"He’d been wrong when he’d thought he’d felt nothing before her. He felt so damn much with Trixie, he realized he had felt something before. He’d felt empty."
Oh my... I love when it feels like I'm not just reading a book, but I'm actually part of it. This has been my second Melissa Foster book, and it's nothing short of amazing.

Everyone who's read my reviews knows I'm a fan of friends to lovers. But there are different types of friends to lovers, and this one pushed ALL my buttons.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.I have been eagerly awaiting Nick, and Trixie’s story, and Foster did not disappoint. This is the seventh book in the Bradens and Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill- Oak Fall series. Like all the other books in the series, readers can read it as a standalone. All of her books are inter-connected as we see characters from this series and others playing a role in this boo ...more

Hot for Love was the seventh book in the Braden’s & Montgomery’s: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls series by Melissa Foster. It was also one of the many in the Love in Bloom series.

Trixie Jericho was the lone female of the Jericho siblings; therefore, she was protected by her alpha brothers and not always taken seriously. Her career aspirations aligned with her family legacy; however, she needed to branch out from under her family’s cover to see it grow to its fullest capabilities. Enter Nick.

Let me start by saying I am #TEAMNIXIE all the way!

Is there anything better than friends to lovers? Not for me, I absolutely LOVE this trope and Melissa Foster does it so well I consider her the Queen of F2L, and here's why...although we have encountered several friends to lovers stories throughout the Love In Bloom Series they are NEVER THE SAME!

This is Nick Braden and Trixie Jericho's story, they have been friend's for years but over the last year things have changed. Trixie wants to start he

‘Hot For Love’ is the seventh book in the Braden and a Montgomery series by Melissa Foster, and my freaking god this book!

Wow...just wow! I was not ready for Nick Braden. I thought I was, but I was dead wrong. For this book boyfriend made me fall head over heels in love with him from the minute I heard he was a cowboy biker. (I mean, what a combination!)

The chemistry between Trixie and Nick is off the charts- literally they’ve broken the scale! I’ve always believed strong relationships are buil

No one writes friends to more stories better than Melissa Foster. Fight me. She delivers the relationship in a way where you feel you’ve known them as long as they’ve known each other. You’re in their circle. You’re their friend as well. It’s magical. Her storytelling skills are untouchable. I haven’t always felt a kinship to her characters, but I have always felt and enjoyed the path she writes for her characters.

I honestly cannot think of a single thing I did not love about both Trixie and Ni

Lovely story. Great characters and storyline. If you are looking for a perfect friend to lovers book, search no more this is the one for you. Hot cowboy, off the chart chemistry, what more you need. Another 5 star read from lovely Melissa Foster.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
Author Melissa Foster has done it again. She brought the Braden and Jericho families together again with Nick and Trixie. Nick Braden is the protector, an alpha male that has wanted Trixie since the first time she stayed at his ranch. But he doesn't think she feels the same way, so he will be her friend. Besides, he doesn't believe in love or relationships.
Trixie Jericho is the free spirit, take charg

Loved Trixie and Nick! This couple has the best chemistry of all the couples in this series. The way their friendship transitioned into love was so natural and believable. I'm really interested in Jax and can't wait to read his book. Don't know how long I'll have to wait. The next one is about is Amber and Dash - Sweet, Sexy Heart and I'm looking forward to it's release in August. ...more

I adored this book so much. Melissa Foster is one of my go-to authors and this book showcased why. I loved Nick and Trixie so much. I would love to be friends with Trixie; she was so fun and kindhearted. Nick was her perfect match. He had the perfect mix of alpha gruffness and hidden sweetness. I flew through this book and cannot wait for what Melissa writes next.

This is Trixie Jericho and Nick Braden's book. As per the usual stories we get from this author it was very hard to put down!! It was full of all the things that you want in a friends to lover's romance - humour, flying sparks, sexy fun times with plenty of emotions and at the heart of it all is a true love story!!

