Rick Savage proves that you can have it all, yet still feel empty inside. Between crossover characters, light hearted banter, meaty storytelling and new characters, I get to know and love, Ms. Foster is on the right tract with the Bayside Summers series. Bayside Desires is the first book in the series and it marks the beginning of something special. Rick and Desiree have had their fair share of painful moments. Abandonment issues, disappointment and loneliness have left Desiree with a heavy hear ...more

BAYSIDE DESIRES is the first book in Melissa Foster’s brand new Bayside Summers series. This is a spin-off from her other small-town Contemporary series called Seaside Summers.

I knew I was going to enjoy this book because I’m a big fan of Foster’s small-town Contemporaries and the Seaside Summers series is my favorite series that she writes. I love the combination of humor, heart and heat in the series and BAYSIDE DESIRES consists of all that as well.

Just like the Seaside Summers series, this

Wow, just wow, why I don't read books by this author more is beyond me, lol. Making a note now to read her stuff often! The storyline was fantastic and it flowed seamlessly and flawless!

Rick and Desiree, holy WOWZA, this man and this naughty preschool teacher were full of surprises. I loved that the story was straightforward, sweet and full of complete sexiness, the sex scenes and dirty talk were spot on perfect!!!!!

I loved all of the secondary characters and cannot wait to read

I don't know if I've already announced I have a favorite Melissa Foster book but this is it right now. THIS ONE IS IT!

I think what I loved best about the story is the romance/love progression. The story starts very sweet and it just flows into flirty and turns sexy as you read. It was a perfect unfolding for these two characters. Both come with a little crack in their hearts from their past, so any kind of insta would have been wrong. And it isn't that at all. It felt good to read their journey.

Bayside Desires is the first book in the Bayside Summer series by Melissa Foster and it's also one of the many books in the Love in Bloom series. It's a spinoff from Seaside Summers, as an introduction to Mira's siblings from book eight, Seaside Whispers.

Rick Savage was the gorgeous, sexy, confident, protective alpha that co-owned the local resort in Wellfleet, a small beach town, with his brother and best friend. He ran a multi-million dollar business back in DC but was overseeing a renovation

Bayside Desires is the first book in the new series, Bayside Summers by Melissa Foster. I went into this story expecting a fun, flirty, sexy and emotional read and Melissa did not disappoint. This book makes for the perfect summer read.

What a total swoon-fest!!! This book totally made my heart melt and left me with a huge smile on my face!!

Bayside Desires is the first in Melissa Foster’s Bayside Summers series. It was a wonderful, easy and sexy beach read. If you want to get lost in a happy world, then this is the book to read. It was a fairly quick, lighthearted read, with very little (almost no drama) filled read. Even though this book isn’t

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 ...more

They're fantastic books and if you've not read one of them yet, I would highly suggest you grab one and try it! You WILL be hooked, because she is a phenominal author. One of the main things I like about her books is the fact that while they are a part of a series, they can all be read as stand alones as well!

I gave this book 4.5 stars!!!

I have read several of Ms. Foster's books and with each one I keep falling in love with her characters. She make you feel like you are one with them and sets your mind up where you feel everything that her characters feel. She has became one of my GO TO Authors for when I'm in a book funk, I know that she will always bring me out of it.

Fantastic start to the new Bayside Series by Melissa Foster. Rick and Desiree captured my heart from the very beginning and as always with these series, kept me interested till the very end. Rick is strong and loving and he knows what he wants, if only he could let go of the hurt from losing his father many years ago. Desiree has been hurt by the one person in the world who should have always protected her, her mother. When they both find themselves back on the Cape, their hearts begin to heal a ...more

Another great spin off from Melissa Foster. Rick is Mira's big brother. He is working on the Cape starting up a resort with his brother Drake and friend Dean. Desiree is visiting the Cape after getting a cryptic email from her long lost mother. They meet on the very first night Desiree is in town, when Rick splashes her with his jet ski. Take about not getting off on the right foot. Rick gives Desiree his number, but she is a straight laced kind of girl so fate will have to step in before she wi ...more

Melissa Forster does it again! I couldn't put this book down. Rick and Desiree's story is so much fun to read. It's a story about family relationships and love which Melissa wrote so beautifully. I can't wait to read Dean and Emery's story.

