You met Josh and Riley in Destined for Love (The Bradens, Book Two). Follow these two young lovers to New York and see what fate has in store for them.
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.
FRIENDSHIP ON FIRE is part of the 9 book Love in Bloom series.

Once again, Melissa Foster hits it out of the park. I’m not really sure where all the Braden men are actually hiding, but I sure do want one. Just don’t tell my hubby. 😉
I adored Rex in the last book, and Josh is so different. He’s not as totally alpha as Rex, but can be quite possessive (in a good way). I enjoy the fact that each of the Braden brothers have their own individual personality and I am able to easily distinguish one from another. While one may be alpha, another is sweet, and yet another is romantic. Can’t wait to read about the rest of the family.
The way Melissa Foster writes the characters, I feel like I’m right there in the story. We met Josh and Riley in Destined for Love, while everyone was at the farm, but it doesn’t end there. Josh and Riley’s story doesn’t take place on the farm, it takes place in Manhattan, in the fashion world and with cut-throat colleagues. Josh gives Riley a position in his fashion company, and Josh tries his best to stay away from her (really). I love the interaction between Josh and Riley and the fact that they were trying to keep their relationship hidden, even though we all know that wasn’t going to happen.
Josh has to figure out if he can trust Riley and Riley has to trust she’s enough for Josh. As with all the books in this series, it is a sweet story with some sexy scenes, a lot of family influence and a happily ever after.
Love, romance, humor, and some really steamy love scenes add up to a sure hit with Friendship on Fire.
