The Bradens Series Book Six
By: Melissa Foster
Brianna Heart has a six-year old daughter and a twelve-year plan to keep her life as simple as possible until Layla turns eighteen. 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?

I liked that Brianna, was a struggling mother and that her life was complicated. It made her feel more real to me. And Hugh OMG!!! He is a Prince for sure. I absolutely LOVED the way he looked after Brianna and Layla. He wanted to give them the world. I am a sucker for love at first sight books. And the amazing chemistry that Hugh and Brianna have is SMOKING HOT!!!! I gave Hearts at Play 4 1/2 stars.
