Love on Rockwell Island #2
Bella Andre & Melissa Foster
Released Sept 30th, 2015
Bayside Books

Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, co-ownership of the Rockwell Resort, and a big, loving family. And yet his failed marriage to Reese Nicholson has haunted him for ten long years. Now that he has moved back to Cape Cod Bay to help run his family’s resort, he is surrounded by memories of Reese…and he can’t stop longing for the woman he’d always believed was his one true love.…

At nineteen, artist Reese Nicholson was swept off her feet by the handsome, charming, and incredibly sensual Trent Rockwell. After a whirlwind courtship, they married and moved to New York City, where they hoped all of their personal and professional dreams would come true. But six months later, Reese returned to Rockwell Island brokenhearted and disillusioned.

For a decade, Trent and Reese carefully kept their distance. But all it takes is one accidental late-night encounter to immediately stir the desires they have both tried to bury deep. Powerless to resist the heat between them, every passionate kiss, loving caress, and heartfelt apology draws them closer together. So close that they can’t help but wonder if the promises they once made to love each other forever are still true…

Trent fell in love in love with Reese when she was 19years old. They dated, married and moved to NYC so Trent could practice law and Reese could get her paintings into art galleries but after 6 months Reese returns to the island and the marriage is over.

Although these two loved one another they had issues in their marriage. After 10 long years of being divorced Trent is back on the island to stay and he is looking for another chance to be with Reese.

I really liked how Andre and Foster wrote this book. It went from the characters wanting to clear the air to them trying to give love another try. I liked how their whole relationship was based on communication and realized they both didn't have that 10 years ago. You can see how much they grew and wanted to talk things through this time.

Andre and Foster did an excellent job on writing each and every character. After reading this book you get the feel of two more couples that might just be in the making.

I loved how their relationship went slow and they worked into the whole lets get married again. It didn't feel rushed but it was liked they picked up where they left 10 years ago.

The one thing I would have loved to see added in this book was more of a conflict or maybe a little drama. Once they got together again it was pretty much smooth sailing.

Overall I enjoyed this read. If you love couples who get second chances at a HEA then this is the book for you.

CAPE COD PROMISES (Love on Rockwell Island)
by Bella Andre & Melissa Foster, copyright 2015 ~

Oh Lord. She’d forgotten how deep and sexy his voice was and how when he said her name, it vibrated all the way through her.

Even after all these years, he still had the ability to turn her inside out.

As he picked up the driftwood on which she’d painted a scene for Shelley and drew his dark brows together as he studied it, Reese couldn’t resist making a quick visual inspection of her own. The line of his jaw had sharpened over the years, and the peppering of dark whiskers gave him an edgier feel than the suit-and-tie Trent she’d remembered from their life in New York.

Did he still have to be so darn good-looking? So gorgeous that her pulse didn’t have a chance of staying steady when he was this near to her.
