World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

This is an amazing book! One of the most emotional books I’ve read by Melissa, but I absolutely adored it! I did see what was going to happen almost immediately, but Melissa told the story with such grace that I couldn’t put the book down until I finished. The audiobook version is great also. The narrator is so easy to listen to and makes the characters come alive.

Seized by Love at Seaside is the 5th book in the Seaside series by Addison Cole and shouldn’t be missed. You meet Lizzie and Blue. Blue has been asking Lizzie out since he met her, but she has a secret and is afraid he will find out. She owns the local flower shop but at night turns into the Naked Baker and hosts a webcast to pay for her sister’s education. She’s done this for years and hasn’t told anyone the secret. Blue Ryder has always loved Lizzie right from the first time he met her a year ago. This book is a great and shouldn’t be missed. It’s a sweet romance with no hot and heavy sex scenes. The narrator in the audiobook does a great job bringing the story to life. Definitely worth taking the time to listen to the audiobook along with reading the book. Both are a different experience but worth it.

This book you won't be able to put down once you start listening. The characters are so well developed that you feel like you are in the story with them. Each time I read or listen to one of Melissa's stories I think it can't get better than the last, but each time I'm proven wrong. Nash and Tempest are two of the most realistic, sexy characters and I was sorry to see the story end. BJ does an excellent job narrating the book too!

Sky and Sawyer were an amazing couple from the start. Their chemistry was of the charts and you could tell that they were made for each other. Just like any relationship they have to work through issues, but as with true soul mates they find a way to compromise to have a life together. It’s a emotional romantic story you shouldn’t miss! The narrator was the perfect pick for this story. She brings the characters to life and makes it enjoyable to listen to the story.

This is the perfect example of opposites attracting. Steve and Shannon couldn’t be more different, but they have amazing chemistry. I highly recommend this audiobook.

This is a wonderfully written love story about second chances and true love. I loved the Seaside series, but this is my favorite book! The chemistry between Amy and Tony is so amazing you can tell that they are made to be together. The narrator keeps you interested and makes it hard to stop listening to the story. This is my first book by this narrator and am looking forward to listening to more. She really brings Melissa’s characters to life.

This is an amazing story about how someone can change when they find true love. Sam has a reputation as a ladies man but before Faith it has never mattered. Faith has been hurt before and isn’t sure if she can trust Sam because of his reputation. The narrator does a wonderful job of making you believe their story. I had a hard time taking breaks and wanted to finish the story as soon as possible because it was so good.

I loved listening to Cole & Leesa’s story. The narrator voice is very soothing and makes it very easy to listen to. You could tell right away that Cole and Leesa were sole-mates. Leesa had come to Peaceful Harbor to escape false accusations in her hometown. She meets Cole and they are immediately attracted to each other. Leesa has to decide whether to put the past behind her and start over with Cole or go back and try and start over in her hometown. As she and Cole become closer it becomes clear to her that Cole is her future.

This audiobook is Nate and Jewel’s story. It is a story about love and loss. Nate has always loved Jewel, but he is older and best friends with her older brother. When her brother is killed in the war Nate feels too guilty to act upon his feelings. But their feelings are so strong that eventually they can’t be kept apart. Will the fact that Nate sent her brother out for the mission that got him killed keep them apart? This is an audiobook worth listening to. The narrator keeps you interested throughout the book.
