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!

Hearts at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times best-selling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel, Seaside Hearts. 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.

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident - except when she's around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother's new cougar lifestyle, Jenna's giving up on Peter - and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He's looking forward to seeing his friend, Jenna, a welcome distraction who's so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete's true feelings, and he's unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete's not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux - the most alpha male she's ever seen - or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Loved the story, narrator was difficult for me.

Jenna has been lusting after Pete for years and this summer is finally her year. Pete and Jenna both have family issues yhat instead of pushing them apart actually bring them together. Pete's devotion to his family is incredibly admirable and you know that he is stronger together with Jenna.

I had difficulty getting into the narration of this novel, Melissa as the narrator did not have enough emotion for me and felt very monotone to me. Loved the content, just had difficulties listening to it because of the narration.

You will love how Jenna becomes a marshmallow princess! I have fallen in love with Jenna and Pete, they may be my favorite Seaside couple so far.

Sometimes you just have to let things go…

Jenna Ward is tired of being ignored every summer by handsome boat refurbisher, Pete Lacroux. Although Pete has been confused by why Jenna is outgoing and confident with everyone else in the little town of Wellfleet but shy & tongue tied around him. Besides Pete figures his life is too complicated by his alcoholic father to have a relationship. However, when Jenna decides she is moving on with a sexy young construction worker, Pete realizes he can’t deny his feelings for Jenna anymore. Will Pete get his life back? Can Jenna finally bag her man? See them get their HEA.
Addison Cole has another hit on her hands. I love this series and all the hilarious antics of all these characters. Melissa Moran did a fabulous job narrating this book. How she can keep all the different characters voices straight is beyond me. I highly recommend this one.

so flipping cute

Hearts at Seaside tells a story of love that has been simmering for years but has yet to reveal itself with both parties. I so understand the back story of Jenna and Pete. Both really have feelings for the other but neither has ever acted on or discussed those feelings with the other. Basically, they were hidden. When Jenna arrives for her summer, she is bound and determined to let Pete ignore her all he wants. She is going to go out of her shell and find another man. Except when she does, Pete goes berserk, not really crazy but decides he has to let her know how he really feels.

Moran breathes new life into a beloved tale.


No matter how many times I read Hearts at Seaside it continues to grab at my heart. Great characters, a beautiful story and a few lessons in life along the way.  This time around I decided to try a little audio stimulation, to maybe experience romance in a different way.  What I found is a deeper connection. Melissa Moran breathes new life into words that were already practically leaping off the page.  There are also parallels between Jenna and Pete's uncertainties and the lives of their parents.  Audio puts a different spin on beloved tale.

Jenna + Pete = Perfectly Golden Brown

Jenna and Pete had known each other forever but of course Jenna’s fears kept her from pursuing a relationship with Pete. Pete on the other hand was always attracted to Jenna but was worried that Jenna might not be just right because of her fears. After a few chance encounters including a bonfire where Pete perfects his ability to make the perfect golden brown marshmallow the love between these two blooms. I listened to this story in one sitting. So worth my 7 hrs. Loved it!!

Jenna and Pete

Jenna and Pete are two wonderful souls who need a little push. I love this story because unlike many other romance stories this one feels real! It will resonate with people of all ages and walks of life! The narration is good BUT not my favorite;). It is so hard to have a woman do the male voice BUT at least it is not a male doing the female voice(that really bothers me for some reason). Overall a wonderful book to listen to as you drive or hang out at your beach/pool! Enjoy!

#marshmallowprincess

Jenna Ward and Pete Lacroux have been friends although secretly crushing on each other. Jenna gets tongue tied around Pete and Pete has family issues that keep him from being able to be with someone. Jenna has decided to give up on Pete and find someone else, who knew a little competition would be the wake-up call Pete needed. I loved to see the two of them dance around each other and I was glad when they finally got together. Come to find out it wasn’t only Pete dealing with family issues with his father, Jenna was dealing with issues with her mother as well. I always enjoy the friendships the ladies have and how they are always there for each other plus Jenna with her precise marshmallow instructions was awesome. This was a really good book and I was glad to see how everything ended up. I listened to this via an audio book which was narrated by Melissa Moran. I really enjoyed listening to this narrator and thought she did a great job with the characters, I was even tearing up a couple of times. It was great to just sit back and have the story brought to life.

What a great read!

This is the story of Jenna and Pete. Jenna has ordered a secret crush on Pete for years. And it took her dating someone else for Pete to realize that he was in love with her. But will their families issues make a long term relationship unobtainable.

Addison Cole has woven another amazing tale of everlasting love.

But my very favorite part of this book is the Marshmallow Princess and the very detailed directions for a perfect golden brown marshmallow.

I dare you not to smile when you listen to that part. I enjoyed the narrator's voice. She does a great job making sure you know when it is a different character. I can't wait for more of these sweet with heat books.
