Crushing on Love: Shannon Braden (Book 4: Bradens at Peaceful Harbor) (Love in Bloom: The Bradens) - Melissa Foster

Crushing on Love is an adorable addition to the Bradens series. I love how the setting in the mountains and town is described. It made me miss how peaceful nature can be away from cities and bigger towns.

I enjoyed the characters in this book.

Steve Johnson amazes me with how much restraint and caution he has. When most people would act on their desires, he thinks it through and thinks about the long-term consequences. He thinks it through when it comes to his actions with nature and in his relationships. I like that about him. His passion for nature and wanting to protect it is a huge part of this story.

Shannon Braden makes me smile. Her bubbly and sociable personality makes her very likable. Like most of the Bradens, when she wants something, she goes for it. If it isn't for her wanting to pursue something with Steve, I'm not sure Steve would ever take the risk. They are an adorable couple.

There are times that Shannon did frustrate me though. Steve look into ways to keep their relationship together and make things work. To me, it seems like Shannon doesn't make the same efforts as Steve. Shannon focuses so much on her life in Peaceful Harbor that she doesn't take much time to think of a life with Steve in Colorado.

Life decisions can be difficult to make, but they are often necessary to make for one's own happiness and growth.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Crushing on Love
Crushing on Love - Melissa Foster To date Ms. Foster has tackled heavy issues within her Bradens series. Whether trust issues have arisen, guilt and grief associated with loss, escaping a painful past or trying to outrun hurtful accusations, these Bradens prove they are made of strong stock. Naturally, I had to read Crushing on Love. Steve and Shannon's was not as dramatic and angst ridden as some of the other romances. All in all, there were obstacles but the journey to love was sedate for this author. Wherever there's history, complication is not far behind, but the appeal of Shannon and Steve is that the subtlety added to, not detracted from. A sweetly tuned second chance story.
