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+**


Melissa Foster has done it again. She’s written another great book on relationships including sibling relationships full of love, regrets, fears, and rivalry, and a delightful love story full of misunderstandings, learning to trust, and steamy love scenes.

If you’ve read the previous books in the Love of Bloom series you will recognize Treat Braden (Blake’s cousin) and Max (Chaz’s assistant). You will find yourself rooting for them. They both have issues they need to deal with before they can find themselves able to commit to a relationship. Melissa Foster has made this true to life and makes you feel like you are really there.

I’ve always found it funny how people interpret the same event in different ways, even in families. Treat and his siblings each have their own perspectives of events when their mother passes away. They all have their own issues whether it be anger, insecurity, regret, etc. More than 20 years after Treat’s mother passes away, he is ready and willing to confide his insecurities and regrets to the rest of his family. The family dynamics that Melissa Foster portrays are so true to life that you truly feel like you are a fly on the wall watching the family.

While this is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone book. This is the first book in the series about the Bradens. So, you are not missing much. Basically all of the characters are new except for Blake and Max. However, there was not much information given about them in the previous books.

As with other stories in this series, there are some very steamy love scenes. If you find this offensive, then you might want to refrain from reading this book. Parents may not want their children reading this book even if they are a teenager.

I absolutely love Melissa Foster’s books, and this one did not disappoint. I was not as hooked as I was some of the other books, but that was barely noticeable. This is probably because I did not know the characters as much as I did in the previous books. I give this book 4 ½ stars out of 5.

So, head on over, and pick up a copy of the book, Lovers at Heart. You will not be disappointed. Make sure you have time to read because once you get started you will not want to put it down (and you will want to get started on the next book).

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.

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.

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.
