Blog Tour, Review & Giveaway: Catching Cassidy (Harborside Nights Book 1) by Melissa Foster

NEW 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.

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.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

“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

My Review:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars!

I have been wanting to read a book by Melissa Foster for awhile now and finally got the chance to read Catching Cassidy, the first book in the Harborside Nights Series. Now I know why I have seen Melissa Foster's name on most of the blogs I visit! Melissa's writing is incredible, I was hooked by chapter one. I fell in love with both Cassidy and Wyatt fast. There was a lot of will they? won't they? in this one. I also loved all the other characters, (I have a soft spot for Tristan) and I especially look forward to finding out what happens in the next book, Discovering Delilah, which focuses on Wyatt's twin sister. (There was a sneak peek of chapter one in the back of Catching Cassidy and it sounds fantastic!)

Catching Cassidy is an emotional roller coaster, and I definitely recommend it to anyone - especially anyone who has grown up with a best friend and has mixed feelings about them. You heart will pump throughout this book so make sure you have plenty of time to read it before bed or any of your preferred reading times. The romance will grip you in this novel.

I love this series and I look forward to reading every book! I am looking forward to being able to see how the characters progress behind the scenes of the other characters main stories.
