Seasmoke Friends (Seasmoke Friends) by Kelly Moran

From bestselling & award-winning author Kelly Moran comes two heartwarming stories of love, friendship, and the ties that bind. Featuring both Seasmoke Friends books Summer's Road and Winter's Path in one set.

Summer's Road
After her father's death, Summer Quinn is alone in the world. With no family to fill the void, she finds comfort among friends. But her boyfriend wants to take their relationship to the next level, and suddenly there's an unexpected attraction building between her and her best friend, Ian Memmer--a man who's never settled for one woman. And now her estranged mother has reappeared. As secrets from her family's past and Ian's true feelings emerge, she's faced with choices she's not sure she can make. Happiness hinges on forgiveness and opening herself to love, even if it's not where she expected to find it.

Winter's Path
Jenny Winter's life hasn't been all sunshine and roses. As a young girl, she witnessed her mother die of an overdose and now the grandfather who raised her barely recognizes her. Forced to watch his memory slowly fade, she's at an impasse on what to do with his tavern and her life. Her only escape is her music and her best friend, Matt Holcomb. He's always been her support system, but she's also harbored a crush on him for years. And he's never shown signs he reciprocates those feelings. Then a moment changes everything, and she starts to wonder if his carefully constructed control isn't a ruse to hide his own attraction. Yet something happened to him once that won't allow him to engage, and if she wants her ever-after, she just might have to take fate into her own hands.

My review:

Summer's Road is an incredible story. At times sweet and shy and others gut-wrenching and painful. I appreciated the way that we got the background information necessary to understand why Summer is the way she is. The characters are so well written you feel as if you’ve known them their entire lives. Ms. Moran takes no shortcuts and you are with Summer, Ian & Matt for the entire process. Break out the tissues and prepare to laugh and cry I know I did. 

Winter's Path is Matt and Jenny’s story. Just as Ian was destined for Summer (Summer’s Road) Matt was destined for Jenny. This is a sweet, sometimes sad and often sexy friends to lovers tale as told by the incredible Kelly Moran. I really liked Jenny and couldn’t wait for Matt to get his head out of his butt.
