    Desiree has spent her life with seriously mixed feelings about her mother, and receiving word that she needed to come to the Cape to save her mother's life was her last straw. Desiree drops everything to rush to her mother's aid, and winds up stuck running her mother's gallery and overseeing construction for the summer.

Desiree drops everything to rush to her mother's aid, and winds up stuck running her mother's gallery and overseeing construction for the summer. Rick is a workaholic who has taken a break to work at his family's resort for a short time, when his life is constantly disrupted by a dog in the resort pool. As he searches for the owner he bumps into Desiree again, and they soon begin an amazing relationship. But it can only be a summer romance, since both Desiree and Rick have to go back to work. Can they make it work? This book is lovely and romantic and made me laugh! Even though Desiree's mother is flighty and sometimes hurtful her antics (and the antics of Cosmos the dog) were hilarious! I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

    This was my favorite Addison Cole book so far! I say that with every new book, but this surpassed all my expectations. I love the insta-love between Rick and Desiree. Rick was the perfect Hero for me, he knew what he wanted and never wavered. I love that Rick was able to help Desiree become more comfortable within herself. Such a beautiful love story that I never wanted to end!

He's building a business. She's losing herself in responsibilities that are not completely her own. Can two people with so much love to give, make time to find something special together? Cole makes the complicated simple with an overflow of wisdom and heart. Realism does not always have to be complicated to find rewarding.

    Desiree is sweet, beautiful, and somewhat reserved when the novel begins, but as she begins re-connecting with her half-sister Violet, the reader slowly sees a more carefree and adventurous side of Desiree. Rick also seems somewhat serious at the beginning, as well as, steal dealing with the trauma of losing his father during a sailing accident years earlier. However, Rick also has a fun and flirty side which only seems to grow throughout the novel. My favorite thing about Sweet Love at Bayside w Desiree is sweet, beautiful, and somewhat reserved when the novel begins, but as she begins re-connecting with her half-sister Violet, the reader slowly sees a more carefree and adventurous side of Desiree. Rick also seems somewhat serious at the beginning, as well as, steal dealing with the trauma of losing his father during a sailing accident years earlier. However, Rick also has a fun and flirty side which only seems to grow throughout the novel. My favorite thing about Sweet Love at Bayside was the rekindling of the relationship between Desiree and Violet. Yes, I realize it should be all about the romance with Rick and Desiree, but I loved watching these two grow closer and slowly open up about their regrets about their relationship between each other, as well as, with their mother. Both Rick and Desiree reached each other in different ways, but their growing relationship sparked a new outlook on life for each of them, as well as, prompting them both to consider major life changes in order to find happiness. The beauty of it all was that their choices were not only because of the feelings that developed between them but because of an overall desire for a better life. I cannot recommend this series enough to fans of sweet, sexy, contemporary romance. If you are already a fan of Addison Cole, then I assure you that this first novel in this series will completely hook you. For those that haven’t read Addison Cole yet, you are missing out on amazing, meaningful, and heartfelt storylines that are completely addictive, make your heart burst with joy, and just leave you feeling good. Kudos to this outstanding author for bringing readers another incredible series. *Thanks to Beck Valley Books and the author for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest review!

I was really hoping for the relationship between Desiree and her sister to become stronger despite the pain of their childhood separation (I won’t reveal if it does…) Then we have the romance. It started straight away and there was no angst just the beautiful development of love. They knew they were meant to be together. Both of them had family sadness: Desiree because of her mother’s personality and Rick because his father died. I really loved this book. The romance was just perfect and left me with a warm fuzzy feeling

Rick Savage is an interesting character, he is sensitive and has a heart of gold, but the death of his father has influenced the adult he is now. Desiree is an extremely sweet girl who has an absent mother and a "crazy" and "over the top" sister. These two together are like a chocolate marshmallow sundae in the afternoon: too good to be true. You will love this series.

Fate definitely brings these two together in an great way. Desiree is a great woman who has had to deal with an absent mother and a super fun sister.

She is manipulative yet flighty and comes across as a very selfish, childish woman. However, through that personality and choice of actions, her daughters are brought together and form a strong bond. Honestly, I think that was my favorite piece of the story – even beyond Rick and Desiree’s romance! The heat between the pair will make your heart soar and when the relationship brings everything/one together, you’ll feel comforted that the past is healed.  I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

    Sweet Love at Bayside is an adorable read. The book caught my attention from the start. The way Desiree and Rick meet is the beginning of a perfect summer romance.

    While still sweet and romantic, this book did turn up the heat a notch! I think this is the edgiest so far of Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat series. How can it be helped? Rick Savage is smoking hot - in looks and personality. He is romantic and loyal and he has a single - mindedness quality that I have to admire. Having suffered a tragedy at a young age, he has dedicated his life to doing and being his best. Desiree Cleary has not had a typical sweet family growing up. Her mother is a free spirit.

