Blog Tour: Fated for Love by Melissa Foster

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

Callie has just moved to Trusty to take up her dream job of becoming a librarian. A month later and she definitely has a highlight, Thursdays when the tall, dark and handsome, Wes Braden makes his appearance. Wes can't help but want to see the petite librarian and enjoys his Thursday trips to see her, but everything changes when Callie's friends take her to Wes' dude ranch rather than a spa. Completely out of her comfort zone, Callie still doesn't want to leave, especially when Wes starts looking at her like he wants to know her. Despite his rule against sleeping with guests, Wes finds himself less and less in control, particularly when Callie keeps surprising everyone.

I knew that I'd enjoy Fated for Love (I was in the right mood for it). And I'm pretty sure that the best way to describe this book is to say that it is more or less a straight forward romance. Boy meets girl, insane passion, happy ever after. There was of course a little more to it than that, but in essence this book was definitely one of the more romantic ones.

One thing that certainly added to the story was Sweets, a previously abandoned blood hound puppy that can't smell. She quickly made her way into everyone's hearts, especially Wes', which softened him as a character. Also Sweets definitely felt like she had a personality of her own (anyone who has owned a puppy will understand that one!) and she did play an important role in the story.

The passion between Callie and Wes was intense. There were times when I was reading the book that I felt the desperation between them and read the scenes faster because of it (that would be the sex scenes mostly) which I think says something about the author's ability to write.

There was definitely another side to Wes as well though because he did some crazily sweet things for Callie and for her friends. This book is worth a read if you're wanting a sweet and fairly straight forward romance.

MEET THE BRADENS COUSINS

About the Book

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 others arms, and they’re about to find out just how alike they really are.
