Friendship on Fire is the sixth book in the Love in Bloom series. While Friendship on Fire can be experienced as a standalone novel, for even more listening enjoyment you may want to hear the Love in Bloom series in series order.
Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break - working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and - just maybe - explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.
Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.
Josh and Riley's friendship heats up. Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley's mentor accuses her of stealing the design.
Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry - and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

A Great Fashionable Romance with a twist
I received this audiobook free for an honest review. Love this Series. The author does an excellent job of telling a story that gets your blood running with the suspense and romance. Couldn't put this audiobook down. Just like all the others. The author is very talented at developing each of the characters with their individual personalities. Because of that, they are easy to remember throughout the series. Although I would prefer duet narration, the narrator does a good job with each of the characters and their personalities.

This is a story of trust, forgiveness and fighting for their happily ever after. Another good one from Melissa Foster.
Friendship on Fire (The Bradens at Wesont, CO #3) was another great read by Melissa Foster. I loved reading Josh and Riley’s story, we met them in Destined for Love. Riley has come from a small town and has finally gotten her big break as a fashion design assistant in Manhattan. She is working for her childhood crush, Josh. Their friendship heated up while she worked for him. I loved reading this book and I can’t wait to read more by Melissa Foster. B.J. Harrison did a great job of narrating the book and keeping you enthralled in what is happening to the characters.
