Sea of Love - Review & Giveaway

Sea of Love
The Bradens Series Book Four
By: Melissa Foster

Lacy Snow wasn’t looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living—and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores—and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

Fifteen months—and hundreds of flirty emails, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats—later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy’s phobia meets Dane’s past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when 
tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love.

Review by Marlene Engel
As the founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden is passionate about sharks and properly educating people about them.  He wants to take away the negative stigma and open people’s eyes to the important role that sharks play on this planet.   As you can imagine, a job like this doesn’t allow the luxury of staying in one place for long.  Dane is used to traveling the world, not staying in one place or spending time with one woman enough to form any deep, meaningful relationship.  But all that changed when he met Lacy Snow.  For the past fifteen months, their friendship has developed through e-mails, video chats and text messages.  When they finally reconnect, the feelings that they shared intensifies and their passion ignites.  But Lacy has an incident from her past that she’s afraid will affect their relationship. 

When Lacy was younger, she was attacked by a shark.  She has a scar on her leg that is a constant reminder of that day.  Her first-hand experience with these deadly creatures puts fear in her heart when she thinks about Dane’s career.  Her heart tells her to work through the fear, but her head tells her that the stress of knowing that something horrible can happen to Dane will leave her an emotional wreck.  Can Lacy get past the paralyzing fear that is making her question the future of their relationship?  Or can she put the past and fears behind her and sail the Sea of Love with Dane?

Sea of Love is the seventh book in the Love in Bloom series and fourth book in The Bradens.  It is an amazing book if you’d like to read it as a stand-alone, but I would recommend reading the series (in order) to get full enjoyment!  The story grabs hold of you from the first page and keeps your attention throughout the book.  I can’t say enough good things about this book and series.  It’s a must read and will have you falling in love with The Bradens!
