Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…

Heroine’s 5 years of celibacy is referred to as being a long time which I totally agree with
Hero’s 8 months of celibacy is also referred to as a long time with no sex- I don’t agree with this!
Why this crazy double standard? I’m sick of it! Men don’t need sex to live and if they need an orgasm that badly they can use their hands. Don’t keep telling me the hero doesn’t sleep arou

Only for You was the second book in Melissa Foster’s Sugar Lake series, set in Sweetwater NY.

Bridgette Dalton was a young widow and single mom. She had her forever love, even if only for a short time, and she was content raising her son, running her flower shop and sharing life with her parents and siblings.

Bodhi Booker was the sexy new neighbor who was temporarily in Sweetwater remodeling a home for his mother. He was also former military and a current rescue mission operative. He lost his fath
Only for You was a cute book. My favorite character was probably Louie because kids say the darnest things. I laughed so hard at the end of this book because of what he said - I almost died.

Okay, so this book is the second installation of the Sugar Lake series. In it, you will meet Bridgette and Bodhi. Bridgette is a single mom to the cutest boy ever, Louie, and she owns a flower shop. Then there's Bodhi who is the handsome/sexy ass neighbor of hers and he's in special ops.

Of course these two

Only for You by Melissa Foster is a beautiful, heartfelt contemporary romance and I loved it.

I loved the storyline, it was well written, the plot was entertaining, heartwarming and I loved Bodhi and Bridgette. They were likable, endearing characters that I easily connected with and they warmed my heart watching them come together. These two brought a smile to my face, I enjoyed their honesty and enjoyed their friendship. Bodhi made my heart explode watching him with Bridgette's little b

This book was absolutely fantastic. It hit me in the feels in the best way. Bridgette and Bodhi were impossible not to love.

Bodhi and his gruff exterior was instantly appealing because I wanted to know what his story was. Learning what his history and present were moved that appeal to me being his full blown cheerleader and wanting him to have the wonderful family he was on the verge of having with Bridgette and her sweet little boy.

Bridgette was this fiercely strong, loving, and just amazing c

Only for You (Sugar Lake) by Melissa Foster  
Many of our most defining moments are born of heartache and pain. What makes them prolific is that those instances are when a person is at their strongest. Ms. Foster never seems to forget that and it shows within her stories. In the face of loss, adversity and uncertainty, she inspires. Only for You is a tale of fearlessness. Bridgette is afraid of being left behind.  Bodhi is a loner.  His career has made him that way. A dangerous lifestyle leaves n

What do you get if you mix a friends with benefits relationship with a love portion lotion?
You get the new hot novel by Melissa Foster! She turns up the heat and hearts in Only For You and she completely melts my heart with this tender love story.

Bridgette Dalton, widow, and owner of Sweetwater’s only flower shop is trying to juggle her busy schedule while raising her five-year-old son. She does not have time for the distraction her new gruff, but extremely hot neighbor is becoming. But all the

This was my first time reading Melissa Foster and I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet romance and the ensuing ultra steamy scenes! Bohdi and Bridgette burned up the sheets with their “friends with benefits” idea, and I loved how things backfired on them. I enjoyed the closeness of Bridgette’s family and cracked up over Bridgette’s son Louie, because who could resist a precocious five year old full of sweetness? Bohdi was too perfect, but it’s a romance novel! Where else do you find a ripped ...more

Good God this was a terrible book!!!
I seem to have some sort of homing device that just directs me to truly horrendous romance books with the most god awful plot, characters and God in heaven what was this writing????

If you told me cardbox boxes came to life and started functioning as the humans in this book i would believe you cos that's how stiff the writing was.
MY GOD!!!!
Ugh this was horrible and i totally regret buying this book.

Bridgette is a widow with a 10 year old son. She is busy raising him and it's been so long since she's had any interest in dating anyone - until Bodhi moves in next door. Bodhi is renovating the house for his mother and isn't interested in dating anyone either. He has a dangerous job that he never knows if he will survive and doesn't feel it is fair to get involved with anyone and subject them to that uncertainty and pain. Fortunately for us, Bodhi and Bridgette can't seem to deny the attraction ...more

I thought this story was okay. It wasnt that I disliked it but it was just okay for me. The story line was pretty cliché but did have some cute moments that make it a little better. I enjoyed Bohdi's character and how he likes reading romance novels to keep his mind busy in the battle field stuff. It really is the only way he could be that thoughtful and caring towards someone but lets me honest does a man like that really exist lol Bridgette was such a good mom and always looking out for what w ...more

Okay, so Melissa Foster has always come thru for me. This story was no exception.

