Friendship on Fire is the sixth book in the Love in Bloom series. While Friendship on Fire can be experienced as a standalone novel, for even more listening enjoyment you may want to hear the Love in Bloom series in series order.
Small-town overachiever Riley Banks has finally scored her big break - working in Manhattan as a fashion design assistant for her childhood crush, Josh Braden. She enters her new job hoping to make a name for herself and - just maybe - explore the romance that slipped through her fingers way back when.
Josh Braden has models at his beck and call, a staff that never says never, and an elegant clothing line for the holiday season. When he hires Riley Banks, he expects her to learn the business from the ground up. But the girl next door turns out to be much more than he remembered.
Josh and Riley's friendship heats up. Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny. But when Riley designs a wedding gown that would cause even the most jaded fashion editors to swoon, Riley's mentor accuses her of stealing the design.
Facing indisputable proof and the mistrust of her lover, Riley is not sure she can take the heat of life in the fast lane of the fashion industry - and Josh is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the career he adores.

Oh the tensions were strong in this one.

Super sweet couple!!!
Well for one, I absolutely love the Bradens and Josh is no exception! I also love the storyline because it is not quite a typical one. Josh Riley knew each other back in Weston but Josh has been gone for some years now bulding his Fashion business in NYC. Set in the world of high fashion, besides the sexy, sweet flirty and fun times of Josh & Riley, there was quite a lot of drama to get through and thoughts of betrayal. But I also love the narrator! BJ Harrison has quite a way of bringing these characters to life! He really does these books justice!
There are so many memorable moments, but one of the best for me would be near the end and give away too much, so let me just leave that statement right there and say this is a must listen or read to the end! You will not regret it!
After my initial listen of him quite a few audiobooks ago, I have had nothing but love for him! He cracks me up with some of his voices, like Treat's and Jade's. They really jump out at you. He does such an awesome job of transitioning from male to female and back again with accents, from heavy to none at all.
This book made me angry at what was going on and that things were not going the way I had hoped. It also made me laugh, swoon and cry. Melissa Foster books always elicit most of my emotions! That is why I love them so much!
This book was a phenomenal read and an even better listen! Give it a try!
