Wild, Crazy Hearts was the fourth book in the Braden’s & Montgomery’s: Pleasant Hill & Oak Falls series by Melissa Foster.

Brindle Montgomery and Trace Jericho had been on again and off again with no strings attached since they were thirteen and fifteen respectively. They were now twenty eight and thirty and stuck in the same revolving cycle. Both were gorgeous, sexy, independent, loyal, funny and stubborn. To the outside world, they were two peas in a pod and perfect for each other.

When Brindle popped up at the end of the the previous book, I knew that her and Trace's story was going to be an interesting one.

And Ms Foster has not disappointed with Wild, Crazy Hearts.

Now, I have terrible bookzheimers, and with all of Ms Foster's cross over series, I have a terrible time remembering who belongs with whom, however once I start the story it doesn't bother me, as I am in there with the new couple.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I am very sorry, but this is the first book by Melissa, that I absolutely couldn't get into. Brindle and Trace are way to childish and all that forced media stuff... That one big lie, that took ages to get straightend - just too much.

Wild Crazy Hearts is the latest in Melissa Fosters Montgomery and Bradens of Oak Hill sub series of her eponymous Love in Bloom series. Wild and crazy refers to both Brindle Montgomery and Trace Jericho who too often act more like the immature teens they were when they first started seeing each other than the now twelve years later adults in their mid-twenties they are. Brindle is the driving force in this bi-polar relationship. Her insistence that they are just fooling around or fuck-buddies an ...more

About the book: Release Date June 12, 2019

High school teacher Brindle Montgomery and rancher Trace Jericho have been close friends forever and on-again off-again lovers for years. As rebellious as they are stubborn, they're both perfectly happy with their no-strings-attached hookups. But when Brindle returns from a trip to Paris with a baby bump, it sends Trace's wild, crazy heart into a frenzy--and Brindle is left wondering if she's made the biggest mistake of her life.

Melissa Foster hasn't written a book that I have read that I didn't like. Only a few remain to be read by me. This one is no different. I loved this book. Ms. Foster knows how to draw you right in from the first page and hang on to you until the end. With these stories, The Bradens, Montgomeries and more I am always lost as to which person goes with which family, but by the time I read the book I am back on track until the next one. lol It really doesn't matter though, they all can stand on thei ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is one of many interwoven books by the very talented Melissa Foster - there are always stories which overlap, characters who we've met before, or who's stories are just waiting to be written down. This richness makes for a wonderful experience when picking up a new book, as one's mind connects the dots and remembers much loved snippets of previous reads. It is a wholly immersive, and very pleasurable adventure. But

"You are my princess, Mustang. You're my princess, my wild girl, my everything."

Wild, Crazy Hearts by Melissa Foster is the 4th book in her Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls series. Don't worry this and all the books in the series can be read and enjoyed as a standalone.

This book brings us the crazy, intense, roller coaster ride of a relationship that is Brindle and Trace. They have been constantly on and off again since they were

Trust and communication are two things that both Brindle “Mustang” Montgomery and Trace “Cowboy” Jericho desperately need to work on.

They have a non-traditional relationship and are more than best friends with benefits since teenagers. Brindle is a wild child at heart and has never wanted to be tied down or viewed marriage the way other women do. At least that’s what she’s always thought. They fight like teenagers, lashing out at each other and pretending they don’t care, but pretending to be a

Brindle and Trace have been an on again off again couple since their early teenage years now in their mid twenties they are hit with a bit of unexpected news. Well, I guess I should back up a bit and let you know that Brindle decided to go to Paris for six weeks at the end of Trails of Love to clear her head and see where her heart was. She returns with more than just the answer that had always been in her heart.

It's no surprise that I am a huge Melissa Foster fan when you read a book like this,

Ever since I started reading about the Montgomery sisters and the Jericho brothers, I have eagerly been awaiting Brindle’s story. She is the wild child of the family, but behind the rule-breaking and the sneaking around, is a girl with a heart, and one as big as the ocean.

So when you learn at the end of ‘Trails Of Love’ that Brindle has returned home pregnant from her trip to Paris, the family is stunned to silence. It was the perfect cliffhanger, that had me waiting desperately for this book to

I loved reading about Brindle and Trace. They have had a very complicated relationship since they were teenagers and it all blew up when Brindle gets back from her vacation in Paris.

