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!

Seized by Love at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel, Seized by Love (The Ryders). 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 Seized by Love at Seaside....

Lizzie Barber runs a successful flower shop by day and secretly hosts the Naked Baker webcast at night to help pay for her younger sister's education. To keep friends and family from finding out about her sexy secret, she's put her social life on hold until her sister's education is paid off and she can stop filming the webcast.

Blue Ryder fell hard for Lizzie when he met her a year ago, and he hasn't been able to get her off his mind since. Everything about the feisty little brunette cuts straight to his heart. Though Lizzie has turned down every invitation he's extended - Blue is not about to give up trying.

Renovating Lizzie's kitchen brings Blue further into Lizzie's life, and the oven is not the only thing heating up. One night and one powerful kiss changes everything. But when Lizzie's secret is revealed and the safe bubble she's hidden in shatters, true love may not be enough to put the pieces back together.

Fall in love with Blue Ryder

I loved this story. Blue Ryder has been trying to get Lizzie Barber to go out with him for over a year. She has been resisting as she has a secret that she has never shared with anyone. While Blue is fixing her kitchen he asks Lizzie for a date, she finally says yes. She sees that there is a life outside her secret, it also reminds her that she needs to come clean with Blue. When he finds out she is the Naked Baker he cant hide his feelings.
Lizzie then tells her best friend Skye and then her family. Her father stops talking to her. When all seems lost Blue comes back, he cant live without Lizzie. Blue is my new hero. Look forward to seeing more of him and Lizzie in upcoming books. Great narration.

Another sweet story to escape in.

We've met Blue on and off for a while now at Seaside and it is great to see him getting his own story.

Since meeting Lizzie, Blue Ryder has not stopped thinking about her. He's been friends and tried to get close over time, but to no avail. Blue gets turned down by Lizzie regularly and is at a loss as to why. He takes on the job of renovating her kitchen in the hope it will bring them closer together. He has had his heart broken in the past, and he hopes that Lizzie wouldn't do that to him.

Lizzie runs a successful flower shop, but to help pay for her younger sisters college education, Lizzie has had to come up with other means of making money. Her idea, The Naked Baker, is a huge success and with her business skills, Lizzie ensures that her sister has all the help she needs for college. However, Lizzie has paid a price. She has decided to put her social life on hold as she doesn't think she can let people into her life until she can stop the webcast.

The status quo is rocked by a powerful kiss one night, and everything changes, bubbles burst and secrets are revealed. Will love be enough to put it all back together?

This is yet again written so sweetly, that you cannot help but fall in love yourself. If you want a place to escape to, I cannot recommend Seaside enough.

Melissa Moran narrates this story beautifully, and makes it so easy to listen too. I love listening to my favourite authors, as it means I can listen while I'm supposed to be working or they make car journeys so much more fun! If you haven't tried an audio book, give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

So Much Love!

Addison Cole wrote a clean and captivating story with this book. I love it when an author allows the listen's imagination to take over for scenes behind closed doors. The premise of the Naked Baker was great. I love how selfless Lizzie was to provide her sister with the education she wanted. The relationship of Blue and Lizzie was one of friends to lovers, which is a favorite genre of mine. I loved Blue's pursuit of Lizzie. Lizzie had much to deal with in this book, her parental approval/disapproval was huge motivation for her to succeed. Melissa Moran performed the book beautifully with her eloquent narration and appropriate emotions. Love is the recurring theme in this book, and one feels good listening. The added humor in the story was great. I loved the friends help around the cabin.

A fight to the finish.

Lizzie is stubborn. Blue is determined. Seized by Love at Seaside is a fight to the finish. Cole explores the metamorphasis of friendship as it blossoms into love. From the heated exchanges to the stubborn pride, sparks are forever flying. Blue and Lizzie are as temperamental as they are adorable. Through it all, love is the force that drives all the drama.
