Blurb:


Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

Fall in love with Beau Braden and Charlotte Sterling in ANYTHING FOR LOVE. 

After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue—even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates—until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.



Johnaka's Review:


“Healing the heart broken, 5 stars”


Beau once knew love, but it fell apart. He feels like he’s to blame a decade though he logically knows he’s not. Beau is running from his past and doesn’t want to face it. He decides to help a family friend fix up her house but finds the house isn’t the only thing being fixed. Will he embrace Charlotte and her quirks, or will he push her to the side?

Charlotte has no family left and it hurts her heart. She spends all her time at her families old Inn and writing stories. Her mind is always fluttering with ideas and thoughts and she channels it into her books. But when Beau shows up she starts to channel all that energy into him. She recognises the look in his eye, because broken recognises broken. The question is she willing to help him move on?

These two were polar opposites who really needed one another to balance each other out. Charlotte reminded Beau not to take life so seriously. Beau reminded her to come up for air and to live in the real world. They both thought they were headed in different directions with their lives but found out they really needed to be on the same path.

I love how protective Beau was but understood that Charlotte was a free spirit. Charlotte wasn’t wanting to take the place of Beau’s past love and accepted her place in his life and I loved that. The secondary characters just upped the ante. These two spent a lot of time alone but when those other people were around they really did make their points known.

It was a beautiful quick story based on finding love for the second time and healing wounds. The past belongs in the past and you can’t carry that baggage with you, and Foster did a great job pushing that point through.
