Destined for Love by Melissa Foster with Giveaway & Review

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.

My Review: 5 stars
I love the way Melissa writes. She has this ability to just pull me into the story and have me not want to put it down. This was the second book in the Bradens series, and I loved that the main characters were Rex and Jade. I knew after reading the first book that there would be one that had Rex and Jade, but had no idea it would be the next one. I loved the loyalty that both of them showed to their families while at the same time trying to stop feeling what they were feeling. But no matter what, you can't stop feeling what you feel, and you can't stop loving someone that you've wanted and loved for 15 years. That's a long time to wait for anyone. I was glad to see that Rex and Jade were able to see their way past old differences, as well as finding that Rex's siblings supported them. I can't wait to find out who Melissa has written about next in the series. I know that it'll be good, and that I'll get sucked into the Braden universe again. But it's a good place to be.
