In USA Today Bestseller DREAMING OF LOVE...
Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does--with the exception of finding true love. She's watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn't have.
Dae Bray doesn't do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work--until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule--and just about everything else he's ever believed about himself.
Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

Customer ReviewsSee All
BJ Harrison knocks it out of the park again with his mad narrating skills as Melissa Foster does the same with her writing on this wonderful tale about falling in love in Italy. I love all things Braden, so of course I think Emily is awesome. But Dae, wow, I can't think of a better word for him than DREAMY. Loved the story line, the ease at which these two connected and just knew but how they still faced some dilemmas. I also loved the look into Tuscany, it's culture and the people they get close to while there. And of course I adore Emily and Dae, and the Braden clan.
Romantic and Swoony
Dreaming of Love is the fifth book in the Braden’s at Trusty series but can definitely be read as a standalone. The story mainly takes place in Tuscany where Emily Braden is vacationing thanks to a gift from her brother.
Emily has loved seeing her brothers find their true loves and soulmates but despairs ever finding that for herself.
The story (and setting) is romantic, swoony and hot, hot, Hot! It also deep and touching as Emily and Dae Bray have to find a middle ground to land on when they are on complete opposite sides of an ideal.
“You’re no longer possibly mine. You’re not even my sure thing,” she whispered. “You’re my everything.”
I love listening to these stories on audiobook and really enjoy this narrator.
Dreaming of Love was a great read by Melissa Foster. This is book five in The Bradens at Trust, CO series. Emily is a character that I have absolutely fell in love with in the previous Braden books. Emily's in Tuscany trying to forget about how badly she wants to find a love of her own. Dae isn't looking for a relationship but doesn't expect the feelings when he meets Emily. Unfortunately the differences in their jobs may get in the way. I loved this book and can't wait to read more by Melissa Foster.
