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.

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.

One of my favorites of the Trusty Bradens

Would you listen to Fated for Love again? Why?

Yes absolutely because this is one of my favorites of the Trusty Bradens. I love Wes and Callie and think they are the perfect couple and they both compliment each other so well.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fated for Love?

When Callie faces her fear of height and scales a mountain side to save Wes' dog Sweets and does not think twice It wabout what she is doing. She puts her fears aside to save Sweets.

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

He does a perfect Colorado country accent. His voice is different for each of the characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh absolutely! It was hard to stop and get back to real life. I could not wait until I could continue listening again.

Any additional comments?

This is a great story and a must listen.

Opposites Attrack

What made the experience of listening to Fated for Love the most enjoyable?

Being able to listen to this book instead of just reading it, I was able to actually 'hear' the reactions of every character in their words. Reading is one thing, to actually hear some of the intended inflections of the statements and jokes of the characters allows for better understand in some conversations.

What did you like best about this story?

I LOVED the dynamics between Callie and her friends. Its friendship that you only pray that you are able to have.

What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?

He brought feeling to the words of the characters.

If you could rename Fated for Love, what would you call it?

Real Life Fairytale

Any additional comments?

I think I laughed more listening to this book than I did when I read it through the first time.

Another wonderful Braden book!

Any additional comments?

This is another great story by Melissa Foster. Wes and Callie's story was a fun one to follow and the narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I would listen to the book in the car and would find myself sitting in parking lots after arriving to finish a chapter. I would definitely recommend this book and narrator to others.

Wonderful Story, Author, and Narrator

First, I absolutely loved this story. It was wonderful seeing Callie overcome her fears. Also, seeing Wes breaking all of his rules when it came to Callie was heart warming. It is a wonderful story of love, that I would listen to on the way to work, and then would have a hard time clocking in on time, because I would continue to listen after arriving. I have listened to other books narrated by B. J. Harrison, and as always, he did a fantastic job. To me, he is one of the best narrators there is. Wonderful story, outstanding author, and fantastic narrator - This is a win-win-win.
