Bayside Passions Melissa Foster is the second book in the Bayside Summer series. 

Featured in this installment are Emery Andrews and Dean Masters whom I was introduced to in the previous installment. It was at this point I recognised the possibility of them becoming a couple, and so I was eager for them to get their own story.  Ms. Foster did not disappoint.

Like all of Melissa’s books Bayside Passions focused on romance, friendship and family.  The story highlighted the challenges one faces being part of a dysfunctional family and having to contend with a controlling patriarch.  Besides the romance, which I thought was well developed; there was humour and many smoldering moments. The humour, which was spot on, had me smiling at every page turn.

One thing with Melissa’s romance is they are free of drama and there is little or no conflict.  Bayside Passions was no different. It was a sweet friends to lover’s romance, which was free of drama and conflict.

It is always a pleasure interacting with the characters in Melissa’s stories.  Dean and Emery share a special bond of friendship, which slowly developed into a romance filled with heat and topped off with a hint of sweetness. They are the opposite of each other. Dean is methodical and a thinker.  Emery on the other hand is adventurous and impulsive. In spite of their differences, they worked well together making them a perfect couple.  Their romance was not without its challenges. Challenges, which were self-imposed and required soma amount of convincing to prove that their love was worth risking their friendship.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Overall, this was fun and sexy friends to lovers romance, and one I would recommend to fans of the trope. 

 




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 PASSIONS...
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.

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.
