Product Description

If you enjoy the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa Foster, you'll love HARBORSIDE NIGHTS.

"Catching Cassidy is 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

"A wonderful emotional and touching story, about friends to lovers, family and friendship that will pull on our heartstrings. If you love romance, great stories, wonderful characters, family, and steamy sex; Melissa Foster is one of the best." Barb Liebman, The Reading Cafe

*CATCHING CASSIDY is a SILVER MEDAL Winner! Readers' Favorite Award, Realistic Fiction*

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. Catching Cassidy is written in the loving, raw, and emotional voice readers have come to love by Melissa Foster.

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.
COMING soon, the complete Harborside Nights series:
Catching Cassidy (Het)
Discovering Delilah (F/F)
Tempting Tristan (M/M)
Chasing Charley (Het)
Breaking Brandon (M/M)
Embracing Evan (Het)

"You can always rely on Melissa Foster to deliver a story that's fresh, emotional and entertaining. Make sure you have all night, because once you start you won't want to stop reading. Every book's a winner!"
-- New York Times Bestselling Author Brenda Novak

"The whole Love in Bloom series is pretty amazing, but Bursting with Love just blew me away. It's sweet and heartbreaking and sexy and easily one of the best romances I've ever read." -- Fic Central

"Melissa Foster has an amazing penmanship in being able to create a world where family is of utmost importance, friendship is never to be abused, and that true love and trust is something that you can never break." Kathleen, Alpha Book Club

The problem with a Melissa Foster book is you get so into the book you demolish it within a day and then have to wait weeks for a new one to come out. Catching Cassidy was well written and a story of friends who after an emotional event realise that their feelings for each other are more than they thought and the struggle to decide on how to go forward without losing the friendship. The main characters are both people you can become emotionally connect with and the supporting characters are ones you can't wait to read stories about. Loved it.

I pushed myself to 46% and could do no more. I guess as I picked this one up as a freebie it made it easier to put down, sorry this one was not for me.
It was so very repetitive to the point I wanted to smack both the H and h on the back of their heads, I think I rolled my eyes so much that I gave myself a headache. I wont say anymore and I wont be continuing with this series.

Not a fan of first person narratives. It would perhaps appeal to a teen age audience.
I prefer the other series Melissa Foster has written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Friendship Turns To Love 28 May 2015
By Becca Wilson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
As I sat down to write this review, I had everything that I wanted to say planned out. Then I started thinking, and all of it sounded like things that I had said before. Melissa is amazing and knows how to captivate an audience. I’ve said that before, but there are very few other authors that have written this many books in a series or ever for that matter and that still have me caught up in the story like it’s my first time reading something that they wrote. Favorite authors are something that are of differing opinions to everyone, but for me, Melissa Foster is right up there with the greats. Catching Cassidy was amazing. The way that the Harborside was described was as if I had been there or was going to go there one day. It sounds like such a place that I would want to call home. I used to live in a beach area and so this just took me back to when I could say that I didn’t vacation there, I lived there.

Each and every character that Melissa writes about or introduces to her readers is one that becomes your new favorite. She does not make it so that the secondary characters fall to the wayside either. They all have their story and their background of what got them where they are. You will always want to know more and what is going to happen next. It’s that draw that sucks you in and has other people around you wondering if you are ever going to come out of the book back into reality. I don’ want to sometimes, honestly. Wyatt and Cassidy are the type of characters that make me just want to jump and shout at a book. They had known each other for what was forever in their lifetimes, but why ruin a good friendship with something more? It’s a question a lot of people have to ask when they cross that boundary between friendship and wanting to be more for each other.

