Enzo's Embrace (Tide to You Book 1) by Jaclyn Quinn

Enzo's Embrace begins a Shore Thing spin off that can be read as standalone - featuring a man who needs to make a change for his sanity and the adorable suit designer who catches his eye...

From the blurb:

Enzo Russo

I never thought after spending a week in Coral Pointe with my cousin, helping at his friends’ wedding, that I’d be back in this small town. Life in Sacramento is already lonely, but when my mom finds out my secret and uses it to hurt me in the worst way, all I want is to be where acceptance and love are as vast and dependable as the horizon. The place where the most beautiful hazel eyes I’ve ever seen are only a town away. Evian, the gorgeous, funny, suit designer from Barrett’s Port, has unexpectedly weaved his way into my life. The question is, can he mend this gaping wound in my heart, or will one pull on the wrong thread unravel my life completely?

Evian Skye

Young and gullible. That’s what I’d convinced myself I was after finding out what my much older ex-boyfriend was really doing behind my back. It took years for me to stop blaming the hearts in my eyes for obstructing my ability to see the snake he really is. Only a cold-hearted person would do that to me, knowing the heartbreak I was already facing. So when Enzo, a gorgeous out-of-towner, stops in my shop for a suit, I push aside any attraction for him, as I’d done with every man over the last few years. There’s no harm in being his friend, though, right? The problem is, there’s a sadness in his brown eyes I just can’t seem to forget. I’m not ready to level up our friendship to something as dangerous as love. So why can’t I stop dreaming about Enzo’s embrace?

We're going back to Coral Pointe in this Shore Thing spinoff!

Heather's Review:

This book is an adorable opposites attract, long distance texting relationship that brings together Evian, who is adorable and sweet and just so friendly.   Enzo is in such a difficult place, dealing with his mother, trying to be himself, wanting more...

It's a slow burn with a bit of angst, but it's worth the slog to see these two find a really happy place!  I love the supportive Coral Pointe family and how different it is from what Enzo has endured in Sacramento.

I can't wait to see what happens next in the series.
