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!

Sunsets at Seaside is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a spicier romance, pick up the steamy edition, Seaside Sunsets, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa's sweet-romance pen name.

Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother--and falling in love is not in his plans.

From the moment Jamie and Jessica meet, the attraction is white-hot. Once-overly-focused Jamie can think of little else than sweet, smart, and alluring Jessica, and Jessica discovers a side of herself she never knew existed. But when Jamie's business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie's life--and his heart--upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Jessica has taken time away from her classical life to find her way in life. Throughout her journey at the Cape, Jessica has found a circle of friends that are like sisters. She has even met a potential mate in Jamie.  Jamie is a hardworking self-made businessman and is taking time off to spend time his grandmother and enjoy the summer. After being hit by Jessica's property, he is in awe of her beauty and needs to know who this beautiful stranger is.  Jessica and Jamie's romance is one that is to envy; you meet a handsome or beautiful stranger, and there is instant attraction. Addision Cole always delivers a romance that tugs on your heart strings and builds your fantasy repertoire. *An advance copy of this book was provided to me for review purposes only, all opinions expressed are my own*

Jessica is a private person who needs a break from her everyday life. She has a bit of an aversion to technology, preferring to exist in a smaller music filled world. She’s on a mission to find herself, her true self, outside of the Orchestra world. Jamie is back home for the summer with his Grandma Vera. Jamie is pretty much as opposite from Jessica as one can get. Not only does he live fully immersed in the world of technology, his livelihood depends on people using technology on a daily basis. Neither is looking for love over the summer, but that doesn’t mean love isn’t looking for them! Cole writes a sweet love story that makes me wish I could take a weekend vacation to the Cape. Friendly people, quaint shops, and a flea market! What more could I ask for on vacation?

Even though this book is part of a series, you can read it as a stand-alone novel. It is a very enjoyable romance story. The series is so well-developed that I would highly encourage readers to check it out. You’ll love how the story unfolded with Jamie and Jessica. After living such a sheltered life, Jessica went to Cape Cod for the summer to try and do some soul searching. Jamie was spending time there with his Grandmother. The two are brought together by fate. Jessica is able to find herself with Jamie’s influence. They are such a sweet pair that you can’t help but admire and love these characters. The Author has weaved romance, humour, and passion into this novel. A fabulous writing style that will keep you wanting to read more about Jessica and Jamie.

I love it when a story starts with the characters not looking for love. I have always felt that love should start with not looking for it. It's possible that I think like this because my first love and my biggest love (aka my hubby) happened with me not looking for them. Maybe that is why out of all the books in this series that I have read, this one is my favorite. In this story we meet Jessica and Jamie. Jessica plays for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is in no way looking for love at the moment. Jamie is a complete workaholic who has no time nor want love at the moment. That's why when these two meet it's hard not to notice that instant attraction. I feel that this is a sweet story that any romantic at heart will enjoy. It's going to be hard to have another favorite although I'm sure Addison Cole's books will do the trick.

My goodness! I didn't know Jaime could turn on the smolder, but boooy can he! Sweet lil Jessica didn't have a chance. I loved their chemistry and how they just seem to fit. They were sweet, and cute, and completely delicious to read about. The ARC of Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

I love Melissa Foster's book so when I saw she had an alter ego that did sweet romance, I had to give one of her books a go, because I am more a fan of sweeter romances. Sunsets is part of a series, but is definitely a standalone novel. This book is Jessica and Jamie's story, and though this isn't a hot and spicy romance. I loved the setting to this story as well as the characters. Addison creates believable strong characters that you really get attached to. Jess is a cellist and Jamie is a tech millionaire. The setting is Cape Code. That alone gets a sigh from me. The two characters are both workaholics in their own right, so they have a lot issues to get over before they can really find happiness. I absolutely adored this book!

