World Literary Press 

Fall in love with Sam Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He’s fast, focused, and determined—and never at a loss for a willing woman to share his time with. The trouble is, the only woman he wants refuses him at every turn.

Physician assistant Faith Hayes escaped her painful past and built a safe, happy life in Peaceful Harbor. She’s also put what she’s learned to good use helping others by founding Women Against Cheaters, an online support group. When her boss’s sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn’t want, and she’s determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn’t have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it’s Faith who’s left with something to prove.

5 stars!

This is another great read by Melissa Foster. This is the story of Sam and Faith in The Braden Series. Even though this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. I immediately fall in love with all of Melissa Foster's characters because they are so true to life. They have the same problems and issues that we all go through from time to time and that to me makes them just that much more believable in these stories. 

Faith is a young lady that has recently been through a rough time in a relationship. Faith is working on moving on and has focused her attention on a website that she has set up to help other women that are going through the same thing with their past relationships. Faith meets Sam, a young guy who owns his own adventure company. Sam is a tour guide for those seeking adventure that they are scared to take on their own. When Sam tries to make a move on Faith, she is not ready just yet to let anyone into her life again so she refuses Sam. Sam has a reputation that follows him as a one night stand kind of guy. Sam is not known to commit to any of his dates and Faith is scared that she is going to get hurt again. 

Sam has a different feeling when it comes to Faith. He knows that there is something special about her that he does not want to let slip away. When Sam keeps on and is persistent that Faith go on a date with him, he is surprised at how stubborn she can be. At Sam's brother's wedding, he finally gets Faith to agree to go out with him though. Sam knows that he has to do something special to keep Faith. The best thing of all is that Sam has earned Faith's trust by his actions and that is a big plus in Faith's book. When Faith is doing a fundraiser for her website and the women that are a part of it, Sam shows up and begins to help Faith and the other women and that earns him some brownie points with Faith. 

As things progress for Sam and Faith, you can tell that there is something special between these two. As they communicate more and more, the sparks begin to fly. Will Sam be able to hold onto Faith, even though her friend is telling her to be careful because of Sam's reputation? You need to read this sweet story to find out how things end for Sam and Faith. When someone from Faith's past shows up and realizations are made about what others have said, will Sam and Faith be able to find their way back to each other and forgive and forget? This is a sweet love story that has plenty of spice to keep you turning the pages. Thanks once again to Melissa Foster for a great read!
