The Beachwood Bay series has quickly become a go-to read for me when I need a well written story that is guaranteed to keep me smiling as I turn every page. I always enjoy the best friend’s brother story line, and this one delivered a fun romance between two people who have had a connection for years, but have to work through some issues before they can find their happy ever after. It had some angst, some heat, and some sweet, which made this another good read for me. Although this isn’t my favorite read from this series, I enjoyed watching Zoey and Blake struggle to find their HEA. I liked getting glimpses back into the past to see the relationship that formed over the years between Zoey and Blake. It was so clear that these two were a perfect match, but it was also clear that they needed to find themselves before they could find each other. Blake had some moments where I really wanted to reach into my kindle and give him a good smack, and I found myself wanting Zoey to yell at him to man up (or give him that smack for me). Of course understanding the baggage that was being carried by both Zoey and Blake made me sympathetic…to a point. I did love watching Zoey and Blake together, when all the emotional baggage was stripped away and they were just themselves. There was such a great connection that you could feel between them and I loved how raw their emotions were written on the page. What I really loved about this book (and all these books), was the rest of the Callahan crew, especially Ash (and I really can’t wait for his story!). This is one tight family who always seems to know when to hold back and when to push when it comes to helping each other work through problems. I love being able to catch up with the characters from previous books and I think one of the things I enjoy most about this series is knowing that even though the entire family may not get a big part in the book, they all play a role in story. As I said, not my favorite read in the series, but definitely worth checking out. I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

I found this to be another great book in the Beachwood Bay series. It's well written and the characters are detailed and entwine nicely with each other. This book was really hard for me to put down as Blake and Zoey try to figure out what they want out of life. Very enjoyable read, don't miss out! Received copy for review.

5 star This story is an emotional rollercoaster. You get twisted and turned all around before the end of the story. I didn’t read the other books in this series yet but I was still able to follow this book. This is Zoey and Blake’s story. Zoey has crushed on Blake for a while and takes a kiss on New Year’s in hopes of getting Blake to notice her like she wants. When that does not happen she will try spending time with other guys. Blake notices her but acted stupid when he goes hot and cold. Made you wonder if he was playing her. When they do get together it seemed like she took him back so easily. She should have made him work harder for her. I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a good read. I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.

A "Guilty Pleasure" Read. No Cliffs, Stands Alone. -- MY REVIEW --  ** Provided by Netgalley in Exchange for an Honest Review. ** Quick fore-notes: Although this is the seventh book in the series, I've not read any of the previous ones, nor have I ever read anything my Melody Grace until now. While I am NOT a fan of the awkward looking cover, I was intrigued by the minimalistic approach to the synopsis.  The story is written in a first-person POV, most often being Zoey's but later it alternates more between her and Blake. All switches are clearly defined and the transitions are made smoothly. The prologue begins on New Year's Eve, but then picks up months later. Throughout, there are flashbacks over the past six years. The timeline is clearly marked and easy to keep track of. Zoey's had a secret crush on her best friend Tegan's older brother, Blake, for years. But being four years younger than him, she was always seen more like another kid sister. Now, both adults, she's home from a stint in Paris and she's determined to make him see her for the woman she is. A New Year's Resolution, hers, coupled by a steamy kiss is the only validation she needs to persue her attraction to him. All of the characters, whether good, bad or ugly, are well-written with diverse personas creating a rich, full cast. The dialogue and interaction between them is believable and feels fairly natural. There is enough dynamics and drama to keep the plot from feeling flat or listless and plenty of conflicts that needed to be worked through, some more maturely that others - but that is to be expected when the characters are early- to mid- 20-year olds. There was not a lot of predictability. The conclusion was solid and felt complete. A final word: You know how you have a favorite snack, like a can of chips or a pint of ice cream? It's a yummy treat that you enjoy devouring, but then you look down and it's gone? You kind of feel guilty because you consumed it in one sitting and now there's none left to savor and enjoy? That is how I felt with this book. Ms. Grace has a fluidity to her writing that made it entirely too possible to devour the book in a binge read. ------------------------ Heat Level: 4 ------------------------ Score: 4.3 Stars: 4
