Publisher Description

Blazing heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and an abundance of swoon-worthy moments make this sexy standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster unpausable. 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.

Love in Bloom novels feature alpha male heroes and smart, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy sexy contemporary romance and women's fiction.

Finding Love

Jax and Jordan's story has so much in it and I won't give away the details but just know this is a great story that has depth and lots of emotions. Jordan has suffered from her childhood and Jax will help her not only heal but to find herself and go for what she wants in life.

The characters are wonderful and I really loved listening to Meg Sylvan and Aiden Snow bring them to life. All the supporting characters are an added bonus to pull us into their lives and their story. I loved this book and highly recommend it.

Good addition to this series

In typical Melissa Foster fashion, she has created another good slow burn romance story that made for another good addition to the Oak Falls series. In this addition to this series we get Jax and Jordan's story.

Jordan, a bride to be has commissioned Jax to design her wedding dress. Over time and postponements, the pair get to know each other to later meet again at Trixie's wedding. After a few postponements, Jordan shares her heartbreaking past with Jax while engaged to the wrong man.

Jax, a wedding dress designer and swoon worthy man has an instant attraction to Jordan from his first meeting with her. The more time that he spends with her the more he fights his attraction while sharing confessions, banter and insight.

This story is what this genre was made for. The chemistry between the pair was palpable with their slow burn story. I loved the return of the characters from previous books and series as well as Jax's huge family that plays a role in this story.

The narration performed by Meg Sylvan and Aiden Snow was performed well. This pair did a great job bringing this story to life and making it an enjoyable listening experience.

Overall, this was a good read that I enjoyed from start to finish and in the end would recommend to others.
