    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.

    "Another winning story from Ms Foster "

    This is the fourth Melissa Foster book I have read in a row. I just love the way she creates the most beautiful ideas to weave a wonderful story. Her storytelling is perfect, and the narrator, BJ Harrison is absolutely enthralling. The sex scenes are not only beautifully described, but very tastefully written. I am so enjoying these books and can't wait to start listening to the next one!

    "Healed and if feels so good!!!"
    What did you love best about Healed by Love: Nate Braden?

    This was an amazing book, I love how the author dove into a tough emotional subject and you really felt it as a listener. You felt the love and pain the tears and frustration, the narrator did an amazing job changing from characters and inflections in voices and tones it was spot on.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Jewels character, always wanting to take care of everything and everyone. I resonate with her on so many levels so it was easy to immerse myself in this story.


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

    No I have not but this was a great performance by far.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me cry when Nate and Jewel recalled the memories of Rick and the torment Nate was going through internally whenever he thought of what his role in Rick's death was.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an amazing addition to the Braden family of stories. Melissa has out done herself again. Even though this was one person doing all the voices/characters he did an outstanding job and really sold me on the authenticity of each character. I got lost in the story and could envision it in my head as he narrated the story. An outstanding performance all in all.

    "Truely Healed By Love"
    Where does Healed by Love: Nate Braden rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It was my first one...I really enjoyed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jewell. I know Nate had some troubles too, but how she carried so many things in her heart. Helping her mother after her fathers death. Her siblings. Mourning her brothers death, and missing to one person she loved but couldn't tell


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When he found her in the woods, and carried her to his house.


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

    It was my first one so I had to get use to someone reading to me. He had a very soft soothing voice.


    Any additional comments?

    Melissa Foster is one of the best. I enjoy reading all of her books and now reading them too.

    "Beautiful Story"


    Healed by Love is one of the best friends to lovers story you are going to find. Jewel and Nate have been rotating around each other and their feelings for each other for years. Nate has to get over personal issues that occurred during his time in the military and Jewel has to learn to trust her family and give up some control. In the end they are able to help each other through their issues but do they bring them together? Read Healed by Love if their healing brought love.

    The audiobook was ok, at times I had a little difficulty discerning dialogue versus plot/thought from the narrator. I had trouble with his "female" voice. I thought he was a great Nate, just had some issues with his Jewel.

    "Love truly does heal!"

    I had read Healed by Love a long time ago but was so excited when Melissa Foster's books came to audio that I wanted to re-"listen" to one of my favorite Braden stories. I loved Nate and Jewel for many reasons – his reluctance to show his love for his best friend’s younger sister and her willingness to put her family – mother and younger siblings – first before going after the love she so desperately wants. Listening to BJ Harrison recreate the story I so loved brought depth to the characters I had envisioned in my head when reading it. Listening to Nate and Jewel’s love unfold and both let go of guilt (his return from the military where her brother was killed in action and her desire to care for her family above all else) and embrace the future was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to listen to more of Melissa Foster’s great Braden romances!

    Story
    "Fantastic Audio Book!"
    Would you listen to Healed by Love: Nate Braden again? Why?

    I am still fairly new to audio books, but I truly did enjoy listening to Healed by Love by Melissa Foster! The narrator, B.J. did a great job of portraying the characters and made you feel connected to them throughout the story.


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

    I loved the very beginning when Nate shows up in the woods and rescues Jewel. He is trying to hard to hold back and not say/do what he is really feeling. They're both so blinded by their feelings for one another, and have been denying them for so long, that it is almost as if they are completely oblivious to how the other person feels. It's almost funny!


    Which character – as performed by B.J. Harrison – was your favorite?

    Nate was definitely my favorite character performed by B.J. Harrison! He made all of the characters come to life, but his portrayal of Nate was so true to life. Nate is tough and rugged, but also caring and sensitive on the inside. He cares deeply for those in his life, and wants to make sure everyone is taken care of. Jewel is such an important part of his life, but he feels he is betraying Rick by even considering acting on his feelings for her. Sigh. It was great to watch Jewel help him heal and move past his demons. :)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book definitely tugged at my heart strings. I don't have any close family in the military, nor have I ever been in a relationship with anyone that has been deployed, but I cannot even begin to imagine the things they deal with while away and once they get home. Guilt can be an ugly thing to try and deal with on your own, and it can be almost impossible for some people to understand the things you have seen, done and dealt with while you were away. That was a huge thing that I reacted to throughout the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    Healed by Love was all around a 5 Star book for me! Reading the book allows you to almost make up the characters and scenes in your own mind, but the audio book takes things to a whole new level. It gives you a glimpse of what the author really sees when they write. What the characters may sound like, how they talk to one another, and the heat arcing between them.

    Such an enjoyable read!
