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.
There is a twist at the end which I guessed about a page before it happened. As usual Addison Cole creates characters that you care about and want them to overcome their problems to find happiness together. The twist brings both joy and sadness to Parker but she has the support and love of Grayson to cope with the revelation.
I look forward to seeing how the couple negotiate their relationship in the background of future books as it isn’t clear how they will cope with Parker’s career taking her away from home.
My overall score for this book is 5/5.
Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.In Lovers at SEASIDE…
Parker has been running on autopilot ever since she lost her friend, mentor, and the only family she’s ever known, Bert Stein. Armed with junk food, tequila, and her big, lovable dog, she’s prepared to hole up and mourn—and determined to mend a fence Bert had never been able to with his estranged and bitter brother. But Parker didn’t count on the handsome artist she’s been fantasizing about for nearly a year walking in on her grief-induced drunken night.
When Grayson stumbles across Parker, he has no idea what to make of the gorgeous blonde who blew him off despite the chemistry between them. But that doesn’t stop him from feeling protective of the woman who’s consumed his thoughts for months, and when he learns of Parker’s plans to confront an angry old man, he refuses to leave her side. As Parker’s past unfolds, they’re led on an unexpected journey of discovery. Their connection deepens, until good intentions spark painful secrets, threatening the love they’ve found.
