Publisher Description

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling. Addison Cole is the sweet-romance pen name of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole novels are the sweet editions of Melissa's steamy romance Love in Bloom series, and are written to stand alone, or to be enjoyed as part of the larger Sweet with Heat series.

Sweet with Heat novels convey all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you are looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition of this title, Heart at Play, by Melissa Foster.


Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best mother she can be.

The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn’t expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off—and steals his every thought thereafter.

When Brianna’s perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn’t believe in fate and a woman who doesn’t believe in true love find happiness in each other’s arms forever?

And Then There Was Us is truly a romantic story! When Hugh Braden car racer gets setup on a blind date in a sports bar and meets Brianna a single mother bartender at the bar. Brianna and Hugh are instantly attracted to each other but she won’t date until her daughter turns eighteen. Brianna is a struggling and Hugh becomes the knight in shining armor. I loved how Hugh goes out of his way to create beautiful memories for Brianna. Addison Cole wrote a beautiful romantic story that is heartwarming and a strong sense of family. I received a free copy of this book for an honest review of it.

One of my favorites

This is one of my favorite books in the Sweet with Heat stories. I loved it. I really felt as though Hugh and Brianna could feel the connection right away, because sometimes you just *know*. I loved how protective Brianna felt for Layla as well, but Hugh showed her what a good man is and how he treats them both is very swoon worthy. Brianna had a few issues to get over, but when a situation came up and Hugh proved himself to her she was able to deal with them, as well as see what kind of man he is. They both showed a lot of growth in a short time, especially from what we had seen of Hugh in the previous Braden books. I absolutely loved the ending, it was great to see the whole family together, and to get a peek at the Remingtons.
