TITLE - Embracing Her Heart
AUTHOR - Melissa Foster





Blurb:

Welcome to Oak Falls, Virginia, home to horse farms, midnight rodeos, bookstores, coffee shops, and quaint restaurants where you’re greeted like family and treated like treasured guests. Buckle up for a wild ride. Like any Southern girls worth their salt, the sweet-talking, sharp-tongued Montgomery sisters can take men to their knees with one seductive glance or a single sugarcoated sentence.

In EMBRACING HER HEART…
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross.

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…

Johnaka's Review:

“Second chances, 5 stars”

Grace and Reed were once in love but life set them on different paths. Now they are standing in front of each other and realize they still want one another. Only problem is Grace is only in town for a short time and knows there’s no point in getting involved. But Reed? He sees it as a second chance to get the girl who got away.
These two balanced each other out perfectly and you felt the love. I loved the family interaction and trust me there was a lot where Grace is from a large family. When reading Embracing Her Heart you get a story about a couple who once had to hide because of school rivalries and are now feel to be in the open. It’s a sweet fast read that I highly enjoyed.
