Chased by Love, Love in Bloom: The Ryders #3

Actress Trish Ryder takes her job seriously and has no time for those who don't. When she's awarded a major role in a new movie featuring America's hottest rock star, Boone Stryker, she's beyond excited. The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft--but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he's just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker's private world. He's coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he's not likely to change--until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

*** THE RYDERS are the newest addition to the LOVE IN BLOOM series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This 5-book hot contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction. While each book may be read as a standalone, you might enjoy reading the entire Love in Bloom series (The Snow Sisters, The Bradens, The Remingtons, & Seaside Summers)

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My thoughts:

Trish Ryder is a squeaky clean, hardworking actress who is excited by the prospect of working with rock star Boone Stryker on a script that could launch her career to new heights and win her an Oscar.

However, Boone misses meetings, freezes up on camera and is surrounded by partying groupies. Trish is watching her future slip through her fingers and Boone is hiding his past. In a last-ditch effort to salvage the movie the director sends them away together to the middle of nowhere for 10 days.

They have 10 days to get it together, get Boone's acting up to par, and to see if the spark between them can become a flame. But Trish's digging into Boone is hurting both of them. Can they survive these days and make a movie? And will the spark survive?

I really enjoyed this book, as always for Melissa Foster's books. Then tension and spark between these two was amazing, and the writing was so well developed that I could picture the scenes in my mind without trying. It was also very nice to see more of the Ryder family and watch them interact with their little sister. I can't wait for more!

Spring Fling Kitty Book Review and Giveaway

Heartbreaker Connor Hart, one of the youngest fire chiefs in the country, is planning on marrying Dr. Elaine Woo, a woman who pretended to cheat on him with his best friend many years ago. She bought him a Dalmatian puppy, he gave her a ring—and the women of San Francisco are about to lose their most eligible bachelor.

Artist and poet Nadine Woo is down on her luck. The cast-off half-sister of Dr. Elaine Woo, she doesn’t measure up, according to her strict and distant father. When Nadine and her mother are about to be evicted from their apartment, she gets an interesting offer from her sister. Seems she’s in need of a little help concerning her relationship with Fire Chief Connor Hart.

As soon as Nadine meets Connor, she knows she’s in for a rough ride. Connor is the fireman who rescued her and her little gray kitten, and she’s never forgotten how safe she felt in his arms.

When Nadine takes her sister’s place at a spring fling weekend with Connor, love ignites, and there’s no going back.

Can a spunky little kitty show Connor and Nadine that doing the wrong thing is sometimes right, especially when it comes to love?

My thoughts:

This is the first of the Have a Hart series that I've read, but I can tell you that it won't be the last!

Connor Hart is engaged to a woman who everyone in his family dislikes. To top it off, she's spent their relationship manipulating and lying to him. Meanwhile, Connor rescued a wonderful woman and her kitten from a tree, and they can't stop thinking about each other.

As Connor and Nadine get to know each other better he realizes that he's made a huge mistake waiting for Elaine all this time.

This is where a "typical" sweet romance would end. However, Rachelle Ayala is so much more than a typical writer! This couple encounters danger, mysteries and heartache. Can they survive what life is throwing out them and come out with their relationship (and their pets) unscathed?

Spring Fling Kitty is Book #3 of the Have A Hart Romance Series. It can be read standalone, although characters from the previous books appear here in supporting roles.
