Josh and Riley have had a crush on each other since school. But because of an on going feud with the Bradens and the Johnsons (her best friend Jade Johnson) they never let each other know. When Jade got together with Rex Braden, Riley was embraced into the family. When Josh offered her a job in New York she jumped at the chance to become a fashion designer and learn from the best. She tries her hardest to fit in and quickly makes friends with most of her co workers. But there is one who tries to belittle her at every opportunity. Claudia wants Josh and will do anything to get him. As Josh and Riley get closer Claudia steps up her game. When Claudia accuses Riley of stealing designs it get ugly quickly with Josh caught in the middle, will his love for Riley fizzle before its even started or will the evidence clear Riley. Josh is one of my favourite Bradens along with his brother Dane. I have read the book on several occasions and have now listened to it on audio. Melissa did good when she picked BJ Harrison as the narrator

Jenna is a little pocket rocket with a heart of gold. She loves her friends and loves Pete from afar. Pete is the oldest of the Lecroux siblings and therefore thinks he has to look after everyone including his alcoholic father. After a few misses in the relationship department they embark on a hot and steamy romance. There is great interaction from all the other seaside ladies that create a few laughs. Great to catch up with them. Loved the narration from Melissa Moran. Love forward to listening to more from Addison.

I have read this book and have now listened to it as well. I never thought I would listen to audio books but I love them. Rex is a a man who loves his family and the values his father has instilled into all his brothers and sister. Jade has returned home after a break up and looking to establish her career. Their families have been feuding for over 40 years so a relationship between them could tear the families apart. When Rex rescues Jade and her horse the sparks start to fly. They keep the relationship to themselves at the beginning until a fright with Hope the horse Rex's father brought for their mother. From then on fences are mended. This is another good book by Melissa and another good narration by BJ Harrison

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene. Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his 14-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for - or even realized he was missing.

Best-selling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller - that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

This is the story of Kurt and Leanna, who on the surface would normally be suited to each other. He is neat and tidy to the point of OCD. Leanna is the exact opposite but its seems its just what both of them need. Add to this her friends who each could have their own story, who look out for each other, and Pepper Leanna's dog who will do anything for Kurt. With some books that don't go into explicit detail it tends to lose its way, but this has more depth to the story with the added characters that you don't notice that there are no swear words or explicit sex. Look forward to reading more. Having read the book I have also listened to it as well. Its just as good listening to it

This book had it all, laughter and tears to the end. Danica and Kaylie are having a double wedding. All is good the sun is shining, their family and friends are all there. Even their father is there with his new wife and their half sister Lacey. after getting to know Lacey they welcome her into their lives. Of course not everything goes the way they want it to, but of course they get through it. There was the right amount of angst, tears and laughter, make for a very good listen. Great end to the Snow Sisters, and a great introduction to the Braden family.

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.

Who couldn’t fall in love with Matt and Hagen. Mira and Matt have been flirting with each other for a long time. They met at his brothers wedding and kept in touch. Now Matt is back on the Cape for 3 months or so he thought. Once he gets to know Mira better he realises that he couldn’t go back. Add in Mira’s adorable son Hagen and he is definitely isn’t leaving. Nice to see the original seaside ladies make an appearance and still up to mischief. This was one of my favourite audio books well worth a listen to

Parker and Grayson have been emailing each other for months, when they finally get to meet each other its not how Parker though it would go. Grayson is looking after her house in Wellfleet and stumbles across her in a drunken state covered in M&Ms. After getting over her embarrassment, she sees Grayson in a different light and develops feeling for him. He helps her overcome the loss of her best friend Bert, and he loves her dog Christmas. While in Wellfleet she starts to relax and enjoy a life she could only image, she meets the girls from Seaside as well as Grayson's family. The story takes us on a journey of discovery and heartache and what ifs. I have also listened to the audio version, which is told by male and female narrators. Takes a bit a getting used to but after a few minutes of listening you get immersed into the book. Loved this book, well done Addison
