Stroke of Love by Melissa Foster

Reviewed by Charlotte Lynn
Book #2 of the Love in Bloom:  The Remingtons series
Expect Publish Date:  March 11, 2014

Sage, successful artist, has been living a life missing something.   He chooses to help the Artist for International Aid or AIA in a little known area.  Once there he meets Kate, the program director.   While she is use to working with celebrities and their larger than life egos, she finds out that Sage is not like the other celebrities that come to help.   Sage is down to earth, there for the right reasons, and not looking to see his name on TV, newspaper, or internet. 

My Review:

I immediately fell for Sage, although he is a popular and successful artist, he is so down to earth and real.   He knows what he wants to do and isn’t doing it to make him more popular or to make him more money; he does it to make the world better or just because he wants to.    He is not selfish and is really a breath of fresh air.   The way he eases into Kate’s life and world, not letting Kate’s tough exterior keep him away or detour him from making a difference in the town or with the kids he is working for.  

I am sure I say this about Melissa Foster’s entire series, but it is amazing.   They are each so perfectly written and with so much love and character I cannot stop reading.  Each can be read as a stand-alone, but are so much more enjoyable as a series.
