Review: The Seacrest – Aaron Paul Lazar
Finn McGraw has done his best to live a good life. He’s successful, in his own way, and is able to provide for his family. His wife means everything to him, and he’ll do everything possible to make sure she’s content. Though, he’d love nothing more than to expand their family, he knows he needs to be patient. Cora isn’t quite ready, and he willing to give her the time she needs.
His perfect world is soon shattered when he receives the news that Cora and his brother, Jax, were involved in a horrific car accident. The fact that his life has changed in more ways than one in so short a time isn’t lost on him. Deep inside, he knows he shouldn’t dwell on the past. Unfortunately, he can’t rid himself of the questions tumbling through his mind as he tries to make sense of things.
Forced to confront the circumstances that now surround him, Finn realizes that there’s a lot he never knew. The secrets involving Cora and Jax are mind-boggling. So much so, that he continuously struggles to understand everything. How could things have changed so quickly for him? Is there a way for him to come out on top once everything is said and done?
To his surprise, he finds himself leaning on the beautiful Libby for support. She’s always been his saving grace, even if he won’t admit it. Granted, he’s never forgotten what she means to him. Part of him wonders if she remembers their past. Another can’t help but to think that it’s best for him to let things go. Sadly, that’s easier said than done. Most especially, when she’s standing there by his side in hopes of helping him move on.
Determined to get to the bottom of things, Finn dives head-first into the sea of uncertainty he now finds himself in. He needs answers, and knows exactly where to find them. The question is, is he ready to open up a new can of worms in order to set the record straight? Unwilling to let his grief consume him, he does the only thing he can – survive amidst the chaos that he now calls life.
A bittersweet love story, The Seacrest is one of those books that will have you crying by the very end. Trust me, keep a box of tissues ready. This book is that emotional! Aaron has done a beautiful job of telling the story via past flashbacks and present storytelling. We get to see just how much the characters have grown along the way, and how they get to where they are now. This is a book that will capture your heart, and never let it go.

They say it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
Finn McGraw disagrees.
He was just seventeen when he had a torrid summer affair with the girl who stole his heart—and then inexplicably turned on him. Finn may have moved on with his life, but he’s never forgotten her.
Now, ten years later, he’s got more than his lost love to worry about. A horrific accident turns his life upside down, resurrecting the ghosts of his long-dead family and taking the lives of the few people he has left.
Finn always believed his estranged brother was responsible for the fire that killed their family—but an unexpected inheritance with a mystery attached throws everything he knows into doubt.
And on top of that, the beguiling daughter of his wealthy employer has secrets of her own. But the closer he gets, the harder she pushes him away.
The Seacrest is a story of intrigue and betrayal, of secrets and second chances—and above all, of a love that never dies.
