What a heartwarming, sweet and entertaining read Sunsets at Seaside turned out to be.
I loved watching Jamie and Jessica's relationship develop, they were sensitive, caring, passionate characters who found their soulmate in each other.
These two made me swoon and smile so many times, I didn't want this book to end.

Sunsets at Seaside was a cute and swoony romance. I thought the setting was quite superb. I could really see the cottages nestled in between Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was a nice setting for a summertime romance. Jessica Ayers as a character was just a sweet little thing with her naivety and eagerness to discover herself, I enjoyed her immensely. Jamie Reed is funny, charming, and the relationship he has with his grandmother makes my heart throb.

I've won this book at a giveaway and I'm very happy with it. Because of the hot weather here in Belgium I really wanted to start reading this book, and I'm very happy I did that! This books started funny and that made me smile a lot (my sister watched me like I'm crazy). When continue I remarked I was enjoying the story so much! I loved the characters, they were so sweet. Jessica and Jamie were amazing protagonists and they both have won a place in my heart. The romance in this book was so adora ...more

In an unsuccessful online bidding, Jessica Ayers threw her phone from her cottage and hit Jamie Reed's head in the process. 

And then the computer geek met the musician who hated technology. Two extreme opposites, the man who belonged to the world wide web with just one click and the woman whose name couldn't even be found on Facebook. But when their hearts talked, their minds followed and their lips kissed like there was no tomorrow. 

I met Jamie Reed on the first few books of the Seaside series.

This was such a cute, heart warming book. It was very romantic. But if your looking for steamy sex scenes, look somewhere else. There's no explicit sex scenes or harsh language. Not that it wasn't passionate and you didn't get wrapped up in the romance, because you really did. Jamie and Jessica were both really great characters and I really loved reading about them falling in love. There were lots of swoon worthy moments. The side characters were all awesome. I loved everyone of them!! I was exc ...more

This was one of those light easy to read romances with not too much drama. Some of my favorite kinds. Plus the beach, who doesn’t love a romance at the beach? Jamie and Jessica was uber cute together. Their chemistry was great! Jessica was so innocent with just enough Sass. Jamie really wanted to know her, the real her. The irony on this one was great. Jessica loathed technology and guess what Jamie did. Of course a technology guru in his one right. Jamie was seriously so cute, the way he cared ...more

This is Book #4 'Sunsets At Seaside', another great book in the Seaside Summers Series. These books are all the sweet version of Melissa Foster's Seaside Summers Series. So if you are looking for Sweet With Heat Contemporary Romance Reads, (These can be read as stand alones or the whole series read in order to follow along with the going ons of the Seaside Girls) then this is the series for you.)

Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole is the fourth book in her Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but despite being part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend that you read the books in order so you understand the characters better.

Jamie is brilliant, successful, loaded, and very easy on the eye. Luckily for Jamie, a talented and beautiful cellist named Jessica decides to take some time away from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and finds herself staying next door to Jamie and Vera for the summer.

How ironic is it that this couple meets over the very thing that Jamie is trying to escape from for a Summer? Technology! Jessica is an overworked and stressed professional cellist who is planning on spending the Summer deciding if it's hers or her mother's dream that she is fulfilling. Neither one plans on starting a love affair; however, fate takes over regardless of what we have planned!

Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole was such a heartwarming read full of romance and humor. I liked the characters and the story. Though this is part of a series, I did not feel lost in the story.

Jessica Ayers needs a break. She has been sheltered most of her life, devoting all her time to the cello. As a member of the Boston symphony, her life revolves around practices and performances, but is this what she really wants? To make this decision, she decides a vacation is in order. I liked Jessica

Insta-lust often precedes insta-love (or happens simultaneously). In Sunsets at Seaside, this is exactly what Jamie Reed and Jessica Ayers experience. Their physical draw starts with a physical interaction when she chucks her phone and it collides with Jamie's head. Introduction complete, Jessica immediately falls in with the ladies in Wellfleet, Massachusetts where she is renting a cottage and she and Jamie now have all kinds of opportunities to spend time together.

