Book Review and Giveaway – Bayside Desires by Melissa Foster!!!

NEW RELEASE…

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.

In Bayside Desires…

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.

All Bayside books can be read as standalone novels or as part of the series:

*** Bayside Summers is part of the Love in Bloom romance collection by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books. Visit Melissa’s website for family trees, series checklists, and more.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

A definite MUST ADD for your summer reading list! This is the beginning of another amazing series from the one, the only…..THE Melissa Foster! This book has so many feels, so much steam and some amazing character development. One of the things that always gets me hooked with Melissa’s writing is that she finds a way to make the characters so personable and you tend to see a little piece of yourself in at least one of the characters. I’ve noticed this over and over with many of the Melissa Foster books I’ve read (and lets face it……I’ve read ALOT of them)! I can’t wait to devour the whole series!!!

Book Review & Giveaway! Truly, Madly, Whiskey by Melissa Foster (MUST READ!!!)

NEW RELEASE…
A new, emotionally riveting, sexy standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Watch mysteriously sexy Bear Whiskey claw his way to his happily ever after with sassy, rebellious Crystal Moon.

In TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY…
Eight months is a long damn time to have the hots for a woman who keeps a guy at arm’s length. But Crystal Moon is no ordinary woman. She’s a sinfully sexy, sass-mouthed badass, and the subject of Bear Whiskey’s midnight fantasies. She’s also one of his closest friends. Just when Crystal thinks she has her life under control, scorching-hot, possessive, aggressive,and fiercely loyal Bear pushes all her sexual buttons, relentless in his pursuit to make her his. The more Bear pushes, the hotter their passion burns, unearthing memories for Crystal that are best kept buried. But there’s no stopping the collision of her past and present, catapulting the two lovers down an emotionally charged road that has them questioning all they thought they knew about themselves.

MY REVIEW: I’ve been out of the book review game for a while but boy oh boy, was this the right one to get me back on track! Those that know me are aware of my Melissa Foster fangirl status. That being said I really can’t stand reading a book if it doesn’t pull me in. I hadn’t been reading much in the recet past and I was hoping this book would grab me…..and boy did it! 

I found it hard to put down after the first page pulled me in, with an uncanny resemblance to my own life in a few ways. I was hooked (and that’s even before Bear entered the pic)! I absolutely loved the evolution of Crystal. Watching her learn, grow and persevere over any and all obstacles made me love her and seeing her ultimate strong girl moment at the end made me love her even more! Crystal needed a strong Bear of a man to pull her out of the protective shell she’d built around herself. She neded him to help her find out which version of her was the real one……or had she even found it yet? This book is a must read! From the beautiful love story to the heartbreaking family issues that both Bear and Crystal deal with over time, this book has it all. Can Crystal overcome the past that made her continually reinvent herself or can she move on and have the life she always wanted (and the life her father most likely wanted her to have).

Six week keto update AND technological advancements!

This has been a great six weeks! We started keto on Feb 27th and I’ve lost (drumroll please)…… A meager 16 lbs while my boyfriend has lost 35lbs! We’re both dropping inches, feeling better and looking healthier and younger! 

I also (FINALLY) got a keyboard for my tablet. My computer needs new security updates and I’ve been far too lazy to get some installed/updated, which has left me dead in the blogger water. Combine that new keyboard with my newly unlimited Verizon data and now I’ll be unstoppable (as long as I’m caffeinated)!

 I’ll be getting caught up on some of our unposted adventures soon!

Keep on adventuring!

I think I can……go keto?

After much consideration we’ve gone all in. The fella and I embarked on the keto lifestyle just under 2 weeks ago. This means no grains, no sugar, limited carbs and lots of fat. I’ll be sharing this BIG adventure a lot in the coming months as it’s  already made a huge impact on our lives! Stay tuned for more in depth information, recipes and weight loss news. Between the 2 of us…..in under 2 weeks…..we’ve lost 34 lbs!


Lots of Adventures…… (and more snow than I care to acknowledge)

I love snow…a little at a time…..

There’s nothing in nature that can make everything more peaceful and beautiful than a fresh blanket of pure white snow.  This winter, however, has made me use more profane adjectives when talking about snow than I ever imagined.

I live in the part of the country that has been inundated this winter with snowstorm after snowstorm.

Up to my knees (and we still got more)

We’re at the point now that well over a hundred buildings have fallen down in surrounding communities and the  snow is all dirty and disgusting to look at.  It’s starting to melt and the flood concerns are ramping up.  Animals are looking for food and places to sleep

A little minor flooding

Now……the forecast is…..more snow.  For the love of all things sunny and 75° make it stop! Please send us warm and happy thoughts.  We really need to start getting the garden goodies prepped. I’m glad I decided on a lot of container planting this year!  I don’t expect to see a full thaw until…….July? (That’s a joke,  I hope)

Coming soon….I take my life on a low carb/keto adventure (and I have perks for my friends! )

I’ll stop procrastinating…..next weekend

It never fails that I put EVERYTHING off until Sunday (I’ve had 4 days off in a row) and then wake up feeling like poop Sunday morning. I’m going to continue telling myself it’s just a coincidence that I have multiple symptoms at once because I really don’t have time to be sick. The mom chores never go away and I have to go back to work tomorrow.  Oh lord give me strength (and a suddenly super mega immune system).

One more cup of coffee should help,  right?!

I have got to stop procrastinating so much!  (That’s a battle for another day)
