Audiobook: Narrator – B.J. Harrison
I am beginning to expect this narrator for each book in this series and I’m more than okay with that. He does an exceptional job of bringing a deeper element of emotion to the story than reading the book alone would do. This particular performance hit me at the right time and I was more than ready for some B.J. Harrison as his smooth voice pulled me into this story.

Lacy and Dane have been texting, skyping and a few other naughty-ish things online for the last f

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 l

Lacy and Dane first met 15 months ago at her sister’s wedding: but distance and careers kept them apart. They’ve managed to keep in touch via telephone, Skype and email: but each loves the job they have, and neither is particularly ready for a full-on relationship. Lacy is working in her dream job: marketing and promotion, and she’s completely comfortable doing just that. Sure, she’s attracted to Dane, and she does dream of him, not to ment

I read this years ago and failed to rate it. This week I began this series for the second time. Love Melissa Foster's series!!!

This was a very good love story. I enjoyed it but had a bit of struggle with the safety aspect.

H and h met at a family wedding and they both fell and fell fast. He began calling, texting and skyping her afterwards and they talked almost daily, from what I understood. This went on for fifteen months until the next family wedding where they planned to spend the weekend to

I was so excited to read that Lacy was coming back in this story. The last I read about her was at Kaylie and Danica's wedding. I read every book waiting for her to make another appearance and my luck finally changed and I got my wish.

Dane Braden is smokin' hot and an amazingly caring guy. We learn about his work with sharks through the Brave Foundation. His whole life revolves around teaching others about sharks and why they do the things they do. Enter Lacy Snow who has a fear of sharks ever s

We met Lacy and Dane both in the last Snow sisters book (Sisters in White). We hear the ribbing of Dane from his sibling throughout some of the other Braden books, but now we get Dane and Lacy finally. These two went through a lot to get to there little piece of happiness. We get to see some of the good characters/couples from previous books in the Love In Bloom series. The Snow sist

Okay, you all know how much I love the Braden brothers. Add Dane to that ever-growing list of book boyfriends. Shark tagger, lover, sex-god - that is Dane. Hot, sexy, tan and oh, so delicious.

I honestly don't know how Melissa Foster keeps up with all these sexy characters. Lucky Lacy Snow (Danica and Kaylie's sister) met Dane when Danica married Blake, but that was 15 long months ago. During that time they've kept up with one another via Skype and messaging, but when Treat and Max get married D

I love that each book in this series builds on the storyline and lives of the characters, but can, easily, be read as a standalone novel. Sea of Love reintroduces us to Dane Braden and Lacy Snow. Sparks flew when these two met at Lacy's sisters wedding and, of course, sparks flew. For over a year, the two have been keeping in touch regularly via Skype, steamy phone calls, and flirtatious text messages and emails - a modern day romance, right?

Now it would not be a true romance novel if there wasn

I was very expectant when I began this book, and it met every one of my hopes. I don’t read romances, but I do read Melissa Foster. I love her writing and have been following her Braden brother series. I am excited to experience Lacy Snow and Dane Braden’s tumultuous fight for their love to prevail. This book, which is actually in The Bradens’ series, re-introduces us to Dane Braden, whose work is centered on one of Lacy’s greatest fears. She’s had anxiety and panic attacks her whole life after ...more

I loved the Lacey Snow character in this book but I had a much harder time with Dane Braden the second oldest of the Braden siblings. No question Dane loves Lacy. Just not as much as he loves his job. Je's a good man. Like all the Bradens he's honest, caring, loyal and passionate about his work trying to change public opinion about sharks. My issue with Dane is that despite his love for Lacey he'd rather let her walk away than give up the dangerous part of his work to ease her concerns. And hone ...more

Right now in literature, I think the Braden brother have got to be my favorite men. Dane is the book boyfriend that I have been looking for to add to my list. He is everything you could want and more. He is the founder of the Brave Foundation, and is always somewhere studying and tagging sharks. He is a risk taker which makes him all the more appealing. With his life that he leads though he has never seen himself settling down, but when he met Lacy Snow at his cousin's wedding that all changed. ...more

I want to be Melissa Foster's book tester- you know like the kitchen helper you get to taste the first batch of whatever is cooking? Yeah, I'd like to be the first to read whatever Foster whips up for writing. Really, I'm not sure how she'd go wrong really. With that being said, I will say book 4 in the Love in Bloom series - Sea of Love is wonderful!

