Crashing Into Love by Melissa Foster Review

Crashing Into Love
Love in Bloom #20: The Bradens # 12
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing March 17th, 2015

Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.

So we are back with the Braden’s and I for one I am very excited!
So this is Jake and Fiona’s story; and the adage that “True love never runs smoothly” is on the money in this story. Jake and Fiona were high school sweethearts, until Fiona’s mother; who was getting over a nasty divorce at the time, pressured Fiona into splitting with Jake; and breaking 2 hearts in the process.
Now Jake is one of the top stunt men in Hollywood. Fiona is a geologist at the Bureau of Mines and Geology…but temporally she is moonlighting at the PA to her BFF Trish, whom is starring in the same movie Jake is working on. Why after 16 years is Fiona back? Well that is simple, it’s because she loves Jake. But the million dollar question is….how does Jake feel about Fiona and can he ever get over her betrayal.
I really enjoyed this Braden book, the only drawback (for me), is that is wasn’t set in Trusty. Other than that, it is a fantastic story, that wasn’t predictable, that had substance and no plot holes, and gave me that little warm feeling in my tummy.
I give Crashing into Love 9 out of 10!
