"My dearest grand-daughter, Listen to your heart, believe in a brighter tomorrow, and always, always leave room for dessert." 

Noelle Olsen has never been impulsive, but when she inherits the old family bed and breakfast, she surprises everyone by quitting her corporate job and starting over in Beachwood Bay: the sleepy coastal town that’s home to old memories, new friends — and the one man she never saw coming.

Ash Callahan isn’t looking for love. He’s built his real-estate empire out of discipline, control, and cool logic — so why does one kiss from a carefree stranger send his world tilting off its axis?

Their connection is undeniable; the chemistry, impossible to ignore. But just as Noelle considers opening her heart again, the pair find themselves facing off over the town’s future — and their own. With so much as stake, will they find a way to bridge the divide, and build a love that’s unforgettable?


We all have the books that leave us yearning and with a heart so full of love. Unforgettable; the final Beachwood Bay series novel left me in awe and full of all sorts of emotions. I remember first reading Unbroken (Beachwood Bay #1) way back in 2013, (which feels like forever ago I might add) and thinking this is a book I will treasure forever and since then every single book in the series has held my heart. Unforgettable is Ash and Noelle’s story, told in a dual perspective full-length novel that incorporates everything I love about Melody Grace’s writing  and the passion of romance her scripture of voice brings forward.

It all begins with a night of forgetting the world and finding passion in a strangers arms with lust and sensual depths unbeknown that will lead to recoil and rumblings of heart. A night that was meant to be once off leads to more when tragedy burrows it’s hole and questions of life play hard on Noelle leading her to race to a different pace and to uphold grandmothers B&B in Beachwood Bay. Unexpectedly a chance encounter colliding worlds with Ash again wasn’t in the plan; as the corporate world swallows Ash whole and the night with Noelle plays on his mind the two meeting in Beachwood Bay will either end in disaster or will hold a carved mark etched in their hearts of the one night that changed everything.

As I close the chapter on the Beachwood Bay series that Melody Grace has put so much heart, blood, tears and emotion into; it isn’t without the epilogue that was basically a tear-fest of me crying the whole time. I loved everything about the concluding chapter of the Beachwood Bay series with heart that hits a chord and being able to relate to, to the sensual passion of a connection and bond of all these characters I will forever remember. For the fans of the Beachwood Bay series and Melody Grace Unforgettable doesn’t disappoint and will leave you with all the feelings; I can attest to this, as the characters are still very much with my thoughts whilst writing this review and it is a testament to great writing and brilliance woven in the character dynamics that Melody has created. I can’t wait to see what is next from Melody Grace and will continue to support her writing career in future projects.

Unforgettable Teaser 1


“Watch out!”

The packed crowd in Jimmy’s bar suddenly shifts, and I go slamming into someone.

“Sorry!” I put my hands out to keep from falling, and a pair of strong arms grip me tightly, keeping me on my feet. “I didn’t see you—”

I look up, and the words fade on my lips. The room disappears—all the noise and jostling crowd blurring into background static.

It’s him.

Ash. The man from the masquerade party. The one who led me on a wild night of adventure—and never called me the next morning. He should be five hundred miles away, but he’s here, in the middle of the crowded bar in Beachwood Bay, looking at me like I’m a ghost.

I know how he feels. It’s impossible, it has to be. But I can feel his hands, gripping me tightly; feel the warm, solid muscle of his body against mine.

I know those hands. I’ve explored that body. There would be no mistaking them, even if I wasn’t gazing into his piercing dark eyes, the ones branded on my memory.

Oh my God.

The moment stretches, electric. Then someone slams into me again, and Ash yanks me back. Suddenly, the world rushes in again.

“What are you…?” I whisper, still not able to believe it. “I mean…”

I fight to collect myself, but before I can form a coherent sentence, Ash grabs my hand and pulls me across the room. He’s moving so fast, I can barely keep up: I hurry after him, through the crowd and down a back hallway.

“Where are we going?” I gulp, my heart racing. “Slow down. Ash!”

He ignores me, pulling me after him, up a flight of stairs, and through another door. We emerge on the rooftop, a flat expanse decorated with string lights and a view of the whole bay. I barely have time to catch my breath before Ash brings his hands to my face, pushes me back against the wall and kisses me so hard I forget my own name.


Just like before, the chemical reaction is instant: a flare of heat surging through me, so bright it blots the world, like staring straight into the sun. I part my lips, greedy for the taste of him, loving the sensual caress of his tongue as he slides it deep into my mouth.

Ash groans against me, and I arch up, wrapping my arms around his neck to pull him closer. He’s gripping me so tightly, my body is crushed against him; my back hard against the wall. He threads the fingers on one hand roughly through my hair, pinning me in place as his mouth continues its devastating exploration.

There’s no way to explain it, how my body responds to his touch. Touch-paper to a flame; igniting like never before. I run my hands through his dark hair, slide across the muscular contours of his back, gripping at his shirt and kissing him with everything I have. I can’t think, I can’t breathe, I just fall deeper into the kiss, our passion obliterating every last thought from my mind.

It’s a rush of glitter in my veins, of soaring fever and a low, aching need. Desire consumes me, hot and demanding, until suddenly, Ash wrenches free.

I gasp for air, sinking back against the wall. My legs go weak as his eyes rake over me, blazing darkly with lust. “What are you doing here?” he whispers harshly.

“I…” I can’t find the words, I’m still reeling with shock—and desire.

A shadow crosses his face. He shakes his head, looking dazed. “No,” he mutters, cutting me off. “This isn’t happening.”

Before I can say another word, he turns and strides away from me, slamming the exit door with a crash. I’m left alone on the rooftop with nothing but the sound of my own beating heart.
