I had a good time with this audiobook. This was a nice quick romance that really grabbed me from the very start. I really didn't want to stop listening and couldn't wait to see Jana and Hunter figure things out. This is the eighth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but it read absolutely fine as a stand alone. Addison Cole's books are the sweet with heat versions of some of Melissa Foster's books. This book is the sw ...more

I have truly come to appreciate these "sweet with heat" books by Addison Cole, and I have to say that she has found a happy medium when crafting these romantic tales. She has found a way to take out the bedroom scenes and any bad language while still telling an engaging story that reminds the hopeless romantics in all of us why falling in love is such a cheris ...more

The way this story started off, I knew the characters were in trouble when it comes to each other, especially Jana.
Jana is a very strong, independent woman, who is insecure when it comes to her ability to commit to relationships. Jana loves to dance, box, and performing in a theater. I enjoy her creative side. Lately, life has gotten crazy and out of control that Jana has had to cut back on the things she loves.
Hunter is creative ...more

Audio makes this a worthy afternoon listen while driving down the road, cleaning house, lounging by the pool, or just doing mindless work. The ebb and flow of the dual narration makes for an engaging sweet romance. You get all the words brought to life and made more vivid in your mind. I am a huge fan of audio books. I love the previous narrator of the series up to this point. I was hesit ...more
They've spent the last several months being bed buddies but fighting it every step of the way. Can they move beyond being friends with benefits and actually date? And can they get past their history and their current hurdles to find love?
This is a sweet, fun story, set with ...more
I love that Hunter is so determined. He may be scared and not sure of love but that's not going to stop him. Jana is such a strong woman and she works really hard to guard her emotions. I really felt I could really relate to Hunter and Jana. I think we have all had a bad relationship that made us question if they were worth it.
We met Hunter a while back, but now we really get to know him. He's quite a steamy fella. He has the smolder down to an art. I mean seriously, you can feel it seeping off the pages at times. I loved it. Jana's not immune to his smolder, but he's not immune to her either... as much as they both want to be. This is a casual fling that grows into much more. I enjoyed the process of it all. They were definitely in denial, and oh so entertaining. If you haven't sta ...more

Love, beach and lovely friends are all you need for summer and decompress from everyday time.
Jana and Hunter have been "friends with benefits" for quite some time, but never wanting to take the next step.
Now things are changing and these two commitment phobes must decide whether they should open up to the new world of coupledoom.
I love this couple and how they are sassy and absolutely fun in their way of finding love. When one bites the other barks and t ...more

I love that Addison puts in a disclaimer in the note to readers at the beginning the book...”Please note that this is not an inspirational or wholesome read. This is a true, “Sweet with Heat” and Jana and Hunter’s story begins with a large dose of steam.” This shows how Addison remains true to romance, life and to the characters that lead ...more
