REVIEW & GIVEAWAY... Nights at Seaside by Addison Cole

NEW RELEASE........ 

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.

Nights at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster's steamy romance novel Seaside Nights. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In NIGHTS at SEASIDE… 
Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She’s happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over—love.

Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father’s deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.

When Sawyer walks into Sky’s tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar—Sky—the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.

Nights at Seaside is the sweet edition of the steamy romance novel Seaside Nights by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

My Thoughts…

Sweet with Heat is the perfect description for the Addison Cole Seaside Summers series.     Within each book is an adorable couple that have so much heat before them yet she manages to keep their private lives hot and clean.    There are hints at their private moments but it is kept private.    Minimal blushing happens while reading Addison Cole.  

In Nights at Seaside we get to know Sky and Sawyer.  Sky is a character that has been seen in the other books in the series but she has always been a secondary character.    This is her time to shine, her time to find love, and her time to tell her story.     Sky and Sawyer see each other at a bar and the sparks fly immediately.   There is an attraction that no one can deny yet they don’t talk that night.   By chance Sawyer comes into Sky’s new tattoo parlor and fate cannot be denied.       I love how quick they come together, how fast their relationship grows, and how evident their love for each is.    Sometimes a relationship goes too fast but this relationship had to move fast.   These two were so meant to be together that a slow relationship growth was out of the question.

The Seaside Girls made their position on the relationship known.    They accepted Sawyer into their family without question.   There was no doubt that Sawyer would be part of their family after the first bonfire on the beach.     The Seaside guys were just as welcoming.    Right away Sawyer was taken into their confidence and brought into their lives.  I love the scene by the pool with the guys and girls and their jinx’s towards Theresa.  

Everything in this story is wonderful.   The characters, the setting, and the story is exactly what I look forward to when I pick up an Addison Cole book.    I recommend picking up your own copy ASAP.

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 to hell when he comes to their rescue.

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.

Dreaming at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 2)
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Hearts at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 3)

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men. 

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him. 

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

REVIEW...Twisted Threads (Threads #4) by Kaylin McFarren

 Kindle Edition, 370 pages
Published November 20th 2017 by Creative Edge Publishing LLC

Akira Hamada, a beautiful Japanese geisha, failed at killing Kaito Mitsui two years ago—the same yakuza gang leader who destroyed her lover and forced her to become an assassin. Now, with his sister’s murderer traveling to the Caribbean on a cruise ship, Akira has ten days at sea to identify her target and complete her assignment as her penance, or face her own death.

My Thoughts…

This is my first Threads series book and I wasn’t sure what I was going to be reading.   The drama of who killed Akira’s sister was interesting but I was more invested in the romance.   How could a relationship that started as a lie work?   Would it work?    I had to keep reading to find out. 

I loved the characters.   Akira was intriguing.   Her skills as an assassin made her dangerous, thrilling, and an unknown.   I wasn’t always sure if she was being truthful about her intentions and found many times that I doubted that she even knew what she was hoping to happen.     Devon was great.   There were times I thought he was a tad na├»ve.   He fell for Akira quickly and seemed to just believe everything she told him.    His aunt and uncle were hilarious.    I laughed at Paul’s head in the sand attitude.   He seemed to accept everything at face value and not want to make waves.   Sara was crazy.   There is no other way around it.   From the very beginning she was off her rocker and full of drama.    

There were times I felt the story was a little slow with a little too much weird conversation between characters but just as that thought came along the story seemed to pick up and I was flipping pages unable to put the book down.    I’d recommend picking up your own copy and enjoying the cruise with Akira, Devon, and the rest of the gang.

Little Lies (An Alex Mercer Thriller Book 3) by Stacy Claflin

Kindle Edition
Published November 28th 2017

He’s dedicated his life to saving missing persons, but will it be enough to save himself?

Alex Mercer traded in his troubled past to protect the powerless. His blog for tracking down missing persons got his foot in the door at the police academy. But on his first day of training, a heroic act drops him into the hands of the captors he once hunted.

