AUDIOBOOK REVIEW by Carole: Whispers at Seaside by Addison Cole

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!

Whispers at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Whispers. The story conveys all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux—an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy—is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt’s publishing contract couldn’t have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, beautiful Mira.

A surprise encounter leads to midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt’s sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira’s not saving his father’s company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

Carole’s Review

I really liked this romance.  This is the tenth book in the Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers series but it works perfectly fine as a stand-alone.  I have read just a few books in the series and had no trouble keeping up with this one.  Addison Cole is the pen name that Melissa Foster uses for the sweeter versions of her books.  Whispers at Seaside is the sweeter version of Seaside Whispers.  Before trying an Addison Cole book, I had worried that it might feel overly tame and a little too PG for my tastes but there is still plenty of heat to be had in these stories even without detailed sex scenes.

This book is about Matt and Mira and I have to say that I really liked both of these characters right away.  Matt is on sabbatical from his job as a professor at Princeton and wants to spend some of his time in Seaside with the bookkeeper that works for his father, Mira.  Mira is a single mother to a bright little boy named Hegan.  I loved how all three of these characters just seemed to fit together from the very start.  Matt and Mira had excellent chemistry while Hegan and Matt bonded over several projects that Hegan proudly called “guy stuff”.

There really weren’t too many obstacles keeping these two apart.  Matt’s time in Seaside is temporary but I felt like that was something that could be worked out from the start.  I had a great time watching these three come together as a unit and I liked the fact that Mira’s son played such an important role in the story.  Matt and Mira do get quite a few moments of time just to be together as adults and I thought that their connection felt very real.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are one of my favorite narrator pairs.  I think that their voices really compliment each other well in this kind of audiobook and I was excited to see that they performed this book together.  I thought that both narrators did a great job with all of the character voices and brought a lot of emotion and some heat to the story.  I think that their talent really added to my overall enjoyment of the story.

I would recommend this book to others.  I thought it was a really well-done romance with wonderful characters.  I had such a good time watching these three make everything work and become a single unit.  I plan to read more from Addison Cole very soon!