Having suffered a tragedy at a young age, he has dedicated his life to doing and being his best. Desiree Cleary has not had a typical sweet family growing up. Her mother is a free spirit. While she loves her daughters, she took one, Violet, off with her to traipse around the world, leaving Desiree behind with her father. The sisters only got together for short periods over the years and seem to be nothing alike now that they are grown. One thing they have in common is that, when called, they come to the aid of their mother. Although when they discover the truth, they wonder if that was the right decision. Being together gives them an opportunity to get to know each other. It gives us an opportunity to get to know more about the extended families of the Bayside community we've grown to cherish from Addison Cole and Melissa Foster. Spending time at the beach is always more fun with this group. A fence climbing, pool hopping dog adds his own special charms. For Desiree, a preschool teacher, as innocent as her students, this will be a summer of discovery and learning to embrace her own potential. Everyone grows during this book. Sweet, yet edgy, I enjoyed getting to know more fantastic characters. A great summer read.

The cosmic interference that helps them come together just makes the story all the more interesting.

Des is a smart, almost innocent preschool teacher who has grown up without her mom who left with her sister when she was young. She has a hard time dealing with the pain her mom left but comes running when she thinks her mom is dying. Rick is this strong hearted man who is running from his own pain and grief from losing his father in a tragic accident and he has carried the guilt for so long that he must learn to release his guilt and pain to move on. When the two meet it is love at first site even it is just for the summer or so they think. This is a story not to be missed. I definitely recommend it.

    I am so excited to read the next Sweet with Heat series by Addison Cole. This story flowed so smoothly and I enjoyed the linking between this new series and the other Sweet with Heat series at Seaside. Great characters brought this story to life and have opened up the door to another delightful beach read series. I am so excited to read the next Sweet with Heat series by Addison Cole.

    I loved the sweet story of Rick and Desiree and the idea that Cosmos and fate can bring two people together that were meant for one another. Desiree is a Gemini of a character – sweet but with a sultry/sexy side waiting to come out when paired with the right person. She’s innocent and refuses to curse and is embarrassed to discuss anything related to sex. She’s got a heart of gold and is willing to put others before herself. Drawn to the Cape after a cryptic message from her seldom seen mother, D I loved the sweet story of Rick and Desiree and the idea that Cosmos and fate can bring two people together that were meant for one another.

She’s innocent and refuses to curse and is embarrassed to discuss anything related to sex. She’s got a heart of gold and is willing to put others before herself. Drawn to the Cape after a cryptic message from her seldom seen mother, Desiree re-discovers herself and begins to build a relationship with her sister that she always wanted but never had. It’s an interesting concept that the same situation can have wildly different perspectives from the different people involved. On the outside looking in can be a world of a difference to what someone on the inside is actually experiencing. Sometimes those that love us do things that they think are best for us and whether or not that turns out to be true, their intentions were heart-felt and honest.

Addison Cole is back with a brand new series that is perfect for summer reading! Sweet Love at Bayside is the first book in this brand new series, and it was a great summer story. Rick Savage begins his summer back in Cape Cod, surrounded by his family and working with his brother and friends. But being back in the area brings the painful memories of his late father to the forefront. When Rick meets Desiree Cleary by happenstance, he can't help but think that she might be a perfect girl for a summer romance. Desiree Cleary is a good-girl preschool teacher, who is flung to the Cape on a seeming emergency request by her free-spirited mother. After arriving, she quickly learns that she'll be spending the summer instead with her carefree sister, her mom's dog, and her unexpected acquaintance, Rick. Rick and Desiree collide with all the passion of a summer romance, but find that their summer fling could actually be the real thing. First off, I'd like to say that I love Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat books. They are not crude or uncomfortable for me to read, as I'm not really into the more intense side of the romance genre. Sweet Love at Bayside is a great summer story. I can picture everything so clearly, from the quaint little town, to the warm summer days by the ocean. Desiree and Rick's story was quite steamy without being too over-the-top. I love that the author brought in the family aspect for both characters, and used that to build their relationship with each other. Both Desiree and Rick have such different family situations, but their experiences really helped to bond them. I also loved that meeting one another helped Rick and Desiree face their fears and conquer them! Reading this book in just the past few days, however, I thought that the romance between Rick and Desiree might have been a little rushed. I am more of a slow-burn romance reader, and this love story felt very fast to me. I also found some of the dialogue to be a bit cheesy. That being said, I did like this book, and I will be continuing on with the series! The stories are great, quick reads for a day at the beach or the park this summer!

    Sweet Love at Bayside starts out with fate taking charge in every way possible. Rick Savage thinks he has everything he wants, great job, good friend and family, but upon his return to Cape Cod old painful memories come to surface that feel almost unforgiving. The last thing he wants to do is focus or deal with his own issues so when sweet and beautiful Desiree Cleary moves in next door to him the pretty distraction is very much welcomed.

