Catching Cassidy Review

Catching Cassidy (Harborside Nights, Book One) New Adult Romance - Melissa Foster

Catching Cassidy was frustratingly good. Melissa Foster, as usual, did a wonderful job in this book. The way she describes the setting of Harborside makes it seem so welcoming, calming, and like home. As if anyone who goes there can find a place where they belong and people who will welcome them with open arms and care about them. Harborside sounds like it has beautiful landscapes and a great place to spend the summer.


The way Melissa makes the characters come alive makes the reader fall in love with them. Each character, even the secondary characters, have traits that makes their personality shine through and make them likable. I kept finding myself wanting to know more about the characters and what would happen next with them. I loved how close their friendships seemed.

The reason I found the book frustrating was because of the main characters, Wyatt and Cassidy. They had known each other for years, back from when they were kids. They were best friends and buried the feelings they had for each other deep down. Neither wanted to ruin the friendship they had spent so many years forming.


The summer of Wyatt and Cassidy's college graduation several events happen that cause them to spend the summer together. Those events have the capability of making each person fall apart. They stand by each other's side to try to make it through together.


Feelings that they had buried down start to rise. Now they find an attraction to each other that both characters try to hide and ignore. It's like they're skirting around each other out of desire and fear of what acting on those feelings could happen. I kept wanting Wyatt and Cassidy to get together or admit their feelings.


It drove me nuts each time they hide it or ignored their feelings. I was kept on the edge of my seat waiting for them to acknowledge their feelings. I'll admit, when they finally opened up to each other, I squealed. I can't wait to see how the series grows!


I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.
