How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

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.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he's the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he's there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie's influence, Wes might even discover that he's been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other's arms, and they're about to find out just how alike they really are.

Sweet & Sexy Romance!

I read this book a few years ago and just recently listened to it on Audiobook. I loved it when I read it but BJ Harrison brings all the characters to life in wonderful and wickedly sexy ways. He's an awesome narrator!
I love this story line and how everything happens and even the pace it happens. It was just right for Wes & Callie!!!
Wes Braden is the hero of this story or maybe I should say the prince (you'll see why). He is tall, dark and handsome and sexy as the day is long. He just oozes genuine charm and is a really nice guy. I personally adore him!! And Callie, well I just love her too! She is just the sweetest until she is alone with Wes and then she becomes a little sex kitten. I love that contrast about her . She has an amazing group of friends who constantly had me laughing out loud. But let's not forget about Sweets! Love that puppy!! And of course, Wes's family is the best! Which if you've read MF's books about the Bradens, you already know!

Meet Wes Braden--hunky swoon-worthy cowboy!

Oh my! If you aren't already a fan of Melissa Foster--you will be after this book. Whether you have read other stand-alone romances from Melissa and had a brief introduction to Wes, or are just "meeting" him for the first time, his genuine nature and big heart will reel you right in. The reader learns right away that a new librarian has moved to the small town of Trusty, and Wes is suddenly visiting the library more! I loved the narration on the audiobook--the personality of the characters really came through as he described their thoughts and actions.This was a beautiful love story to read, and I loved that the reader is clued in to a few things before the characters figure it out.

Great Book

Fated for Love (The Bradens at Trusty #2) by Melissa Foster was a great read. Callie is a librarian who goes on a girls weekend with her girlfriends. Little did she know she wasn't going where she thought she was. She didn't expect to see Wes Braden there and fall for him. I listened to an audiobook of this and loved listening to Callie and Wes' story. I can't wait to read more by Melissa Foster.

Warm and Wonderful!

Melissa Foster has given us another winner in the story of Callie Barnes and Wes Braden. B. J Harrison has narrated this winner with a blue ribbon and gold medal earned with passion.
Callie was an assistant librarian and she loved fairy tales. Wes came in the library and he made her legs turn into wet noodles. She thought she was spending the weekend at a spa with her girlfriends. Instead of the spa, the girls take her to a dude ranch. The ranch is owned by Wes and she has fantasied about him for ages. Wes is not into commitment and Callie is faced with her fears at the ranch. She found out Wes was not only sexy and badass, but sweet and caring. Will they find a way? You must find out!

Hot cowboy and beautiful librarian! Must read

The sound of BJ Harrison narrating a Melissa Foster novel is mesmerizing. You just want it to go on and on. This is the story of Wes Braden who owns a dude ranch in the mountains of Colorado. Callie thinks she is meeting friends for a spa weekend but they have really booked the ranch with various outdoor activities that Callie is totally unprepared for. As the new librarian Callie sees Wes each week as she selects books for him. But now she is face to face with him for a whole weekend and he will see that she is afraid of everything he loves. I loved this story as you see Wes and Callie fall for each other but also the give and take of their relationship. This is a 5star story that made me laugh out loud in some places. Kudos to both the author and narrator.

Bradens...swoon!

Words cannot express how much I love the Bradens! MF’s Love in Bloom series is one of my favs, I could read (and listen) to them over and over. Wes and Callie are amazing together! Glad they finally got together and that Callie overcame some of her fears! Narrator did a great job as well.

Sweet Story

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.

Fairy Tale

I had the great pleasure of listening to the audiobook for Fated for Love. This is the story of Wes Braden and Callie Barnes. Callie is a librarian and Wes owns a dude ranch with his best friend. Wes shows up every Thursday to the library for the latest thrillers to read and Callie has the books ready for him. Callie has a secret yearning for Wes. Wes has an attraction as well. When Wes asks her if she has any plans for the weekend she says her best friends are taking her to a Spa. Little does she know that the "spa" is actually thr same dude ranch that Wes owns. Her 3 friends think she needs to toughen up a little. Callie loves fairy tales books and at the ranch when they are about to ride horses, Callie's horse takes off and Wes saves her like the fairy tales. Their attraction is intense and when they finally share their first kiss....it is amazing. And when they finally give in to their desires..it is like nothing they have ever shared. Such a great story.

A case of opposites attract

If you could sum up Fated for Love in three words, what would they be?

Lust, Fear, Attraction

What other book might you compare Fated for Love to and why?

I would compare this to Jack and Savannah's book. In both instances, the personalities were a case of opposites attract.

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think that B.J.'s voice helps convey the emotion in the stories in a way beyond what I see when I read them (without audio).

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Attraction meets fear - overcoming and coming together

Any additional comments?

I've said it before but I love the opportunity to listen to books that I have read in print previously. It give me an opportunity to remember and gather new perspective.

I'm a sucker for an emotional, sexy read.

This was a lively, sexy, sweet novel that'll leave you craving more. Especially of Wes. He's sexy, swoon-worthy, loving hero who's rugged and sweet. He's charming and sweeps Callie the introvert librarian off her feet. The adventures as well as the misadventure Callie went on were heart felt and fun to read. I absolutely adored this new addition of the LIB series.

The audio book was pleasant to listen to. B.J Harrison did such a good job telling the story. The nuisances of the characters was spot on and I couldn't help but smiling and laughing throughout the book.
