It's been years since Sally Tuft's husband died and she was left to raise her teenage son alone. And almost as long since she told the only other man she'd ever wanted that they should be just friends. Now her son has left for college and Sally has no distractions to keep her from thinking about her best friend and coworker, Gage Ryder, and what could have been.
Gage always believed that one day Sally would move past the death of her husband and they would finally explore the passion that's simmered between them since the day they met. Tasked with opening a new youth center in Oak Falls, Virginia, Gage hopes the trip away is just what they need to finally come together.
Before Gage and Sally ever reach Oak Falls, one night at a conference changes everything, putting their friendship - and their love - on the line, and the two must decide if getting swept up in love is the beginning of forever, or the end of their friendship as they know it.
The Ryders are a series of sexy stand-alone 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.

Love Love Loved it
Sometimes when you wait for a book to end a series you are left feeling let down, not with this one. Gage and Sally have been friends for years, they work together, she goes with him on all his family get together s. He is best friends with her son. Then one night in Vegas it changes their lives forever. Sally then starts to have doubts about what their new relationship. Will it affect working together, what will Rusty think. It all comes out when they have to fly to the Cape because Rusty is in trouble. It all comes out and after a few melt downs on all sides they finally come together as a family. I loved reading and listening to this book. Thank you Melissa, it was great to catch up with old friends.

Gage and Sally have known each other for years - meeting right after Sally's husabnd tragically dies in a skiing accident. One night while in Las Vegas for a work event,, they are co-workers, they realize that what happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas as they realize they got married the night before. Gage and Sally have practically been a couple since they became friends and while Sally is freaked out about this revelation Gage convinces her to let them be a married couple while they open a new community center. Learn how wonderful Gage is throughout this dating period and also shows much he values his relationship with Sally's young adult son, Rusty. I love the dynamic of also having an older child and Rusty's responses to Gage and Sally finally getting together.
Love, love, love this novel. BJ’s performance is incredible and brings this book to life.
This is one of, if not, my favrotie Melissa Foster book to date. Absolutely adore Gage and how real Sally is. If you have been waiting for Sally and Gage's story since the beginning of the Love in Bloom series, you will not be disappointed!

Gage and Sally
Oh My Gosh… Gage, sigh. Sally, wow! Their emotions jumped out of the recording of this story. I could hear the angst of Gage trying to control his feelings, the worry of Sally trying to keep her feelings hidden. I could hear the hope they had for each other, the love they felt for each other, and the respect they had for Randy during their entire secret, relationship. Once again BJ Harrison did an amazing job of making the characters come alive, making their story be real, and pulling the listener right in.
Gage and Sally are the couple all Melissa Foster Love in Bloom readers have been waiting for. They have circled each other, flirted shamelessly, and been in love for so long that theirs was a story that had to be told. Let me tell you right away this is the perfect, beautiful, wonderful, sexy, and loving story for them.
The saying What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas is the perfect start for them. In this case what happen in Vegas leads to heart ache, soul searching, opening of hearts, and learning to trust. Leaving their business trip and heading home brings to their lives many tough decisions and opens their eyes to all that they mean to each other.
I love Gage’s dirty mouth, sweet demeanor, and total thoughtfulness of Randy (Sally’s son). The way he makes Sally blush and come out of her shell while not pushing her too far out of her comfort zone is perfect. Sally is also willing to come out of her comfort zone to experience the full force of Gage. The relationship between these two is hot, steamy, sweet, loving, and wonderful. Everything these two deserve after their long….very long courtship.
My favorite is catching up with past couples in the Love in Bloom series. I love hearing about their relationships, their weddings, and their babies. This is a series that I hope never ends. I recommend picking up your own copy ASAP.
