Cape Cod Promises by Bella Andre and Melissa Foster Review

Cape Cod Promises
Love on Rockwell Island # 2
By: Bella Andre and Melissa Foster
Releasing 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…

This is a story of a second chance at love with the one person that completes you, but I will give you fair warning! This book will reduce you to tears and fill you with hope and Love.
So we are back on Cape Cod with the Rockwell family, but in this story we focus on Trent Rockwell; the oldest of Chandler Rockwell’s grandchildren and the one who has several labels attributed to him: Hardworking, Career minded, focused, successful, Lawyer. But he has a label that is painful…divorced. Ten years ago he married the women of his dreams Reese Nicholson, who was an island girl. They loved each other with their whole selves, true soulmates, but it all fell apart 6 months later after they moved to New York City. Trent was very focused on becoming the best lawyer he could be, but at the cost of his marriage. But now he was back on the island for good and Trent wants to try again…but is Reese willing?
10 years ago a 19 year old Reese Nicolson left the only man she ever loved, after he all but abandoned her in NYC to fast track his law career, it was the hardest thing she ever done and she has never fully recovered from it. But now Trent is back on the island and wants her back and all of her love and fears have resurfaced, does she dare let Trent back into her life?
This book moved me like no other love story ever has! Mainly because I am not a huge fan of second chance love stories, but honestly this book will knock your socks off! The writing is simply divine, the plot; creatively thought out and the characters feel like your friends. The one surprise for me was Chandler Rockwell and his sudden change in character, blew me away and he wormed his way into my heart a little.
This book literally had me in tears so many times, but I couldn’t put it down! So I give Cape Code Promises 10 out of 10, even though it deserves so much more!

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.
