    Great Story

    I love Grace and Reed's story so much. Learning about the Montgomery's tradions and all these new characters is so exciting.  I can picture them getting thier own HEA's already.  Great story and I can't wait for the next one!

    Grace and Reed- Second chance at romance

    They say once you make the decision to move away from your roots you can never go back. Grace Montgomery tried and succeeded but found her roots once again and a second chance at romance with her secret love from High School, Reed Cross. Grace and Reed had to keep their relationship a secret while they were in High school since they went to rival high schools. Only to find out years later that pretty much everyone knew the secret. Grace was a successful NYC Off Broadway producer who was determined to dress and act like a New Yorker and never go back to her cowboy boot, cut off shorts wearing days. In her mind she was to sophisticated for that until the day she saw Reed Cross again. Her first love. All bets were off. Reed was determined to get Grace back once he found out she was in Virginia for a three week vacation. Backtrack a bit…He sold his half of his business in Michigan to move back to Virginia to help his uncle with his business since he was in bad health and Reed’s business partner was found in bed with Reed’s then girlfriend. Reed always felt something was missing from “that” relationship since no one came close to perfection in his mind then Grace. Move forward… Reed and Grace find each other and their Happy Ever After however, this did not happen overnight :) Once again Melissa does a great job bringing her characters to life. In my mind I can picture the old theater that Reed purchased. I can picture the film playing behind the theater. I can picture the house Grace grew up on. Melissa makes it feel like you are part of the fun. Can’t wait for the next book in this series!

    True love will not be denied

    The last thing Grace expected to see when she visits her parents home is Reed, her childhood sweetheart and the one she left behind in pursuit of her career. Even after years of trying to forget each other, the love between them can not be denied. When their feelings reignite can they hold on to their second chance at love? Drawn into the story, this was an intense, heart warming passionate read and a great introduction to the Montgomery family.

    Wonderful

    Reed and Grace were sweethearts back in school. However, they kept their relationship secret due to rival schools. Grace leaves her small town to become something. Reed return to help out an ailing family. Who says you can't have a 2nd chance with your first love. This time around Reed will have no sneaking around. What a fantastic story. Melissa is great making me escape from my daily life.

    4.5 Stars

    4.5 Stars Embracing Her Heart is the first title in the Pleasant Hill series, featuring The Bradens and The Montgomery's. It's a heartwarming, and sweet story full of heat, heart and humor. If you love a second chance romance, or small town trope this may be the book for you. Although this is the first title in the Pleasant Hill series, the town and several of the secondary characters have appeared in Melissa Foster's previous titles including Swept Into Love, Touched By Love and Bad Boys After Dark: Brett. Reed Cross is such an endearing character, and has the makings of a perfect book boyfriend. He's kind, loyal, caring, compassionate and above all determined. He's a carpenter and very good with his hands. Grace is fiercely independent and strong, and was desperate to escape the small town of Pleasant Hill the minute she finished high school. Although she's successful and accomplished her childhood dreams and goals, she's finding it's not as wonderful or fulfilling as she had expected. The sexual chemistry between Grace and Reed is undeniable and intense, and their connection just oozed off the page. I adored Grace's quirky and fun siblings, each with a distinct personality and I can't wait to see more of them in future titles. If you are looking for a well written read, interconnected standalone look no further than Melissa Foster, but be prepared once you start her books you will be sucked into her fictional worlds.
