Summary

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!

Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Dreams. 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 Dreaming at Seaside....

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.

After 14 years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son - even Bella?

Loved it!!!!

This audiobook is amazing!!! Bella and Caden had me in fits of giggles from the start. Bella has sworn off men and is trying to decide what route she wants her life to go down when she meets Caden a single dad and police officer who does not have time to date. However over time no matter how hard they try to fight it romance starts to blossom. There are ups and downs on the course to their happily ever after but when they get their they realise it's worth it. Another fantastic audiobook by Addison and cannot wait for more!!!!

Dreaming at Seaside.

Dreaming at Seaside is a beautifully sweet romance that centers around Bella Abbascia. Bella is at a turning point in her life, after a failed relationship, quitting her job, she escapes to Seaside in order to escape and attempt to rebuild her life. The audio copy is narrated by Melissa Moran, who adds fun and excitement to this story in the way in which she portrays both Bella and Caden. Bella is funny, tenacious and loves to play pranks, but behind the facade of her humor is a sensitive soul who has come to Seaside in order to escape. Caden Grant is a single father, who is desperately trying to do the right thing. When their paths cross due to a hilarious prank, their chemistry is off the chart. The audiobook is fast-paced, clear and really captivates you as a listener. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this on the commute to work. I would recommend to all readers who are maybe struggling to get through their reading lists, anyone wanting to give audiobooks a try, and for anyone who is a lover of romance.

A Must Listen

I really loved this book. I love single dads. I love sexy, hunky, policemen. I love the crazy ladies and men of Seaside. I love books written by Addison Cole. This book is a win-win-win-win. After teaching middle school for 30 years, I loved having Caden's son, Evan, in this book. It is rare to have a teenaged son in a romance, but he added so much emotion to the story. I have already read the first book in the series, so I am very familiar with the ladies and men from Seaside. They are very entertaining, and will bring lots of laughter to the book. The way that Caden meets Bella for the first time had me laughing so hard, and this is at the beginning. I really want to move to Seaside and join them, but since that can't happen I will be planning to read every book in this series. Then, there is the author, Addison Cole. She can really write. This book has just the right amount of sweet with heat. She had me so pulled into the story, I cried for the last 20% of the book. Some were happy and some were sad, but all were worth it. This is a must read!! After reading it, I have now listened to the audiobook too. It is just as good. I might have loved it even more as Melissa Moran brought it to life. I recommend that you read it or listen to it, it is up to you.

Have a little Faith

I really enjoyed the initial meeting between Bella Abbascia and Caden Grant. It was definitely a meeting that will leave a lasting impression, especially with Caden. I loved this story and watching these two with dating and getting to know each other especially since Caden has a son and Caden trying to make time for Bella and his son. There were definitely ups and a few downs with these two, but as always our Seaside gang of friends is in the background to cheer for you or be there when you need support. That’s a huge part of my love of Addison Cole’s books. The ending was so good. I listened to this as an audiobook which was narrated by Melissa Moran. I have listened to quite a few books by her and she continues to do a good job. This audiobook had a lot of funny moments and some serious moments and I felt she really captured both and you could definitely feel the emotion of the moment.

This book was so much fun to read! Bella left her job to start over in Cape Cod where she spend her Summer's growing up. Cade is a police officer and single dad who saw is friend and partner get shot and killed and decided he has to move for his sons sake. This book is so delightful, I laughed so much, a charming, clean love story. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series so I can check in and see what's happening with the characters ! I also listened to the audible and hustled loved it!

Wonderful story

What another great book by Addison Cole! Bella is such a fun loving spunky girl that you can't not love! It was enjoyable to see how Cade and Bella's relationship grew. I definitely love this new series! I loved reading Dreaming at Seaside but I loved the audio version as well, Melissa Moran bring the characters to life. She does an amazing job.

fantastic friends, family, romance, seaside

Melissa Moran gives a performance that make the rich character that Addison Cole have created take on a new life. Melissa brings back the characters that I fell inlove with in the previous book. Her vocals add an element of familiarity with the characters we already met through her. The were no issues with the clarity, sound quality, no skipping, no echoing. You could make a connection and it carried all the way to the end of the read. Here we find ourselves back at Seaside, this time with Bella and Caden. Of course, we have the others from the Seaside gang also. We get the sweet, innocent, less provocative, yet still fulfilled romance rich characters both supporting and primary, a set-story line, and the romance journey. This was a good clean read that can be read by beginning romance readers. Seeing Caden and Bella fall in love was pure clean fun. Add a teenager, girlfriends, and the community of Seaside to it all. You get a good afternoon read/listen. You get friends, family, and more.

My Favorite Trip to Seaside so Far!

This review is for the audio book version of Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole. Bella's book was one I was really anxiously awaiting the most and I TRULY felt I related to her the most out of all of Addison's Seaside characters. This summer at Seaside for Bella will definitely be different than any other. She has quit her job, and left everything behind to try and build a new and improved life for herself. That is something that just grabbed me by the heartstrings and didn't let go. I personally am going through something similar, and am trying to find my happy. What will bring me joy in life? How will I get there? Caden was a character that I loved as well. He has spent so much time taking care of his son, and protecting his town as a police officer, that when he meets Bella, his feelings for her really throw him off. Melissa Moran was a fabulous narrator for this book as well. She did such a great job of bringing all of the characters to life, and really giving personality to each person in the book. Loved this book by Addison Cole, she is such a fun author that never disappoints!

Another hit!

4-4.5 stars. *UPDATED* I just listened to this in audiobook format. This was a super lovely story, even better the second time around. I loved the narrator, She truly gave Bella the spirit that it was shown in the book. I loved it. I felt this audiobook really showed the ‘feeling’ I got when I read the book. Not sure how to explain it, it was a free spirit thing, fun times and letting go. Hard to convey with her voice but the narrator did it! Great experience once again for this series. A great choice of narrator and loved the story… again. *Thank you to the author for providing a copy for which I’m giving my honest opinion* ************************************************** So lovely. This time we have Bella and Caden. They meet under very… awkward circumstances, lol. Still, it sure was an impression for the both of them. ;-) Anyway, I loved Bella and her fun spirit. She had a serious job and lived a serious life, but she let her hair down while at vacation and enjoyed a good prank. I loved how she took this huge risk and moved to the beach. I gotta say, one hell of a move (literally and figuratively). Caden was cool as well, just in a different way. He was a dad, so his life until meeting Bella, was all about his son. It sure took him by surprise to have feelings for someone else. I loved this couple, and how they complemented each other. Not too serious, not too wild. This was a lovely and sweet read, and really looking forward to reading more in this series. *Thank you to ‘Tasty Book Tours’ for providing an ARC in exchange of my honest opinion*
