As the co-owner of Bayside Resorts, Rick Savage has a fabulous job working with his best friends and brother, and a thriving business in Washington, DC, which he’ll be returning to at the end of the summer. Spending time with his family is great, but being back on Cape Cod has unearthed painful memories. When sweet, smart, and overly cautious Desiree Cleary moves in next door, Rick is drawn to the sexy preschool teacher, and she just might prove to be the perfect distraction.



Running an art gallery was not in preschool teacher Desiree Cleary’s plans, but after being tricked into coming to her impetuous, unreliable mother’s aid, she’s stuck spending the summer with the rebellious half-sister she barely knows and a misbehaving dog. If that’s not frustrating enough, she can’t escape the sparks igniting with her strikingly handsome and pushy neighbor, Rick, who makes all her warning bells go off.



Passion ignites as Desiree and Rick spend long summer nights sharing heartfelt confessions and steamy kisses. For the first time in years, Rick is enjoying life again instead of hiding behind mounds of work miles away from his family. Desiree has touched him in a way that makes him want to slow down. Only slowing down means dealing with his demons, and he isn’t sure who he’ll be when he comes out the other side.

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.

Addison Cole is back with a new series! And I'm thrilled to be reading the first book! So let's jump right in…

In Sweet Love at Bayside, we meet Desiree Clearly; pre-school teacher and daughter to one of the biggest "free-spirited" people on the planet! Or so it seems. You see, Desiree had grown up without her mother, or sister, as Desiree mother Lizzy had taken off after the divorce of her parents, dragging Desiree's half-sister Violet with her, leaving Desiree motherless and without a care, which fueled Desiree's determination to NEVER be like her mother. But now her mother has summoned her to her Grandmother's house in Cape Cod Bay, with some form of emergency…

So I'm going to stop that deliciousness there, and tell you about the characters. Desiree is Miss Sensible, and you honestly cannot help but love her, she is sassy and vulnerable and you just want to give her a huge hug. Then there is Violet! Oh, my she is spunky! But most of that is just her exterior, she has also been badly damaged by their mother but knows how to put on a good front, but I spent most of the book worried about what emotional damage their mother is going to do to them next!

Now the one person who I have not spoken about yet, and who seems to be the main family in this new series and that is Rick Savage and the Savage family. After a devastating loss of his father, Rick runs, as soon as he is able too, even though he has family ties to Cape Cod. But when he decides to take care of some of his family responsibilities, he is hit on the head by something more...and that more is Desiree.


This new series from Addison Cole is awesome and this is the first book! Which is why I give  Sweet Love at Bayside 5 stars!

When Emery Andrews’s best friend, Desiree, moves away, falls in love, and opens an inn all in one summer, she feels her absence like a missing limb. Until she visits over the holidays and meets sinfully hot Dean Masters, who’s as easy on the eyes as he is to talk to. After returning home, what starts as a flurry of late-night flirtations quickly turns into a deep connection and unexpected friendship. Now, months later, Desiree offers Emery a job teaching yoga at the inn. Adventurous Emery jumps at the chance and heads for Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to reunite with her BFF and her new close friend, Dean.



After months of sharing their lives, and their secrets, over video chats and phone calls, Dean’s ready to move things to the next level. The fact that Emery seems oblivious to the sparks between them and has recently put her foot down about dating friends just means he’ll have to bide his time.



When Emery finds a man in her kitchen the first morning she’s there, Dean doesn’t hesitate to move her into his guest room. Maybe now Emery will see what’s right before her eyes–although that guy she’s got a date with might be a problem.

We are back in Wellfleet! Yay! Sweet Passions at Bayside, which is the next installment in the Bayside Summers series by Addison Cole, and I'm super excited to read it.

Emery Andrew's has taken a huge step, and has left her Virginia home, and takes a risk in starting her Yoga and Back Care clinic. But she starting afresh with no with no support! Her best friend Desiree is there, running the family Inn, with her sister, and then there is her newest best friend Dean, who she had just met this past Christmas, but cannot seem to go a day without speaking.

But when Dean tells Emery that he wants more than to just be her friend, all of Emery's insecurities come to the surface, and she believes that she is going to destroy her friendship with Dean. But can Dean prove to Emery that this is the real thing!!

What can I say about Sweet Passions at Bayside?! Well, it's addictive and to be blunt, its deliciousness itself. You cannot help but have a huge soft spot for both Emery and Dean, but also Rose, Dean's mom, jet, and add to that the spiciness of Violet, and her naked houseguest. The book overall is amazing, the writing and the plot is truly something you can get lost in.

Sweet Passions at Bayside is an amazing love story, which is why I give it five stars!
