Author: Addison Cole
Released: Aug 8, 2018
Publisher: World Literary Press
Synopsis: Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned—even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.
Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.
A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?
Sweet with Heat books are the sweet editions of the Love in Bloom steamy romance novels by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Sweet with Heat books convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.
Angie’s Review: I meant to read the first two books before this one, but you don’t NEED to read them in order to read this.
I have said this in all of my reviews of Cole’s books and I’ll say it again: I appreciate an author who writes tantalizing stories that are too hot for some of us, tames them so that everything fades to black and features a little more sweet than heat. Kudos to Foster/Cole for that!
In Sweet Heat at Bayside, BFFs, we learn more about Drake and Serena’s back story. Serena has never hid the fact that she wants out of Bayside, while Drake wants to stay.
Cole keeps her stories lighthearted, with very little angst. She methodically leads you through her stories with well developed characters and plots that don’t take nearly the entire book to fall into place.
I fell in love with her writing when I read the Seaside stories, and now I’m falling in love with her stories located in Bayside. You will never go wrong grabbing one of her books, I promise.
I can’t wait to go back and meet the rest of the gang and catch up.
