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.

  • Great 👍🏻 Friends Forever

    By GrannyG70
    This is such a refreshing, good time read! I didn’t put the book 📚 down until I read it all in one uninterrupted reading! Nice location to go along with the story. It encompasses parts of the ladies lives from childhood to adulthood. The reference from earlier years to adulthood gives a great reference to their long term friendships.
  • Sweet with Heat starts with a bang!

    Kurt and Leanna are the definition of opposites attract and you will find yourself rooting for their romance. Leanna is a bit of a free spirit looking to find her way and Kurt is a world-renowned neat, organized author. Throughout the sweet story read how they balance and learn from each other and realize how they both enrich each others lives. Also, you get to learn some of the personalities of the other Seaside girls and I cannot wait to hear more of their stories. Another great part of this story is it is sweet and has less explicit sexual scenes, if that isn't your thing then Addison Cole has your back - you will get a really amazing story and not have to read any of that and the story does not even need it! Oh, and my favorite character in the whole story is Pepper - and I think you will love Pepper too! Love this beginning of the Seaside series by Addison Cole and I cannot wait for the next installments!
  • Love at the beach

    By Rhonda Hed
    This is a lovely story. Award winning author Kirk Remington has come to the cape for the summer to work on his novel. Leanna Bray has spent summers at the cape for years. This summer Leanna want to expand her jam & jelly business. Kirk is a “everything has a place and is in its place” type of guy. Leanna is a “ where ever it falls it stays” type of girl. Two totally opposites. But opposites attract. This is a must read

    The book that was missing in the series Love in Bloom Seaside Summers by Melissa Foster. You make me look all my book because I now I read this series finally i now what happened 🤔if you don't want to wait look for LOVE IN BLOOM SEASIDE but you have to read this one first.
  • Loved it!!

    By KindleKat64
    I adored this book! Kurt & Leanna's love story is so sweet and genuine; you can't help but to fall in love with them. They are just so real, so honest and just so dang lovable. I couldn't get enough of them. Leanna's friends are also a hoot. Thank goodness for Pepper, Leanna's labradoodle as they may not have met without Kurt having to jump into the ocean to save him. As a huge romance lover, I have to say that every now and then it is nice to read a romance that isn't buried beneath a lot of sex. It is implied in this book, just not described. Yet the chemistry between Kurt & Leanna is just as hot. Awesome debut for Addison Cole! I look forward to more from her!
  • Read, Write, Love at Seaside City by Addison Cole

    By North of Disneyland
    I loved this book! Hugh the staid, stuck in a rut, "neat nick" Author and the flighty, "what shall I do?", free spirit and not overly modest make a perfect pair! Opposites attract, right? It takes him a little while to realize he likes having her around and she thinks he can't be interested in her but, they sort things out. They find that they fill the holes in their personalities with the other one! A very lovely book which peels back each of their layers and you can see them begin to grow! The characters are terrific and also, her friends characters and of course, we can not forget Pepper, an all white dog, how Leanna came up with that name! The book was humorous (laugh out loud), and a few sad tears but, the rest were happy. I would definitely suggest getting this book and your day will be happier! I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy and gave an honest review.

    Bestselling Author Melissa Foster has tweaked some of her steamy books into a milder, sweet edition under her new alter ego Addison Cole. This one is the milder version of Melissa's original READ, WRITE, LOVE novel. It's a sexy, sweet connection and brings an exciting summer fling to life! Great characters & a really fun story! Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives a strict and regimented life. His writing is what he lives and breathes for, and he doesn't let anything get in it's way. He's spending the summer at his cottage in Wellfleet, Massachusetts finishing up his current novel when he's introduced to the whirlwind that is Leanna Bray in a wild and unpredictable way! Leanna Bray kind of lives life by the seat of her pants! She flits from one place and one job to another trying to find what fulfills her in life and her current foray is a jam and jellies business! She stumbles upon Kurt and her wild and free attitude intrigues him. He shouldn't want this type of disruption ... but want her he does! Will a summer fling be just what they both need or will she be too much a distraction to him? And when they consider the future, what does it look like for her?
  • Highly recommend this sweet romance.

    By Grinandstampit
    Wow, what a sweet romance this is! Kurt Remington is swoon worthy, organized and a writer. Leanna Bray is cute, searching for a career and doesn't plan a thing. But a chance meeting between the two leads to a whirlwind romance. I loved these characters. Each has their own quirks but the relationship unfolds as they learn more about themselves and each other. I love the innocence of this Addison Cole romance.
  • A luscious summer romance

    By Nanakay2
    This is the first book I have read by Addison Cole and I really enjoyed it. It was a great book to read to start my summer reading season as it is set in the small beach town of Wellfleet. Kurt Remington is an author who writes dark, suspenseful mysteries. He lives in New York but likes to spend time on the Cape during the summer for a change of pace. He is very detail oriented and has a set daily schedule for his writing and his life is neat and orderly. His writing is interrupted one day by a beautiful woman chasing after her dog in the waves and the surf. He tries to ignore them but is intrigued by Leanna and comes to her rescue. Leanna Bray is the antithesis of Kurt… she is flighty, forgetful, unorganized and full of life. Leanna freely admits that one of her “biggest skills is being discontent.” She is spending the summer trying to decide how to get her jam making business off the ground. She lives her life loud and large and Kurt is drawn in by her spell. Their attraction grows as they spend time together and Kurt begins to loosen up while Leanna draws on his strengths to try to bring some order into her life. They are a fun couple together and I enjoyed watching their relationship grow stronger. Neither was looking for love but love found them! I am definitely looking forward to reading more from this author.
