Tasty Book Tours Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Flirting With Love by Melissa Foster

Flirting With Love
The Bradens # 10
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing December 15th, 2014

FLIRTING WITH LOVE is the newest addition to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.


Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy.  For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.

Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.

My Thoughts: 

I have to say that I liked Flirting With Love, because it was just a sweet story. So, we have Elisabeth Nash who is wanting to start her life over in Trusty, Colorado after she finds out her aunt left her home. She decided to make a go, after all she loved the place as a kid. However, the good people of Trusty aren't so keen on her being there, after all she's an outsider. Yet, she makes an effort be nice and friendly. One word that popped up that would describe Elisabeth is genuine. Of course the rumors start to fly, but Elisabeth doesn't let that bother her, instead she shows them that she there to stay. Ross Braden has this rule no dating anyone from Trusty, because people tend to talk and butt into everyones business. Which is an overall good rule, since dating others outside of town you don't get the normal gossip. So, when Elisabeth waltzes into town he doesn't know what to make of her. As he gets to know her, he starts to through out his rule. He honestly likes the person Elisabeth is. Plus, they have a lot in common.

Another part of the story I liked was Ross's relationship with an inmate name Trout. At first it doesn't seem like there is a relationship developing there cause Trout is closed off, but we slowly get to know him. He's kind of a deep guy. I think this helps Ross grow a little more.

Honestly, Flirting With Love is a pretty easy going the story. As I said, you see a relationship developing between Trout and Ross (I wouldn't say a friendship, because Trout still keeps a certain distance). You get to see the dynamic of the small town slowly accepting a new person into their community. I like that Elisabeth went out her way to prove herself to the town folk. That just melted my little heart to see her wear them down. I liked Ross and Elisabeth's easy going relationship. Plus, they are both have soft spots for true love. Sweet and sappy at times, and at times with a little heat (not to much) that it starts to melt you. So, if you are looking for something light, and gives you happy ending, you might give Flirting With Love a go.

Favorite Lines:
"That's what I meant, when I said that I believed in true love and all things warm and fuzzy. Think nowadays couples think love can be bought." She signed. "But the way I feel is true love can never be bought, or faked, or even manipulated. It's only got one true form, and it isn't complete until tow people come together, and then..." She shrugged. "God, I sound like a dreamer."
