ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 5, 2017
Love only works when your heart is in the right place. Hers could be right next door…
Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.
Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.
But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…
REVIEW: ONLY FOR YOU is the second instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult SUGAR LAKE romance series focusing on the men and women of Sweetwater, New York. This is single mom and florist Bridgette Dalton, and former Special Forces soldier Bodhi Booker’s story line. ONLY FOR YOU can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. We were first introduced to Bridgette in Wild Boys After Dark: Logan. SUGAR LAKE is a spin off, and interconnected with a number of Melissa Foster’s other series.
Told from dual third person perspectives (Bodhi and Bridgette) ONLY FOR YOU follows the building relationship between former Special Forces soldier Bodhi Booker, and single mom/widow/florist Bridgette Dalton. Bodhi Booker doesn’t do relationships but meeting his mother’s future next door neighbor finds our hero in all kinds of trouble as he feels himself pulled into the orbit of single mom Bridgette Dalton, and her five year old son Louie. Only two weeks away from his next ‘military’ training Bodhi struggles with his attraction to Bridgette knowing their time together has a deadline. But the heart wants what the heart wants and Bodhi will soon lose his heart to Bridgette and her five year old son. What ensues is the growing love between Bodhi and Bridgette, and the potential fall out as Bodhi says good bye to the woman he loves.
The relationship between Bodhi and Bridgette is temporary; a mutual decision based on previous loss, and potential heartbreak. Bodhi struggled as he watched his mother lose the man that she loved, and our hero refuses to place Bridgette on the slippery slope of a military man’s wife. The $ex scenes are intimate, seductive and passionate (without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text) as Bodhi and Bridgette will fall in love knowing their will be no happily ever after for either one.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Bridgette’s son Louie, her sisters Piper, Talia, Willow, and Willow’s fiancé Zane (The Real Thing #1), their brother Benjamin, and their parents Roxie and Dan Dalton. WE are introduced to Bodhi’s mother Alisha Booker, his friend Aurelia, his accountant Shira, and Bodhi’s lovable Great Dane Dahlia. Melissa has plans for all of Bridgette’s siblings.
ONLY FOR YOU is an emotional story line. As Bodhi heads to places unknown Bridgette knows she may never again see or speak to the man that she loves therefore kissing him goodbye is probably her last. The premise is wonderful and heart warming; the characters are colorful, energetic and fun; the romance is captivating and sensual. Melissa Foster takes the reader through the ups and downs of a small town romance with big city heart !
