My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Cape Cod Promises is book #2 of the Love On Rockwell Island series and is written jointly by Melisa Foster and Bella Andre. Set on a island off the East Coast of America this is the tale of Trent Rockwell and Reese Nicholson.
Ten years ago the pair were married, but the love they had on Rockwell island lost its way when they moved to New York for Trent’s demanding work as a lawyer. Long working days and weeks, left nineteen year old Reese frightened and lone in New York. Just six months into the marriage, she left him and returned to Rockwell to lick her wounds.
A decade is a long time to get over the hurt and Reese has now made a life for herself with her art. Trent’s’ Grandfather, Chandler Rockwell has insisted that his grandson’s return to the island and run the Rockwell resort for a year. No-one can refuse Chandler.
Trent at last finds peace on the island and his thoughts draw more and more to Reese. When they literally bump into one another the sparks and the flames of passion are still there. Shocked by her response to Trent Reese finds it unlocks her artistic flare and the walls she build to protect her heart come crumbling down.

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…
