Book Review

Dreaming of Love by Melissa Foster Ends 3/1


Book #11 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #19

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. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

Here are my thoughts;

Emily & Dae – Oh my goodness I loved the chemistry between them RIGHT away! As with the rest of her books that I have read, they are perfectly fine to read as a stand alone but they ARE part of a series! This book is set in Tuscany and oh my! The way the places are described makes me want to go there even more than I did before! I love that there was no dramatic scenes in this book, no jealousy going on, no fighting over another man or woman! It was more Dae and Emily having to work through their feelings for the other ones work. I hoped all through out the book that Emily would become okay with what Dae did for a living, considering it is the exact opposite of Emily’s job! Dae never one time thought anything about what Emily did for a living, and I find that showed his true feelings for her!

I think out of all of the Heroes that Melissa Foster has written about, Dae would have to be my favorite! I never had a doubt in my mind that him and Emily would end up together! I was pleasantly surprised towards the end of the book, when he told Emily what was going to happen to The House of Wishes! (BIG THUMBS UP!)
