In Secrets at Seaside....
Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He's got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago, she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed - at least for her.
Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She's spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she's spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she's ever loved. She's back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she's been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she's decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past - and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

Secrets at Seaside is the final book in this series...”which 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 and you'll be begging to enter their circle of friends”. And I am a bit sad to have to say goodbye to them.
Amy Maples has been in love with Tony Black since she first met him, and they share a secret which has hovered in the background since a summer long past. They have spent every summer together since at the Cape, but have resisted acting on their feelings because of that secret. Amy has a big decision to make that could potentially take her away from this group of friends who have become a “family” of sorts and she is hoping her friends can help her make the right choice.
Tony does not want to stand in her way but does not want to let her go either. He feels he is not good enough for her. In his mind, she needs a stable, grounded man… not a surfer who spends his time traveling in search of the perfect wave. But he is struggling to set his feelings towards her aside and not influence her decision.
As she works through her decision-making process, she and Tony face their past and their feelings towards each other. Secrets are revealed and relationships are tested. Will love win out?
I enjoyed the narration... the reading was well paced and her voice was easy to listen to. The book (and the series) end in such a perfect way…with all the quirkiness and fun we have come to expect from this group! This is just the right story to tie up the series and I loved every minute of it.
This is a wonderfully written love story about second chances and true love. I loved the Seaside series, but this is my favorite book! The chemistry between Amy and Tony is so amazing you can tell that they are made to be together. The narrator keeps you interested and makes it hard to stop listening to the story. This is my first book by this narrator and am looking forward to listening to more. She really brings Melissa’s characters to life.
This audio book was a wonderful listen to book. Melissa Moran's reading of this book is great! You always know who is speaking, you also know when a character is thinking vs speaking. Through Melissa's reading, you experience the emotional roller coaster with Tony and Amy.
Tony and Amy have a past, a past that is very painful and one that they have tried to forget for the last 14 years. But Tony and Amy are still in love with each other and must decide whether or not they should take a 2nd chance on their love. Whether you are reading or listening to this book, do so with a box of tissue.
This is a review for the audible book of Secrets at the Seaside by Addison Cole is the latest book in the Sweet with Heat series.
This series follows the stories of the girls who all spend their summers in Cape Cod and each story just keeps getting better and better!
This is the love story of Tony and Amy and how after being in love with each other forever they finally get together and deal with their issues from the past which had kept them apart for many years.
There are many parts in this story which will make you laugh, cry and make your heart flutter! It’s just an excellent romantic novel!
I absolutely love this series and there is nothing better than a book that hooks you from the first page!
Having the book on audible means that you can listen to the story anywhere! Had a long train journey and just plugged in and relaxed whilst listening to the book.
Can’t wait for the next one!!!
A wonderfully sweet book of secrets, heartbreak and second chances. Amy and Tony have history from when they were teenagers which ended so quick. Can they get their second chance at love whilst trying to be brave at telling their friends about their past. A great book to read in the seaside secrets series. I read this book as an advanced reader copy
This story is just so beautiful and emotional.
We've watched Amy dance around her feeling for Tony over many of the Seaside books. Little did we know there was such a story there. It is such a sweet, beautiful, yet heartbreaking story going back to their teens. I cannot write a summary of the story, without giving too much away. Needless to say this is a wonderful read / listen, touching on some tough subjects, but well worth the read. It has you rooting for them to find each other and realise that their love is real.
A beautiful well-narrated tale of two people rekindling romance whilst healing one another after their hearts had been broken from tragedy. This story is honest, raw and I couldn't help but be captivated once again by the characters of Cape Cod.
Amy is always hopeful and lusting after Tony her 'one that got away', and after gaining the opportunity of a lifetime decides to put it all on the line and try to recapture the attention of the lover she once knew and had. You admire her bravery, enjoy the laughs that are shared among friends and root for Tony and Amy to eventually find their way.
Tony's love and caution for Amy is truly adorable, admirable and swoon-worthy, and Amy's fears and caution are relatable and you feel yourself eagerly anticipating the moment they realize they've always belonged together.
This book is a journey, a journey of ups and downs that will not leave you disappointed. You'll adore Amy's sweet nature and wish for Tony to be your guy. I would recommend this book to all sweet romance lovers, people who are tired of reading hot and heavy meaningless books and want to encapsulate themselves into a world full of amazingly fun characters. This is book is as enjoyable as a standalone or as part of the much-loved series, so don't be afraid to give it a try.
Their chemistry and story are literally given a voice and I loved hearing it being told in a different way. I would recommend the audio version to anyone who is unable to dedicate the time to focus on reading books and is always on the go.
I had tears flowing down my cheeks listening to this book.
Secrets at Seaside is so emotional on many levels and the raw emotions felt by both characters comes through in the audio.
Amy and Tony have been through so much together that their connection is so strong and their love for each other is evident but due to their history they struggle with how to deal with how they feel and move forward.
Addison has touched on a subject in this book/audio that many men and woman can relate to but the book was wrote tactfully and done with delicacy.
I loved listening to this book and will certainly listen to more by Addison.
Absolutely adore this story and cry every time. Melissa Moran is also an amazing narrator. This makes the story so much more real. A must listen book for sure.
This is my favourite of the Sweet with Heat series. Amy has had a crush on Tony forever. He has also been hiding his feelings for her. They have secrets that they have kept from their friends and have never spoken to each other about it. They seem to avoid each other over the summers spent at Seaside. When they decide to take the next step its time to put the past behind. While there is still the comedy moments from the other Seaside Ladies its the emotional side of the story that had me hooked. With an audible book you can get inside the story loved it
