Crashing into Love by Melissa Foster and GIVEAWAY

Book #12 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #20

Only one woman could hurt ultra-alpha bad boy Jake Braden.
Only one woman can heal him.
Fiona Steele has arrived…

Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.
**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My Thoughts…

I am feeling sad now that I have finished Jake Braden’s story.    He is the last of the Braden brothers, well from that side of the family.    I feel like I am leaving my book crushes behind.    Yet, I know that Melissa Foster will continue to entertain me and introduce me to more book crushes in the stories of the cousins yet to come in this series.  

Jake is amazing.  Of course he is, he’s a Braden.   I love that he fought his broken heart and finally gave into what his heart and head told him he really wanted.  I wanted him and Fiona to get back together, yet I really just wanted him to be true to himself.    The ache he felt was so heartbreaking that it actually made him a person that he did not like.    The first time he runs into Fiona and blows her off I could hear the wall around his heart start to break and was excited for what was to come.

Fiona, oh Fiona.   She made an immature choice when she was younger and it haunted her forever.    I believe that her choice made both her and Jake the people they are and if that choice had not had happen their relationship may have ended very differently. As she grew up and started to understand life and what she wanted from life, Fiona knew that she had to fix what was broken.   She put herself out there, stepped out of the normal bounds, and put her feelings before everything to make her life right again.   

Of course, I recommend Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom Series.  Each book can be read as a standalone, but are more enjoyable when read in order as a series.
