*Book Review and Giveaway* Dreaming of Love by Melissa Foster


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?

I'm sure at this stage in the game I sound like a broken record! I LOVE MELISSA FOSTER BOOKS!!! I've been crazily reading these books out of order but I fully intend to someday  go back and read them in order. You can read this book as a stand alone but if you love it I suggest going back and reading the others as well. Ok, on to this story. Oh, Emily! Emily is a fantastic character with a passionate soul. Her love of preserving properties and finding the beauty in some old, virtually rundown building is part of what makes her so real and loveable. When she goes to Tuscany and meets smokin' hot Dae sparks fly. Their relationship becomes more than either was expecting (or looking for) but when they find out that they happen to be in Tuscany for COMPLETELY different reasons they find they have a lot to overcome. Go get this book NOW to find out if these two passionate souls can make their relationship work...

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