Embraced at Seaside

Book 8, Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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! 

Embraced at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Embrace. 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. PLEASE NOTE: This is true “sweet with heat” and Jana and Hunter’s story begins with a large dose of steam. It is the steamiest in the series, and remains true to the characters' personalities. 

After working hard all day creating his beautiful metal sculptures, Hunter Lacroux likes to unwind with a hot babe–or two. But after spending a handful of nights with smart, sassy, and beautiful Jana Garner, the woman who challenges everything he does and says, Hunter wants more.

As a dancer, boxer, actress, and waitress, Jana is tough, organized, and as dedicated as she is committed. She has to be to maintain her crazy schedule. But when it comes to men, Jana’s had a string of bad relationships, and there’s only thing she’ll commit to–not committing.

Passion ignites every time Jana and Hunter are together, but the closer Hunter gets, the faster Jana runs. When Hunter lays on the charm, Jana throws out a challenge she’s sure he can’t meet, and Hunter steps up to the plate, forcing her to face her hurtful past or let go of him forever.

Jana and Hunter

Jana and Hunter are too sweet! Addison Cole has a way of making you fall in love in a way that is so believable! We all make mistakes, have insecurities and just make stuff up in our heads ;). The audiobook is wonderful! I have been slowly warming up to the narrator and this might be the best yet!!

Embraced at Seaside

Love is Patient, Love is work, Love is worth the wait

Embraced at Seaside is the eighth book in the Sweet With Heat:Seaside Summers Series. Like the seven before it, Addison and her Seaside Girls don’t disappoint!
I love that Addison puts in a disclaimer in the note to readers at the beginning the book...”Please note that this is not an inspirational or wholesome read. This is a true, “Sweet with Heat” and Jana and Hunter’s story begins with a large dose of steam.” This shows how Addison remains true to romance, life and to the characters that lead her to write their love stories.
Jana and Hunter are friends with benefits. Busy people with lives dedicated to their passions, here, dance, teaching dance, acting and boxing. His, art metal sculpture and the ironworking company that he owns with his brother.
Hunter has always had a way with women and could have any woman that he wants, the trouble is that he doesn’t want any until his occasional hook up with Jana has him more than hooked. He decides that he has to make her his own and like most modern day men, turns to the internet for ideas on how to make that happen.
Jana really enjoys the banter that she has with Hunter. She especially enjoys the sex that seems to happen more often than she had planned. Jana has had a more than her share of bad relationship experiences and is afraid to and doesn’t want to let herself open to another. She focuses on letting her frustrations out in her boxing match preparations, only now Hunter seems to be interfering with those as well. She eventually gives in and challenges Hunter to try and Romance her. Their first real date on the beach at sunrise will make the reader sigh and hope for more. The harder Hunter tries the more emotions get brought out by Jana, both characters are surprised at the deepening and extent of their feelings. Reading farther into this book you will laugh, cry, have all of the chest hurting feels that a love story that is worked really hard for has. The story comes to a head when Jana sees the art that Hunter has created using her as his muse. It truly causes her to realize the depth of his feelings. This book is one of the best that Addison has written, it brings real life romance to life and keeps the readers wanting and wondering how she will top this one! Bravo Addison, I can’t wait for the next!
