Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a 12-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns 18. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best damn mother she can be.
The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn't expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off - and steals his every thought thereafter.
When Brianna's perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn't believe in fate and a woman who doesn't believe in true love find happiness in each other's arms forever?

"LOVE LOVE LOVE THE BRADENS!!!"
I'm n love with Hugh Braden. Glad I got to hear his story. Love all the Bradens. Love Layla & Brianna
BJ Harrison is the perfect narrator for this series.
It's a toss up between the scene were he planned the first date planned for Brianna and the surprise production of the play for Layla. I literally swooned.
Yes. Started it Sunday Morning, finished Sunday night.
I cannot wait to for hear the rest of the stories and the Remingtons side. The chapter 1 teaser at the end of this audiobook have be salavating to know about Dex. Can't wait for the rest of the stories in the series. I'm on pins and needles for the next audiobook. Please don't make me wait too long.
This was a great story that I enjoyed both when I read it as well as when I listened to it. I enjoyed the love at first sight story where the characters worked through their insecurities, fears and issues with single parenting while finding love. I enjoyed the smooth, clear narration as I listened to this story and enjoyed the new characters that were introduced while being able to keep track of the characters from previous stories in this series. I would recommend this book to others.
"Wow. Hugh and Brianna - Braden's 6"
I'm running out of new things to say about Melissa Foster's audiobooks of the Braden's. Each one gets better and better and I fall more and more in love with the Braden family. I just love how she keeps the story going and includes just enough about previous couples. Hearts at Play is the baby Braden's story and he doesn't disappoint. Hugh and Brianna are perfect for each other. I hope Cat gets a book one day! She is a great secondary character and deserves a book of her own. Hint hint...
I'm glad we get a romance book without all the drama that other authors put in books, Thankfully Melissa doesn't do that. So on to BJ Harrison and his narrating of this fantastic story. As always he has outdone himself and I simply love his voice and even more for Layla, I'm not sure if it's meant or not but some of his words gives Layla a lisps and I love it. His voice changes for all the characters and it's good but His narrating of Layla and Hal are my favorite and I don't think he will be able to do any others as good, but If he does I will be the first to praise him for it. I don't have enough words to say how much I love this one. I highly recommend Hearts at Play in book and audio, you will love it, both are fantastic. Thanks Melissa.
"sweet and hot"
BJ Harrison did a great job narrating this book. Another amazing book by Melissa Foster. The whole series is great. I fall in love with the characters in each book.
This book is about Hugh Braden and Brianna Heart. Hugh is a Capital Series Grand Prix racer. He is set up on a blind date. He isn't happy about but he is doing it for his best friend. Last thing he expected was to be attracted to the beautiful bartender. Brianna is a single mother working 2 jobs and being the best mother she can be to her 6 year old Layla. She has a 12 year plan and has sworn off relationships until her daughter is 18. Brianna's world is turned upside down by Hugh. This is a true love story with a prince and some steamy sex. Thank you Melissa for a great book.
"Hugh won me over"
In all the books in this series Hugh has been portrayed as a fast and hard man. Hearts at Play show how he is a romantic, sexy (as if there was any doubt, he is a Braden), compassionate, and incredible man. I always thought Treat, from Book 4 Lovers at Heart, was my crush, but very quickly into Hearts at Play Hugh took over that spot. He won me over but not only dating and wooing Brianna, but he wooed Layla too. He included her in their outings, thought about her when he was making plans with Brianna, and just made her feel like she was truly a princess. The thoughtfulness and care he took with Brianna and all her insecurities made him the most amazing man I have ever read about.
Brianna is the type of mom everyone needs. Her every thought was concerning Layla and how her actions would affect her. I had tears in my eyes many times while reading her thoughts on Layla and her concerns. Watching her struggle with her feelings towards Hugh and seeing her overcome her fears showed how strong of a woman and mother she truly is. Kat, her best friend, and her mother, Jean, had to shake her a few times and get her to open her eyes to how amazing Hugh is, but that is what best friends and mother’s are for, right?!
I cannot end this review without mentioning the bombshell that Max and Treat dropped at the end of the book. I LOVE IT!
I am sure I have said this in all my other reviews for this series, but OH MY…. This is my favorite book so far. I cannot wait to see what the rest of this series will bring me. Will a Remington replace Hugh as my crush? If you have not checked out this series you are seriously missing out on some HOTNESS. This book, as with the others, can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend you check out the entire series.
"What a family!!!!!"
This was the last in the Bradens family story. I like this last one the least, but it was still good.
I liked Hugh and the little girl
What a performer! I looked for other books he narrated. I am glad you can do that on Audible! A beautiful voice. Calm, and intense. A great combo!
You have to listen to the entire family's story. It was fantastic. Start from the beginning ladies! This series made my friend Tina join Audible!
"Playboy meets his match"
Hugh Braden, playbook racing car driver meets Brianna Heart, single mother, by chance. They end up with sparks flying between them and fall for one another but Brianna is cautious because of her 6year old daughter Layla. Beautiful story and wonderfully narrated. I love that B.J. manages to keep the same voices for each character as the Love in Bloom series continues. Wonderful book by Melissa and amazingly brought to life by B.J. Harrison.
