REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Destined for Love by Melissa Foster

Destined for Love
The Bradens Series Book Two
By: Melissa Foster

Rex Braden is wealthy, hard working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over forty years, moves back into town.

After ditching a horrific relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.

Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny—and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.

Sarah's Review
Thanks to Melissa Foster and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to continue to read this great series.  I have been hooked since the very first story, Sisters in Love.  With each book, I fall more in love with the characters.  

Rex, oh sexy, stubborn, Alpha male cowboy Rex.  We met Rex in Lovers at Heart, since he is Treat's brother.  

Jade, is the daughter of Earl Johnson, who has had an ongoing conflict with Hal Braden, the father of the Braden's.  

Family feud, long time crush (mutual) and stubbornness lead to an amazing hot forbidden romance, until Momma Braden intervenes from Heaven in only a way that she could.  Hope, her horse, has an amazing way of bringing Hal to follow what Momma Braden wants done.   (Side note: Melissa, can we get a picture of Hope??)  

Family, loyalty and love bring about changing two old men and ending a 40 year feud.  I think Momma Braden had enough.  

As of right now, Rex and Jade's story is my favorite of the Braden's and Snow Sisters.  I can't wait to read the rest of them! 


  1. I'm so happy you enjoyed Rex and Jade's story - it seems to be a favorite to many. Nothing like a hot cowboy to warm your winter reading :)
    I'll have to see about finding a pic of Hope. I write with the character pictures staring at me to encourage and inspire.
    Thanks for the awesome review! XOXO
