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.
I hate sharks but I love the Bradens!
Sea of Love is such a great love story! We get Lacy's story, which I have been looking forward to since we met her at the Snow Sisters wedding! She had met Dane there and now they have been having a virtual relationship of sorts for months. Finally when they get together, the sparks ignite, but it that enough to hold them together? After all, Lacy hates sharks, Has a real fear for a good reason, but Dane's work is with sharks. Can they be together and have this dichotomy? When I first started listening to this, I wanted to nudge Lacy. Get over yourself and be the person Dane needs. But then I really began to understand her and began to think a little about it. She is quite the woman, facing her fears. Dane is a Braden, so we know he is sweet and loving. But he does hold back a bit, and we need to know why. Melissa Foster once again has caught my attention and kept me engaged for another Braden love story. She is a master at weaving original themes, and adding in a realistic story line that is current and real. We get this with Rob and his wife, and it's a look at real love, consequences and adjustments. I love her books and look forward to her next adventure with this family!
BJ Harrison is the voice of the Braden boys and I love him. Each book a different voice for the main character and as we get to see others we know, he consistency keeps the voice from previous books. It's a fun, refreshing listen and I know when I start, I am in for a treat.
Can they make it work?
I liked this one. This wasn’t my favorite book by this author but it was an entertaining listen all the same. This book features Dane, one of the Braden siblings, and Lacy, one of the three Snow sisters. I was looking forward to watching them come together in this book. This story is a stand-alone but fans of the series will enjoy checking in with characters from previous stories.
I am learning that I can be quite the mood reader, especially lately. After a couple of hours of listening to this book, I set it aside to listen to a murder mystery since I just didn’t seem to be feeling this one. I came back to it a few days later and it worked much better for me. I tend to think of these romances as sweeter stories, even though there is a fair amount of heat. I like this kind of story but I have to be in the mood for it.
Dane and Lacy have been talking to each other on the phone and online for the past 15 months. They are more than ready to be together when they finally get the chance to see each other again. There is one big obstacle to any possible relationship. Dan spends his days researching sharks while Lacy is terrified of sharks after surviving an attack as a child. I have to say that this obstacle didn’t make a lot of sense to me. I have been married for over 20 years and have never felt the need to go with my husband to work. I just felt like he could go work with sharks while she goes to her job and the problem would disappear. I just kind of decided to go with it anyway. I did like Dane and Lacy. They had fantastic chemistry with each other and they were both incredibly kind. They both wanted to figure out how to make things work with each other deep down. It was fun watching their relationship grow over the course of the story.
B.J. Harrison once again did a great job with the narration of this story. He does a great job with both the male and female voices and he always speaks very clearly. He has a very pleasant voice and I think that he adds a lot of emotion to the story which added to my overall enjoyment.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I found this to be a nice easy listen and look forward to reading more of this author’s work in the future.
I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.
Love can be found in the Vast Ocean of Uncertainty
Sea of Love is one of my favorite love stories by Melissa Foster. In this book we meet Lacy and Dane again. In the sea of love we have to see if Lacy can handle the uncertainty that is associated with being in love with a man that is always out at sea. Lacy has to decide if she can handle this uncertainty and the fears that she has about being out at sea as well. During the book, if you can keep yourself from skipping to the end, you’ll fall in love with these two adorable characters and their love story too.
