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!

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

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.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Love it!!!

Where to start with this audiobook.....

Such a sweet, loving, heart melting summer book to listen to.

No matter who you are you can relate to Leanna on some level, I know I can. Her confident and brave nature but underneath still a little unsure of herself. Her relationship with the girls and her relationship with Kurt will have you laughing and awwwing all at the same time.

Kurt.... I want a Kurt ;) I love his caring nature and his patience with Leanna. They are the opposite if each other but perfect on so many levels. Kurt will warm your heart and fast become your audiobook boyfriend.

A sweet, heartfelt book to listen to that I will listen to again and again and again.

Can't wait for more!!

Great Story

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

Read, Write, Love at the Seaside

Read, Write, Love at Seaside is a romantic sweet treat for all chicklit lovers. It is fun, flirty and introduces you to a series you will not want to stop listening to.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review, and I was not disappointed. The narrator is clear, bubbly and really portrays the characters personalities with her tone and voice.

When Kurt Remington escapes to the seaside to get away from the hustle and bustle of his New York city life, he is entangled in a new drama that is 'Leanna Bray'. They say that 'opposites attract' and this case it is certainly true, as Leanna is clumsy, messy and very free-spirited. She brings the fun and the drama and enabled Kurt to unwind.

This audiobook is ideal for anyone who has a busy lifestyle, or would just like to listen to something whilst relaxing. It is fun, flirty and introduces you to the Seaside girls who you will be unable to get enough of. It is worth the listen and worth the money. It was good quality and I am looking forward to listening to more of Cole's work.

Loved it!

A sweet story of love most unexpected. Kurt's world is turned upside down when he helps Leanna. Their chemistry is believable, and I loved this book and the narrator. I definitely recommend this sweet read.

Painful

It was so bad I couldn't make it past but a few chapters. Not believable, poorly written and development of characters lacking. Narration made lead female whiny from the first paragraph.

Very cute summer beach read.

Never having listened to or read Addison Cole before, I was't sure what to expect. This was a cute summer beach read that pits a free spirit with a laced up novelist. Even though this was a "sweet" version of the story, there was still plenty of steam without all the salacious details. I definitely recommend this story for those that enjoy easy- breezy stories that have a happily ever after ending.

Loving Kurt and Leanna!

This is my favorite book from Addison Cole! I’ve fallen in love with Kurt and Leanna and of course Pepper and all our Seaside friends we meet along the way. From the initial scene with Kurt rescuing Pepper and throughout the book, these two are just made to be together. You would think they wouldn’t have anything in common, but these two definitely complement each other. I was excited to see how things played out and was happy with the new venture for not only Leanna but Kurt as well. I listened to this as an audiobook which was narrated by Melissa Moran. I have listened to books narrated by her before and she does a great job and definitely brought my favorite book to life for me. She made me want to hop on a plane and head to Seaside.

Fun and Romantic

After listening to this book, I want to move to the Cape and become part of Leanna's group of fun friends. I also have to wonder if there might be another man around there like Kurt. He is such a wonderful, sexy man. Their relationship is such a sweet romance. It is also very flirty, and with just the right amount of heat that makes our imagination go wild. I loved this book. It was such a fun, but oh, so romantic story. The narrator, Melissa Moran, does an outstanding job with it.

Total opposites

What do you when our total opposite turns out to be the most intriguing woman you ever met?

Leanna Bray has been coming to the Cape since she was a child. She has always loved it there, so she has decided to make the Cape her home with her dog Pepper. Kurt Remington is a best-selling author who has come to the Cape for some peace & quiet so he can finish his latest novel when that peace is suddenly shattered by a woman trying to save her dog for drowning. When Kurt gets down to the beach to try and help, he discovers the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Kurt is the epitome of organized, everything has its place. Leanna is the direct opposite; she keeps her clean laundry in piles. These two opposites are definitely attracted but will that be enough for them to last. I love how they each seem to be exactly what they each need even though they don’t know it.

I listened to this as an audiobook & the narrator, Melissa Moran did an awesome job bringing the story to life. Her voice inflections were amazing, I had no problem differentiating each character even though there were so many different people to voice.

Love comes to Seaside

I loved this book. There was so much fun and entertainment on every page. The narration done by Melissa Moran is hands down amazing, with how she transitions from one character to the next is seamless and the distinction of each is amazing. She adds her own special touch to each character that they really come to life. I quickly fell in love with the Seaside girls...they are fun loving and charismatic and ban together for all the action, they are each other's support system. Toss in a brooding writer and..well we fall in love with him pretty quickly too. His whole world is turned upside down as opposites attract in the best of ways. Leanna can't seem to figure out her life plan and Kurt is anything but living life one moment at a time...he's got all his ducks in a row. When the two come together in an effort to save Pepper never could they have imagined how life would change in an instant. I couldn't put the book down I really enjoyed every last moment. Can't wait for more Seaside romances.

Loved it

Kurt Remmington is a well known author who is a bit too focused on writing to have a life. Then in comes the free spirited Jam making Leanna nearly drowning trying to save her dog. Kurt of course comes in to help her and her dog out. Both are complete opposites and somehow they just click. Neither are looking for love but they sure found it.

I've read this book at least 2 to 3 other times but this time I got the pleasure of having the audiobook with Melissa Moran as narrator and she really just worked well reading Addison Coles books. I found myself even more immersed into the story and reminded myself why I've read this book multiple times. I can't help but love the connection between Kurt and Leanna, they are just so right for each other and help eachother better themselves. Theres Leanna who gets Kurt doing something other then his novel getting him to enjoy life. While Kurt is really supportive in Leanna's Jam make making business taking it to a new level she hasn't really though of. Overall this was a nice little contemporary romance to read around this time since its getting warmer it makes you want to be at the beach looking for those summer vibes. I just really enjoyed this book highly recommend!
