About Cape Cod Kisses: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?

I walked into this book already knowing I was a huge Bella Andre fan, having read her Sullivans series. I had high expectations seeing her name on the cover. With Melissa Foster, I have not had the pleasure of reading any of her back list, but knowing she was a friend of Ms. Andre's and added to it they are writing this series together, it made me confident in my choice in picking up this book. I am so thrilled I gave this series a shot because it did not disappoint. It is EXACTLY what I needed at this point in the year. Something light and refreshing, but enough of a story that I can still invest in the characters and root for them to get their HEA.
Most of us can experience having someone in our lives who is overbearing, and truly believes they know what is best in OUR lives, even if they fail to account what our actual hopes, dreams and desires in life. Shelley has her parents and Quinn has his grandfather. She contemplates expanding her gourmet coffee shop to the Rockwell Island and Quinn is being forced to relocate back to the Rockwell Island he grew up on to run the Rockwell Resort he never wanted to do, because his grandfather's will dictates he must. Their paths continue to cross and as they ponder their future, they must decide how THEY want their future to play and whether they are brave enough to claim their happily ever after.
This series is PERFECT for summer--whether you are curled up on your own beach vacation, lake retreat or in the comfort of your own home.
