Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers #5
Addison Cole
Releasing Oct 25, 2017


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.

Secrets at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Secrets by Melissa Foster.


I love a good second chance love story.  Tony and Amy have both longed for the other for years but no matter how many times that Amy makes a move, Tony resists.  The more of their story and past is revealed the more you realize what they have both gone through.  The hurt and pain that they went through when they were younger was enough to make my eyes tear up.  This summer Amy decides to make one last attempt at seducing Tony and after he turns her down she takes a job in Australia.  With the threat of Amy moving to Australia for two years lingering, Tony decides they should take a chance on each other, if only they can move on from the past pain.
I was so glad with the way the author handled their pain & loss.  I’ve never experienced what Tony and Amy went through but she wrote reactions that were believable and realistic.  The sweet with heat writing puts a new spin on the Seaside Summers series.  The book is so attention grabbing, from page 1 to the end of the book.  The characters are all fun and it’s fun to catch up with the Seaside girls after each book.  You don’t have to read these books in order, each of them can be read standalone.
