Publisher's Summary

The Remingtons are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series. Touched by Love is a USA Today best seller.

In Touched by Love...

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents and built a life in New York City and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream - being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely - a difficult task given his attraction to one of his coworkers.

When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

Janie & Boyd

Melissa Foster has always delivered fantastic characters in her books but Boyd and Janie are extraordinary. While they are strong people we don't realize just how strong and independent they both are as they overcome obstacles in this beautiful relationship. As their story unfolds we see how their individual pasts have molded them into the people they are today. I don't want to spoil a bit of this plot for you so I will only summarize to say that Janie has taken a fall in the subway and panics as she calls out for help. I felt tense as I continued reading about her dilemma until coworker Boyd realizes he has walked away with her phone and needs to return to the subway discovering that Janie has been injured. As Boyd helps her recover, their feelings grow for one another. This is a beautiful story of two people who find each other somewhat unexpectedly. Melissa Foster weaves magic in this book as various characters become part of the story. It must have taken a significant amount of research by the author to describe the challenges Janie experiences navigating the world. BJ Harrison’s narration was a pleasure to listen to. He created auditory interest with the voices he used for different characters. I loved this audiobook. A must read/listen. I hope it touches your heart as much as it touched mine.

Touched by Love..Boyd & Janie

Touched by Love is a story about trust, independence, friendships as well as fighting demons from a tragic past.

Janie, who is partially blind, lives independently in New York City with her best friend Kiki. She works as a technical write with aspirations of writing a romance novel. Boyd is a firefighter and paramedic working toward getting into medical school; he’s also fighting demons from a tragic past.

As a consultant at the same firm as Janie, Boyd was attracted to Janie but would not act on it due to leaving for medical school in the future. When Janie has an accident in the subway, Boyd comes to her rescue and is determined to take care of her until she is healed. As their relationship builds, Boyd needs to decide if Janie is more important than medical school. Janie is determined to help Boyd with his demons and prevent him from giving up his dream of attending medical school.

Another wonderful story from Melissa Foster.

5 Stars for Boyd and Janie!

It had been a while since I had first read the kindle version of this book, so getting to revisit these two characters in the audio version was a real treat. As always, BJ Harrison is a fantastic narrator that brings the characters to life in every book he narrates, and brings depth and emotion to each story. I found myself sucked in yet again by the story of Boyd and Janie from start to finish. Janie's strength and desire to be independent was so endearing, I wanted to be a part of the story, a part of their world, just so that I could be a friend of hers somehow!

While I always want to recommend the Kindle version of books first, i have to recommend the Audible version of Touched by Love by Melissa Foster first. Her stories and audio books are always very well done!

A Favorite by Melissa Foster

I have now found a new favorite book by Melissa Foster, and this says a lot about this book, because I have loved every one of her books that I have read, but this one is special. Janie is blind, but this does not define her. She is beautiful, inside and out, and her blindness has made her stronger and more independent. Then there is Boyd, a sexy fireman and EMT, that is hoping to get into medical school. He also has his own demons from his past, but he is the sweetest man. Their story will keep you reading and/or listening, even when you should be sleeping, or doing other things, but this book is so worth it. It makes you really think about a lot of things, but it at the same time is hot, romantic, and has a wonderful story. I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator, B.J. Harrison, does an outstanding job. He can do so much, just using his voice. I highly recommend this book, whether you read it, or listen to it.

Janie and Boyd- Love found in the subway

I loved listening to Touched by Love! How can you not love a book that features the Remingtons? Melissa Foster did it again! This is the story of Boyd and Janie. Janie is blind and falls off the subway platform. Who comes to her rescue and saves her life, Boyd of course. He goes to the ER with her and in the process falls in love. Boyd is caring, lovable and hunky. It is just a wonderful book to listen to from start to finish. I love the way that their relationship builds, even though there were sparks from the beginning. B.J. Harrison is a wonderful narrator. The way he speaks, you can just picture the layout right in front of you!! Great job Melissa and B.J!!

LOVED IT!
Absolutely wonderful story
The Heroine is such a strong person, considering she is blind. I am so glad that Melissa made her this strong and not a wimp that is scared of her own shadow. She is absolutely perfect for Boyd, who happens to be a hot fireman.
Could not put it down. Great job AGAIN Melissa..

Love BJ Harrison

Independent Love

I LOVED listening to this story after having already read it...and what can I say about Janie and Boyd other than...WOW!! What a beautiful story between two people who have more in common than what they first believe. Boyd is tortured from the loss of his parents years earlier, where he suffered externally, as well as internally. It took everything within him to allow Janie to see the real him. But his overprotective ways cause tension in their perfect relationship.
Janie is fiercely independent, despite her blindness. She doesn't let that stop her from doing anything she wants to in order to move on with her life. She doesn't want ANYONE to treat her differently because of the simple fact that she cant see. She's comfortable with Boyd and what their relationship makes her feel. He doesn't hold her back and treats her normally, making extra effort to help her see life and the world around them. But then comes his overprotective nature that throws her for a loop and she doesn't know if she can move past it.
After an accident where she thought she lost the love of her life, they both agree to work on moving past their own issues to allow for their HEA to happen the way it should...Together!

Emotionally powerful story...

Touched by Love is book six in the Love in Bloom: The Remingtons series. Of all the books I have read or listened to lately, this one is by far the most powerful. The story felt so real, the emotions so potent. I enjoyed listening to this narrator, and I absolutely loved this story. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Touching story

I have been waiting for this book to come out for a while. Melissa Foster did not disappoint! This story makes you see love in a different light. It is very raw and emotional.

Boyd suffered a horrible tragedy as a child and has carried guilt from that ever since. He has secrets that he has kept bottled up never telling a soul. Then along come Janie.

Janie was born with a degenerative eye disease that has left her blind but very independent. Tragedy strikes when she falls and gets hurt relying on the help of Boyd to help her do simple tasks and maneuver around while she heals.

Sparks being to fly and Janie and Boyd begin to help each other heal from the eternal and external pain they both endure. BJ Harrison is the narrator and once again he hits it out of the park. He tells it in a way that you are able to invision how Janie sees the world. You will not be disappointed in this home run of a story.

A beautiful story

I never thought I would enjoy audiobooks, but I love them. They make it so easy to enjoy your book when it's difficult to read. The hours spent in the car travelling, have suddenly got so much better :)

The story of Boyd and Janie, is beautiful and touching. Janie is blind and trying to prove to everyone, including her parents, that it is not something that can hold her back. Boyd is fireman, with dreams of becoming a Doctor and is close to achieving his goal. When an accident threatens to change Janie's life and restrict her independence, for the first time she realises that she has to accept the help offered to her by Boyd. As they spend more time together, feelings deepen forcing Boyd to deal with some pain in his past he's been trying to keep hidden.

The voice of B. J. Harrison is very smooth and makes the experience of listening to the book, more enjoyable.

Loved it

If you could sum up Touched by Love in three words, what would they be?

Determined, passionate and independent

What other book might you compare Touched by Love to, and why?

Slope of love! Because it has another determined strong woman who doesn’t think she needs help, but finds it’s ok to lean on someone.

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

They are all good.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

We all need someone to lean on occasionally

Any additional comments?

Another great book from Melissa. Great that Janie is a strong independent woman and not made out to be a victim of her blindness.
