Tour Review: Sea of Love (Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters & The Bradens #7) by Melissa Foster

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
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.
I want to start of with saying I haven't had the chance to read the previous books in the series, but it certainly is possible to read them separately. If you have read the other books it is just more fun, because a lot of the characters makes appearances in Sea Of Love.

So while I didn't know the secondary characters in this book it was pretty easy to follow, who is who and how they are all related.

Let's just focus on the two main characters, Lacy and Dane. They met at her sisters's wedding about fifteen months ago and the sparks were flying. Because of Dane's job, they did not have the change to meet up since then, so all those months they mostly talked through Skype and email. I liked that this was a chance for them to get to know each other without being able to act on physical attraction. No instant love for these two, rather a connection that grew over time.

After that long separation, they finally get to meet again and that sexual tension is definitely hanging in the air. There is also that question of "what now?". They got together, some hot stuff happened and now they have to decide how they will go on from this. Lacy has her job near Boston as a marketing rep and a big promotion is just around the corner. While Dane with his foundation has to travel a lot around the world. Add the fact that Lacy is terrified of sharks and they are Dane's life and bread, well it is not looking good.

They both want this relationship. While Dane is trying to figure out just how to do that, Lacy keeps pushing the idea aside. She does not see how they will possible manage with her fear of sharks. It was fine the first time I heard this excuse, after twenty times I was no longer buying it. To me it seemed more like Lacy was scared the relationship might fail, so she kept pushing that excuse out there. It wasn't like she needed constantly to go on expeditions with him, so I didn't really see the problem.

Besides that I really enjoyed the book. It was fun and sweet. The plot was a bit predictable, but there was one twist I did not see coming, so that was interesting. If I had more time I could easily read the entire series back to back.
