Summary

Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a 12-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns 18. That means swearing off relationships and the drama that goes along with them, working two jobs, and being the best damn mother she can be.
The last thing Capital Series Grand Prix racer Hugh Braden wants after dating media-hungry leggy models and money-hungry fan girls is a blind date. But how could he turn down a favor to one of his best friends? Hugh expected the date to go poorly, but he didn't expect to be intensely attracted to the beautiful brown-eyed bartender who completely blows him off - and steals his every thought thereafter.
When Brianna's perfectly orchestrated life turns upside down, Hugh is there to help, softening the turmoil, and maybe even rescuing her heart from the lonely place where it has been hiding. Can a man who doesn't believe in fate and a woman who doesn't believe in true love find happiness in each other's arms forever?

No frogs to kiss

Would you consider the audio edition of Hearts at Play to be better than the print version?

They are the same although you can get a bit more emotional with the audi version

What did you like best about this story?

It was like an adult version of Cinderella, Brianna a single mother of a 6 year old meets Hugh who likes to thrill seek. I liked the interaction of Hugh with Brianna's daughter Layla. It takes a while for Brianna to step down from her 12 year plan of no dating, but cant help falling for Hugh.

Have you listened to any of B.J. Harrison’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Its just as good as all the others I have listened to

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

You don't have to kiss that many frogs to find your Prince

Any additional comments?

Another good listen from Melissa and BJ Harrison

Playboy meets his match

Hugh Braden, playbook racing car driver meets Brianna Heart, single mother, by chance. They end up with sparks flying between them and fall for one another but Brianna is cautious because of her 6year old daughter Layla. Beautiful story and wonderfully narrated. I love that B.J. manages to keep the same voices for each character as the Love in Bloom series continues. Wonderful book by Melissa and amazingly brought to life by B.J. Harrison.

Heart-warming HEA

As a Grand Prix driver, Hugh Braden know all about the limelight and everything that goes along with it. He’s dated actresses, models, debutants the whole gamut. He’s used to having his pick and being in charge but, as a favor to his mechanic, he goes on a blind date thinking he will have a drink or two with this woman and call it a night. What he encounters at the small town bar is something he’s never thought he wanted, something that will change his life forever.
Brianna Heart is a talented photographer and a single mom, working two jobs and doing what she thinks is best to build a safe, stable life for herself and her six year old daughter. She has a plan, that doesn’t include any man, and she’s managed to stick to it for the past six years. Only 12 more to go. Her waitressing job at the local bar puts food on their table, pays most of the bills, and has provided her with friends who are willing to watch over and protect her and Layla.
When Hugh’s blind date turns out to be the town gold-digger and loudmouth, he extracts himself as quickly as possible and decides to return to the bar the next night to see if he can get the beautiful waitress to go out with him, but she keeps him at arm’s length and tries to ignore him. What will it take to win her over, and why is it so important to him that he does?
Hugh and Bri’s story is truly heart-warming. It’s an awakening for both of them as they come to the realization that they need each other and that this need will not disrupt their lives but will surely enrich them. The interaction between the main characters is flawless, especially between Layla and Hugh. This is now my favorite Braden story. If you have followed the Braden’s at all, you cannot miss this one.
