HEARTS AT SEASIDE

In READ, WRITE, LOVE at SEASIDE...

Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller -- that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

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?

In HEARTS at SEASIDE...
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident-except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter-and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux--the most alpha male she's ever seen-or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

The entire Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series (10 fabulous books!) is now available for your binge-reading pleasure! Filled with humor and heart, you'll love these beach reads!

Wonderful I loved that the first three books in this series are together. Having such close friends make great friends and lasting relationships. Three of the women have found love and the fourth lady still has a long time crush on a summer resident. Can't wait to read some more.

Read, Write, Love at Seaside You will enjoy Addison Cole's first book. It's sweet and will get you in the mood for summer, the beach and great friends. A great intro into the Seaside gang. Kurt is a writer, Leanna is a free spirit. These two couldn't be more opposite but you can't help but cheer them on. Addison brings out the sweet and sexy without over doing it. Can't wait for the next one. Dreaming at Seaside Back among friends. A sweet read by Addison Cole. This book is about Bella and Caden. Bella is wondering what to do with her life while she is in limbo, and Caden is a sexy cop with a son. They meet while Bella is up to some of her tricks around Seaside. Their chemistry is there from the beginning. If you are look for a sweet summer read this one is for you. Hearts at a Seaside I love the Sweet with Heat series. Jenna and Pete are not exception. I loved Jenna and Pete's story. I've been rooting for them to get together for 2 books now. Jenna knows what she wants and will use what she's got to get it. Pete is a little more skidish. When he finally gives in though, watch out. Their love is truly one of a kind. I love the whole Seaside gang.

Rating: 4.5 Stars This is a set of previously published books in the author’s Seaside Summers series. If you’ve missed this author’s work in the Sweet With Heat series this is a great way to get introduced. It’s a set where you get the first three books in this magnificent series. I fell in love with these friends immediately. Yes, I’ve read the first book. Yes, I’ve read the third book. But sadly I never got the chance to read the second book. I thank the author for giving me the chance to correct that. If you already have the books, there’s no need to get this set but how about as a gift to a friend who has never been introduced to either this author or her characters. Maybe you’ve read the work by Melissa Foster but not her alter ego; this would be a way to correct that. Our author’s books get me to relax almost immediately. I’m just a few hours away from Wellfleet and every time I pick up one of these books, I want to be on that beach reading these books taking peeks every once in a while in case I ever see someone that may have made an appearance as a character. I want to be one of those people sitting around a beach bonfire having s’mores and listening to all the fantastic tales these characters could tell about each other. It also has me sad because summer will be over too quickly. Good news is that I can pick up this series and be back down on that beach having a great time with some fictional friends. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Read, Write, Love at Seaside Wow! What a great story of finding your missing piece! Leanna and Kurt were pure magic together. They had such a pure, unconditional love between them. Theirs was a beautiful journey to their happy ending. They angst was small in the grand scheme of things, but heartwarming at the resolution. And I loved meeting the Seaside girls. They were fabulous together, encouraging, brutally honest, hilarious in their talks - beautiful friendships! Dreams at Seaside From the risque moment they met to the end of their story, Bella and Caden were amazing. I loved their story and the way they meshed so well into each other's lives. I enjoyed Bell's fun times and drawing Caden into them. I loved Caden's overprotective responsibility towards his son and how he was raising him. But most, I loved how Bella was so accepting of Caden's relationship with his son and fell in love with Evan too. In this book, like the first one, there is no shortage of funny scenes with their crazy Seaside friends. There is never a dull moment and a great place to live knowing someone always has your back. Hearts at Seaside When reading the blurb for this box set, I wanted to read Hearts at Seaside first, but I ended up saving it for last and in the order of the series. I am glad I did because it is my favorite of this set. I totally enjoyed Pete's reaction to seeing Jenna trying to move on from him. He was hilarious to read at those times. But it was such a beautiful wake up call for him to realize how he felt about and want to pursue Jenna. There are so many cute and loving moments between Jenna and Pete. I loved how they had a strong friendship first and really knew the other person. And then their support of one another in struggles with their parents was simply touching. I am thankful to have read this boxed set. I feel that the series only gets better with each story and character added. The girls' friendship only gets stronger and funnier with each book. I cannot wait to read more from this series. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Read, Write, Love -Authoraholic meets no boundaries Jam Maker……. When Kurt rescues Leanna and her dog from the ocean the attraction hits him hard and that attraction was instant. Talk about two people who are complete opposite. This book is such a sweet story with a HEA. A must read!!! Dreaming At Seaside - I adore Bella, she is my favorite Seaside lady. . She is so feisty and had me laughing. The way Bella and Caden meet will have you laughing. The friendship between these Seaside girls is great. In highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed Hearts at Seaside - This is perfect summer beach read and will not disappoint. Jenna has had feeling for Peter for a while. When she finally gives up she asks out someone else and that is when Peter wakes up. I love returning to the girls of Seaside. With these sweet series you will find yourself laughing and crying. If I could give these books more then 5 starts I would. Please note, this review is my opinions and mine only.

