Cape Cod Promises - Bella Andre & Melissa Foster

Description:
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 broken-hearted 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:
I was new to this series so came in to Cape Cod Promises with a clean sheet and no knowledge of any of the characters. Central to this novel are Trent and Reese, divorcees of ten years. Having met, married, and divorced in a whirlwind six months while Reece was still 19.

Now they have both grown older and wiser, and Trent is back from New York to work with his family in their resort and the couple realise they are still in love.

This was a very easy book to read, the story flowed between the narration of Trent and Reece and it was fun watching their rediscovered love develop.

This isn’t a novel which lit a fire under me and I wasn’t gripped by a need to read as I can be sometimes, but the writing was easy to follow and this was a gentle and upbeat read.
