Wow....Sam is such a complex character. In Melissa's books usually the female makes the most changes, but in this book it's the male. I'm so happy about that. I like to see different angles that an author can take. Sam is a ladies man with a reputation to match his wild ways....thats until Faith turns him down for a date. It's not the first time it's happened to Sam, but it doesn't happen often. Sam reevaluated his life to be the man Faith needs. Even when friends and family aren't happy about the coupling, love wins out!
The audio of his book is just amazing. It gives you emotion and you feel like you are right there.

I think this book had one of the hardest hurdles that Melissa's couple have to overcome. This book was so heartwarming and you can't help but fall in love with Cole and Leesa. How Cole was still single is beyond me, but I'm so glad he was. Leesa needed him and he needed her just as bad. A must read. Now can't wait for Sam's audiobook.
BJ does such an amazing job telling this story.

In Healed by Love, Nate Braden has loved his best friend's younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he's always kept his feelings at bay. Now he's back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer 16 years old - but there's an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn't make it out alive.

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 the final book to the Trusty Braden's this one didn't disappoint. I like the way that Jake and Fiona have history. It makes the fact that they fell in love so fast easier to relate to. It's hard to not cheer for this couple. They have many obstacles to overcome, but they have the love and support from family and friends to help them thru. A must read, as are the rest of the Love in Bloom series.
Audiobooks are awesome and BJ does an amazing job.

In Dreaming of Love, 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.

I've been waiting for Emily's book ever since we meet the Trusty Braden's. I was not disappointed. Dae was such a romantic. He was the dream guy every woman deserves. I guess the only thing I felt was lacking was there was no mention of the Bray/Braden/Remington connection.

BJ's narration is spot on. He's really got a great voice.

Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt's farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood - and falling for Trusty's hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

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.

What a good book. I loved the change of setting from Colorado to Reno. Just helped expand the series and the dynamics. I love Rebecca’s hard shell and fierce personality. And who wouldn’t fall for the handsome Knight in shining armor. I love the pace these two took and their love seems so genuine.
I loved listening to this on audiobook. It brings out flair that you don’t get by just reading. BJ does a great job.

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing - and maybe having a few too many drinks on her girls' weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is...until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden - the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Wes and Callie are an unlikely pair. Though their love story is so sweet. It’s hard to no swoon over Wes. He is a rugged outdoorsman and Callie is a quite librarian. Wes is so patient with Callie and her fears and lack of experience. He goes so over the top to prove his love, but we all could only wish a man would do that for us.

The audio of this book was flawless. B.J has done it again. Perfect inflection in his voice.
