Book Review - Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster

Book Description 
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:

Our Book Review
I've got to admit that I fell in love with this gorgeous cover long before I could read the book, I couldn't wait to start reading the book, the first from the brand new series.

Rick and Desiree had me hooked from the start, as soon as they had their first flirty meeting, it was unexpected to them yet so well timed, as fate began to play a massive part in their lives. There were so many laugh out loud moments, including that one, throughout this story, their flirty banter and teasing was infectious.  Reading Bayside Desires had me smiling and laughing throughout.

Both were in the Cape temporarily, neither looking for romance.  Desiree had received an urgent SOS from her distant mother having her believe she needed her straight away.  Luckily she is a teacher in the holiday season, so packed her bags without hesitation, only to find that once she had arrived she had been tricked into looking after her grandmothers house and mothers business, along with her sister who she hadn't seen in a long time, while her mother scurried off on her travels.  What began as an incredibly inconvenient situation, especially awkward between the two sisters, moved to being an incredible turn of events for all.

I escaped so easily into this story, you could feel the emotion when the you needed to feel it due to the writing style of the author, you also had the fun, craziness and heat all rolled into one, with chapter 8 being my favorite! I loved Rick and Desiree's story so much.  Their loveable heat flew off the pages and slipped easily into the readers mind.  Their chemistry was undeniable, simply gorgeous, they had such a wonderful relationship that it had you begging for more when you finished.  I really enjoyed following the sisters as they re-connected and the hilarious situations they found themselves in.  I loved all the new characters and how they welcomed the two sisters into their lives with open arms. Of course we can't forget about Cosmos for his cupid moments!

A beautiful perfect ending and I cannot wait for more!
