by Melissa Foster
Narrator: B.J. Harrison
Length: 8 hours 28 minutes
Publisher: Melissa Foster
Released: Dec. 01, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Come take a ride on the side of Trusty. See the other side of the Bradens. Get more of their story and start it all with Luke Braden. He's the baby but he sure packs a lot in. Daisy Honey had no idea that her high school crush would one day mean so much to her. She goes back to the town she vowed to never make her home and find more than just a new person to love and cherish. She finds that maybe the way she saw things all those years ago may have been a bit more than she could understand at that time. If you have ever read a Melissa Foster book you will not be disappointed with this one. I found that romance to be expected but sweet. The passion open yet tame. This by no means was a clean romance but it was sweet with fire. There are scenes of intense pleasure but nothing that would put you off the enjoyment of the listen. B.J. Harrison did a fair job. I found it hard at some points to distinguish male of female, especially when it came to Daisy and Luke (when they were in the same scene). I still enjoyed the listen. The story allows you to feel that you can go home and find something more than you could have ever expected from where you left.I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Melissa Foster. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again - but she's completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her - and the man she's never forgotten.
Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he's finally ready to settle down - only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he's never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke's past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined. A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion.
For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy's life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can't manage a future until he puts his past to rest. Taken by Love is part of the Love in Bloom series. While it can be heard as a stand-alone novel, for even more enjoyment, you may want to listen to the entire Love in Bloom series in order. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books.
