In SEA OF LOVE...
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.
After 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.

Sharks or love--which to be more afraid of?
I loved coming back to this book a couple years after initially reading it and listening to the audiobook version. Lacy and Dane, who were introduced during Melissa's "Snow Sisters" series, come back together after months of keeping in touch and steamy conversations. This book was great to experience as an audiobook because you can really feel the emotion conveyed between the characters. Between the physical distance that has separated them and the two separate "worlds" they come from, as a reader you really aren't sure if these two are going to overcome fears and reservations to come together. They really do have to build on everything they built in their long distance relationship and explore their fears.
Does love conquer all?
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 he go to Lacy during those 15 months? How these two be able to overcome their fears? Or will they?
When they are together, the passion is undeniable. But, how do they get past their hangups in order to be together? Does love conquer all?
I thoroughly enjoyed following Lacy and Dane on their journey. I laughed and cried for them, and continued to hold out hope that they would pull together in the end.
A sea full of stars
Melissa Foster couldn't have picked a better narrator for her books! BJ Harrison is amazing! I love the way he is able to change up his voice so much from character to character. He even keeps the same voices he uses for the characters that pop in from the other books he has narrated of hers. It is simply wonderful.
This is one of my favorite stories in the Love in Bloom series. Dane & Lacy have to overcome so much to finally be together, the biggest thing being his career. Dane is a shark tagger/researcher and Lacy is deathly afraid of sharks after having had a run in with one as a child. It has been 15 months since Dane & Lacy met at her sisters' wedding in the Bahamas. They have been in constant contact getting to know each other intimately, just not in person. When they finally see each other after all this time, they are already in love. The realities of life cause them quite a bit of problems but their love, which is big as the sea, will see them through.
