Publisher Description

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! 

Embraced at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Embrace. 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. PLEASE NOTE: This is true “sweet with heat” and Jana and Hunter’s story begins with a large dose of steam. It is the steamiest in the series, and remains true to the characters' personalities. 


After working hard all day creating his beautiful metal sculptures, Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot babe–or two. But after spending a handful of nights with smart, sassy, and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana’s had a string of bad relationships, and there’s only thing she’ll commit to–not committing.

Passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she’s sure he can’t meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

Jana and Hunter, Five Giant Stars!

Jana and Hunters relationship started out as something that was SUPPOSED to be light and easy and shifted into something more than that. But of course we all know that Addison Cole has the innate ability to make sure you’re addicted from the get go with characters that are relatable and people you want to be a part of your life.

The audible version of this book was great! Maxine and Joe are two narrators that I could listen to over and over again. Dual narration really adds so much to the story because nothing beats a male voice. Swoon. I drive quite a bit and Addisons stories make the trips even more enjoyable.

This was the story of Hunter and Jana. Hunter is an amazingly talented artist who works with his brother making custom metal sculptures. Hunter has always been a player. He’s never been a one woman kind of guy and he doesn’t do relationships. Then there’s Jana. She was hurt by guys she dated when she was younger and has decided that she’s not cut out for relationships. She likes to live life to the fullest. She loves her job as a dance instructor, she enjoys boxing with her brother, and she misses her time at the theatre and hopes to get back to it someday. With everything going on in her life, the last thing she has time for is men. But for some reason, she always ends up going home with Hunter. They start off bickering over just about any topic, but end up tearing up the sheets by the end of the night! Over time, Hunter realizes that Jana is different than anyone else he’s ever known and that his feelings for her are more than just friendship. Jana doesn’t make it easy for him though. She’s so worried about getting in a relationship and having it end badly, that she fights Hunter at every turn. But Hunter doesn’t give up easily. He realizes that what they have is worth fighting for.

Love Jana and Hunter

Hunter Lacroux and Jana Garner are definitely one intriguing couple. I truly enjoyed watching these two dance around the fact that they are truly meant to be together. Once Hunter realizes his true feelings for Jana were more than being friends with benefits, he was persistent in getting her to admit she wanted him. Jana’s past definitely colored her view on relationships, but I’m glad she finally decided to take the leap and go all in with Hunter. It was also nice to see our friends we’ve gotten to know. There was a quote I thought was really touching, “Love isn’t about having all the answers. It’s about not caring if you don’t, because what happiness really comes down to is knowing that you don’t need answers if your heart is full of the person you cherish most.” I listened to this as an audio book which was narrated by the duo of Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden. This was my first audio book with dual narration and I really enjoyed it. It was a nice addition to have a male voice to listen to as well and in my opinion Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden work really well together.
