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.

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for--or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella's powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden's loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son--even Bella?

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men. 

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him. 

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

    Read, Write, Love at Seaside You will enjoy Addison Cole's first book. It's sweet and will get you in the mood for summer, the beach and great friends. A great intro into the Seaside gang. Kurt is a writer, Leanna is a free spirit. These two couldn't be more opposite but you can't help but cheer them on. Addison brings out the sweet and sexy without over doing it. Can't wait for the next one. Dreaming at Seaside Back among friends. A sweet read by Addison Cole. This book is about Bella and Caden. Bella is wondering what to do with her life while she is in limbo, and Caden is a sexy cop with a son. They meet while Bella is up to some of her tricks around Seaside. Their chemistry is there from the beginning. If you are look for a sweet summer read this one is for you. Hearts at a Seaside I love the Sweet with Heat series. Jenna and Pete are not exception. I loved Jenna and Pete's story. I've been rooting for them to get together for 2 books now. Jenna knows what she wants and will use what she's got to get it. Pete is a little more skidish. When he finally gives in though, watch out. Their love is truly one of a kind. I love the whole Seaside gang.
  • Great boxed set to binge read!

    I love that I can get Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heat Boxed set to binge read. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is truly a SWEET romance! 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. Dreaming at Seaside is a funny and romantic story featuring Seaside resident Bella. She has an instant attraction to hot police officer Caden Grant, who meets her while she is in a funny and compromising position. Bella is a school teacher from Connecticut who is making major life changes that don't include a relationship. Caden is a single father with a teenage son and all of the typical teenage challenges. Hearts at Seaside truly touched my heart. Jenna has loved Pete for many years but this summer at Seaside she decides to give up on him as he has her strictly in the friend zone. Jenna and Pete each deal with some serious issues while finding their happily ever after.
