Lovers at Seaside by Addison Cole
Lovers at Seaside - Lucy Rivers,Aiden Snow,Addison Cole

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I liked this one but it wasn't a story that really stood out to me. This is the ninth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but it reads perfectly fine as a stand-alone while readers of the series will enjoy checking in with some of the characters from earlier books. I found this quick and pleasant read and liked the chemistry between the characters.

Parker is an actress taking some much needed alone time after the loss of her good friend and mentor. Her friend, Bert, was like family to her and she now feels alone in the world. Grayson is an artist who has been working on a project for Parker for the past several months. Grayson finds Parker drunk and wants to help her put the pieces back together. Add in Parker's adorable dog, Christmas, and things are looking up.

I liked Parker and Grayson together and I found their relationship to quite authentic. I thought that they had some great chemistry with each other and connected well from the very start. I really didn't see any obstacles to their relationship and honestly, things went really smoothly with the exception of a quick hiccup at the end of the book. In some ways, I would have like to see a bit more drama between these two characters.

This book is narrated by Lucy Rivers and Aiden Snow and it was my first experience with both of their work. I did prefer Aiden Snow's performance in this book and would find that I was a bit disappointed when the narration would change at times. I thought that Lucy Rivers also did a fine job with the story but I found her narration to be somewhat monotonous at times.

I do think that a lot of readers will enjoy this one a bit more than I did. I thought that the characters were very well done but I wish that the book had just a bit more drama to hold my attention.

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author / publicist.

Initial Thoughts
I am somewhere between 3 and fours stars right now. I am going to take a few days before I settle on a final rating. This was good but nothing really stood out to me. There wasn't a lot of conflict and the mystery at the end was very predictable. I did find that I enjoyed Aiden Snow's narration much more than the performance by Lucy Rivers.

Audiobook Review: Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #9) by Addison Cole (Author), Lucy Rivers (Narrator), Aiden Snow (Narrator)
Lovers at Seaside - Lucy Rivers,Aiden Snow,Addison Cole

 

Lovers at Seaside is an amazing tale of life, love and loss. It's also a life lesson: "Make every moment and person in your life count." Addison Cole wraps readers up in a tale of new beginnings and heartbreaking loss. There are moments where the emotion seems larger then the characters, but that's to be expected when looking at greatness. The hardest goodbyes, often bring the sweetest hellos.

A Love So Sweet (Sweet with Heat: The Bradens at Weston #1) by Addison Cole
A Love So Sweet - Addison Cole

 

Max and Treat have a destiny that neither can quite figure out. Love at first sight becomes a heart ache that neither knows how to ignore. A Love So Sweet is the beginning of something special. From topsy turvy to happily ever after. Cole crafts a ride wild enough to keep readers on their toes and sugary enough to run away with their hearts.

Embraced at Seaside by Addison Cole
Embraced at Seaside - Joe Arden,Addison Cole,Maxine Mitchell

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I had a good time with this audiobook. This was a nice quick romance that really grabbed me from the very start. I really didn't want to stop listening and couldn't wait to see Jana and Hunter figure things out. This is the eighth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but it read absolutely fine as a stand alone. Addison Cole's books are the sweet with heat versions of some of Melissa Foster's books. This book is the sweeter version of Seaside Embrace and I found that there were still quite a few steamy scenes to keep things interesting. I am glad that I decided to give this book a try.

This book starts with a bang! At the start of this book we find Jana and Hunter in a morning after situation. They have hooked up a few times but Jana is in a hurry to get out the door. Jana is a very busy woman. She works as a dance instructor, waitress, and trains as a boxer. Hunter is an artist and makes metal sculptures. Neither Hunter or Jana do relationships.

Hunter decides that he wants something more from Jana and makes an effort to be romantic. It was fun watching Jana try to figure out what was going on while Hunter was trying to determine his next move. These two really had a lot of chemistry and seemed perfect for each other. Their personalities meshed almost perfectly. Hunter was so patient with Jana as she worked through some of her issues.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell did a great job with the audio. I really liked the fact that this book used dual narrators to tell the story since I think that works best with dual point of view stories. I think that both of the narrators did a great job with the voices of a somewhat large cast of characters and brought a lot of emotion to the story. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to either of these narrators again in the future.

I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. This was a great romance between two characters that I couldn't wait to watch find their happily ever after with each other. I found this book to have plenty of heat along with some scenes that melted my heart. I cannot wait to read more of Addison Cole's work in the future.

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author / publicist.

Initial Thoughts
I enjoyed this audiobook. Hunter and Jana were great together and I loved watching them try to figure things out. There were a few times that Jana seemed to be almost trying to mess things up but Hunter was patient with her. I think that both of the narrators did a great job with this story and were able to handle a variety of emotions and characters. The only thing that I found a bit confusing on audio was the fact that Jana has a friend named Jenna which was really easy for my old ears to get confused.
