Crashing into Love Tour Banner 1




Only one woman could hurt ultra-alpha bad boy Jake Braden.

Only one woman can heal him.

Fiona Steele has arrived…


Fiona Steele has a great career, strong friendships, and a loving family. To an outsider, her life appears happy and fulfilling. But the one thing that’s missing is true love, and the only man Fiona wants is the one she can’t have, sinfully handsome and seductively intense Jake Braden—the man whose heart she broke, which she has regretted ever since.

As an LA stuntman, Jake Braden’s at the top of his game. He’s hired for all the best movies, hooks up with the hottest women, and lives an unencumbered lifestyle where his needs come first—and where he doesn’t have to examine his life too closely. Except when he visits his family in his close-knit hometown of Trusty, Colorado, where he spends his time avoiding Fiona—the only woman who knows who he really is.

When Fiona’s best friend is hired to act in Jake’s movie, Fiona jumps at the chance to try to win him back. There’s no denying the white-hot attraction burning between them. With every encounter, Fiona hopes Jake can’t resist falling back into the love they once shared. But her well-orchestrated rendezvous doesn’t go over well with the brooding heartthrob. Living in the fast lane is perfect for a guy who’s buried his emotions so damn deep he’s not sure he can remember how to feel—and he’s not sure he ever wants to.


Fiona Steele  and Jake Braden were high school lovers. Fiona left him and moved on and Jake, now a movie stuntman who lives in LA, has never really recovered or trusted any woman since. He has a playboy lifestyle; his mansion is a 24/7 open house and he is never short of a woman in his bed.

A successful geologist, Fiona has returned to her home town where she knows Jake will be attending a family wedding. She has always regretted the break up, influenced by family issues and her mother. She realises he is the only man she really ever loved and she wants him back. Aided and abetted by friends she sets out to deliberately cross his path.

Although when they meet Jake finds he is still seriously attracted to Fiona, he remembers how painfully it ended all those years ago and he’s very cool towards her. Fiona, however, is determined to make him realise she is sorry and wants him back in her life. When they do eventually get together, however, the tables are turned as Fiona finds herself having to deal with the glitz and glamour of his movie lifestyle and the women who surround him. Women who appear to think although he is with her, he is still fair game.

Melissa Foster has written a hugely enjoyable romantic and passionate love story which shows no matter how far people drift apart, if they are meant to be together, it will happen. Dialogue, description, chemistry between the two lovers is all spot on. A great five star read which will keep you hooked all the way to the last page.
