In A LOVE SO SWEET…
Treat Braden wasn’t looking for love when Max Armstrong walked into his Nassau resort, but he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield to the sweet, sensual woman beneath. One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.
A chance encounter brings Treat and Max together again, and it turns into a night of intense passion and honesty. When Max reveals her secret, painful past, Treat vows to do everything within his power to win Max’s heart forever—including helping her finally face her demons head-on.
A Love So Sweet 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 spicier romance, pick up the steamy edition, Lovers at Heart, Reimagined, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name.

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 dwindling. There are relationship ups and downs, which helps to make the storyline seem so realistic, and that’s part of what keeps my attention. I ended up feeling the need to check out a movie festival. A nearby town has a small one that will be coming up soon. I would say that this book is an incentive to set the mood but I’m afraid that the films would just draw my attention away from our couple. But it would be a good way to people watch and see if I can scope out anyone that would fit my preconceived notion of our couple.
I love how the author takes a story that originally had plenty of heat and change it up enough that she leaves more to my imagination. You get to decide how you want to fill in the blanks if you so choose. Treat’s theme seems to be patience but there were times that word became particularly tough for me. Our main characters are the ones to decide when things were to be revealed – we have no choice but to sit back and enjoy the ride. They show the difficulties that can sometimes happen when trying to develop a new relationship.
Our author has me feeling as if the Bradens are including the reader into their family unit. I made a promise to myself that I would make the trek across the state of Massachusetts. Will need to make sure my tablet has plenty of power because there are plenty of this author’s work that will be coming with me. But since the Bradens are just getting started with us, I may have to make multiple trips since I expect to get to know this family and their loves for a little while more. I’ll have to scope out the perfect place to sit and shut off the rest of the world so I can get pulled into all the characters that have a connection to Wellfleet. Ms. Cole is getting me ready for Rex’s story so my trip may have to be postponed for a little while because I have at least one more book to put on to my Cape reading list. Plus by the time I got to the end of this story I was still left wanting to know more about Savannah.
