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. And of course, you'll see cameos from the Seaside Summers characters!

"With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" (NYT best seller Julie Kenner)

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" (NYT best seller Lauren Blakely)

In Bayside Passions....

When Emery Andrews's best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who's as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives and their secrets over video chats and phone calls, Dean's ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he'll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a naked man in her kitchen the first morning she's there, Dean doesn't hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now, Emery will see what's right before her eyes - although that guy she's got a date with might be a problem.

Dean and Emery

Audiobook Review… I had never listened to an audiobook before I started listening to Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom Series. Now I cannot stop listening. I’ve broadened my listening but BJ Harrison’s (narrator) is still my favorite. He brings Melissa’s characters to life, brings feeling to the stories, and makes me feel what the characters are feeling. I can hear the flirting, feel the fun, and enjoy the love that Emery and Dean share.

Ebook Review…Back at my favorite book setting, Cape Cod. This time Melissa Foster takes her readers to Bayside and we get to catch up with the Bayside crew. Dean and Emery deserves to have their story told and I am so excited about it. These two met last summer and have been keeping in touch through FaceTime, text, and phone calls. They have been flirting, sexting, and sharing their lives for so long it seems that they have been together forever.

I laughed often while reading Bayside Passions. Between Violets craziness and Emery’s uncensored reactions I chuckled, giggled, and laughed out loud many times. There were times I cringed at these same ladies and how unrestricted they were at times. But I loved every word of it. I also loved how the rest of the Bayside Crew accepted them as they were. There was never judgment just 100% acceptance.

Together Dean and Emery are opposites. Dean is settled, living his life, and just doing his thing. Enter Emery. She blows his world apart. Leaves her things all over his house, enters his every thought, and changes his life for the better. The best thing is Dean also changes Emery’s life for the better. He brings in some form of order, accepts her for all her quirks, and shows her what true love really is.


I was so happy to be back with these characters. It was wonderful to get to know Dean and Emery better and catch up with the other Bayside characters. I cannot wait for more from this wonderful location and amazing characters.

Friends to Lovers

Bayside Passions by Melissa Foster is a wonderful friends to lovers story. I loved how Emery and Dean finally saw what was right in front of them in this story. The author is incredible at building wonderful characters that have strong friendships and values family relationship and great chemistry. The banter between characters is so good too! I laugh out loud with some of the lines. BJ Harrison is perfect bringing the books to life. His voice is so smooth and expressive.

Simply a love story

This was just a nice little romance . It wasn't filled with a lot of drama or meddling friends. It was a fun, flirty read between a landscaper and a yoga instructor. Two people who considered themselves friends until they ended up being more. Emery and Dean fit together well. Where she was outgoing and direct, Dean was more cautious, but definitely adventurous. When Emery turns to Dean for a place to stay while she's getting her Yoga business up and running, they end up heading into their Bayside passions.

Loved this sweet and heartwarming romance!

I love these cast of characters in this sweet and sexy series. This story is about Dean and Emery's romance and it was so much fun! They had become close, long distance friends, after meeting earlier at Rick and Desiree’s Christmas party. After a heartbreaking betrayal, Emery is moving to Bayside to live and work. Dean couldn't be happier, since he has wanted Emery from the first moment he met her. Emery is so naive and clueless to her feelings, but her attraction and desire for Dean grows stronger everyday. But she has been burned by a work romance before and is afraid to cross that line again. But Dean is so patient with Emery, trying not to scare her off and ruin their friendship. He is determined to convince her how perfect they are for each other and win her over. They are so cute together and I really cheered for their HEA! This sweet, engaging, and sexy romance is filled with witty banter, quirky characters, awkward situations, and fiery chemistry. Narrator, B.J. Harrison brings these characters to life and makes you fall in love with this quaint seaside community. I loved this fun, sweet & sexy romance, and want more of these wonderful friends and family of Bayside!

Great book!

Bayside Passions is a great friends to lovers story. Emery Andrews has moved to the Cape for a fresh start and to be closer to her BFF Desiree. After several failed relationships, Emery has vowed no more dates with friends or bosses. Dean Masters knows what he wants in a woman and that woman is Emery. After becoming her new best friend and having spent several months talking to her daily, their friendship is heading out of the friend zone, that’s is if Dean can convince Emery to give up her rule. Dean and Emery are great together, they are both such strong characters. Bayside Passions is another great Melissa Foster book. I always anticipate her releases.
Not only did I enjoy reading Bayside Passions, I enjoyed the audiobook as well. B.J. Harrison brings this story and the characters to life. I always enjoy listening to him narrate books.

Dean and Emery are a breath of fresh air.

The beauty of Melissa Foster as an author is that readers get to experience the many sides of her personality through the stories she tells. The Bayside Summers series is less intense, but no less riveting. Dean and Emery are a breath of fresh air with their flirty banter and budding friendship. However, Bayside Passions is a Melissa Foster novel. Underneath the breeze lies a few gusts. There will be patches of rain that will darken the canvas, but in the end the storm clouds make it worth the ride.

Loved it

**Edit to my original review**
I just listened to the audio book narrates by BJ Harrison. I just love his narration. I listen in my car going back and forth to work. It makes my commute bareable.

Melissa has done it again. Her books get better and better. Just when you think she can't top her latest, she does. Dean and Emerys relationship started as a flirtation. Then they became close friends through Skype. Dean had strong feelings for Emery. However, Emery thought of them as friends, very good friends. Emery swore off dating friends. The last relationship she had, she had to leave great job. Emery decided to move to Willfleet permanently instead of just going to work as a yoga instructor for the summer. Things change when Emery had to nice in with Dean for a while.
This story has a HEA and no cliffhangers.

Good book!!

This was a good long distance friends to lovers story for Dean and Emery. The characters were strong characters despite their hang ups in life with a strong sense of family for each of them that is relatable to the reader as all families have inner issues. I enjoyed Dean's determination to get Emery to see that they were already in a relationship once she moved to the Cape and his determination to get her to see that nothing about them would change. I enjoyed Emery's spirit and strength, especially when dealing with Dean's father. Their story moved along well and kept me interested and I enjoyed them from the start. The narration by Mr. Harrison was well performed and enthusiastic through out the story making it enjoyable to listen to while keeping my interest as well. I would recommend this book to others.

Viking and a Wild Woman!

Melissa had a talent writing stories that I love. B. J. Harrison has a great voice that makes me love his narration.
Dean Masters left his job as a nurse to do landscaping for places around Bayside. He meets Emory Andrews while she visited her friend Desiree. When Emory goes back to Virginia, her boss hit on her. When Desiree offer her a job at the Inn being a yoga instructor, she takes it. Emory and Dean had been in contact with each other every since her visit. When Emory told Dean, she would not date friends he agreed, but worked to change her mind. The first morning Emory was there she found a naked man in her kitchen. When she told Dean, he put her in his guest bedroom. What a time Dean had dealing with her quirks. I loved it!
