Story of Josh and Riley's Love

This novella features Riley Banks and Josh Braden’s wedding (their love story took place in Friendship on Fire). I listened to the audio book and B.J. Harrison never disappoints! Once again you’re transported into the story and feel like a witness to all that ensues. Although a novella, it’s packed with hilarious moments, zany happenings, heartfelt love and of course their happily ever after.

Being famous fashion designers means you have paparazzi trailing after you all the time, unless of course you have the Braden clan to help make your wedding a reality despite what happens! As in real life, not everything goes according to plan and that’s okay, because being a real couple means you have to learn to roll with the punches as a united unit.

There’s no shortage of family bonding, whether immediate family, cousins or close friends and of course all their children. Papa Hal Braden is one of my all time favorite fictional characters, (although I have to remind myself he’s not real) and his love and wisdom is so beautiful and earnest

The heat and passion comes through loud and clear like in all of Melissa’s books, and you won’t be disappointed with Josh and Riley’s wedding. It’s a quick read or listen and one you’ll be glad you did. Five stars!

Good book!!

I loved this short little story with Josh and Riley as well as the other Bradens. No matter what happened to get them to the alter, I never doubted their determination and love for each other. I liked the strong sense of family throughout the book as well as the return or reference to the characters from many of the other books in the series as well as a few references to characters from other series as well. I liked catching up with the characters from the previous stories in the series as well. The plot was quick for this short story as I had it finished in one sitting and was sorry the story ended. The narration by Mr. Harrison continues to be enthusiastic and enjoyable to listen to. I would recommend this story to others wanting to reconnect with the series.

A Braden Wedding

BJ Harrison is my go-to narrator. I am so excited when I put my headphone on and hear his voice. With each book that he has narrated, I am taken into the book world through his words. The characters come alive, the author’s story comes to life, and I am just lost. Melissa Foster has definitely picked the correct narrator for her Love in Bloom series.



The end was my favorite. I thought I was done listening and then Hal’s voice came on. I just stopped, stood still and listened. He is the head of the family so I knew what he would say would be important. Hal is my 2nd favorite Love in Bloom character, Treat is #1, and I always know that his words are strong, true, and full of love.



The story in Story of Love is Josh and Riley’s wedding. The Braden clan comes to Charlotte’s inn for the wedding and the fun begins. There is laughter, smiles, tears, giggles, and so much more before the wedding festivities can begin. I loved every minute of the preparations. I loved that the girls were together making a cake, having a sleepover, eating brownies, and just enjoying each other. I love that the men were together fixing up the inn, watching the children, and enjoying being together.



This is a novella. It is short, quick, and a great way to catch up to the characters that you may have met in other books in this series.

Wedding chaos

I loved having the opportunity to listen to this book after reading it when it was first released in print. B.J. is a great narrator! Josh and Riley just want their wedding day to go well but mishaps keep jumping in the way. Between the press, and other day before and day of the wedding hiccups, it is definitely not perfect. It is hard to not find comedy each time, even Josh and Riley have to laugh. In typical Braden fasion, they make the most out of even the craziest situations. Through all the chaos they only grow closer to each other and to their families.

HILARIOUS!

I can't tell you how much I laughed at this story. B. J. Harrison narrated it and he was super.
Josh Braden was marrying Riley Banks and they were fashion designers. They had designed a beautiful wedding dress for the wedding. The day before the wedding, two of Josh's little nephews got to the dress and drew designs and stick figures on it. The girls had to make adjustments to the wedding cake because of a huge mistake. Then Riley's friend had sent a batch of brownies for the girls to munch on, then she got a message that the brownies had got mixed up. The brownies they ate had marijuana baked in them and they had eaten them all. Riley had a time with all of the high women. I laughed until I cried at this one!

Great way to catch up with the Bradens

What a great way to catch up than a wedding. We are at Josh and Riley's wedding at the venue his mother and father got married. This also introduces to Charlotte Sterling the owner. There are a few mishaps along the way, that if it was any one else they would of crumbled and cancelled the wedding. Instead its taken as it and makes for a great listen and had me smiling as I listened to BJ Harrison who is a great narrator. A lovely end of the book from Hal.

Best wedding story ever

This is the long awaited wedding of Josh Braden to Riley Banks. Everything that can go wrong does but in hilarious fashion. I would highly recommend this audio to everyone as its funny and romantic. The narrator makes it sound even funnier.
