Taken by Love by Melissa Foster Review and Giveaway


Book #7 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #15

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series.

My Review of Taken by Love by Melissa Foster

Yep. I’m just going to come out and say it…again. Melissa Foster creates some of my favorite fictional characters. They are full of life, love of family, and passion.

Luke Braden has all of those qualities. Of course he does, he’s a Braden. 😉 Luke and Daisy’s story is the first in the next chapter of the Love in Bloom Series and the first story of the Braden Cousins. Looking for a super-hot, sexy cowboy? Luke is your man. Daisy Honey returns to town to care for her father and still feels like she can’t live down the “reputation” she had when she left.

No worries though, Luke has it covered. In more ways than one. Oh, he’s absolutely drool worthy. I love that this story is set in a small Colorado town and we get to see some of the other Bradens (the originals and the cousins) in this one.

Melissa Foster creates these wonderful characters and stories that keep you spellbound from beginning to end. Another winner from Melissa. I just got my hands on the next book in the series. Review for that coming soon.
