Flirting With Love - Review & Giveaway

Flirting With Love
The Bradens # 10
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing December 15th, 2014

FLIRTING WITH LOVE is the newest addition to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.


Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy.  For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.

Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.

Review by Marlene Engel

As a child, some of Elisabeth’s best memories were spent on her aunt’s farm in Trusty.  Although she grew up in the fast paced, hustle and bustle life of LA, she knew that her heart was never far from Trusty. 

When Elisabeth’s aunt passes and leaves the farm to her, she doesn’t hesitate to close up her pet pampering business in California and move.  What she didn’t expect was the cold welcome she received from just about everyone in Trusty.  What happened to the small town closeness that she remembered as a child?  But the locals feared that she was just there to sell her aunt’s farm and move back to LA.

It soon becomes apparent to Elisabeth that life on a farm was more work that she realized.  When one of her piglets acts up, she rushes to the local veterinarian’s office for assistance.  She was greeted by tall, handsome and irresistibly sexy, resident doctor Ross Braden.  He not only took care of the problem at hand, he also warmed Elisabeth’s heart and reaffirmed all of the reasons why she loved Trusty. 

Ross and Elisabeth soon become inseparable, which only sparked the Trusty rumor mill.  But Ross knew that there was something special about her.  Special enough that he broke his own rule of not dating women from his town.  But when someone from Elisabeth’s past shows up in Trusty, it threatens to break apart the bond that Ross and Elisabeth have formed, and it doesn’t take long before rumors of Elisabeth’s intentions with the farm resurface. 

There’s just something about small towns that draw you in.  From the close-knit bonds to the local businesses, you just can’t go wrong!  That is, as long as you’re not an “outsider” trying to fit in.  I felt for Elisabeth who, although she had good intentions, had a hard time getting the locals to warm up to her.  If you like small town charm and tall, dark and dreamy men then this is the book for you!
