Bursting With Love by Melissa Foster and a GIVEAWAY


NEWLY RELEASED........
Book #5 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #8

Jack Remington lost his wife in a tragic accident, to which he feels he is to blame.   Running away from his life, he opens a survivalist camp in the mountains of Canada.  

Savannah Braden has just sworn off men after finding her music star boyfriend cheating on her once again.   She decides a survivalist camp in the middle of nowhere is exactly what she needs to move on.
 
My Review:

I usually tell more about the story before I start my review, but I truly felt that is all that needs to be told.   Anyone who is familiar with this series or Melissa Foster can tell where this is going, but OH MY….it was hot and fun getting there. 

Throughout the Snow Sisters Series, the men have been hot, sexy and romantic.   Jack is all those things, but he is also rough and tough with a lot more baggage than the other men.   At first I had a hard time warming up to Jack.  He came across as rude, obnoxious, and downright uncaring.  Then I started getting glimpses of his true self, the self from before the accident, the self he has hidden so deep inside it had to claw its way back out.  These glimpses warmed my heart for him.   Whether he was able to stay with Savannah or not I really wanted him to be happy again.  To understand it is called an accident for a reason and there was nothing anyone could do to stop it and to make up with those closest to him.

Savannah is amazing.   Not many people can understand what Jack is going through and know the right words to say and the right way to comfort him.  At no point did she push him to move on, or forget his wife.   She had all the right words to encourage him to make things right, but in his own time frame.   I also enjoyed seeing how strong Savannah was, standing up to a groveling ex who caused her nothing but heart ache without knowing if Jack really was her happily ever after.    


I am so glad that Savannah got her happily ever after; it’s been a long time coming in this series.  Hugh is up next and I can hardly wait to read it.    The Remington’s story will follow.    Melissa Foster is amazing, she keeps coming up with such different, but equally romantic and fun stories about each character.   This is a series I recommend, but you can read any of the books as a standalone.   

BURSTING WITH LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series.

DANICA SNOW has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life. 

BLAKE CARTER is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best. 

WHEN BLAKE walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

Book #4 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series
Lovers at Heart

You met Treat Braden and Max Armstrong in Sisters in White, Book Three of the Snow Sisters (Love in Bloom Series). Now fall in love with Treat and Max all over again, and see where their hearts take them next.

Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Rex Braden is wealthy, hard working, and fiercely loyal. Sweat at his brow, he works the family ranch by day, then kicks back at night with part time lovers who require nothing more than his physical presence a few times each week. But that was before. Before Jade Johnson, the daughter of the man his father has been feuding with for over forty years, moves back into town.

After ditching a horrific relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is...until her horse is injured and Rex Braden comes to her rescue. The last thing she needs is a bull-headed, too-handsome-for-his-own-good Braden complicating her life.

Despite the angry family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, and attitudes follow. Fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love stirs a surge of passion too strong for either to deny—and the rebel in each of them rears its powerful head. Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained. Rex and Jade are about to find out if true love really can conquer all.

Every steamy kiss and every erotic caress stirs a love they cannot deny.

Book #4 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #7
Sea of Love
You fell in love with Lacy Snow in Sisters in White (Snow Sisters, Book Three).  Follow her on her path to her forever love in Sea of Love.

Lacy Snow wasn’t looking for love when she met strikingly handsome and seductive Dane Braden. But how could she ignore the six-foot-three darkly handsome god who tagged and researched sharks for a living—and made every nerve in her body tangle into an overly sensitive knot? Even her fear of sharks could not suppress their intense attraction.

As founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden travels from port to port, educating and advocating on behalf of the mammals he adores—and spends his nights finding solace in the arms of strangers. The last thing Dane was looking for when he met Lacy Snow was a relationship, and the last thing he expected was to fall in love.

Fifteen months—and hundreds of flirty emails, steamy phone calls, and sensual video chats—later, they reunite and take passion to a whole new level. But as Lacy’s phobia meets Dane’s past love life, their steamy romance is upended, and when tragedy strikes, Dane and Lacy are forced to face their deepest fears head-on as they try to navigate their own sea of love.
