As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.
Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the badass half sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.
Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.
Bayside Desires is the first book in the Bayside Summers series and features Rick and Desiree. The Bayside Summers series, is a spin off of the Seaside Summers series, and features a crossover of characters. Those familiar with Seaside Whispers, will be aware of Rick's character, and his connection to younger sister Mira, her husband Matt and his nephew Hagan, who also appear within this title.
Bayside Desires is a small town, beach side romance, set in Cape Cod. Rick and Desiree are an endearing pair of characters who embark on a summer fling. Their story is one of healing and acceptance, both have insecurities and abandonment issues, that stem from their past of loss and loneliness. Both are trying to discover their place within their family and career, and decide if they will follow their head or their heart.
Overall this is an incredibly sweet romance, with a perfect blend of heart, heat and humor and at times is quite emotional. The chemistry between Rick and Desiree is intense, yet believe-able. Although this story has an insta-love feel to it, its well paced and flows really well.
I thoroughly enjoyed Rick and Desiree's story and look forward to Bayside Passions, in the Bayside Summers series, which features Dean and Emery. I recommend Bayside Desires to anyone who enjoys an insta-love story, a small town romance, or contemporary romance.
