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?
Carefree and spirited Shelley Walters is not the woman who sits around waiting for that perfect man. She takes on life as she wants, enjoys and soaks in the wonders around her, which includes one very fun trip up to Rockwell Island for a honeymoon- alone. She’s ready for some fun and plans to enjoy whatever she can but ends up with more than she’d planned, and it’s everything Shelly swore she didn’t want in her life.
Quinn Rockwell works hard and long hours, actaully it’s all he ever does. Quinn knows nothing day to day unless it’s business. As a workaholic, he puts in more hours than he should, his focus and drive his engery for work. With an unexpected ultimatum dropped by his Grandfather about the family business falls into his hands Quinn heads up to Cape Cod Bay to deal with the family Resort. All he sees is work doubling, longer hours and more to do, but that all comes to a halt when he crosses paths with Shelly. Perhaps there was something more than work in his future after all.
Differences are obvious between Shelly and Quinn but that’s nothing compared to the chemistry that neither can ignore. Neither of them expected to find passion in the Bay, but that’s just what they find. For the first time in Quinn’s life he’s questioning everything and finding out just how much he needed this week with Shelly. She shows him more than he expects , passion, fun, and possibly something he never thought he’d deserve. Love. Will the passion and connection they found together work outside into their real lives or will it stay tucked into the cove they found each other in? You’ll have to read Cape Cod Kisses to find out!
I loved this book, really loved it. Great easy read, it was so nice to see Quinn open up, come into his own. He has everything, literally has it all, but you also see what he’s denied himself through his work. Shelly brings it all out of Quinn, not that she has everything but Shelly is so spirited and more easy going that she can has given him that chance to stop, open up and enjoy more that’s around him. It was such a enjoyable read, loved the friendship, enjoy how it grew throughout the story. Foster and Andre are one powerful duo I would love to see team up again to write. They did a fantastic job with Cape Cod Kisses, it’s a must in your summer library this year.
