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!

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!

No one does unforgettable, like Foster.

In the past I've had the pleasure of reading Bayside Escape.  Violet and Andre are my favorite couple. For me that's something special, because I never forget a character or the way my heart feels when I meet them for the first time.   This couple is hard to forget, no matter how many times you revisit their journey. Emotion bleeds off the page and takes root in your soul.  Foster continues to outdo herself, each story she writes is better than the one before.  Woodward and Snow turn haunting to magical. No one does unforgettable, like Foster.

Outstanding!

Melissa has brought us another outstanding story of Cape Cod. The Narrators were amazing! Deva and Aiden captured every emotions with their voices.
Violet was taken away from her sister and step-father by her mother Lizza and taken to different places in the world. She met Andre at one of the places, who was a prominent Doctor and she fell in love. Andre fell in love with her also. She got a message from her mother telling her that her sister was in danger of dying, so she left Andre without a word and went without telling him a thing. She searched for her for two years. Her mother brought Andre to her sisters wedding and Violet thought he was her mothers lover. The hurt settled in Violet's heart. They both tried to replace each other during that time and couldn't. Then the fireworks exploded. I loved it!

Good book!

This forth installment of this series did not disappoint with Violet and Andre's story. Theirs was a tale of second chance love as the when reunited in an unexpected turn of events, the pair had chemistry that was off the charts. Both Violet and Andre were strong characters that had many issues that they managed to work through but it was nice to see the inner Violet making me see that she was completely different than she wanted others to see. I liked the return of the characters from the previous books in this series as well as the turns this story took to get Violet and Andre their HEA.
The audio version of this book was performed by both Aiden Snow and Derva Woodward. The pair performed the story well making it an enjoyable listening experience. They both did well differentiating between the different characters as well as bringing Violet and Andre's story to life.
I look forward to seeing where this series will go next and would recommend this book others.
