Beck Valley Book Tours Book Review: Sweet Heat At Bayside

NEW RELEASE........ 

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.

In Sweet Heat at Bayside…
Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned—even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

Review: I'm totally in love with the Bayside series by Addison Cole. I'm also totally reading this series out of order.

I feel like the friends of Bayside are close friends of mine now. These are characters that I've come to love because they are just the kind of friends you want in your own life. They are there for each other probably more so than most of the friends most of us have. Yes, I'm jealous of them. I want friends like this in my life, even if their friendships are a little bit too perfect at times.

This story is Serena and Drake's and its one of my favorite tropes, friends to lovers. The two of them have been friends forever and they worked together for several years. Serena lands a new job in Boston, and that's the catalyst for taking their relationship out of the friend zone.

On the downside of this one, not only is this a friends to lovers trope, its also unrequited love story, which read a lot like another one of Addison's books Secrets at the Seaside, though there was more angst in that book. At least here Serena and Drake are smart enough to hook up.

What I really like about Addison's characters are how strong the heroine's are and how alpha, but without the controlling BS that the heroes are. Serena knows what she wants out of life and she goes for it, and she questions things too, including her career path.

There was more heat in this book that others that I've read. A lot of heat, really. Rooftop sex even.


That's what was going on.

Also cookies and donuts..and I need to get me some of each of sweets mentioned in the book. It makes me wish I were in Boston.

With each Addison Cole book I read, I have a new favorite.

Rating: 5 flowers
