Love in Bloom: The Remingtons, Book 1
Publish February 17, 2014
Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she’s been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier she came to Dex seeking comfort, and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.
Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the U.S. He’s handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he’s not sure he’ll ever find a reason to feel again.
A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run—and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge or are they destined to be apart forever?
The Remington Family is absolutely amazing. This series starts with Dex and Ellie. Dex is a dream guy. Although his heart has been broken by the same girl not once but twice, he is still willing to put his heart on the line and let Ellie back into his life. That is what I call true love. Dex is not a pushover though, he knows that he is taking a risk and does not let Ellie walk all over him. He won’t let her run, as is her past history, and he pushes her to talk to him, tell him the truth.
Ellie is a rough cookie. She has had a tough background, being in foster home after foster home and having to move often. Not to mention the things she saw and dealt with while in those homes. Running has always been her go to escape. When Dex calls her out on her disappearing she knows that she has to stay and fight for the man she loves, has loved since she was twelve years old. I was cheering for her and her relationship with Dex to work from the very first page.
Melissa Foster has written another book that I could not possibly stop reading. Some of the characters in this book are familiar from the Snow Sister’s and the Braden’s series, which I loved. Game of Love can be read as part of a series or as a standalone book. I highly recommend this entire series, including this book.
