From the Author
Ty and Aiyla's journey to their happily ever after is a much bigger story than you might be used to. Throughout the series, Ty has been a bit mysterious, but I've known he was extremesince the first time I met--and fell in love with--him. I knew he needed a forever love who could handle his past, and who was just as fierce as he was. Aiyla is most definitely his perfectmate. Their story was not an easy one to write, but every romance is not roses and wine, and theirs is an epic love story that I am proud to have written. I hope you enjoy Ty and Aiyla's story and are looking forward to reading about Beau Braden and Charlotte Sterling in Anything for Love, the next Braden novel, and the first of the Bradens at Pleasant Hill.

"Do you believe in fate?"
These words are among the last that Aiyla said to Ty before they went their separate ways after spending 5 days talking & experiencing life together. They are also the first words Ty said to Aiyla after they were finally reunited at an outdoor charity event. The wandering playboy had met his match.
"If this is meant to be, we'll meet up again. "
Aiyla was afraid of the strong chemistry between them & unsure whether she could trust him with her heart. The time apart forced them both to evaluate their lives & determine if what they would do if they met up again. As they travel this journey & make peace with it, fate has another surprise for them. Can their love survive?
Aiyla & Ty are one of the most realistic Braden couples Ms. Foster has written. I fell in love with both of them. The characters are well developed with a strength & resolve that is fiercely tested. The Braden family members make their appearances &, while updating the readers on their lives, weave a web of love & acceptance around the couple. As you are reading, there is a sense of the plot gaining in intensity. While this sense is growing, Ms. Foster hits all of the readers emotions - humor, wit, love, jealousy, pain, fear, grief & acceptance. This was one of the best books that I have read in a long time!
Ty Braden was a world-renowned mountain climber, photographer and gorgeous, sexy, play boy. But as with all the Bradens, when he fell, he fell only once and he fell hard. Aiyla Bell was Ty’s perfect match. She was beautiful but more than that, she was smart, adventurous, strong, stubborn and independent.
The first half of the book focused on their relationship and commitment. They embraced their feelings and it was a pretty fast whirlwind. The last half focused on the unexpected challenges and their reactions to it. It was emotional and intense but also sweet. My favorite line in the book was “Because we belong together. When the powers at be were doling out answers, I stood in the Aiyla-only line.” Incredibly sweet.
I loved all of the Bradens interactions and the bonding they shared. It was humorous and fun at times but also serious and supportive, providing stability and a grounding when needed.
True to Foster, Thrill of Love was well written and well developed with depth and dimension. Foster also provided teasers for the new Braden at Pleasant Hill series. The first book will feature Ty’s cousin, Beau, in Anything for Love.
I must admit up front that I have become a completely fan-girl, swoon, swoon type of fan of Melissa Foster of late! I’ve been binge reading her books, starting with the first of the LOVE IN BLOOM big family series that ultimately leads to THRILL OF LOVE! I’m currently falling in love with falling in love again!
Melissa Foster is a master wordsmith with an incredible imagination, and she brings it all to her latest offering, THRILL OF LOVE: Ty Braden (Love in Bloom: The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor)!
Melissa’s storyline is not the typical love story remake! She has taken the boy meets girl to a whole new level and asks us all the question, “Do you believe in fate?” Fate plays heavy in the kindling of love, and life lessons do everything they can to see that this love won’t survive!
The characters have strong stories of their own, but the blending of characters from her earlier books into THRILL OF LOVE is utterly brilliant! The Braden family has branches that reach every which direction and watching them in action makes me envious of the large, close-knit clan! They know when to play and when it’s time to knuckle down and get serious. More importantly, they know when to love, and when never to let go!
THRILL OF LOVE by Melissa Foster is absolutely a book I didn’t want to put down! Nor will it be the last book I read by Melissa Foster!
I very highly recommend you get THRILL OF LOVE by Melissa Foster. Don’t forget the tissues when you read it!
I give THRILL OF LOVE five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee!
