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.

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.

User reviews about this book

  • One of my favorites!

    By Michelle Pierce
    This is definitely one of my favorites from Addison Cole. I always love going back to Seaside to visit our friends. I’ve always liked the friendship that Tony and Amy have shared but now to find out their history and the guilt they both carry around, that was heartbreaking. I was glad that Tony took the initiative to salvage their friendship. It was hard to read about their past and why Amy pushed Tony away and how she dealt with everything herself. It made me so happy that they took a chance and talked and finally talked about what tore them apart so many years ago. They were both wanting a clean slate so they could be together without the ghosts from their pasts and they definitely accomplished that. I always appreciate not only the girls going to bat for each other but also the guys being there for Tony as well. The way this ended, what a perfect way with many happily ever afters. This was an audio book I listened to which was narrated by Melissa Moran. This is definitely one of my favorite books she’s narrated. I loved all the emotion she put into this and she had me crying more than once. She did an amazing job.
  • Great Story!

    By Mlschuck
    This is a wonderfully written love story about second chances and true love. I loved the Seaside series, but this is my favorite book! The chemistry between Amy and Tony is so amazing you can tell that they are made to be together. The narrator keeps you interested and makes it hard to stop listening to the story. This is my first book by this narrator and am looking forward to listening to more. She really brings Melissa’s characters to life.

  • Second Chance

    By ShellBooks66
    This was a sweet heartwarming sometimes heartbreaking second chance for two people who have always loved one another as friends or maybe a little more. They have been friends for a long time with a secrect that they have never shared with anyone. Amy Maples has carried a torch for Tony for as long as she can remember, now with most of her girl friends falling in love she wants that too. Tony Black as always cared for Amy but is unsure how to handle his feeling and not sure he has much to offer her. I loved this book Addison Cole has really captured the feelings of these characters, you can really tell when they are happy, sad and so much more. Once you start to this sweet with heat story you will not want to put it down.

  • Sweet, Sassy & Sensational!

    By Astroyic
    This was such a Fantastic story about love and friendship, I Loved it. Such fun, sassy characters, the girls in this book really brought such special fun, and some great craziness to this story. Amy Maples has been in love with Tony Black since she was six years old. Their families, as well as several other families, spent every summer in the cottages at Seaside. This summer they came together to celebrate a wedding and it was possibly the last summer for Amy, because she has been offered a job that would take her far away, to Australia for two years. What was she going to do? Tony and her had been best friends, for so long, but she wanted more, she just couldn’t see herself with anyone but him. Tony was a famous surfer as well as a motivational speaker, he spends his time travelling either for competitions or speaking engagements, but every summer he returns, to the cottages to spend time with everyone. Amy has to try to get Tony to see her in a different light, so he will give them a chance. So with her friends help, they devise a plan for seduction. But there are things that her friends don’t know about, and Tony and Amy will have to work through their past to get to the other side for a chance at lasting love. Loved this story so much, I laughed, I cried and my heart swelled with happiness. Another fantastic story by Addison Cole. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
  • Loved Secrets at Seaside

    By Grinandstampit
    I love this series. Throughout the previous books we have learned that Amy Maples has a thing for professional surfer Tony Black. Over the years Tony has protected her and taken care of her but not fallen for her. But this beautiful story sheds light on a friendship that has survived challenges. Amy has been offered a job in Australia and she needs to know if her and Tony can move beyond friendship before she accepts the position. In the process Tony and Amy examine their past. Addison Cole weaves a tale of a young love filled with a few unexpected twists and turns as only she can. Come along on this beautiful journey. 5 stars to Addison Cole.
