My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lovers at heart is #4 of the Love in Bloom series and #1 of the Bradens. These books all have links through cousins and marriages. With the clever use of large families there are plenty of storyline potentials. It’s a hot romance style offering escapism to a place of hot rugged alpha men and women equally beautiful and in need of loving.
Treat Braden is 37 and a successful businessman who owns a string of resorts. Oldest son of Hal Braden, he feels the responsibility of looking out for his brothers and sister, but he’s always felt the drive to prove himself as a success. When his mother died when he was just 11, Treat wanted to take on the care of his siblings and be a replacement for their mother.
The only person to knock his plans off track has been Max Armstrong. The minute he met her, his heart flip-flopped and he couldn’t get her out of his head. When she went off with another man, his jealousy drove his actions, but he couldn’t get her out of his head.
Treat returned home to the sanctuary of family and his father’s ranch, the last person he expected to bump into again was Max and his heart did that flip-flop all over again. Max too was having trouble thinking clearly, Treat had a deep affect on her too. They are drawn together by lust, but both have plenty of issues to work through before they can let their defences down and fully trust in a future together.
If you like a quick read, hot romance with a HEA ending and plenty more characters to fill a series, then these books could be for you.
