Bayside Passions 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 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.

All BAYSIDE SUMMERS books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:
Bayside Desires Book 1
Bayside Passions
Bayside Heat (available for pre-order)
Bayside Escape


*** Bayside Summers is part of the Love in Bloom romance collection by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books. Visit Melissa's website for family trees, series checklists, and more.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**


My thoughts:


Dean and Emery have the world's most amazing friendship! While they've only known each other for a few months they've spent an amazing amount of time on the phone, Skype, and watching movies together over video chat. When Emery moves to Wellfleet the two have the chance to connect in person.


Dean has had feelings for Emery for quite some time, and Emery would love to love Dean. The problem is her rules about relationships. Since Emery has lost friends in the past she refuses to date friends. And she's not willing to even think about a relationship with Dean since they're so close. Can Dean convince Emery to give them a shot? 


I swear, I adore these two! They are so perfectly suited for each other...whether for friends or lovers. I could read another five books about their relationship! I'd love to sit with them and binge watch tv and just watch their reactions to each other.


This book is part of a series, but it can definitely be read alone. You'll enjoy reading the whole series, so don't wait!

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.

Ambushed in Paradise Book Review and Giveaway


The Keys is a great place to hide a seashell bucket full of secrets.

Creole…shot…dead. Three words Madison Westin never thought she’d hear in the same sentence. Creole promised. He pinky swore on it.

But even through a blur of tears fed by prescription-strength margaritas, Madison can tell when things are shady. Sure, Creole was undercover, but she deserves more than sketchy non-answers, an urn of ashes, and a secret life crawling out of the woodwork.

Nothing’s adding up, nothing that remotely sounds like the Creole she knew and loved. Calling in every one of her IOU’s—only to find some of her most reliable information sources drying up—Madison sets out to dig up what really happened to Creole. She never thought the truth would wrap its arms around her and make her wonder if she’s chasing a ghost… or taking a vacation from sanity.

Ambushed in Paradise is book #12 in the action-packed Paradise series. Come along with Madison and Fab as they dig up the truth and share more than one hair raising adventure. 


The Paradise series, are Florida Keys mysteries, “great as stand-alone reads, but they're like chips...you won't be able to devour just one!”


My thoughts:

I'm really surprised that I read this whole book! I was so mad about Creole's death that I almost rage quit the book. However, I had to stick around to find out how Madison would survive. I should've known that she would make it day by day, with Fab and Didier at her side.

Madison of course wants to find out what happened to Creole, and no one wants to answer her questions. As usual Fab manages to set them up with crazy jobs, which sometimes end with bullets. I cried, I laughed, and I enjoyed the story.

This book can be read on its own, but it will be infinitely better if you read the whole series. You won't regret it, I promise!

Available to buy from.....

"I love the characters, Brown does an amazing job of creating complex and interesting characters!" 

"This was one of the author's strongest books yet"

"I have enjoyed this entire series, but this book is a standout."

About the Author
I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; poetry, sappy short stories (my best friend made me swear that I’d never show anyone until I changed the names), and a romance novel shoved under my bed.

I wanted to create books with a wide-range of unforgettable characters, with heat and romance, and lots of guns. It wouldn’t be complete without a slice of humor and charm.

I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

ON The Rocks Book Review and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE....

Her allure is undeniable. 

But is it also toxic?

Ozzie is determined to make this PI gig work, but only on his terms. And then Rosie shows up. She's desperate to get dirt on her powerful, womanizing husband and then move on.

Ozzie knows he has a soft spot for those who've been taken advantage of. The fact she has this raw sex appeal doesn't faze him. Or does it?

Can Ozzie resist the temptation long enough to give this woman her life back?

A case of spousal cheating turns deadly. Who is the culprit? More importantly, who was the intended victim? 

Even with Ozzie's heart still drawn to Nicole, he knows he can't turn his back on the woman who needs him most. He just needs a little time to pull the pieces together.

And then all hell breaks loose.

Another murder…this one more personal than the first. Ozzie can't make sense of any of it. The lies, the cheating all blur together. He's stuck in the middle of this twisted storm, unable to find the truth, losing trust in his ability to deny his desires.

Can a life of abuse justify a seduction of greed? And can Ozzie somehow uncover the root of the conspiracy before more lives are lost?

Who will be the last woman standing?


My thoughts:

This is another great book in the Redemption Series! I'm enjoying watching Ozzie get his feet under him after his life fell apart in the first book.

Ozzie is new to being a parent, and new to being a P.I. when a new client comes in looking for help with a cheating spouse. The case soon spirals into murder, deceit, and some of the craziest situations anyone could find themselves in.

While this book could be read as a stand-alone story I definitely recommend reading the series (or at least the Ozzie Novak part of the series).

The Scoop 
By now you're probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the soon-to-be-released Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That's part of the mystery that I'm slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.

Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I've included a cross-over character -- it's a lot more fun that way. Plus -- and here's the real kicker -- I'll write a final six novels that brings all of the major characters together -- Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless. At least that's my hope.

Starting with IN The End (Nov. 10 release), I'll be launching a new book every 2-4 weeks. IN The End will segue into the Ozzie Novak Thrillers. ON Edge (book 1), is due out on November 28. From there, it will be non-stop suspense until all six Ozzie books are released. And my editor tells me that Ozzie Novak is my best character yet.:) So, I hope you're ready for some thrilling binge-reading.
