cassidy Lowell in tow, to deal with his parents’ death and to try to figure out his next step.
Six foot two, infuriatingly handsome, and flirtatious, Wyatt Armstrong has always been there for Cassidy, helping her pass her classes and fend off unwanted advances, while driving her insane with his one-night stands—but that’s what best friends are for, isn’t it? Having each other’s backs. There was never any doubt that she would accompany him to his family’s summer home—but she never expected to begin seeing Wyatt as more than a friend. Or has she been ignoring her feelings all along?
It’s impossible to ignore the sizzling heat between them as Wyatt and Cassidy get even closer, but Cassidy knows Wyatt’s past, and she has a real job to begin in the fall. Wyatt may be a sure thing for the summer, but Cassidy needs more. For the first time in his life, Wyatt is forced to look toward the future if he doesn’t want to lose the one woman who’s shared his past and owns his heart.
HARBORSIDE NIGHTS is a sexy, hot, and evocatively real New Adult Romance series that follows a group of friends who have known one another for years as “summer” friends, and now come together after college to build their lives. They’re tough, edgy, and accepting—most of the time. This series is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by New York Times & USA Today bestselling, award-winning author Melissa Foster.
Check out the awesome video trailer for CATCHING CASSIDY (Harborside Nights, Book 1). This is extremely well done. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading on! You’ve already seen the trailer (if not go back and watch it–it rocks) and read the blurb, but here’s a little more background on Catching Cassidy.
Wyatt and Cassidy have been best friends for as long as either of them can remember. He’s always looked out for her. Despite the revolving door in Wyatt’s love life, Cassidy’s loved him for years. When Wyatt catches Cassidy’s boyfriend Kyle cheating on her, it triggers a chain reaction. Suddenly, Wyatt doesn’t just think of Cassidy as his best friend. He notices how she looks, what she wears…the physical attraction is off the charts. The situation is exacerbated following the death of Wyatt’s parents and he and his twin sister Delilah are thrown into a tail-spin.
Cassidy stays with Wyatt and Delilah, following them to Haborside. As Wyatt deals with all of the changes in his life including taking over management of his parents’ bar, the Taproom, family secrets rise to the surface. Wyatt will soon discover that the time has come for him to think past “today.” Neither Wy or Cassidy want to risk their friendship, but how can they walk away from a chance at something–especially when it feels so right?
This story world drew me in from the first page. What got me immediately is how Foster shines when writing from a male point of view. Wyatt is a guy’s guy. I love that about him. He was completely believable as a character and I wanted to know what would happen to him. At first I couldn’t get a read on Cassidy, but I grew to love her quirky nature. Plus, who among us hasn’t been turned around about what we really want in our lives? The cast of characters in Catching Cassidy is rich, complex, and interesting. I loved that there are gay, straight, and bi characters–everyone is welcome. That made it even more real for me, because we are not “one size fits all” in real life, so why should we be in books?
Everything combined to form a well-written, page-turner in a format that had me sticking a Netflix marathon on for the kids just so I could finish the last chapter. Oh, and the heat factor? I had to go and grab and ice tea after a kissing scene. Enough said.
Bottom Line: An excellent, steamy summer romance with entertaining characters and a world that will reel you in!
