About the book:


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.

My review:

I enjoyed reading about each and every one of Jake's siblings finding love... and in each book Jake was the one that was obviously going to be last one standing.  I absolutely loved finally finding out what had caused him to have such a negative and anti-love attitude.  Fiona really did break him when she left him.

Fiona and Jake's relationship wasn't the whirlwind, love-at-first-sight kind of story as his brothers' and sister's.  They had history.... and a lot of baggage to sort out.  But... they also had history... a hot, true-love, forever, kind of history.  I just loved finding out if, when, and how they would work it all out.

Once again... the Braden family (as a whole) is almost it's own character.  I love that Melissa Foster doesn't ever leave family out.  Everyone should be ask lucky as to have a family like the Bradens.  They all know each other so well.  They are always looking out for each other.  They get excited for one another, they get anxious for one another, the guide each other, and... they give each other a push even when they don't know they need one.

Seriously... still hoping their mom will find love now that her children all have.
