After having her heart broken by a country music star, Savannah Braden has sworn off men. She takes a break from her fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle for a weekend at a survivor camp to rebuild her confidence and readjust her priorities. But when she meets the handsome guide, Jack Remington, she's drawn to everything about him - from his powerful physique to his brooding stare - despite the big chip on his shoulder.

Bursting with Love: Love in Bloom, Book 8; The Bradens, Book 5 by Melissa Foster and narrated by B.J. Harrison
Beautiful, strong and extremely capable Manhattan attorney Savannah Braden has had it with her on again off again boyfriend country music star Connor Dean. Questioning why she took him back after cheating on her multiple times, she decides to get away at a survivor camp in the mountains, hoping to rebuild her confidence and get her head and heart on straight. She doesn’t need a man in her life, but watching her brothers fall in love makes her question when will it be her turn?

Savannah doesn’t count on meeting the brooding, handsome alpha Jack Remington, their pilot and survival guide for the next few days. Although he’s anything but friendly, she’s inexplicably attracted to him, from his rugged good looks to his masculine physique and although he brings new meaning to the term gruff, he shares the powerful attraction, stealing glances as if against his own will. This throws her making her question herself even more.

Jack had walked away from life, leaving family and friends behind after losing his beloved wife Linda in a tragic accident two years earlier. An accident he blames himself for. He can’t get past the guilt, so he runs away to the mountains living a solitary life and punishing himself, not allowing any happiness, joy or love into his life.

He is not prepared for the magnetic force of attraction he feels for Savannah and after saving her from a bobcat, they share a passionate kiss that changes everything..

Jack, confused and ruled by guilt waffles between being the broken man and self-proclaimed mean bastard he is and the old Jack wanting to reemerge.

Savannah is exactly what Jack needs, but is he what she needs? Will she forever be living with Linda’s ghost or will Jack be able to finally face his past and put it to rest?

This is a very emotional story of love and loss and love again, packed with intense and spontaneous heat, passion, romance and love. There are tender sweet moments, heartbreaking memories and coming to terms with the truth of what we should assume responsibility for and what is simply fate.

The family reunion was particularly heartfelt and emotional. B.J. Harrison does a phenomenal job of bringing these characters to life. He has perfect timing, knowing when to speak softly and when to raise his voice, the way you do when making a point or losing your temper. Once again his cadence and different voices make it easy to follow the story, easily recognizing each character. He does an amazing job of voicing the parents, putting you in the story as if a witness to the action.

Another 5 stars for Melissa Foster for bringing a story of self-forgiveness, enlightenment and letting yourself be open to the possibility of love, told in the way only she can do it justice!

Best-selling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller - that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Read, Write, Love at Seaside: Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers, Book 1
by Addison Cole nad narrated by Melissa Moran

Kurt Remington and Leanna Bray prove opposites attract!

When best-selling author of dark thrillers Kurt Remington goes to the Cape to finish his next novel, he is interrupted while writing by Leanna Bray trying to save her dog from drowning in the ocean. Annoyed, Kurt can’t leave them to drown and rescues them. The mess that ensues is a hilarious start to their love story.

Leanna couldn’t be more opposite to the neat freak, minimalist, uber organized and sexy hunk Kurt Remington. So begins this unlikely romance between a free spirit who doesn’t know the meaning of the word - plan, who is frequently covered in her own homemade jam, and a super organized, meticulously neat man who doesn’t want pets (think hairs and mud) and has no time for romance in his 12 hour a day writing schedule..

Can opposites of this magnitude stand a chance or will their differences end a romance before it can begin?

I love the pull they both feel, even when logic dictates otherwise. They learn that they genuinely like each other, fall in like while falling in love and that compromises can be made by both as they navigate this often rocky, but beautiful love story.I love how they both grown in ways they didn’t know they were capable of because of their interaction with each other.

Melissa Moran does a great job of bringing life to the characters and her voice is pleasant and soothing as you listen to this sweet with heat story!

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?

