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 bestselling 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.

I have to preface this review with the admission that I’ve already read this book with the high heat. And if you read above the blurb, Ms. Cole is correct. Take out the overly sexy parts and the book is much richer and emotional. Now don’t get me wrong, I loved the sexy one but with the sweet romance, I was drawn more into the characters and not looking for the smexy times.
I’m no prude and believe me, I’ve read enough erotic books in my lifetime but I’m finding myself leaning towards the sweeter side of romance now. Ms. Cole did an excellent job converting her sexy books into sweet. You will never miss a beat with the general content but again, I found Jamie and Jessica’s rich because of the closed door. All that said, this is a very sexy book in terms of the romance. The build up is great and you can really feel the heat between them. 😉
Another thing about this book is it’s the perfect beach read. I normally don’t get into the hype about beach reads but this one…I really felt like I was on the beach and in the town with them. The town and all the secondary characters in the book are perfect for Jessica and Jamie. You have two people that are overworked, feeling lost and trying to figure for themselves if their “work” can sustain them. Jamie has a bit more to overcome in the book and the black moment is very black. I wanted to slap him but he needed to FINALLY figure out what was more important. And not have Vera (his grandmother) tell him what to do.
Overall, I loved the book clean and dirty. I’ve read Ms. Cole and her alter ego, Ms. Foster before and she never disappoints. I can’t wait to dive into the other sweet books in this series.
