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!
Secrets at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Secrets. 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 SECRETS at SEASIDE...
Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.
Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.
The cover attracted me...because I am a bit of a cover snob...I'll admit it...
The synopsis pulled me in so I had to read it...
For some reason what I wasn't expecting was it to be a tear-jerker. Now, I am not one to cry or get choked up but I know a lot of big readers, just within my family and if they were to read this, they would get choked up. So be forewarned, this read can get a bit emotional but, not in a bad way. It added a layer of sensitivity and heart.
I loved the idea of a small group of best friends who make it a tradition to gather at a beloved place to have fun, play in the sun, flirt a little, and just all around a good time. But there is also a secret from Tony's and Amy's past and some turbulence and nervousness with the group of men and women at the Cove. A story mixed with smiles, uncertainty, curiosity, and a little bit of truth and sadness all mixed in a good story. This is the fifth in series and although I wasn't lost in the book, there is absolutely an established story (I am going back and reading the first four!) that would benefit the reader. No, I wouldn't say it is required but I will say it is highly recommended.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
