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!

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Hearts. 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.


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?

Jenna Ward is spending some quality time with her friends.  Pete Lacroux just needs a wake up call.  The way our author has written this story makes you feel as if you are sitting amongst friends having a good time and just enjoying yourself.  And if you need a good laugh they’ll do that for you too.

As I was reading, and getting lost in a really great beach read, Jenna says something to Pete that resonates with me.  I made a choice that she has decided that maybe they both need to think about.  It’s something we don’t think about growing up and don’t realize sometimes until it’s too late.  Would I do it all over again if given the chance?  Without hesitation.

Our author has written a series that takes place in my state of residence.  She has shown me how much I need to get out and explore more of what it has to offer.  I don’t usually visit the Cape during the summer because of all the traffic and how long it takes to get places.  But who’s to say that I can’t go off-season.  Some things she mentions, as part of the scenes she wrote, I checked to see if they were true or not – got to start thinking about my itinerary.  There is a pier but some of the other things seem to be creative license by our author but they are things that could actually take place.  But if you look up things to do there are some things similar.

It’s a place that is now on my bucket list.  And I can see myself taking this series with me, staking out my stretch of beach, and getting lost amongst friends.  The story also reminds me that sometimes our parents will drive us nuts but we still love them – and how much we drove them nuts and they still love us.  In a way it’s sad because we still think of them as parents no matter how old we/they get.  But they have feelings just like we do – this story shows how hard it is to dissolve that invisible line.

As I got toward the end of this story our book friends reminded me of something that I missed.  Jenna’s story is book three in the series but somehow I missed Bella’s.   So since these books could be read as standalones I can go back at any time so that I don’t miss the adventures these women are going to take me on.  I can’t wait for the next escapade.

She stood in the middle of the boat, and he watched her eyes dance over his workmanship. He’d refinished all of the wood, stained and painted it, and worked his fingers to the bone, which he now realized he had done to work out his frustrations over his father’s drinking.
“Pete, this is stunning. It’s beautiful.”
You’re stunning, Jenna. I don’t mean that as cheesy as it sounds.” He folded her into his arms and kissed the edge of her mouth. “You have the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever known, and it comes through with everything you do and say.”
He kissed her softly, loving the feel of her hands as they traveled up his chest, and he deepened the kiss. He pushed away the thoughts of his father and what the boat was supposed to signify and allowed himself to get lost in Jenna, in the taste of her lips as he dragged his tongue over the bow of her upper lip.
She reached for him, her eyes full of pleasure and desire. Pete reveled in the sound of his name coming off her lips, and his heart swelled. He’d shared his most intimate secret with Jenna, and as he lowered his cheek to hers, he barely contained the three words that he wanted to say. Their relationship was years in the making, and there was no stopping his heart from pouring out, one word at a time. He had to tell her, had to let her know, even if he withheld the words he really wanted her to hear.
