About this ebook

Discover the magic of the Bradens and fall in love with Addison Cole's rich and romantic storytelling.


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.


More than a year—and hundreds of flirty texts, 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.




The Art of Loving Lacy is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you'd expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you're looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Sea of Love, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa's sweet-romance pen name.

The Art of Loving Lacy is a sweet, heart warming romance. Lacy and Dane had a lot of chemistry, but their timing has not worked out. Finally they are reunited. But Lacy, having been bitten by a shark, has a fear of them. Dane spends his life tagging sharks - one way of dealing with his relationship fears. As they spend time together, this couple has to work at overcoming their fears and finding their happy ending. This book is another engaging tale from Addison Cole. I just have to set aside time when she releases a new book because I can never put them down.

It took me a bit to get into this story, but once I did it was hard to put down I really liked Lacy and Dane. They had a long distance relationship going on when they finally see each other in person the spark is just has hit between. Their biggest obstacle is Dane's job. There is a lot of emotion between the characters, but towards the end boy does this book hit me in the heart. It's a good installment to the series. I can't wait for the next sibling to meet their match.

I love the title of this book, The Art of Loving Lacy. If you have read any other books by Ms. Cole you know her hero's make their love an art form and Dane is no exception. It took me a while to warm up to Lacy but when I did I loved her so much. One of the best things about a Cole book and/or series is getting to catch up with all of the characters from past books that you love so much, it's like a reunion. I loved the little bit of push/pull in this book with both Dane and Lacy. They both have to decide if their love is strong enough to overcome their fears, but don't fear this Ms. Cole always gives us the perfect ending. I can't wait to see these "friends" again!