Zoey planned to tell Alex how she felt the night he disappeared. As she and Alex’s family discover the bloody signs of his fate, past regrets and dark secrets begin to come to light. It’s enough to tear Alex’s loved ones apart.

Without hope of rescue, Alex must rely on his cunning to escape captivity. In his line of work, he knows all too well that each passing hour could kill his chances of survival…

Little Lies is the third captivating standalone novel in the Alex Mercer series of thrillers. If you like edge-of-your-seat suspense, complex characters, and unflinching explorations of real-world problems, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Stacy Claflin’s pulse-pounding novel.

Buy Little Lies today to be held captive by an exhilarating page-turner. 

My Thoughts…

I am so hooked on this series by Stacy Claflin.  I started with the Gone Series and have continued with The Alex Mercer Thriller Series.     The characters are carried over from series to series but each book is an entire story.  You can pick these up in any order and enjoy them.  

There were a few times in this book I thought Oh My Gosh…how much more can one family go through.    And then the characters voice this same thought.     I liked how this family and their extended family stick together, come together in times of trouble, and have each other’s backs no matter what.   There was never a doubt that in this situation they would still stick together, still protect each other, and still never give up hope for a happy ending.   

I will forever be a Zoey and Alex fan and am thrilled with how this story was theirs.    I love how it came together, how their relationship was portrayed, and how the ending was written.    This is a perfect addition to their story and I am excited to keep reading more about their families.

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY...Bitter Rivalry by S.M. Reine, Heather Hildenbrand

Kindle Edition, 110 pages
Published September 20th 2015 by Elephantine Publishing 

Seventeen year-old Regan Vuk has lived her whole life under the shadow of her future: the pack alpha. She is fast, smart, and determined. According to her own pack members, she is a shoo-in. But Regan’s dad has a secret.

Seventeen year-old Charlie spent her adolescence drifting from place to place with a mother desperate to hide her illegitimate daughter from the unforgiving reality of werewolf pack dynamics. All Charlie has ever wanted is to know her father--and the family that's been kept from her all these years. But most of all, she wants a place to belong in the world. Where she doesn’t have to pretend she can’t sprout fur and paws at will.

Being kidnapped on her way home from prom was not what she had in mind.
When Charlie finds out the only way to fit in with her new family is to defeat her long-lost sister for the role of alpha, she refuses. That is until she learns that the strange and alluring vampire she's befriended, Owen, is the same vampire prince that's been promised the winner.
Regan has no doubt that, although she loathes the vampires, it will be her who "wins" Owen.

Only problem: Charlie's already fallen for him.

Bitterroot is a 3-part novella series with a dose of sibling rivalry... Who will you root for? 


My Thoughts…

Wolves, vampires, long lost family, and secrets… sounds like the perfect book and it is!    Bitterroot is exactly what I hope for when I start a new paranormal series.    I like that the authors took the time to let the reader get to know the characters and that the characters have some depth, some charisma, and some spunk.     Being that many of the characters were teenagers it was fun to see them push the rules, sneak around, and be young and fun. 

The storyline was unique in that the long lost family members were pitted against each other.    The father wants Charlie to come to her family, the family she didn’t even know existed, and follow the rules and accept what her future may hold.    That same father expects Regan to put aside what she thought was her future and accept that she has to fight her long-lost sister for what was to be hers.      It was interesting how these young women worked together and apart to figure out exactly what was to be expected of them and how they would make it work for them.     I liked that even though they were to fight each other it was evident that there were feelings developing between them and both were at odds at how to live up to the expectations without hurting the other.   

This is a novella, it is short but tells a story.    It is obviously the first in a series and the authors leave the reader with the must-read more mentality at the end.     There is so much more to the story and I cannot wait to continue this series.  

Thank you Heather Hildenbrand for a copy of the book for an honest review.
