Summary

Librarian Callie Barnes has visions of reading and relaxing - and maybe having a few too many drinks on her girls' weekend away. Her hopes are crushed when her friends pull into a dude ranch instead of a spa, and she refuses to say longer than one night. That is...until she realizes the ranch is owned by sinfully sexy, and dangerously rugged, Wes Braden - the subject of her late-night fantasies.

Fearless rancher Wes Braden thinks he's the luckiest guy on the planet when the sweet, sexy librarian from his hometown shows up at his ranch. Their connection is white-hot, making it impossible for either to ignore their carnal desires. Wes is more than willing to convert sweet Callie from chick lit to a world of erotic romance, but Callie ties sex to love, and Wes avoids commitment like the plague.

Callie is thrust into physically demanding activities that ignite her deepest fears. Luckily, Wes is as tender as he is strong, and he's there every step of the way to help her find her inner strength. With Callie's influence, Wes might even discover that he's been nursing a few fears of his own. Passion pulls Callie and Wes from their safe, comfortable lives into each other's arms, and they're about to find out just how alike they really are.

When her friends book a weekend away she thinks they are off to a spa, horrified she finds herself at Wes's ranch which caters for the more adventurous. Wanting to head back home she has a change of heart and try's to embrace everything that is thrown at her, this makes Wes fall in love with her even more.

Callie and Wes

The librarian and the rancher. Nothing like opposites attracting. This is a fun hot story showing us that people who are supposed to be make it work. The audiobook is well done and I enjoy being able to listen to a Melissa Foster while sewing.

Swoon worthy!

Callie Barnes is the local librarian. Callie believes she is going on a spa getaway with her best friends, when in fact, they are going to a dude ranch, Wes Braden’s dude ranch. They are determined to get Callie to step out of her comfort zone and face a few of her fears. Wes doesn’t realize the group of women he’s taking on an overnight camping trip is Callie and her friends. As Wes helps Callie face her fears and they get to know each other better, the attraction and chemistry they have for one another, heats up. Fated for Love is a wonderful story of love, friendship and finding a HEA.

Sweet, Sexy, and Romantic!

This is the second book in The Bradens at Trusty Series, a sub-series of the amazing Love in Bloom Series. Callie and Wes's story is sweet and beautiful. The storyline is fun, sexy and romantic. Wes is handsome, sexy, caring, and protective. I loved him! She is lovely, sweet, and innocent. They are the perfect match! The friendship in this Series is amazing. B.J. Harrison did a great job with the narration, as always. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, Romancing My Love.

girls weekend turn in to so much more

Callie Barnes was the local librarian. Wes Braden the local hot, sexy, wilderness rancher. They find each other in a library and learn so much more about each other out on the wilderness of the Colorado prairie. Sweet almost innocent Callie finds that she has deep crush on the local rancher, Wes. She begin to learn more about herself on the girls trip experience that she was not expecting. Most of the town could see what was before the two. There were a large host of characters both primary and secondary that captured my attention and have me looking for more from them. B.J. Harrison provided a vocal backdrop for he story which neither added or took away from the story that was being told.

I think I'm in love.

Are they written in the stars or fated to give into their scars? I've said it before, but I'll say it again, I think I'm in love. Callie and Wes ARE my favorite Melissa Foster duo. She's a diva of books. He's a wanderer searching for home. It couldn't be more obvious that sparks were bound to fly. Fated for Love reads like the sweetest serenade. Beneath the backdrop of the mountain terrain, a rugged cowboy and a timid bookworm find the courage to fall in love. Hearts are broken, pride is bruised and emotions run deep, but the climb to ever after, could be the greatest love story ever told.

Sexy, sweet romance

Fated For Love is the second book in the Bradens at Trusty, CO series. It can definitely be read as a standalone. I fell in love with the first book in the series partly because of the awesome small town feel of Trusty, Colorado and I wasn’t sure if I would like this second book a bit less because it takes place outside of the town. But that was not the case at all! I loved Wes and Callie’s story! Callie, a quiet, very unathletic librarian is ‘tricked’ into a weekend at a Dude ranch. But things are looking up when their trip is supervised by her secret crush, Wes Braden. I listened to this story on audiobook on my commute this week and smiled all through the traffic! I can’t wait to listen to more books in this series. -4.5 Stars!-

Sweet & Sexy Romance!

I read this book a few years ago and just recently listened to it on Audiobook. I loved it when I read it but BJ Harrison brings all the characters to life in wonderful and wickedly sexy ways. He's an awesome narrator! I love this story line and how everything happens and even the pace it happens. It was just right for Wes & Callie!!! Wes Braden is the hero of this story or maybe I should say the prince (you'll see why). He is tall, dark and handsome and sexy as the day is long. He just oozes genuine charm and is a really nice guy. I personally adore him!! And Callie, well I just love her too! She is just the sweetest until she is alone with Wes and then she becomes a little sex kitten. I love that contrast about her . She has an amazing group of friends who constantly had me laughing out loud. But let's not forget about Sweets! Love that puppy!! And of course, Wes's family is the best! Which if you've read MF's books about the Bradens, you already know!

Meet Wes Braden--hunky swoon-worthy cowboy!

Oh my! If you aren't already a fan of Melissa Foster--you will be after this book. Whether you have read other stand-alone romances from Melissa and had a brief introduction to Wes, or are just "meeting" him for the first time, his genuine nature and big heart will reel you right in. The reader learns right away that a new librarian has moved to the small town of Trusty, and Wes is suddenly visiting the library more! I loved the narration on the audiobook--the personality of the characters really came through as he described their thoughts and actions.This was a beautiful love story to read, and I loved that the reader is clued in to a few things before the characters figure it out.