This story was gloriously sweet! I wanted to come up with a more eloquent word, but I kept coming back to sweet. I just smiled a heck of a lot when I read it and my heart was happy all the way thru. The relationship between Bodhi & Bridgette was very relatable and I connected very easily with them both! Bodhi's connection and interaction with Louie warmed my heart to no end. This story was the total package you guy

5 Sweet & Swoon Worthy Stars!!

“She was torture and pleasure, sweet and sinful, and he never wanted to let her go.”

“His mouth was like an ocean of heat and desire, and she wanted to sail away to the far reaches of the world and disappear into it.”

“You came out of nowhere, and suddenly you’re all that I see.”

This book was absolute perfection. Sweet, swoon-worthy with just the right amount of angst. Only For You had me hooked from the very first page. Bridgette and Bodhi were impossible to not fall

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

This was my second Melissa Foster book, the first being The Real Thing which is the first book in this series. I enjoyed this one just as I did with the first.

I really love the Dalton family and the bond they all have, and I was curious as to if something would happen with Bridgette and Bohdi after his brief appearance in book 1.

The story is a little unusual from others in terms of the couple actually agreeing that their relations

Emotionally gripping, thrilling, engaging, quirky fun romantic journey that sneaks up on our unsuspecting couple that is not looking for forever, but finds it anyway.

Bridgette Dalton is sexy, sassy fun and a single mom that has been burned by love in the past and is only looking to raise her son, run her flower shop, and possibly have some fun sexy nights with her new hot as sin neighbor. Bodhi Booker is a hot, sexy, charming alpha male between deployments and not looking for forever, but he fi

I've been wanting to read one of Melissa Foster's books for a while now, so when the opportunity arose to take part in the blog tour Only for You, the second book in the Sugar Lake series, I instantly said yes. As it turns out, I'm so glad I did! Only for You is adorable, heartwarming, and most importantly, super high on the steam scale.

Only for You introduces the alternating perspectives of Bridgette Dalton and Bodhi Booker.

This bare repeating John Lane did a fabulous job with narrating another hit from Melissa Foster.

She had been hurt by love and did not want that again in her life. Her son was her priority. So what that the first time to feel sexy in anyway cake from a stranger to town that later turned in to her next door neighbor.

When our heart gets broke, instinct causes us to withdraw & curl up to protect it from hurt again. Often it takes something special, like a child's love, to pull us from such a dark & dismal part of our lives. Only the truly brave & strong open themselves up to the pain again. Bridgette lost her young husband in a horrible accident. She's dedicated her life to raising her son & trying to make up for him growing up without a father. She doesn't need a man in her life.

Be still my heart. Bridgette and Bohdi will capture your heart and pull on every emotion known to man in this book. In true Melissa Foster fashion, our hero and heroine face trials that may seem difficult to some but Melissa knows her characters and what they can handle. We always get our HEA even if certain parts in the book make us gasp, OH NO!

Melissa Foster does it again! I absolutely loved Bodhi and Bridgette's story. The story was beautifully written and Melissa did an amazing job of making us fall in love with the characters, and Bridgette's son is so adorable! I am also a sucker for single mom stories. When the love interest becomes buddies with the kid, my heart is gone. Bodhi's relationship with Bridgette's son is so cute and I couldn't get enough.

Bodhi Booker…..Remember that name, because you are going to want to meet this AMAZING Hero!!!

I think I have found a new favorite series. I think this series might just be my favorite of Melissa Fosters. I absolutely adored every word in this book!! I honestly couldn’t read it fast enough. I also couldn’t help getting sucked into the world of Sweetwater.

Only For You is the second stand

Sweetness abounds in the second installment of the Sugar Lake series, which was fitting given the name of the town in which the story took place. The story was not only sweet; it was heart-warming, funny and entertaining. I got my first glimpse of the main characters in the first book and could not wait to dive into their story and it sure was worth every waiting moment. Only for You tells the story of a single mom and the man who made her realise falling in love the second time around can be as ...more

“But I’m not so sure the way you lose someone you love makes the pain of losing them any easier or more difficult. It’s the emptiness they leave behind that hurts so badly, regardless of whether they deliberately walked away or were taken from us. But the heart is a wonderful, strong organ. It has the ability to heal and grow and love more than one person. The trickier part is finding someone who makes your heart want to love again. Someone who fills all those empty places and then some.” 1 likes
