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 by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Sunsets. 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 Sunsets at Seaside....
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.
We’ve met Jaime in previous Seaside books. Now it’s his turn for a story. Jessica is here for the summer to get away from her stressful life as a cellist. Things heat up when she hits him in the head. They have their issues but they find a way to make it work. It’s narration by Melissa Moran was spot on! Can’t wait for the next one!
On the surface, Jamie and Jessica have nothing in common. He's a workoholic, she's a sheltered musician. Yet it's their differences that make the similarities stand out. Sunsets at Seaside is the rhythm you hear in your heart, when the radio stops playing. It's the tune you can't forget.
This is the most wonderful story! I already knew Jamie from the other books in the series as a sexy, computer nerd that always showed how much he loved his grandmother. It is no problem though if you have not read the previous books in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone. I loved getting to know him so much better in this book. Then, we meet Jessica in this book. She has always been prim and proper as she dedicates her life to playing the cello professionally. Well, we soon learn there is more hidden inside of her as the joins the Seaside Sisters. This book definitely has the sweet, with heat, but will also bring you lots of laughter, and a few tears. I love how the two meet. We have all become frustrated with technology at some time, and wanted to throw our cell phone. When Jessica does that, it hits a sexy man, Jamie, in the head. It had "Jamie radar". From there, Addison Cole, develops a story, that is so well written and such an enjoyable read, that you will have a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend this book.
After reading the book, I then also got the audiobook, and listened to it. What an enjoyable way to travel to and from work every day! Melissa Moran did a great job as narrator. She added even more to the book with just her voice. It is very important to me to have a narrator that keeps your attention, and you can always tell which character is talking. She does both of these really well, so she takes a wonderful book, and makes it a joy to listen to it.
The flow of the narration was what I loved most. I could keep up with the characters through the beautiful way in which Melissa did transition and cadence flow. The audio was smooth and clear.
The read was sweet, loving, enjoyable, with all the characters that lends themselves to developing a beautiful relationship filled with passion. Jessica and Jamie both came to find something they felt they were missing in their everyday lives. This read proves to you that you can get a romance that fills you up without the explicit sexuality and language.
We get to watch as Jessica and Jamie build their romance from the bottom up. There are trying times with an overbearing mother, interesting grandmother, interfering friend, and a number of other characters that makes this a beautiful summer read.
One simple incident leads to a happy meeting, leads to undeniable chemistry, leads to a chance to live life and experience new things. Jessica discoveries there’s so much more to the world around her than the dictates of her mother, her career, and practice.
If you are looking for a romance that makes you feel good, puts a smile on your face, gives you a dream of something different, ignites passion, chemistry, and even makes you laugh out loud. Then I would most certainly suggest you pick up a copy of Sunsets at Seaside. Jessica and Jamie will give you a read to make your afternoon that much brighter.
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.
Addison Cole has written a wonderful romantic love story definitely sweet with just enough heat. This was a story of two people who come together from different worlds one a computer geek and the other a wonderful musician. These characters have chemistry right from the start and they are so completely into one another. I loved Jessica Ayers and Jamie Reed. This was a great read I recommend this book it was fun and sweet. The narrator made this story come alive.
A wonderful summertime read and audio book. I have read this book and I have listened to this book. I love both versions.
The narrator of this book has great deflection in her voice when she changes characters and you can keep up with whom is speaking at the time.
This is one of the Seaside stories in Addison Cole’s Sweet with heat series. This is Jamie and Jessica’s story.
Jessica has come to the Cape to escape her responsibilities with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and to find out how it is to live a “normal” life. Jamie is at the Cape to spend the summer with his grandmother, Vera.
Jessica and Jamie quickly fall in love, but there are a lot of misunderstandings that pull them apart. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see if things work out. This is a wonderful HEA story.
