Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Destined For Love blog tour. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.
Destined for Love
The Bradens Series Book Two
By: Melissa Foster
Rex Braden is wealthy, hard working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over forty years, moves back into town.
After ditching a horrific relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.
Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny—and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.
Rex lives and breathes the family ranch. Other than his family it is all he cares about. He has always been the one to hold everything in. That all changes when Jade moves back to town. He has always liked her but with their families feuding for years he knows it will never work. Jade has moved back home after a bad breakup. She and Rex butt heads on more than one occasion. They both can't fight what is between them even knowing it will never work because of their families. They will have to figure it out with some help from the past to work things out.
Jade is a vet who believes in more than medicine can help heal an animal. She is good at her job and wants to help all animals. She can be very stubborn and doesn't back down from Rex one bit. Rex is pretty much a rugged rancher who is very sexy. Once he sets his mind to something he doesn't let go of it. He is a hard worker and very loyal to his family. It does cause him some problems at times. These two are good characters apart but together they are wonderful.
I adore this series and always can't wait to pick up the next book and read it. You really get to see these characters and how they interact with each other. The author does a great job with them as you can't help but want them all to be happy. I liked both Rex and Jade as they have like a modern day Hatfield & McCoy thing going on. It isn't their feud but they find themselves tangled up in it. They really don't know for sure what the feud is over. They have some help from the past getting together and working out their feelings. I love that touch the author added as it shows love years later and feels very magical. I liked learning more about Rex's family and I have to say I hope nothing happens to Hope in these books as that horse is very special. If you are looking for a fantastic series about a wonderful family and love grab this series.
