Fake Dating = Steamy Banter

Wild Island Love Leni Steele and Duncan Raz Melissa Foster
Have you read WILD ISLAND LOVE yet?

I wanted a happy ending for Leni more than the boys. She’s a kick-butt PR rep who looks like she has her whole life together. But she’s been burned by love more than once and she’s not willing to let her walls down. She isn’t going to risk getting hurt again.

Duncan Raz is an actor. He’s charming and he’s in need of a fake date to fix his public image after a bad breakup. What he doesn’t count on is Leni. Snarky, spitfire Leni Steele.

I loved watching Leni and Raz fall for each other because they both managed to convince themselves that it was fake. Leni was sure that Raz was just a really good actor. Raz was positive Leni saw it as a fake relationship. But both of them were falling for each other.

And oh my gosh the banter!! These two are 🥵 and I loved every minute of it!!

Duncan Raz is a serious family man

In WILD ISLAND LOVE, we get to see an actor who can put on a good face for the public. But when he introduces Leni to his parents and when he comes home to Silver Island with her and meets her family, we see an entirely different person. Raz is so amazing with his parents – and I loved the popsicle stick with Leni’s photo on it when she couldn’t join them out adventuring. Too cute!

And Silver Island Raz is the same – he’s charming with Leni’s parents and he handles her brothers like nobody’s business. He truly fits in among her family.

Leni jumped into her brother’s path and held up her hand. “Stop! Indi, control your beast. Raz, put on your frigging pants.”


The Steele family pranks return!

I would be afraid of my shadow if I lived with the Steele boys! I thought it was bad when they had Levi fake-arrested but what the boys do to Raz?! Oh my gosh!! The pranks were back in full force in WILD ISLAND LOVE and it was hilarious!

Don’t Miss a Sexy Steele Moment …

Jules and Grant Get Married!!!

Even though I haven’t actually read MY TRUE LOVE, I adore Jules and her extra-happy personality! I have been waiting for Jules’s wedding, after seeing how in love she and Grant are. She’s the sweetest, happiest person and an amazing sister and friend. And her wedding was SUPER ROMANTIC! It was the perfect pixie fairytale, 100% Jules.

Hadley threw it as high as she could and twirled beneath the showering confetti, shouting “Look, Daddy Dock! It’s pixie dust!”


Little Miss Hadley is even cuter!

I adore little kids and Hadley is the cutest ever! She stole my heart in TEMPTED BY LOVE with her and “Daddy Dock” but little flower girl Hadley was even better!

As with all of the Love in Bloom interconnected books, I loved the other characters who made appearances. Of course, Hadley and Joey were the highlights, but I also loved seeing Remi and Mason (and I completely forgot about Raz and Remi’s kissing scene!!).
