Book Tour: "Cape Cod Promises" by Melissa Foster and Bella Andre

Cape Cod Promises is the second book from the Love on Rockwell Island 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.

Trent Rockwell has it all—a thriving legal practice, coownership 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 Review:
I have been anxiously awaiting the opportunity to return to Rockwell Island since I read Cape Cod Kisses, and FINALLY, Cape Cod Promises is here. Cape Cod Promises is the story of Trent and Reese, former husband and wife who lost their way early in their marriage. Reese had returned to Rockwell Island as soon as they divorced - it took Trent's grandfather and his edict to return that forced Trent to return. Or so we believe.

What's interesting about this book is that we didn't have to watch them fall in love - it was pretty obvious from the beginning of this book that they both still loved each other. What we see in this book is Reese and Trent navigating the path of how to STAY in love and how to stay TOGETHER. This book could almost be a primer in how to develop good communication skills with your significant other, because we see Reese and Trent constantly struggle with the right way, and the right times to communicate with each other as they rediscover each other.

Trent and Reese both admit to fostering their feelings of love for each other, even while they were apart. They also go through a journey of self-discovery, each realizing areas where they could have done something differently in their marriage, and also seeing themselves NOW and what they need to do in order to ensure a successful relationship. I think the most insightful thing they realized is that what they've learned in their time apart is equally important to the success of their relationship moving forward as learning from their mistakes the first time around. They both realized they probably weren't in the right places in their lives, and with themselves, to make their relationship a success the first time, but their individual maturity helps them know how to be successful this time.

Reese's biggest struggle is her need to separate their intense chemistry from her hurt feelings. The chemistry has been bubbling just below the surface all these years and explodes as they reconnect - Trent and Reese literally cannot keep their hands off themselves. This book could also be a primer in "how to find an out of the way place to make love with your significant other", because they certainly did.

The authors have also teased us with potential relationships with the remaining Rockwell siblings and I look forward to watching each of them develop as we come back to Rockwell Island over and over again!

Love on Rockwell Island Book 1, 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?
