Publisher's Summary

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!

Read, Write, Love at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Read, Write, Love. 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 Read, Write, Love at Seaside...

Best-selling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 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 to hell 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.

  My Thoughts…

I listen to audiobooks while working out, driving around, or when I am home alone.   Read, Write, Love at Seaside is a book that I read a little bit ago and then listened to.  I found when I listened to the story I lost myself even more into the story, the characters, and the setting of Seaside.  Melissa Moran, the narrator, did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life and of bringing the feelings right out of the book into my heart.   She takes Addison Cole's, author, words and brings them to life.   I was sneaking time to listen just because I couldn’t get enough of these amazing characters and wonderful story.

Oh My Gosh.... Addison Cole has written the sweetest, most loving, and amazing story.

Kurt is lost in his own book world and not interested in anything but his family and writing when Leanna stumbles into his life and turns it upside down. I love how opposite these two are. Kurt is organized, serious, and focused. Leanna is flirty, klutzy, and rolls with whatever is happening. Together they are perfect. They balance each other out perfectly.

I believe Kurt is almost perfect, only almost because perfect isn't any fun. He not only accepts Leanna's unorganized life but he integrates himself into that life without making it big deal. At no point does he make her feel bad about how different they are. He accepts her as she is without questioning or pushing her to change. Leanna also accepts Kurt as he is. She understands when he has to go into his own world and write instead of hanging out with her and doesn't pressure him to do what she wants.

This is listed as Sweet with Heat for a reason. The sweet part is found on every page, whether in Kurt and Leanna's relationship or in the friendships of the Seaside Summer Girls. The heat is hinted at numerous times yet Addison Cole leaves the true heat to the reader's imagination.

This is the perfect read for a cold night cuddled by a fire or a day at the beach in the hot sun. The Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series is sure to become a favorite.
