In HEARTS AT PLAY...
Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best damn mother she can be.
The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn't expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off--and steals his every thought thereafter.
When Brianna's perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn't believe in fate and a woman who doesn't believe in true love find happiness in each other's arms forever?

One of my Favorites!!!!
This is one of my favorite books by Melissa Foster. I really liked this story getting to know more about Hugh Braden (Prince Hugh), Brianna Heart and of course, Layla Heart. It was nice to see Hugh outside of his family and see how his life is and how he handles his demanding yet sometimes dangerous career all the white finding himself thinking about the beautiful Brianna. I really liked how the story progressed and I also liked how they talked about Brianna’s concerns and how they ultimately decided to see where things would go. I also really enjoyed our secondary characters in this story as well and the ending was wonderful. I listened to this book as an audiobook narrated by B J Harrison. He did a great job from beginning to the end. I could hear a little bit of a drawl from Hugh (reminding me of Hal), and I thought he also did a good job with narration when Hugh, Brianna and Kat were chatting, and I liked his narration of Bill, and of course he gets me every time he comes on as Hal. Great story and narration.
Prince Hugh is all that and a bag of potato chips. Brianna doesn’t stand a chance against him.....but watching her try makes for a fun read.
The narrator does a great job in this story. I’m finally where I like his voice;)