Sea of Love: Love in Bloom, Book 7 by Melissa Foster Narrated by B.J. Harrison

Sea of Love brings us the love story of shark researcher and founder of the Brave Foundation, Dane Braden and Lacy Snow, Danica and Kaylie’s younger half-sister.

Dane travels all over the world educating and protecting sharks. Happy in his life and not looking for a relationship or love, he meets and is immediately smitten with Lacy Snow when they meet at Danica’s and Kaylie;s destination wedding.

Lacy too feels the pull of attraction and heat between them and so begins a fifteen month “relationship” of sort. Dane and Lacy learn about each other through texts, emails, FaceTime and phone calls. Playful, often naughty, flirty and sensual, but never syncing their schedules to meet again until they both attend Max and Treat’s wedding.

Both wondering why they didn’t make the time before now, they embark on a passionate journey all their own, until the past and Lacy’s real fear of sharks and what caused it threaten their new found romance.

The ups and downs forces them to face their differences, their pasts and whether or not they can have a real future together as they navigate their own sea of love.


BJ Harrison has become a favorite narrator for me. His voice is hypnotic and brings life to Melissa’s characters, differentiating between them seamlessly.

Riley Banks is best friends with Jade Johnson and like Jade, had a crush in high school on one the Braden boys - Josh Braden. Unknown to Riley, Josh shared that attraction, though he never acted on it. Fast forward to years later. Riley is a young designer with no where to go in Weston and Josh is a celebrated New York fashion designer.

Through a series of home visits Josh sees Riley’s portfolio and offers her a job at his design firm. This is the break Riley never saw coming and as she heads out to NYC, she’s filled with a mix of anticipation and apprehension, questioning whether she’s meant for the big city, at the same time Josh is questioning his own direction. He misses the simplicity of back home and honesty compared to the often cutthroat environment he works and resides in. He’s tired of dating the “right” women and the more time he spends with Riley, the clearer things appear. Riley is easy to be with, beautiful and sexy, honest and real, vibrant and full of life. Josh, the hot, celebrated eligible bachelor, who longs for more, can’t resist her. He and Riley start a relationship in spite of her determination to focus only on her budding career, not wanting to become the office water cooler gossip topic, Josh reluctantly agrees t keep their relationship secret.

Claudia, the conniving, often manipulative employee assigned as Riley’s mentor does everything in her power to destroy Riley’s credibility and the budding attraction she witnesses, wanting to claim Josh for herself. Her uncle gave Josh his first big break and Josh felt compelled to hire Claudia as a favor. Riley is eventually accused of stealing designs and has to defend herself. These accusations can end her career before it even gets off the ground and it tests her relationship with Josh on both a business and personal level.

This is where we see Josh’s struggle. He wants to believe Riley, but all evidence points to her guilt. Riley is floored, but refuses to let it ruin her or beg Josh to believe her.

This friends to lovers story won’t disappoint. Read or listen for yourself. I did both. I love B.J. Harrison and can easily get lost in the story listening to his narration. Another 5 stars!

I read the book and listened to the audio book. I am a fan of B.J. Harrison. His tone and inflection add so much to an already great story.

Rex Braden and Jade Johnson could never act on their mutual attraction since their teen years due to the ongoing family feud akin to the Hatfield’s and McCoy’s. Neither even knowing what caused it in the first place.

Rex is the consummate cowboy, dark good looks, rugged, strong, loyal and full of passion. Jade is a raven haired beauty, a veterinarian who loves with all her heart. Both are close to their families, and neither would ever want to hurt or disappoint them.

When Jade returns to her family home, right next door to the Braden’s it’s inevitable that they would run into each other. Rex fights his attraction out of loyalty to his father, the man he measures all others, including himself, against. That high standard causes Rex no small amount of inner turmoil. But as love and the fates decide for you, Rex is unable to resist the pull of love. Being forced to sneak around and hide their relationship puts undue strain on the young lovers.

The love they tried so hard to deny becomes the binding that will keep them together, Taking an “us against the world” attitude, Rex and Jade risk losing their families to be together. The showdown is heartfelt, moving and in the end, what you’ve come to expect from a a Melissa Foster book.

