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.

Humour, heart, & a sizzling couple who will have you burning up in this fast paced, summer romance
Bayside Desires is a gorgeous new contemporary romance with everything from humour, heart, and a sizzling couple who will have you burning up in this fast paced, seaside town, summer romance.
Rick and Desiree, who tell the book from dual POV, have such a sweet connection, both in and out of the bedroom (trust me, things definitely get a bit hot and heavy with these two), their connection clear from the very start with the two of them drawn together with a real splash. One thing I loved about the book is the relationship between Desiree and her sister, Violet; it was not only fun to watch develop but key in developing Desiree’s character further. Both main characters find themselves at a crossroads as to where their futures lie in order for them to be happy as this summer romance turns into something much more. You do have to be open to insta-lust to fully embrace Rick and Desiree as things start rather quickly but it does work really well with the plot. And for fans of Melissa Foster’s books, we get to catch up with a couple of familiar faces which is always an added bonus to add that familiar warmth.
Oh and one last thing, if you love a mischievous dog, you’re going to love Cosmos!
If you are looking for an addictive sweet but sassy love at first sight contemporary romance, definitely give this book a read - I loved it!
