Publisher's Summary

*All BRADEN books can be enjoyed as stand-alone novels or as part of the series*

In CRASHING INTO LOVE...

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.

Wicked and Naughty

Melissa has written a wickedly hot, unique plot. B. J. Harrison is super great narrating this one.
Jake Braden is a LA stuntman and he is hired for all the best movies. He had his heart broken when the love of his life, Fiona Steele broke up with him when they got out of high school. Jake worked hard and played harder after his heartbreak and every woman was after him. Fiona has regretted it ever since. When her best friend Trish Ryder is hired to be the leading female in a movie that Jake would be in, she goes with her in the hope to win Jake's love back. Their passion had been deep and hot. Would some mistakes never get fixed? A must listen!

Love

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.

Young Love

I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook of Crashing into Love. B.J. Harrison was the narrator and he does an awesome job with the voices and really gets you into the story. This story is of Jake Braden and Fiona Steel. Jake is a stuntman and Fiona is a geologist. They used to date back in school for 2 years before Fiona broke Jake's heart. They both made plans to go away to college together and live happily ever after. Fiona mom convinced her ro go away to college single and experience college life. So Fiona ended the relationship 2 weeks before they were set to go. Jake was completely blindsided. Fiona took off and left Jake hurt and alome. Fiona has regretted that decision for a long time. Now they are both back in their hometown of Trusty and Fiona has made it her mission to get Jake back no matter what. Only problem is Jake is still really hurt and wants nothing to do with Fiona. He cant even look at her. Fiona will stop at nothing to get her man back no matter the cost. Can she do it. Read to find out. I loved it.

Second chance at love

Jake and Fiona have been given a second chance to face their feelings for one another after 16 years of being apart. But can they deal with their past and move on?

In those 16 years, each of them have grown up and chased their own dreams and now they have a chance to face them together. They have an obvious chemistry but need to let down their defenses to move on.

2nd chance romances can be dicey and hard to write but Melissa has done a good job with this one. I like the narrator that she has chosen to read this book.. B.J. Harrison does a great job and believe me, the choice of narrator can make or break an audio book. All in all an enjoyable book.

The Book and the Narration, Both Earn a 5+

I was so glad to finally get Jake's story, which is really Fiona's story also. I love second chance romances, and this one is a really good one. I love a woman that will go after what she wants, but can do it without being brazen. That is what Fiona, a scientist, does when she heads to Los Angeles to try to get back Jake, a very popular, sexy stuntman. This is two very different worlds colliding, but doing it beautifully. Melissa Foster has written one well written, beautiful, sweet, and steamy hot romance. I loved it. Then, since I listened to this book, instead of reading it, I would like to also sing my praises for B.J. Harrison, the narrator. He is one of the best. He does such a good job, and he does it by himself. Even though he is just one man, he can manipulate his voice so you can tell who is saying what. Also, I just love listening to his voice. With Crashing into Love, I give the book a 5+, and the narration a 5+.

Great read!

What can I say but Smashing!! You never forget your first love. Some are lucky enough to get a second chance with their first love.

Jake and Fiona get that chance after breaking down walls that Jake has built around his heart after Fiona broke it 16 years ago. Fiona has always been in love with Jake. Jake has always loved Fiona even tho after she broke his heart he has hated her. Fiona decides she needs to take a leap of faith and try to break down Jake's walls.

They come together and find out that they are still as good together as they ever were but Fiona has to decide if she can live in Jake's new life or should she go back to her's and try a long distance relationship with him. They both decide what is most important in their lives and make big changes to make each others happiness a reality.

I was so excited to start reading Jake and Fiona's story that I read it in one day. I love it when you get a second chance with your first love. Sometimes it takes work and compromise but in the end it is all worth it. Jake seemed so angry in his brothers stories that I was excited to see him get his shot a love again. To find his happily ever after. BJ Harrison is back as the narrator and he does a great job. His voice leaves you wanting the story to never end.
