I just want to make it clear that this is not my first read & Melissa Foster happens to be a TOP 5 of my author's! Therefore I have read almost every single book of her's and also have read this entire series.

I LOVED Andre so much in this. Actually I loved both characters because they were unique and strong in their own. I loved Andrew because after having gone through his hardship, he is standing strong and willing to put himself out there again. The reason I loved Violet a.k.a Daisy is bec

I read half the book before I gave up. I don't even know how I managed to get there. I don't know if I am on a book funk or something because everyone else is loving the book, but I couldn't bring myself to finish it and I know what didn't help with the whole situation. The only bright spot was the mention of Brindle whose book is one of my most anticipated reads of 2019. I assume Andre was one of the men she mentioned spending a lot of time with.

I will admit that Violet wasn’t my favorite character in the Bayside series. Violet exemplifies the word badass. Swearing, gruff behavior, black clothes and a motor cycle—yes-that’s Violet. Her behavior bothered me but, Violet loved her sister Desiree and would do anything for her. I knew underneath the tough talk and black leather there was a story waiting to be told.

Bayside Escape is one of my favorites Melissa Foster novels. It’s so much more than I expected. There are a lot of family and tr

This is the forth book in the series and should be read in order so you don't miss anything with this group of friends. This is Violet and Andre's story and I think it might be my favorite so far.
Violet is Desiree's sister and she is kinda standoffish, she takes off and doesn't tell anyone where she is going. Keeps things to herself, doesn't dress like a girlie girl and rides a bike. So when th

I have been waiting to get to know the real Violet and what was under all the badass and sass since she was introduced. I always new there was more to her and I was not disappointed.

Violet hides the real story of what she has been through and the heartbreak under a tough exterior that is hard to crack but underneath there is a beautiful soul who loves with her whole heart, a heart she will protect at all cost. However at her sisters wedding a blast from her past has her in turmoil, Andre was the

I have been dying to read Violet’s story from the moment we first met her in Bayside Desires. She is one feisty, strong woman who keeps her cards close to her chest, and I always knew there was a side to her she wasn’t showing her family and friends.

Violet Vancroft is not only feisty but she also has a heart of gold hidden underneath that tough exterior that she hides behind. We also knew that she had loved and lost but she never really spoke about it too Desiree since moving to Bayside. But Vio

I really enjoyed this book! It was a nice second chance romance story and I really loved seeing the connection Between Andre and Violet blossom. This was the first book I’ve read in this series and although they are able to be read as a stand-alone, I really want to read the others so I can get to know and understand all of the characters on a deeper level. This was a really enjoyable read, I loved it!

‘Bayside Escape’ is the fourth book of the Bayside Summer series, and the long-anticipated story of ‘Violet Vancroft’.

For those of you who are die-hard fans of the Bayside Series like myself, I am sure you were all eagerly awaiting the book that would unravel her as a character just like I was.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review, and I can honestly say that I adore Violet and Andre’s romance. This book had me laughing at Violet’s snarky sass one moment but then crying at her
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Bayside Escape by Melissa Foster is book Four in the Bayside Summer Series. This is the story of Violet Vancroft and Andre Shaw. This can be a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Violet and Andre were once hot and heavy into each other until Violet slipped away. Violet didn't really know what she wanted it thought until she made contact again with her sister. Andre feeling the loss of her tried to move on with his live and his career. Then an unexpected meeting between the two set sparks flyin

Bayside Escape (Bayside Summers Book 4) by Melissa Foster  
The appeal of Violet is that she holds nothing back. Her boundless energy, fiesty spirit and smart mouth are how she copes with a broken heart. Why is it that the people that exude such strength on the outside tend to be covering up the bruises they carry on the inside? Andre and Violet are a wound that never had the chance to heal. Their relationship is messy, endless and in need of more than a bandage. The wounds cut deep. The pain ha

WOW! This book was a fantastic has all the feels.
I have always thought that there was more to Violet, and that behind the brashness and cussing was a kindhearted person who just wanted to be loved. This story is captivating. Violet and her man will leave you swooning. Plus we have all the usual gang at Bayside, the 'sexy' breakfasts, and Lizzy makes a reappearance. A right romping good read. Loved it!

Oh. My. Lanta. This read was ah-mazing!

Violet – hard headed, stubborn, tough as nails, mouthy, dark Violet. Who knew there was an entirely different side to her!?

I feel like my personality is quite similar to Vi’s dark personality so I loved being able to read her story.

