“With BAYSIDE PASSIONS, Melissa Foster delivers a lighthearted, fun-filled novel that is sure to brighten up your spirits.”
~ Under the Covers

Returning to this world is always a fun time. With BAYSIDE PASSIONS, Melissa Foster delivers a lighthearted, fun-filled novel that is sure to brighten up your spirits.

This is Emery and Dean’s book and these two are seriously happier than birds in the Spring. I feel like you have to be in a really good mood to enjoy this book because the two protagonists are so full of life. If not, then you will probably feel much lighter after reading this book.

That being said, there’s A LOT of fun banter and flirting. It’s basically the entire book. While I do enjoy this, I also think that it can get a little over the top in some scenes. There were times when I wondered how it was possible for two people to be so happy, but I guess that might just be my mood. Dean and Emery get along very well, so it’s no wonder that they can chat up a storm.

In terms of conflict, there’s not much there, which is my biggest complaint about this book. It’s just a fun book, so I wouldn’t expect too much thought-provoking conflict here. As this is a friends to lovers story, you’ll get a lot of their chemistry from the very beginning.

All in all, this was an enjoyable read if a bit too upbeat for my liking. But I am looking forward to seeing where the rest of this series goes.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I have read upbeat stories when I was not upbeat. So, while this sounds cute, I’ll wait until I’m morw on their level.
