    "Loved in more in audio"

    Two people think they can carry the weight of world on their shoulders. Jewel struggles to do and be everything for her family, even though her mother's gotten the hang of things since the deaths of Jewel's father and eldest brother. And poor Nate, who's been in love with Jewel since the two were children, assumes guilt for her brother's death during Military combat. It takes these beautiful, strong-willed lovers some time to realize that strength doesn't equal complete independence, but once they let love in, the path to healing is illuminated for each of them respectively.

    "Healed....so true for this book!"

    Nate and Jewel are both broken for the same reason, the loss of Jewel's brother and Nate's best friend, Rick. He was killed while deployed and both Jewel and Nate have been struggling with that ever since. While this is problematic enough, this is also causing them to suppress the deep affection they have and have had for a very long time. Nate and Jewel need to work past their hurt and guilt. They need to let their attraction loose. They need to become everything they truly can be to each other.

    I highly recommend this book. I listened to the audio version after first reading this book when it was released. I frequently wanted to reach in and shake them both and tell them to just let go and FEEL! As usual, Melissa does an amazing job of getting me emotionally invested in her characters!

    "Loss & Love"

    Healed By Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD #1) by Melissa Foster
    I received an audio ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Nate Braden has secretly harbored serious feelings for his best friend Rick Fisher's little sister Jewel, but due to their age difference and out of respect for his best friend, he never acted on those feelings. Nate went through ROTC before joining the military and Rick joined as enlisted after losing his father. Several years later Rick died in Nate’s arms after a sniper attack.

    Nate is back in Peaceful Harbor, having finally left the military and Jewel is no longer the little girl he left behind, but all grown up. Survivor’s guilt and PTSD are eating him up alive, as well as the promise he made to Rick to take care of his family.
    He fights his attraction to Jewel because of one terrible secret that he hasn’t come to terms with yet and he’s fearful when Jewel and her family find out they’ll all hate him. Jewel is determined to break down his barriers after sharing one scorching hot kiss on New Year’s Eve.

    The mixed signals these two send each other add to their angst. Jewel deals with her brother and father’s loss in the only way she knows how. In the process she’s alienating her younger siblings without even realizing it.

    Nate doesn’t consider himself a hero, but he truly is in so many ways. Mrs. Fisher does much to aid Nate and I loved her for treating him as her “other” son and appreciating him. She helps him see things more clearly and as a man who always does the right thing he takes a chance that could cost him Jewel.

    Jewel has her own issues to work through and Nate opens her eyes in ways no one else could. It’s a heart wrenching, yet heart-warming story of loss and love.

    Melissa Foster did what she always does – touched my heart long after I finished Healed By Love.

    B.J. Harrison does another amazing job of bringing these characters to life. Put it on your “I must listen” list! You won’t be sorry.

    "Great book!"

    Healed by Love is a book that just sucks you right in. Nate has always had a thing for Jewel, but he never acted on it because she was his best friend's sister. Years later he is back, and now his best friend is gone. Nate and Jewel each struggle to deal with the loss, and they find comfort in each other. Can this be more? An excellent book that I highly recommend. I really enjoyed listening to the narrator as well.

    Story
    "A Soldier's Love and Pain"
    Where does Healed by Love: Nate Braden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There was something extra with this one. I think being able to hear the pain in what Nate was feeling shot the book up to the top of my list.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Healed by Love: Nate Braden?

    When Nate talked with Mrs. F and pretty much had a cleansing. There is just something about a man who bares his soul.


    What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    With BJ, you get to feel what Nate feels. Hearing the words, not just reading them, helps you to feel what Nate was going through as he dealt with his guilt and pain.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again, I'd have to say when Nate was with Rick & Jewel's mom, baring his soul to her.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I cried more during this book than any others I've listened to.

    "Another fantastic Audio"

    Another great book by Melissa Foster. I had the pleasure of not only reading this great book a few years ago, I recently got to listen to it on Audio. Let me just say that voice of BJ Harrison is sexy as all (amazon wouldn't let me use what I wanted to say). I have listen to several audio books in the past couple of months and BJ is right up there at the top as sexiest one. I'm sure glad Melissa got him to read her Braden books. Listening to him read I don't have to wonder what the Braden men would sound like. After listening to several of Melissa's books read by BJ I can now hear each of those Braden men in my head. BJ does a phenomenal job at reading Melissa's fabulous books. So this one is Nate and Jewels story. Nate Braden grow up as Jewel's brothers best friend and has been in love with Jewel for as long as he can remember. Both men enlist in the military and Nate comes home and Rick, Jewels brother doesn't. Nate blames himself so he holds back until he can no longer do so. Jewel doesn't want to love him, but she gives in. I will say that for a good part of the book, I wanted to jump in and just smack both of them, but Jewel more then Nate. Its nice to see an author write books that are so close to real life. She does that so well and its nice to read a book and just watch as it all clicks with the couple and when they finally realize they are meant for each other. Thank you Melissa for writing another great book and thank you from the bottom of my core for finding that sexy man BJ Harrison to read them for you. I enjoyed reading this book, but I enjoyed it being read to me even more. Another out of the park hit!!!

    "Great book!"

    This was a great book that I enjoyed from start to finish. I enjoyed the characters Nate and Jewel as they were relatable characters that had real life relatable issues as well as a strong sense of family. The characters were developed as they healed from grief and guilt about a past event. The plot moved along well and did not drag even though the grief that the characters were suffering was extremely repetitive. The narration of this book by Mr. Harrison was smooth and enjoyable. He kept the story flowing well. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and would recommend it to others.

    "Love"

    You just can't get enough of those handsome Braden men!! This book is the start of Melissa Foster's Peaceful Harbor Braden's. Nate Braden has loved Jewel Fisher forever. Can they get over the fact that Nate gave her brother the order that got him killed.. There is so much chemistry from the start that you are captivated immediately. BJ Harrison did an amazing job with the narration. Another great one my Melissa!!!

    "Love the Peaceful Harbor Braden's"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to a friend. First off, I love all of Melissa Foster's books. Her characters immediately grab you and pull you into their story. The Braden men are hot, sexy and sweet, who doesn't love that! Secondly, B.J. Harrison's voice when he narrates these Braden stories is so smooth, and he draws you further in to the book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nate would be my favorite in this book. He has so many sides to him. He is so serious when it comes to Jewel and the possibility of their relationship. He is also understanding when it comes to her fears. He's any readers dream guy.


    Have you listened to any of B.J. Harrison’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of his narrations in the past Nraden series. I love how his voice just draws you in to the story, it's like you are part of the Braden world.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely, and I was sad when it came to an end.
