CAPE COD PROMISES
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…

Review-Banner
A second-chance romance (yay!) with likable characters, Cape Cod Promises worked well as a standalone even though it’s second in the series. (If you’ve read one, though, I imagine you’ll enjoy seeing its hero and heroine appear–briefly–in this one.)

Promises is pleasantly sweet, but is oddly devoid of tension for a 300 page book. Their only real relationship “black moment” takes place before the book even begins. The hero and heroine were married for about six months ten years earlier and got divorced, mainly due to a lack of communication and being a bit too young to really try to make their marriage work.

Fast forward a decade, and now that Trent’s back on the island and (literally) starts running into Reese again, their getting back together is pretty much a given. They make up for their lack of conversation the first time around by talking about their relationship now…and talking about it…and talking some more. Then they ponder it internally. Then they have lots of sex in interesting places (it’s kind of their “thing”.)

But there really isn’t any point in the book where you’re worried that their relationship might not make it…for 300 pages. So it’s a pleasant read, but doesn’t go much further than that.

Rating: 3 1/2 stars / C+

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.
