BURSTING WITH LOVE
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing January 2014
Published by World Literary Press
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. Powerless to ignore the heated glances and mounting sexual tension, Savannah begins to reassess her hasty decision.
After losing his wife in a tragic accident, Jack Remington found solace in the mountains of Canada. This solitary existence allows him to wallow in his guilt and punish himself for having made a decision that he believes cost his wife her life. He never expected to want to return to the life he once knew—but then again, he never expected to meet gorgeous, stubborn, and competitive Savannah Braden.
One passionate kiss is all it takes to crack the walls the two have built to protect themselves, and allow love to slip in. While Jack fights his way through his guilt, and struggles to get back into the lives of those he left behind, Savannah is there to help him heal, and together they nurture hope that they’ve finally found their forever loves.
I really enjoyed the last Melissa Foster book I read, Sisters in Love, and blogged my review of this contemporary romance here, so I was looking forward to reading Bursting with Love. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first. Part of it may have been the sex scenes at the beginning of the book that caused the problem for me. I never quite connected with the characters, either. Another reader may have a different experience.
There were moments in the book that I found beautifully written and thought-provoking, like, “You have ten minutes to be angry, ten minutes to be sad, ten minutes to be anything other than thankful that you have an eleventh minute to look forward to.” If you’re a fan of Melissa Foster, you’ll probably enjoy this book.
