Tasty Book Tour Spotlight + Review + Giveaway: Crashing Into Love by Melissa Foster

Crashing Into Love
Love in Bloom #20: The Bradens # 12
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing March 17th, 2015

Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.

My Thoughts:

When I started Crashing Into Love, I wasn't sure I was going to like Jake. Granted I had love him in other stories, when he was a jerk to Fiona I was like "Oh no,  he didn't moment". LOL. Anyway, I have to give a lot a credit to Fiona for going after Jake when he had this animosity towards her. I think I would have curled up into a ball and hid in a corner, but she had spunk. As you can guess, they had a past relationship that didn't end too well. In Fiona's defense, I think she was trying to figure things out, and follow her mother's council. Did she handle the situation well? No. Could there have been a better way to handle it? Of course, but she's human. Anyway, she was able to see past Jake's surliness, and try to make amends. Yay, they are getting a second chance.

Jake, what a lovable manwhore. When he finally decides to give Fiona a second chance he starts to realize that his life-style isn't conducive to for a relationship. So, he had to make some serious changes. I adore that he was willing to change his habits for Fiona, and I like that he realized it. We all know sometimes guys aren't so attentive to others feelings. Fiona was cute for going after what she wanted, and it could have ended up in disaster. It almost did, thank goodness Jake came to his senses.

Okay, I enjoyed Crashing Into Love, because we have two people who needed to grow-up a little more, and sow some wild oats before actually coming together. Even though they were able to get back together it wasn't all roses, they had their troubles. Especially, with Jake's manwhore past keeps creeping and Fiona trying to be understanding. Overall, a pretty good read. Nothing like have true love conquer all. So, if you are looking for a Hollywood hunk that is making a go for a second chance of love, you have met your match in Crashing Into Love. Who knows you might crash into new hunky book boyfriend.
