Lovers at Heart – Book Review & Giveaway


Book #1 The Bradens, Love in Bloom Series #4

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.

LOVERS AT HEART is part of the 9 book Love in Bloom series – a new release every 30 days.  **CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My Review

To start  you off
Lovers at Heart is the fourth of nine books in this Love in Bloom Series. This
book takes focus on Max Armstrong and Treat Braden but also swirls into the
rest of the Braden family. I like the well drawn out characters, a writer that
can literally make you fall in love with an entire family has talent and
Melissa Foster has done that here. You
want to know more about each person that she introduces along the way so it’s a fun series to read. 
Lovers at Heart-
Treat and Max have a connection that you cannot miss, demons
though from their past put them through plenty along their journey together.
They meet at a wedding and just hit it off from the start but you have that
past lingering and a wall of barriers.  After
a long depressing six months between their first encounter and having Max on
his mind the entire time , Treat is given a chance- Max is back in town. Treat
has had a very hard time, struggling with himself and things so
the moment he realizes he has a chance  with Max it quickly becomes a moment where you
are talking to him nearly shouting “Do not pass this up, don’t screw this up
Treat!” In the end Treat is not
willing to let the chance pass by and wants to get to know her better.
So their journey begins which is really fun to read, I truly enjoyed it.
The question is can Treat and Max let down their guard long enough to get to
know each other better? Can they move past the hurt they have both suffered in
the past and let each other in? You’ll have to read to find that out.
Like the previous books in the series you have a wonderfully
laid out list of characters and one very strong family that you can’t get
enough of. Within each you get to know them, hear their struggles and feel
their pain before you just fall in love with them as they grow. You are taken
along and crossing your fingers that they can pull through to the end. I love
each and every one of them and I am sure you will fall in love with them

Melissa Foster pulled off another wonderful book with Lovers
at Heart and truly kept a great series going strong, you don’t want to miss any
of them in the Love in Bloom Series!

Book #1 Snow Sisters, Love in Bloom Series 
Sisters In Love

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.

Sisters In Bloom
You loved Danica and Kaylie in SISTERS IN LOVE, find out what happens next with SISTERS IN BLOOM “
Kaylie Snow has always been the fun, flirty, pretty sister. Now her burgeoning baby bump, hormone-infused emotions, and faltering singing career are sending her into an unexpected identity crisis. Watching her older sister, Danica, glide through a major career change and a new relationship with the grace of a ballerina, Kaylie’s insecurities rise to the forefront—and her relationship with fiancé Chaz Crew is caught in the crossfire.
Chaz Crew has everything he’s ever wanted: a lovely fiancée, a baby on the way, and soon, the film festival he owns will host its biggest event ever. When he’s called away to woo the festival’s largest sponsor—and the lover he’s never admitted to having—secrets from his past turn his new life upside down.
With her baby shower around the corner and her fiancé’s big event looming, the pressure is on for Kaylie to pull herself together—and for Chaz to right his wrongs. In a few short weeks, the couple who had it all figured out will learn things about life and love that may change their minds—and their hearts.

Book #3 Snow Sisters, Love in Bloom Series
Sisters In White

Danica and Kaylie Snow are about to celebrate the biggest day of their lives—their double wedding—on an island in the Bahamas. But no wedding is complete without a little family drama. The two sisters aren’t ready to face the father they haven’t seen since he divorced their mother and moved away to marry his mistress, and live with Lacy, the half sister they’ve never met.

While Danica has exchanged letters and phone calls with Lacy, Kaylie has fervently tried to pretend she doesn’t exist. Lacy is sweet, fun, and nearly a mirror image of Kaylie. To make matters worse, not only is Lacy looking forward to meeting her sisters, but she idolizes them, too. As the countdown to the wedding date ticks on, their parents are playing a devious game of revenge, and there’s a storm brewing over the island, threatening to cancel their perfect wedding. The sisters are about to find out if the bond of sisterhood really trumps all.

    This sounds like a great read. I spend my whole summers reading at the beach, but come winter I don't read as much as I'd like. This sounds like a book I could really curl up and get into!

    Ohh Laa Laa! This definitely sounds like a steamy read! I love picking up books in a series. I always feel really sad when there is only one book, then it's over!

  5. Annie

    This sounds like a very steamy read, hehe. I love books that in a series since one novel is oh too short, especially for characters you fall in love with!
