Cape Cod Kisses by Bella Andre & Melissa Foster Blog Tour

When Quinn Rockwell left Rockwell Island a decade ago to build a shipping empire, he never thought he’d return to live on Cape Cod Bay—that is, until his grandfather summons Quinn and his four siblings to take over the prestigious Rockwell Resort. Quinn is already working fifteen-hour days, and the last thing he has time for is his grandfather’s demands. But on his first night back, when Quinn finds a gorgeous and carefree woman skinny-dipping in his favorite cove, he’s tempted to ignore his work for a while…and focus on her instead.

As a free spirit who follows her heart and her dreams, Shelley Walters is not the kind of girl to wait around for Mr. Right, so she heads to Rockwell Island for the honeymoon of her dreams—a solo honeymoon. Ready for a week of sun and fun, she never expected to meet a man like Quinn Rockwell.

Wealthy and intensely driven, Quinn is everything Shelley swore she didn’t want. Refreshingly spontaneous and a true romantic, Shelley is everything Quinn never knew he needed. Drawn together despite their differences, during a week of sizzling-hot passion and deep conversations, they fall head over heels for each other. But when their perfect week on the island is over, will their love survive in the real world?

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
The Players: Rochelle "Shelley" Walters, only child and heir to the Walter's Enterprises diamond fortune. Quinn Rockwell, grandson of the great Chandler Rockwell, owner of the Rockwell Island and Resort.

The Story: Shelley Walters has decided that instead of waiting for Mr. Right to come along, she's going to take herself on a "solo honeymoon." She's booked a week at the Rockwell Resort on Cape Cod in the honeymoon cottage in order to rest, relax and have some fun. Shelley is a free-spirit, to the bane of her parents.

Quinn Rockwell is only back on the island as a result of a direct order from his grandfather. He doesn't really have to be here, his company is trying to merge with another and he feels guilty for leaving his partner holding the bag.

When Shelley and Quinn meet under the moonlight, sparks fly. Quinn can't wait to spend more time with her and thinks she feels the same, until she realizes he's a Rockwell. Quinn discovers that Shelley has issues with workaholics -- she was raised by a couple and knows first-hand how family, especially children, come second to the work.

Quinn finds himself falling for Shelley, but given his penchant for 80 plus hours a week, he's not sure he can give her the attention she needs and deserves.

Plot: Two people meet and fall for each other, and Quinn must decide what's really important to him: his business or Shelley. Shelley knows that she's a free spirit and often makes decisions on the spur of the moment. The island feels like home and she wants to make it her home and hopefully Quinn will be with her.

Part of a Series: Love on Rockwell Island

As a fan of both these authors, I was sure that this would be a wonderful read, and I was right! That it is the first of a series is a huge bonus, as it makes the setting and the characters even more important, as they will no doubt feature again. Indeed in my experience, both writers keep their loyal readers happy by giving regular updates on previous series romances.

This is a very romantic read; for all that Quinn is a workaholic, meeting Shelley manages to knock him sideways. The twists and turns as they come to terms with their expectations and their backgrounds are so vividly depicted that it is difficult not to pitch in with an opinion! There are plenty of side characters to get to know in anticipation of future books too.

I would say that this is perfect holiday reading; escapism at its best.
