Fated for Love (book review)

NEWLY RELEASED... Book #8 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #16

FATED FOR LOVE is the second of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series

 My Review

Oh, Callie & Wes... I just couldn't get enough of them.  Melissa Foster just knows how to write an amazing romance couple.  From the first moments Callie & Wes are together in the library you just KNOW they're going to be perfect.  The other thing Foster writes well is the sensitive cowboy.  The only way to describe how I feel about Wes is "swoon".  I think I would sigh whenever Wes walked in the room... so I certainly understand Callie's awkwardness.

I have to say I absolutely LOVED the relationship between Callie and her 3 friends.  The book had me reminiscing back to college memories of myself with my own 3 good friends.  I could completely put myself in this book.  I could absolutely imagine us all on the girls weekend at the dude ranch.  We were always teasing each other about the boys we liked, and pushing each other to do things, while being supportive of each other.  I love that this book brought back some of my own amazing memories.
