Sweet Escape at Bayside Book Review and Giveaway



NEW RELEASE........ 

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 romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.

Hold on to your hat for Violet's fun, flirty, and romantic love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime!

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn’t stand a chance—or at least that’s what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she’d never really known—so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she’d always craved and the roots she’d never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it’s not the reunion either one imagined. But they’ve never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre’s time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they’re destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

About SWEET WITH HEAT novels... 
Sweet with Heat books are the sweet editions of the award-winning Love in Bloom steamy romance novels by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Sweet with Heat books convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language. Full of humor, heart, and satisfying happily ever afters, Sweet with Heat novels are perfect beach reads. 

My thoughts:

Andre and Vi's story is filled with innocent love that's tinged with despair, loss, and anger. I've been waiting for Violet's story for a long time, and the fact that she reconnected with Andre, her one love, made me smile!

Violet and Andre came together with passion for life and each other, which quickly developed into love. However, 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 look for her. And she has moved on with her life, keeping parts of herself separate so that no one knew the real her.

When Lizza returns for a wedding and brings Andre as a date, their relationship is back in the forefront of both of their minds, and Violet feels that she has no choice but to run. But now she's put down roots and loves where she is, so she doesn't want to run.

Can they get past their old problems in order to contend with the new ones? Can they work through how different their lives are? 

This was such a fun read, and I absolutely loved hearing more about so many of the Bayside crew! I can't wait for more of their books.

Bayside Escapes Book Review and Giveaway


Bayside Heat (Bayside Summers Book 3) by [Foster, Melissa]
NEW RELEASE........
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.

Hold on to your hat for Violet's wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime! 

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn't stand a chance-or at least that's what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she'd never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night. 

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she'd always craved and the roots she'd never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it's not the reunion either one imagined. But they've never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre's time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they're destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all. 

My thoughts:

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 her life, keeping parts of herself in separate little boxes so that no one knew the real her.

When Lizza returns for a wedding and brings Andre as a date, their relationship is back in the forefront, and Violet feels that she has no choice but to run. But now she's put down roots and loves where she is.

Can they get past their old problems in order to contend with the new ones? Can they work through how different their lives are? 

This was such a fun read, and I absolutely loved hearing more about so many of the Bayside crew! I can't wait for more of their books.

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.

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.

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.

The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever Review and Giveaway


NEW RELEASE…

Fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling, and discover the magic of the Montgomerys. The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a standalone novel featuring a fiercely loyal hero and a smart, sassy heroine.

IN THE CORNER OF HEARTBREAK AND FOREVER... 
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters' drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again--ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan's leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle's business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he's spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed's spell again--and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he's never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas...

My thoughts:

Grace is crazy busy with her career in New York, and she has spent her life running from her small hometown and the memories in it, but she is convinced to take a break to spend time with family and teach a screenwriting class in her hometown.

Reed has come home after years of nursing a broken heart, and is shocked to find Grace standing in front of him after all these years. They quickly fall back into old routines, but their relationship was so broken that it may never be able to be repaired. They only have a few weeks together, so they agree to make the best of it and not worry about the future.

But with Reed's life and future in Oak Falls and Grace's in New York, can they make things last beyond these short weeks?

This is a wonderful story that encompasses not only Reed and Grace's love, but small town life (and big family life too!) It was such an enjoyable addition to the series, and I can't wait to read more! 

**
The Corner of Heartbreak and Forever is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Embracing Her Heart, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa's sweet-romance pen name.

Mercy Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE....

The torment builds and builds and builds…. 


He can't deny it. 

But in what form will the pressure erupt? 

Cooper Chain isn't just down on his luck -- he's almost down for the count. The mob wants a piece of him, and he sees no way out.

It's a special week for Willow Ball, a woman who's survived her own tribulations to reach this milestone in her life.

Through fate -- or a temporary misalignment of the stars -- Willow and Cooper cross paths for the first time since college. Will an unexpected spark re-ignite the flame?

A shattering discovery changes everything for Willow and Cooper. The murder is unlike any other. But what will the cops do about it?

Attacks ensure, chaos ruptures a family . . . Through it all, how can Willow and Cooper find the killer?

But it's not over. As the bodies pile up, a pattern develops and it rocks Willow and Cooper to the core.

And then someone emerges after a three-decade disappearance. Could he be connected to this string of murders?

The past might provide the breadcrumbs to end this nightmare. But Willow and Cooper may not live long enough to see it through.

Will mercy save a life or end many?

Get MERCY now! 

My thoughts:

I absolutely loved Mr. Mefford's Redemption series, and I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about starting a new series, with new characters. Mr. Mefford makes his characters so real that you feel like they're your friends (or your enemies). So my heart wasn't quite ready for a new series, with all new characters.

However, Mr. Mefford did not disappoint! This book jumped straight in, not allowing you any time to stop and think. Before you know it the main characters have crossed paths (after decades apart), and the mystery has begun.

So far I really enjoy these characters, and I love getting to know the people around them. There's lots of suspense, quite a bit of humor, and enough texture to make the story interesting. I can't wait to read the next one in the series!


If you're a fan of Michael Connelly's Ballard and Bosch, David Baldacci's King and Maxwell, Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles, and the TV show "Castle," then you'll be sucked into this first, page-turning Ball & Chain thriller.
Available to buy from....

Readers are saying… 
"MERCY is full of suspense and sass. An exciting, mind-blowing adventure." 

 "Willow Ball and Cooper Chain are flawed and funny, yet so very real in how they deal with the heart-pounding curve balls." 

 "You'll be enthralled by the gripping story, and you'll laugh out loud from the snarky interactions between Willow and Cooper. I hope this is the first of many killer Ball & Chain adventures." 

 "The most original new thriller series out there!"

About the Author
Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, #2 bestselling author on Barnes and Noble, and a Readers' Favorite Gold Medal winner.

John W. Mefford has been writing his debut novel since he first entered the work force almost thirty years ago, although he never put words on paper until 2009. Once he started writing, however, he couldn't stop. Many readers ask John from where he gets his ideas. Well, he's a veteran of the corporate rat-race, a former journalist, and he's always been an astute observer of human and social behavior. On top of that, he's really good at embellishing.

A member of International Thriller Writers, John writes novels full of electrifying suspense -- the same types of books he has loved to read since before he could shave.

When he’s not writing, he chases his youth on bike or a basketball court, all while making mental
notes of people and societies across the land.
