Sweet Escape at Bayside is the fourth novel in the Sweet with Heat Bayside series by Addison Cole, the sweet alter-ego of Melissa Foster, known for steamy romance novels. This is Violet’s story and you’ll learn more about what makes this fierce woman tick.
Violet’s character is a balance between feisty and fierce. Similar to the yin and yang, there are two drastically different aspects of Violet’s personality and she tends to keep them comparatenalized in separate worlds. On the one hand she’s a feisty individual who values her independence yet on the other hand she fiercely protects her sister Desiree from any potential harm and has a vast list of things she does out of the goodness of her heart that has nothing to do with wanting recognition. A heart of gold is kept wrapped up tight under her rock-hard demeanor and she’s only shared that part of her life with a select few individuals. ‘She was tough as nails and soft as silk’ and there’s certainly more to this tough biker chick than meets the eye.
Our past experiences with love – or lack thereof – can strongly affect the way we approach loving relationships later in life and that shows in Violet’s internal battle when she tries to figure out what her next steps will be. This free-spirited gypsy may have spent her life wandering the world trying to find a place where she belongs but it takes a strong dose of perspective for her to realize that sometimes home is about safety and love rather than about a physical place. Does she find her home in this book and with these people? I’m happy to tell you that she does and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her journey on the road to merging her two worlds into one filled with love, laughter and perhaps a happily ever after.
As always, I’m looking forward to the next book!
My Rating: 5 /5 Stars
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 romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.
Hold on to your hat for Violet’s fun, flirty, and romantic 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.
