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.

My Review:

Intro: My beloved computer crashed this Thursday and was unable to be revived. I was typing along innocently writing this review and kerplunk. This always seems to happen when I am writing a review. Luckily I was able to rescue some of this review and most of my files but still computer crashes are horrific.


Heroine: Cassidy-Cassidy was awesome. She is one of those heroines you like from the start and she keeps improving as you go along. She was kind and selfless with an engaging personality. I found it so easy to identify with her.

Hero: Wyatt-I loved Wyatt as well. I loved watching him progress from a kind of frivolous playboy to a dependable and kind hero. I also loved how much he valued his friendship with Cassidy even though he had feelings for her.

Chemistry: I absolutely love romances where the characters are friends first. It gives the chemistry a great depth that otherwise wouldn’t be there. Cassidy and Wyatt were amazing together because they were friends first and already had a connection. I did get frustrated with Wyatt for clinging too much to the friends thing.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: Melissa Foster is a failsafe author for me. She rarely writes a book I don’t love. I am loving this new series so far. Almost as much as I loved her Love in Bloom series. This does feel a bit younger, more New Adult than romance but I love that genre too. And I think Melissa Foster could write a book about insect larva and I’d read it.
