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!

Lovers at Seaside, by Addison Cole, is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Lovers. The story conveys all the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In Lovers at Seaside:

After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.

Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn - and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.

When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the chemistry between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.

Delightful listen during busy commute

Lovers at Seaside is the perfect audiobook to get hooked on whilst travelling to and from work. It was a great listen and I love the narration.

As with all Addison Cole's sweet summer romances, I had been eagerly awaiting its release and I was not disappointed.

I was intrigued by Parker and found that I took a while to warm to her, but her story 'orphaned turned actress' was inspiring and I could relate to her journey to overcome grief and the stages that she was going through wanting to shut out the world. I loved the relationship that she had forged with Burt and the bond they share (a good twist to the story!)

Grayson was charmingly endearing whilst also knowing what he wanted. I thought he was the perfect match for the heroine and admired his hardworking, and true 'family man' nature. He has a big heart and was definitely easy to fall in love with.

The audiobook contains the usual quirky humour of Addison Cole and once again enabled me to learn more about my other favourite seaside girls like; Amy, Bella and Jenna etc. I love being catapulted into the world of the Seaside girls, it makes me feel like part of their world.

This book is a must for all romance lovers and for people who like to get engrossed in series. You will not be disappointed!

WOW!!!

WOW.....

Such a sweet and emotional romance.

The way Grayson is with Parker is so sweet and I am officially in love with my new audiobook boyfriend ;)

I love how their relationship develops and how their characters grow, Grayson and Harper are the couple who you can imagine sitting surrounded by grandchildren and still madly in love. Their audiobook made me cry but also made me laugh at the same time. I didn't want the audiobook to end.

Addison has this way of pulling her readers into her audiobooks with each sentence, that is why she is one of my favourite authors.

I love listening to audiobooks where you here about past characters and Lovers at Seaside is no exception and best yet.... there is more to come!!!

I cannot stop listening to Addison's books and don't think I ever will, a brilliant author with a brilliant imagination :)

Another sweet story to escape in.

I loved this story. Addison has written yet another beautiful, love story to escape into. One thing I really like about this audio version, is the use of two narrators. I find it works really well.

This particular story is about Parker Collins, a beautiful, successful actress, and Grayson Lacroux, a metalwork sculptor. After communicating for months on a project via email, Grayson accidentally comes across Parker at her Wellfleet home, when she has come back to mourn the loss of the only family she's known. The embarrassment of Grayson discovering her in a grief-induced drunken spiral, leads Parker to pull back from the attraction she's been fighting for almost a year. As Parker starts to heal and find answers, Grayson feels the connection growing again, but will it be given enough time to prosper.

Beautifully written and a loving, sweet tale. Enjoy :)

Great Story


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

AUDIO VERSION

I loved this sweet with heat story about Parker and Grayson, narrated superbly by Lucy Rivers and Aiden Snow. I found myself laughing or smiling while listening to this book. And yes, I shed a few tears as well. Parker is hiding out at Seaside as she grieves the death of her mentor. Letters she discovered after his death drove her to Seaside. Grayson has been emailing with Parker as he creates ironwork for her various foundations. He stops at the foundation home only to discover Parker is there. He tries to help her with some issues but he also wonders if any relationship will develop as a result of their emails. And this book truly has an unexpected twist. It truly is a beautiful story.

Another 5 stars for Addison!

I have never found an author that I consistently love every single thing they write to the extent that this has happened with Addison. I was immediately captured by Parker and the struggles that she faced to be what others expected of her. I am not an actress but I understand the need to put on a public face. Grayson, oh how I have been looking forward to his story. He is such a perfect match for Parker and I loved watching them grow together. I appreciated the insight into the relationship that was building from afar prior to the beginning scenes of this book. It helped me anticipate how amazing things would be if these to followed their feelings!

I smiled, laughed, cried, and felt the flutters of anticipation throughout the entire book. Thank you Addison for another amazing story! I listened to this book in one sitting as I found myself unable to stop.

Loss leads to a forever love

Audible Review - I loved getting to listen to Lovers at Seaside. I had previously read the book and really enjoyed the dynamics between the characters but it was the narration that really brought the story to life for me. I will totally be listening to this story again.
Book Review - Parker Collins never had much support growing up and honestly prefers to be alone as much as possible because of fear of being hurt. Hunter Lacroux on the other hand comes from a family that is always around and always supporting each other. When these two opposites meet it wasn't immediately love at first sight but instead the start to a budding romance. Parker lost the closest thing to a father figure, Bert, at the opening of the story and when Hunter finds Parker surrounded in junk food and alcohol at her seaside escape this is when the relationship between the two really becomes a possibility. Pick up this love story and find out about the details between Bert and Parker and Bert's estranged brother along with the intimate relationships found in the Lacroux family. You will not want to put this book down.

Definitely recommend!

