Publisher Description

Blazing heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and an abundance of swoon-worthy moments make this sexy new standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster unputdownable. No cheating, no cliffhangers, and guaranteed to leave you breathlessly in love with the fiercely loyal and wickedly naughty Bradens.

What happens when you find your soul mate but she belongs to someone else?

Months ago, famed wedding-gown designer Jax Braden met the woman of his dreams when a bride-to-be came in for a consultation. He’s tried to move on, but there is no forgetting beautiful, smart, and refreshingly real Jordan Lawler, or the loneliness she cleverly tries to hide. When Jordan hires him to design her wedding gown, Jax knows he’s in trouble, but he cannot walk away. As business meetings turn to late-night confessions, their connection deepens, igniting passion too strong to deny. They’re drawn into an inescapable and forbidden love. Loyalties are tested and hearts are frayed, but neither will cross that invisible line in the sand. Come along for the sexy, emotional ride as Jax and Jordan face their toughest competitors yet—their hearts.

Simply the best

Jax Braden and Jordan Lawler’s story was very different to what I was expecting but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a fantastic read because this book may have taken me by surprise but it was still a beautifully written journey that I will certainly read again and again. Wedding designer Jax is designing Jordan’s dress and from the moment they meet sparks fly but she has a wedding to plan and that means lines are drawn and those lines shouldn’t be be crossed. The more time this couple spend time together and as Jordan’s fiancé decides he has no interest in the wedding plans and his work is more important, it soon becomes obvious this couple should be more than just friends but will Jordan walk away from her fiancé and her wedding even when she knows she deserves better than he is offering and more importantly will she find true happiness with Jax. I loved this book, I was captivated from the first few pages and there was no putting down until the final word had been read, I fell hard and fast for the swoon worthy Jax and I really felt for Jordan as she tried to sort her life out but it was the integrity and love that Jax showed throughout this gem that took this story to another level.

Loved it

This book appeared to be a bit of a departure form what I come to expect from Melissa Foster. Jax Braden is designing a wedding dress for Jordan Lawler and although their is chemistry between them neither of them cross the line.

As I have come to expect from Melissa Foster the story was well written with characters whose story you cannot help but be drawn to. However Jordan’s relationship is not as strong as she would like and she realizes that things need to change.

I loved how supportive Jax was, always willing to listen and be there to support Jordan no matter what. A man with integrity who I fell for hard and fast.

I love stories set in small towns and for me Oak Falls, Virginia sounds like a wonderful town to escape too. I loved the push and pull dynamic of their relationship and it was entertaining to watch it play out.
