In CRUSHING ON LOVE…
Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance.

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

The Bradens are part of the Love in Bloom big family romance collection. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books.

Review
Crushing on Love is the fourth book in the Braden’s of Peaceful Harbor series but each book can be read as a standalone. This book is about Shannon and Steven.
 
Shannon returns to Colorado to see if the sparks between her and Steven are real and can lead to something more. She needs some time away from her family and what better way to do that than to make it a trip worth remembering. Steven enjoys his quiet life in Colorado and doesn’t want just a fling. He is into Shannon but knows she will be leaving soon.
 
I thought Shannon and Steven were perfect for each other and I loved how they had sweet nicknames for the other. They just seemed to fit and I wanted things to work out so badly between them. Melissa Foster has a way of telling a story that just comes together so perfectly and she has done that once again with Crushing on Love. Great series and I hope there is more to come!
Rating: 5 stars
