WILD CRAZY HEARTS is the fourth instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult BRADENS AND MONTGOMERYS: Pleasant Hill-Oak Falls erotic, romance series- a part of the author’s LOVE IN BLOOM series. This is twenty-five year old, high school teacher Brindle Montgomery, and rancher Trace Jericho’s story line WILD CRAZY HEARTS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Brindle and Trace) WILD CRAZY HEARTS focuses on the struggling relationship between childhood sweethearts, twenty-five year old, high school teacher Brindle Montgomery, and rancher Trace Jericho. Brindle and Trace have been best friends, soulmates and lovers most of their adult lives but Brindle struggled with their on again, off again love affair so in an attempt to discover what it is she wants from life, Brindle heads to Paris alone, only to return pregnant and scared. What ensues is the rebuilding relationship and love between Brindle and Trace, as they navigate the ups and downs of pregnancy and more. WILD CRAZY HEARTS is a story of family, friendship, secrets and lies. Brindle struggles with her burgeoning news, news that has everyone jumping to conclusions, condemnation, or hoping for more information. Trace has never stopped loving Brindle Montgomery, and her surprising revelations throw our hero off kilter, as well as tipping his well-ordered life into overdrive, as he looks towards the future with the woman he loves. Regardless of Brindle’s announcement and surprise Trace is the man willing to step up and offer our heroine a happily ever after. The relationship between Trace and Brindle is a back and forth, up and down, exhaustive affair between two people who have loved one another for most of their lives. With no commitment towards the future, Brindle takes off to Paris in an attempt to reconsider her options including the love for our story line hero. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and energetic secondary and supporting characters including the Montgomery and Jericho siblings, cousins, family and friends. The fast paced premise is entertaining and welcoming; the romance is fated, spicy and passionate; the characters are familiar, real, flirty and sassy. Melissa Foster invites the reader into her decadent and sexy world of the Bradens and Montgomerys.

This was a wonderfully romantic book. These two have been in love with each other since early teenage years. Brindle Montgomery and Trace Jericho are the ultimate “it” couple in their small town. Brindle is a 25 year old woman that loves to party at the creek, dancing on Tuesdays at the local bar on Girls’ Night Out and being with Trace. She is an English teacher at the local high school but she has problems with communicating with Trace though. Trace for his part is a 28 year old cowboy that didn’t go to college as he didn’t want to be away from Brindle or the ranch for long. He now helps to run the family ranch with another brother and sister due to his father’s health. Trace loves his monthly early morning horse riding with his brothers and loves his Mustang (his pet name for Brindle). Brindle returns to Oak Falls after an extended stay in Paris, France. She is pregnant and she goes to the Jerichos’ barn bash to tell her family and Trace. Unfortunately Trace jumps to the wrong conclusions as to the paternity and the book really starts with glimpse into their relationship. I adored how these two get over the misunderstanding and how they work on their relationship. It was a refreshing change to see the continued growth of these two and the lengths they went to to work on the relationship and themselves. While this is a part of a series, you don’t have to read in order to comprehend this story. Also it is a sexy read. I highly recommend this to anyone over the age of 18.

I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook of Wild, Crazy Hearts by Melissa Foster. It caught my attention from the very beginning and I was hooked. The narrators Savannah Peachwood and Brian Pallino did an amazing job narrating their story. I felt transported into their story and could picture every scene in my head. Brindle Montgomery and Trace Jericho have a long and steamy relationship. Brindle is confused in her head and wants to see if their is more to future besides steamy bedroom trysts so she decides to go to Paris for a while to step away and see how she really feels about Trace. Once in Paris she realizes she is pregnant by Trace and now has to process this and decides to stay in Paris a little while longer. Once she goes back home, she needs to tell Trace about the baby and see how he reacts but things gets fumbled and she lies and says it's someone else's. Trace is hurt but later Brindle tells him the truth and they can finally come to terms with the pregnancy and realize they really do love each other in more ways than one. I really loved listening to their story very much.
