REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Friendship on Fire by Melissa Foster

Friendship on Fire
The Bradens Series Book Three
By: Melissa Foster

Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break—working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and—just maybe—explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.

Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.

Josh and Riley’s friendship heats up. Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley’s mentor accuses her of stealing the design.  
Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry—and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

Sarah's Review:
Thanks to Melissa Foster and Tasty Book Tours for another wonderful opportunity to read this great series.  I am addicted, not going to lie!   I got this book the afternoon after I finished reading Destined for Love, so I immediately dove in and that was all I did that day.

Josh is one of the Braden brother's and he is a successful fashion designer.  Riley is Jade's best friend.  Rex tells Josh that he needs to check out Riley's portfolio and it leads to Josh giving Riley a job.  Riley and Josh had mutual crushes on each other but neither could cross that line because of the feud between the Braden's and the Johnson's. 

When Riley shows up the first day we meet Cruella, ooops, I mean Claudia, the head design assistant at JBD.  Cruella is a name that fits her to a tee.  She is a bitch and I didn't like her instantly, still don't.   She has her mind set on getting her hooks into Josh and doesn't like Riley from the get go.

While Rex & Jade's story was full of family drama, this story is full of drama in a different way and you are cheering for karma to kick Cruella's ass.  I fell more in love with the Braden family and how they handled this situation. 


  1. Yay! Another addicted reader. I hope your reading didn't take you away from anything important, but I'm so happy to hear how much you're loving the series! Thanks for the awesome review XOXO
