Lacy Snow hadn’t been 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 the 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 the two take passion to a whole new level. But when Lacy’s phobia meets Dane’s past love life, and an unexpected tragedy strikes, their steamy romance is upended. Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on and try and navigate their own sea of love.
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. She has a phobia like a huge phobia and she faces it. That is an achievement. I really liked Lacy. I thought she was a very sweet, clever girl and she had clearly fallen for Dane. Big time! It was obvious from the very first chapter how much she had fallen for him even if she didn’t quite know it herself yet.
Kaylie and Danica were excellent sisters. They could have hated Lacy being their half sister and all, but they show nothing but love and concern for Lacy as well as a lot of support.
Dane has what I am becoming to realise is the usual Braden traits loyal, kind, caring and sensitive. Oh and of course stupidly gorgeous. In friendship on fire we catch a slight glimpse of how much he likes Lacy but this multiplies a million times in this book. I really loved seeing the twists and turns in his relationships with Lacy, his best friend Rob and his family.
The Bradens are a loyal family. Once you are in the fold you are protected for life and I love that. I also love Hal’s saying “Family knows no boundaries” it is especially true for this family. I can’t wait to read Savannah and Hugh’s stories in Bursting for Love and Hearts at Play.
