Overview

Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends!

Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Dreams. The stories and characters remain the same, and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In DREAMING at SEASIDE...

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for--or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son--even Bella?

This is Bella's story. Up until now, she's had her life together. Now she's trying to decide if her life is still in Connecticut or if she wants to make Wellfleet her permanent home. Meeting Caden doesn't make her decision any easier, but she's determined to not let a guy influence her life choices. In fact, she doesn't want a serious relationship at all. As a reader, it's hard not to fall for Caden and his son. Caden gives off this safe yet smoldery vibe that can make a girl weak in the knees. So... Caden + Life on the beach = a no brainer to me, but it's probably a good idea that Bella chooses to weigh all her options. What will she decide? Better read to find out. *wink* This is such a fun series so far, and it's perfect to get you in the Summer mood. I just want to lay on a beach somewhere and read these books all day. Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

What is there not to love about this book? Nothing! Bella & Caden are a fantastic couple who are absolutely the perfect complement to each other. Their story has all of the pieces and parts that make for a great romance. Addison Cole knows how to write a sweet story with all the intensity, heat and passion but minus the descriptive sex in case that's not your thing. It is most definitely still a sexy read though. Bella is a strong, funny wonderful heroine and Caden is just, well, Caden. He is a sweet, strong, alpha, protective policeman and a great dad to his 15 year old son Evan who he has raised himself. Bella's friends who we met in Read, Write, Love at Seaside, are back and of course are up to some of their fun antics as usual. I love this group of people so much and can't wait to watch each one of them find their HEA. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! This is a fantastic and sweet series

4.5 stars This Sweet with Heat series is a fun summer read. I enjoyed this one even more than Book 1. I felt the characters were a little more developed. Probably helped that I already knew most of them from Book 1. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. If you are looking for quick summer reads with some sweet heat and funny, engaging characters - check this series out!

Have you ever read a book that is part of a series and wonder what will happen to the secondary characters? That is what happen when I read Read, Write, Love. I wanted to know if the rest of the Seaside Girls would find their happy endings just like Leanna did with Kurt. Dreaming at Seaside is Bella’s story. Well, Bella and Caden’s story. Wild, crazy, trickster Bella is swearing off relationships until she gets her life in order. Then one night of being found outside by new local police officer Caden Grant brings sparks to her life. Even swearing off relationships cannot detour the feelings that are between her and Caden. My favorite part is how Caden is just accepted into the folds of the Seaside girls. Instantly Caden is included in their plans, welcome into their lives, and expected to put up with the shenanigans these ladies led by Bella pull. I loved how with every thought Evan, Caden’s son, is included into Bella’s world. She includes him in their date times, their quiet times, and their fun times. Not every woman would be welcome to a teenage boy coming into her life and not only does she accept Evan but she loves him and wants him in her life. Addison Cole has written a fun, sexy, sweet, and a tad of heat story that cannot be put down. I recommend picking up your own copy asap and reading this entire series. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own

I read Read, Write, Love by Addison Cole which is the first book in this series and absolutely loved it. So when I came across the opportunity to read Dreaming at Seaside, I could not resist. I met the four besties- Leanna, Bella, Jenna and Amy in the first book and fell in love with them. Each is as different from the other as night from day but still they are tied together with bonds of love, friendship and loyalty towards each other. After Leanna's happily-ever-after, I was eager to read the stories of the other three Summer girls and in this book, I got to delve into Bella's story. Bella is spunky, fiercely protective of the people she loves and a woman who combines the best of both sets of women, bold and shy, at the same time, easily. I instantly fell connected with her story and loved each second spent reading her journey to finding true love. Caden is another swoon worthy hero. I had thought no one could match Kurt from Read, Write, Love by Addison Cole but boy, was I wrong! He is a Police Officer and a hero of every woman's dreams. Everything in this book felt so real. The characters are people who felt like friends I was meeting again after a break and it was all so much fun witnessing their story progress and re-uniting with beloved characters from the previous book. Despite being part of a series, this is a standalone story so you dont need to go read the first one to understand this one though reading books part of a series in order is always the best thing to do. I laughed, cried, enjoyed the sun and sand with everyone in this book and absolutely loved the clean romance that though teases but there are no explicit intimate scenes and definitely no slang. The chemistry is intense and the emotional play heartfelt. All in all, Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole is even better than the first book and that is saying something because I wholeheartedly LOVED the first book. Definitely a must read, I give Dreaming at Seaside 5 stars and recommend it all romance lovers. Addison Cole has made a place in my list of automatic 1-click authors and I look forward to reading lots more from her in the future.

I absolutely adore my Seaside girls, and Bella is one of my favorites! Bella is home at Seaside for the summer, but this time she's changing her entire life. Freshly out of a relationship, she's made the choice to quit her job and start anew on Wellfleet. She meets Caden Grant in a very interesting situation, and has to make a tough decision about whether she'll stick with her new dating rules. Caden has chosen to move to Wellfleet with his son to stay safe after the death of his partner. Being a policeman in a small Cape town is obviously safer than the big city, but is it the best choice for his son? While Bella and Caden try to figure out their relationship, Caden is attempting to do the best for his son without losing Bella. This is an amazingly sweet romance, with some innuendo and lots of romance but without any super hot scenes. It's perfect for those who prefer a sweeter story, but will definitely be enjoyed by those who love the heat! I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

This is the second book I read by Addison Cole and I was not dissapointed. In this book we spend time with all of the amazing Seaside Girls that we met in the first book. While we do spend time with the girls, we focus on Bella and Caden. I absolutely loved these two. They are absolutely made for each other. Even though they are opposites they connect with each other easily and I loved that. I am very partial to Caden since he just moved to the cape from my hometown of Boston. This is a very sweet and romantic story that I just couldn’t put down. You will definitely enjoy this great book.

