Bayside Passions by Melissa Foster Book Tour with Review & Giveaway!!



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.


When Emery Andrews’s best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens a an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who’s as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives, and their secrets, over video chats and phone calls, Dean’s ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he’ll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a naked man in her kitchen the first morning she’s there, Dean doesn’t hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now Emery will see what’s right before her eyes–although that guy she’s got a date with might be a problem.

Well, Melissa Foster has made me fall in love yet again! Bayside Passions is definitely the perfect title for this book. The passion that simmers between Emery and Dean kept me turning the pages until I was unfortunately at the end of the book! I didn’t want to say good-bye to them.

Emery blew into Dean’s life last Christmas, and the two became fast friends texting and talking when she returned home. Emery doesn’t know it, but Dean feels a lot more than friendship for her. She has sworn off dating friends, and Dean is afraid he may always be relegated to that role. One of the things I love about him is he doesn’t give up when faced with a challenge, and when he decides he is going to show Emery how good they could be together, she better watch out! These two have got chemistry!!!! As determined as Dean is, they will face some obstacles before they can find their HEA.

Dean is absolute perfection. He is sexy, confident, and goes after what he wants. He is strong, but underneath that tough exterior lies a heart of gold. He takes care in everything he does. He owns his own landscaping business and works in a garden with the elderly residents of an assisted living facility. What is there not to love about him? Too bad his father has a hard time seeing that constantly pushing him to be a doctor, not being proud of who he is as a human being. He brings a calmness and stability to Emery.

Emery is a free spirit. She is spontaneous, and full of light. When she enters a room, she has an aura that changes everyone and everything around her. Foster makes her personality leap from the pages of the book. She brings that light and life to Dean’s life. On the flip side, she is also afraid of commitment. Her parents separated when she was young, and she thinks something inside of her is broken. Thankfully, Dean is there to show her she isn’t broken, and he is the one to make her feel whole again. These two are perfectly suited to one another.

As with the other books I have read by Melissa Foster, there are always other themes running through her books…family and friendship. This one is no different. Bayside Passions is also about forgiveness and second chances. She writes so beautifully, that I find myself right there in the story with her characters and on the wonderful Cape. As always, I’m looking forward to returning!

Bayside Desires (Bayside Summers #1)

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.
