Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster -- Review and Giveaway

It took me a little bit of time to get through this book, for reasons that I have a hard time talking about.  You see, Rebecca Rivera lost her mother just before she meets Pierce Braden.  While I recently lost my mother I have compartmentalized all of my feelings to help everyone around me deal with her passing.  Rebecca had to compartmentalize everything she was going through to make it through her mother's last weeks of life.  Relating to her in this way, I did not expect to do.  

At first you fall in love with Pierce Braden.  Its so easy.  He is a gentleman in a suit!  Now C'mon, who doesn't love a gentleman in a suit?  Pierce and Rebecca fall so hard for each other.  The respect Pierce has for Rebecca in her set ways and how they learn to compromise together are two aspects of relationship that anyone can hope for.  They're a perfect match!

Everyone should get to know Pierce and Rebecca.  They are people that alone are great, but together are fabulous!  

Book #9 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #18

After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, this is the third of six books.