In the fourth installment of Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers, Addison Cole brings us Sunsets at Seaside. This is the story of Jessica Ayers, a cello player with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Jamie Reed, a billionaire developer of a world renowned internet search engine.

Sunsets at Seaside is one of my favorite Seaside books in the series. The settings are described beautifully, and I love the character interactions.

Jessica Ayers is a sweet and passionate woman. She feels much older than she truly is. Jessica wants to spend the summer learning more about herself and what she truly wants in life. I love Jessica's shyness and seeing her try new things with those at Seaside. The way Jessica first meets Jamie always puts a smile on my face when ever it gets mention

Sunsets at Seaside is such a fun, sweet summer read that I want to keep going back for more!

Jessica is spending the summer on Seaside and taking a break from her high pressure position at the Boston Symphony Orchestra and trying to make a decision about her future. Jamie is spending the entire summer with his grandmother for the first time in years, while they still have time together.

I am loving this Sweet with Heat series! These sweets reads are so refreshing to read after some not so sweet books.
Jessica brings the sweet to this book! While at times she seems very naive, I found it great that she was so aware of it herself and she was trying to learn and experience new things.
Jamie while having more life experience was naive in some ways as well, and maybe a bit too trusting. I think it was amazing that a man his age was so determined to spend positive time with his grand

I have fallen right into all the Sweet with Heat books from Addison Cole. Each one focuses on one person in a group of friends I was already introduced to in previous books. Yet, I feel like I have been waiting for these stories for forever.

Set on Cape Cod - a place I have childhood memories of, I love reading about these friends who find their forever loves.

In this particular book, things switch up a bit as it is Jamie, one of the men, who is spending a summer on the Cape. In previous books, Ja

I love it when a story starts with the characters not looking for love. I have always felt that love should start with not looking for it. It's possible that I think like this because my first love and my biggest love (aka my hubby) happened with me not looking for them. Maybe that is why out of all the books in this series that I have read, this one is my favorite.

In this story we meet Jessica and Jamie. Jessica plays for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is in no way looking for love at the mo

Jessica is a private person who needs a break from her everyday life. She has a bit of an aversion to technology, preferring to exist in a smaller music filled world. She's on a mission to find herself, her true self, outside of the Orchestra world.

Jamie is back home for the summer with his Grandma Vera. Jamie is pretty much as opposite from Jessica as one can get. Not only does he live fully immersed in the world of technology, his livelihood depends on people using technology on a daily basis

What a beautiful fun and flirty book, I really enjoyed the 4th book to Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat books "Sunsets at Seaside". I found Jamie and Jessica to be such a beautiful couple. Then when they all came together it was just so much fun.

I love Melissa Foster's book so when I saw she had an alter ego that did sweet romance, I had to give one of her books a go, because I am more a fan of sweeter romances.

Sunsets is part of a series, but is definitely a standalone novel.

This book is Jessica and Jamie's story, and though this isn't a hot and spicy romance. I loved the setting to this story as well as the characters. Addison creates believable strong characters that you really get attached to. Jess is a cellist and Jamie is a tech m

This is the 4th instalment of the Seaside Summers Series by Addison Cole.
In this story we see Jessica Ayers who has rented the seaside cottage for the summer as she is on hiatus from the Boston Symphony Orchestra as a Cellist. While trying to bid on an item on EBay she loses the bid and inadverntently throws her phone over the side hitting hunky Jamie Reed in the head.

Oh Jamie and Jessica!! I love them! They are too cute for words. After reading this book, I was left with a nice warm tingly sensation of love!

Okay, relationships was pretty believable because not everyone is all about constantly needing to be in a relationship! I love love loved the chemistry between Jamie and Jessica! You could j ...more
