About Bayside Desires:

 

 

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:

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

 

Desiree clearly stood at the end of a jetty at Indian Neck Beach, watching three brawny guys race around Cape Cod Bay on Jet Skis while she FaceTimed with her best friend, Emery Andrews. She had known Emery since first grade, and she was the only person who would understand why, after driving for more than twelve hours, Desiree was standing on that jetty, pretending to be on vacation, instead of facing the woman who had summoned her to Wellfleet.

 

“I should have come with you,” Emery insisted. “You’re at the beach, and I’m stuck here teaching yoga and Pilates to people who go home and eat entire pizzas afterward. Not that I’m only thinking of me. I’m just saying. I could be your backbone when you see your mother. You know, make sure you don’t wimp out on telling her how cruel it was to go months without any contact and then send you that email.”

 

Emery had a right to be upset. She’d been there for Desiree for more than twenty years, picking up the pieces of Desiree’s broken heart after short, awkward, visits with her mother. Lizza Vancroft had been breezing in and out of her life since Desiree was five years old. Desiree was used to hearing from her mother only once or twice a year, but her most recent email had taken the cake. She’d read the cryptic message dozens of times, as concerned as she was annoyed. I need you to come to Wellfleet and run my art gallery for the summer. It might prolong my life. She hadn’t even known Lizza was ill, much less owned a gallery and had been living in the States.

 

“I’ll be fine,” she said, though she wasn’t sure she believed it. After Desiree’s parents had divorced, Lizza had taken off to teach overseas with Desiree’s half sister, Violet, leaving Desiree to live with her father. Some small part of her was still waiting for her mother to make amends for leaving her behind. “I just need a few minutes to get my head on straight before facing her.”

 

One of the Jet Skis headed directly for another, swerving at the last second to avoid a collision. “Holy cow. Someone is going to get killed. Look at these guys.” She held up her phone to show Emery the crazy Jet Skiers. “Who does that? It’s so dangerous.”

 

“Hot Jet Skiing guys who thrive on danger. My kind of guys, and your perfect distraction.” Emery waggled her brows.

 

“I don’t need a distraction. Lizza is almost a stranger to me. It’s like I’m waiting to get bad news from someone I met a few times but don’t really know.”

 

“I know. Your mother is as flighty as a fairy, and I’m sure right now you wish you were wired like her and Violet instead of being responsible and organized to the nth degree, like your father,” Emery said. Spot-on, as always. “Then you could be the one who was living overseas working with one nonprofit or another without Internet or a care in the world, like Violet, instead of procrastinating the unleashing of a nest of demons you’ve spent years tamping down.”

 

“You’re so dramatic.” Desiree smiled, thankful for Emery’s teasing.

 

She had no idea whether Violet would be there when she arrived. Though she and Violet had grown up on opposite sides of the world, they had spent a few weeks together at the Cape each summer with their grandmother. At least they had until they were teens and one or the other had found better things to do, most years whittling those weeks down to just a few days. They’d kept in touch only sporadically during college, and before their grandmother’s funeral last winter, it had been more than three years since Desiree had seen Violet or their mother. But that didn’t mean Desiree hadn’t always wished for a relationship with her sister, despite how different they were.

 

“That’s why you love me.” Emery flashed a cheesy smile. “Seriously, though. You need to just go see Lizza and get it over with. And you should probably be glad I’m not there. Because as far as I’m concerned, her email was infuriating, unfair, and heartrending.” Emery’s eyes narrowed. “I’d like to give her a piece of my mind.”

 

“So would I,” Desiree admitted. “But I won’t.” A breeze swept off the bay, lifting the ends of her dress. She pushed it back down, catching a glimpse of one of the Jet Skiers slowing to watch her. As if she wasn’t nervous enough today?

 

“I know. You’ve got the biggest heart on the planet. We need a plan. You do best with plans.” Emery tucked her brown hair behind her ear and leaned closer to the screen, like she was sharing a secret. “Tonight, after you get your heart torn to shreds, since I’m not there to help heal your mama-wounds, please get yourself a nice bottle of wine and a big man. I promise that will help ease whatever pain she throws your way.”

 

“Don’t you mean a big bottle of wine and a nice man?” Desiree asked, as the Jet Skier who was watching her broke away from the others and sped past.

