Flirting With Love by Melissa Foster Review

 Flirting With Love
The Bradens # 10
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing December 15th, 2014

FLIRTING WITH LOVE is the newest addition to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.


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.


This book literally starts with a pig! no I am not joking! a pig! Well, what actually happens in Elisabeth busts in to Ross' veterinary office with a screaming pig in her arms and she doesn't know what to do. Ross comes to the rescue, not only for the pig, but for Elisabeth too.

Elisabeth finally comes "home", well back to the place that always felt like home. After her Aunt died, Elisabeth has come back to take over her farmette to start a fresh. She has given up her pet bakery in Los Angeles and wants to become ingrained in to Trusty small town life...but finds it harder than she thought.

Ross don't want to be caught up in Trusty's gossip circle. As a longtime resident, Ross protects his privacy as much as he can. But his attraction to Elisabeth thrusts him back into the bulls’ eye for the gossip.

So I was all very excited to start the next Braden Book, as I am a huge fan of this series. Ross Braden, I loved from the get go! He is perfect...well like all the Bradens. Elisabeth, I did not have those warm and fuzzy feeling straight away. She is a little abrasive to begin with; I have to say that if I heard her correct one more person on how to say her name, I was gonna scream. But eventually I got past that and really enjoyed what her character brought to the book.

As always, Melissa Foster writes a flawless book, with a smooth storyline that just leaves you wanting more. Not plot holes were found and I have to say, it is another Melissa Foster book that I have enjoyed. I will say that it’s not my favorite of the Braden series, but it was a great credit to the series. I give Flirting With Love 8 out of 10.
