Book #9 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #18
After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.
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.
Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?
THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, this is the third of six books.

My thoughts are below;
Melissa Foster is an amazing author! I have read so many of her books and she never fails to amazing me!! I am super glad that I was introduced into the Beck Valley Book Tours because this is how I was introduced to her books!
I have my own Knight in Shining Armor, but I think if I didn’t, I would definitely want a Braden to be mine! Rebecca Rivera didn’t want or need that! She is super independent and has been through a lot of ups and downs. Mr. Pierce Braden has quickly become very taken with her, despite the fact that she isn’t the type of relationship material that he normally has! I like that he doesn’t try to swoop in and save Rebecca.
There haven’t been many books of Melissa’s that I’ve read where I haven’t either teared up from sadness or laughter, and this book was absolutely no exception! Rebecca’s story is super sad, I think. She has recently lost her mom, the place where she lived and her job. Like me, she is too stubborn to ask for help! Pierce Braden, with out a doubt, sees past the walls that Rebecca has put up around herself and tries to break through. He does and it is awesome!
There are more books coming from Melissa Foster and I absolutely can not wait!
