Publisher's Summary

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident - except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter - and is ready to explore other men.
As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.
When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux - the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she's ever seen - or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family? This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction. While each book may be listened to as a standalone, you might enjoy listening to the entire Love in Bloom series.

Pete and Jenna

Pete’s had a thing for Jenna for years. Jenna’s had a thing for Pete for years. So what’s the hold up? Well, Jenna is only a summer girl at Seaside, and Pete’s not exactly what he appears to be. Jenna has decided that this summer will be different. Pete better step up or she will leave him behind. This is a steamy story about two people who finally wake up, their friends, family and Seaside. The second book in this series, it’s definitely worth the read. You’ll enjoy the escapades, the heat, the fun, and the friendships. And if you’ve read the first in the series, you’ll catch up with old friends while you make new ones

I read this story a while back, but just listened to the audio version, and it is so good. B.J. Harrison does such a good job with the voices. He really brings the story to life. Whether you read the story or listen to it, it's worth the time. Such fun!

A great romance!

I really loved this story! Jenna has been attracted to Pete forever, but is terribly tongue-tied when he is around. Pete is looking for a confident woman, so he has never asked her out. Jenna returns to Seaside for the summer determined to move on from her crush. Her coming on to another guy is something Pete discovers he's not too happy about. Pete's promises of "erotic and sensual sex" whispered in her ear is all it takes to get Jenna's confidence going. It is a really sweet relationship, but also pretty hot.
My favorite scene in the book is at the very beginning. It involves the loss of hot water, Jenna losing the towel wrapped around her, a clinched shirt and Pete "peeking". Absolutely loved it!
As usual in Foster's books, the main characters have issues. In this book, they both have issues with a parent. Both parents have suffered losses. The main characters seem to draw comfort and wisdom from the other in order to help them start to resolve those parental issues and set their parents on the road to healing.
As always, the narration by B. J. Harrison was superb.
