Books Read & Giveaway: Melissa Foster - Fated for Love

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing--and maybe having a few too many drinks--on her girls' weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is...until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden--the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he's the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.
Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he's there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie's influence, Wes might even discover that he's been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other's arms, and they're about to find out just how alike they really are.

We were first introduced to Wes Braden and Callie Barnes in the previous book in the series Taken by Love but now it's time for their love story.

On paper Wes and Callie have absolutely nothing in common so you wouldn't expect them to meet let alone fall in love but as the saying goes 'opposites attract' and that certain applies to these two, one is an outdoorsy type of guy and the other is a girl afraid of everything, heights, horses, deep water etc.  They already know each other from Wes' weekly visits to the library Callie works in but it's only when Callie's friends take her on a 'spa break' on Wes' dude ranch that the barriers come down and they get to know each other...

The concept of each novel in Melissa Foster's Love In Bloom series are pretty much the same formula, boy meets girl, sparks fly and after a few hiccups they end up together, and in Fated for Love that's exactly what you get between Wes and Callie with some sweet romantic moments thrown in for good measure.

Although Wes is my favourite Braden to date, and Callie was such a sweet girl, there is one other character that totally stole the show for me and she's not even human... Sweets, an abandoned bloodhound puppy that cannot smell who Wes rescued. Everyone that meets her can't help but fall in love with her and she certainly had her role to play in their romance as there is one heart stopping moment involving her and Callie that literally would melt the coldest of hearts...  

I'm already looking forward to getting to know the next Braden cousin, Pierce, who we meet briefly at the end of this book, in Romancing My Love which I will be reviewing next month.
