In Dreaming at Seaside....
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 14-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 14 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?

I just listened to this in audiobook format.
This was a super lovely story, even better the second time around. I loved the narrator, She truly gave Bella the spirit that it was shown in the book. I loved it.
I felt this audiobook really showed the ‘feeling’ I got when I read the book. Not sure how to explain it, it was a free spirit thing, fun times and letting go. Hard to convey with her voice but the narrator did it!
Great experience once again for this series. A great choice of narrator and loved the story… again.

This time we have Bella and Caden. They meet under very… awkward circumstances, lol. Still, it sure was an impression for the both of them. ;-)
Anyway, I loved Bella and her fun spirit. She had a serious job and lived a serious life, but she let her hair down while at vacation and enjoyed a good prank. I loved how she took this huge risk and moved to the beach. I gotta say, one hell of a move (literally and figuratively).
Caden was cool as well, just in a different way. He was a dad, so his life until meeting Bella, was all about his son. It sure took him by surprise to have feelings for someone else.
I loved this couple, and how they complemented each other. Not too serious, not too wild.
This was a lovely and sweet read, and really looking forward to reading more in this series.

Dreaming at Seaside
Dreaming at Seaside is the second book in the second book in Addison Cole's Seaside Summer Book series. First off, listening to the audiobook, I liked that the narrator (who is the same narrator from the first book) did a great job of making each of the female friends have a distinctive voice and that she also kept that same distinction in this second book from the first book. I've listened to books that have not dine this when using the same narrator. So right off the bat, I appreciated what Melissa Moran was able to do with the narration.
Now, the story. I loved Bella's story. The idea of starting over and being able to live your "Dream" is an ideal situation for many people. Unfortunately, some people don't get that opportunity. I thought Addison Cole did a great job of showing how scary and difficult it can be to upend you life. But how, in the end if it truly is your dream, it's definitely worth it.
Also, I think the father / son relationship between Caden and Evan is one of the best dipictions of a parent dealing with a teenager that I've ever read (listened to). It felt very real and displayed many real-life worries that every parent faces as their child grows.
Bella and Caden together were great, but I liked that their relationship didn't influence their individuality except for the fact that they're better together than apart.
While I enjoyed the first book, I think that this second book surpassed it. i loved again seeing the female friendships and I look forward to getting the other two women's stories in upcoming books.
