Great start to a beautiful breezy romance series set along one of the most charming stretches of beach towns in Florida. You'll feel like you're right there, sitting on the white sandy beaches watching the world (and all the hot men) go by! Recommended! ...more

Seanna escapes her current painful living situation to go visit her favorite Aunt Cassidy in Seaside Florida. She was looking for just a few days to avoid her deadbeat ex-fiance but what she finds is love from her aunt as well as new friends that she completely belongs with. Blake moved to Seaside to get a fresh start, a place where nobody knows the horrors of his past, and he can be a simple handyman. He never planned on Seanna, the first person to make him want to share his past and hope for h ...more

Seanna and Blake are going through so much in this book. For Seanna she is coming out of a really horrible relationship-her trust is shattered and she is angry. Angry at herself and at all men. For Blake he is beating himself up about something in his past and it is keeping him closed off and eating him alive. So when they meet and there is attraction, Blake fights like heck to ignore it and Seanna doesn’t really know what to think. She knows she feels safe with Blake. That she wants to open up ...more

The houses are pastel, the ocean air heaven, and the men hot as the Gulf Coast sun…one in particular. But while paying the price, literally, for the last man she trusted with her heart, she’s not interested in any sort of beach romance, or so she keeps reminding herself.

Did you know that Melissa Chambers is one of my favorite authors? I loved both The Summer Before Forever and Falling For Forever, so I don’t know if I could’ve possibly been any more excited when she reached out to ask if I’d like to review an ARC of her latest adult title. This book actually helped pull me out of a several-week-long slump and I am forever grateful for that. Slumps are the worst.

As expected, I really enjoyed this book! I felt like I could’ve driven down to Seaside, Florida to ha

Besides offering up a wonderful love story, this book made me want to hop in my car and drive down to the Florida panhandle! Heck, if Blake were real, maybe I would :) I loved the story of Blake and Seanna, and how they overcame their pasts to find love with each other. In the enchanting setting of this beautiful Florida beach town, Blake and Seanna's love is anything but perfect. They both have things they're running from that they are afraid to face. Still, the attraction between the broody, m ...more

I adored this little love story - Seanna is coming out of a relationship that was so unhealthy that she has told herself she doesn't deserve love, or another man. Blake is dead set on ignoring the chemistry - but when these two finally set aside the past and open themselves up for the future, it's just so sweet. I really enjoyed these two broken characters coming together and falling so hard. It was such a cute story, with an amazing southern setting. I loved it. ...more

New series

Another great romantic series by Melissa Chambers. She does not disappoint with Seaside Sweets. Blake and Sienna's romance does not happen without some drama and little hot sex. The seaside town is ideal for rebuilding Sienna soul and life. There she meets such a collective group that accepts her into their fold as a new friend. Blake carries secrets that hold him back but he also unbeknownst to him has found a family in this unusual group. Friendship and love for each other no matter

A heartwarming love story about second chances, new beginnings and the power of secrets.

I loved the story and lived every page of it. The writing style is simple, the characters are well developed and with a bit of crazy side attached to them, but also strongwilled. It will make you laugh, cry and live it with intensity.

Seanna's life is a long way from bei g the one she dreamed of at the beginning. In order to find the strenght she needs to start her life over, she moves for a while in Seaside,

This was my first book by this author but definitely not my last!

Seanna and Blake are easily one of my favorite couples! Seanna is broken woman looking for a temporary escape from a life she didn’t see herself getting into and Blake is a handsome man running from a past he doesn’t want anyone to know about. When they end up in the same town to escape their previous lives they are immediately drawn to one another. From their first meeting you are cheering them on then the next page y

This is my first book by this author but certainly not my last. This is Seanna and Blake's love story. Seanna has come to Seaside, Florida to her aunt Cassidy's place. She is there to regroup and figure out where she goes from here. Her bad choice back at home has left her penniless and jobless.

Blake has been in Seaside for three years. He has been working as a handy man and jack of all trades. Bo has become his best friend, almost like the brother he never had. Bo knows that Blake is hiding so

Seanna and Blake are one great couple that have a few things to overcome, but do manage to do so. Along the way you meet some other amazing characters with some great personalities. I want to be part of this fun, loving, unique friend group!

Seanna and Blake have an instant attraction to each other, but takes a bit to get it moving. But once it does, boom! Fireworks!

There is real life situations being discussed with real problems and solutions. I love this quirky little group and I can't wait to

At first this book was deceptively good, well written with colourful characters.

As the book progressed I found myself getting annoyed and frustrated with it. The characters were still interesting, well the surrounding characters were. Blake and Seanna, however, not so much. I thought this was going to be a romance but it seemed to be more like an erotic book with the heapings of sex.

Seaside Sweets book 1

I can't wait for the follow-up! This is a great story about friendships and newfound love, set in a beachtown. Lots of secrets and turmoil amidst friends and ex relationships. I think everyone can recognize a bit of their past in these characters. There are some steamy scenes included. Read on as the story continues I didn't stop till it was finished!.

Wish washy romance with tragic baggage

This is a slow wishy washy romance where one of the couple has baggage and the other one has tragic baggage. The story is made up of constant denial, avoidance, lies, martyrdom & lots of self doubt. The plot was ok but the story reeked of a first attempt at writting. Not bad enough to be a 1 but not good enough to be more than a 2.

Better than I initially thought. Good for times you want an easy fun read.

A great book when you want a light hearted romance that is not riddled with details or full of descriptive sex.

Another Winner From Melissa Chambers

A lover of Chambers's YA work, I was delighted to find she had published three adult romance novels at once. Seaside Sweets is artfully crafted, leaving the reader wanting more. Thankfully, I can pick up books 2 and 3 and binge away!
It's "All of a sudden"

Not "All of the sudden".
I do have lots of love for PCB, and Hwy 30A. The first time I went there I decided I needed to become a beach bum.
Sadly, that never happened.
It's a cute story, practically fabulous! 😊

Good story, poor writing.

Writer needs to learn grammar, punctuation, and phrasing. Few typos, which is unusual in ebooks. I thought Seanna's aunt, Cassidy, should have had a larger role.

I wasn't expecting much from this book. I dont read a lot of beach read contemporary romance novels (no judgement at all, they're just not usually my thing), but this book surprised me. The story was light but compelling, and I really didn't want to put it down. ...more

Moving towns, leaving behind a bully and toxic ex-fiance, Seanna moves to a seaside town where she is able to build a new group of friends. She also finds love, develops her professional career and discovers that everyone deserves a second chance. This story has some steamy chapters.

Not fantastic. Just about average for me. I think a lot of gaps needed to be filled in and they werent. It took too long to get the stories out about our our H\h.

Cute story. Third person always takes something away from a book for me but if you can get past that, it was a good story.