I've absolutely fallen head over heels for Addison Cole and her Sweet with Heat series. Book 1 was wonderful and book 2 has totally sealed the deal. Great friendships that will have you smiling and laughing peppered with some steamy but clean romantic moments. If you're looking for a fun summer read, this series is what you're looking for!

Dreaming at Seaside is a story that makes me wish I lived in the Seaside community. Wellfleet and the Cape sound beautiful and peaceful to live in, minus the recent break-ins featured in this story. Bella is a determined and fun-loving female. I really like that she's willing to take a big risk and change her life. I love the pranks she plays and wish there was more within the story. Her Seaside friends are the dream friend group any female may wish she has. Caden is a protective and supportive man. He's done well to move on from a tragedy at work. Caden changed his live and his son Evan's live by moving to a new town. He does so well as a single father, although he does question his parenting when Evan gets into some trouble with some new friends. The connection between all the characters in this story is what truly makes this story so good. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Again, Addison Cole has come through with a great read. I wish I had been sea side - sitting in the sand on a beach - when I read this book. Set on Cape Cod, I love reading all about these characters that either live in this area year round or return summer after summer. Bella was always the strictly business one in her group of friends. She would come for the summers and let go. This year she let go while away and is coming to work this summer so as to secure herself a full time position in the area. Who knew she would meet the newly transplanted police officer right away? Does she stop what her plans are for a man? She has worried that she did this before. She does not want to plan out her life based on someone else. She is not sure what to do with the feelings that are hitting her. Pick up this book and find out.

This "Sweet with Heat" romance is exactly that. A funny and romantic story from Addison Cole that focuses on Bella and her instant attraction to hot police officer Caden Grant, who meets her while she is in a funny and compromising position. Bella is a school teacher from Connecticut who is making major life changes that don't include a relationship. Caden is a single father with a teenage son and all of the typical teenage challenges. There are definitely sexy times between Caden and Bella but the details are left to the readers imagination. Loved this sweet romance. Kudos to Addison Cole.

Dreaming at Seaside is book 2 in the Sweet with Heat series by Addison Cole and this story is all about Bella Abbascia and hunky Cop Caden Grant Bella is the feisty joker out of the Seaside Girls and we met her in Read, Love Write at Seaside along with Leanna, Amy and Jenna. The girls have grown up with each other spending the summer at their seaside cottages and they are all really close, now the Bells’s life is taking a different turn and she has quit her school teaching job and looking to move to the cape full time, if Leanna can do it so can she right? The girls are shocked that she quit her job but supportive and they will do anything to help each other out. Bella has also sworn off men, that is until one night whilst out doing a prank on the community manager Theresa, she gets caught in Leanna's bedroom window when new cop in town Caden catches her and the girls, whilst patrolling the area. The instant sparks were there for both of them without a doubt! Caden has moved to Wellfleet with his teenage son Evan from Boston where he was cop, but after losing his best friend in the line of duty he realised how dangerous his job in the big city really was so moved to the quiet town of Wellfleet. Soon Caden and Evan have been welcomed into the Seaside group and the sparks and heat between him and Bella just sizzle. And Bella who has sworn off men is more than willing to have a relationship with Caden and what I loved most about her was how much she went out of her way to include Evan in their date plans. That says a lot her a person, and it just shows to Caden how wonderful of a person she really is. Dreaming at Seaside is definitely Sweet with just enough heat that will leave you wanting wanting more, it is a great clean read and you will not be disappointed,

Bella and Caden story is so romantic and sweet. She is an open, happy person and meets this serious cop who has a 14 year old and is a single parent. The way their romance is developed is so emotional and they are a great couple. The world of Seaside is one to read and wish you were there with these wonderful characters! I recommend to everyone!

We're back at the Seaside Cottages for another summer but it seems that something has changed. Bella has made some drastic changes in her life and she's decided to restart her life living full time in her cottage and swearing off men until she gets her life together. Well that was the plan, then Officer Caden Grant enters her life as a prank goes bad and nothing is the same. This is a wonderful sweet clean read that is full of passion, love, and life. I recommend this one.

The hardest decision for a person to face is knowing when to let go. Hearts are broken, children grow up, the people we love and admire pass on. Life happens. It's inevitable. The pain is real, but in dwelling on the bad moments means missing out on some of the best. Ms. Cole does a beautiful job of relaying that message in Dreaming at Seaside. Caden is a single father struggling with grief, guilt, loneliness and a difficult child. Bella is a woman determined to live life to the fullest. Against a beautiful backdrop and deeply moving scenarios, sparks fly, hearts get broken and difficult choices are made. However, the one thing that remains the same the lasting impact of the lessons learned.
