Book #12 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #20
Only one woman could hurt ultra-alpha bad boy Jake Braden.
Only one woman can heal him.
Fiona Steele has arrived…
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.
THE BRADEN COUSINS are one of the newest additions to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

If you are new to my reviews of anything Melissa Foster and romance related – let me just say – I love all of her romance stories (even her non-romance stories, but that’s for another time!)
The men… oh the men. And the Braden men. Oh… the Braden men.
Crashing Into Love gives us a better look into the life of Jake, the stunt man who had his heart broken by his first love – Fiona.
First love and first heart break suck. Horribly.
I didn’t really have a ‘side’ in this one. I thought Jake was kind of stuck up, really. I don’t really do the whole ‘man sleeps with tons of women’ because he can thing.
At the same time, I totally get that Fiona broke his heart, but that she wanted a second chance. She realized she messed up.
I wasn’t sure how easy it was going to be for her to get in there and frankly, there were times Jake really needed a good slap in the face.
I get it. He was hurt. His heart broken. But there is no way he didn’t still have emotions for her and there was no reason for him to be so nasty all the time.
Crashing Into Love was different than the other ones. I didn’t feel it was ‘dragged out’ (and I don’t mean the others are dragged out in a bad way), I just felt we got to the important stuff faster and got to live in that important stuff longer. (Yes, I’m vague blogging. I don’t want to spoil anything.)
If you are a Melissa fan; if you are a romance fan; if you like a good read that keeps you smiling like a fool – this one will do it!
