Rex Braden is wealthy, hard-working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over 40 years, moves back into town.
After ditching a horrific relationship - and her veterinary practice in the process - Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.
Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny - and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.

I loved this book and the one before this. It had the right amount of sex scenes and regular relationship interactions. I will definitely read all the other books in the series.
Destined for Love is about Rex Braden and Jade Johnson. Rex and Jade's father's have been in a fued for 40 years. So for them to fall in love is definitely not a good thing. Both Rex and Jade are loyal to their families and do not want to hurt them. They can't stay away from each other no matter how much they try. Lucky for them love conquers all!!! Book has some amazingly hot sex. Sexy Rexy is definitely one of my favorite Braden men. Narration by BJ Harrison was on point again. Nice job keeping all the different male and female voices different.
A long standing family feud is keeping Rex Braden and Jade Johnson from the happy ending they both deserve and want. Rex’s dad and Jade’s dad grew up as best friends and continued that friendship into adult life. Then one day it all fell apart and they no longer would even acknowledge each other. The rules were set to the kids of the Johnson and Braden families to not have ANY contact with the other family. But love comes flying above the feud. Rex and Jade have circled around each other since they were teenagers, now as adults they cannot keep their feelings in check. Their hope is that their families will come together and support each other, or their only option will be to move out of their hometown so they can find the happy ever after they need.
Destined for Love is book 5 of 9 in the Love In Bloom series. I cannot say it is my favorite, since I have loved each of the stories for their own tale, but it is definitely one of them.
Rex is hot from the minute he is introduced to the reader in Book One of the Bradens stories and I could not wait to know what would come of him. I knew and hoped that his true love would come riding in and turn his life upside down. My favorite part of this story is certainly the hot and steamy scenes where there were no holds barred and the love and sexiness shined between Rex and Jade. But this story also showed how two adults, who love their respective families, can stand up to their fathers and make them realize that they had made mistakes and that forgiving was part of living in order to be able to live their lives together.
I easily give this book five stars, more if that is possible. There are some extremely sexy and hot scenes that are not suitable for all readers. Once you start reading Destined for Love you will not be able to put it down. I highly recommend you read all the books in this series, but it is not necessary to enjoy this book.
"Rex and Jade smoking hot!!"
Having read this book countless times it was great to hear it in audio book. The Love between Rec and Jade comes through powerfully as does the family feud. Definitely one to listen to as the emotions are so powerful.