This is one of my favorite Melissa Foster book and now audiobook too. B.J. Harrison does an excellent job - as always - of breathing life and diversity into these characters.

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

I love single parent falls in love stories. This one does not disappoint.

Mira Savage is a single mother to uber smart Hagen. Sweet, precocious with an unending thirst for knowledge, he is always wanting to know why and asking a million questions. Mira works as the bookkeeper at Lacroux hardware and has had a crush on Matt Lacroux since they met a year ago at an engagement party. But the sexy professor teaches at Princeton and her life is on the Cape, so they remain friends despite their intense mutual attraction, spending time together whenever he visits.

Fate brings them together when Matt takes a three month sabbatical and returns home, giving him the opportunity to move past the friend zone. What ensues is a journey into love and the forging of a family. Matt is a perfect role model for Hagen, patient, kind and so selfless. He has his own issues to deal with and you get to see the Lacroux family dynamic. Mira and Hagen are already a part of it and Mira always puts Hagen first in all things. Watching her take a small slice of happiness for herself and learn to trust in Matt and her own feelings is so relevant in today’s world. I think single parents can truly relate to the push and pull of wanting something for yourself, while always protecting your child.

I listened to the audio book and Andi Arndt & Sebastian York did a great job of bringing them to life. This is a sweet story, with plenty of passion and romance. You won’t be disappointed.

I listend to the audiobook of Lovers at Seaside and the narration of Lucy River & Aiden Snow was the first time I’ve listened to both. It took me awhile to get used to their voices, mostly because I’m used to BJ Harrison, but once I did I liked them a lot.

Parker Collins is a famous actress taking a much needed break after losing someone very dear to her, her mentor and the closest thing to family she had, Bert Stein. Hiding away in Wellfleet, MA, where she feels free to grieve in solitude with no one but her dog, Christmas.

Grayson Lacroux is the artist who has been corresponding with Parker while working on her project for the past year. They separately fell for each other over months of communications, planning to meet, but Parker didn’t show. Then by accident he happens upon her in her hour of desperate grief and what a mess she is, surrounded by junk food, chocolate and tequila.

So begins their journey together. Grayson stands by her side, helping her carry out a promise she made to herself to meet Bert’s estranged brother, for his sake and oddly enough, for her own as well. I especially enjoyed the meetings between the three different people and what each walked away with after.

Grayson and Parker’s chemistry was immediate, but I loved how Grayson wanted to know everything about the woman who captured his heart. As pasts are revealed and secrets exposed, their new love is threatened,

Once again Addison Cole takes us on an adventure toward HEA. These two characters are up there with my other favorites. This book is a sweet love story woven with loss, new beginnings and of course genuine love.

This was my first Melissa Foster book that kept me coming back for more. I have both read and listened to it and each time I get a little more out of their story and it holds a special place in my heart.

Treat, the oldest of six children, lost his mom at the tender age of eleven and tried to step up and help each of them deal with their devastating loss. We get to see the Braden family dynamics and I think that is my favorite part of the book. Hal Braden is the patriarch of the family and is a strong, alpha male who sets a fine example for his children. Never one to shy away from showing his love for them and the woman who still owns his heart, he’s always there. I love Hal. He gave each of his children the opportunity to pursue their own dreams and Treat went on to become a wealthy resort owner, traveling the world looking for the next new venture.

Max Armstrong has built a very comfortable life for herself as a successful event planner. This is how Max and Treat come to know each other, as she plans the destination wedding for her boss and friends Chaz Crew and Kaylie Snow and Kaylie’s sister Danica and Blake Carter, Treat’s cousin. We meet them in Sisters in White, Book 3 of The Snow Sisters (Love in Bloom). Max is efficient and detail oriented, which makes her a real asset in her job, keeping everything organized and running smoothly. However, her personal life is almost non-existent due to a painful past relationship that she hasn’t really come to terms with. In truth, she’s run from her past and as we all know, it eventually catches up with you.

Treat Braden and Max Armstrong are two flawed people each dealing with issues from their past who meet in person at the destination wedding after having worked together for months over the phone planning it and a relationship of sorts forms.