I don’t remember reading anything about Andre or Vi’s love or Vi’s anything previously (I have read a lot of Melissa books so who knows!) but it was great to read about that romance and see Andre re-appear.

I love romance books and Melissa Foster is one of my absolute favorite writers. I have been following the Bayside characters for a while now and love each and every one of them. I couldn’t wait until Violet’s story came out and now that it is I loved reading it and seeing her get tamed, well as tame as she can be.

Violet and Andre story was amazing and so sweet yet not too sweet because if you’ve met Vi in the other stories you know she’s not into that mushy love stuff. Vi is a hard one to crack

Oh my word, this book is so hot! I've been waiting for more of Violet's story for some time, and the fact that she is reconnecting with Andre, her one love, made this an amazing story!

Violet and Andre came together with a huge passion which quickly developed into love, but their lives were so different that Violet was determined that they couldn't make it work. So she ran. In the middle of the night. No forwarding address, nowhere for Andre to even start to look for her. And she moved on with he

Bayside Escapes is full of amusement, romance, and friendships. All the characters in this story help bring this book to life and make it a fun read.

Violet seems like a strong woman who is not afraid to say what is on her mind. Violet's lack of filter is my favorite thing about her. Violet is far more than she seems. She has a huge heart, but she keeps it guarded.

Andre is determined, a leader, and caring. Falling in love before made him rethink his life and what he wanted to do with his career.

Violet is a rough tough female who has had a gypsy like existance due to the fact that her Mom was always on the move. Violet was afraid of commitment so when she actually fell for a guy she ran--. Her Mom pulled a fast one which got both Violet and her sister together--but Violet still had a life none of her friends knew about.

Then the man of Violets dreams showed up with her Mom for her sister's wedding with the guy she had run from all those years ago--Fiasco-as you can well imagine! Then her

Bayside Escape is book four of the Bayside Summers series of contemporary romances. This is a stand alone story, but to get the most from the series I suggest reading them in order as characters from the previous books all appear here.

This is the story of Violet and Andre and their second chance at love. The pair met abroad two years ago, but broke up when Violet was called back to the States. They meet once more at Desiree's wedding (Violet's sister).

Bayside Escape by Melissa Foster

Dr. Andre Shaw had no idea that taking a break to decompress and going to a wedding with a woman he knew and worked with would provide him with the opportunity to find out why Violet Vancroft left him without an explanation two years before. They got off to a bit of a rough start their second time around but once the air was cleared and they realized they were still in love with one another there was an easy romance to read and enjoy. The two are perfect together

This is the fourth book in this series and while they can be read as a standalone, I highly suggest that you read them in order, as several characters makes repeat appearances. Also, it will help you understand Violet on a deeper level.

This is the best romance book I have read in a while.
This second chance romance about Violet and Andre is a beautiful story mixing family, sorrow, friendship, love, passion in lovely paragraphs.
It all begins with Lisa, Violet and Desiree's mother, and it had me thinking about motherhood a lot while reading the book. It is difficult and hard, maybe she choose what was best for her but Melissa Foster managed to redeem her in the book in a nice way.
Violet and Andre have so much feelings and love,

This was a second chance romance novel. I really didn’t connect to the characters specially Voilets character . I was dual minded if I should continue reading this story or just leave it in the midst . I continued reading it coz of Andre’s character really liked his character. I have read stories by Melissa Foster before and have enjoyed her writing style . This was not one of her best books. I have definitely read and enjoyed other more than this one

This book is full of delicious steam, tension, and love. Different lifestyles can often clash, but what happens when a brief affair completely turns lives around after tearing you apart? Second chances are rare, and sometimes life drops one right in your lap. But can Andre and Violet move on from their tumultuous split and the differences in their lives now to take a second chance at love? You won't want to miss this spicy couple!

This book is FANTASTIC!!! Violet has always been a bit of a mystery and I love the way Foster peels back the layers of Violet's armor to reveal the beautiful person she is within.

Andre was burned badly by Violet's fleeing and ironically comes to Bayside to escape his memories only to find her in the place he least expected.

I love how Andre and Violet take a journey together to realize how they have both changed and how they can have the best of both worlds.

I’m a big fan of Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom series. I think I’ve read almost every book going all the way back to The Snow Sisters. I’ve also been a Violet fan since first meeting her in the first book in this Bayside Summers series. She hides a tender, loyal heart longing for acceptance under a tough as boot leather persona rather than risk re-experiencing the abandonment she experienced from her parents as a child.
