"Catching Cassidy" [Harborside Nights Series, Book 1] by Melissa Foster

Author's Book Description : “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

5 STARS – Readers Favorites “Melissa Foster has proven again that she is a fantastic storyteller, excelling at making seemingly simple stories complex and heartfelt.”

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.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. This novel forces two best friends to grow up very quickly and in the process of doing so they both come to terms with their true feelings for one another.

This is a heart wrenching romance novel. It’s set around Wyatt’s parents tragically dying and leaving him (along with his twin sister) to pick up the pieces of the new life path that is created from the aftermath. It reeled me in and hooked me with its quirky secondary characters and New England setting. I liked how the plot played out. In addition, watching Wyatt struggle to come to terms with his feelings for Cassidy was entertaining. Yet seeing how they finally give themselves over to their hearts and desire was very sweet.

Nevertheless, the last 25% of this novel was a struggle for me to read. I feel like the secondary storyline about Uncle Tim ended a bit flatly. But what was really hard for me to read through was how wishy-washy both Cassidy and Wyatt were when it came to making up their minds. I understood why it took so long for them to come together but when the secondary storyline about where Cassidy would live came into play it just made me upset. While I liked how she finally handles her parents in the end, Cassidy’s indecisiveness annoyed the crud out of me, I’m sorry to say. And her parents, WOW, yeah I totally hate them. Overall, the end of this novel didn’t flow as good as it started for me which is why I pretty much skimmed the rest of it so I could still find out how it ended.

Therefore, while I would not recommend this novel for everyone I would say if you’re a fan of Ms. Foster and/or looking for a NA contemporary romance this might be one for you.

CATCHING CASSIDY by Melissa Foster -- Read my #bookreview here:...

Posted by From Me to You - Video, Photography, & Book Reviews on Sunday, February 7, 2016
“Remember when we were little and we used to read each other’s palms?” She smiles, and the memory makes me smile, too.
“Yeah.”
She traces the lines on my hand. “I’ve always loved your hands, Wyatt. They’re big and strong.” She lifts her eyes and meets mine. “Like you.” Our eyes linger on each other’s for a minute, maybe more. The bedroom grows ten degrees hotter, and she drops her eyes to my hand again.
“I told you that you were going to live a long life, remember?” She doesn’t wait for me to answer. “And you said that I would live a long life with you.”
I had forgotten about that, and it does something funky to my heart, like it’s squeezing really tight. “Yeah, and I meant it.”
Her finger traces a vein up my wrist to my forearm. “I think I was twelve when you said it, and I think I fell in love with you a little that night, but I didn’t realize it until just now.”
“Cass.” My heart is racing, and every instinct draws me closer to her. ~ within Chapter 16
