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 can see that this is going to be another great series by Ms. Foster and I can not wait to see the other books that come into this new series. I enjoyed watching Rick and Desiree fall in love and work through their family issues of loss, trust, abandonment, their insecurities as well as their family dynamics. This story was kind of had an insta-love feel but it worked without being cliché. The characters were well written with some amazing chemistry between them and the plot flowed well and did not feel rushed. The narration from Mr. Harrison continues to be performed well drawing the listener in to the story and making it an enjoyable book to listen to. I have yet to be disappointed by one of Ms. Foster's books and this one kept me interested from page one and fit well into a spin off of the Seaside series. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and would recommend it to others.

Dylan and Tiffany's story was a hot read with little drama that was a good book. Their story told from both POV moved along well as the pair worked through their issues from the past and present to find love with each other. The chemistry the pair had was off the charts and Dylan was a dream man in that he was not afraid to let his feelings be known for Tiffany. Tiffany was a little hard to connect with has she was very career driven and at times felt like she was not giving Dylan a chance at all. The narration from Mr. Woodson was okay. He did well with the male characters but I was unable to connect with the female characters with his narration. Overall, this was a good book that I did enjoy.

The first book of the Bad series was a good book that I enjoyed since Mick and Amanda were well written characters that had chemistry. Their story moved along well and the story line kept me interested but I was not a fan of the narrator making it hard to get into the book. I have been a fan of all of Ms. Foster's books and this one was a good book just the narration did not do it for me as I could not get into the narrator's voice or how he was reading the story and at times making it hard to take seriously.

This was a short book with the friends to lovers theme that was a pretty good book. Jackson and Erica have been friends since high school, even friends with benefits and have finally realized their feelings for each other. My only issue with this book is that the revelation came on their annual camping trip after Laney (Erica)'s birthday after her boyfriend had proposed to her. The big issue for me is that her boyfriend was aware of her relationship with Jackson, even the friends with benefits aspect of her relationship with him. The pair did have chemistry together and I liked to return of the characters from the previous books. The narration by Mr. Woodson was performed well making it an enjoyable listening experience.

Cooper and Cici's book was a great way to end this series and such an enjoyable book despite it being really short. Their story of lost love in tragedy and then their reuniting after 4 years and a surprise daughter made for an interesting read since it moved along so well and so quickly. The pair worked through their issues and had amazing chemistry together. I continue to enjoy the family importance in Ms. Foster's books as well as the return of the characters from the previous books. I enjoyed the narration by Mr. Woodson. He brought the book to life and making it an enjoyable listen.

This was a quick book that I enjoyed from the start. Heath and Ali were a great couple with explosive chemistry between them. Heath was different from his brother Logan from book 1 of this series but I liked that he was his own man with personality and a strong sense of family as well as issues that he needed to work through to find love with Ali. Ali was an untrusting character due to her past dating experiences but was well written and close to her family as well. Watching the pair find love while working through their relationship issues was enjoyable and swoon worthy. The plot of their story moved along well and even though Heath and Ali found love quickly, the pace of the plot did not feel rushed. The narration from Mr. Kraft was performed well bringing this story to life and making it an enjoyable read to listen to. I would recommend this book to others.

As the first book of her new Wild Boys series Melissa Foster continues to create stories that pull the reader in and keep them captivated. I loved the references to characters from her other books to tie her works together while setting them apart. I also loved the character's strong values for family, trust and honesty.

While the book is different than her other works, it kept me interested and unable to put down. Logan is a private investigator that stumbles upon Stella and works tirelessly to keep her safe from an ex-boyfriend who is determined to kill her. The pair struggled with their feelings for each other as well as dealing with their own inner struggles in life.

The narration of this book was excellent. I enjoyed Mr. Kraft's performance of this book as his voice had me hooked even before he started telling the story. He told the story well and enthusiastically. I can't wait to hear him tell the rest of the books in the series!

I have been waiting patiently for Gage and Sally's story to be told and I loved it from start to finish. I was glad that Gage and Sally finally ended up together after 'dancing around' their feelings for one another for years and I liked how they ended up together as I really did not see that coming. I enjoyed Gage and Sally as characters as they were relatable. As a reader, one could connect with either of the pair's issues or concerns making them real. I also liked how both characters were older and not the typical 20 something character that is commonly found. Both characters had real life experiences between them also making them relatable as characters. The plot of their story flowed well and had me hooked from the first page. I can not say enough about this book and about Ms. Foster as an author. I have enjoyed her work for quite some time and would recommend this book as well as her other books to others. Mr. Harrison continues to narrate Ms. Foster's stories with much enthusiasm giving the story life and keeping me interested in the story.

This was another great story by Ms. Foster. The characters Addy and Jake have to work toward their HEA as they battle trust issues, control issues, insecurities, their lust for each other as well as their pasts. The plot of this story was fast moving but not too fast making this book hard to put down. I enjoyed the return of some of the characters of the previous books as the start of this book was at Duke and Gabriella's wedding with Boone and Trish's wedding to follow. I also enjoyed how family centered it was as with all of Ms. Foster's other books. As usual, I loved that despite the epic hot sex the characters were having the moment when they realize that despite not trying, they fell in love with the other. Addy fought this the hardest but I enjoyed watching her eye opening moment. I like how the characters reflected inside themselves to get to their HEA. Overall, this was a great story with a lot of self discovery for Jake and Addy as Jake learned that he could not charge in all of the time and Addy learned to trust. The narration from Mr. Harrison was performed well. He was an enthusiastic reader making the book just come to life for me. I enjoyed his narration as I have with all of the narration that he has done with Ms. Foster's other books. I, like the other books in this series would recommend it to others!
