4.5 stars

I found A Love So Sweet by Addison Cole well written, well paced and the storyline held my interest all throughout the book.

I enjoyed watching Treat and Max overcome their misunderstanding, learning to trust and to give your heart fully to someone even if you've been hurt before. These two shared a beautiful love and I was very happy they were able to get their happily ever after.

A Love so Sweet by Addison Cole is a “Sweet with Heat”, novel. Book #1 in her new series “Sweet with Heat: The Bradens at Weston”
Featuring Treat Braden and Max Armstrong. Trent is the oldest of the Braden at Weston children. Addison Cole’s characters are multidimensional, with empowered and sassy women, hot, loyal heroes, friends,  family with a sweet romance without graphic love scenes or foul language. I adore flawed characters which adds more drama, and gives readers a better understanding of

My final rating for this book is 3.5 stars because it didn't blow my mind and at the same time it wasn't bad. I will round it up to 4 because as you know I am a kind person when it comes to rating a book. I would have given it a higher rating, but I couldn't get into it for some time. Things got better over time and I liked it overall. This branch of Bradens is a promising one and I will certainly read the rest of the books someday. All of them were interesting for different reasons and it looks ...more

A Love So Sweet (Sweet with Heat: The Bradens at Weston #1) by Addison Cole  
Max and Treat have a destiny that neither can quite figure out. Love at first sight becomes a heart ache that neither knows how to ignore. A Love So Sweet is the beginning of something special. From topsy turvy to happily ever after. Cole crafts a ride wild enough to keep readers on their toes and sugary enough to run away with their hearts.

A Love So Sweet is Treat Braden and Max Armstrong’s story. The sizzling chemistry between Treat and Max drew me into the story. The emotion, passion and pure romance of their romance kept me turning the pages.
I liked that Treat and Max got to know each other as they planned a double weeding in Nassau. The couple talked for several months over the phone as they planned a wedding and the chemistry between them sizzled. Loved that they both had romantic fantasies about each other. They meet in Nass

Loved this book. It is Book 1 of the Bradens but does include some characters from the previous Love In Bloom: Snow Sisters series. The back story gives additional depth to the characters but is not needed to fully enjoy this book. Melissa continues to develop complex characters with all of the drama of real life people. Other than Treat's money, they could be the couple down the block trying to get past misunderstandings & previous hurts to find a way to be together. The scenes descriptions are ...more

This is the sweet version of Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom: Lovers at Heart, The Bradens at Weston.

Treat Braden thinks he knows Max Armstrong inside and out when they first meet, but boy is he wrong. The chemistry is nothing either of them can ignore, but much deeper issues pull them apart, leaving Treat hurt, and questioning a lot more than he wanted to admit. Treat isn't the only one who is hurting either. Max a successful event planner loves her job, yet has her own past demons she's trying to face. While she had been drawn to Treat for many reasons, she wasn't ready to open herself up for ...more

Addison Cole is the sweet alter ego of Melissa Foster and it is a version of her books that is a little less sexy and more sweet.

On that note I say that Max and Treat's story is so good that you can read it in all the versions!

Max and Treat's story is the beginning of it all for me. I remember I was browsing through my favorite book vendor as I wanted to read books in English. I found out this Lovers at Heart and fell in love with Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom world. I have read all the Braden'

In an Oyster Shell -  This is my favorite sweet with heat romance by far. A hint of the cape yet grounded with a Colorado setting, it's refreshing and leaves one turning the pages. 

The Pearls - I am always eager to pick up a sweet with heat novel. This one blew me out of the water. I've followed Addison through her other books, and it was nice to have a new setting. Mostly set in Colorado, the new setting is refreshing with the hint of Cape I've grown to love in these books.

“It’s not you and me; it’s us”.
Some people are harder to forget because they not only touched your heart but imprinted your soul. This amazing love story is about how trust, loyalty, love and friendship can glue back together a broken spirit. When you are surrounded by strong family ties and loyal friends; you can overcome anything ! I couldn’t help myself and fall deeply in love with Treat and his whole family.
I loved the characters; Max and Treat’s chemistry is palpable and you can feel their

Max and Treat fell for each other over many phone calls while helping to plan a wedding. A few hours of passion should've been the beginning of the story, but a misunderstanding quickly made it the end...

Until a chance encounter gives them a second chance at love. Can they get past their histories and give each other another chance at life?

Treat Braden has decided to go home. Someone very important to him is his sister, Savannah. You will find her story in the book titled Bursting With Love – this is not a Sweet With Heat version. Max Armstrong seems to be a little skittish around men. But that doesn’t stop Treat from being enamored with her.

