Releases December 5th
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…
“Love finds you no matter if your ready or not, 5 stars”
Bridgette knows loss. She lost her husband years ago when her son was a baby. Over time she has accepted it and moved on, trying to be the best mother she can be. Bridgette is focused on her business, son, and family, she has no time for a man. She hasn’t felt the desire to even be with one since her husband, which worries her family. She used to be full of life and mischief and now she’s hyper focused. Until Bodhi.
Bodhi only came to Sweetwater to fix up the house he bought for his mother. Thanks to a reliable source pointing him in the direction of the quiet little town he now knows his mother has a place to retire. At first, he sees Bridgette at the bakery, and he’s intrigued. As luck would have it she’s his mothers new neighbour. When he finds out she has a son, thing’s change. Not because he doesn’t like kids but because he lives a complicated life and doesn’t want to hurt Bridgette or her son. But sometimes the best laid plans don’t stick, you can’t stop fate.
I absolutely loved Only for You. I so got where both of them were coming from. Bodhi is private sector military, he never knows when he will be going, how long he will be gone, or if he will come back. I completely got that from where my husband is military. Bodhi and Bridgette knew their time was running out and I know that feeling all too well. I feel that pain before every deployment.
Bridgette tried to be strong so her son didn’t know that anything was wrong and as a parent it's best but it's hard. I’ve been there and done that and reliving it in Only for You made me cry. How Foster described everything they knew was bound to happen was real for me. I hate admitting I cried because I NEVER cry in books, but to me that’s how I knew the book was good!
