Blog tour, review, & giveaway: Only For You


Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…

Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.

Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.

But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…

My Review:

I’m very excited to be a part of the tour for Melissa Foster’s latest romance, Only For You! This second novel in the Sugar Lake series focuses on Bridgette Dalton and Bodhi Booker and is packed with so many swoon-worthy moments! Bridgette owns the flower shop connected to her sister Willow’s bakery and is a single mom raising her five-year-old son Louie. Bridgette has always put Louie first and tried to create a life of love and stability for Louie since her husband Jerry died when Louie was just a baby. Bodhi lives a life on the edge as a rescuer in secret missions, but is Bridgette’s temporary neighbor since he bought a home for his mother in Sweetwater for her to live after her retirement. Bodhi never does relationships because he can’t promise he’ll make it back from his missions alive, and Bridgette has never brought men into Louie’s life, hoping to save him from the heartbreak of a man going away again.

Bridgette is a fantastic, dynamic character who is so easy to relate to as she juggles the joys and challenges of being a single, working mom. She’s such a fluid character that was smart, funny, beautiful, and caring. Bodhi did not appear to have a sweet or gentle side at all in the first portion of the book. Actually, he was the epitome of a hot, brooding, closed-off loner that you would want to avoid. However, as the novel progresses, Melissa Foster reveals an amazingly caring, romantic, loyal, and loving man that made my heart so happy! As always with Foster’s novels, the supporting characters were also wonderful, but Louie was the cutest thing ever. For a five-year-old character, Louie is so well-developed and steals the spotlight numerous times with his sweet innocence.

Only For You embraces the concept of love and the sacrifices that we will make for those that we love. Themes include dating and relationships when one of both parties have children, as well as, the importance of strength, love, and support within families. My main thoughts after reading are that some things are just meant to be despite walls we build around ourselves. Every once in awhile people are just magnetically drawn to one another despite how hard they may resist the pull, and some have killer chemistry 🙂 Bodhi and Bridgette’s story will definitely not disappoint contemporary romance fans and I promise that you will fall head over heels for both Bodhi and Louie. As per the norm, I have fallen in love with another Melissa Foster and another one of her leading men!

The Real Thing (Sugar Lake Book 1)
Fall in love on the shores of Sugar Lake in the small town of Sweetwater with Willow Dalton and Zane Walker.

This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?

Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.
