My kids' school had their fall book sale; Sophia got a My Little Pony Early Reader book, Joshua got a Beast Quest book and a box of rocks (comes with a booklet to explain the different rocks). Then I picked up for both of them Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World and Poppy Field.

 

This weekend we will be out adventuring around our town, taking in the different activities going on for Remembrance Weekend. On Monday I am taking a trip to London to see Chicago the Musical; since I am not driving, I hope to get some reading while traveling. Glad I got my flu shot this week. 

 

With the Festive Task game underway, I am trying to catch up so I can add up my points for the doors opened so far. I am halfway through Let the Circle Be Unbroken and Princess Elizabeth's Spy, so they are the priority right now. Then it is on to A Gentleman's Game and Love's Unfading Light.

 

Happy Veterans' Day to my brothers and sisters in arms. Happy reading to everyone! See you all on Tuesday.

Lovers at Heart, Reimagined by Melissa Foster (Love in Bloom: The Bradens)
Lovers at Heart, Reimagined - Melissa Foster

I have a confession to make, I have not read Treat and Max’s original story, so how this is re-imagined I am not sure, but one thing I am sure off is that this is a truly heartwarming story of second chances by the very talented Melissa Foster. 

Her Love in Bloom universe is immense and each book is different but all have characters that are real, relatable and easy to fall for.

 

Lovers at Heat is an emotional ride for Treat Braden and Max Armstrong. They shared a magical evening together and the day after based on a misunderstanding Max ran from Treat and he has been longing for her every since. Six months later Treat heads back home to his father ranch and family and a chance meeting sees him bump into Max! The desire he felt for all this time bubbles to the surface and he is determined not to let her run away again.

 

Max has been betrayed in the past and never in a million years did she expect to fall hard for Treat – a man who could have any woman on earth by the way, but he chose her. But her past insecurity and betrayal caused her to run, and Treat had no idea just what he had done. 

 

Once they finally get together again, and Max explains her past, Treat tells her about his own betrayal and proves that he is nothing like her ex.

 

This is one emotional story for Max, and I absolutely loved every moment of it from the first to last page, I loved how they were together and how above all love prevails no matter what happens.

Bayside Heat by Melissa Foster (Love in Bloom: Bayside Summers Book 3)
Bayside Heat - Melissa Foster

Things are really heating up in Bayside with this new instalment from Melissa! I love how her book titles perfectly reflect the story within the pages.

 

Serena Mallery and Drake Savage have been friends since childhood and for Serena she has crushed on him for a long long time, but thinking that he only saw her in a brother/sister type relationship and an almost kiss that he pulled away from when she was in high school. she has put him to the back of her mind and moved on – to her friends she has anyway but the heart knows what the heart wants and her heart wants him.

 

Faced with a wonderful job opportunity that will see her move to Boston and leave her friends and Drake behind, pushed her to tell him how she really feels but what she wasn’t expecting was the same feeling in return – sure she has dreamed of the scenario every night for years and years but now all the cards on the table what will become of their relationship?

 

You will have to read Bayside Heat to find just exactly how they overcome the obstacles they are facing, but one thing I can say is that this that you are in for one steamy ride as these two are meant to be together and one thing Melissa does well is write friends to lovers story lines that are not only passionate but with lovable realistic characters to boot.

Anything for Love (The Bradens & Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls) by Melissa Foster
Anything for Love – The Bradens & Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls) - Melissa Foster

Beau oh my god Beau, he has loved and lost and my heart just breaks for him, but Charlotte, oh my she is the best thing to ever happen to him.

 

The start of this book is hilarious! Beau has no idea what he has gotten himself into when he arrives at the Sterling Inn and finds moaning from behind closed doors and blow up dolls! Ok, so he discovers that it is actually Charlotte, enacting scenes for her writing – she is an erotic author and has to get her inspiration from somewhere to make her scenes realistic! From here we and Beau are privy to all of Charlotte’s quirks and for all I love all of Melissa’s book I don’t think any have make me smile and laugh so much than this one did.

 

Charlotte has lost all her family, and despite being alone she is the most loving, funny and carefree woman just waiting on her own fairy tale romance. Beau still hasn’t gotten over his first love who died in a tragic accident, and only agreed to come and help renovate the Inn to Hal as a favour but also as a means to escape his past and the anniversary of her death back home.

 

Knowing all that Charlotte has lost he thinks his loss is trivial in comparison but what Charlotte does is bring out the healing his heart needs to become whole again. They are just the best couple and go really well together, from the start the chemistry, laughter and romance is there and despite being opposites, together they can heal each others hurts away.

 

This is book 2 in The Bradens & Montgomerys series, part of the bigger Love in Bloom series by Melissa, and all her books are amazing as stand alone, but they are utterly wonderful if read as a series.

Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys: Grace) by Melissa Foster
Embracing Her Heart - Melissa Foster

From beginning to end I was in love with this story, Grace & Reed deserve this second chance and after 10 years apart it is clear the passion and attraction of the first love is just as ever present as it was when they were teenagers.

 

Grace and Reed dated in secret when in high school they were each others firsts – love and everything in between. TheY broke off when Grace left for New York after high-school and when she learned that Reed left also it left her with a bad feeling about him as he vowed never to leave home. Grace is back in her hometown of Oak Falls for a three week vacation and to help do a screen writing class for her sister, little did she know that Reed is back and living in Oak Falls, until she discovers him on her mothers porch one morning,

The past feelings came flooding back for both of them, and they finally learn just how heartbroken each were all those years ago when they parted ways and just how much they have pined after each for the last 10 years.

 

Their second chance story is just amazing and so perfect for them, the passion and chemistry is off the charts and in true Melissa fashion you cant help but fall in love with the characters she creates.
