Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he’s come to finish his latest thriller — that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt’s best-laid plans are shot when he comes to their rescue. Kurt’s as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn’t even know the definition of the word organized.
Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.
Sweet with Heat books are the sweet editions of the Love in Bloom steamy romance novels by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Sweet with Heat books convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.
I picked up Read, Write, Love at Seaside looking for a light summer book to breeze through on a recent vacation. And it pretty much delivered what I was looking for.
Like most romance novels, I found this book to be a little cheesy but definitely cute. I enjoyed the meet cute of the main characters and seeing their relationship develop. Although my favorite character was most definitely Leanna’s dog, Pepper, who I thought stole the show! The plot here was fairly formulaic, as this genre tends to be, but it was a fun and easy read to zip through without having to think too much about it.
As indicated in the author’s bio, Addison Cole is the sweet alter ego of New York Times and USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is a “sweet” version of Foster’s Read, Write, Love, watered down for a less steamy and graphic experience. That being said, there was still a lot of sexual innuendo, I’d say at about a PG-13 rating.
If you like romance books that are not graphic or explicit, give Read, Write, Love at Seaside a try for some light summer reading. Bonus if you read it on kindle or nook – both are free right now!
