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

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


Melissa Foster has done it once again with another fabulous romance book that you are bound to love.  She keeps thrilling us with these wonderful hunky men.  I don't know about you, but I keep falling in love with all of her characters.  In fact, maybe it is time to move to Colorado to see some of these hunky men. Oh yea, the Bradens are fictional.  Oh, well, a girl can dream or just read about them.

This book will have you believing in fate, and dreaming of what might be in future or remembering when you fell in love.  My man might not be has hunky as Wes Braden and I'm definitely not the sexy Callie, but I definitely believe that it was fate that brought us together.

The only thing I don't like about these books is that they are never long enough for me.  I read these so fast, and never want them to end.  I love that I can live vicariously through these books.  The books are so vivid.  Of course, you might feel like a Peeping Tom during the steamy love scenes.  Your significant other might like it when you read this book, too, if you know what I mean.

I give this book 5 stars.  This definitely is a book meant for mature audiences, though, due to those steamy love scenes.  You can read this as a stand alone book, or read the series in its entirety.  I strongly suggest that you read the whole series though.  You will love the whole series.
