4.5 Stars This was a beautiful book. I just loved Desiree and Rick together. They bring what each of them needs. It was awesome to watch Desiree blossom and find herself. To gain watch she has been looking for since her childhood. Rick has been avoiding the Cape and running from memories, but this summer may be the turning point for him. What story couldn't be good with a mischievous dog. I instantly gobbled this story up. It has such an easy flow to it and all the characters are fantastic. I would highly recommend this one!

This was my favorite Addison Cole book so far! I say that with every new book, but this surpassed all my expectations. I love the insta-love between Rick and Desiree. Rick was the perfect Hero for me, he knew what he wanted and never wavered. I love that Rick was able to help Desiree become more comfortable within herself. Such a beautiful love story that I never wanted to end!

In this story we meet Rick and Desire who right off the bat you I knew were meant for each other. I have always been a fan of stories where fate works it magic to bring a couple together. Fate definitely brings these two together in an great way. Desiree is a great woman who has had to deal with an absent mother and a super fun sister. Rick Savage is a sensitive man with a big heart, but his father’s death has definitely influenced the adult he is now. I couldn’t put this book down from the start. This book had me laughing and wanting more with every page.

I am so excited to read the next Sweet with Heat series by Addison Cole. This story flowed so smoothly and I enjoyed the linking between this new series and the other Sweet with Heat series at Seaside. Great characters brought this story to life and have opened up the door to another delightful beach read series.

I absolutely loved this sweet version of Desiree and Rick in Sweet Love at Bayside by Addison Cole. Addison is the sweet timid alter ego of Melissa Foster for those who want an awesome love story without the explicit sex scenes. I’ve read both versions and they are equally amazing and must read. Desiree and Rick have the sweetest love story that all girls dream of having one day. Des is a smart, almost innocent preschool teacher who has grown up without her mom who left with her sister when she was young. She has a hard time dealing with the pain her mom left but comes running when she thinks her mom is dying. Rick is this strong hearted man who is running from his own pain and grief from losing his father in a tragic accident and he has carried the guilt for so long that he must learn to release his guilt and pain to move on. When the two meet it is love at first sight even it is just for the summer or so they think. This is a story not to be missed. I definitely recommend it. Check out the other sweet stories by Addison Cole while you pick up this one. You will be happy you did!

Sweet Love at Bayside starts out with fate taking charge in every way possible. Rick Savage thinks he has everything he wants, great job, good friend and family, but upon his return to Cape Cod old painful memories come to surface that feel almost unforgiving. The last thing he wants to do is focus or deal with his own issues so when sweet and beautiful Desiree Cleary moves in next door to him the pretty distraction is very much welcomed. Though it wasn't planned and clearly Desiree isn't impressed at first Rick knows what he wants and he isn't the one to normally walk away so easily. The steamy chemistry between the two is unmistakable, and Rick feels more alive than he ever has before, but he still has to face some painful memories sooner or later. Would Desiree stick around long enough while he deals with them? Or would she leave once she knew everything he was hiding from?  Desiree rushes to Cape Cod with several things on her mind, the number one thing being her mother. While the relationship is strained, she wouldn't turn her mother down when help is needed and rushed out to see her- only to find out that her mother had entirely different plans of her own. Stuck now watching over the family home and business while her mother travels , she's now got a half sister and a crazy dog to try and live with. Though her arrival was with caution and jolts of surprises, staying around a bit wasn't all that bad after chance encounters with Rick start to heat up. A relationship is the last thing on her mind though, Desiree carries plenty of her own issues and while the chemistry is there, she's not sure what the future holds any longer.  Will Rick and Desiree be able to over come their painful past together? You'll have to find out for yourself !  This was such a great book, really funny, loved how the story flowed and how the characters were written so well. The book made me laugh, cringe as parts ( in a funny good humor way!) and hope for the best outcome . If you enjoy a nice heartwarming romance this book is for you!

Desiree is sweet, beautiful, and somewhat reserved when the novel begins, but as she begins re-connecting with her half-sister Violet, the reader slowly sees a more carefree and adventurous side of Desiree. Rick also seems somewhat serious at the beginning, as well as, steal dealing with the trauma of losing his father during a sailing accident years earlier. However, Rick also has a fun and flirty side which only seems to grow throughout the novel. My favorite thing about Sweet Love at Bayside was the rekindling of the relationship between Desiree and Violet. Yes, I realize it should be all about the romance with Rick and Desiree, but I loved watching these two grow closer and slowly open up about their regrets about their relationship between each other, as well as, with their mother. Both Rick and Desiree reached each other in different ways, but their growing relationship sparked a new outlook on life for each of them, as well as, prompting them both to consider major life changes in order to find happiness. The beauty of it all was that their choices were not only because of the feelings that developed between them but because of an overall desire for a better life. I cannot recommend this series enough to fans of sweet, sexy, contemporary romance. If you are already a fan of Addison Cole, then I assure you that this first novel in this series will completely hook you. For those that haven’t read Addison Cole yet, you are missing out on amazing, meaningful, and heartfelt storylines that are completely addictive, make your heart burst with joy, and just leave you feeling good. Kudos to this outstanding author for bringing readers another incredible series.

