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 stand-alone 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.

Bayside Heat

Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned - even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts, has to offer, and Drake's roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape that all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager, she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she's finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he's never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they've both been aching to walk. But Serena's determined not to give up her shot at the career she's always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily-ever-after?

Good book!

There have been few times that I have read a book series and thought 'finally these two will finally get together' and this series gave me that thought! As I have read the other books in this series that has been in the back of my mind and I am glad that this pair got to have their story told. Drake and Serena are not the typical friends to lovers type couple in that despite knowing each other since they were young kids, they were able to go their separate ways in life only to return and come to terms with their feelings for each other even if they got a push for more life experience opportunities to face their feelings. I enjoyed both Drake and Serena and the chemistry that they had together and I liked that the other characters from the previous books as well as other series made appearances in their story. I could not get enough of this pair and I look forward to seeing where this series goes next. The narration by the two narrators, Ava Erikson and Aiden Snow made this an enjoyable book to listen to as it made the story easy to follow and really brought both characters to life. I would recommend this book to others.

4.5 Beautiful Friends to Lovers Stars!

This third book in the Bayside Summers series was a beautiful friends to lovers romance! Drake and Serena have been best friends for years, and they know each other better than they know themselves. Drake has always wanted Serena, but never wanted to hold her back from achieving all her dreams. Serena is resigned that she can never have Drake, so she takes a job in Boston to move on with her life. This is the catalyst that Drake needs to finally be honest about his feelings for her. But Serena now lives hours away so they will have to work hard to have the love they always wanted. But big city jobs and commitments soon get in the way of Serena being with the people she loves most. Drake has enjoyed his own success, so will make any sacrifice for them to be together. I loved the way that Serena and Drake fell easily into their new romantic relationship. Their strong friendship effortlessly became a robust and fiery romance. I loved Serena and Drake together so much, they fit so seamlessly, had explosive chemistry, that I really cheered for their HEA! This is a beautiful, heartfelt, and charming story filled with fun banter, quirky characters, awkward situations, and fiery chemistry.

Ava Erickson, and Aiden Snow were perfectly cast as Serena and Drake. They delivered the characterizations, anticipation, and passion so flawlessly, making me see both Serena and Drake so clearly in my mind, that I was easily lost in the story. I was so invested in their performance and in these characters, that I was totally captivated from start to finish.
I loved this fun, sweet & sexy romance, and want more of these wonderful friends and family of Bayside!

I really enjoyed reading Bayside Heat, but the audio version really brought this story to life. Ava Erickson and Aiden Snow did an excellent job narrating. They added depth to each character in this story.

Funny, sunny and sweeter than honey.

The heat is on. Foster steps into the season with a whole lot of sunshine and a hint of heartache. Bayside Heat is a tempting walk down memory lane with two friends afraid to risk their hearts. Serena wanted forever, but Drake never made a move. Relocated to the friend zone, she's given up hope of ever having more. When a once in a lifetime opportunity comes her way, will Drake face his fears and listen to his heart? Funny, sunny and sweeter than honey.

loved it

**Edit to my original review**
I just listened to the audio book narrates by Ava Erickson and Aden Snow . I just love the narration. I listen in my car going back and forth to work. It makes my commute bareable.
OMG I loved this book. Drake and Serena have been long time friends. The question is, have they been romantically together in the past? With Serena moving away to take her dream job. What will happen? I can't say enough about this book. I loved, loved, loved, it.

Super Hot

I have loved the other 2 books in this series. No surprise that the 3rd book is just as awesome!! Melissa Foster never disappoints me!! Serena and Drake's story was so good. Drake Savage and Serena Mallory have been friends for years. They both have crushed on each other for years but never acted on it. Before Serena leaves for her new job they give into their desires. Neither can live without the other but can they make it work with Serena's job in Boston. I love all the secondary characters in this series. Highly recommend this book. Ava Erickson and Aiden Snow did amazing with the narration!!

Loved this audio!

What a great story from Melissa Foster. This is my first book in the series and I didn't feel like I was missing anything beginning here, although I would love to go back and read/listen to the previous books. This is a wonderful friends-to-lovers story about Serena and Drake. Plus we get to have all of their friends right along side them for their journey. Both narrators did a wonderful job conveying all of the characters. Definitely worth a listen!
