Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned—even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

Is there anything cuter than a friend to lovers story?  You all know it's one of my favorite tropes.  Bayside Heat features one of the cutest couples I have read abour in a while.  Drake and Serena have been best buds for years.  They have also each harbored a secret attraction for the other, but never acted on it.  When Serena accepts a job in Boston, Drake finally realizes he needs to step up or lose the most important thing in his life.  But how can he do that without holding her back from her dream job?

I really enjoyed this one.  I loved the friendship between Drake and Serena.  They know each other inside and out and it made their relationship all that much more intimate.  I loved that Drake did everything he could to make sure Serena was able to leave and see if her dream job was what she wanted.  He didn't want to hold her back.  The other thing I loved about the book was the characters and their close friendships.  Violet being my favorite.  She was hilarious.  I think her book may be next.  

I did kind of have to laugh  at the way everyone was making a big deal out of a 90 minute commute between Boston and the Cape.  I work in Boston and that is my commute most days one way.  So, I guess to me that didn't seem like a huge obstacle for their relationship.  Especially since Drake's job was more flexible. 

I definitely recommend this one.  It's cute, funny, sexy and a well written book.  It's out today, so check it out!
