Blog Tour: Flirting with Love by Melissa Foster

I received a copy of Flirting with Love in exchange for my review.

Elisabeth Nash spent time in Trusty as a child, and ever since has known that she will return. When her aunt Cora dies, she leaves Elisabeth her farmette and pie baking company, though Elisabeth struggles somewhat to fit in straight away. Ross Braden has always believed that there's a woman out there for him, not that he'd ever let his brothers know that, but he doesn't date women from Trusty...until Elisabeth shows up at his Vetenary surgery with a piglet in tow. Instantly taken with her, he wants to try and help her make a go of it, but is wary of the people of Trusty accepting her business.

As normal with Melissa Foster's books, there isn't a bad word that can be said for Flirting with Love, there were fun moments, passionate moments and family moments, just like with the other books. Of course when given the opportunity to read Flirting with Love I jumped at it!

One thing that I couldn't help thinking while reading was that of all the Braden syblings, the one that actually is the most involved in everything is Emily. There just seems to be more added to her character with each of her brothers' stories, which makes me excited for her story, but also happy that she's got good friends! The other girls also played a part in Flirting with Love and it was good to see them all interacting.

I thought, compared to most, that Ross and Elisabeth's relationship was actually fairly smooth from the beginning. They quickly admitted they were attracted to each other, and even though it took them a few days to actually act on that, they did and not much actually shook them. Even the big drama near the end didn't seem to shake them up too much, they still knew what they wanted.

I really liked how driven Elisabeth was, and how she wasn't quite organised in the way she was trying to get her business off the ground. I know that sounds like a strange thing to say, but she didn't have it all planned out it just sort of happened, and I loved that. It felt like real life and like the way that people did just fall into work.

There were more family dynamics in Flirting with Love as well, and it is easy to love the Bradens. They're a close family, with only Pierce and Jake living away from Trusty at all, and even then they were still part of the fun. I'm loving getting to know this family! And can't wait for more!


Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt's farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood--and falling for Trusty's hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.
Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy. For that reason, he doesn't date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life--and his heart--inside out.
Despite rumors about Elisabeth's motives toward her aunt's property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth's efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future..
