Overview

One memory.
One special summer.
The one thing Bliss had lost herself in when the fear and sickness were too much, moments never to be damaged by the harsh reality that followed… until now.

Bliss York didn’t live a normal teenage life. She didn’t go to Friday night football games, walk the halls with her friends every day, go to her prom or even walk to receive her diploma. It had all been taken from her the fall that she was fifteen years old and she was given the diagnosis no one ever wants to hear.

She had leukemia.

Seven years after spending a summer with a girl who he knew would always be his first love and the one who got away, Nate Finlay returns to Sea Breeze to help his fiancé open her new boutique clothing store. When the new employee walks in Nate is taken back seven years to the girl he thought he’d love forever. The one who never answered his calls or returned his text. The one who shut him out completely with not even a goodbye and broke his heart.

They’ve each become someone different. No longer the young teens with stars in their eyes. But does that matter when your heart still says that’s the one.

She never cooks unless baking during the Christmas holiday counts. She believes in ghosts and has a habit of asking people if their house is haunted before she goes in it. She drinks afternoon tea because she wants to be British but alas she was born in Alabama. When asked how many books she has written she has to stop and count on her fingers.

Don’t judge.

I loved this book. I hope it's just the beginning. The best part is the connection of Rosemary Beach and Sea Breeze. It definitely left me wanting more!

Having read the earlier series it was great to see them tied together. I enjoy these characters and their children's stories are just as awesome! This was Nate and Bliss story that showed glimpses of the other characters we've grown to love.

'm honestly not sure why this book is getting all the negative reviews? It was a great start to a new series. I loved Nate. He's a little bit of Rush and Blaire. He's got Blaire's heart. When he loves,he loves. He got his heart broken one summer,and never really got it back. Watching him sort his feelings and make mistakes made this book. Bliss, I loved her. She's a fighter. She's been through alot,and is still full of life and caring. She gave up heart once,and now she's fighting to get it back. I can't wait to read more!

I was definitely disappointed and I soooo wanted to love this book! The story is rushed and as a result, I did not feel that the characters ever connected. I've read all the Rosemary Books (loved each and every one!!!!) and just started the Sea Breeze but not sure I'll continue because the offsprings annoyed me so much! What's with the names?! Saffron??? You might as well name a character Cinnamon.....Anyway, I digress. Both characters esp Bliss didn't seem to care all that much about Nate being engaged.....esp since Bliss is supposed to be this innocent pure soul. If it's done right, one can feel sympathetic towards this type of romance(Karina Halle's Love in Spanish), but both characters acted so juvenile. Bliss totally acted like she was 15 rather than 22. When Bliss tells Nate to leave then flip flops and tells him to stay and "forces"/"begs" for a date, I totally lost all respect for her. I don't mind meek/shy female leads in fact I sometimes prefer them to feisty annoying heroines, but Bliss was too much. She is supposed to be this shy blushing girl and when they go on this date she acts like a porn star and Nate's dirty commentary is just as bad. I love hot sex scenes as much as the next person but it just didn't mesh with these 2 characters. Again it just felt rushed. Then in the final 3rd of the book, tragedy strikes and instead of shock and sadness for the victims, Bliss immediately blames Octavia. Eli was better in being sympathetic to the situation. I felt Bliss was supposed to be this goodhearted soul, yet she did not have much compassion for someone who was in a very dark place. Ultimately Octavia was to blame for her actions but there were extenuating circumstances too. And while Nate felt the burden of guilt, Bliss really didn't acknowledge the part she played in this tragedy. As you can tell, I had a problem with Bliss.....and I don't know why Nate had such commitment/intimacy issues. The book kept hammering on about how good the home relationships were for all the kids. It would have made a better story if what happened with Octavia came before he met up with Bliss.....because then he would have a reason to be distrustful of relationships. Again there was a disconnect there with the Nate character. I finished the book because it is like am extended epilogue for the Rosemary beach series but I wished I liked it more.
