Publisher's Summary

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.

Bayside Summers is part of the Love in Bloom romance collection by New York Times and USA Today best-selling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. While each book may be listened to as a stand-alone, you might enjoy 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.

Binge listen the rest of the Love in Bloom series. Filled with heat, humor, and heart - and always a happily ever after - these steamy romances are perfect beach listens!

Spicy and heart warming!

Desiree and Violet have felt like they raised themselves since they were young, because they basically did. Their mother was flighty and never around when they needed her. Years later, Violet, the bad girl sister who wears motorcycle gear and acts like nothing bothers her is put through a test when her lost love Andre shows up from out of the blue with non-other than her MOTHER! This story was about reconnecting and sharing our vulnerabilities with those you love. It took Violet another possible heartbreak to understand where she went wrong with Andre, but they were able to get it all back AND MORE! it's hot, hot, hot! The audio was great, I really enjoyed both voice and they brought the story to life for me.

chemistry, secrets, tears, chocies

The chemistry between Violet and Andre keeps you in the story. How could he be with her and show up to a wedding with her mother? The journey back to a second chance with the one that got away will make you a believer that true love exist out there somewhere. These two had that chance to cement their romance over time, space, and a foreign country. Something had her run and left him heart broken. Just because she ran did not mean she was not invested in the romance they had.

Love. True love can span time. It can keep your heart true and open all at the same time. Its the kind of love that you want to help you through the hard times of life. It helps you keep your eyes on the prize. Clearing up old hurts and opening up the door to more was just what Andre and Violet (Daisy) needed to have the second chance at making their love so much more than the first time allowed.

Violet finds exactly what she has wanted all her life but once thing changes the course of her life and the direction of her future. Andre was not looking for a love to turn his world around but he found that with Violet. Torn apart by circumstance they both find a chance to reunited and make that love of theirs burn.

Sweet Escape was sweet, endearing, touching. There were tears all around. There were truths discovered. Secrets were shared. Family was more than just blood. Friendships expanded. Melissa Foster knows how to open up a story and invite you to meet new characters and want to know more about them. I look forward to meeting all the new faces (Wicked brothers) meet this time around.

Narration by Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow was spot on. Aiden always brings the goods and make the males sound hot and sexy while still keeping the characters clear. Devra brought me clear and concise female voices and gave a distinction to the males. Hold on tight this one will have you needing some tissue and someone to hug.

Violet gets her HEA

Audiobook Review…Dual narrators add so much to the listening of an audiobook. Melissa Fosters seems to always pick just the right narrators for her stories. Devra Woodward is the perfect female narrator but can seamlessly shift to a male tone when needed. Aiden is the perfect voice for Andre but again, can bring the female tone to the story with no problem at all. Devra and Aiden both brought the characters to life with their tones and were able to share the emotions the characters felt as they read Melissa Foster’s story.

eBook Review…No one should doubt by now that I am a HUGE Melissa Foster fan. One of the things I love about her books is how the secondary characters are as much a part of the story as the main characters. Violet has been a secondary character in the Bayside Summers books from the beginning and I have always been curious about her story. With each Bayside Summer book, I read, I learned a little more about her but Bayside Escape is her story and her time to tell her tale and her time to find her true love and happiness.

Violet has always been a tough as nails, do her own thing, live her own life girl. Now that she lives at Bayside with her sister and friends, I get to see a softer (but not too soft) side to Violet. I love how she does her own thing but always seem to have advice, an ear, or a shoulder to cry on for her friends. I was excited to see her open her heart and let love in all while hoping that she does not lose her snarky attitude.

Andre is the answer to who holds Violet's heart and from the first time she sees him at Bayside, there was no doubt that sparks were going to fly, and things were about to change for Violet. I was worried when he showed up with Lizza but knew that he belonged to Violet. He is perfect for her. He supports her, loves her, pushes her, and lets her find her own answers when needed. He knows when to ask permission and when to just lead the way. Violets reaction to him is perfect. The snarkiness comes out first then the love quickly follows.

This is the perfect addition to the Bayside Summer Series. With this series, each book is a complete story. The characters make appearances in each other’s books but they each have their own book. The books can be read in any order.

Loved it!

I listened to the audio version of this book.
Ms. Foster just keeps writing better and better books. I love the greater background and greater depth to these characters. This is a second chance trope story of Violet and Andre.
What is the worst thing that could happen involving a guy you loved and left behind. Maybe having him show up at your sister's wedding as your mother's date? Yeah, it doesn't get too much worse than that. It does make it even a tad bit worse if you're not crazy about your mother to start with.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I loved the relationship that rekindled between Violet and Andre and being the audience to how they came to trust each other again. Love is in the air!
I was given a complimentary copy of this audiobook. All thoughts are my own.

Great story

Andre has taken a friends advise and went to the Cape. He needed to get his mind off Violet. Little did he know he was going to come face to face with her at her sisters wedding. In seeing Andre for the first time in years, Violet thought he and Lizzie were dating. Violet is one bad a@s chick with an amazing heart and a lot of secrets. As always Melissa makes you laugh and cry. Oh boy did I cry when Violet and Deseriee had their talk. Such a great second chance love story. I loved watching them reconnect.
I love listening to books while I drive back and forth to work. It makes the traffic bearable. I love the narration of Aiden Snow and Devra Woodward.

Wonderful Story

I instantly fell in love with this book, it was absolutley wonderful. Violet comes off with a tough exterior to her family and friends, a complete badass. No one knows the real Violet except one man. It shocks Violet when that one man shows up at her sisters wedding. Andre knows the real Violet and helps Violet expose herself to her family and friends. I love how Violent never holds back and always says what is on her mind. She keeps you on your ties. Bayside Escapes is a sweet, hot and fun romance. You will instantly fall in love with Violet, Andrew and all of the characters at Bayside
Devra Woodward and Aiden Snow do a wonderful job narrating the audio version of this story. They are an enjoy to listen to.

Captivating and Emotional Second Chance romance!

This is such a captivating and emotional second chance romance! I love the world that Foster has created that is filled with so much love, quirky and loyal friendships, and lots of steamy passion. Violet and Andre have a history that left them both heartbroken several years ago. They unexpectedly meet again, under shocking and awkward circumstances. Their attraction and connection has never wavered all these years, and it doesn't take long for them to reconcile. But Andre is only visiting Bayside for a short time. When the end draws near for him to leave, can they work thru the things that separated them in the first place? I loved Violet and Andre and how they worked thru their issues. Violet acts so tough, but is so caring, and giving. On the outside, she and Andre look like total opposites, but Andre doesn't want his life of privilege, he wants to help those in need as well. It was fun seeing friends I care for from other books and how their worlds harmonize. All this was performed flawlessly by narrators, Devra Woodward, and Aiden Snow. They expertly brought these characters to life, immersing me in their world. I was lost to their story telling, laughing, gasping, and sighing from beginning to end. I loved this second chance romance, and can't get enough of the wonderful friends and family of Bayside!
