Today I’m excited to share my review of the latest book in the Sweet with Heat Bayside series by Addison Cole. Fun side note, I’m typing this post up as I’m sitting at a bar in the Redmond airport, waiting for our flight to head back home to Orange County. I don’t usually draft blog posts from the wordpress app, so my apologies in advance if it comes out a bit funky on the viewer version.
Sweet Heat at Bayside by Addison Cole
I loved this story! Sweet Heat at Bayside was a sweet story of learning to let love into your life and the beauty of timing and life coming together when you least expect it. The love between Serena and Drake that has been budding over the years was pushed aside by both of them up until now. It turns out their timing just might end up being perfect for them take the incredible foundation of friendship and turn it into something even more important and wonderful.
Serena: stubborn, sassy, sexy and sweet, with a bit of a problem with authority and a strong desire to prove herself and be successful, all of the things her mother never was. Drake on the other hand is sexy and stubborn and also incredibly selfless to the point where he denied his feelings for Serena because he didn’t want to hold her back from pursuing her dreams and achieving success out in the world.
Serena and Drake have been by one another’s side for years but only as very close friends. As evident in this story, a strong everlasting friendship truly is one of the best foundations for lasting love.
I highly recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next story!
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
I received a free ARC of this novel. My review 100% reflects my honest opinion and I was not paid for my review.
Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They’re fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.
In Sweet Heat at Bayside…
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?