Even though things happen in the novel to both Wyatt and Cassidy to slowly make them unravel, they are there for each other. Period. I love that. The feelings had probably been there all along but they just needed that push to make them surface. They can’t hide what is happening to them, but their fear makes them drag their feet. I kept screaming in my mind that they were great together and they just needed to get over that hump. I was so happy when they finally made that leap. I was excited for them and where this would take them. This is the beginning of yet another great series by Melissa entangled within the rest, and I can not wait to see where it takes us.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Beautifully written, story about young college graduates, group that have been friends forever, Wyatt and his sis Delilah, and Cassidy( their best friend for many years), just having graduated, going thru so, so many emotions. Excitement, lust, jealousy, love, hurt, sadness, death, so so many emotions unsure how to deal with, at a time they all should be happy, at their after graduation. Wyatt and Delilah' parents are killed on the way home by a semi, they are unsure how to deal with all this, funeral, business? The emotions he feels for Cassidy? Awesome story showing how they are thrown into an adult world, dealing with death of loved one's, having one's own business, just dealing with death, and new feelings for best friend, Cassidy, a must read, you will be in awe!!❤️!

4.0 out of 5 stars Reviews from the Heart Review 11 August 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
This book to me was a coming of age book.

What happens when you have to grow up over night? At the age of 22 Wyatt has been your typical college graduate. He is use to the parties and the girls. But all that changes in a night. His best friend is Cassidy, she has been the one female in his life, besides his twin sister and his mom, that has been there. They have had each other's backs since they can remember. The night of their graduation party brings this in full force when Cassidy realizes the man she has been with for the 2 years is nothing but a cheat. Cassidy's life is swirling out of control. Of course Wyatt is there for her but then the tables turn and Wyatt and Delilah (his twin) get horrific news concerning their parents. This makes Wyatt go from a young college grad to a man over night. What happens though when your life is thrown into a cluster? These 3 leave town and head to their second home at the beach. Their friends there all come together and for the summer become one. This is Wyatt and Delilah's family now.

Cassidy has only ever wanted one thing and that is to be loved. Her ex couldn't even do that. The only love she has ever felt is from Wyatt and his family. Her parents couldn't be bothered to care, always gone. When Wyatt's parents are in a horrible accident she does what she knows she has to, she will do anything to support Wyatt in his plans. But things between the two become weird. Feelings neither knew where there start to surface. Cass has always wanted to be like the girls Wyatt has liked. She has always had a crush on him but never acted on it because their friendship means to much. This summer changes everything though. She wants to explore her feeling for Wyatt but he pushes her away. Can these two over come fears? Or will Cassisdy do what has always been excepted of her and leave after the summer?

This was a cute story of two people finding themselves and each other. I would recommend this book to others. The author did a good job on her writing and her detail. I felt at times there was to much detail and the story became boring at times but besides that I found this story to be a quick easy read.

5.0 out of 5 stars such a moving and totally enjoyable story 23 June 2015
By beckvalleybooks - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading so many great reviews of Catching Cassidy I couldn't resist the urge to read it myself and I am so glad I did or I would have missed out on such a moving and totally enjoyable story.

The main characters, Wyatt, his sister Delilah and their best friend Cassidy, have all known each other since childhood, now left college they are ready for the next step in their lives and careers. They have such a warmth and beautiful bond of friendship between them that it's so easy to fall in love with them.

Sadly instead of enjoying this time, Wyatt and Delilah's parents suddenly die in a car crash leaving the devastated brother and sister to pick up the pieces and take the reigns of their parents bar in Harborside, with no experience and the overwhelming grief to live with. Just before this happens Cassidy escapes the cheating arms of her boyfriend with the help of her two best friends and they had decided to spend the summer together, although now with heavy hearts in Harborisde.

As we arrive in beautiful setting of Harborisde with the trio of friends, you immediately feel the trendy, caring, laid back vibe of this close knit beach community and are introduced to their amazing friends. It was great to be in their company as they rally round to help Wyatt and Cassidy.

I was particularly drawn to Wyatt's character, although I loved Cassidy, what Wyatt was going through and how he felt he had to carry all the burden on his shoulders, while putting his own needs and grief under the carpet, was extremely touching. His grief made me want to reach out to him and tell him everything would be alright. The author, I feel, did an amazing job of incorporating the sensitive stages of grief within the story and all the emotions felt, it certainly sparked reminders of my own past loss while reading it.

