Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod.

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:

3.5 – 4 Stars
Bayside Desires is a sweet read, that prefect lazy day or beach read where you want something to make you smile and swoon – this is that book! Rick and Desiree are wonderful characters that you can relate to and fall in love with. I think this a fun start to a new series I’m definitely looking forward to.
Desiree and Rick have both ended up in The Cape for the summer, Desiree tricked and guilted into running her mom’s gallery with her half-sister and Rick is there working on a resort with his brothers. When the two meet there is an instant connection for both and it’s the start of a sweet summer (and hopefully longer) romance! Rick and Desiree both have things to work out this summer though and the question is can they do it together.
For me this was a fun and sweet read, heart-warming and full of characters you want to be your friends. I really adored Rick, his heart and his sense of humor just totally got me. Desiree is such a sweetheart, I loved seeing her grow in this story. Yes, we’ve got some insta-love here but there are things these two have to deal with, coming to terms with families, forgiveness and life choices. Overall, an enjoyable read and I’m really looking forward to more in this series!
