Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

My Review:

Intro: The Bradens...oh how I love this series. It's quickly equaling most of the contemporary romance series I had ever read. It's that good.


Heroine: Callie-She is one of my people...a librarian. And I just loved her because I identified so much with her. She was quiet, shy and sort of standoffish. I love her reserve and some people may find it hard to get to know a character like that but I really identified with her.

Hero: Wes-He went to the library every week to see her. That is just the sweetest thing ever. He's sort of the outdoorsy type dude. Generally not my favorite but I liked it in Wes.

Chemistry-Wes had such a stronger personality than Callie but I was surprised at how well Callie held her own with him. I always find it interesting when a quieter character is paired with a more outgoing one. I guess opposites attract.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: Melissa Foster is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Fated For Love was amazing. It kind of reminds me of Jill Shalvis' books and they are my benchmark for contemporary romance awesomeness.