 

“Definitely not. You don’t need a nice man. I know you think you want romance and all the mushy stuff like flowers, candy, and midnight walks.” Emery flashed her don’t-even-try-to-tell-me-otherwise scowl. “But trust me. You need a man who takes control, whose kisses turn you inside out and make you forget about your crazy mother.”

 

She wrapped her arms around her middle, listening to the roar of the lone Jet Ski cutting tracks in front of her and wondering about kisses that turned a woman inside out. She had yet to experience anything like that, but Emery talked about them like she’d had enough to share. Maybe it was time to expand her horizons.

 

“Hello?” Emery said. “Think you can look at me and stop watching the hot Jet Skiers for two minutes?”

 

Desiree laughed. “Like you’d ever look at me instead of a guy? Besides, I’m only watching one, because he’s watching me. The other two are long gone.” She held up her phone again, showing her the hot guy with dark hair keeping time with her as she paced the jetty.

 

“God, you’re so lucky. Go take hot Jet Ski guy for a ride and show up late to see Lizza.” Emery waggled her brows. “For all you know, she’s not even at your grandmother’s house waiting for you.”

 

That was true. Lizza and Violet still hadn’t replied to her messages. But that didn’t change the fact that Desiree wasn’t a jump-in-the sack with a stranger kind of girl. “That’s just what I need. A reckless adrenaline junkie before seeing Lizza. No thanks.”

 

Emery turned away from the phone. “I have to go. My date is here.”

 

“You have a date? With who?”

 

“One of the reckless, adrenaline-junky Jericho brothers. I’ll let you try to figure out which one.” She blew Desiree a kiss. “Listen, babe. Take my advice. Bang the Jet Ski guy; then you’ll be nice and relaxed when you see Lizza. Call if you need me. Love you!”

 

Desiree ended the call, and the guy trailing her on the Jet Ski zoomed past. He made a sharp turn and headed back, eyes locked on her, making her heart race. Maybe letting loose for a night was just what she needed. One night of uninhibited anything would be a first. The Jet Ski turned again, taking another, faster pass, the hot guy’s eyes still trained on her. Butterflies took flight in her stomach. He was obviously interested. Maybe…

 

He turned again and headed straight toward the jetty.

 

Straight for her.

 

Oh God. How long had she been staring at him? What was I thinking?

 

She tried to act casual, looking at the boats, the sky, anywhere but at the man on the machine as she made her way along the rocks toward the beach. He fishtailed, spraying water in her direction. She shrieked and turned away as water rained down on her.

 

No, a reckless man was definitely not what she needed.

PAPERBACK

 
 
Bear and Crystal
 
This is a brand new author for us and I have to say that we enjoyed our first read by her.This was one of the most funniest books that I have read so far this year.
 
I loved the characters they were funny, engaging,smart, sexy, a super hot!This was a super cute love story loaded with humor mixed with a bit of family drama .Then throw in there  a possessive dark and sexy tattooed biker in the mix and you have a super fun relaxing read.
 
I enjoyed  all the characters but Bear was a favorite of mind this guy was super sweet,had a sense of humor,a big old heart,was possessive,hot,was patient,kind,understanding and just a great guy all around with tons of artistic talent.I love how he was always putting family first.I loved his interactions in and out of bed with Crystal .He teased her all the time and was constantly calling her pet names and some of them just were just hilarious.I loved how he pursued Crystal with such patience never giving up knowing she would be worth it once she gave into their mutual attraction.I love the chemistry he had with Crystal and also how playful he could be trying to get her to lower her shields and let him in.I loved how he worried about if she was always alright and gave her the space she needed as it warred against his protective nature to do just the opposite.I could not help and make the fall myself when it came to Bear as he would make any girl the perfect mate..
 
Crystal was outspoken,kind,sexy,talented,love able .I found her to be funny and had a sense of humor but she was also carrying around one big hefty secret that weighed on her mind.My heart went out to Crystal .I know she was trying so hard to overcome her past and how it affected her now but, every time It looked like she was moving forward she was stepping back.I felt her pain and hesitation as you know that she so wanted to move forward and find the happiness she new she would have with Bear if she could just get over her own fears.
 