Brindle went to Paris and extended her stay to think things through and how she wanted to move forward in her life with Trace. She suspected she was pregnant before she went, but didn't find out for sure until she was in Paris. She found a few friends to help her with her predicament and how she can maybe have a rea

If you love small town, cowboy romance stories, this series s for you. I’m not normally a huge fan of them but after winning this I figured I should give it a go. While missing my big city fun, this story is filled with small town drama, 2 souls bound to collide and the opportunity for forever.

Mustang and a cowboy!

If your a fan of Melissa Foster then you already know that your in for a wild crazy ride in this addiction to the series.

Brindle Montgomery thought she needed to leave Pleasant Hill, leave her cowboy behind to see if how she felt was real and not clouded by history and lust. A few months in Paris and she back home to tell the man she loves that not only does she want to commit to a relationship with him but that she’s also carrying his baby. However their reunion does not go

I have been waiting for Brindle and Trace’s story since finishing Trails of Love and the wait was completely worth it!

Brindle returns home from France pregnant. Needless to say her family and her on and off again lover were completely surprised. Of course, Trace doesn’t take the news well and kind of lashes out at Brindle.

Their relationship started when they were 13 and 15 and has continued throughout their adult lives. They have had so many ups and downs. I swear they have one of the most inte

Wild horses couldn’t keep me away from this story! It was original, thought provoking, hurtful, joyful....EVERYTHING you’d ever want in a romance! Melissa Foster excelled in weaving Brindle’s pregnancy into a meaningful, relatable story. Brindle is a wild, free spirit who doesn’t always think before she speaks. It took a lonely trip overseas to truly find herself. Even though her trip to Paris was a lonely one, she finally realized her love for Trace. Brindle realized she didn’t just love Trace, ...more

Brindle Montgomery is a truly free spirit. Trace Jericho is up one second and down the next. One of his friends gives him a dressing-down. I gave them an imaginary high five. But he’ll come to grow on you. These are two characters with strong personalities even though their thought processes may be a little skewed.

This has to be the author’s most complicated couple that I’ve read to date. They constantly had me shaking my head. But they also had me going back for more. Then Trace does something

I enjoyed reading this book. I love couples who are so in love with each other like Brindle and Trace and without realising it.
Brindle, a wild child, an untamed woman and her better (cowboy) half, Trace who can accept her and love her just the way she is. Also he takes care of her, protects her no matter what. Even

After I read Trails of Love I was absolutely dying to know what happened with Trace and Brindle. Their whole relationship was a bit of a mystery to me and I wasn't really sure how everything was going to go.

And to be honest normally I wouldn't read this book because they were so on and off and the relationship angst between these two was enough to give me knots in my stomach. But I knew Melissa would fix my heart if it got broken in the process and I so desperately needed to know after the teas

Wild Crazy Hearts is the perfect title for Trace and Brindle’s story. #TeamTrindle!

Trace Jericho is hot, sweet cowboy that never thought anyone woman could catch his heart, he loved living and loving.
Trace is lost when Brindle left to pretty much find herself. Now she is home, and he has a few things to say.

Brindle is the baby of the Montgomery girls aka the wild child; nothing could slow her down. Brindle loved having fun and her partner in crime felt the same, but what happens when things and

Since the moment we found out that Brindle is pregnant in Trails of love, I have bee dying to read this book. I wanted to find out who the baby daddy was (it was mentioned that both of them had been with other people on their off days) and how Trace and Brindle were going to stop and cycle and actually become a healthy couple. We find out early on who is the daddy and as we move forward we see how Brindle and Trace are handling the pregnancy.

Brindle and Trace have been friends with benefits for years, and yet, everyone knows they have caught feelings, but she's not coming off of hers, so he's not either especially with Brindle's vocal hatred of marriage, etc. She leaves for Paris to re-evaluate everything, and when she comes home, she's pregnant & was planning to admit her views had changed, but instead she comes with guns blazing.

He’s not perfect, but he loves with his entire heart and waits, and forgives, and sacrifices for the woman and family he loves.
