Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.
With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, beautiful Mira.
A surprise encounter leads to midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?
Sweet with Heat books are the sweet editions of the Love in Bloom steamy romance novels by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Sweet with Heat books convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.
Matt Lacroux reminded me that I may have lived in Massachusetts my whole life but that I’ve missed something since I’ve never been to Orleans. Now that I have a little more time to myself, I just may have to change that. And if you’ve been following this series you may want to go out and explore yourself.
Mira Savage doesn’t realize she wants the same thing as Matt. She’s at the point in her life where she wants to make some changes. She has a cute little boy who will steal both your heart and the scenes he’s in. He’s smart and you almost want to be there to watch him grow up because you can tell right away that he’s going to steal some girl’s heart.
The author may have removed a lot of the “heat” in her story but some of the adult conversation was very interesting. She was also very nice to her readers by including some characters from previous books. One thing she’s very good at is making all her characters believable and people that you want to be friends with. Spring may be the season for rebirth but Summer is the time to recharge and reconnect.
There’s just something about having time to get away with family and friends. We have a chance to decompress and reconnect with the people we love. It’s also a time when we seem to give ourselves permission to get a little silly. It’s also a great time to reread some of those books that you enjoyed so much and you’re looking to get your vacation reads ready. What better way to do that than to take books that center around vacation destinations?
Hagen made me both hungry and disappointed. While he’s having man time with Matt they go out and eat. It’s one thing I miss when I go to a seaside town because my food allergy gets in my way. In one respect it’s a way of eating a little healthier but when I eat out after a day at the beach there’s just something about fried fish or fried clams that just speaks vacation and seaside. In that one particular scene between these two boys, I could practically smell their food – even made my stomach growl.
With all the books, in this series, that I want to take on vacation I think I’m going to have to take the Summer off. I want to be able to enjoy reconnecting with the characters – like reconnecting with friends. I don’t know about you but when on vacation I don’t want to read a story that’s going to bring me down. This author never does that to me. She has me wanting to belong to this group – sitting there while they tell their stories and bringing everyone up-to-date on everything they’ve been doing since we last saw each other. One thing I’ll have to remember to pack is a lot of tissue because there are endings that will make you happy and leave you with a tear in your eye.