Lovers at Seaside is the ninth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series. Grayson and Parker kept up communication even though they were miles apart. Suddenly Parker is no longer responding. He finds her wallowing in grief, with a plan to carry out. He decides he is not going to leave her side, and what ensues is a tale of heartache, love, devotion, and secrets revealed. This is one of those books that sucks you right in, and I enjoyed listening to this narrator. I definitely recommend it.

One of my favorites by Addison Cole!

Grayson Lacroux and Parker Collins have spent the last year emailing each other, who knew the emails would lead to more. I loved getting to know Parker (Polly) and her history and of course Grayson is right there in the thick of things as well. Parker has a very sad past and when Grayson finds her she has hit rock bottom. Grayson is there for her and helps her deal with her loss and all the challenges yet to come. This book has everything – friendship, family, love, and forgiveness. What more could you want and of course Christmas is the finishing touch. This was a great audio book to listen to narrated by the duo of Lucy Rivers and Aiden Snow. I’ve really come to enjoy listening to duo narrators and thought these two did a really great job bringing one of my favorite Addison Cole books to life.

Loved it

Parker and Grayson have been contacting one another online for months and end up developing feelings for one another. Suddenly Parker goes quiet for a while and Grayson finds her grieving the death of a loved one. Now that they are meting in person those feelings they had while long distance is coming full force with two and they can't help but fall for one another. Both have completly different lives and need to figure out how a relationship would work out.

I loved this book the first time I read it but it's even better getting a voice for the characters. I was able to listen though audiobook and it was a whole lot better experiance for me. What I love about having access to this audiobooks is that I was able to continue throughout my day and listen to a great book while I was at it and I enjoyed myself.

As for the book I loved how well meaning and supportive Grayson was and he was there to help her through the grief and making sure that she wasn't just dealing with things on her own. But he wasn't the only one, he introduced her into the fold of his friends and family and they were all there for eachother and it was nice seeing that. I loved how backstories unfolded in this story, getting to learn more about Grayson and Parker with each page. I loved that attraction between the two and if you readers are anything like me and love books with romance, with a bit of steam, a clean romance you'll like this book. I pretty much spent my whole morning reading this book and I really enjoyed myself and think you readers will too. If you love a good romance then Id recommend you to read this book but even better to read the previous books as well (or for an even better experiance get the Audiobooks). Each are a standalone but the previous characters do make an appearance in this book as well.

I loved this!

In this book, we have Grayson, an ironworker from the Cape, Parker, an actress from California, and a big, loveable dog named Christmas. This is an interesting group that comes together after Grayson has won a contest featuring his work. With lots of cute, adorable babies, the funny ladies of seaside, and their hot, sexy men, you know this book is going to be sweet with heat, and it is. I loved this book from the beginning, all the way to the end. I had read the book earlier, and then listened the audiobook. Lucy Rivers and Aiden Snow, as narrators just added to the wonderful book written by Addison Cole. I enjoyed it again, through their voices.

Grayson and Parker's turn

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW…
I have grown to appreciate the dual narrator aspect of listening to a story that I have already love. Hearing a woman tell the story of the female character and a man tell the male side of the story just enhances the story. Listening to a story that I have already read makes the story come to life in a new way, there are emotions that I missed or didn’t quite understand when reading but hearing the story brings those emotions to life for me. Audiobooks are the perfect distraction for me while having to do everyday work around the house, working out at the gym, or just driving around doing errands. It breaks up the humdrum of everyday activities and makes me want to find time to listen.

EBOOK REVIEW…
Have you ever started a book and known from the very first pages that this couple MUST be together? That is what I felt when Grayson walks in on Parker in a candy eating, watching a scary movie, and getting drunk. There is no judgment, no harsh words, just concern, understanding, and acceptance. He is the forever gentleman taking care of this woman that he only knows through emails in a time when she is so alone. SIGH… what an amazing man.

I loved the Bert and Abe storyline. Bert, the man Parker thought of as a father, knew exactly what he was doing by leading Parker to Abe. While Abe is a mean, crabby, old man he opens his heart to Parker and Grayson. Abe’s death leads to a happily ever after for Parker which is exactly what she deserved. I love that Grayson was with her every step of the way.

Addison Cole is talented in her writing. She has a knack for her wonderful seaside settings, amazing characters, and sweet storylines. The settings are described in such detail that they are easy to picture, making the reader feel as if they are there with the characters. The characters are fun, sweet, and real. They end up being friends of the reader while taking the reader on their amazing life journeys. And the storylines…oh so sweet. The attention to the little details pull the reader right into the book and never let them go. Even when the last word is read I continue to think about their story and wonder what will happen next in this series.

I am a HUGE fan of the Sweet with Heat series and am always excited when another book is being released. With each book, I get to know new characters, catch up with some old favorites, and revisit some of my favorite book places.

Parker and Grayson

What a story. Rich with emotions.....love and a bit of a tear jerker. Parker is in need to love and Grayson is just the man to love her. The audiobook is a wonderful listen!
