Crashing into Love by Melissa Foster -- Review

I finally got to meet up with Jake Braden.  Throughout the Love in Bloom Series, we have learned of Jake's womanizing ways.  He was painted to be a bad boy player that I figured I would despise him.  I even said that among the Braden bothers and if I was forced to "off" one of them, I'd pick him.  That was until I started Crashing into Love.  

Jake Braden comes from a family filled with hunky men and sweet women.  They are based in Trusty, Colorado but when Jake moves to Los Angeles to become a stuntman he left his slower life behind.  That also included the love of his life.  

When Fiona Steele takes a chance to spend some time on a movie set with her best friend, knowing Jake will be there, she has no idea how he is going to react.  After all the years of heartache and anger, can Jake forgive her?  

I absolutely loved getting know both characters and let my heart change opinions of Jake very quickly.  He is sweet, loving, and very manly!  I want to ride dirt bikes with Jake and Fiona!  Savings their story for the last of this family is perfect!  Well done, Melissa!  You've made me feel complete with another love story! 

Book #12 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #20

Only one woman could hurt ultra-alpha bad boy Jake Braden.
Only one woman can heal him.
Fiona Steele has arrived…

Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.

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