NEW SERIES RELEASE....
Love on Rockwell Island is a Brand New Contemporary Romance Series by New York Times & USA bestselling authors Bella Andre & Melissa Foster.
Fall in love on Rockwell Island...Sink your toes into the sandy beaches at the heart of Cape Cod Bay, where family comes first, good friends are around every corner, and true love is waiting beneath the stars.
When Quinn Rockwell left Rockwell Island a decade ago to build a shipping empire, he never thought he’d return to live on Cape Cod Bay—that is, until his grandfather summons Quinn and his four siblings to take over the prestigious Rockwell Resort. Quinn is already working fifteen-hour days, and the last thing he has time for is his grandfather’s demands. But on his first night back, when Quinn finds a gorgeous and carefree woman skinny-dipping in his favorite cove, he’s tempted to ignore his work for a while...and focus on her instead.
As a free spirit who follows her heart and her dreams, Shelley Walters is not the kind of girl to wait around for Mr. Right, so she heads to Rockwell Island for the honeymoon of her dreams—a solo honeymoon. Ready for a week of sun and fun, she never expected to meet a man like Quinn Rockwell.
Wealthy and intensely driven, Quinn is everything Shelley swore she didn’t want. Refreshingly spontaneous and a true romantic, Shelley is everything Quinn never knew he needed. Drawn together despite their differences, during a week of sizzling-hot passion and deep conversations, they fall head over heels for each other. But when their perfect week on the island is over, will their love survive in the real world?

If you read my reviews at all... you know that Melissa Foster is a favorite. I was a little nervous when I saw that she was partnered for a series with someone who's books I was unfamiliar with. (Sometimes messing with a good thing is a bad thing!) Thank goodness Cape Cod Kisses stayed true to the Foster books I always love.
Cape Cod Kisses easily fits with Melissa Foster's other series books. It felt like a mix of the family feel that you get with The Braden or Remington books... but mixed with the beach & vacation friends feel of the Seaside Summers series. I want to be like Shelley and just pick up and move to a place like Rockwell Island. It sounds like pure perfection to me.
Since this was the first book in the Love on Rockwell Island, there were a lot of people to meet (and fall in love with). Of course it focused on Quinn and Shelley... but we also met the rest of the Rockwell siblings (and you can easily see where the next books will be able to go by following the siblings (very much like the Bradens). The 4 brothers and sister are very different... but all so devoted to each other and their parents. I was just so easily drawn in and felt so at home with their family. It was easy to understand how Shelley fell in love with not only Quinn... but his family as well.