Bear and Crystal made the perfect couple.I truly believe that fate stepped in and put each other in one another's path because Bear was the perfect person to help Crystal heal. All he had to do was love her with his warm and generous heart and be the kind and patient man that he was.I loved the sexual banter that went on between this couple how they had a way with words that gave me quite a few laughs throughout this entire story.
 
My favorite quotes and scenes in the book were when Bear constantly teased Harley the cat for being a cock-block way to funny had me laughing out loud more than once.
 
A recommend read that had a bit of humor,family and personal drama,secrets coming to life, one finding love and happiness and also one cutting ties to the things that bring you  pain and unhappiness.  All these things put together made this story a enticing fun read from cover to cover.I will be sure to read more books by this author and  I look forward to getting to know the other Whiskey brothers as well .
 
This goes into the keeper pile for when you are feeling and bit low and you need a pick me up. This story will have you laughing again in know time at all.

Book Review
Whisper of Love - Melissa Foster

One of the things that I find attractive is a man who single-handedly takes care of his child. A man who is willing to give up his carefree lifestyle to ensure that his child has the best of everything. Nash Morgan from Whisper of Love is the epitome of such a man. From the moment I met him, I could not help falling in love with him. Then there was his adorable baby boy Phillip, I just wanted to hug him. The bond between a parent and a child is so profound, and Melissa Foster aptly demonstrated this in her latest installment.

Nash had dedicated his life to taking care of his son as such he rarely had time for inter-personal relationships. This was further compounded by events from his past, which he has yet to come to terms with. These events induced a fear within him that led to him being overprotective of his son. His over-protectiveness led to him, keeping both he and his son in seclusion. Financial constraints would see him making a hard decision, which would lead to him admitting a stranger into his life. Making this decision resulted in him meeting the fiery and cautious Tempest Braden, which would push him beyond his boundaries in ways he never imagined.

Tempest Braeden, a music therapist is looking to take her business in a new direction. To do this she decided to move to Pleasant Hill. Being an overly cautious person, she was a bit hesitant in renting the room that Nash was subletting. However, once she let down her guard and made the choice of being room-mates with a complete stranger, she would learn that sometimes it does pay to throw caution to the wind.

The attraction that Nash and Tempest felt for each other was intense and this was clear from the day they first met, however, fear and pain from the past proved a hindrance. Thankfully, their feelings were stronger than their fears, which led to them discovering the healing power of love.

I enjoyed the story, but the parts that resonated with me was the interaction between Nash and his son. Their moments together were heartwarming and funny. The love they had for each other just rolled off the pages. I understood Nash’s protectiveness when it came to his son, although at times it may seem as if he went a bit overboard. I loved how Tempest was able to blend in with them and in the process helped them to view things in a different light.
One of the things that stand out for me with books written by this author is her portrayal of family and friendships. I love stories that demonstrate the beauty found in close-knit families and friendships that have survived varying obstacles. Ms. Foster has a knack for highlighting these themes in her stories in such a way that one cannot help but wish they were a part of something so beautiful.

Written in the third (3rd) person the story gave both Nash and Tempest’s perspectives. The writing is beautiful, the pacing steady and the descriptions vivid. There were varying ranges of emotions flowing through the story. There were moments of laughter, anguish, and sadness which when combined created a story that left me wanting more.

Verdict:
This is a great addition to the Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series. If you enjoy romance stories that are sweet, heartfelt and passionate then you will love Whisper of Love.

N.B. Although it is a part of a series, it is a stand-alone read.

