Friendship on Fire - Review & Giveaway

Friendship on Fire
The Bradens Series Book Three
By: Melissa Foster

Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break—working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and—just maybe—explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.

Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.

Josh and Riley’s friendship heats up. Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley’s mentor accuses her of stealing the design.  

Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry—and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

Review by Marlene Engel

As Riley makes her way through the hustle and bustle of New York City, she realizes she’s a far cry from her hometown of Weston, Colorado.  Dressed in her discounted designer clothes, she heads to JBD for her first day as Josh Braden’s assistant.  It doesn’t take her long to see how cutthroat this industry is and that she’s going to have to develop thick skin if she hopes to become a designer one day.

As if working for sexy Josh Braden isn’t stressful enough, Riley finds herself under the watchful eye of Claudia who is dubbed, Cruella de Vil, by her co-workers.  Claudia doesn’t make Riley’s time at JBD easy.  She is determined to do everything in her power to drive Riley out of NYC and back to the small town she came from.  But as Riley and Josh start to become close, they know that they have to keep their relationship a secret from the rest of their co-workers.  Not wanting others to think that she slept her way to the top, Riley feels it’s best that they keep their personal life … well, personal. 
But when Riley gets accused of stealing Claudia’s designs and not only her job, but her relationship with Josh are on the line, will the pressure be too much for her to handle?  And will Josh believe her when she says that she’s being falsely accused?  Relationships will be at stake as integrity will be tested as Josh and Riley deal with their Friendship On Fire.
