Dreaming at Seaside by Addison Cole was such a good read.
The storyline was sweet and romantic, the characters were likable, very relatable and I was totally taken in with them.
I loved watching Bella's and Caden's relationship unfold. Neither was looking for love but when you meet that one special person who brings joy, comfort and love just by being with you how can you turn your back to it?

Dreaming at Seaside is a beautifully written, heartfelt read that touched my heart and I highly

Received in exchange for a honest review.

I liked this one more than read write love at Seaside. You do not need the first book to understand this one but the characters are all in that book as well.

Caden is a great guy. He is honest, loyal and a amazing dad. He puts his son above everything else even himself. So when he finds himself liking someone he is a little lost at first. His attraction is palpable for Bella. And hers is equally felt. But both are flustered by it.

Caden deals better with it

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Seaside Dreams is a sweet and fun romance. Bella is the prankster of her group of friends and Caden is a police officer, they meet during a classic Bella moment and things just get more interesting as the couple get closer. Opposites really do attract..

One of my favorite things about listening to books rather than reading them is the fact that you get the true feelings behind the words. When reading it is left to the reader to interpret the meaning behind the words, there is nothing wrong with this there is just different ways to interpret. While listening to the book you can the tone, the context, and the voice of the character so I sometimes get a different perspective on the story and what the characters true feelings are.

Dreaming at Seaside is a story that makes me wish I lived in the Seaside community. Wellfleet and the Cape sound beautiful and peaceful to live in, minus the recent break-ins featured in this story.

Bella is a determined and fun-loving female. I really like that she's willing to take a big risk and change her life. I love the pranks she plays and wish there was more within the story. Her Seaside friends are the dream friend group any female may wish she has.

Caden is a protective and supportive ma

I read Addison’s first book and was looking forward to her next offering which is this book “Dreaming at Seaside.” It was just as entertaining as I had hoped it would be… the girls who live in the Seaside Cottages are a crazy, funny and loveable gang who keep us on our toes.

This book focuses on Bella Abbascia who has been coming to Wellfleet to spend the summer since she was a young girl. This year is a bit different for her… she comes nursing a broken heart and looking to make a change in her l

Sweet with a little spice (not explicit) small resort town romance that is the perfect summer read!

Dreaming at Seaside is a sweet with just a little spice (but not explicit) small resort town romance between a woman who has given up on men when in walks the handsome new single dad cop in town. Dreaming at Seaside is well written with just enough twists and drama to keep things interesting with a sweet epilogue to tie all things up. Perfect for a relatively light-hearted summer read!

Dreaming of Seaside is the 2nd book by Addison Cole and one that I thoroughly enjoyed…. This book follows the story of Bella Abbascia who has returned to the Seaside Cottages for her regular summer visit where she meets up with her girl friends and has done since she was a child. Most summers are spent sun baking and chunky dunking with her friends but this year as different as Bella has quit her job, put her house on the market and sworn off men.

Bella is the prankster of the Seaside girls. When a prank has the police showing up, she meets Officer Caden Grant. Caden moved his teenaged son, Evan, to Wellfleet after his partner is killed in the line of duty.

Sparks fly the instant Bella and Caden meet. Caden appreciates not only Bella's prankster persona, but the other aspects of her personality as well.

I loved how Bella and Evan clicked and how quickly she came to care about him, too. Evan was really accepting of Bella and Caden's relati

What a sweet and sexy book by Addison Cole!

Bella and Caen made such a sweet couple. Bella, quite her job and decided to get her life in order to start a business on Cape Cod. Caden, a police officer who left Boston after his partner was killed, wanted to work in a small town. He settled down in Wellfleet with his son Evan. You could see the sparks fly with Bella and Caden right from the start. Caden and Even were welcomed into the Seaside group immediately.

Have you ever read a book that is part of a series and wonder what will happen to the secondary characters? That is what happen when I read Read, Write, Love. I wanted to know if the rest of the Seaside Girls would find their happy endings just like Leanna did with Kurt. Dreaming at Seaside is Bella’s story. Well, Bella and Caden’s story.

Wild, crazy, trickster Bella is swearing off relationships until she gets her life in order. Then one night of being found outside by new local police officer

I feel like I'm right there with these characters. Actually they feel like real people and real friends I would have. That is such a great thing when an author can make you feel like you are living the story and not just reading it and that's what this author does. I found myself laughing and crying while reading this book.

This time the story focuses on the wild, outspoken Bella and a new police officer in town named Caden. Bella has decided to quit her teaching job in Connecticut and move to the Cape full time, hopefully heading up a new work study project with the local high school.

Dreaming at Seaside is the second book of the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series. We get to spend time with all of the Seaside girls from the previous book, but the focus is mainly on Bella Abbascia. She's the gang's prankster and probably the most outspoken. She came to Seaside with the plan to sell her house in Connecticut and start fresh on the Cape, after a bad breakup.

What is there not to love about this book? Nothing! Bella & Caden are a fantastic couple who are absolutely the perfect complement to each other. Their story has all of the pieces and parts that make for a great romance. Addison Cole knows how to write a sweet story with all the intensity, heat and passion but minus the descriptive sex in case that's not your thing. It is most definitely still a sexy read though.
Bella is a strong, funny wonderful heroine and Caden is just, well, Caden. He is