 TMW_PreOrderPrice_AD3 Exclusive Excerpt: CRYSTAL FLEW THROUGH Truman and Gemma’s front door like wildfire, eating up everything in her path. Her raven mane was soaking wet, framing her beautiful, scowling face as she stormed into the living room. Her black hoodie hung open over a Rolling Stones T-shirt, and her piercing baby blues threw daggers. Her skintight black jeans had tears along her thighs and beneath her knees, revealing flashes of her tanned skin. Skin he’d like to touch and taste and have wrapped around him. She stopped a few feet from Bear and set her hand on her hip. “Give me a paintbrush, or a roller, or a goddamn gun for all I care. Just give me something and get out of my way.” They’d finished painting ten minutes ago. Bear chuckled at her vehemence. She was sexy as sin no matter what mood she was in, but this tigress before him made him want to comfort her and fuck her at once. “Hard night, sugar?” She narrowed her eyes. “Not hard enough. And I’m not your sugar. I need to work out my frustrations.” She thrust out a hand, obviously waiting for a paintbrush. He grabbed that delicate little hand and hauled her against him. His entire body flamed. Several months of playing cat and mouse was way too long. Her eyes darkened and her breathing shallowed. Bear was done messing around. This brazen beauty not only wanted him, but she needed him. She just didn’t know it yet. “What do you think you’re doing?” She spoke in a low voice and probably meant it to sound threatening, but she sounded sultry and hard to resist. He cupped her chin, brushing his thumb over her lower lip, and the air rushed from her lungs. His hand slid over her hip. She had the sleek, sexy curves of a ’61 Harley-Davidson Duo-Glide, and he couldn’t wait to rev her up and make her purr. “Giving you what you need. A wild Whiskey night is the perfect remedy for your frustrations.” “Uncle Be-ah!” Three-year-old Kennedy ran into the room wearing a Dora the Explorer nightgown and clutching the Winnie-the-Pooh stuffed toy Bear’s younger sister, Dixie, had given her. She squeezed between them. Truman had rescued his younger siblings, Kennedy and Lincoln, from a crack house after their mother overdosed. He and Gemma were raising them as their own. Crystal smirked at Bear and arched a brow. He reluctantly released her. Cock blocked by a three-year-old. “Hi, pretty girl.” Crystal gave Bear a snarky look as she crouched and hugged Kennedy. “This cuteness is all I need after a frustrating evening.” “Why are you frustrated, Auntie Crystal?” Kennedy still had a hard time pronouncing r’s, and the way she spoke turned Bear’s insides to mush. “I’m not anymore, thanks to you.” “I came to kiss you and Beth good night.” She gave Crystal a tight hug and kiss, then reached her spindly arms up to Bear and went up on her toes. He lifted her up, and she wound her arms around his neck. “Thank you for letting me help you paint.” Kennedy yawned and rested her head on his shoulder. “The house will be pretty for Mommy and Tooman’s—I mean Daddy’s—wedding.” Although Kennedy and Lincoln were Truman’s siblings, when Lincoln had begun talking, he’d called Truman Dada, and Kennedy had said she wanted to call him that, too. Sometimes she forgot and called him Tooman. Bear ran his hand down her back. It was hard to believe it had been less than a year since Truman had found them. Kennedy had gone from a rail-thin, frightened little girl to a healthy, happy member of not just Truman’s family, but Bear’s, too. “You’re the best painter around, sweetheart. Thank you for helping me.” He lifted his eyes, catching Crystal watching him with a warm—interested?—look in her eyes. He liked that a whole lot. Crystal’s eyes skittered away. “Hey, Ken? Where’s Mommy?” “She’s giving Lincoln a baf.” Crystal smiled. “Want me to take you up to bed?” “Yes,” Bear and Kennedy said at once. Crystal rolled her eyes at Bear and reached for Kennedy. Bear put an arm around Crystal’s waist, ignoring her glare. “I’m escorting two of my favorite girls upstairs. Deal with it.” He guided her toward the stairs, where they ran into Truman on his way down. Truman stood eye to eye with Bear, his dark eyes moving between the two of them. His lips curved up and he shook his head. He must have read the annoyed expression on Crystal’s face, because he reached for Kennedy. “I think I’ll intervene. Thanks, guys.” After he went upstairs, Crystal said, “You can let go of me now.” “No thanks.” He kept a hold of her as she stalked back to the living room. “Want to tell me what happened tonight?” “No. I want to paint.” She squirmed out of his grip and he tugged her back. “If you think I’ll let this go, you’re wrong. Talk to me. What’s got you so irritated?” “Jesus, Bear,” she snapped. “I’m not yours. You don’t have to protect me.” He ignored her comment because she knew damn well how things worked with the Whiskeys. More importantly, she knew him well enough to know he’d never sit idly by and let her get hurt. If someone had pissed her off, he’d straighten them out. “You’re not mine yet,” he conceded. “God, you’re so arrogant and handsy and…Ugh!” She pushed away. “I just had a rough visit with my mom, that’s all.” “What happened?” Her not wanting to go into specifics didn’t surprise him. She’d always been cagey about her parents. She grabbed the ladder and dragged it toward the far wall. He took it from her, and she glared at him again. She was the most stubborn woman he’d ever known. She was also sharp, confident, and possibly the most sensitive person he knew, though she’d never admit to it. Those were just a few of the things he found utterly entrancing about her. Her arms were crossed, and he was pretty sure if it were possible she’d have steam coming out of her ears. “Can we just paint?” “Sorry, sugar, but we’re done for the night.” “Seriously?” She looked around the room, and her stomach growled. Her lips curved up at the edges as she spread a hand over her belly. Perfect. He whipped out his phone, texting Tru and telling him he was taking Crystal out for a bite to eat. “Grab your bag. We’re going out to eat.” He draped his arm over her shoulder and headed for the front door. “I’m not hungry.” He gave her his best deadpan stare. Challenge rose in her beautiful eyes. “You don’t tell me what to do.” “All right. Your stomach’s growling. Obviously you’re hungry. Let’s go grab something to eat.” She folded her arms over her chest. “That’s telling.” “Christ, woman.” She had no idea how much he adored this side of her. They’d never been on an official date, but they’d gone to grab a bite to eat spur-of-the-moment like this plenty of times. “Are you hungry?” “I could eat.” “Great,” he said. “Let’s go.” “Oh my God. Really? Didn’t anyone ever teach you how to ask a woman if she’d like to go out to eat?” “Are you telling me to ask you out on a date?” He slid his arm around her waist again and waggled his brows. “No.” She laughed. He loved her laugh. It was brazen and loud, like her. “Damn. Thought I got lucky. Crystal Moon, would you like to grab a burger with me?” She picked up her bag from the floor. “Fine. But I need to tell Gemma. You’re so bossy.” “You totally dig bossy, and I already texted Tru and told him.” “Presumptive and bossy.”   TMW_Graphic4

