Love in Bloom: The Bradens #14
Melissa Foster
Releasing on January 13, 2016
World Literary Press 

Annalise “Leesa” Avalon never realized that one sentence could change her life until one of her students revealed his crush—and within twenty-four hours she finds herself under fire. After a grueling investigation that turns her life upside down, she steals away to Peaceful Harbor, Maryland, with a new identity to try to pull herself back together and figure out her next step.

From the outside, Cole Braden lives a charmed life. He’s a top orthopedic surgeon with a thriving practice, strong family ties, and friends he adores. But there’s a lonely spot inside Cole that no one can see. He has an enormous heart—and a painful past—but the desire to love and be loved is too strong to ignore.

A chance encounter brings Leesa and Cole together, and the attraction is immediate and intense. But a relationship is the last thing Leesa needs—and the only thing Cole wants. Long talks, heated moments, and deep connections are hard to resist, but the harder Cole tries, the more Leesa pulls away. Cole might truly be the right man for Leesa, but is Leesa the right woman for him?


5 Stars
Melissa Foster has done it once again!! Cole Braden is a hot doctor that is also an Alpha male. I fell in love with the Braden's from the first time we meet them. Melissa has a way to draw you in with her characters making you feel like they are a part of your own family!! You lovethe characters and can relate to them like your own brothers and sisters.

Annalise, Lessa, is a young lady that is visiting her best friend while trying to let a situation calm down in her hometown with her job. Lessa is not running from her problems, but more or less just trying to space her own image. When her boyfriend ended up breaking up with her because if the situation, her whole world seems like it is crumbling in on her. That is why Leesa decides to visit her friend.

When Leesa decides to do a favor for her friend one day and stop to get her a coffee and muffin, she never dreamed that she would meet a man that would be willing to give up anything and everything for a woman he doesn't even know. Cole Braden ends up giving Leesa the last muffin of his favorite type and his coffee for her friend. He also ends up paying for it because Leesa forgot her money. Cole has a hard time believing Leesa that the muffin and coffee are for her friend, but he uses it as a joke with Leesa.

When Leesa goes to a doctor’s appointment with her friend, she did not expect the man that was occupying her mind to be her friends doctor. Leesa saw Cole and was lost for words. She knew that there was something there between them when she was speechless. Leesa has no idea when she will see Cole again but there would never be a too soon for her.

When Leesa ends up working a bachelor’s auction, she had no clue that Cole and all his single brothers were going to be on the auction block. When Cole begs Leesa to buy him so that he will not have to go with his ex that has shown up, Leesa thought he was crazy. Leesa had already turned Cole down for a date so how was she going to buy him for a date in front of the whole town?? Leesa was trying to stay out of the spotlight and now Cole was putting her in it!!

I love how Cole and Leesa fell into an easy relationship and felt so comfortable with each other from the very beginning. Cole treated Leesa with such care and concern that he makes you melt. Will these two find a way to be with each other and find their HEA?? You need to read this one so that Cole Braden can make you swoon and fall for him!! Such a great read!! I can't wait to s
ee what the other Braden brothers have in store for us!!
