In Bayside Desires...

As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous beachfront resort where he works with his best friends and brother, and plenty of beautiful women to keep him company. When Desiree Cleary moves in next door to take care of her mother's estate, Rick sets his sights on the sexy and oh-so sweet pre-school teacher. But Desiree's sister isn't keen on the fast-talking playboy making moves on the younger sister she's never had a chance to get to know. And she has other ideas in store - like opening Summers Inn, a bed and breakfast that could be big-time competition for Rick's resort.

Sweet and Steamy

Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster immediately pulled me in with the sweet, but oh so steamy storyline. I love how the author writes books with deep friendships, quirky characters, and realistic relationships. The overlap of characters from one book to another is an added bonus to me, I like catching up with old friends, and its another layer of loyalty and laughs. Rick and Desiree are the featured couple in this book. I loved their banter, the awkward situations, and incredible chemistry. BJ Harrison is amazing at bringing the characters to life. I could hear the differences in the characters speaking, and so enjoyed listening to him. I am so looking forward to more books in the Bayside summers series.

Amazing listening!

Audiobook Review…Oh how I love BJ Harrison’s voice. He brings characters to life, he tells their stories with emotion and love, and he makes the listener feel like they are living alongside the characters. There is so much heat between Rick and Desiree that I am sure I blushed a few times. Melissa Foster has just brought to life an alpha male who understands that his woman deserves to be loved over and over again.

Ebook Review…Just when I thought Melissa couldn’t write another series that I would love more than the last she comes out with The Bayside Summers Series. These are fun, easy going, real, and loving characters with true to life problems and relationships. There are alpha males who dote on their women, women who are flirty fun and totally committed to their males.

Rick Savage makes a splash to get Desiree’s attention before he even knows her name. From that point on their relationship takes off. There is sweet talks and dates, steamy kisses and hot sex, along with deep talks and letting each other into their lives. While Rick isn’t perfect he is perfect for Desiree. Desiree isn’t looking for a relationship but knows that when the right person walks into her life she can’t let him go.

Bayside Desires had me laughing and enjoying every page. There was some more serious parts which made the story just that more realistic. No relationship is easy without complications and Melissa Foster is amazing at keeping her characters true to themselves and their lives.

Outside of Rick and Desiree’s relationship, my favorite part was seeing the sisters come together again. Having been raised apart from each other they didn’t have a strong relationship and I enjoyed seeing them learn to get along and accept their differences.

Charming, Sweet and Steamy Love Story!

This captivating and emotional romance is a great start to the Bayside Summers series! I love the world that Foster has created that is filled with so much love, quirky and loyal friendships, and lots of steamy passion. Desiree and Rick's sweet and steamy romance has them helping each other heal from their heartbreaking and lonely pasts. Desiree wants to reconnect with her sister, Violet, while they spend the summer saving their mother's business. Rick is in Bayside using work to forget about his family, business, and the loss he's suffered. Their first meeting doesn't go well but as they spend more time together, Rick brings out her bold side, and Desiree makes him want to live again. I loved the growth of their relationship, how they helped each other heal, and grow stronger. They had so much fun together, and had great chemistry. This heartfelt, and charming story is filled with witty banter, quirky characters, awkward situations, and fiery chemistry. Narrator, B.J. Harrison brings these characters to life and makes you fall in love with this quaint seaside community. I loved this fun, sweet & sexy romance, and want more of these wonderful friends and family of Bayside!

Walking on the sunshine has never felt so good. 


Kleenex is a must. Smiles are abundant and heart tingles are a given.  Foster and Harrison team up to add a ton of heat to the summer by adding a little holiday to the heart. Rick and Desiree take love thy neighbor in a surprising direction. Home, heart and family add some dramatic twists as they make their presence known. Yet they do not take away that warm, welcoming feeling. Walking on the sunshine has never felt so good.

Great new series

Rick Savage is co-owner of the Bayside Resorts, he also has a wonderful job with his best friends in Washington DC, where he will be returning at the end of summer.
Desiree Cleary was tricked by her mother and left her very organized, structured life and ended up in Bayside for the summer running her mother's art gallery with her half sister who she barely knows.
When Rick sees Desiree he is immediately drawn to her. They fall for each other instantly, the get close fast and share their past and concerns with each other. Desiree is becoming more relaxed and Rick is learning how to have fun again. Bayside Desire is a fun, flirty, sexy read that you don't want to put down once you start. I absolutely loved the audio version of Bayside Desires. B.J. Harrison has a wonderful voice and brought Rick and Desiree's story alive.

Amazing New Series Starter

I read Bayside Desires when it was first released. I just listened to the audio book, narrated by BJ Harrison. I love listening to Melissa's audiobooks driving back and forth to work. BJ Harrison does an amazing job with his narration.
I was surprised when Melissa announced a new series. I knew I would love it but didn't know how much. I would give this book 10 starts if I could. Bayside Desires will have you laughing. This book will not disappoint, its is another must read with of course a HEA.

quick beach read

This is a sweet story although a bit slow. Preschool teacher, Desiree, is in Cape Cod for the summer after receiving a cryptic email from her mother. Thinking that her mother is gravely ill, she arrives only to learn that her carefree mother has mortgaged the family home and is taking off...it'll be up to Desiree and her half sister, Violet, to run her mother's art gallery and make payments. Desiree meets Rick Savage, part owner of the Bayside Resort, and the pair begin dating. Will there be an HEA or will risk-averse Desiree bolt? Great narration.

Good book!

I can see that this is going to be another great series by Ms. Foster and I can not wait to see the other books that come into this new series. I enjoyed watching Rick and Desiree fall in love and work through their family issues of loss, trust, abandonment, their insecurities as well as their family dynamics. This story was kind of had an insta-love feel but it worked without being cliché. The characters were well written with some amazing chemistry between them and the plot flowed well and did not feel rushed. The narration from Mr. Harrison continues to be performed well drawing the listener in to the story and making it an enjoyable book to listen to. I have yet to be disappointed by one of Ms. Foster's books and this one kept me interested from page one and fit well into a spin off of the Seaside series. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and would recommend it to others.

Funny and Passionate!

Melissa has written one of the funniest stories yet! B. J. Harrison narration of it is fantastic! I don't know how he got through it without having to stop and laugh!
Rick Savage went to Cape Cod from his job in Washington, DC to spend the summer. He saw Desiree Cleary and knew he had to get to know her. She was a preschool teacher from Virginia that had been tricked by her mother to come run her art gallery. She and her sister, Violet discovered a room in the gallery filled with sex toys. They both had to much to drink and started joking around with them. Rick stood in the doorway watching them carry on with the foolishness and they didn't know he was there. I have to tell you, I laughed until I cried with that scene. It will stick with me forever! hahaha! Rick killed her brain cells, one kiss at a time!!
