As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous beachfront resort where he works with his best friends and brother. When Desiree Cleary moves in next door to take care of her mother's estate, Rick sets his sights on the sexy and sweet pre-school teacher. But Desiree's sister isn't keen on the fast-talking playboy making moves on the younger sister she's never had a chance to get to know. And she has other ideas in store - like opening Summers Inn, a bed and breakfast that could be big-time competition for Rick's resort.

I read Bayside Desires when it was first released. I just listened to the audio book, narrated by BJ Harrison. I love listening to Melissa's audiobooks driving back and forth to work. BJ Harrison does an amazing job with his narration.
I was surprised when Melissa announced a new series. I knew I would love it but didn't know how much. I would give this book 10 starts if I could. Bayside Desires will have you laughing. This book will not disappoint, its is another must read with of course a HEA.

It's been years since Sally Tuft's husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she'd ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been. Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met.

**Edit to my original review**
I read this wonderful story back in 2016. I just listened to the audiobook narrated by BJ Harrison. I love Melissa's audio books. I listen to them going back and forth to work. It makes my commute so much more bearable. 
This is not your typical boys meets girl love story. Sally and Gage were best friends for many years. Every thing changed by one night in Vegas. There might have been some alcohol involved. That one night was the best thing to happen to Sally and Gage. I have been waiting so long for for this story. It was so worth the wait. I found myself laughing and shed a few tears. Gage is so romantic. This is definitely a must read. Melissa never disappoints.

I previously read this book. I just listened to the audiobook. Wow it is just as good. The narration of BJ Harrison is amazing. I truly enjoy listening to him.
Melissa is an amazing author and she never disappoints. Jake and Addy set my device on fire. Addy is a strong woman and Jake is a very confident man. Together they have such banter and OMG the heat is sizzling.

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

I originally read Anything for Love back in June 2018. I just now listened to the audio version of this book. What an amazing narration was by Ava Erickeson & Zachary Webber. I truly love listening the audio version/ I listen in my car going back and forth to work.
OMG Charlotte! What can I say about her, she had me cracking up with her blow ups and handcuffs. I found myself laughing so many times. Hal had asked Beau if he could go to the Inn to do some repairs. Beau had a hard time moving on from his past. Charlotte and Beau are proof that fairy tales do exist. What a wonderful story. This book is a standalone with a definite HEA. A perfect summer read.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn - and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

Not only did I love reading the book back in May, I just listened to the audio version of this book. I love the narration of Lucy River & Aiden Snow. I love the male/female narration Listening to audiobooks makes my drive to and from work bearable.

I always love returning to the Seaside gang. Parker is a famous actress and Grayson is an artist who have correspond and fell for each other over months of email. This book had a twist I never expected. I truly do not know how Addison does it. She writes so many book and none of them disappoint. This book is a HEA with no cliffhangers.

I read this book back in April. I just now listened to the audio version. I loved, loved, loved, the narration Andi Arndt & Sebastian York. Having a male and female do the narration is wonderful. I love audio books, they make driving back and forth to work tolerable.
Reed and Grace were sweethearts back in school. However, they kept their relationship secret due to rival schools. Grace leaves her small town to become something. Reed return to help out an ailing family. Who says you can't have a 2nd chance with your first love. This time around Reed will have no sneaking around. What a fantastic story. Melissa is great making me escape from my daily life.

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

Melissa is truly an amazing story teller. You get lost from the real world. Ayla and Ty went their separate ways after meeting and spending only 5 days together. Ayla said if it was meant to be fate would bring them back together. Just when you say to yourself you are not going to cry, you do. Tissues are a must when reading this book. If I could give this story more then 5 stars I totally would.
