Publisher's Summary

The Bradens are a series of sexy standalone romances. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to listeners who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.

Fall in love with Ty Braden, a world-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer. He's about to take on his toughest assignment yet - winning the heart of the one that got away.

Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn't imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she'd worked so hard to create.

Months later, fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.

An incredible love.

First let me say I do love Melissa Foster books along with the narration of BJ Harrison. I think the current one is always the best until I listen to the next. But this book featuring Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell is incredible. In my opinion Melissa's strong suit is her character development and this book is no different. This story is filled with fate, love and life changing events. You will experience the love of the entire Ace Braden Family. During the course of reading this tears were trickling down my face without my knowledge or permission. Anyone would want the kind of love Ty has for Aiyla. BJ Harrison’s narration let the compassion and emotion shine through. Kudos to Melissa Foster. A true 10 star book.

Great Audiobook

Thrill of Love is a great audiobook. B.J. Harrison was the narrator and he does a terrific job changing his voices to get into character. This is the story of Ty Braden, a mountain climber and photographer, and Aiyla Bell, photographer for her coffee table books/ski instructor/hiking guide. Ty and Aiyla had previously met in Saint-luc for 5 incredible days. Ty asked Aiyla to travel with him after the 5 days and see where it would take him but Aiyla turned him down because she knew of his reputation and she was just starting her business. She told Ty to leave it to fate and if fate brings them together then so be it. They promised each other not to look each other up and not exchange numbers. Well i guess fate wanted them together because they find each other again and Ty promises never to let her get away again. Pure magical. I could not stop reading. They share such great chemistry that steam is literally radiating from them. I enjoyed their story very much.

Amazing Bradens

When listening to a book rather than reading it I find that I can let the words I am hearing soak into me. I hear tones, feelings, and emotions that I missed while reading the book. I catch phrases, sentences, and thoughts that I may have skimmed over while reading. While listening to Thrill of Love I decided that I need a Braden playground and that Aiyla is a very lucky girl to have one to herself. Ty is also lucky to have let fate take control and trust that he would find the love of his life after leaving her behind. BJ Harrison is phenomenal. He is a narrator that knows how to use his voice to pull the listener in and keep them invested in the story.


Grab your Kleenex. I am not sure that I have ever cried in sadness during one of Melissa Foster’s Love in Bloom series books. Yet with Ty and Aiyla’s story, I full out had tears rolling down my cheeks. Do not get me wrong, this is a wonderful book with amazing characters.

Thrill of Love is a story of second chances and believing in fate. Ty Braden, sigh… love those Braden men… meets the woman of his dreams but his reputation gets in the way of their relationship. Promises of not to chase Aiyla down leave it up to fate to bring them back together. Of course, in true Melissa Foster style fate steps in and brings them back together. It is obvious from the beginning that something is off with Aiyla and she is fighting to push through her pain. I love that Ty doesn’t let her just put her pain aside and makes her see his doctor friend, Speed, to find out what is happening. Then when they find out what they are dealing with there is never a doubt that together they can conquer all things. Love wins out, as it should.

The Braden creed of Family knows no boundaries is proven over and over with these strong, proud, alpha Braden men. Ty Braden is a testament that being a Braden is a way of life, one that must be lived up to, respected, and loved.

Emotional and amazing

This is an amazing book! One of the most emotional books I’ve read by Melissa, but I absolutely adored it! I did see what was going to happen almost immediately, but Melissa told the story with such grace that I couldn’t put the book down until I finished. The audiobook version is great also. The narrator is so easy to listen to and makes the characters come alive.

Perfect

I just knew ty would find a strong willed, brave, outdoorsy girl and Aiyla didn’t disappoint. The book did get a little dark but following the Braden’s as they all help ty and Aiyla through was hart warming.

destiny is destiny

Holy cow this was an amazing book, utterly, wholeheartedly amazeballs. It's not often I laugh, cry, get angry and fall in love all in the same story but here is the masterpiece that truly delivers all the feals!!! This book had momentum and it just kept building and building I couldn't put it down. BJ Harrison did an eloquent job on portraying not only the characters but expressing each genuine emotion, expression, and tone in the whole book. It was seamless, and often you forget it's one person narrating the story. There's so much to say about this book, the competitive streak between Ty and Aiyla, the perseverance they show when life is life, it's amazing and so realistic. This is a book has so much to offer, I cannot tell the plot without giving it away it's soooo good. A heartwarming and heartwrenching story all in one, just in time for the holiday season...I mean it could be a Hallmark movie...I'm just saying it's sooo damn good...don't miss out.

