“How am I supposed to fit this in my mouth? It’s huge!” “That’s what you said last night, and you did just fine.”
This book is by far my MOST favorite Love in Bloom book! Melissa did an outstanding job pulling in past characters while making the story easy to follow. Catching up with the Trusty Bradens and the Peaceful Harbor Bradens just made this story even better and true to the "family is everything" values we've all come to know and love from the previous stories. Everyone needs Steve and Shannon!!
Steve is thrown for a loop when Shannon bursts into his quiet little world. She is spunky, sassy and, oh so sexy. His nickname for her is Butterfly as she flits from thing to thing and from place to place. Shannon is drawn to Steve’s burly mountain man exterior and also to his tender heart underneath it all. Can “Grizzly” and “Butterfly” find a way to compromise between their obvious opposite lifestyles? You will have to read the book to find out!
There is a great balance in this book between times of angst and times of sexy fun. The characters are well-developed and you will find yourself laughing at times (watch for Happy Packs and Shmores!) I enjoyed this book and maybe it is true that opposites attract?
I know this is going to sound cliche, but this is my favorite book that Melissa Foster has ever written. What I love most about it is the simplicity. It's simply the story of a free-spirited, outgoing girl from Maryland who falls in love with a somewhat reclusive mountain man from Colorado. Yes, there's a subplot about them trying to raise money for a ranch, but their romance revolves around the subplot, rather than the other way around. It's just a small part of the epic love story that is Steve and Shannon.
Like all Braden books, this can be read as a standalone. However, other Bradens from previous books make a few cameo appearances.
WHEN YOU THINK AN AUTHOR CAN'T GET ANY BETTER SHE GIVES YOU ANOTHER BOOK THAT IS BETTER THAN THE LAST.
Shannon Braden is very energetic and talkative. She loves life and she loved her time in Colorado when she was their gathering data for the company she is working for. When she went home for her brother's wedding she knew there was something happening between her and Steve. Her sister talked her into going back to see what was happening and she had a job that she could do while she was there.
Steve loves his solitude and his mountain. He does not believe in casual sex, so he has fought his desire for Shannon ever since his sister's wedding. He knew her life was in Peaceful Harbor and so he kept himself away from her. When she went home for her brother's wedding he missed her. His quiet mountain that he had always loved was to quite after she left. Now she was back and he knew he was going to have to have the control of a saint to keep himself away from her.
She was so beautiful and the spark that they make when they are together is hard to resist. But he fights it tooth and nail. She made a play for him wanting him to kiss him so bad but he doesn't fall for it, but he lets her know real quick what he really wants.
""You know I want to lay you down right here and memorize every sweet curve of your body. I want to taste your pleasures, waylay your fears, discover your vulnerabilities, your secret pleasure points." His lips brushed over hers again, along her cheek, to her other ear. "Even when we're not together, all I can think about is what it would be like to be inside you.""
Can we can panty melting. Squeeee. Steve is such a romantic and you will see how romantic he is when you read this book.
They continue to get closer and falling more and more in love with each other. When Shannon finally talks him into letting her help with the ranch that is going up for sale. He does and they start working hard to get the campaign off the ground. He keeps her on her toes and makes her do her research before doing the campaign work. He keeps falling and the time is nearing for her to head back home.
I don't want to give away all of the sweet and romantic details, but he learns to dance for her and that when you read will know how big that was.
Now it is time for you to keep these questions in your mind when you read this book because I will not be giving out the answers for you.
Does Shannon go back home?
How does Steve take her leaving?
Even though they said they would do long distance, can they make it work?
Those are questions you will find out. It is funny, sweet, and sad. You will awe, laugh and cry some while reading this book. I look forward to hearing comments on your thoughts of the book.
Thank you for reading today's blog.
Until Next Time: Happy Reading!!!!!!
