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. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name.

NICUnurse’s Review of Unraveling the Truth About Love by Addison Cole
This was a somewhat new to me author. I’ve read a few of her more steamy books, but I had never read her sweet with heat pen name books. Now I’m wondering why I never picked up one of these books before! Sometimes it’s just nice to read the story…without all the other stuff. No, I’m not a prude. But lately, it seems like more and more authors are adding more and more sex scenes. And while I’ll admit to liking a sex scene or two, especially if they are pretty steamy, I want an actual plot too, you know? So this was quite a refreshing read for me.
Unraveling the Truth About Love is not the first book in this series, and while it can be read as a standalone book, I felt like I was missing a little of Riley and Josh’s backstory. Like maybe their “instant” attraction in this book had more of a slow burn than it felt jumping in here. So I’ll be grabbing the other books post haste!
I just want to start off by saying that I loved Riley’s character. She stayed true to herself despite a quick rise from obscurity to a name to be watched in the fashion world. And she really did want to believe the best in everyone. But there were so many times I wanted to smack Josh for his doubt. If they truly lived in a small town growing up, had watched each other from afar and now had a brother and bestie dating, he shouldn’t have been quite so wishy-washy. So while that was annoying (a few times), I don’t rate books on how *I* think the author should have had the plots twisting and turning or how the characters should have acted. These are their stories, not mine. I simply rate on how well a book is written. And it’s strictly MY opinion.
NICUnurse’s Rating: Addison Cole’s writing was really good, but I felt like I was missing something in the getting to know the characters’ department. Maybe it’s because I jumped into the series in the middle, but I just felt like there was more to Josh than I was getting from this book. So I’m going to recommend you read them in order. With that said, this was a nice, quick, refreshing read by a talented writer. So…it’s getting a full 4 out of 5 propellers from me! Now…I’m off to get the first two books in this series, and I hope I have time to read them soon!!
