Only for You by Melissa Foster

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…

After losing her husband five years ago, Bridgette Dalton is back home in Sweetwater with her son, making a life with her family close. When a handsome man shows up in town and ends up next door to Bridgette, she can't help noticing him and the flutter her heart makes when he is near her.

Bodhi Booker is in Sweetwater to work on the house he bought for his mother to retire in. Just a few weeks and she can move in and he will back on his way to another rescue mission. It's what he does and one of the main reasons he doesn't do relationships. When he notices his sexy, beautiful neighbor, he is drawn to her and her precious son.

When it seems that Bodhi and Bridgette can't stay away from each other any longer, they decide to make the most of the time they have with each other without the promise of forever. But with every minute they spend together, will they be able to let go when the time comes?

I love Melissa Foster and I knew going in that this one would tear me up and yes, it did. I was laughing one minute and crying like a baby the next. But believe me, the story is perfect and could not have been any better. I can't wait to see which sibling’s story is going to be next.

4.5 stars of passion and friendship

This is the second in the series, and is just as fabulous as the last one. This time it is Willow's widowed sister, Bridgette, who finds love. The other sisters (and brother Ben) are always around, and there are some strong hints as to future storylines – which always makes me happy. And once again, their mother, Roxie, is mixing love potions and taking the credit!

New neighbours, Bodhi and Bridgette find each other utterly irresistible, but widowed Bridgette looks after her son and her floristry shop. There is no time for freshly cooked meals, forget hot men. Luckily, she soon forgets this and we get an absolutely delicious, romantic, and very sweet story. Louis, her son, and Dahlia, Bodhi's dog, are so central to the story, because these two are faithful, caring, and loyal to a fault. They agree to just live for now, both knowing how the future can fall apart, but wow, their now is perfection.

I love that we know the story from both sides, how we can see their behaviour towards each other develop so naturally, and that they are so oblivious of others. I also adore her openness with her sisters, it is so funny and refreshing. I laughed and gasped and hoped, and as always, Ms. Foster did not let me down.

Roll on book #3, please!

I really enjoyed this book, the way it was written and how two people who clearly didn't want to fall in love did just that.

Bridgette wants the world to think that she can do it all, especially her parents. Raising her son, owning a flower shop, and getting by with the help of her family, she thinks she does a pretty good job. But the nights get lonely and when Bohdi Booker moves in next door, her imagination runs wild. She doesn't have time for a relationship, but someone to help her scratch the itch now and then wouldn't be so bad.

Bohdi is in town remodeling the house he bought for his mother. He notices the woman next door, but he doesn't do relationships, and definitely stays away from women with children. He is focused on saving others, on reuniting families, so that no other child has to experience the loss of a parent like he had. But there is something about Bridgette that calls to him.

The feelings expressed by Bridgette and Bohdi are so heartfelt and real, it was as if they’re my next door neighbors and I was anxious as they were to see how all this played out.
