Addison Cole is the sweet alter ego of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is the sweet edition of Melissa's steamy romance novel Read, Write, Love. 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.
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!
In READ, WRITE, LOVE at SEASIDE...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.

Leanna is spending the summer at the cape hoping to find her passion. She is currently making Jam and is hoping that it may be what she is looking for. What she is not looking for is a man. Kurt Remington is at the Cape to focus on one thing writing. He’s a bestseller, and he stays that way by not letting in any distractions. When Leanna crosses his path, both are surprised at what happens. Neither are looking for love, but they might find it in each other.
In an Oyster Shell – A steamy read that was full of romance that will leave you swooning.
The Pearls – The characters made this story for me. You have free loving messy Leanna who goes where the wind takes her. Compared to studious, clean, orderly Kurt. They couldn’t be more different, but it makes them an amazing couple. They challenge each other in the right ways. They grow together. It made the story for me.
The concept was good. There was a lot of chemistry between the two characters. I think that worked well. Having a writer and a free-spirited Jam maker made for an excellent story. The concept was well executed.
A steamy romance that was more on the sweet side it worked to a point. The romance overall was swoon worthy. I like the personal development the characters go through to make the relationship what it ends up being.
The Sand – Though there were no explicit sex scenes there was still a lot of sexiness, and I think it pushed the envelope on a clean romance.
