Tasty Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Dreaming Of Love by Melissa Foster

Dreaming of Love
The Bradens #11, Love in Bloom # 19
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing January 20th, 2015

Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.

Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

My Thoughts:

Instead of staying stateside, we travel to enchanting countryside of Tuscany. In this magical tale we accompany Emily to Italy where are there forget what she doesn't have in her life, LOVE. She's a tad bit envious of her brothers, and about to give up on love when she meets Dae. When Dae enters her life, she starts to believe that love might be in her cards. 

I enjoyed Dreaming Of Love, because we have these two people started to believe that they wouldn't find love. However, they start to see that it might be possible. At the same time, they might have problem. You see that Emily is all about preservation and she tends to get blinded by her passion to preserve. While, Dae is a demolitionist. Yep, that could cause a problem with there relationship. So, Emily is has her reservations about their relationship, while Dae tries to get her to see that anything is possible if you look for a way. 

I liked how the story kind of centers around this home called Casa Dei Desideri translated Houses of Wishes. Because of this house, it brought Emily and Dae together. At the same time it could tear them apart. Dreaming Of Love is a beautiful story filled with hope. I also like that Melissa was able to make it feel like the Italian culture was felt throughout the story, especially with myth associated with Casa Dei Desideri. Those who have enjoyed Melissa's work will still find this story enchanting. So, if you want to get swept away in an romantic adventure, take a chance with Dreaming Of Love.