4.5 - "There's no place I'd rather be." Stars! A great little box-set offering up something for everyone, and really great for this time of year, because each story takes place over a different summer. Read, Write, Love at Seaside, Dreaming at Seaside and Hearts at Seaside Give us a little bit of everything in relation to the tropes used too with; Leanna and Kurt, Bella and Caden, as well as Jenna and Pete, all reaching their happily ever after by totally different routes. "Do you ever wish summer could last forever..?" I am still relatively new to Addison Cole/Melissa Fosters writing, and this was my first foray into her Sweet with Heat offerings and not one of the stores felt any less than perfect even though the sexy-times take place behind closed doors, so if you like a little more swoon and a lot less sweat with your romance this is definitely a box-set worth checking out. "How on earth did I get so lucky..?" I loved the dynamic between the characters as well all three women have been friends for years, with several others as well and the stories had a real familial feel because of it, everyone crops up in each other’s stories so you get to know them all equally as each one meets their heroes individually. Perfect summer reading, whether it be on a vacation, staycation, plane, train, cruise-ship or camel!

I love that I can get Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heat Boxed set to binge read. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is truly a SWEET romance! Kurt Remington is swoon worthy, organized and a writer. Leanna Bray is cute, searching for a career and doesn't plan a thing. But a chance meeting between the two leads to a whirlwind romance. I loved these characters. Dreaming at Seaside is a funny and romantic story featuring Seaside resident Bella. She has an 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. Hearts at Seaside truly touched my heart. Jenna has loved Pete for many years but this summer at Seaside she decides to give up on him as he has her strictly in the friend zone. Jenna and Pete each deal with some serious issues while finding their happily ever after.

Such a great boxed set!!! Read Write Love at Seaside I adored this book! Kurt & Leanna's love story is so sweet and genuine; you can't help but to fall in love with them. They are just so real, so honest and just so dang lovable. I couldn't get enough of them. Leanna's friends are also a hoot. Thank goodness for Pepper, Leanna's labradoodle as they may not have met without Kurt having to jump into the ocean to save him. As a huge romance lover, I have to say that every now and then it is nice to read a romance that isn't buried beneath a lot of sex. It is implied in this book, just not described. Yet the chemistry between Kurt & Leanna is just as hot. Dreaming at Seaside 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. Hearts at Seaside Let me just start by saying that I love this group of friends in Seaside. And this is such a sweet love story a long time in the making between Jenna and Pete. Jenna is so sweet and funny and has been in love with Pete for so long but she has decided that she will finally get over him since they seem 100% stuck in the friend zone. Pete is also sweet and just such a nice guy and has been feeling the same way about Jenna but does not get that feeling from her (she acts very strangely around him completely different from her personality). But there is no way he can simply sit back and watch her date other men so something has to give. Watch the sizzling chemistry when these two finally figure things out; it’s just wonderful!

Although I purchased each of these separately, trust me that this is an incredible box set! These first three installments in Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat series are romantic, hilarious, sweet, sexy, and completely addictive! Get to know Leanna (Read, Write, Love at Seaside), Bella (Dreaming at Seaside), and Jenna (Hearts at Seaside) - along with tons of other wonderful characters at their seaside cottages in Wellfleet and prepare to laugh until your stomach is sore. These novels are not only romantic and funny but full of amazing characters that Addison Cole has developed so well it will feel as if they are your own bunch of friends. Let me warn you, however, that once you read these first three installments you will be completely addicted to the Sweet with Heat Series!

Ms. Cole proves that romance can be sweetly seductive with a hint of heat and an abundance of heart. Read, Write, Love at Seaside - Warmth and light abound within an intoxicating romance. The loner and the optimist may be an odd combination, but the healing qualities they bring out in one another helps them find common ground. Simply irresistible. Dreaming at Seaside - 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 and Bella are a reminder that despite the pitfalls, love is a rewarding experience. Hearts at Seaside - No matter how many times I read Hearts at Seaside it continues to grab at my heart. Great characters, a beautiful story and a few lessons in life along the way. Addison Cole knows what it means to be binge worthy. She takes the most beautiful moments, adds humor and an edge of heat and makes for a highly addictive series.