Treat is a man who likes to tease – both with Max and us. I got to the point where there was no way I was turning away – unless I come notice that my tablet’s battery life is

You guys may have heard me talk about Addison Cole who is an altered version of Melissa Foster. She uses this name to write her sweeter books that don't have descriptive sex scenes but more the sweet romantic stories without the rated R stuff. Well, Her newest book is out and again she has hit it out of the park with such a great storyline and amazing love story. You have to read about Treat and Max.

This beautiful story had a little bit of, loss, love, passion, forgiveness and friendship. Not only did we watch a relationship grow between Treat and Max, we also experienced the wonderful Braden family, and got a taste of each sibling, as well as Hal, the patriarch. For those who love a whole lotta family with their romance, this book is a fabulous beginning.

I have been spoiled by Addison Cole's Seaside and Bayside series. It is hard for any other series to shine as brightly in my eyes.
This new series, featuring the Bradens, has characters you'll quickly care about. I love that Addison writes such strong, intelligent female protagonists. Even though Treat Braden makes more money than he can spend in several lifetimes, his love for and loyalty to family are what make him most attractive to me. The description of each of his brothers has me hungrily a

'A Love So Sweet' is the first book in the Weston Braden series by Addison Cole, and it is a sweet love story about Treat Braden and Max Armstrong.

Treat is the eldest of six siblings, he is suave, a business tycoon and is used to always getting what he wants. So when he encounters Max at his cousin's wedding in Nassau, he very much wants her. After an unfortunate misunderstanding that allows them to part ways, both are left with a lingering lasting impression of the other which they are unable

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

A Love So Sweet tells the story of Max and Treat, two individuals who come together after spending one romantic evening together at their friends' wedding. That night in Nassau, both Treat and Max knew that the spark between them was too powerful to ignore. However, Max's past holds her back from taking things any further. To boot, a misunderstanding from Treat has Max flashing back to her hurtful past.
Fast forward a few months, and

A delightful beginning in this series.

A Love So Sweet is a well written book full of romance with characters that are easy to like and connect with. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters in the book. As come to expect, this book drew me in from the very first page. It is a story full of romance, humor, and some steamy heat.

Addison Cole has a way of writing romance stories that warm your heart but still have a bit of sexiness and chemistry to them. “A Love so Sweet” is no exception.

Treat Braden and Max Armstrong have a bit of a back story that is alluded to in this book. They were both involved in his cousin’s wedding and they were attracted to each other at that time but did not act on that attraction.

Fast forward to the present…and they meet again. This time, that chemistry between them is too much to ignore an

Treat can't get Max out of his head. They had one night together and she's all he can think about. He feels terrible about the way he behaved the next morning when he saw her in the lobby with another guy-still in the same clothes she was in when she left him. Old wounds played a major role in his behavior, but he knows that is no excuse. He's going home for some family time & hopefully he can forget about Max.

Treat Braden is everything a woman would want for a partner in a relationship. He is smart, strong, sensitive, caring and, of course, incredibly handsome. But, having lost his mother at an early age, he, as the oldest of 6, took on the responsibility of helping his siblings get through their grief growing up without her.

As the oldest, he carries guilt as an adult, because he left home for college and felt relief about that. He never abandoned his family, and loved them dearly, but was happy to m

A Love So Sweet is another story by the brilliant Melissa Foster's alter ego, Addison Cole. Treat Braden and Max Armstrong got to know each other while planning a wedding over the phone. So when they finally met, sparks shot everywhere, but because of misunderstanding, angst levels suddenly took off. That brought on a push & pull that frustrated me to no end, as I was ready to choke people, but we all know that finding love isn't always perfect.

Treat is the oldest Braden son and a self-made millionaire – described in the book as “… guys who look like Greek gods, smell like hot summer nights, and whose eyes scream of sinful promises…” - he could have any women he wanted. Max is a beautiful women, amazing at her job, but who’s past makes her believe that she doesn’t deserve a happily ever after of her own.

Treat and Max have an intense connection and they once was able to share that for one night but its been a while and they are able to see each other and see where this can take them. In this book they explore boundaries, share secrets and see where their lives are headed with work as things aren't set in stone.

Love this new series by Addison Cole. I really enjoyed meeting the Braden family and especially getting to know Treat Braden and Max Armstrong as well as Treat’s family and Max’s friends along the way. The Braden family is loyal, loving, has each other’s backs and as Hal Braden would say, “Family knows no boundaries.” It was a joy to watch Treat and Max come together and work through whatever problems or obstacles might be in the way. I especially loved how everything came together in the end. T ...more
