Book Review + Giveaway: Fated for Love by Melissa Foster


Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing—and maybe having a few too many drinks—on her girls’ weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to stay longer than one night. That is…until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden—the subject of her late-night fantasies.
Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he’s the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.
Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he’s there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie’s influence, Wes might even discover that he’s been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other’s arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.

I rated Fated for Love by Melissa Foster FIVE LEAVES!! 

I have had the privilege of reading a couple books from Melissa’s series and I’ve loved them all; Fated by Love was no different. This story is about Wes, who we met in the last story, a quiet, shy librarian named Callie, a dude ranch and a group of really close girlfriends whose next mission is to get Callie out of the books.  Wes has had some type of connection with Callie for a while never knowing exactly what to call it and doing things like visiting the library every Thursday to get new books he doesn’t ever read just to be close to her; Callie loves her Thursdays for that very same reason: Wes’s visits. What Callie thinks will be a fun spa weekend turns into a weekend filled of facing her fears and trying not to ride Wes like a stallion. (Yes those were the exact words used) Wes is also trying his hardest to follow his own rules about not sleeping with the guest but with the brave, lip biting Callie; it’s really hard for him to not attack herNo sooner do these two finally admit their attraction for each other do problems start to arise. How can Wes go so quickly to being a one woman kind of guy with all his many admires back in town? What will happen once these two leave the comfort of the dude ranch and head back home? You’ll have to read to find out how these two work out their problems whether together or apart. I will warn you though that this book was so sweet I had to make a dentist appointment to check for cavities! It’s worth buying and if you enjoy this there are plenty of others in the series to check out!
