Our Sweet Destiny

Unraveling The Truth About Love

The Art of Loving Lacy (on pre-order for May 8th)




I didn’t realize that this is book 3 of a series that doesn’t take away or deter from the storyline. It did take me a few to understand the characters and aspects of the characters back story, I was still able to figure out the couples and the various relationships from small town Weston and the Braden family. I do recommend reading the previous books to understand the characters back stories further. If you are a person who doesn’t like a lot of sex or cussing–this book is for you. Zero cussing. Very few sex scenes that are not overtly explicit.

Cole’s writing is filled with emotion and descriptive language that adds to the emotion of the characters. She also hits the viciousness of New York fashion spot on.

Riley Banks has lusted after Josh Braden since she was old enough to have childhood crushes. She watched him from afar with her best friend Jade who did the same thing for Josh’s older brother Rex. Spending a few hours with Josh at a concert and with his family, just reminded Riley how much and why she lusted after the man to begin with, he’s kind, generous, and sweet. After looking at Riley’s design portfolio, he hired her for his fashion design company as an assistant on the design floor. The more time she spends with him the more she falls for him even after moving to New York. The more involved they become the more Riley has to lose. Her career. Her fashion. Her pride. Her relationship with Josh can all go up in a blaze.

Josh can’t remember a time where he didn’t crush on Riley Banks due to the feud between his family and Jade’s family prevented him from approaching her. He makes excuses to spend time with Riley. Claudia continues to come on to him, more so since Riley started. Once Josh had a taste of Riley, he knew the sweet girl from Weston would be better than his dreams. His dreams are changing thanks to Riley but an office mishap creates a multitude of issues for Josh and Riley.

Unraveling the Truth About Love Synopsis:

Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling.

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.
