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:

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Desiree’s free-spirited mother puts the family property in jeopardy and Desiree must work together with Violet, the half-sister she barely knows, to save it. It’s not exactly how Desiree planned to spend her summer! Hunky neighbor Rick, who is also home for the summer catches sight of Desiree and it’s not long before the two begin a hot and heavy romance. Too bad life keeps getting in the way. What do you do when you want your summer romance to be more?
Bayside Desires is the first book in the brand new series Bayside Summers and it has everything I expect in a Melissa Foster book. Bayside Desire has plenty of angst to go around, from Desiree’s complicated relationship with Violet, her feelings of abandonment by her flighty mother and her growing feelings toward Rick. There’s drama all around, but there’s also lighthearted moments and the chemistry between Desiree and Rick is sizzling.
Many of the characters in this small community are lovable and have a story to tell. Melissa gives you small glimpses into their lives and makes you eager to learn more. I think I’m gonna love this series.
Most of Melissa Foster’s books make it into audio form and I can’t wait for this series to be added to the list!
