Rockwell Island # 1
By: Bella Andre and Melissa Foster
Releasing May 6th, 2015
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?

I will admit I'm not a huge fan of books that are written by two authors. I feel like the inside of my brain is playing ping pong, going from one authors voice to the other. It can make a person tired. But since I really like both authors, and I have a sickness that forces me to read my favorite authors, I didn't have a choice. Well I did, but I decided not to listen to that voice inside my head telling me not to. Damn...I'm so glad I didn't. I will tell you that both Andre & Foster did a seamless job of joining their voices in the sweet, loving story. I found the idea of going on your own honeymoon a fun thought. I really liked Shelley. Sure she had a hang up about people working to hard and at times she beat a dead horse about it, but I understood her feelings. She didn't want that kind of life. So why would she fall for Quinn. Isn't that the question we always ask ourselves as we fall for that person we thought we never would? After reading Cape Cod Kisses I know I now have a new series to read. Thanks guys! You will find this to be a wonderful story with characters you won't be able to like. This is a wonderful Mother's Day Gift! Happy reading!
