[Review Tour] Bayside Desires (Bayside Summers #1) by Melissa Foster


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.

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:

I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.


I honestly don’t think there has been a book by Melissa that I have read that I didn’t love.

Bayside Desires is book one in the Bayside Summers spin-off series from Seaside Summers and I already cant to read more in the Bayside series!

Rick Savage is Mira’s brother who we met in Seaside Whispers, and he is the Cape working on a renovation project with his brother Drake and best friend Dean – Desiree is in the Cape under the pretence that her mother is ill or worse only to discover it was all a ruse to get her and her estranged sister Violet together for the summer whilst her mother goes off to “relax” – now I have to admit for the first time I did not like a character in Melissa;s book – Desiree’s mother! BUT…… that did change once I saw her reasoning but I mean come on who would lure their daughter making out they were dying and turn around and say they needed a holiday!

Desiree is such a sweet innocent young woman who is far different form her feisty outgoing free-spirited sister Violet, they didn’t spend much time together growing up, so there are bridged to be built between them over the summer and being thrust together in this situation by their mother is less than idea but they actually discover that they really get along great despite their differences.

When Rick first meets Desiree there is no denying the instant attraction between them, but both of them know that they are only in the Cape for the summer, so they make it a fling to remember. I really loved how Rick brought out the naughty side to Desiree and loved watching her grow from this innocent school teacher to vixen. I also loved how the both overcame scars from the past with the help of each other as if the fates brought them together for that very purpose – her mother was right after 😉

This is a great start to series with sizzling hot romance, great characters and that feel good summer vibe.
