Bayside Escape by Melissa Foster Blog Tour

Hold on to your hat for Violet's wildly hot love story! Lizza is up to her old tricks again, and Violet is in for the surprise of a lifetime!

Two years ago Violet Vancroft was a nomadic artist who never wanted to put down roots and Andre Shaw was a prominent Boston physician whose roots ran too deep to unearth. Their love didn't stand a chance-or at least that's what Violet believed when she received a plea for help from the sister she'd never really known-so she snuck away like a thief in the night.

Now Andre travels the world setting up new medical clinics, and Violet has finally found the family she'd always craved and the roots she'd never known she wanted. When their paths cross unexpectedly, it's not the reunion either one imagined. But they've never stopped loving each other, and after the dust of anger and hurt settles, passion ignites even hotter than before. As the end to Andre's time at the Cape nears, reality sets in, leaving them no closer to a future than they were before. Violet and Andre are forced to dig deep to discover if they're destined to live apart forever or if true love really can conquer all.

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.

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F Second Chance Romance

This is the fourth book in this series and while they can be read as a standalone, I highly suggest that you read them in order, as several characters makes repeat appearances. Also, it will help you understand Violet on a deeper level.

Violet is the snarky, tells it as it is, sometimes inappropriate friend that everyone loves. Despite her upbringing, Violet's heart is pure and so giving. I loved this book because you were able to see a side of Violet that you normally don't get to see. She had so much going on and despite knowing that she now had a place called home, real friends and an amazing relationship with her sister, Violet still compartmentalized her life. Still reeling from a broken heart, she knows that finding a group of people who don't know about her crazy history is comforting.

Andre is almost ready to try and get over his "Daisy." When he agrees to go to the coast with a friend, what he doesn't expect is to see Violet, in the flesh. He's thrown for a loop and his reaction is less than stellar. However, he has never stopped loving and missing "Daisy" and when we learn exactly who Daisy is to him, everything falls into place. Despite his feeling like Violet left him without warning, he tries to understand the situation from her perspective. He still loves her without reservation and because of that love, he realizes what their lives and their love could become.

I loved watching these two reconnect. It was real and heartbreaking, but it also gave the book a lot of hope. I really enjoyed watching their worlds come together and to see the softer side of Violet. I think that all of the characters were really well developed, and it was great to see Violet and her sister connect on a different level too. I do wish that we were given more of a story on their mom. It seems like she's there and gone and all she does is make things worse. I want them to really get down and dig in with their mom one of these books, because it seems like they would benefit from it.

This is the fourth book in the series – I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, as this one pulls together many previous strands and finally gives us the insight into Violet's past as well as great hope for her future! I am assuming that you are up to date in my review.

Desiree and Violet's mother, Lizza, makes an appearance at Desiree's wedding and brings a most unexpected guest, Violet's one true love, Andre. As we learn why she left him, how he has changed, and that maybe, Lizza was interfering for all the right reasons, the most lovely romance unfolds. And Violet too, much like a flower, unfurls and allows herself to believe that she will not be abandoned, and can share her life with all her friends.

I loved how she immediately recognised that Andre should share in all her worlds, and finally became confident enough to see how much she mattered to others. There were some really intense moments when she came clean to her friends and she definitely needed Andre and her buddy Justin to lend her support.

Another totally wonderful and engrossing read; thank you, Melissa Foster for never letting me down!

4.5 stars

This is the fourth book in the series and should be read in order so you don't miss anything with this group of friends. This is Violet and Andre's story and I think it might be my favorite so far.

Violet is Desiree's sister and she is kinda standoffish, she takes off and doesn't tell anyone where she is going. Keeps things to herself, doesn't dress like a girlie girl, and rides a bike. So when their mother Lizza shows up at Desiree and Rick's wedding with a much younger man, Violet can't believe her eyes.

The only man she ever loved and the one she left behind. With her emotions all over the place, she doesn't want to let her friends know that there is a past with her and Andre. But the air sizzles between them.

Andre has tried for years to forget his one true love, but nothing has worked. So taking a trip with the carefree woman he met, to the Cape might help. But when he sees her daughter, it turns out to be Violet, the women in his heart. Andre wants to rekindle the relationship with Violet, but he knows he can't rush things because she might run again. He is hurt when he learns she has been at the Cape for the last three years, putting down roots without him.

Can Violet and Andre make a relationship work a second time around? Will she be able to explain why she left in the first place? What will happen when she tells Desiree about her other life and what she has been doing? Will she be able to let her two worlds collide? Will Andre be able to leave without her if that is what she chooses?

This story was great, and the pain and heartache Violet felt seemed to come right off my Kindle. I just wanted to hug her and tell her to trust her love for Andre and go for it.

Melissa Foster has a way of telling a story that will bring you right in with this group of friends as if you are there with them. You will laugh and cry with them and in the end, I hope you love this story as much as I did.
