I just love that Melissa can continue this series in multiple sub-series that all intertwine and keep the stories going! Picking up where the last book ends, we find that Brindle is pregnant and feeling unsure of her feelings towards Trace after their longtime relationship and how her life is going to change. After taking a longer than anticipated vacation to sort through everything, she arrives back home ready to talk to the father of the baby, Trace. What she doesn’t expect is that he assumes and accuses Brindle of being pregnant with someone else’s baby, taking all those feelings she sorted through moot point. The bulk of the book’s storyline is the two sorting through their feelings while also preparing for the birth of their child. Overall it was a really cute book, especially finally seeing the two of them end up together and happy after the back and forth for so long! Love this series, love this author and can’t wait for the next installment!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Always happy when a new Melissa Foster book comes out! I knew that Brindle and Trace was going to be a volatile couple and they didn’t disappoint! My emotions were all over the place right along with Brindle’s hormonal mood swings! I’m never disappointed in a when a Braden or Montgomery is involved in the story!
If you have been waiting for Brindle and Trace’s story you will NOT be disappointed. The storyline was not what I expected for the two of them so I thoroughly enjoyed the twists, turns, and revelations regarding their on again, off again relationship. It really was a true romance. Who would of guessed that the tough cowboy would have such a beautiful heart. Melissa Foster’s characters are always exceptional and she has outdone herself with this emotional read.
I freaking love Brindle and Trace. This is probably one of my more favorite couples in the Love in Bloom world (at least, the ones that I have read). They've had a lot of fights and miscommunications over the years, and they weren't even officially together. But because of Brindle being pregnant, they realize that things need to change, and they need to work together. Trace has always gone with what Brindle wanted in a no-strings attached thing, but not anymore. He wants it all with her, and she realizes she wants it all with him. It just took a long trip to Paris to realize it. I loved the character growth, and the growth in their relationship. They both made strides towards being better and more responsible people. Since they've been “together” for so long, the community supports them too, in awesome ways. It'll make you want your own Oak Falls to call home.

Another great book in this series! We have read about Trace and Brindle in many books about there on again off again relationship. But now it’s their story, and all truths come to light. Their love is full of passions, but they must overcome their stubbornness. When Brindle returns from “finding herself”, they meet their first test. But Trace won’t let her slip away and remains faithful to loving her. And they work on their communications and how to be a real couple. Plenty of steamy scenes, hot cowboys and other characters that will round out the story! A must read in this series for sure!!

OMG! Trace and Brindle’s story...FINALLY! I absolutely loved this book. Trace and Brindle have so much history and I love how Melissa told their story. You get to find out the reason behind why their relationship is the way it is. You get to see a different side to their personalities and their relationship. A definite read!
Brindle is a schoolteacher and wild and independent. Trace is a rancher and has been in an off again/ on again relationship with Brindle for years. She goes to Paris for six weeks and returns pregnant. Now at first she gives Trace the impression the baby isn’t his but when she tells him, he’s excited. They decide to start over and learn to communicate better. Brindle is rash and always ready for a good time. Trace has loved her forever but was afraid to tell her, afraid she’d find someone else. He let her believe he was happy with their friends with benefits arrangement yet he only wants Brindle.
Excellent story with fighting and make up sex. Hilarious at the end. Can’t wait for the rest of the Montgomery’s and Jericho’s stories.
