Book #7 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #15

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first 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.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

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

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**


Like I told someone the other day, I love when I get to read one of Melissa Foster's book.  It is my little decadent indulgence.  I just can't get enough of her books, including this one Taken by Love the newest group of the Love in Bloom series starring the Braden cousins.  The characters are so real (even if everyone is gorgeous).  I love that the characters have a maturity about them that you don't always find in other romance novels.  They are willing to face and work on their problems and insecurities.

As with all of her other books, there is just this connection with the book.  There is this great romance aspect to the book,s but also, this demonstration on how we can overcome some of our insecurities.  There is this light of positivity that is contagious.  I guess that is part of why I like this book and all of her other books.  I have struggled with my health for the past few years.  I have fibromyalgia, and have chronic pain which can just pull you down.  I know when I read one of her books that my spirits will be lifted, and I will be left with a smile on my face.  That is exactly what happened with this book.

I give this book 5 stars, and a big smiley face.  I think people young and old will like Taken by Love.  Of course, it is intended for mature audiences due to some adult content.  If you get the chance pick up this book and all of her other ones, too.  This book can be read as a stand alone book, but I strongly suggest read all of the books.  You won't be disappointed.
