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

Romancing My Love 
The Bradens # 9
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing September 15th, 2014

After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

My Review
Rebecca is a proud woman who has fallen on hard times. She gave up her dream to care for her terminally ill mother. That is something she doesn't regret one bit. Now she is all alone and living in her car. She just quit her job but is determined to get a new one and get back on her feet. She doesn't want a hand out and wouldn't take it if you did give it to her. She really doesn't want a man stepping in trying to fix things for her. Pierce is a successful man and he has never been bitten by the love bug. When he meets Rebecca he sees a strong sexy woman and just has to get to know her better. He does everything he can to help her even when she doesn't want it. She keeps how hard it has been from him but she can't deny he is slipping under her skin. They both have control issues and have to learn to trust each other and open up.

Pierce is a sexy powerful man who isn't looking for love. He works hard and loves to take care of things for those he cares about. He is forgetful at times. Rebecca is a very strong woman who is very proud. She has had to have help a few times but it isn't something she ask for herself. She only took what she had to to help her mom. She never gives up even when she is living in her car. She isn't willing to let go of control and Pierce is used to jumping in and taking control.

I always love the Braden men and the women they fall for. Pierce I have to say isn't my favorite one but I did like him. Rebecca I loved. She has had life kick her down but she never gives up. She has goals in mind and she still reaches for them even when she has hit rock bottom. While at times she can be to proud I have to respect her for that. I love the chemistry between the two and how they are good together. Pierce never puts her down and he even takes her opinion in to play. He sees beyond just her body and respects her mind. Always a great thing. She does keep it a secret she was living in her car and never wants anyone to think she is using him for his money. I have to say they have a great story and I loved seeing them both come to terms about their control issues. They have to learn to hide nothing and help each other without pushing. If you haven't read this series it is a must read. These character become like your family after you read the books and you just keep wanting to know more and more.
