Elisabeth Nash has spent years dreaming of returning to the small town of Trusty, Colorado, where she spent summers with her favorite aunt. When she inherits her aunt’s farmette, she closes her Los Angeles pet bakery and pampering business, sure that life in Trusty will be as peaceful and as welcoming as she remembers. But being an outsider in the close-knit town proves to be very different from the happy summers she remembers from her childhood—and falling for Trusty’s hot, wealthy, and sinfully irresistible veterinarian, Ross Braden, sends the rumor mill into a frenzy.

Ross Braden learned long ago that gossip spreads faster than weeds in his small hometown, and Ross loves nothing more than his privacy.  For that reason, he doesn’t date women who live in Trusty. But that was before blond, beautiful, and refreshingly honest Elisabeth Nash flew into his vet clinic seeking help for her panicked piglet and turned his comfortable life—and his heart—inside out.

Despite rumors about Elisabeth’s motives toward her aunt’s property, passion brews between Elisabeth and Ross. Every steamy kiss and every sensual touch brings the pair closer together, and when Ross helps Elisabeth try to fit into the town he adores, it makes their bond even stronger. But even Elisabeth’s efforts toward reaching the community, and the love she and Ross so desperately believe in, might not be enough for the protective small town to offer them a future.

Another charming Melissa Foster romance... You know what that means. Yep! Full on zombie mode the following morning. There is something about Melissa's books that suck me in from the very first word and leave me wanting more when I'm done. The moment I finish, I usually go straight to Goodreads and look up the release date for the next book because I just don't want to leave this world. Getting to meet new characters and catching up with old friends... Falling in love all over again... Reading her books are a wonderful way to spend time when I should be sleeping. What I loved the most about Flirting with Love is that the romance between Ross Braden and Elisabeth Nash felt as if it was their first love. And it many ways, it was. Ross has been in relationships before, but he's always been careful to not date anyone from his town. Its not until he meets Elisabeth that he finally feels the urge to settle down like his brothers have done. Elisabeth wants to fall in love. She wants the happily ever after and she finally finds that with Ross. Elisabeth has dreams to move to Trusty and become the successful woman like her aunt once was. When her dreams start to slip away, it is Ross and his family that rally behind her. The trust and the sincerity between Ross and Elisabeth brought out a very innocent romance between two characters that desperately needed it. Two of my favorite scenes were simple and adorable moments, both involving Elisabeth's name. Just taking the moment to give her a nickname makes Elisabeth swoon. And I was right there with her... I must say, though. As sweet and romantic Ross and Elisabeth may have been out of the bedroom, the two still rocked the sheets in the bedroom! 

There are so many beautiful Melissa Foster books that I'm starting to wonder if I need to create a family tree to keep track of all these hunky men and strong women. *grin*