Wonderful story

Thrill of Love was a FANTASIC book! I've been anticipating Ty Braden's book for a while, but I never imagined it like this. Ty Braden is a mountain climber and nature photographer. Ty has no intentions on settling down, he doesn't even believe in second dates, that is until he meets Aiyla Bell. Ty meets Aiyla in Saint-Luc where she was a ski instructor and fellow photographer. He was instantly taken by her and wants her to follow him on his next assignment. After months of hoping he will run into Aiyla they finally meet up with each other at an event in Colorado. The chemistry they shared in Saint-Luc is still there and it takes Ty no time to realize that she is "the one" for him. Ty is bound and determined that he wont leave Aiyla walk away from him again, even when tragedy turns their lives up side down. I loved how fiercly Ty loves Aiyla and how his alpha side came out when he was protecting her and when his soft nurturing side was there for her when she needed it. The Braden's had me literally sobbing when they rallied around Aiyla and supported her and Ty. Thrill of Love tugged at my heartstrins several times. I'm so glad we got to see Ty be the man we all knew he really was. I absolutely LOVED this book!
B.J. Harrison is wonderful to listen to. I cried when reading this book and cried even harder listening to it. What a great narrator.

Amazing

Melissa is truly an amazing story teller. You get lost from the real world. Ayla and Ty went their separate ways after meeting and spending only 5 days together. Ayla said if it was meant to be fate would bring them back together. Just when you say to yourself you are not going to cry, you do. Tissues are a must when reading this book. If I could give this story more then 5 stars I totally would.

**Review Edit***
Not only did I read Thrill of Love when it first came out, I just recently listened to the audio book. I love listening to the narration of BJ Harrison. BJ is an amazing storyteller. I listen in my car going back and forth to work, it makes traffic bearable.

Ty and Aiyla

Ty Braden is a thrill seeker, photographer (I’m talking National Geographic here), and quite the lady’s man, if his reputation is accurate. He never thought of settling down with one woman until he met Aiyla Bell. She is an adventurer, and she’s also a photographer (of older faces around the world). They spent five amazing days together in Saint Luc, but agreed to let fate decide if they would meet again. Fate plays a big part in this story. Ty and Aiyla do meet again, and as any good romance novel dictates, they fall in love. But that’s not all there is to this story. In fact, that’s pretty much the beginning. All it takes is one life changing event…

Melissa Foster has written another wonderful, hot, heart-wrenching, love filled story that will make you believe in fate and the forever kind of love that seems so rare these days. When you read this story, be prepared to feel all the feels, cry the tears, laugh and love right along with the Bradens. This story runs so much deeper than most. Grab it and enjoy the ride!

B.J. Harrison narrates the audio version of this story so well. His voice and inflections so clearly bring this story to life. My imagination was pretty good when reading the book, but hearing someone else read it put a whole new spin on the story for me. Such a good one!

The decision

I have read this book, but when it came out on audible I was excited to listen to it. This is one of my absolute favorites. And with BJ Harrison narrating it, it was even more emotional.

This book touched my heart and soul in so many ways. And it touched close to home.

Ty, and Aiyla were both photographers, and Ty was a mountain climber and she was a skier. They had met and fell in love in St. Luc. But when it came time for them to leave Ty wanted her to go with him. But she had worked hard for career, and they had parted ways.

5 days later Ty, and Aiyla met up again by chance in the Colorado Mountains. And there love for each other picked up where it left off.

But during there 5 day wilderness event Aiyla kept having terrible leg pains. She kept thinking it was a pulled muscle, but she kept on going. Kept trying to hide how bad the pain really was. But Ty was keeping a close eye on her. Towards the end of one of the hikes, Aiyla became much worse.

I want to tell you so much about this book, but I want you to hear so badly and not spoil it for you.

Aiyla had to make the most emotional decision of her life, and it was heart wrenching.

This is the best story of all times. This book will touch you in so many ways. It will pull at your heart strings. It will make you want to hug them both, and it will make you smile and laugh at the end. I was on a roller coaster of emotions.

This book has touched my heart so much, and for so many reasons.

Bravo Melissa foster for the best book ever. And thank you for the best story of my life.

Buy this book guys. You will never regret it. And have Kleenex on hand.