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

You know the feeling you have when a book makes you squeal outlaid because you love it so much.... that was this book for me! I loved Bayside Desires, but I love Melissa Foster, so there is not much surprise! This is the first book in a new series, and I could not be happier about getting another series from her!

Desiree's mom is kinda a fruit basket and she has called her home to help out, little does she know what she is getting into by coming home. She has always been the sensible o

I've got to admit that I fell in love with this gorgeous cover long before I could read the book, I couldn't wait to start reading the book, the first from the brand new series.

Rick and Desiree had me hooked from the start, as soon as they had their first flirty meeting, it was unexpected to them yet so well timed, as fate began to play a massive part in their lives. There were so many laugh out loud moments, including that one, throughout this story, their flirty banter and teasing was infectio

What do you get when you cross a kindergarten teacher with a resort owner slash contractor? A love so powerful that sparks jump off the pages of their book. Melissa Foster does it once again with BaySide Desires, the story of Desiree and Rick.

Rick Savage is a contractor architect and resort owner who is working on a new resort with his brother and business partner when he spots Desiree standing on the beach. Of course, he wasn’t working at the time he spotted her. He was flying past her on a jet

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.

Desiree Cleary gets a scary email from her long lost mother that says she needs to come to the Cape to prolong her mother's life. Well that is a stretch but then again it is her mother after all, she goes where the wind tells her to go. Just like she did when Desiree was younger. Now that she is on the Cape, her half-sister Violet is there and Mom is leaving, to find herself again but will return by the

I get giddy anytime a new Melissa Foster book hits my eReader. She has a way of connecting you to her characters that you just can't put the book down after diving in.

Rick Savage is home for the summer to help his brother and best friend with a resort that they co-own with updates. He loves the time spent with his family and friends but his life is back in Washington, DC now and the daily beaches of the Cape are a distant memory. But when he mets Desiree Cleary, there's a shift that he's finding

Rick and Desiree were interesting as a couple and as people. I actually enjoyed getting to know them, although there were times where I thought the relationship moved oddly fast, for the most part I believed their chemistry, connection and attraction.

I liked that they had the commonality of both having lives somewhere else with ties to the community and a reason to be there as well as a reason to leave at the end of the summer. I think, at lea

Over the years of reading Melissa's books, I have grown to love her style. I am completely unfamiliar with the Cape area yet I feel that I have visited many times and know it like the back of my hand! Her writing opens up the imagination and lets you sink into the every day life with the characters. This time around, we get to experience Desiree and Rick. Both of our characters face their own difficulties regarding family, careers, personal/romantic lives yet somehow, they are drawn to each othe ...more

The first book in the Bayside Summers Series is flirty, fun, sexy, and romantic. Melissa Foster gives a sassy heroine and a swoon-worthy hero brought together by fate in Bayside Desires.
There truly is only a bit of angst in this read and that's just what I needed to get out of my book funk. Desiree is a great female lead to Rick's hard, but fun-loving hero exterior. I really think this new series of stand-alones is going to be another must-read set of books. Melissa Foster has another winner on

Ms Foster is without a doubt a Mistress of the Seaside romance. The mixture of steamy passion and adorable romance ensure that the reader cannot help but smile at all the interconnected stories that she has created. Bayside Summers will clearly join the other series as guaranteed happiness reads.

Bayside Desires is the first book in the Bayside Summers series. Great start to what I can only imagine will be a great series. This was the first book that I have read of Mrs. Fosters but hopefully it will not be my last.
Rick and Desiree have both had heartrending and painful moments. Abandonment issues from her Mother and lots of disappointment has Desiree leery of forming relationships and trusting others. Rick has had his own tragedies to deal with in his past. Join in on the light-hearte
