Bayside Desires

Synopsis
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. "​With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner​ "Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely​ 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: Coming Soon... Bayside Passions Bayside Heat Bayside Escape Bayside Summers is part of the Love in Bloom romance collection by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Really liked this book, starting the series. The characters are fun. While they are for the most part single, they are not college age or barely out of college. A nice change from too many books out there.

Desiree, kindergarten teacher, came to her childhood summer home at a desperate email from her mother. While she worked up the stamina to face her estranged parent, she watched three hot men racing about the bay on jet skis. One in particular who seemed just as interested in her sped forward to stop nearby drenching her in the process. The inauspicious meeting was the start of a very interesting and heated summer. (having nothing to do with the weather)

Rick couldn't take his eyes off of the woman. Instead of the usual guy who could get women to not only look at him but had no problem with pick up lines and pick-ups when interested, this woman made him fumble badly. In this case, just enough to capture her attention--eventually. He was working on a project with his brother and friend before returning to his successful business that no longer gave him the satisfaction it once had. 

Not only did her mother send for her, but for her step sister who was just as absent from Desiree's life as her mother. The two women are anything but stable responsible people that Desiree has become. The two are a little on the kookie side and good for her. Her staid life is about to become unwound. The women, their summer "jobs", and the man who made such an impression are about to introduce her into a new world. She is about to have her conceptions about her family spun in a dizzy circle and gain some new friends.

Is this only going to be a summer romance? Can she go back to her old life after all the changes she makes? Will her family relationships go back to their former status?

This is a fun romance with plenty of steam. The characters introduced should make for a great series I can't wait to read.
