Emily Braden is a leader in architectural preservation, a pillar in her small hometown, and successful in everything she does—with the exception of finding true love. She’s watched several of her brothers fall in love, and she needs this trip to Tuscany to get away from it all and to stop focusing on what she doesn’t have.

Dae Bray doesn’t do flings, and he never stays in one place for very long. As a demolitionist, he goes where jobs take him, and the more often he travels, the better. His trip to Tuscany is all work—until he meets smart and sexy Emily, who makes him reconsider his fear of settling down, his no-fling rule—and just about everything else he’s ever believed about himself.

Passion sizzles as Dae and Emily explore the history and beauty of Tuscany. Their romance moves beyond tourist attractions to the bedroom, blossoming into a deep connection neither can deny. But their worlds collide when Emily wants to preserve the property that Dae is there to demolish. Can a woman who sees the beauty in preservation and a man whose life is spent tearing things down find a solid foundation for their love?

Thank you to JB for letting me take part in this blog tour.

Emily is sweet and sassy. She grew up with 5 brothers and was always competing to be better than them which she has now transferred into her work. She wants to be the best damn passive house architect. So of course she hasn’t taken any time off and even in Tuscany she can’t seem to put her phone down. That is until Dae Bray walks in.

Dae Bray is hot hot hot. If you are a big Melissa fan like me then you will recognise his surname, he is the loving brother of Leanna Bray from Read, Write, Love. Dae is sweet and caring. He is big hearted and he only wants to do the right thing.

I loved Tuscany. I really love Italy in general and I have visited Rome and Venice both of which I loved. I felt like I was in Tuscany with these two visiting the cathedral, the house of wishes, the poppy field and the sunflower field.

I loved the supporting characters of Adelina and Serafina.

I absolutely loved Luke and Daisy’s wedding and I really loved the ending of this book. Once again Melissa had me in tears. It was incredibly sweet.