Crystal was outspoken,kind,sexy,talented,love able .I found her to be funny and had a sense of humor but she was also carrying around one big hefty secret that weighed on her mind.My heart went out to Crystal .I know she was trying so hard to overcome her past and how it affected her now but, every time It looked like she was moving forward she was stepping back.I felt her pain and hesitation as you know that she so wanted to move forward and find the happiness she new she would have with Bear if she could just get over her own fears.
 
Bear and Crystal made the perfect couple.I truly believe that fate stepped in and put each other in one another's path because Bear was the perfect person to help Crystal heal. All he had to do was love her with his warm and generous heart and be the kind and patient man that he was.I loved the sexual banter that went on between this couple how they had a way with words that gave me quite a few laughs throughout this entire story.
 
My favorite quotes and scenes in the book were when Bear constantly teased Harley the cat for being a cock-block way to funny had me laughing out loud more than once.
 
A recommend read that had a bit of humor,family and personal drama,secrets coming to life, one finding love and happiness and also one cutting ties to the things that bring you  pain and unhappiness.  All these things put together made this story a enticing fun read from cover to cover.I will be sure to read more books by this author and  I look forward to getting to know the other Whiskey brothers as well .
 
This goes into the keeper pile for when you are feeling and bit low and you need a pick me up. This story will have you laughing again in know time at all.
 
 
5 star read from us !

Wild Whiskey Nights - Melissa Foster
ARC Review: Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster

Melissa Foster has a way of getting under the skin. She writes characters that can break your heart, leave you tempted, inspire you or make your skin crawl from too much exposure. Truly, Madly, Whiskey had them all. Bear, the bad boy has trouble written all over his flirtatious smile and his possessive attitude. Don't let the playful attitude fool, he's fought his share of demons and came out victorious. He doesn't suffer fools and he fights hard for the people he loves. Crystal is his fantasy girl, but behind the tough girl act lies secrets, she's hidden from many including herself. From her frustrating mother to her idiot brother, she's seen her share of hard knocks, but is determined to rise above the life she was born into. The scenery is not always pretty, yet the attraction is overpowering and the main characters are an inspiration. Within the pages of Truly, Madly, Whiskey dwells a message of power and hope.
