Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster & GIVEAWAY


Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

BAYSIDE SUMMERS is a series of standalone steamy romance novels featuring alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, deeply emotional, always passionate, and easy to relate to.

In Bayside Desires...
As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.

Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.

Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:

My Thoughts…

Just when I thought Melissa couldn’t write another series that I would love more than the last she comes out with The Bayside Summers Series.    These are fun, easy going, real, and loving characters with true to life problems and relationships.    There are alpha males who dote on their women, women who are flirty fun and totally committed to their males.  

Rick Savage makes a splash to get Desiree’s attention before he even knows her name.   From that point on their relationship takes off.    There is sweet talks and dates, steamy kisses and hot sex, along with deep talks and letting each other into their lives.     While Rick isn’t perfect he is perfect for Desiree.    Desiree isn’t looking for a relationship but knows that when the right person walks into her life she can’t let him go.

Bayside Desires had me laughing and enjoying every page.   There was some more serious parts which made the story just that more realistic.   No relationship is easy without complications and Melissa Foster is amazing at keeping her characters true to themselves and their lives.      

Outside of Rick and Desiree’s relationship, my favorite part was seeing the sisters come together again.     Having been raised apart from each other they didn’t have a strong relationship and I enjoyed seeing them learn to get along and accept their differences.   

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