Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Taken By Love blog tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

Taken By Love
The Braden’s Series Book 7
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing June 9th, 2014

TAKEN BY LOVE is the first of six hot, wealthy, and wickedly naughty Braden cousins, and the newest additions to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again—but she’s completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her—and the man she’s never forgotten.

Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he’s finally ready to settle down—only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he’s never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke’s past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined.

A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy’s life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can’t manage a future until he puts his past to rest.

My Review 
Daisy couldn't wait to grow up and leave Trusty behind. She had a horrible time in school and now she is deciding where to open her own practice. She has gone back home to help her dad after he was injured. She has never forgot what the girls she went to school with did to her. She also hasn't forgot Luke. Luke has a reputation that just won't leave him. He got into a little trouble and the town won't let him forget it. He is working at being a horse breeder and he didn't expect to run into the feisty Daisy again. He remembers her from school but she is a whole lo different now. Now Luke is wanting Daisy to stay in Trusty with him. He doesn't want to make her mind up for her but he knows he can't let her go.

Don't let the rumors in Trusty fool you Luke is not a trouble maker. He is a very amazing guy who tries his best to do the right thing. He is very caring and willing to help anyone. He is also very sexy and when he makes his mind up he goes for it. Daisy is smart and sexy yet when she comes back to town you can see it has an effect on her. She worries a lot about what other people say and what they think. She loves to help people but is afraid ti get close again to the small town. I love these two so much!

Every time I think I can't enjoy this author's work anymore she comes out with another story that simply amazes me.  This book in some ways has a little more heat than the others but still has the wonderful story line you love if you have read any of this series. I connected so much with this story. The author got the small town living down perfect at least what I have known of it growing up in one. Everyone knows everyone's business and everyone likes to talk. However when you need help they are right there for you. That is what I love about this book besides the two main characters. Daisy has to learn to let go of her past and what happened to her. She has to see everyone grows up at sometime. Luke has to face his past as well. Both even though they are grown ups still have growing and learning to do. I which everyone would read this series and this book. I can't wait to see more of Luke's family and the town of Trusty.
