Dreaming of Love
The Bradens #11, Love in Bloom # 19
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing January 20th, 2015
Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown,
and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s
watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get
away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.
Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a
demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better.
His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him
reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else
he’s ever believed about himself.
Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their
romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep
connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the
property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in
preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation

Thanks to Melissa Foster and Tasty Book Tours for once again giving me the opportunity to read and review another amazing book. I have been addicted to the Love in Bloom series and the following series that have spun off of the original three books. The Braden’s (Hal’s kids), The Remington’s, The Braden’s (Catherine’s kids), the Seaside series, and I hear there are more coming! There are so many great romances in this collection and I can’t wait for more.
Oh, this book had me feeling things that scare the crap out of me because love and romance is something that is severely lacking in my life. That is what Melissa does with every single book I read and I love it! I read this book while I was home sick with the flu and it took me longer to read because of that. However, I loved it.
Emily Braden is Catherine’s only daughter and her brothers are the alpha protective brothers that define the Bradens. Her brothers sent Emily to Tuscany for vacation since she is constantly working and doing things for her family and clients. Emily is a true romantic at heart and I have been looking forward to reading her story.
Dae Bray is in Tuscany on business when he meets Emily but he also has a special connection to the Bradens via the Remingtons. Dae is Leanna’s brother from Leanna and Kurt’s book. When I caught the connection, I thought about the 6 degrees of separation for this entire series. I love how there are continuous connections.
I love how Dae and Emily found a way to connect despite Dae being in Tuscany to work. I loved reading about the sites and local folklore that was included in this book. There are so many things I loved about reading this book because I will probably never get to go to Italy.
This is a 5 Kiss review.
