Summary

Discover the magic of New York Times best seller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions have fallen in love with the Bradens.

In USA Today best seller Anything for Love...

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.

Fall in love with Beau and Charlotte

Sometimes you can read the first chapter of a book and know you won't be able to put it down. This is one of those books, by chapter 4 I was lost in it. Charlotte and Beau are well suited to each other, neither looking for a relationship. But after a days they know there is something brewing between them. Who can make blow up dolls funny, that would be Melissa. This is a great read, there are so many mentions of other series that blend well in the book, If you are listening to this book be careful where you are listening to it as there are moment that are laugh out loud and you dont really want to explain yourself ha ha ha. It makes you laugh and cry. Well done Melissa this is certainly in my top 5 of the Love in Bloom series.

unexpected love

Charlotte is an erotic romance writer who owns a run down inn. Beau is a contractor who has been commissioned by his cousins to help fix up the inn for Charlotte. These two are scorching, red hot together and both narrators do a great job of portraying them.

Charlotte and Beau

Audiobook Review… Oh My Gosh, the people at the gym I go to must think I am crazy. I laughed out loud so many times while listening to Charlotte and Beau’s story. The narrators made them come to life to me, I loved, I cried, I laughed, and I enjoyed every single syllable that was read to me. Ava Erickson and Zachary Webber are amazing. They used the perfect tones, the perfect cadence, and the right amount of emotion to bring Charlotte and Beau to life. Melissa Foster wrote a book and the narrators knew just how to read it.

eBook Review…I love how consistent Melissa Foster is with her writing. With each book of hers that I read, I find real characters with lives that are believable and friends that are so true to each other. Each book is a new and amazing story with no cliffhangers. The characters from other books in the series make an appearance so we can catch up with what is happening in their lives while meeting new characters that we hope to learn more about in future books.

Anything For Love is the story of Charlotte and Beau. Charlotte lives alone in her family’s mountain inn while Beau is running from his home after losing his high school sweetheart. Beau is a man who loved, lost, and now blames himself. He takes jobs that require traveling just to stay away from his home. When asked by Hal Braden (I love him and his matchmaking) to take a job helping Charlotte with repairs at the inn he jumps at the chance. Charlotte seems oblivious to much that happens around her. She is so wrapped up in her writing that she lives in a fiction world most of the time. Together they work together. Charlotte pushes, pulls, and supports Beau while he tries to find his way back to happiness and Beau forces Charlotte to open her eyes to the world around her.


I am excited for this series to continue. The Braden’s and The Montgomery’s coming together is a set of books is a dream come true. They are perfect together and I cannot wait to see where these two families are headed.

Not one to miss...

Anything for Love is the second book in this series. Beau and Charlotte are perfect for each other. This book had me laughing so hard at times. The story was believable, lighthearted, sweet, and intense, all rolled into one. I absolutely loved it, and I enjoyed listening to the narrator as well. Definitely one not to be missed.

Amazing story

Beau and Charlotte were absolutely wonderful together. Charlotte was so much fun and so full of life you couldn't help but to fall in love with her. Beau was weighed down by guilt and Charlotte was able to help Beau rethink and reevaluate the whole situation.
I loved the audible version of this book. Ava Erickson and Zachary Webber brought this book to life. They did an amazing job. I truly enjoyed listening to Beau and Charlotte's story.

You will laugh your a@@ off.

***Edit To Original Post***
I originally read Anything for Love back in June 2018. I just now listened to the audio version of this book. What an amazing narration was by Ava Erickeson & Zachary Webber. I truly love listening the audio version/ I listen in my car going back and forth to work.
OMG Charlotte! What can I say about her, she had me cracking up with her blow ups and handcuffs. I found myself laughing so many times. Hal had asked Beau if he could go to the Inn to do some repairs. Beau had a hard time moving on from his past. Charlotte and Beau are proof that fairy tales do exist. What a wonderful story. This book is a standalone with a definite HEA. A perfect summer read.

Chickendales!

Love, love, love Beau and Charlotte! Beau agrees to fix damage done by his cousins at Charlotte's Inn but little does he know, she might actually be fixing his heart. Charlotte is such an incredible free-spirit, erotic romance writer. Her "quirks" are what makes Beau fall for her and made me as a reader fall for her and root for the two of them as well. Charlottes perspective on life is refreshing - from Chickendales to dreamscapes and jars she will make you belief on fairy tales. I also loved the appearances by many others of the Braden family - if you are a fan of other Love in Bloom novels you will love the appearances by some of your other Braden family members.

This beautiful story is narrated by Ava Erickson and Zachary Webber. I had some difficulty with the seemingly, to me, change between narrators. It took some time and I was able to get used to the narration by both but would have preferred either just one narrator or having each of them stick to one character.

Beau and Charlotte are quite simply an amazing surprise - to each other and to us as readers.

I love it!!

This is the second book in The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls Series. Charlotte and Beau's story is fun, sexy, and heartwarming. Charlotte, an erotic romance author, is a wonderful character. I love when a story is about a writer, and this one is really great! Beau is handsome, sexy, and protective. They are perfect together. They share a sizzling chemistry. Some scenes are hilarious! Ava Erickson, and Zachary Webber did a fantastic job with the narration. This is definitely one of my favorite stories from this author. I enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it.

WOW!!!! Excellent

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I have listened to many of Melissa Foster's books and they are all great, but this one is one of her best. I really loved Charlotte. What a carefree, creative woman who writes erotic books and Beau who is a lost sole. This was such a great book, So fun. I had to listen from beginning to end without interruption. Awesome!!! The two narrators are two of the best. They brought this story to life. They were perfect for this story. Love It. Can you tell???

Swoony and Sweet

This is definitely a new favorite Melissa Foster story for me. It has the small town setting that I love and this author does so well. Another thing is has that I love is a really quirky heroine in Charlotte.
Charlotte Sterling is an erotic romance novelist living a quiet life in her family’s Colorado inn. Beau Braden is there to do some work at the inn. They are both in their own way dealing with a loss and neither is looking for a relationship.
The story is sweet and swoony. The audiobook narration was great, a ‘credit worthy’ listen.

Great story of personal Growth

This was a great story full of personal growth, Healing, self forgiveness and eye opening for the both Characters. It was a tender but Hot love story that had several laugh out loud funny moments!

I appreciated that both characters had experienced so much heartache that the Author chose not to cause more for them! There were a few instances where the opportunity was present for betrayal and the story could have gone in a totally different direction. I don’t think that at such an emotional time in their lives that either of the MC’s could have handled any trust breaking.
This story was written exactly as they needed it to be!

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! I will definitely be listening to more from this Author!

Romantic.

I really enjoyed this story. It was smooth and well written. There was no major plot twist and crazy exes or bdsm that everyone suddenly feels is necessary in a romance book. Story line was great, which led to a refreshing and very different story and I would definitely recommend it.
