Review: Hot for Love by Melissa Foster Leave a comment


I have been eagerly awaiting Nick, and Trixie’s story, and Foster did not disappoint. This is the seventh book in the Bradens and Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill- Oak Fall series. Like all the other books in the series, readers can read it as a standalone. All of her books are inter-connected as we see characters from this series and others playing a role in this book.

Hot for Love was a sweet and passionate friend to lover’s romance. Trixie and Nick have known each for sometime now and she has been crushing on him ever since their first meeting. Nick, however, is clueless as to Trixie’s feelings towards him. This made for some serious moments of jealousy on his part. Also, he feared damaging their friendship and so he suffered in silence.

Trixie Jericho had dreams of operating a miniature horse business. However, her family failed to take her seriously and so she turned to the one person who had always believed in her abilities, Nick Braden. In his desire to help her achieve her dreams, he offers her the use of his ranch, which of course would require her to stay with him for a month. Can Nick survive the month or will he throw caution to wind and take their relationship beyond friendship?

Nick and Trixie worked well together, both as friends and as a couple. I had a great time watching Trixie break down Nick’s walls, brick by brick. She challenged him and pushed him to a better version of himself.

Nick struggles with his feelings for Trixie jumped off the pages. He had given upon the idea of love believing it brought only destruction. However, with Trixie he learns that not only does love not destroy it had the power to heal.

I enjoyed watching Nick and Trixie’s  relationship developed from friends to lovers. Every aspect of their relationship felt authentic, which made it easy to buy into their romance.

Foster provided some interesting information regarding miniature horses and their use as a therapy tool. I found these details quite fascinating.

The bonds of family and friendships featured heavily in the story, which is a signature feature of Foster’s stories. The banter and the moments shared were delightful and riddled with emotions.

I had a wonderful time with this latest offering from Foster and would definitely recommend it and the previous books to fans of contemporary romance. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

EMBRACING HER HEART




Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]




Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross. 




Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape.

When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.




Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before Ping in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.




Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.

MAKING YOU MINE




Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]Knox Bentley never liked the pomp and circumstance that came with being wealthy.

SWEET, SEXY HEART – Releasing 4th August







Amber Montgomery is perfectly happy with her quiet life, running her bookstore, taking long walks with Reno, her Labrador retriever seizure dog, and spending time with her close-knit family. She’s never needed thrills the way some of her sisters have. In an effort to control her epilepsy, she tries to avoid anything that creates too much excitement or stress—including relationships. When Amber hosts a book signing for famed-athlete-turned-author Dash Pennington, he’s everything she’s spent her life avoiding: loud, aggressive, and far too handsome, as proven by the hordes of women who surround him everywhere he goes. Amber can’t ignore the sparks flying between her and Dash, but this is a no-brainer for her: Ignore their chemistry and hold her breath until he leaves town.




Dash Pennington has spent his life running. Running the ball in for a touchdown, running from town to town to appease his public relations reps, and running into the arms of too many women to count. He’s also an expert at protecting—his reputation, his sisters, and lately, his sanity. But he’s ready to make a change. When he comes to the sleepy little town of Oak Falls, Virginia, and witnesses the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen living the life he craves, she refuses to have anything to do with him. But now that Dash has found the one thing he doesn’t want to run from, he’ll stop at nothing to win her over.
