Publisher's Summary

In Dreaming of Love, Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does - with the exception of finding true love. She's watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn't have.

Dae Bray doesn't do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work - until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule - and just about everything else he's ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

everyone deserves a Dae

I've been waiting for Emily's book ever since we meet the Trusty Braden's. I was not disappointed. Dae was such a romantic. He was the dream guy every woman deserves. I guess the only thing I felt was lacking was there was no mention of the Bray/Braden/Remington connection.

BJ's narration is spot on. He's really got a great voice.

Romantic and Swoony

Dreaming of Love is the fifth book in the Braden’s at Trusty series but can definitely be read as a standalone. The story mainly takes place in Tuscany where Emily Braden is vacationing thanks to a gift from her brother.
Emily has loved seeing her brothers find their true loves and soulmates but despairs ever finding that for herself.
The story (and setting) is romantic, swoony and hot, hot, Hot! It also deep and touching as Emily and Dae Bray have to find a middle ground to land on when they are on complete opposite sides of an ideal.

“You’re no longer possibly mine. You’re not even my sure thing,” she whispered. “You’re my everything.”

I love listening to these stories on audiobook and really enjoy this narrator.

Wonderful!

BJ Harrison knocks it out of the park again with his mad narrating skills as Melissa Foster does the same with her writing on this wonderful tale about falling in love in Italy. I love all things Braden, so of course I think Emily is awesome. But Dae, wow, I can't think of a better word for him than DREAMY. Loved the story line, the ease at which these two connected and just knew but how they still faced some dilemmas. I also loved the look into Tuscany, it's culture and the people they get close to while there. And of course I adore Emily and Dae, and the Braden clan.

Great Read

Dreaming of Love was a great read by Melissa Foster. This is book five in The Bradens at Trust, CO series. Emily is a character that I have absolutely fell in love with in the previous Braden books. Emily's in Tuscany trying to forget about how badly she wants to find a love of her own. Dae isn't looking for a relationship but doesn't expect the feelings when he meets Emily. Unfortunately the differences in their jobs may get in the way. I loved this book and can't wait to read more by Melissa Foster.

Expertly written and narrated.

Dreaming of Love is the story of Emily Braden and Dae Bray. Emily is on vacation in Italy and meets Dae who is there for work, at the villa they are staying at. They hit it off and spend time together. Several other stories are within this one, the wishing tree and the MIA son in law of the owners of the villa. I love the way Melissa Foster had weaves them together flawlessly resulting a heartfelt novel. BJ Harrison’s narration accentuates the emotions already described. I highly recommend this audiobook.

Witty and Serious

Melissa penned a hot and delicious story of love in Italy. B. J. Harrison will pull air from your lungs with the narration of it.
Emily Braden is an architect and she travels out of Trusty, Colorado to Tuscany, Italy to get away for a while. Dae Bray travels to Tuscany to demolish a house with a tree growing into it. When they meet passion sizzles, but they have a big problem. Emily wants to preserve the house and Dae was hired to demolish it. Dae did not do flings and Emily was not fling materiel. Would a house and tree come between them? The story will have a powerful effect on you!

Love in Tuscany

Emily Braden is a self-assured and organized business woman who specializes in designing passive homes and buildings. She is the only girl in a family with 5 overprotective brothers so dating has always been a challenge. Her brother gives her a trip to Tuscany as a thank you gift and she is thrilled to visit this beautiful part of Italy. Dae Bray is a demolitons expert with an alpha overprotective nature and is in Tuscany to check out a potential demolition job. He and Emily meet unexpectedly on her first night in Italy and they are both stunned by the attraction they feel for each other.

They spend every minute they can together trying to ignore the big stumbling block of their respective professions... she preserves things and he blows them up. Can they make this relationship work? Thrown into the mix is the issue of the villa he is supposed to check out which is the site of the "house of wishes" which is well known in the region.

I have read this book as well as listened to the audio version and I loved it. The story is engaging and the secondary storyline adds so much to the romance of the book. I like the narrator and I would recommend this book without hesitation.

Steamy

I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook of Dreaming of Love by Melissa Foster. B.J. Harrison was the narrator and he sure knows how to narrate very well. His voices when he gets into character are great. In this audiobook we get to hear the story of Emily Braden and Day Bray whose jobs are totally opposite. She preserves homes and buildings and he demolishes. Their jobs might be polar opposites but their chemistry is totally on point. The meet in Tuscany where Emily is on vacation provided by her brother Wes and he is on business. I love how easy audio books are and how convenient. This audio was another great story by Melissa Foster.

Such a Romantic Story

I was so excited to get Emily's story. I love her. She has a dynamic personality. Then, this book takes place in Tuscany. How romantic! Very quickly, she meets Dae, who is there on business. The chemistry between them is immediate and is sizzling hot. From there, is one of the most romantic stories that I have read by Melissa Foster. Now of course, everything can't go smooth, but it sure is close. I loved the story of the House of Wishes. I could just picture all the women writing their wishes and putting them into the tree. Then, there is B.J. Harrison, the narrator. He is one of the best in the business. His voice is so nice to listen to, no matter what is going on in the story. It is very impressive how you can always tell who is talking, or whose point of view he is reading. Melissa Foster and B.J. Harrison is an awesome combination.

Great book!

I loved this book! The characters have an amazing chemistry from the minute they meet. Emily wants the forever kind of love that her brothers have found and you can tell right from the time they meet she can have that with Dae. If you love the other Braden books you don’t want to miss this one!