Such a loss can shake your world and for partying Wyatt, it becomes clear what is important to him and what really matters in life. Realizing after all these years of caring and protecting Cassidy the reason is he simply loves her more than anything else in the world. Cassidy secretly has the same feelings for Wyatt but the with heavy hearts and vulnerability these childhood friends struggle to come to terms with how they now feel, not wanting to act on these feelings or let each other know and ruin their special bond of friendship by the unknown of a relationship. For others the undeniable love and passion between them is obvious, it's just a matter of time. At one point I almost had to have a word in Wyatt's ear myself but his actions stopped me.

I was literally turning the pages almost faster than I could read them, as the explosion of true passion and feelings took over. You will feel a rollercoaster of emotions as you feel that your right there, in the moment of this emotional and passionate romance. A wonderful end to a wonderful story and as I was teased to a glimpse of Book 2, Discovering Delilah, I am now craving more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The icing on the awesome cake 23 June 2015
By ysar - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wyatt's always been one to live in the moment, spending time with his friends and his sister, navigating a string of casual hook-ups, and never really thinking about the future. But when his parents are killed, the future he'd always taken for granted is suddenly unclear, and he's got some growing up to do if he's ever going to figure things out.

Cassidy can't deny her attraction to Wyatt, but he's her best friend, and he's never had any interest in a girl for longer than a night or two. He's a great guy to have on her side, but he's not right for a relationship. But when her boyfriend is caught cheating on her, Wyatt is the first one to come to her defense, and when he needs her friendship just as much as she needs his, she doesn't hesitate to try and be there for him. Even when the lines between them begin to get a little blurred.

Judging Covers: Isn't it gorgeous? Stock images are just that — stock images. But this design by far beats the few other covers I've seen this couple on. Something about that color and texture overlaying the bottom contrasts perfectly to highlight that sunburst. I probably would have gone with something lighter, pastel maybe, and as this cover shows, that would have been a big mistake. Someone's certainly got a good eye…

The Verdict: Best friends + New Adult + one of my all-time favorite authors? It's like this one was written just for me!

Cassidy, Wyatt, and Wyatt's twin sister Delilah have just graduated from college and are celebrating when everything comes crashing down. They stumble across Cassidy's long-time boyfriend cheating on her, something that's apparently been going on for quite some time, and Wyatt lets his fists fly. But Cassidy's relationship troubles are nothing compared to what Wyatt and Delilah are about to go through.

When their parents are suddenly killed in a car accident, Wyatt and Delilah are crushed. Trying to deal with the loss and everything that comes with it, they decide to spend the summer in Harborside, a small town where their parents had a vacation home and a bar & grill. Cassidy joins them, both to support her friends and because there's not much left for her at home anyway.

Wyatt's immaturity stands out almost like another character in the book, and throughout the story we see him giving into it, facing it head-on, and finally overcoming it. He and Delilah are both dealing with so much more than anyone their age should, and at a time in their lives when they thought the future was theirs to shape. Instead they're dealing with post-college life, the loss of their family, the inheritance of a business they know nothing about, a close family friend who's starting to come off as a bit sketchy, and Cassidy, who had planned on moving to New York once summer was up.

Obviously there's a heavy load of angst in the story, but it's tempered well with hope, selfless friends, and the romantic potential between Wyatt and Cassidy. But most refreshing is the realism with which the characters are portrayed. They act their ages, which often means they're reacting to things emotionally, immaturely, and without any semblance of reason. But they all truly care about each other, so even when things get awful, they never turn their backs on each other. And of course, there's Delilah. To be honest, I sort of expected her to find a relationship somewhere in this story, a secondary plot in which we wouldn't get much insight but would be told about, and I set myself up for that disappointment early on. Needless to say, I was thrilled when I found out that Delilah's story will be told in the next book!

It's no secret that I love Melissa Foster's books. They're all classic romance plots, complete with everything that keeps us going back to the genre, and yet her characters are just different enough, each with unique stories, that not only is each book different from the rest of the series, but they're a fresh change from just about everything else in the romance category. Throwing some New Adult and LGBT into the mix is just the icing on the awesome cake.