I love this author, any name she uses, her stories are always pleasant and romantic, perfect for relaxing. Jessica and Jamie finally decide to enjoy a vacation at the same time and at the same place: she rents a cottage from a friend and he spends a few days with his grandmother who grew up him after his parents died. They just want to relax, don't want love complications but as soon as they meet it is love at first sight. Until Jamie unfairly breaks Jessica's heart. I love it is narrated from both points of view. Jessica and Jamie are so different and so perfect together. She is sweet, smart and hates technology. Jamie is strong, generous and a technology wizard. Both will be forced to face their own past. This is part of the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series. Each book can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel but for more enjoyment read the whole series. It's a clean, sweet and romantic story, quick and fast-paced, once you started it it's really hard to put it down. Perfects for readers who enjoy romance!

I am loving this Sweet with Heat series! These sweets reads are so refreshing to read after some not so sweet books. Jennifer brings the sweet to this book! While at times she seems very naive, I found it great that she was so aware of it herself and she was trying to learn and experience new things. Jamie while having more life experience was naive in some ways as well, and maybe a bit too trusting. I think it was amazing that a man his age was so determined to spend positive time with his grandmother. Jamie and Jennifer seems to fit together so well. Jennifer was really lucky that phone hit Jamie and not a different man, since most would have taken advantage of her naivety. Of course, like every great romance there has to be a few misunderstandings, and while I wasn't happy with how they handled them, they redeemed themselves quickly. I am so read for the next book in this series, bring on the Secrets! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book. #MSBB

Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole is the fourth book in her Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but despite being part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend that you read the books in order so you understand the characters better. This is Jamie Reed and Jessica Ayers' story. We met Jamie in the previous book and he came out as a kind, reliable, geeky nerd who has designed a software rivaling Google and who loves his grandmother so much that he spends his holidays with her! I had been eager to read his story and I enjoyed this book. Jessica is a professional musician and on vacation here in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. I enjoyed the encounters between Jessica and Jamie but at some places felt a bit uncomfortable too. This book claims to be a clean read and despite not having any explicit scenes, the tease and the innuendoes make this book and series not completely in the clean romance genre. I enjoyed meeting Amy, Bella, Jenna and Leanna along with their mates and several other characters from the previous books. It is always vacation season in the Seaside community and every time I read these books, I feel like I am there on vacation myself. The story is slow paced as compared to the previous books and the romance believable. I loved Jamie and Jessica and they deserve to be happy. All in all, Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole is entertaining and though not as stirring as the other books in this series, it will definitely make you feel on vacation. 4 stars out of 5 to it and recommended to romance readers. If you are looking from strictly clean and wholesome romances then this book and series is not for you.

Sunsets at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers) by Addison Cole In the fourth installment of Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers, Addison Cole brings us Sunsets at Seaside. This is the story of Jessica Ayers, a cello player with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Jamie Reed, a billionaire developer of a world renowned internet search engine. These two are both sweet people who have been looking for each other, even though they were both unaware. Jessica is a summer renter at Seaside and Jamie’s grandmother owns a home in Seaside. The first time Jamie met Jessica, she was throwing her phone out the window of her apartment and hit him on the head. Of course she wasn’t aiming for him (or anyone else) fate stepped in so that the two HAD to meet. Even though Jessica wanted to spend the summer alone with her thoughts to contemplate her next move and Jamie wanted to spend the summer enjoying the time with his grandma, love steps in and conks them both on the head, when they least expected it. But of course, no love story would be complete without a little complication. Jessica is offered the opportunity of a lifetime and Jamie’s business encounters a hiccup. Their new found love could have crumbled at the smallest bump, but in true Addison Cole form, love conquers all.

Addison Cole is a new author for me and I'm so happy that I was introduced to her books through Beck Valley Book Tours! This sweet with heat genre is exactly up my alley. I like the romance, adventure, and the storyline minus the actual sex scenes. I like the leading up and the reference that it happened but I don’t particularly enjoy reading the sex scene themselves. I thoroughly enjoyed Jamie and Jessica’s story. It was filled with interesting characters and life events. I enjoyed watching Jess grow and experience all of the things that she’d been missing out on while living a sheltered life as a professional cellist. I enjoyed watching the interactions between the friends and I loved the ending. This was a great novel and I can’t wait to read more!

