Publisher's 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.

Sweet romance

Kurt Remington is a novelist who is always focused and always on time for his deadlines. Leanna Bray is a free spirit who sells jellies/jams and has no order in her life and nothing is on time. When Leanna shows up in front of Kurt's beach house searching for her dog who ran off in to the ocean he reluctantly goes and helps her, not knowing his life will never be the same. Kurt and Leanna have an instant attraction and you can feel their chemistry building throughout the book. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is a sweet, fun loving book. You can feel the attraction Kurt and Leanna have without any graphic sex scenes. What an enjoyable, easy read!
Melissa Moran brought this book to life. I enjoy listening to her narrate the story.

Melissa Moran brings rich character to life . . .


Melissa Moran gives a performance that make the rich character that Addison Cole have created take on a new life. They come off the pages with the tone laid out by Moran's voice. The audio was clean, smooth, and allowed for play speed to be increased and or decreased with ease and clarity.

The sweet, innocent, less provocative, yet still fulfilled romance of an author that I have loved for here characters both supporting and primary, story line, and the romance journey. There was less of the steam but a good clean read that can be read by beginning romance readers. I have no issue at all giving this book to my daughter to read. She loves romance and having a clean romance that still engages the mind and the senses without the overload on language and explicitly makes me still feel good. Kurt and Leanna still have that romantic heat that's cleaner, sweeter, and appropriate for more readers to enjoy. The read was still enjoyable and to be honest if I hadn’t read the original publication. I would not have missed the parts that are now missing. The romance still there. The passion between opposites. Still there. The great writing still there. All just aimed more toward a more innocent, sweeter crowd.

Calm & Chaotic

I absolutely adore the way Leanna just crashes into Kurt's methodical life and turns it all upside down! They balance each other out in such a beautiful way, with Leanna getting Kurt to be more spontaneous and live more and Kurt getting Leanna to be more focused and their love is just so beautiful. I loved hearing this story and recommend it.

I Loved It

Authoraholic meets no boundaries Jam Maker…….
When Kurt rescues Leanna and her dog from the ocean the attraction hits him hard and that attraction was instant. Talk about two people who are complete opposite. Kurt is a neat freak and Leanna is messy.
This book is such a sweet story with a HEA. The narration is by Melissa Moran. I adore listening to audio books. It makes my commute to work go by quick.

Simply Irresistible.

Leanna and Kurt have nothing in common. He's an organizer, she's a mess. He's reserved, she's loud. Yet somehow they work. They bring out the best in each other, even at their worst. Addison Cole proves that sometimes less is more. Simply irresistible.

Sooo Lovely!

4.5 stars.

*UPDATED*

I recently also listened to this in audiobook format.

It was better the second time around to revisit this story. I LOVED the narrator, she was just like I expected Leanna to sound, giving life to this character with all the emotions and ups and downs in it.

It’s odd to read a book and then hear it come to life in an audiobook, lol. It’s the characters come to life! And this doesn’t disappoint… at all.

It was a fun experience, one I’ll revisit in the future. I highly recommend this book and audiobook.

*Thank you to the author for providing a copy for which I’m giving my honest opinion*

**************************************************

This was the perfect romance for the weekend.

Here we meet Kurt and Leanna, two opposite personalities that in the end, have a LOT in common. :-)

I loved Leanna and her carefree spirit, yeah, she seemed a bit too much in my eyes, but it was a great complement to Kurt’s more reserved personality. I loved the way she looked at life, however, it didn’t mean that she didn’t have doubts about her path in life. I could totally relate to Leanna in that regard, it’s hard sometimes to find a path that you feel passionate about, and not just something that you’re good at. I enjoyed her time with her friends as well, and Pepper! what a lovely little thing, though quite a handful, lol.

As for Kurt, he was a good character as well, he just needed to loosen up like whoa. I love tidiness and order, but I can make a mess from time to time. This guy, though, oh boy. Which is why I loved Leanna and Pepper in his life, he really needed a little mess. And what better than a dog, lol.

I really enjoyed these two, and how they brought each other’s ‘other side’. It was a super fun and lovely read, perfect for a quiet weekend.

Fun Flirty Read at Seaside!

Such a fantastic book! I had first read the kindle book, but decided to listen to the audio book . Even though I had obviously read it before this, the audio books are such a fantastic change up from sitting down and reading them yourself. Melissa Moran was a fantastic Narrator and really brought the characters to life. I really enjoyed the Audible version and will definitely be checking out more Seaside books by Addison Cole!***

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.

When opposites attract!

Wow, Kurt and Leanna could not be more different, but wow, sparks when they come together! Kurt is quiet and reserved, and strives to spend long periods of time writing...alone. Leanna is spotanteous, scattered and tends to fly by the seat of her pants. Their meeting is by chance but once it happens, there is no denying that they want to be together. This was my first experience with Melissa Moran as a narrator but I enjoyed her work. She was able to bring these characters to life through her voice!

I highly recommend both Addison Cole as well Melissa Moran!

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.
