Dreaming of Love by Melissa Foster -- Book Review and Giveaway

Oh, where do I start with telling you the things I absolutely love about Emily and Dae?  Okay, okay... First off, I want to go to Tuscany!  Before reading Dreaming of Love, I hadn't thought twice about going to Tuscany.  Emily's experience there makes me want to hop on a plane and travel!  I'd take my husband of course, but it would be beautiful!!

Next, Dae is dreamy!!  A hard working man that blows up things for a living?  That's hot and exciting!  Plus he is in Tuscany!  

As you get to know Emily Braden a little better, you learn that she is just like her brothers.  Driven and family oriented are two ways to describe this girl!  As she is waiting for love to come her way, she didn't expect to find it in Tuscany.  She fell in love with the scenery, a magical tree, and so much more!  

This magical Olive Tree is what the townspeople call The House of Wishes.  The women in the community believe if they make a wish at this tree, and sometimes even placing the wish on a piece of paper and tucking it into the tree's crevices, the wish will come true.  The hope caused by these wishes is such a magical thing!  If everyone could find something so powerful to believe in, the world might be a better place. 

Book #11 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #19

Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.

Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.
