Destined for Love (Love in Bloom: The Bradens, Book Two): 5 - Melissa Foster

I was introduced to Rex Braden in the previous book Lovers at Heart, Rex has helped his dad working on the family ranch since leaving school, he's loyal, honorable, strong, a family guy and obviously rather handsome. The problem is that the girl he is in love with, Jade, the very girl he has loved since school, is a 'Johnson' and is strictly off limits. The Johnson's and the Braden's are the centre of one massive family feud after both fathers fell out over a land dispute years ago, the very mention of each others name is prohibited. What makes matters even worse is that Jade is just as much in love with Rex as he is with her, but neither want to break their families hearts and cause more distress than there already is.  Jade and Rex have years of pent up affection, lust and love for each other, will love win out or will their family loyalty win?

I enjoyed the whole horsey theme to this story, especially the close bond and affection all the Bradens have for their mothers horse Hope, their father had bought their mother the horse when she became ill before she passed away.  Loosing their mother affected each of the Braden family deeply in different ways and there is such a connection to Hope.

The second half of the book strongly grabbed me and I read it in one day, I just couldn't put it down because I needed to know what was going to happen next, it was intense and emotional! The author easily pulls you into the story feeling that your part of it as it unfolds.

The story is not only hot and steamy but it's also heartwarming, emotional, and reinforces just how much family really matters.
