I liked this one but it wasn't a story that really stood out to me. This is the ninth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but it reads perfectly fine as a stand-alone while readers of the series will enjoy checking in with some of the characters from earlier books. I found this quick and pleasant read and liked the chemistry between the characters.

Parker is an actress taking some much needed alone time after the loss
4.5 stars

Lover st Seaside by Addison Cole is a sweet, heartwarming and entertaining friends to lovers read.
I enjoyed the storyline, it was well written, emotional and I loved watching Grayson and Parker come together. Parker was going through a very emotional time and having Grayson be there for her, supporting her and helping her find her way warmed my heart. This was one special man who opened his heart and would do anything for his woman.

There are many aspects of life we take for granted. Among the most valued is life itself and the time we seem to forget is rapidly slipping away. Lovers at Seaside is an amazing tale of life, love and loss. It's also a life lesson: "Make every moment and person in your life count." Addison Cole wraps readers up in a tale of new beginnings and heartbreaking loss. For Grayson and Parker loss takes their friendship in a new direction.

Grayson and Parker are total opposites, he's a metal artist and she's a famous actress. Grayson has a strong, loving family and Parker is an orphan who grew up in foster care. Grayson works for Parker's foundation creating beautiful art for their many locations, while Parker does great work for children.

Grayson shows up at the Foundation's house to discover a very different Parker than the woman he's been working with for a year. Parker has lost the man she sees as a father, and without a suppor

This book has the right mix of heat and sweet. Parker and Grayson are the perfect compliment to each other. You will laugh and cry when you read this. I can't wait to see what Addison comes up with next.

I enjoyed this story, and seeing how actress Parker Collins & Grayson Lacroux who is an artist come together. They had started a friendship & had made plans to meet but Parker never showed up. She was dealing with the loss of Bert Stein, who was her mentor, friend & like family to her. She was grieving the loss.

Grayson doesn't know what to do with Parker when he runs into her, after she didn't show up for their meeting. But they communicated and he helped her deal with her loss &

Lovers at Seaside was a really sweet, easy and enjoyable read that had me engrossed from start to finish. As with all Addison Cole's sweet summer romances, I had been eagerly awaiting its release and I was not disappointed.

I was intrigued by Parker and found that I took a while to warm to her, but her story 'orphaned turned actress' was inspiring and I could relate to her journey to overcome grief and the stages that she was going through wanting to shut out the world. I loved the relationship

Lovers at Seaside focusses on loss and new beginnings. I feel that these deeply emotional and personal subjects set this novel apart from the other books in this series. The exceptional characters and their journey captivated me from the first page of the novel!!
Actress Parker Collins is grief stricken. Her friend Bert passed while she was away filming in Italy. She’s devastated because she has lost her best friend, mentor and the only family she’d known. Parker grabs her dog and retreats to her

You could never doubt what will be brought to the pages when Addision Cole's takes us on a visit back to Seaside for the Summer. Ever in need of a sweet romance with that bite of heat but not overwheming explicity then you need to pick up the latest in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers.

Lovers at Seaside is the "sweet" version of Melissa Foster's Seaside Lovers. It's the same story, but without the explicit love scenes and harsh language. It's not exactly a clean read, but less of an erotic read. This is the ninth book in the series and is Parker and Grayson's story. For the record, I hadn't read Seaside Lovers before reading this one.

I thought this was sweet romance. I liked the couple featured. They had gotten to know each other through e-mails for months before finally get t

I love escaping with the Seaside gang Addison's character adventures in life, love, friendship - everything! She makes you believe in a sweet, true love! I try to keep my bitter, cynical outlook on love but then Addison drops another book that makes me swoon and get all sappy again.

