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.
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.
You can actually listen to them falling in love.... step by step...minute by minute
His job of blowing things up and her job or protecting them.
You would think they would mix like oil and water, who knew!!!
She wants what all her brothers have and feel that love has eluded her, until Dae comes in her life.
Beautiful story about complete opposites

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Melissa made me feel as though I was on a vacation in Italy with Emily. Emily met Dae her first night in Italy. She there for vacation, he there for work. There was an instant attactrion between them. I loved this story along with the narration of NJ Harrison.
I was so excited when I saw this was about Emily and the fact that the setting is in Tuscany makes it that much better. To be honest I don't would like to know more about Adelina and Serafina.
What a true love story
What a great place to write a love story. Emily and Dae's love story was such a tear jerker. This was one book I couldn't put down. I had to see it through the end. The one part I loved how Catherine stepped in when the brothers were going to rough house or when all their cell phones went off. This was truly a beautiful love story.
Perfectly paced, believable falling in love
Emily is an architect specializing in passive houses, and like many of us, she's been focused on her career for far too long. When her brother gifts her a dream vacation to Tuscany, she finally has a chance to unwind and have a little fun for herself. The scenery is beautiful, but it's the enticing man she meets on her first night there that really makes an impression.
Dae is in Italy on business, visiting to discuss the demolition of an old local building that the locals call the House of Wishes — only he doesn't realize his next job and this local legend are one and the same. For ages, women have visited the house to see the olive tree growing inside and leave a token of their hearts' true desires, and both Dae and Emily are immediately intrigued by it.
The Verdict: After meeting on their first night staying in the same little bed and breakfast, Emily and Dae are instantly attracted to each other but not rushing into anything foolish. However, the more time they spend together, the harder it is to behave, and what's a vacation without a little fun?
Dae is quite the romantic, making sure Emily gets to do all she planned on for her trip, and their connection grows faster and stronger than they ever expected. He's kind and respectful and thrillingly hot, and while he does his best not to rush the physical, there's too much passion to be denied. Emily, too, is entirely loveable. She's smart and successful and has been such a big help to everyone else in her life that it's wonderful to see her getting her own dream come true.
The conflict, of course, is their opposing careers, hers that creates and conserves versus his that destroys. Of course, it's more than just principle, and when they fall hard and fast, it's only natural to question and judge. Through it all, though, is a perfectly paced, believable falling in love, and if you've read the previous books, you'll agree with me that it's about time Emily got her happy ending!
Fortunately, this book is the same fare from Melissa Foster that I've come to rely on. There's friendship and fun, chemistry and passion, and natural conflict and drama — never too much of anything and just enough to keep you turning the pages. And of course, there's a wonderful happily ever after to be had as well, though this one was decidedly different in its promise for even more. As always, I fell in love with the characters and their story, from the small but meaningful moments to the life-changing ones. If you haven't started this series yet, you're missing out on the perfect set of romances.

This book is another brilliant, heartwarming love story of two incredible people. The setting was beautiful and I can't get enough of the characters! Just when I think Melissa Foster has outdone herself, and can't top the last book I read, she WOWS me yet again!!! Need to go reread!!!!
