Trixie Jericho is on a mission to start her own miniature horse business. She’s sick of being told her idea is cute and wants nothing more than to be taken seriously. When rancher and sought-after freestyle horse trainer Nick Braden offers an opportunity she can’t refuse, Trixie jumps on it. The problem is, she also wants to jump on him, but the bullheaded, big-muscled, motorcycle-riding cowboy doesn't mix business with pleasure. Little does he know, Trixie has never backed down from a challenge, especially one she wants more than her next breath. Saddle up, big boy, because this boot-stompin’, risk-taking, Daisy Duke-wearing cowgirl isn’t afraid to play dirty.

This book was beyond exceptional. I’ve been waiting for Trixie’s story and it was so worth the wait. Total page turner and can’t put down read. There is so much love and chemistry between these two characters you can practically feel it jumping off the page. Trixie grew up being the only girl with a house full of brothers. She loves them and would do anything for them, but she also wishes they would support her where she wants the support most. Trixie wants to open her own business. A miniature horse therapy business. All she is looking for is support from her brothers in her new endeavor. Nick is a rancher, and the long-time crush of Trixie’s. These two are good friends and Trixie often stays at Nick’s house when she’s in town. Nick likes his privacy. He lives alone with his dogs and his ranch animals. He doesn’t invite people over and prefers the quiet, except for when Trixie is in town. He loves having Trixie staying with him at his place, as he has had a crush on her since the 1st day he laid eyes on her. So, when Trixie plans to start her new business and needs help, Nick is first to jump at being the person to help and support her. Nick and Trixie decide that Trixie is going to stay in Nick’s house for a month while she does the leg work to start her business. Will a month long stay with the hot Nick Braden, will business be all that goes on on Nick’s ranch? Or will Trixie or Nick finally tell the other of they’re feelings for the other? There’s so much I want to say but I will only leave you with the above description as I don’t want to spoil it for you. You will not be disappointed. This is a must read!

We know the Jericho kids. If you have read any of the previous books, we have ran into them and know that they are hard working, big hearted, strong, independent and stubborn (fairly standard for a lot of Melissa’s characters!) Trixie is no exception. She is the only girl to her brothers, and daddy’s little girl, but that doesn’t stop her from being sweet, sexy, determined, and just as stubborn. The Braden men are known for the same thing and Nick is no exception either. He is private, quiet, hardworking, and just has stubborn. Trixie and Nick have an amazing friendship that they have had for years and while everyone else can see what is right in front of them, Trixie and Nick can’t! Trixie has known since she first met Nick many, many years ago, but Nick refused to see it and still does. (Regardless of it trying to smack him in the face!) Their story is so much fun to follow! Trixie’s business is amazing and the way Nick helps her… the near missed opportunity… Trixie’s loving, challenging nature… Nick’s big, romantic heart… literally swoon-worthy! I loved this book so much! Their story was so special and full of love. Best of all, if you have not read a Melissa Foster romance – ever – you won’t be missing out on anything! This absolutely can be read as a stand alone, but I am telling you; once you read this one, you will find yourself coming back for more!

I had the amazing pleasure of listening to the audiobook of HOT FOR LOVE by Melissa Foster and let me tell you, I could feel the heat coming off the pages. It was a great story and I could not stop listening to the whole thing. The narrators Aiden Snow and Savannah Peachwood were perfect in telling the story. I could picture every scene in my head vividly. This story is about Nick Braden and Trixie Jericho and these two were made for each other. Trixie wants to start her own miniature horse farm and and the only person who doesnt think her ideas are cute or not serious is Nick. He is the first one to jump in with both feet to help her. They both care for each other but Nick has felt pain before and doesnt really want anything serious. But Trixie is the one to break through his issues and help him see that loving someone is a good thing. Nick is just the man Trixie needs to satisfy every need she has. This audiobook is so good. Melissa Foster did a great job writing their story.
