Incredible book. Loved this like I love all of Melissa's books! This was my favorite of the Bradens.

I am editing this to include a bit more about this wonderful love story and the safety info. Ran out of time late last night.

Jack, our delectable hero, is a widower. He is gorgeous, thirty-seven, ex military and now teaches wilderness survival and pilots his own plane to get his clients in and out of the wilderness. He is angry, so very angry but it's more than that. He was married for ten years a
Audiobook: Narrator - B.J. Harrison

Another wonderful narration by Mr. Harrison. He is officially the voice of Love and the Bradens for me! This was a clear narration, easy to follow and understand with distinctive voices and a performance that added the much needed emotion when needed.

I really enjoyed this story and to be honest, I didn’t think I would. Going in, I had not read the blurb and I did not know this hero had a deceased wife. That’s a trope that I usually avoid because it can be trick

Disclosure: I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are completely my own.

My FAVORITE book of the series! We’ve seen Savannah Braden over the past few books, as she’s the only sister of the sexy Braden men.

Savannah is a successful attorney in Manhattan, who has had bad luck with men. To ‘find’ herself she heads on a weekend survival retreat and meets some interesting characters. My favorite character being hard-ass Jack Remington. Sexy, moody, walled-off,

He has HUGE HUGE issues but somehow they meet, fall in love, get past all the problems he hasn't been able to deal with in TWO YEARS AND get engaged in a WEEK? I'm skeptical. ...more

I was so excited when I found out that this book was all about Savannah! After watching Braden brother after Braden brother find their love and happy ending, I could not wait to see the same happen for their sister!

Entertainment attorney Savannah has an awful breakup with a cheating man and does what every woman wants to do. She takes off on a trip to get her mind right. While on her camping trip she runs into the smokin' hot Jack Remmington and the heat between them could start a forest fire!

I was quickly engrossed in the lives of Jack and Savannah and caught up in their whirlwind love story. Bursting With Love is a story that deals with how we deal with our inner demons and self-perceived wrongs. Watching Jack fight through his past hurts, wrongs and demons to embrace true love was very moving. I loved how Melissa weaved in the reconciliation with his family and their own family barriers that had to be dealt with. As with all of the novels in this series, Bursting With Love can be ...more

Love in Bloom

All of the Love in Bloom series books are very good and well written. I really have enjoyed reading them. I would recommend these books to anyone who enjoys reading about love, life, friends and family.

This is second book that I read written by Melissa Foster. I think that this book is better then Game of Love, but I still didn't like it.
At the beginning the book seemed interesting, but somehow I just lost the interest.

Yeah, if I hadn’t already fallen in love with the Savannah character from all the previous books (I saved her story until last) I probably wouldn’t even give this one three stars. Savannah had become my favorite secondary character and maybe my favorite Braden over the course of this series. In no small part I’m sure because I’m a guy. So I was really looking forward to reading her story. I think subconsciously was trying to save the best for last.

Beautiful, strong and extremely capable Manhattan attorney Savannah Braden has had it with her on again off again boyfriend country music star Connor Dean. Questioning why she took him back after cheating on her multiple times, she decides to get away at a survivor camp in the mountains, hoping to rebuild her confidence and get her head and heart on straight. She doesn’t need a man in her life, but watching her brothers fall in love makes her question when will it be her turn?

After dumping her cheating boyfriend, Savannah runs away to a survivalist weekend camp with a gorgeous but irritable and brooding guide named Jack Remington. Although leery of opening herself to the possibility of being hurt by love, Savannah can't fight both her powerful pull towards Jack and the challenge of getting under his skin at every t ...more

Anyone who is familiar with this series or Melissa Foster can tell where this is going, but OH MY….it was hot and fun getting there.

Throughout the Snow Sisters Series, the men have been hot, sexy and romantic. Jack is all those things, but he is also rough and tough with a lot more baggage than the other men. At first I had a hard time warming up to Jack. He came across as rude, obnoxious, and downright uncaring. Then I started getting glimpses of his true self, the self from before the acciden

Savannah Braden has finally ended things with her on-again off-again, country music star boyfriend. Struggling to regain her footing and confidence in herself she decides to do a survivor boot camp in the mountains. Always friendly and outgoing Savannah is taken aback when she meets their devastatingly handsome, but uptight (to the point of being rude), guide for their adventure. Fearing this would be another bad choice for her she tries to ignore the sparks that fly between them.

I was torn on how many stars I wanted to give this book. I love the romance between Savannah and Jack, but as the the author herself mentioned in the story, it was quick and fast! But the full speed romance was not what I had an issue with, but the way Jack quickly went through the steps of "change" in his life.

I agree that there are times when a timetable does not really work for measuring when/how to fall in love. My issue with Jack is the quick turnaround after 2 years of lack of communicati

How long is too long when you’re grieving? When you’re racked with guilt & pain? Jack Remington’s live fell apart when his wife went to the store on a rainy night & didn’t come back. Jack was first at the scene & the guilt of not running this errand for his wife ate him alive. He’s isolated himself from everyone he loves, & that loves him, for two years now.

Savannah Braden is tired of being cheated on. She can’t believe she keeps taking her boyfriend back. Not this time. This time it’s over. Sh

I enjoyed this book as I have the other books of this series. Savannah's story was a quick story with a lot of underlying issues that her character and Jack's character needed to work through but it was a good and realistic story. Their characters had explosive chemistry together and I felt that Jack and Savannah were a good fit together as a couple. The plot of the story was fast moving but flowed well. In the audio version, the narrator did well with the book in that he kept the plot flowing w ...more

It's been awhile since Melissa Foster has broken my heart, but she has managed to do it in this book. Jack's story is so heartbreaking, I had tears rolling down my face. I am so glad Savannah was his bright light in the darkness. I'm glad her sense of family made him want to reconnect with his family. And I'm really glad he and his dad had their come to Jesus conversation.

Having listened to the Remington series before listening to the Bradens, I had no idea about Jack's history. Like I said, Jac

One of my favorite things about all audio books is he deals you hear that you might have missed when reading. It was also nice to come back to these two. Of course this also starts the whole Remington side of books.

With this book, which I had a hard time putting down, I laughed, cried & even caught myself holding my hand over my heart. It was so breath taking. I can't imagine what Jack went through, losing his wife in a car accident, but reading it was like feeling what he went through & yes, I cried. I loved how him & Savannah totally got each other. They helped each other get past awful things in the past & open up to each other. I can relate, that's how my husband & I were for each other
