Daring Her Love is a novella in author Melissa Foster’s Braden Series as well as story number 18 in the 2015 1,001 Dark Nights line-up. Here’s where I admit that this is the very first work by Melissa Foster that I’ve read and here’s where I also admit that I went and bought the entire back list after devouring this book. Ms. Foster knocked my socks off!

Kat is moving forward. She’s leave her old life behind and is on her way to a fresh start. A start without a new guy every few weeks. A new town, new state, new start, new Kat. She’s about to start with all of those new philosophies until she meets the sexy and smooth talking guy at the bar while waiting for her flight. The flight taking her to the fresh beginning. She knows she shouldn’t but she can’t help be tempted by this man and his sexy swagger. One more quick fling couldn’t hurt, right? Or could it…

Eric could use a distraction and the woman sitting at the bar giving him the sultry once-over seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Even better is that she doesn’t seem to be recognizing him from his fame in the racing circuit. It was refreshing to have someone being attracted to him for him, and not his fame and money. Just one taste is all he’d need….but he will soon realize he was dead wrong.

What happened when karma intervenes and takes what Kat and Eric thinks is a one night fling and turns it into more than they ever thought possible?

I have two words for you: Smoking. Hot. This story started out with one hell of a heated bang (heh, quite literally!) and just got better and better. The attraction between Kat and Eric was fast and hot and I loved it but what I loved even more was when a monkey wrench was thrown into their plan of making it a one night thing.

Melissa Foster – The Bradens – Daring Her Love (a novella book)

I am so happy that Kat Martin got her own story. We all met her in book 6: Hearts At Play. Kat was best friends with Brianna and godmother of her daughter Layla. Since book 6 with Brianna and Hugh Branden (approx. 4 years), Kat is moving forward with a new life for herself. With self examination and a lot of soul searching, she has left her job as bartender/waitress in Richmond, VA and with her new degree; she is reinventing herself as a PR consultant.

Kat was going to Colorado to meet with Brianna and have her take photos for her website and portfolio. While waiting for her flight in the airport bar, she is drawn to a man, Eric James and they have a little tryst. Kat heads for her plane and leaves Eric behind, so she thought. Eric is on the same flight to Colorado and he takes advantage to talk with her when can’t run away.

As the book unfolds, we find out that Kat has a lot baggage from her dad leaving her and her mom and then her husband left her and wanted nothing to do with their daughter, Layla. Kat has decided that she no longer wants a tryst with strangers, even Eric because she knows he has been a player for a long time. Kat wants what her best friend Brianna has with her husband Hugh Braden, her soul mate. As it turns out, Eric is best friends with Hugh Braden so they are spending the week-end together and under the same roof.

Even though this is a short story, the characters are well developed and the story line is really good. Don’t miss out on this book. You won’t regret it.

First I have to say, I loved the CRAP out of this book! How have I not had Melissa Foster’s books on my TBR before? I was 10% in to this novella, set my Kindle down and headed for my computer to see what other books I needed to download to get my Melissa Foster fix. I was happily surprised to find that I have her extensive back list to catch up on.

Even though Daring Her Love is smack dab in the middle of The Bradens series, I didn’t for one second feel like I was missing a part of the story or that I was lost being thrown into this rich and lush world. This series is a sweeping family saga full of people who love each other dearly. I really love her writing style.

Eric James is intense, sexy, cocky, smooth, confident, and self-assured. Kat knows what she wants and isn’t willing to compromise herself to get what she wants out of life and a relationship. She knows that she deserves more than a quick one night stand. The minute that their eyes meet across the room, sparks fly. And let me tell you, the chemistry was sizzling off the charts HOT! No insta-love anywhere to be found. It was a true and real attraction that you could tell was more than purely physical.

Even though this story was novella length, it was not a story that was rushed. The reader is able to see every single step of the way how how Eric and Kat fall for each other and why they have such a strong pull towards each other. Usually in novellas you feel like you don’t get enough of the couple’s story, but in this one I felt fully satisfied. The balance between the super steamy, yummy, dirty talking times and the sweet romantic times was pure perfection. I’m adding Melissa Foster to my auto buy list and starting at the beginning of her books as soon as I possibly can.
