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.
Gavin is about to find out that Harper really does exist—and she’s going to knock his socks off! Find out for yourself in Bayside Romance!
When screenwriter Harper Garner got a shot at the big-time in LA, she celebrated her brave cross-country move with her first and only one-night stand—connecting so deeply with the sexy, brilliant man, she broke the number-one rule of one-night stands and left her phone number. Not hearing from him was only the first in a long line of hope-shattering, confidence-busting blows. Ten months later, Harper is done with men and done with LA. She pulls up her big-girl panties and heads home to Cape Cod to start over.
On the surface, interior designer Gavin Wheeler has it all: a successful business, a loving family, and a close-knit group of friends. But Gavin once endured a heartbreak so painful, he was sure he’d never feel anything for a woman again. A chance encounter at a music festival with a gorgeous, down-to-earth blonde proved him wrong, but when morning came, the woman who made him crave more was gone.
A serendipitous evening reunites Harper with her devastatingly delicious one-night stand, and the connection is just as intense as she remembered. Harper’s life is too unsettled for a relationship, but Gavin is determined to help her find her way, especially if it leads straight to his heart. Moonlight conversations lead to steamy kisses, and as romance blooms, it stirs a love too real to deny. But when Gavin’s past collides with the life they’re building, it has the power to ruin everything.
Thank you to Lisa for letting me take part in this blog tour and to Melissa for my copy of this book. This is the 5th book in the Bayside Summers series but they can all be read as standalones. All of Melissa’s stories are connected and once you enter this world you will likely be sucked in and never want to leave.
Harper has been mentioned in the other Bayside books and I’ve been eagerly awaiting her return home so that we can finally meet her. When Harper does return she is pretty much at rock bottom. She has lost her confidence in her writing and her judgement! Harper is a sweet girl who has lost her way. Thankfully Gavin is there to help nudge her back on the right path.
Gavin, oh Gavin. I fell hard and fast for our interior designer. He is very supportive and knows just how much nudging Harper needed. Gavin has been through hell in his past and has worked extremely hard to move on.
This was a sweet romance with a lot of heat. Melissa has once again written a story that was easy to fall in love with. I love the Bayside gangs breakfasts. I wish I was a morning person and had a breakfast gang like this.
I loved returning to Melissa’s world and I can’t wait for my next trip.