Parker is my kind of gal - she loves tequila (this earned her the top spot as my favorite Seaside gal!) and junk food - sounds exactly like me! She closes up during a time of loss and who can blame the girl?! I felt t

I have enjoyed all of the previous Addison Cole books but this is one of my favourites.
The lovers in the title are Parker, an actress, and Grayson, a craftsman. She has hired him to work on her house but has forgotten that she gave him a key so he walks in on her whilst she is reeling with grief.
For the rest of the book Grayson acts as a support for Parker while she comes to terms with her loss and fights to maintain her actress persona in public.

I'm not surprised that Ms. Cole has hit it out of the park again with this book. What did surprise me was that she was able to take me out of month long book funk with this book! As always with this sweet with heat series the characters are so easy to fall in love with, and I want them in my real life. This book had a few surprises and twists that were refreshing to see thrown into the mix.
Grayson is another perfect book boyfriend that all real boyfriends should strive to be. He is caring and c

Such a sweet and emotional romance.

The way Grayson is with Parker is so sweet and I am officially in love with my new audiobook boyfriend ;)

I love how their relationship develops and how their characters grow, Grayson and Harper are the couple who you can imagine sitting surrounded by grandchildren and still madly in love. Their audiobook made me cry but also made me laugh at the same time. I didn't want the audiobook to end.

Addison has this way of pulling her readers into her audiobooks

Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heat Series is one of my favorites, and Lovers at Seaside is a great story. Even though this is the ninth book in the series, it’s a great stand alone read. In this story Parker & Grayson have been exchanging professional emails for a year. Even though everything until now has been strictly professional the romance and chemistry between them is inevitable. This is such a romantic story that even my mom enjoyed it!

This is the story of actress Parker Collins who has for months been having a long distance relationship with Grayson Lacroux and when they finally plan to meet at the seaside town, Parker never shows. So had Grayson got it wrong was there relationship starting to blossom.
It seems that Parker had just lost her friend Bert Stein, he had been her mentor and the only family she had and decides that she will see if she can

I love Addison Cole. I've been slowly working my way through the Seaside Summers series. This is the fourth book out of the 9 that I've read.

Parker Collins is a well known actress, who is dealing with the loss of her mentor, friend, only family she's ever really known.

Grayson Lacroux is an iron artist who is doing restoration work for Parker.

These two have connected through email and they both felt a connection and when they get together there is more than a connection. The heat between these t

I received an ARC of this story in return for my honest review. Another fantastic 5-star book by Addison Cole. I am loving this series and slowly going back and reading the books earlier in the series that I have missed. This is the 9th book in the Seaside Series and is the story of Grayson and Parker. Grayson is Hunter's brother and we meet him in Book #8 when he and Hunter win an art contest sponsored by Parker Collin's foundation. Because of Hunter's new relationship with Jana, Grayson agrees ...more

I have always had a soft spot in my heart for Grayson Lacroux. I was so excited when he and his brother Hunter won the sculpture contest and a two year contract with Parker Collins's foundation. I was hoping for a book about that two year period but Addison Cole has given me something so much better than I could have hoped for.

Grayson and Parker are working closely together because of the two year contract but most of the contact is over email. Without really saying anything to the other, both a

I have grown to appreciate the dual narrator aspect of listening to a story that I have already love. Hearing a woman tell the story of the female character and a man tell the male side of the story just enhances the story. Listening to a story that I have already read makes the story come to life in a new way, there are emotions that I missed or didn’t quite understand when reading but hearing the story brings those emotions to life for me.

Lovers at Seaside is the ninth Seaside book and one of my favorites! Parker and Grayson need to deal with an added element that most couples do not need to deal with - her fame as an actress.

Throughout the story, Grayson is there for Parker as Parker mourns one of the only people in her life who had cared about her like family, Bert. As she learns more about Bert's family, Parker stumbles into a huge surprise about her own past. It is Grayson's persistence (although she gets angry about it) tha

I have been waiting for *forever* for Grayson's story and I'm so excited it's here! And it arrives with a fabulous movie star in tow. Although happily ever after is never a straight path, this story will entice you and keep you wrapped up as Parker and Grayson navigate the tricky waters of love and attraction. A great addition to the Sweet with Heat series!
