The Bradens Series Book One
By: Melissa Foster
Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.
Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.
When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Lovers at Heart is book #4 in the Love in Bloom series by Melissa Foster but can be read as a standalone and in fact as the beginning of the Bradens novels :)
Melissa Foster creates characters that you cannot help but love.
Treat Braden is a businessman with a mission. He buys resorts all over the world, knows his way with women but none of them managed to get under his skin like Max Armstrong.
A few misunderstood words made her turn away and hide from him.
Now he's obsessed with her and highly confused as not one woman made him work so hard for her affections.
Max is a successful woman with a job that makes her satisfied and fullfilled.
She stays away from any kind of relationships and can be seen as withdrawn to the onlookers.
Yet she is very independent, cautious and hard headed.
That's why the fact that the one and only man that Max cannot keep out of her head is the arogant bastard Treat, keeps her on constant alert.
The chemistry between the characters is sizzling hot yet the both of them have trust issues and the tendency to jump to conclusions that threaten to overpower the shaky ground of their relationship.
Overall Lovers at Heart is a well written story that makes the readers look for and want more of this series.