Very romantic!!! This was such a cute, heart warming book. It was very romantic. But if your looking for steamy sex scenes, look somewhere else. There's no explicit sex scenes or harsh language. Not that it wasn't passionate and you didn't get wrapped up in the romance, because you really did. Jamie and Jessica were both really great characters and I really loved reading about them falling in love. There were lots of swoon worthy moments. The side characters were all awesome. I loved everyone of them!! I was excited to find out that this is the fourth book in a series called Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Series. And the other books deal with the different characters in the book!! I need to read them all!! The first book in the series is free to download on Amazon!! :) ~Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Lola's Blog Tours in exchange for my honest review.

Jessica Ayers is a world famous cellist and a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she decides to enjoy life a little and have a summer vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Jamie Reed is a millionaire and computer nerd who is having the summer with his grandmother at their cottage in Seaside. Jamie has lost his parents in a terrible accident in Africa when he was young and Vera is all he has in the world. Summer and Seaside, what a great combination! The Seaside gang is at their best in this book. The pranks, Theresa, skinny dipping and the sweet romance of Jessica and Jamie you cannot have a better reading than this. Jessica and Jamie are the sweetest couple, the way he dots for his grandmother and they share their love for music is so real. Addison Cole's Seaside Summer series books are romantic, sweet and heartful.

Hopefully you are already familiar with the Seaside Summers series, and if you are then you know about cute Jamie that stays with his grandmother Vera while vacationing in Wellfleet each summer. Jamie is brilliant, successful, loaded, and very easy on the eye. Luckily for Jamie, a talented and beautiful cellist named Jessica decides to take some time away from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and finds herself staying next door to Jamie and Vera for the summer. Between Jamie's business problems and Jessica's secrets, they are tested despite their instant chemistry. I really enjoyed Sunsets at Seaside and watched the natural progression of things between Jessica and Jamie. Jessica has led a very sheltered life spending the majority of her time playing the cello, therefore, she has missed on out on a lot of the experiences usually synonymous with adolescence and young adulthood. The blend of her innocence and need to experience life made her such a likable and realistic character. I already loved Jamie based on the previous novels in this series, and grew to love him even more this time around. Although I despised Jamie's best friend and business partner, he definitely added to the conflict and suspense of the story, making me wonder and stress about whether or not Jamie and Jessica would find their happily ever after! Like the other novels in the series, Sunsets at Seaside brings the reader romance, humor, challenges, friendship, and so much more! Addison Cole continues to amaze me with this addictive series full of incredible characters. There is plenty of romance and chemistry without things being too graphic, there is romance, and you will not want to put this one down! *Thanks to Beck Valley book tours for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

Sunsets at Seaside is such a fun, sweet summer read that I want to keep going back for more! Jessica is spending the summer on Seaside and taking a break from her high pressure position at the Boston Symphony Orchestra and trying to make a decision about her future. Jamie is spending the entire summer with his grandmother for the first time in years, while they still have time together. Jamie and Jessica hit it off right away and are in the sweetest new romance bubble, visiting with the Seaside group. Their romance is hot, touching and incredibly sweet. But then the real world (and Jamie's attorney) gets involved, and it's the end of their romantic respite. Can they repair their broken relationship before it comes to the end? I definitely recommend reading this book, but you'll be disappointed if you don't read the whole series!

I love this series and the was a great installment. I was sucked in right from the beginning. I knew this book would have me laughing with how Jessica and Jamie meet. Of course I knew there would be humor based on the previous books in the series. It's one of my favorite things about this series. We get to visit with previous characters an see them enjoying their HEAs. I liked how the the Seaside group took Jessica into their fold. Jessica and Jamie planned to take it easy this summer, but fate has a funny way of working. they may just find their future. The book did lose me a little towards the end, but I'm very happy on how it ended.

