Blog Tour, Book Review & Giveaway | Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster


After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.

Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.

Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?

ROMANCING MY LOVE is the newest addition to the BRADEN series by New York Times & USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Melissa Foster. This contemporary romance series features alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They’re flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable to readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women’s fiction.

My Review

I don’t want to save you, Rebecca. But I get the feeling that we were supposed to come together, and I think maybe you were supposed to save me.
I think Rebecca is one of the strongest and most prideful women I have ever met in the Bradens series. She took care of her terminally ill mother all by herself, sacrificed her life to be with her mother during her last hours, and the moment her mother passed away, she continued on her own. She didn’t like to ask for anyone’s help, even though she badly needs it. According to her, just a temporary setback, and soon she’d be on her feet. The last thing she needs is a man to get pity on her and fix all her troubles.

Then here comes Pierce Braden – sexy, rich, and irresistible and a complete danger to her heart.

The Braden men: “They play hard, but they love hard, too.”

He’s in the middle of a major acquisition. He was the eldest of the six siblings raised by a single mother and he spent his life taking care of those he love. So when he meets Rebecca, he couldn’t stop his instinct to help her. But stubborn and independent Rebecca wouldn’t let him.

Everyone, even the strongest people need help. It is not a weakness to ask for one. Perhaps Rebecca needs to be reminded of that. She’s a strong girl who have been through the worst, and all Pierce wanted to do was to help her, and take care of her for once. I had a love-hate relationship with Rebecca here. While I admire her strength, her stubbornness was making me frustrated. I wanted her to tell him the whole truth and be totally honest. Hell, this man was giving her his heart, and he was offering her the world.
As for Pierce – another Braden man to fall in love with. He might be rich, but he was down to earth, and the best thing is – he loves his family and considers those who work for him family too. He was used to taking care of everyone, Rebecca caught him off-guard when she wouldn’t accept any of his help.

It took a while for this two to finally reach an impasse. I was just glad Pierce had given her the space she needed to sort things out, it was hard for him, but she needed it. For someone who was used to giving, loving someone who wasn’t used in taking needed a good compromise.  

Just like any other Melissa Foster novel, I enjoyed reading Romancing My Love. It’s a great love story with interesting characters you’ll come to love. Another Braden man to swoon for, and another woman to admire.

It’s romantic, it’s sweet, it’s sexy and it feels like a fairytale with two stubborn, but completely loveable characters to pin for.
