Book Review~ Flirting With Love

Book #10 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #20

Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy. For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.

Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.

THE BRADEN COUSINS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series, this is the third of six books.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

I'm going to start by saying that I went into this totally biased. I LOVE Melissa Foster, have for a long time. If you know me, you know I generally try to avoid steamy romance novels and stick to the sweet stuff, but for Melissa, I always make an exception, she's fantastic. Her books are fantastic, and Flirting With Love is no exception.

I'm sad to say that I've only read a few of the Braden Books, I do have a couple of the others purchased and waiting on my Kindle. You don't need to be at all familiar with the storyline to dive right in and fall in love with this couple. I felt that Melissa captured the small town gossip angle perfectly, as I've lived it my entire life, I'll count myself as an expert, and she did it perfectly. The quirkiness, the gossip, the care for others, and the skepticism for outsiders. I loved the simplicity of their relationship, it wasn't overly complicated or elaborate, it was just plain, simple falling in love.

There was very little conflict, which is refreshing. Sometimes when I want a love story, I just want a love story. I don't need kidnappings and car chases and crazy exes and big misunderstandings. Oh, don't get me wrong, it makes for great reading material too. But sometimes, simple love is just what I need.

The only thing I was slightly disappointed in is that when they were in their misunderstanding that Ross didn't fret about the closeness of Rossie to Robbie. I was waiting for him to go down that train of thought, and was a little disappointed that he didn't. It would've given something to laugh at once everything was settled.

That's really getting nit-picky though. Overall I loved the book and will give it 5/5 stars.
