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. And of course, you'll see cameos from the Seaside Summers characters!

" With her wonderful characters and resonating emotions, Melissa Foster is a must-read author!" -NYT Bestseller Julie Kenner 

"Melissa Foster is synonymous with sexy, swoony, heartfelt romance!" -NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely 

When Emery Andrews's best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who's as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.

After months of sharing their lives, and their secrets, over video chats and phone calls, Dean's ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he'll have to bide his time.

When Emery finds a naked man in her kitchen the first morning she's there, Dean doesn't hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now Emery will see what's right before her eyes--although that guy she's got a date with might be a problem.

  • Dean and Emery- A Wonderful Love Story

    By JanisLB
    Dean & Emery how can you not fall in love with this adorable couple. The book takes place in Wellfleet, Mass. One of my favorite places on earth. Melissa writes about this town, which personally, that is near and dear to my heart. Dean had fallen for Emery the first time they met at a friends engagement party. The spoke on the phone every night since Emery lived in Virginia and Dean lived in Wellfleet. They knew EVERYTHING about each other. It was a slow developing relationship. Only problem, Dean was falling in love with Emery and would do anything he can to get her once she settled in Wellfleet. Emery did not see this coming though she loved spending time with Dean. She was worried that if they dated and it didn’t work out she would lose her best friend. I loved how the book built on their relationship. The struggles that Dean had watching her date other guys. Dean was so focused on Emery and helping her make a name for herself with her back yoga program that she would not want to leave Wellfleet once she was settled in. I loved how Dean created a garden with Emery in mind. I LOVED how they had their HEA!! Can you tell I loved the book? Read it for yourself, I’m sure you will love it just as much!!!
  • Wonderful friends to lovers story!

    By KindleKat64
    Wow! I love this book so much!! This is a such a sweet love story. Just when I think Melissa Foster can’t possibly come up with a hunkier, sexier, sweeter hero, she somehow does. And the cover of this book, this is Dean all the way!! Dean Masters is a beautiful man inside and out and Emery Andrews has friend zoned him. They have spent months getting to know each other from a distance until Emery moves to Wellfleet. Now they have to face their growing feelings head on but can they get past Emery’s hesitation to move out of the friend zone despite how she feels about Dean? This story is full of fun, hotness, laughs, sexiness, romance and best of all heart. A lot of heart. I loved everything about this story and this couple! This new group in Bayside is so special!!! Can’t wait for more! This is a must read for romance fans! I wish I had more stars to give!
  • Absolutely the best friends to lovers book EVER

    By Torinolvr
    Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the friends to more story line. Dean is a man of many talents, and Emory is...well Emory.. she loses things all the time, is a scatterbrain, but Dean grounds her, with his love. Love where they find all od Emory's "lost" items, and how they became missing in the first place. This is a must read for sure. Thank you Melissa, great book once again.
  • Written with heart!

    By Grinandstampit
    This book is aptly named. It is filled with passion and was hard to put down. Dean met Emery when she visited Bayside for her friend Desiree’s engagement to Dean’s business partner Rick. After they met they stayed in contact via video chats and texting. Emery is now moving to Bayside and ends up staying with Dean. He is a hunk with a heart who helps Emery settle in. He is also sensitive to her fear of dating a friend based on her past experiences. The sparks fly and the passion sizzles as they explore a relationship. Melissa Foster describes the most sensitive yet strong alpha male characters with strong female counterparts and puts them in most creative situations. This book is all heart. Highly recommended.
  • Amazing love story!

    By Amy L momma
    What a truly amazing love story! Emery and Dean are a match made in heaven! Emery and Dean build a strong friendship from afar after one meeting. They talk for hours every night before she moves to the Bay. Dean has waited to make his move. He just needs to convince her that she can’t ruin what they have built. He truly spent the time to learn her inside and out and to learn everything about her to be with her and understand her. And the epilogue... swoon worthy!
  • LD to BFF to ?

    By Helene Taibleson
    Emery Andrews needs a fresh start. Impulsively, she moves to Bayside to be close to her best friend, Desiree. Dean Masters has become Emery’s new BFF, but he wants more. Emery has a BFF rule. So we’re taken on a long distance relationship to a BFF to something more. How do they get there? You’ll have to read the book. Melissa Foster is the master of putting every ounce of emotion and feeling. I have never been let down by any of her story and this one continues her streak.