Hot for Love is the emotional and steamy friends to lovers story of Nick Braden and Trixie Jerico.
Nick and Trixie have been friends for years. While Trixie has been harbouring feelings for Nick for quite some time, Nick has shown no interest beyond friendship.
Disheartened by her brothers amusement about her dream to start up a miniature horse therapy business Trixie is elated when Nick steps in offering her assistance, his connections, and a place to stay as they work

Hot for Love
is a new romance by Melissa Foster. It's book 7 in The Braden & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls series. She has created this huge book universe, and they all fit together seamlessly and each are written in a way that they can be read as standalone for new readers and feel like visiting old friends for readers that are fans of the series.

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

This is the seventh book in the series, but as any Foster fan will know all of her books have links across them, which make them just the most fun to read, as it's like going to a family reunion and getting caught up on how everyone is doing! And though I do enjoy beach based ones, I do have a soft spot for cowboys and horse-centred ones too, so this was a hugely enjoyable read.

Steamy, Emotional and absolutely addicting. The moment I started reading I fell in love with Nick and Trixie! They have been friends for years and there has always been chemistry between them, but neither one of them really acted upon that chemistry and the connection they had.

I couldn’t get enough of these two. Nick’s love for his animals showed throughout this entire story. You can feel how much he truly cares for them. Plus, the peacefulness of his farm. Trixie is a little fireball and I lov

We know the Jericho kids. If you have read any of the previous books, we have ran into them and know that they are hard working, big hearted, strong, independent and stubborn (fairly standard for a lot of Melissa’s characters!)

Trixie is no exception.

She is the only girl to her brothers, and daddy’s little girl, but that doesn’t stop her from being sweet, sexy, determined, and just as stubborn.

The Braden men are known for the same thing and Nick is no exception either. He is private, quiet, hardw

Hot for Love is a full of sass, friendship, and growth. This book is one of my favorites in the Love in Bloom series because the main characters are from my two favorite families. I love the loyalty and connection the Jerichos and the Bradens have.

Trixie is strong, caring, and determined. She knows what she wants and finds a way to make it happen. Her business idea is fantastic for her life style. Melissa Foster does a great job of making Trixie's passion come to life.

Nick is loyal, protective

Melissa Foster has taken two of my favorite characters and given them their own book. I have loved the little snippets of Trixie and Nick that have appeared in previous books. And even those small bits have had me wanting the two get together.

Trixie, though, has overbearing older brothers. Nick is, of course, friends with her brothers. There is some weird code between guys about their sisters. I am sure every younger sister out there has wanted to tell an older brother to back off. Instead, Trix

Trixie Jericho is a spitfire. Growing up with only brothers she has always had to prove herself. Prove that she can keep up with the boys, prove that she can handle herself, and prove that she can follow her own dreams. Nick Braden, sigh, has offered Trixie his house as a home base for the next month to figure out what it will take to start her own miniature horse business. He has no doubt it will be hard to share his house with Trixie since he has been attracted to her and has had feelings for ...more

If you are looking for more awesome books to read while stuck at home I got a perfect book for you. As you know Melissa Foster is one of my absolute favorite authors and she has a new book out called Hot for Love and it is amazing. If you love happy ever after romance stories any of Melissa’s books are perfect but this one made me have all the feels.

This book follows Nick and Trixie’s story. Nick is a broody handsome cowboy that everyone can easily fall in love with if he can let his walls down.

You're going to need a fan and a big glass of ice water for this book, because it's HOT! Trixie and Nick have been great friends for years, but lately they've both had secret feelings for each other. When Trixie wants to go out on her own (and out from under her family's wings) it makes perfect sense to stay with her good friend, who will help her start her business.

But they're both struggling being around each other, thinking like their feelings are a one way street. All it takes is one challen

This is the seventh book in the Bradens & Montgomery’s: Pleasant Hill-Oak Falls series by Melissa Foster. I thought the sixth book was the best but boy I was wrong this is definitely the best now. This is about Trixie Jericho and Nick Braden. Trickie had a dream to have a therapy miniature horse program for quite sometime and her brothers continuously made fun of her for this dream. Trixie has always helped out on her family ranch so she was hard worker and she went after what she wanted with th ...more
