Melissa Foster creates the perfect summer read with this first in her new contemporary series.
Desiree Cleary is such an awesome heroine. Her personality is such a wonderful mixture of sweet and sexy as well as straight-laced and carefree. Her boldness and mixture of shyness just made me want everything to work out for her.
Rick is the type of Alpha male I've always dreamed of. He’s successful, sexy, and confident but not arrogant. He's genuine and sincere and watching his reactions to Desiree are a definite treat. I'm having a hard time not divulging all the wonderful scenes and details in the books, but I also don't want to spoil the enjoyment you get from reading this story. So I'm simply going to say that the characters practically walk off the page. They made me laugh, even snort a time or two and I won't deny I also reared up a little. Reading this story made me feel like I was on summer vacation and the good feeling has lasted days after I read the final page.
I believe this is my first book by this author, but I know it definitely won't be my last. Do yourself a favor and pick this up, whether you read it lounging by the lake or pool or curled up by the fireplace you're going to love it.
The Story: Desiree Cleary rushes to Bayside to save her mother. But her summer doesn't quite go as planned. She's now spending it with a half-sister who she doesn't really know and fighting off the unbelievable attraction she has for her next door neighbor.
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.
