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, and easy to relate to.
In USA Today bestseller BAYSIDE FANTASIES...Tegan Fine has never had a plan—life, business, or otherwise. But she’s always had goals—to laugh daily and to pay it forward as often as she is able, just like her favorite uncle always did. After inheriting her great-uncle’s amphitheater, Tegan makes a risky move to a charming small town on Cape Cod to carry on her uncle’s legacy and hopefully expand the business with her new friend, Harper. Unfortunately, those goals aren’t doing much to help her plan a business strategy for her new endeavor. With Harper counting on her and her uncle’s legacy at stake, she swears off all distractions, determined to succeed. If only she could stop bumping into a certain arrogant, witty, and excruciatingly hot businessman who tweaks her nerves and invades her every thought. Including her late-night fantasies.
Self-professed workaholic Jett Masters never slows down. He lives life with no attachments—except to his clients, to whom he gives his all. A reluctant trip to his hometown has him itching to shake the ghosts of his past and get back to spinning deals and adding to his investments. But when he comes face-to-face with a gorgeous, handsy woman who is quite possibly the snarkiest and most disorganized person he’s ever met, sparks fly, and his sharp mind stumbles. He doesn’t even know her name, but he can’t get her out of his mind.
A chance encounter turns into a wild, sexy night, and their chemistry is off the charts—even if their ideals, and their lives, are worlds apart. Neither Jett nor Tegan is looking for more. Becoming friends with benefits seems like the perfect solution. But when they are trapped together in torrential weather, they work side by side in the aftermath, and every passionate kiss deepens their connection. Secrets are shared, trust is built, and no promises dare be made. As their lives move on, lines begin to blur, hearts get hurt, and their true selves come into focus. Tegan and Jett are left wondering if they make the perfect storm, or if they’ve reached the end of their bayside fantasy.
Bayside Fantasies is the sixth book in the Bayside Summer series and can be read as a standalone. It tells the story of Teagan Fine and Jett Masters. Readers following the series would have met Teagan in Bayside Romance. Teagan is mourning the loss of her great uncle, who played a pivotal role in her life. Being the principal beneficiary of his estate, she returned to the Cape to continue his legacy.
Jett used to live on the Cape, however his estrangement from his father led to his visits home being far and few and even those are rife with tension. Jett was the consummate workaholic. He had no life outside of work. Not only was he intense, he was hot, sexy and smart. The more readers learn about him, the more they would understand the reasoning behind his actions.
Teagan was the complete opposite of Jett. They were the epitome of the adage, ‘opposites attract’. She was carefree, family oriented and a firm believer in ‘Paying it Forward’. She believed, like her great uncle, that laughter was the perfect medicine.
Their initial meeting did not get off to a wonderful start, however one thing was certain their chemistry was undeniable. It sizzled and burned throughout the story. As they got to know each other, their attraction towards each other evolved into a love that was not only passionate but pure.
One can appreciate the growth demonstrated by Jett throughout the story. By the end he was no longer uptight and consumed by work. He learnt how to enjoy life. Without a doubt Teagan brought out the best in him.
For readers who enjoy family dynamics and the camaraderie between friends, Ms. Foster did not disappoint. Bayside Fantasies was filled with both. Characters from the previous books made an appearance and aided in moving the story forward. Fans of the series will enjoy catching up with their favourite characters,
As much as this was an enjoyable read, the story was not without its issues. There were a few scenes which one may consider cheesy and over the top and there were areas where the story dragged, which may not go down well with some readers.
Bayside Romance is a story about discovering love. It highlights friendship and family. Fans of the author will enjoy this latest in the Bayside Summer series.
