    3.5 stars.This was a cute but I'm not fond of misunderstandings or assumptions in books. They both spend the first 30% making assumptions about each other. It drove me mad.Hero pushed her away because he didn't want to leave anyone behind if he got hurt or if he dies so he was scared of loving someone and heroine was scared because she didn't want fall in love and lose that person again.Heroine has some embarrassing moments that had me rolling my...

    This was very sweet! The H was great with the h’s son and the romance was mostly angst free. What bothered me was this- Heroine’s 5 years of celibacy is referred to as being a long time which I totally agree withHero’s 8 months of celibacy is also referred to as a long time with no sex- I don’t agree with this!Why this crazy double standard? I’m sick of it! Men don’t need sex to live and if they need an orgasm that badly they can use ...

  • Nerdy Dirty & Flirty
    This book was absolutely fantastic. It hit me in the feels in the best way. Bridgette and Bodhi were impossible not to love.Bodhi and his gruff exterior was instantly appealing because I wanted to know what his story was. Learning what his history and present were moved that appeal to me being his full blown cheerleader and wanting him to have the wonderful family he was on the verge of having with Bridgette and her sweet little boy. Bridgette wa...
  • Isha Coleman
    Only for You (Sugar Lake) by Melissa Foster  Many of our most defining moments are born of heartache and pain. What makes them prolific is that those instances are when a person is at their strongest. Ms. Foster never seems to forget that and it shows within her stories. In the face of loss, adversity and uncertainty, she inspires. Only for You is a tale of fearlessness. Bridgette is afraid of being left behind.  Bodhi is a loner.  His caree...

  • Julie
    This was my first time reading Melissa Foster and I was pleasantly surprised by the sweet romance and the ensuing ultra steamy scenes! Bohdi and Bridgette burned up the sheets with their “friends with benefits” idea, and I loved how things backfired on them. I enjoyed the closeness of Bridgette’s family and cracked up over Bridgette’s son Louie, because who could resist a precocious five year old full of sweetness? Bohdi was too perfect, ...
  • Jessica Alcazar
    Okay, so Melissa Foster has always come thru for me. This story was no exception. This story was gloriously sweet! I wanted to come up with a more eloquent word, but I kept coming back to sweet. I just smiled a heck of a lot when I read it and my heart was happy all the way thru. The relationship between Bodhi & Bridgette was very relatable and I connected very easily with them both! Bodhi's connection and interaction with Louie warmed my heart t...

    5 Sweet & Swoon Worthy Stars!!“She was torture and pleasure, sweet and sinful, and he never wanted to let her go.”“His mouth was like an ocean of heat and desire, and she wanted to sail away to the far reaches of the world and disappear into it.”“You came out of nowhere, and suddenly you’re all that I see.”This book was absolute perfection. Sweet, swoon-worthy with just the right amount of angst. Only For You had me hooked from the ...

I enjoyed this one just as I did with the first.I really love the Dalton family and the bond they all have, and I was curious as to if something would happen with Bridgette and Bohdi after his brief appearance in book 1.The story is a little unusual from others in terms of ...

    When our heart gets broke, instinct causes us to withdraw & curl up to protect it from hurt again. Often it takes something special, like a child's love, to pull us from such a dark & dismal part of our lives. Only the truly brave & strong open themselves up to the pain again. Bridgette lost her young husband in a horrible accident. She's dedicated her life to raising her son & trying to make up for him growing up without a father. She doesn't ne...

    Be still my heart. Bridgette and Bohdi will capture your heart and pull on every emotion known to man in this book. In true Melissa Foster fashion, our hero and heroine face trials that may seem difficult to some but Melissa knows her characters and what they can handle. We always get our HEA even if certain parts in the book make us gasp, OH NO! Bridgette, a single mother that is no stranger to heartache. After losing her husband five years ago ...

    It was odd to me to read with the omniscient narrator but as the scenes went by I started putting the film in my head. Super sweet this story and its characters. Love to read more!
  • Jessica Butler
    Melissa Foster does it again! I absolutely loved Bodhi and Bridgette's story. The story was beautifully written and Melissa did an amazing job of making us fall in love with the characters, and Bridgette's son is so adorable! I am also a sucker for single mom stories. When the love interest becomes buddies with the kid, my heart is gone. Bodhi's relationship with Bridgette's son is so cute and I couldn't get enough. Bridgette just wanted a no st...

    Sweetness abounds in the second installment of the Sugar Lake series, which was fitting given the name of the town in which the story took place. The story was not only sweet; it was heart-warming, funny and entertaining. I got my first glimpse of the main characters in the first book and could not wait to dive into their story and it sure was worth every waiting moment. Only for You tells the story of a single mom and the man who made her realis...

    ARC received for an honest reviewSigh. That's how I always feel after finishing a Melissa Foster book. You know what you are going to get, and that feeling is always there.Bridgette and Bodhi's story is sweet and sexy and heartwarming - however it is so much more than that.I love that neither of them are looking for anything, but it falls in their laps, and we see them fight for what they want - even when they are not 100% sure of what that is th...
  • Chasing Away Reality
    I've only read a few of Melissa Foster's books, and with each one, I fall further and further in love with her. She has a special way of delivering beautiful and heartrending stories with wonderful characters and well-developed worlds. Her characters all have depth and strength in their own way. And her secondary characters are just as important as the primary and provide so much to the journey to HEA. I love that I can expect greatness from the ...

    I feel like every Melissa Foster book I read becomes a favorite of mine. However this one really out did all the other books. In this book we meet Bridgette and Bodhi. Bridgette is a single mom who lives for her son, her family and her flower shop. Bodhi lives a life on the edge as a rescuer in secret missions. Because of this he will not let himself get close to anyone. I absolutely love that they meet and immediately hit it off. Even though nei...