Treat is older than Max and a confirmed bachelor until he meets her. He doesn’t understand the instant attraction that is more than physical and the shifting of his heart, at first confuses and almost irritates him. He’s also quick to pass judgement and that comes back to haunt him.

Max is a strong willed woman who can’t escape her own past and it threatens everything she wants.

I won’t go into detail beyond what brought them together or sent them in opposite directions - all the other reviews do that. I will say fate keeps bringing them together and neither can forget the other, but if they want a chance at a real relationship, at love - they both have painful issues to deal with first. We travel with them from Nassau to Weston, CO to Wellfleet, MA. I especially loved the time in Wellfleet, it gives more insight into what makes Treat the man he is and shows another side to him.

Take the time to read and listen to this first book in the Braden saga and you’ll get hooked. B.J. Harrison does a great job of narrating with his soothing voice that easily transitions from one character to the next without getting lost and that always manages to transport me into the story.

There’s more to this story than you think at first. If you’re a Melissa Foster fan you’ve come to expect alpha males with a tender side and smart, sassy females who challenge their heroes on their way to their HEA. But you also get so much more. The “family knows no boundaries” message is there in each book, but it’s presented in an honest way. You get the unconditional support along with a healthy dose of “I wish my family could stay out of my business” as well.

Jana and Hunter are two souls who connected as “bed buddies” keeping it casual, but Hunter Lacroux finds himself wanting more. More of Jana Garner and it confounds him. Jana’s smart mouth challenges him at every turn, only drawing him in deeper.

Jana has herself spread thin with her many obligations and insane schedule, dancer/instructor, boxer, actress and waitress at her brother Colton’s bar, her life is anything but simple. Still, commitment phobic due to several bad relationships she decides she’s never getting involved again, which is why she’s running scared of her own reaction to being with Hunter and only Hunter in the last six months.

As Hunter works on a new metal sculpture for a contest he and his brother Grayson are entering, he decides to help friend and co-worker Clark save his marriage. This brought out a side to Hunter that I think surprised even him. He looked up “how to be romantic” in an attempt to help Clark and so begins his own exploration of what it means and how it impacts him as well.

As Hunter pursues Jana, she runs fast, but their explosive passion pulls her back. Will Jana allow her fears to end what could possibly be the one true love for her? Or will she trust Hunter and find that real love is worth taking the leap? Of course you get more of the Seaside girls and their men who always add to the story with their antics, insight and laughs.

The narrators Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden were new to me and I found they did a great job in both pacing and evoking emotions.

What happens when you have a double destination wedding at a luxurious resort in the Bahamas, lots of family drama, bad weather and get to meet two Braden brothers? Sisters in White is the third book in the Snow Sisters trilogy as we attend the double wedding of the Snow sisters, Danica and Kaylie to Blake and Chaz.

Enter family drama in the form of their estranged father who divorced their mother in order to marry his mistress and raise their half-sister Lacy, whom they’ve never met. Unknown to Kaylie, Danica has been in communication with Lacy through email and phone calls. Kaylie can’t forgive her father and struggles with what she perceives as her mother’s weakness. Both sisters struggle with their own views of love, relationships, marriage. forgiveness and acceptance.

How will each react to their father, his new wife Madeline and Lacy? Not to mention their mother is there to add a few surprises of her own.

We also get a preview of new relationships. Max Armstrong, (Kaylie refers to her as Chaz’s work wife) and Treat Braden, (Blake’s cousin and owner of the resort who is hosting the wedding) as well as Dane Braden, Treat’s younger brother and his attraction to Lacy. We see Sally, Rusty and Gage and wonder what’s going to happen with them.The secondary characters add so much as is Melissa Foster’s way of weaving a poignant love story together and make you beg for more.

BJ Harrison has become a favorite narrator of mine and he adds a lot to each of the books. I never feel lost or wonder who’s talking due to his ability to differentiate between the characters.

This book wraps up the saga of the Snow sisters very nicely and sets up the beginning for the Braden family saga. This can be listened to as a stand alone, but do yourself a favor and get the other two as well. You won’t be disappointed!