Rick Savage thinks he has everything he wants, great job, good friend and family, but upon his return to Cape Cod old painful memories come to surface that feel almost unforgiving. The last thing he wants to do is focus or deal with his own issues so when sweet and beautiful Desiree Cleary moves in next door to him the pretty distraction is very much welcomed. Though it wasn't planned and clearly Desiree isn't impressed at first Rick knows what he wants and he isn't the one to normally walk away so easily. The steamy chemistry between the two is unmistakable, and Rick feels more alive than he ever has before, but he still has to face some painful memories sooner or later. Would Desiree stick around long enough while he deals with them? Or would she leave once she knew everything he was hiding from?  Desiree rushes to Cape Cod with several things on her mind, the number one thing being her mother. While the relationship is strained, she wouldn't turn her mother down when help is needed and rushed out to see her- only to find out that her mother had entirely different plans of her own. Stuck now watching over the family home and business while her mother travels , she's now got a half sister and a crazy dog to try and live with. Though her arrival was with caution and jolts of surprises, staying around a bit wasn't all that bad after chance encounters with Rick start to heat up. A relationship is the last thing on her mind though, Desiree carries plenty of her own issues and while the chemistry is there, she's not sure what the future holds any longer.  Will Rick and Desiree be able to over come their painful past together? You'll have to find out for yourself !  This was such a great book, really funny, loved how the story flowed and how the characters were written so well. The book made me laugh, cringe as parts ( in a funny good humor way!) and hope for the best outcome . If you enjoy a nice heartwarming romance this book is for you! This is book one of the Sweet With Heat Novels, book two is below, you can read my review on that as well.

    Sweet Love at Bayside is the first in the Addison Cole’s new Sweet with Heat: Bayside Summers series. Desiree Cleary is a sweet, girl next door preschool teacher that leaves her BFF Emery and her life in Virginia to rush to Cape Cod for the summer, after being summoned there by her supposedly ill , flighty, free spirited artist mother. Her older sister Violet also summoned with the message that Desiree’s life depends upon it rushes to be with the estranged sister that she really doesn’t know . Th Sweet Love at Bayside is the first in the Addison Cole’s new Sweet with Heat: Bayside Summers series. Desiree Cleary is a sweet, girl next door preschool teacher that leaves her BFF Emery and her life in Virginia to rush to Cape Cod for the summer, after being summoned there by her supposedly ill , flighty, free spirited artist mother. Her older sister Violet also summoned with the message that Desiree’s life depends upon it rushes to be with the estranged sister that she really doesn’t know . This introduces the reader to the mixed up life that Desiree and Vi have lived at the whim of their mother Lizza.. Rick Savage is a Cape Cod native that has returned for the summer to remodel the resort that he owns with his brother Drake and best friend Dean. An architect and builder he owns an empire based in Washington DC that he runs there in order to avoid memories and his own demons that he refuses to face back home. From the moment that their eyes see each other, before they meet in person, there is a connection. Addison writes these two characters with so much feeling and heart that as I read this book i could see and feel the emotion and experiences. As these two get to know each other better they begin to blossom and come out of their emotional shells. A proper ever conscious teacher Desiree begins to explore her sexy side with the help of tough girl Vi and her mother’s “Self ExplorationShop” that she is now running for the summer. Until Rick, she had never felt the desire to do so. Rick is only too willing to help her with her self discovery, and as he does he discovers more about himself. With Vi and Emery at her side and Rick’s close knit family at his these two have a great, fun, loving support network, that only good can come from. This book is supposed to be Sweet wth Heat, and it delivers on its promise, only i think that this is probably the spiciest that has been written. so far of all Addison’s Sweet books. Emery and Dean’s story is next, and i cant wait to see what level of heat these two will hit.

    Addison Cole is back with a new series! And I'm thrilled to be reading the first book! So let's jump right in… In Sweet Love at Bayside, we meet Desiree Clearly; pre-school teacher and daughter to one of the biggest "free-spirited" people on the planet! Or so it seems.

And I'm thrilled to be reading the first book! So let's jump right in… In Sweet Love at Bayside, we meet Desiree Clearly; pre-school teacher and daughter to one of the biggest "free-spirited" people on the planet! Or so it seems. You see, Desiree had grown up without her mother, or sister, as Desiree mother Lizzy had taken off after the divorce of her parents, dragging Desiree's half-sister Violet with her, leaving Desiree motherless and without a care, which fueled Desiree's determination to NEVER be like her mother. But now her mother has summoned her to her Grandmother's house in Cape Cod Bay, with some form of emergency… So I'm going to stop that deliciousness there, and tell you about the characters. Desiree is Miss Sensible, and you honestly cannot help but love her, she is sassy and vulnerable and you just want to give her a huge hug. Then there is Violet! Oh, my she is spunky! But most of that is just her exterior, she has also been badly damaged by their mother but knows how to put on a good front, but I spent most of the book worried about what emotional damage their mother is going to do to them next! Now the one person who I have not spoken about yet, and who seems to be the main family in this new series and that is Rick Savage and the Savage family. After a devastating loss of his father, Rick runs, as soon as he is able too, even though he has family ties to Cape Cod. But when he decides to take care of some of his family responsibilities, he is hit on the head by something more...and that more is Desiree. This new series from Addison Cole is awesome and this is the first book! Which is why I give Sweet Love at Bayside 5 stars!
