✿ Bayside Heat (Bayside Summers #3) ✿ Melissa Foster ✿

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.

Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned-even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake's roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it's all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she's finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he's never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they've both been aching to walk. But Serena's determined not to give up her shot at the career she's always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

ARC Received for an honest review
I haven't read all of the Bayside stories, however this did not affect my enjoyment of Bayside Heat, and I will be going back to read them in the future.
Bayside Heat is a beautiful story of friendship, of family, of taking the chance on love.
I wanted to clonk Drake and Serena's heads together to make them get their act together, to get one of them to make that first move.  For them to find love.
I freaking adore all of the Cape Cod "family".  I love how they all saw what Drake and Serena had been denying, and how they all kinda "pushed" our lovelies together.
Bayside Heat is a lovely look down memory lane for Drake and Serena, as they move from the friend-zone they have placed each other in over the years.  There is something to be said about being friends before diving in to a sexual kind of relationship, and you can feel the mutual love for each other.
I laughed at some of the antics from the other Bayside couples - it was great to catch up with them all again.
Sweet and tender with a lot of heat, Bayside Heat was a perfect weekend read for me.
I can't wait to see what Ms Foster bring us next.
