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! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.
Whispers at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Whispers. 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 Whispers at SEASIDE…
Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.
With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, beautiful Mira.
A surprise encounter leads to midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?
I am so excited to be a part of the tour for the latest in Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heat series, Whispers at Seaside. This installment centers around Matt Lacroux and the lovely Mira Savage, that works for Matt’s father at the hardware store. After meeting the year before, Matt and Mira became friends and kept in touch while she was in Wellfleet with her son Hagen, and while Matt was working as a professor at Princeton. When Matt decides to take a much-needed sabbatical for the summer, he heads home to work on a book that he has been contracted for – and especially to see Mira.
I have to admit that I didn’t just immediately get sucked into this one right from the start, honestly because I was struggling to recall Matt and Mira from previous books in this series. With that being said, once I figured out who was who, it took no time at all to become completely engrossed in Matt, Mira, and Hagen.
I loved and respected Mira as a single, hard-working mother – especially the way she put Hagen above all else, constantly concerned with his feelings as her and Matt’s friendship started to evolve. But on that same note, I loved how she slowly began thinking of herself also, realizing that she could be a mother and have someone special in her life. Mira’s character was smart, funny, beautiful, caring, but along with that, she was also modest. Matt definitely had an odd, dorky side, but overall, he was just completely sweet, sexy, and irresistible.
Although I loved Matt and Mira, I have to say that little Hagen stole the show in this one. The bright, funny, creative, and intuitive young boy created by Addison Cole was just too adorable for words. I loved his perspective and honestly, as well as, his huge heart. His relationship with Matt, Neil, and the rest of the guys just made him that much cuter!
Once again, Addison Cole has created such a romantic and heart-warming story that still had just enough steamy moments to keep things sexy. Matt and Mira’s story is a beautiful portrayal of love, taking chances, making changes, and the wonderful gift of friends that turn into family. The love in this series just continues to grow and Cole continues to make my heart smile with her creative, romantic, and hilarious tales set in Wellfleet. I know this series will eventually end, but hopefully no time in the near future!
