Daisy Honey fled Trusty, Colorado, after years of battling rumors sparked by her gorgeous looks and lust-inducing name. Now a physician on the brink of a promising career, she reluctantly returns home when her father is injured in a farming accident. Daisy expects the small-town girls who hurt her in the past to take cheap shots again - but she's completely unprepared for a run-in with tall, dark, and wickedly sexy Luke Braden, the only man who has ever stood up for her - and the man she's never forgotten. Luke Braden is handsome, wealthy, and the best damn gypsy horse breeder in the Midwest. After a restless youth, he's finally ready to settle down - only connecting with women is nothing like connecting with horses, and he's never met a woman worth the energy. After an arrest in a neighboring town, Luke's past comes back to haunt him, and he realizes that his inability to find love runs deeper than he ever imagined. A chance encounter sweeps Luke and Daisy into a world of passion. For the first time ever, Luke feels a connection, but Daisy's life in Trusty is anything but permanent, and Luke can't manage a future until he puts his past to rest. Taken by Love is part of the Love in Bloom series. While it can be heard as a stand-alone novel, for even more enjoyment, you may want to listen to the entire Love in Bloom series in order. Characters from each sub-series appear in future books.

Rating: 3.5 Stars
I was sent this book as part of an audiobook tour. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.
Melissa Foster is another author that I have been wanting to read. I was excited to get a copy of Taken by Love on audio. This is part of a series, but can be read as a standalone. This was my first book from the author and I enjoyed this as a standalone. I will be checking out some of the other books in the series too.
I really liked both Daisey and Luke and I found myself routing for their relationship. I enjoyed how the author connected you with the characters and the story. It was relatable in several different ways. I loved the romance between our characters.
This is very fast paced, and if you decide to listen to this on audiobook you will fly through it (I do listen at double the speed).
Overall, this was better than I expected and I am happy to finally have picked up something from this author.