Devi's is the place to let go and become a better you! Lovely starter to a sweet series by Addison Cole. Her sweet heat stories walk a beautiful line between emotion and just a hint of romance. You can just feel the falling in love feelings....and that is a hard skill to share with the world! . Rick, Desiree, Violet & Cosmo learn a lot about themselves and each other. Watching them fall in love is a wonderful ride! One you will enjoy!

Rick is taking a break from his workaholic life and keeps running into the lovely Desiree. Their attraction is undeniably adorable and I loved watching their story unfold. I mean who knew coming home would help them both find love. Addison Cole does an amazing job of making you feel like part of the story. In this love story, you feel like you're a bystander watching these two have the best fling of the summer.  If this is book one, I can't wait for the rest of this series! Addison Cole is definitely my top favorite author and I can't wait to see where she takes this series!

Sweet Love at Bayside is an adorable read. The book caught my attention from the start. The way Desiree and Rick meet is the beginning of a perfect summer romance. Both characters have a lot on their plate. Rick owns a company with his two friends. He seems like the person who has it all, but is it enough? His instant spark with Desiree leaves him wanting more. Desiree receives an unexpected and cryptic message from her mother. Desiree didn't always have the best relationship with her mother, yet she still rushes to her mother's aid. Her mother is right that some things are meant to be and happen for a reason. Desiree has much to learn about herself, her family, and possibilities for the future. The story kept my interest, and I can't wait for more. I received this book as an Advance Reader's Copy. I volunteered to leave a review. All opinions are my own.

I am completely unfamiliar with the Cape area yet I feel that I have visited many times and know it like the back of my hand! Addison's writing opens up the imagination and lets you sink into the every day life with the characters. This time around, we get to experience Desiree and Rick. Both characters face their own difficulties regarding family, careers, personal/romantic lives yet somehow, they are drawn to each other. Desiree’s mother is quite the character, indeed! She is manipulative yet flighty and comes across as a very selfish, childish woman. However, through that personality and choice of actions, her daughters are brought together and form a strong bond. Honestly, I think that was my favorite piece of the story – even beyond Rick and Desiree’s romance! The heat between the pair will make your heart soar and when the relationship brings everything/one together, you’ll feel comforted that the past is healed.  I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

In Sweet Love at Bayside, we meet Rick who owns a resort with Drake and Dean. Rick grew up in Bayside but has lived in Washington, DC for years where he has a successful business. Then, there is Desiree. Her mother, a free spirit who did not bring Desiree up but would visit her at her grandmother's house on the Cape in the summers, summons Desiree from Virginia. Desiree thinks her mother must be dying as she says it is a matter of life and death. She arrives only to find her mother is stifled and needs to travel.  The community at Bayside is beautiful and I have a new group of book friends to join every time a new book publishes. You should join the Bayside friends and pick up a copy of this book. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Addison Cole is the sweet side of the Melissa Foster. I have been reading her books for years and I am always surprised by her stories and how the characters are so well constructed and are so three dimensional. Here we have a kind of spin off of the Seaside series and now we get to meet the Bayside characters family, they are the Savage family and their friends. Rick Savage is an interesting character, he is sensitive and has a heart of gold, but the death of his father has influenced the adult he is now. Desiree is an extremely sweet girl who has an absent mother and a "crazy" and "over the top" sister. These two together are like a chocolate marshmallow sundae in the afternoon: too good to be true. You will love this series.

A great beginning for these stories set in Bayside. The characters are believable - not perfect. What a mother Desiree and Violet have. There are lots of friends for future stories. There are some absolutely laugh out loud moments. There is also Cosmos - the swimming pool loving dog. I really enjoyed this story.

Oh My Goodness…another winner from Addison Cole. The writing of this book is wonderful, sweet, sexy, and perfect. The amazing friendship, the beautiful setting, and the oh so sexy Rick Savage make this a book that I could not put down. I was so into this story that I read it early in the morning, middle of the afternoon, and late at night. I just could not put it down. There is enough heat in the story to make the reader blush yet leave the juiciest part up to their imagination. I loved the teases at Rick and Desiree’s relationship and how they were managing to become a hot steamy couple. The idea that the better their relationship was meant the better the friends were fed gave glimpses at the heat that happens between them. Lizzie made me laugh, while she had an extremely small part of in the story she was the one who set it all in motion. She sent cryptic notes to both her daughters making them rush to the family home in Cape Cod. Then she ran leaving them with a mess and Cosmos. While she will never earn a mother of the year award she did make Desiree and Violet come together after years of being apart and she inadvertently got Rick and Desiree to meet each other again. Addison Cole is so talented and I am so excited to continue this series. If you are looking for a sweet friendship, heated relationship, and a wonderful story this is the book for you.

