Tasty Book Tours Review + Giveaway: Cape Cod Promises by Bella Andre & Melissa Foster

Cape Cod Promises
Rockwell Island # 1
By: Bella Andre and Melissa Foster
Releasing September 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…

My Thoughts:
Overall, I liked Cape Cod Promises. It was a pretty good story about second chances. However, those second chances could have been avoided if they had communicated better. I know that is worded weirdly, but had Reese and Trent been more open and honest when they were first married they might have avoided being divorce. As I read the story, I saw that maybe it was a good thing they were divorce and grew up some more. They both need to grow and mature, and the second chance love story fitted them. 

I loved Trent, because he was willing to take all the blame for the failed marriage. Which he shouldn't have to, because marriage is a partnership that both need to work together. With that said, I did struggle with Reese, because she wasn't willing to let go of the past and her hurt. For a while, I think she felt like the victim in the relationship. However, she started to reflect more and with hindsight she also realize she was also to blame. It was cute to see these two trying to take the blame for the failed marriage. I adore that they realized that needed to communicate in order to work. 

I enjoyed this story, because it showed that love isn't always enough without communications. You can have a love that is so strong and deeply, but without communication it doesn't work so well. No matter how much love is in the air, we are all human. This is the reason I enjoyed the story. If you are a person who loves second chance love stories, Cape Cod Promises is full of promise of reunion and personal growth between the characters.

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.
