Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts.  He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved.  She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

This was…it was a painful read for the most part. I was aching, guys. This is no joke. I felt every painful emotion that this book carries. I don’t want to give out any spoilers so this will be a short review.

Ever since I read Seaside Hearts, I wanted to read Tony and Amy’s story and I finally did. They have so much history—a devastating history. I felt so bad for both Tony and Amy, especially Amy for everything she went through. I would have liked if she hadn’t pushed Tony aside when she needed him most back then. Now, Tony is trying to push back into Amy’s life and make sure she doesn’t push him away this time. He is so caring for her, he has always been and she always thought it was because he considered a friend, when in reality, Tony’s feelings never left.

I don’t normally find a book that has this kind of story and I am glad Melissa Foster put it out there—it really touches reader’s hearts. It is heart-breaking, but I couldn’t put it down. I was plunged into the story and I just had to finish it and I am so glad I did.