Sunsets at Seaside is one of my favorite Seaside books in the series. The settings are described beautifully, and I love the character interactions. Jessica Ayers is a sweet and passionate woman. She feels much older than she truly is. Jessica wants to spend the summer learning more about herself and what she truly wants in life. I love Jessica's shyness and seeing her try new things with those at Seaside. The way Jessica first meets Jamie always puts a smile on my face when ever it gets mentioned. Jamie Reed is the perfect boyfriend. He's patient, fun-loving, and family-oriented. I love how he treats his grandmother and wants to spend the summer with her. I love that Jamie is willing to take things at Jessica's speed. When things get rocky, Jamie can admit his faults. Sunsets at Seaside is a very sweet read.

Addison Cole writes the most amazing stories. Sunset is light and sweet, a perfect summer beach read. All Jessica knows is is cello lessons and practices Jamie is a billionaire who takes the summer off in Seaside. The sparky fly between them. I love the friendship of the Seaside gang.

Want a sweet super fun story then you found it! Jamie and Jessica have a sweet and bashful relationship. They complement each other very well almost as if they were meant to be. They are probably my favorite couple I just couldn’t get enough of them I would highly recommend this to everyone. There was something about these two, that you just wouldn’t want to put the book down for anything!

Sunsets at Seaside is the sweet edition of the more steamier Seaside sunsets - which was the first book I ever read by Melissa Foster so it was great to revisit Jessica and Jamie in Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole Jessica Ayers plays the Cello for the prestigious Boston Symphony Orchestra and she has rented a cottage in Seaside for the summer, and boy does she get more than she bargained for. Who would have thought that by throwing her phone in a fit after losing an eBay bid would lead her to have the summer vacation to last a lifetime. Said phone just so happened to hit Jamie Reed - who is the multi-billionaire creator of an Internet search engine called OneClick. From that moment it was clear there was chemistry between them, and that spark didn't take long to fly either. I loved the chemistry between Jessica and Jamie and in fact I loved them as a couple. Period. Jessica’s innocence is what makes this story for me, it is unusual for someone in their twenties to not have much experience of things like eBay and relationships, but after leading such a sheltered life devoted to playing the Cello it is pretty understandable. This is a sweet romance that will leave you with a warm tingly feeling of love, and a few moments where you will want to knock their heads together that will keep you on your toes 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.

How ironic is it that this couple meets over the very thing that Jamie is trying to escape from for a Summer? Technology! Jessica is an overworked and stressed professional cellist who is planning on spending the Summer deciding if it's hers or her mother's dream that she is fulfilling. Neither one plans on starting a love affair; however, fate takes over regardless of what we have planned! Jamie is sweet man who loves his grandmother and wants to spend time with her. Talk about a heart melting and exploding at the same time! He's a self-made billionaire because of his computer skills but he remains humble. Jessica has had to live up to her mother's standards and constantly puts on a performance - but it's not who she truly is.  Love whisks the pair into a sweet romance whirlwind and just like the Summer, all good things must come to an end. But is it for good? Jessica's identity is mistaken and Jamie questions if she's worth the risk of everything he's worked so hard for over the years.  Addison's Sunsets at Seaside will have you smiling, crying sweet tears, and your cheeks turning pink from the sweet heat she's created. It's very tastefully written and perfect for those who enjoy a softer touch to their romance stories. The secondary characters compliment one another very well and give you just enough to know that you want to read their story!

Jessica is a newcomer trying to escape for a bit and make some decisions about her future. She doesn't expect to find an awesome guy like Jamie, who really is her total opposite! Jamie needs a break from his hectic life and goes to the Cape with his grandmother for the summer as he's done for years. Spending time with his old friends is just what he needs! They as well as his grandmother are quite a fun and loyal group who provide plenty of laughs along the bumpy road to romance. I thought it was great the way they also accepted Jessica into the group and were so supportive of her. I look forward to reading more about this group of characters. I voluntarily read an ARC and am leaving a review.
