Lovers at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 9) by [Cole, Addison]
NEW RELEASE........ 

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.

In Lovers at SEASIDE… 
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 by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Lovers. 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.

My thoughts:

Lovers at Seaside is the "sweet" version of Melissa Foster's Seaside Lovers.  It's the same story, but without the explicit love scenes and harsh language.  It's not exactly a clean read, but less of an erotic read.  This is the ninth book in the series and is Parker and Grayson's story.  For the record, I hadn't read Seaside Lovers before reading this one.

I thought this was  sweet romance.  I liked the couple featured.  They had gotten to know each other through e-mails for months before finally get to meet.  Because of this, their HEA wasn't too quick for me .  I also liked the little mystery and loved how it all worked out. 

While the story did work well as a stand alone, I did kind of also feel like I was walking into the middle of a soap opera and was playing catch up.  There ware a lot of characters and relationships mentioned from other books .  It was a lot to keep track of and I almost wish I hadn't come into the series at book #9.  While I didn't mind the "sweet with heat" style, I think I ultimately prefer this author's more erotic stories.  For me, there was the heat without the payoff because of the fade to black  bedroom scenes.  It's not a bad thing, I just prefer the other style more.

Definitely give this one a shot, especially if you like a cleaner romance.  You won't be sorry.
