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!

Read, Write, Love at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling 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.


Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve 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.

Kurt and Leanna

Book 1 in the Seaside Summer s series by Addison Cole. We meet the gang at Seaside, a collection of cottages on Wellfleet. First up is Kurt and Leanna. Kurt is a thriller writer and Leanna makes jam. Kurt is calm and organized while Leanna runs on chaos. Is it true that opposites attract? And is that enough? Throw in some really good friends and a little Pepper, and enjoy the fun!

I listened to an audio of this story narrated by Melissa Moran. She does a wonderful job with the voices and is entertaining and refreshing. The clear delivery with emotion and fun evident made this listening experience a fun one.

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 does a great job and definitely brought my favorite book to life for me. She made me want to hop a plane and head to Seaside.