Dane Braden and Lacy Snow met at a cousin's wedding in a previous book ( don't worry all books are stand alone , you will enjoy) After the wedding,

This review was originally posted on Star Crossed Reviews I received this book for free for a Blog Tour in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.The first few chapters are set at Max and Treat's wedding and all I can say is man does Treat know how to throw a wedding. It was beautiful. I loved it and after hearing so much about the dress in Friendship on Fire it was excellent to finally picture Max in it.

Lacy Snow is a brave woman.

What can I say? Another amazing audiobook!!!

I want more and more of every character because I love them that much. Every audiobook in this series has updates on previous characters which is why I love them so much.

Dane and Lacy are one of my favourites. Lacy is the half sister is Danica and Kaylie from the Snow Sisters and she and Dane met at the double wedding in Sisters in White. They reconnect in this audiobook at Treat and Max's wedding.

The Braden saga continues with Dane Branden taking the plunge. Dane and Lacy have only actually seen each other once in the past 15 months. Their attraction was immediate and strong but their careers drove them in different directions and kept them apart, physically, for over a year.

Theirs is a story of learning to overcome fears. They’re both young and idealistic, determined to follow the path they have set for their lives. They’d met at Lacy’s sister’s wedding 15 months earlier and were wildly

Sea of Love is part of the Love in Bloom series, and I was happy that I had listened to the previous books in the series, so I understood the relationships between all the characters. However, I easily could have followed the story on it's own. I love anything written by Melissa Foster, but I found Sea of Love to have more angst than previous books. If you enjoy a book with lots and push and pull between the hero and heroine, this definitely fits the bill. The couple in question are Lacy Snow an ...more

This story is Lacey Snow and Dane Braden. Really enjoyed the story itself from how it started, and we get to hear from a lot of the Braden’s and family friends. Then the story narrows towards Lacey and Dane. After a long time of texting, skype and calling – Lacey and Dane are finally in the same space and we’ll see if they can be more than friends. There was a lot that happened during their story – both good and bad and it was interesting to watch our couple to see how they would handle things. ...more

This author has a talent for creating characters & storylines that grab her readers’ hearts from the beginning & don’t let go. They become emotionally invested in the story & feel the same emotions the characters are going through. The compulsion to read the book from cover to cover is hard to resist since there isn’t a good stopping point until the end.

15 months. It took 15 months for Lacy and Dane to be in the same physical space again. It took Max and Treat's wedding to finally make it happen. The attraction was immediate and likely obvious to everyone around them. While the attraction was undeniable, what was it that kept them apart for so long? Work? Promotions? The Brave Foundation mission of helping sharks?

Lacy, is afraid of sharks due to an experience from her childhood. Dane isn't sure, at first, what he is afraid of, but why didn't h

I love the Bradens. I love their family dynamics and the sage advice of their father. This book starts at Treat and Max's wedding with Dane and Lacy doing the deed. Both just acted on lust and not on ramifications/consequences.

Neither has any clue what is about to happen ...

Fears, anxiety and panic take over. Will Lacy be able to overcome her issues? Will Dane be able to overcome his issues. Will they be there for each other and help the other through?

This story surprised me a little. I alway

Lacy Snow met Dane Braden at her half-sisters wedding in Nassau some fifteen months ago. Dane was traveling the world over in and out of the water trying to save sharks. There had been an attraction between them and they had been in contact with each other ever since. When Dane's brother Treat and Max got married, they met again. Lacy was an account

This book wasn't just a love story, but an educational story about overcoming your fears. Dane and Lacy are very intense, and the book even addresses issues of mental health, like anxiety and panic attacks. If you've ever suffered from anxiety or a panic attack, Lacy is a character to relate to. Dane, he's a bit on the selfish side, job wise, until the end. Life isn't all about work. There is a life to live in between with emotions, ups and downs, family and friends.

I enjoyed the rawness behind
