Blog Tour - Lovers At Seaside
Your next fun, flirty and sweet with heat romance!


Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #9
Addison Cole
Releasing May 9, 2018


After months of long-distance communication, actress Parker Collins and artist Grayson Lacroux finally plan to reconnect in the seaside town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts. But Parker never shows, and weeks pass without a word, leaving Grayson to believe he’s misinterpreted their budding relationship.
Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.
When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the chemistry between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.

Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers) - Addison Cole

Have you ever started a book and known from the very first pages that this couple MUST be together?   That is what I felt when Grayson walks in on Parker in a candy eating, watching a scary movie, and getting drunk.     There is no judgment, no harsh words, just concern, understanding, and acceptance.   He is the forever gentleman taking care of this woman that he only knows through emails in a time when she is so alone.    SIGH… what an amazing man.  


I loved the Bert and Abe storyline.     Bert, the man Parker thought of as a father, knew exactly what he was doing by leading Parker to Abe.   While Abe is a mean, crabby, old man he opens his heart to Parker and Grayson.    Abe’s death leads to a happily ever after for Parker which is exactly what she deserved.   I love that Grayson was with her every step of the way.  


Addison Cole is talented in her writing.   She has a knack for her wonderful seaside settings, amazing characters, and sweet storylines.    The settings are described in such detail that they are easy to picture, making the reader feel as if they are there with the characters.     The characters are fun, sweet, and real.     They end up being friends of the reader while taking the reader on their amazing life journeys.    And the storylines…oh so sweet.     The attention to the little details pull the reader right into the book and never let them go.   Even when the last word is read I continue to think about their story and wonder what will happen next in this series.  


I am a HUGE fan of the Sweet with Heat series and am always excited when another book is being released.     With each book I get to know new characters, catch up with some old favorites, and revisit some of my favorite book places.

Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #9) by Addison Cole
Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers) - Addison Cole


There are many aspects of life we take for granted. Among the most valued is life itself and the time we seem to forget is rapidly slipping away. 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. For Grayson and Parker loss takes their friendship in a new direction. As Parker opens her eyes to what could be with Grayson, love's true meaning becomes crystal clear to her heart. It's about learning to forgive, opening your heart and taking a leap of faith. It's also about doing one last favor for a friend. 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.

Just Not Intriguing Enough to Continue - DNF at 12 Percent
Read, Write, Love at Seaside - Addison Cole

My head was all over the place this weekend. I finished so many books, just felt too lazy to keep updating since most of them ended up being meh reads after finishing my Stephen King book. 

This was free via Kindle so I thought I give the first book in this series (Sweet With Heat #1) a whirl. Too bad that there wasn't a lot there to recommend it for me. I think that the problem was that both characters were boring and I just found myself becoming increasingly annoyed by the heroine who really should not own a dog due to the cavalier way she was going about things.


"Read, Write, Love at Seaside" (that title is making me twitchy) starts with a best-selling thriller author, Kurt Remington being interrupted by a woman who is about to drown trying to rescue her dog. Kurt is annoyed this is taking him out of prime writing time and seriously guys, there is a long sequence of him just listening to her struggle in the surf and I was wondering if the author was going to start off with someone dying or what. When Kurt finally rescues the stranger (Leanna Bray) she and her dog come in and make themselves at home. I just went eh for the first couple of pages hoping to get some sense of spark there or something, but nothing doing. 

Leanna feels like a blank space for Kurt to just have lustful feelings for. I wish I could care about Leanna and her jam making business, but I don't. 

The writing was really what pushed me to DNF this book though. There's no flow. All of the paragraphs are overly long and it's just wall of text coming at you. I felt like the first part of the book was trying to set things up, but it doesn't work that well. The dialogue is a little better, but I found myself becoming annoyed with a side character who acts like it's totally okay to tell two people they should totally be boning (yes that happened).


I was in the mood for a summery type of book, but just decided to let this one go.
