Pleasant Hill ~ Oak Falls, Book 2

World Literary Press
After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family’s Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue—even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can’t live up to the fictional heroes she creates—until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she’s intrigued by a real man.
Beau lost his first love years ago, and he’s never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn’t count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.
Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They’ve never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible.
While Anything for Love is the second book in The Bradens & Montgomerys - Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls Series by Melissa Foster it can be read as a standalone. I am currently reading this series in order but I have jumped around through the larger series (in which this series falls) Love In Bloom, I love the fact that while each story is somehow loosely interconnected they can each be read as a standalone because they don't have cliffhangers.
In Anything for Love we get Beau and Charlotte's story, these two have had so much loss in their lives its nice that they finally have some happiness. Charlotte is a riot! She is an erotic romance writer and she lives alone in an inn that was owned by her grandfather before his passing. There were a few times her antics had me laughing out loud, especially when it came to acting out sex scenes using her blow up dolls....yes you read that correctly, she has blow up dolls that are anatomically correct and positions them in the way she is thinking of using in a scene to see if it would work (I bet that made you chuckle didn't it). I loved that she was so engrossed in her writing that she lost track of the day. She was who she was take it or leave it and I thought it was great.
Beau, now here is a man that may have only lost one person he loved but he held onto the guilt of her tragic death as if he was the one to cause her accident, which he wasn't. With Charlotte's quirky nature she unknowingly brings Beau out of the funk he has been living in for the last ten years. Something that his family hasn't been able to do, Charlotte has done in just a few short weeks. Beau finds himself wanting to give Charlotte the Fairy Tale she's been wishing for, the kind of love her parent and grandparents had, the type of love that Beau realizes his parents have as well.
It turns out that Beau was Sleeping Beauty and Charlotte was the one that awoken him with her kiss. I loved this sweet and very sexy read. If you haven't read a Melissa Foster book before I suggest you dive into this one, but be warned once your in you'll want more of her work because all of her books are just that good. Happy Reading!!!!
Don't miss the next in series!
