After months of caring for her terminally ill mother, Rebecca Rivera is left all alone in a world she doesn’t trust—but she’s determined not to let her mother’s death define her. Losing her job, having to pummel some jerk for being too handsy, and living in her car are just temporary setbacks to an otherwise solid plan in finding her footing. Full of pride and used to being in control of her life, she’s certain she can make it on her own. The last thing Rebecca needs is a man to fix her troubles—even if that man is strikingly handsome, wealthy, and charismatic Pierce Braden.
Pierce is a powerful real estate investor on the verge of a major acquisition. As the eldest of six siblings raised by a single mother, he’s spent his life protecting those he loves. He’s used to being in charge and making things right, and although he’d give his life for his family, he treats the women he dates as expendable—until he meets sexy and stubborn Rebecca Rivera, a woman who is as strong as she is vulnerable.
Passion ignites between them, and the two share their most intimate thoughts and desires. It doesn’t take long for Pierce to realize that Rebecca is as determined not to be saved as he is to find a way into her heart. As their love grows, Rebecca must face fears she didn’t even realize she had—and Pierce must learn the hard truth that sometimes less really is more. Is the power of true love enough for Rebecca and Pierce to learn to give up control and allow their hearts to take over?
Love in Bloom is well written series, telling heart warming love stories of big families and their friends. Stories that make you feel good, and makes you want to fall in love all over again.
With Romancing my Love there's a typical romance book setting, with the rich CEO / owner of the resort and waitress down on her luck in life.
Pierce is 100% Braden; tall, dark, handsome, rich player. Until he meets Rebecca and falls instantly in love. He is loving, caring, and passionate man, who wants to give his all to the relationship, protect and provide to the one he loves.
Rebecca is in the weakest and most vulnerable place in her life. She has lost everything in life, and to fight back, she holds on to her pride with stubborn hold, because it is all, she thinks, she has left in this life.
It is a sweet, steamy, tale of insta-love, trust, acceptance, and compromise. Pierce and Rebecca find their happily ever after with very little turbulence. Rebecca's grieving for her mother was touching, her struggles of pride and compromise trying. There wasn't that much drama, that wasn't created by Rebecca's stubbornness and pride. Pierce's support to her, being her cornerstone despite her resistance, was admirable.
It is a light, feel good love story, where you get to spend some time with the lovely Braden family, three spoons for Pierce and Rebecca's story.
