Dreaming of Love by Melissa Foster with Giveaway

Book #11 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #19

Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.

Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

My Thoughts….

I am not sure what to say about this book that I have not said about the rest in this series.   They are all absolutely amazing.    I started with book #1 in the Love in Bloom series and am always anxiously waiting the next book to be released.   I always think that the male in that book will be my favorite, yet with each book I get a new favorite.   

Dae Bray (sigh) is amazing.    The romance, the love, the understanding all makes him the best so far.   The fact that Dae and Emily have pretty much opposite jobs, yet he doesn’t think twice about it being an issue between them makes his true feelings shine through.    There is never a doubt that Emily and Dae will end up together.  

From the first time Melissa Foster brought Emily into the books, I wanted to know her story.     I knew she would find her happy every after, I mean she is a Braden, but who, when, and where???   Of all the female characters in this series she is the toughest, the roughest, and the most deserving.   Her upbringing of being raised by a single mom with all those brothers around her could not possibly be easy.    Then she goes on to be so successful, yet all alone.  I was thrilled with Dreaming of Love came out and was Emily’s story.   

Once again, I cannot recommend this story and series enough.   Each one is its own story, yet by reading them in order you get a much better feel for the characters and who belongs with who and how then ended up there.    There are so many characters left that I need to know more about I patiently await the next book in this series.   

THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

  1. It's sounds like he's the perfect catch for Emily xx

  2. Even being opposites, they were the perfect couple.

  3. Charlotte, I just love you. You're so invested in the Love in Bloom books and I can't thank you more for it. I'm so happy you loved the newest Braden romance and I look forward to stopping by again in the near future XO

  4. First I would have to find a guy (or maybe find one once I get there). I would love to go to a nice quiet beach where it is sunny and warm and the drinks are nice and cold 😊.
