Who would have thought a free spirited, gypsy soul of a mother would know what is best for uber-organized Desiree Cleary. Raised by her father, wishing for her mother's love, Desiree always wondered if the grass was always greener on her half sister's side of the fence.
Now was the chance she would find out. Rushing to Bayside under mysterious circumstances, Mommy Dearest draws her two darling girls together under false pretenses. Little sister is going to show Desiree how to have a wild time when they discover mama doesn't just have an art gallery, but an adult store too.
This is the best time for Rick Savage to step in having already drenched Desiree with a jet ski. What results is sweet dates which lead to tender kisses and hormones raging and fires igniting, passion burning. All those hot, sexy things which Melissa Foster is great and providing her readers. What I want to know is if something happens to my husband (God forbid), will there be a Rick Savage waiting for me?
Foster has built a wonderful setting you want to be real with Bayside. As you read her books you can almost imagine meeting the Ryders, Savages and their extended friends (of whom we hope she will write) in the seasonal summer town nearest you. As always, I find myself wanting to be a part of this family, drawn in to the mix of family, friends as Rick and Desiree explore their issues and hangups as to why they shouldn't be together before they take the chance. Summer in Bayside will never be the same. Rick will continue in Washington DC and Desiree remains in Virginia, for now. Perhaps they will make the move permanently to Bayside. Afterall, with all the new little ones, a preschool teacher is going to be needed. :)

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.
