If you’ve followed along with my blog you’ll know that one of my favorite things about being a blogger is having the opportunity to read brand new books before they’re released to the public. Today I’m going to share my review of Addison Cole’s latest book in the Braden series ‘Unraveling the Truth About Love’ and I have to say it’s her best one yet. Scroll on to read my review, learn more about the series AND enter the giveaway!

My Review of ‘Unraveling the Truth About Love’
One of the main themes of Unraveling the Truth About Love is the importance of family and having faith in the people you love. When you love someone you have to trust that they’re the kind-hearted honest person you know them to be, even when external forces are trying to convince you otherwise. You have to trust in your heart and know that you can’t always determine what will happen next in life but you certainly can control how you react to what happens. When the truth rises to the surface the liars are the ones that drown in the riptides and the honest ones are the ones that make it out as winners.
Josh and Riley’s story is so sweet and addictive and you’ll find yourself rooting for them to get through the chaos surrounding them and make things work. Living and working in New York City is a big change for a small-town girl, especially when she’s in love with someone that could threaten to ruin her reputation that’s barely been built. Despite being in a world completely different than her own Riley’s fierce determination paired with her natural talent for design make her a force to be reckoned with and trust me, you want to be on Riley’s team.
I loved that this book was a bit unlike the others I’ve read by Addison Cole because the main characters work in the cutthroat fashion business. Much like all of Addison Cole’s other novels, I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and highly recommend it to all who enjoy sweet romances.
My Rating: 5/5 Stars
Side Note: This is the third book in the Weston Bradens series and the end of the book includes a sneak peek to the fourth book ‘The Art of Loving Lacy’. Check out my reviews for the books that come before this one!

In Unraveling the Truth About Love…
Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break–working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and–just maybe–explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.
Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.
When Josh and Riley’s friendship heats up, every steamy kiss, and every passionate caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley’s mentor accuses her of stealing the design.
Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry–and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.
Unraveling the Truth About Love 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, Friendship on Fire, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.

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.
Our Sweet Destiny (Sweet with Heat: Weston Bradens, Book 2)
After ditching a troubled relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is…until her horse is injured and the son of the man her father has been feuding with for more than forty years comes to her rescue. She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.
Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.
Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained as Rex and Jade find out if true love really can conquer all.

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.