Sweet Love at Bayside by Addison Cole is a fun, flirty, sweet romance with a touch of heart. Well crafted, easy to read, a bit predictable but totally worth the time to read. A fun beach read with great  but flawed characters, who are feisty, flirty, fiercely loyal and an interesting and entertaining small  beach town romance, set in Cape Cod.  Loved everything about SWEET LOVE BAYSIDE. The author did an amazing job of convening the characters and the story to her readers. A must read beach romance.

4.5 stars Sweet Love at Bayside by Addison Cole is a sweet, romantic and very enjoyable read. I'm really enjoying reading Addison Cole's sweet romance books. She has a special way with her words that brings the plot to life and the characters feel like you've known them all your life. I loved watching Rick and Desiree relationship develop. They have this insane attraction/chemistry which they both find very hard to resist. I found them both likable, endearing characters with big honest hearts and they totally belonged together. Sweet Love at Bayside is a lovely start to the Sweet with Heat: Bayside Summers series. It's a well written and memorable sweet read that will touch your heart and leave you full of happy feels.

While this is definitely a sweet book in that all graphic sex is behind closed doors, this pairing is sexy to the extreme! Rick is a gorgeous, sexy guy on the surface, but as Desiree quickly finds out, he's much more than a pretty face. Sweet and funny, he's that gentleman who every mom wants for their daughter. Desiree herself is sweet and serious, and dealing with mommy issues when she meets Rick. But she quickly loosens up and unleashes her hidden vixen. Featuring a great cast of secondary characters , Sweet Love at Bayside is all about romance and love but also centers around forgiveness and closure to old hurts, tragic events and misunderstandings. Set in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, the beach setting is perfect for a summer romance.

Desiree comes to what she believes to be the aid of her mom only to find that she's been setup to take care of things while her absentee mom goes on yet another adventure. Shortly after arriving in town she meets a hunky guy, who ends up at her door with a dog that she doesn't even know she's taking care of! Rick is surprised when he tries to return the dog that's wrecking havoc at his resort and runs in to the mystery woman he's interested in (Desiree). Desiree also gets an opportunity to know her half sister better and boy are they ever opposites! While Desiree loves a schedule and routine, Violet is more a free spirit! Rick has some things he's running from and with the help and love of Desiree and his family he faces things. So many laugh out loud moments in this book that you'll keep turning the pages to see what happens! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

This was my first Addison Cole book. It won't be my last. I enjoyed the main characters Rick and Desi a lot. They were people I would like to meet and would like as friends. The secondary characters were fun too. The friendships were as much of the story as the main characters love story. Desi goes running to her mother's when she finds out she is dying. Her sister is drawn back too. It's a great beginning to the story. Desi meets Rick on her first day there and her fate was sealed. I enjoyed the story a lot, it was a fun feel good book. I received an advance copy in return for an honest review.

I love these characters and the story line. From the first day they meet, Rick and Desiree have chemistry. Rick is easily your next book boyfriend. He is very thoughtful and romantic, with a little help from Desiree; he is able to get some closure on things in his past that are so painful. I love how they discuss things and trust each other with their feelings. It’s how a good relationship starts and continues. Desiree is a breath of fresh air who just needs a little nudge to break out of her pre-school teacher shell. She gets help from her sister and from Rick to see into her past with her Mother. This is again, one of my favorite books by Addison Cole. I love the beginning of this new Series. Sweet Love at Bayside is a hit!

Another amazing read by Addison Cole! This story between Desiree Cleary and Rick Savage was just so sweet. They meet by chance when Desiree receives a letter from her flighty mother that leaves Desiree to believe her mother is dying. Desiree leaves her home in VA and rushes to her grandmothers old house in Wellfleet where her mom lives. She stops at the pier in Wellfleet to get a little fresh air before facing her mom. Rick was out on his jet ski with his two business partners having a little fun when he spots Desiree on the pier and can’t take his eyes off her. When he decides to get a little closer to say hello, he misjudges his turn and soaks poor Desiree. Not the best way to introduce yourself. They leave that day wondering if they’ll see each other again. What happens after that first meeting will have you laughing, smiling, and getting a little hot under the collar! I loved everything about this book. While the romance and chemistry between Desiree and Rick was absolutely perfect, the relationships with Violet (the sister), and Emery (the best friend), and Dean and Drake (business partners), and of course Cosmo (a frolicking little pup) will have you wishing you were part of a group, just like this one. The love and laugher between this group of friends will have you wanting to read all the books in the series! This book can be read as a standalone.
