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.

Country cowboy Ross Braden meets his match!
I love these romance stories by Melissa Foster. I had originally downloaded this one a couple years ago and recently rediscovered it when I had a chance to listen to the audiobook. All of Melissa's stories are stand alone, so reading them out of order (like I did!) doesn't matter. The reader does get to know different friends and family members and how they are interconnected if you choose to read the series though. This story of Ross and Elisabeth was just perfect. A spunky, headstrong heroine, and a thoughtful, caring, educated (and HOT!) cowboy hero. From the beginning when they are introduced by her little piglet to following their new love as it develops and the passion they have for each other, I just loved this story and the characters. The audiobook did a good job of conveying the emotion and the pace of the book too. Elisabeth has a heart of gold and won't give up, and Ross loves her for it.
Loved this audiobook!
I love Ross and Elisabeth. Once again Melissa Foster has provided us her unique brand of writing brought to life by the voice of BJ Harrison. Each of the Braden romances are emotion filled tender stories and Flirting with Love is no different. Elisabeth returns to Trusty, CO as an adult after inheriting her Aunt Cora’s farm and pie baking business. She meets Ross when she shows up at his vet office with the runt piglet of a new litter. And the fun begins. This delightful story will make you laugh and give you “feel good” goose bumps as the other Braden fiancee’s befriend Elisabeth. You might even shed a tear or two as a result of the compassion for other animals. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Oh, Melissa Foster, you just keep writing more and more stories about my book crushes.
I love Ross Braden. He is a dream come true. The Braden men all have amazing manners and a romantic heart. If only there were more real men like them (SIGH).
Elisabeth knows what her dreams are and know that she has to follow them. I cannot imagine moving to a small town where the only person that you really knew has passed away. That is exactly what Elisabeth does. She also knows she wants a real relationship, not the fluffy mean nothing relationships that her mother thinks she has had in the past. Her character was so relatable and lovable that I could not hope that she would get accepted into the town of Trusty and fall in love, like her dreams.
With each story the reader gets to visit her favorite characters and see how their lives are shaping up, while being introduced to new and fun characters. I love seeing where my last book crush has ended up and meeting my new book crush in each book. Of course, I recommend this entire series to any romance reader looking for a fun new series to read.
