In BAYSIDE FANTASIES...
Tegan Fine has never had a plan—life, business, or otherwise. But she’s always had goals—to laugh daily and to pay it forward as often as she is able, just like her favorite uncle always did. After inheriting her great-uncle’s amphitheater, Tegan makes a risky move to a charming small town on Cape Cod to carry on her uncle’s legacy and hopefully expand the business with her new friend, Harper. Unfortunately, those goals aren’t doing much to help her plan a business strategy for her new endeavor. With Harper counting on her and her uncle’s legacy at stake, she swears off all distractions, determined to succeed. If only she could stop bumping into a certain arrogant, witty, and excruciatingly hot businessman who tweaks her nerves and invades her every thought. Including her late-night fantasies.
Self-professed workaholic Jett Masters never slows down. He lives life with no attachments—except to his clients, to whom he gives his all. A reluctant trip to his hometown has him itching to shake the ghosts of his past and get back to spinning deals and adding to his investments. But when he comes face-to-face with a gorgeous, handsy woman who is quite possibly the snarkiest and most disorganized person he’s ever met, sparks fly, and his sharp mind stumbles. He doesn’t even know her name, but he can’t get her out of his mind.
A chance encounter turns into a wild, sexy night, and their chemistry is off the charts—even if their ideals, and their lives, are worlds apart. Neither Jett nor Tegan is looking for more. Becoming friends with benefits seems like the perfect solution. But when they are trapped together in torrential weather, they work side by side in the aftermath, and every passionate kiss deepens their connection. Secrets are shared, trust is built, and no promises dare be made. As their lives move on, lines begin to blur, hearts get hurt, and their true selves come into focus. Tegan and Jett are left wondering if they make the perfect storm, or if they’ve reached the end of their bayside fantasy.

Mr. Armani Meets Ms. Whirlwind
Tegan Fine returns to Cape Cod, but not for a temporary visit this time. She taking a chance and returning to hopefully make her late uncle proud. Tegan’s uncle left her his beloved amphitheater and house in hopes she’d find “home”. Tegan is quirky, thoughtful, a dreamer, intelligent, artistic, multitalented, and a hard worker. She and her friend Harper hope to continue her uncle’s legacy, while making the amphitheater their own. Tegan has wonderful ideas, but they’re scattered—on post-it notes! All it takes is a chance meeting with a self proclaimed workaholic to iron out a plan—if she’ll give him a chance.
Mr. Armani (aka Jett Masters), a self made millionaire, KNOWS how to run a profitable business. He purchases businesses that are floundering and makes them profitable. He’s an excellent businessman, but a lousy brother and son. Vowing not to repeat the mistakes of his father, Jett does EXACTLY that. Until he runs into Tegan at a gas station in the pouring rain. After a couple of chance meetings, with chemistry that’s off the charts, they decide to become FWB. No heartbreaks or love involved, right? It'll work, right? Until it doesn’t...
I loved Tegan and Jett. They were sooo perfectly matched! Total opposites! I loved that Jett offered Tegan advice, but didn’t take over. He allowed her to voice her opinions and ideas, then make her own decisions. He helped her “organize” her thoughts without downplaying her ideas. He was supportive and NOT domineering. I enjoyed how Tegan, ever so slightly, nudged Jett into digging deep into his past and encouraged Jett to try to make amends with his family. I loved how Tegan was able to “see” the real Jett. Jett was truly a softy and great with kids! Between the little girl’s funny names for her dad’s customers and Mr. Armani...too funny! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
I love the Bayside series, really all of them. Jett Masters was a man you took the financial world by storm. But he was estranged from his hometown, family and friends. He didn’t have a particularly bad life growing up but he had a little heartache. He had a special relationship with his father but his father started spending less time at home and eventually moved out. He did come back home but the relationship was never repaired, so Jett figured if he didn’t start relationships then he wouldn’t be hurt. So he just built a empire by paying it forward. Teagan Fine had a favorite Uncle Harvey who passed away leaving her millions of dollars, a theater company and his mansion. She was determined to take over and make him proud, by being a successful business woman. When Jett and Teg got together their was sparks everywhere. And their love story was beautiful ❤️
I was totally immersed in this story.
I loved Tegan and Jett! What starts at a gas punp during a storm, develops into one of the hottest, most loving, and most fun reading I have experienced in a long time. Melissa Foster pulled me into this story on page one, and never let me go. There are lots of things going on other than their relationship. I really loved the family dynamic going on with Jett and his family. Melissa really surprised me in that storyline near the end. At times, this story made me fan myself, times that the tears fell, and times I was laughing out loud, but through it all, I was totally immersed in the story. It is absolutely a wonderful book!
