Review and Giveaway: Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster

Romancing My Love (Love in Bloom, #17; The Bradens, #9)Publisher: World Literary Press
Pages: 300 pages
Genre: Romance/Contemporary
Buy this Book: AmazonNookiBooks,


After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

My Review:

Intro: I am a big fan of the Braden series of books. I have intentions of reviewing all of them…after reading them again, of course, because who can resist. I was really looking forward to this one.


Heroine: Rebecca-I loved Rebecca so much. She was just so strong and independent. She never let anything get her down. I so admired that in her. And she may have broken me out of my heroine slump.

Hero: Pierce-I loved him too. He’s the oldest Braden and a bit of a womanizer. But he is generally a really great guy with a very sweet side. He may be my favorite of the Bradens but that is a very difficult choice to make.

Chemistry: Pierce and Rebecca had amazing chemistry. They had their issues to work out with Rebecca’s stubborn independence and Pierce’s womanizing tendencies. It was quite the interesting dynamic.

Chemistry Rating:

Conclusion: I love this series so much and I will continue to fangirl until the sad day when the series ends. Romancing My Love just may be my favorite book in the series. I’m holding off an official declaration until I reread the series.
