I can’t compare the two Lovers

When I was offered a chance to read and review Lovers at Heart Reimagined, I didn’t hesitate to sign up. Sure, I did look at the “reimagined” part and questioned WHY? But, as the author stated, she felt there was more needed to be given to the original Lovers, and she wanted to give it. Who am I to question whether it was needed or not? I hadn’t read the first Lovers at Heart so I couldn’t tell you the changes or if it’s better or more enhanced. I can tell you that

Lovers At Heart is the first book in Melissa's romance series following one family falling in love and having sizzling romances. In this case, the love is between Trent Braden who is a successful businessman and Max Armstrong who organises festivals. It was quite slow-moving and at times, the characters felt a little off to me. It is quite steamy and now learning that this is actually a re-written version of an original story, I'm wondering whether I should have read the first versi

I’ll be honest here. I’m getting really confused with all the characters and series that Melissa Foster has. She has spin-offs of spin-offs and really, they are basically the same to me. So I am struggling to find what makes each series unique other than the setting or characters.

This book is part of The Bradens series and is part of the larger Love in Bloom too. (Do you see what I mean when I say it gets confusing?) Another thing that kept throwing me off was the hero and the heroine. I d

I absolutely loved the first book, so I was not sure what Melissa Foster was going to do to reimagine it. Well, after reading it, I can say she made a wonderful book, even better. It was great seeing both Treat and Max taking care of things from their past, because it is correct that many times things in our past influence our present. It is a true love story, and as it is with life, it rarely flows smoothly without hitting some rocks along the way, but I love a happy ending. I also love the str ...more

DNF. Ended at 34%. My TBR list is way too big to spend time on books that are slow moving and not all encompassing. I liked Max and Treat enough, it just was sort of boring. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Lovers at Heart Reimagined is Treat Braden and Max Armstrong’s story. The sizzling chemistry between Treat and Max drew me into the story. The emotion, passion and pure romance of their romance kept me turning the pages.

I liked that Treat and Max got to know each other as they planned a double wedding in Nassau. The couple talked for several months over the phone as they planned a wedding and the chemistry between them sizzled. Loved that they both had romantic fantasies about each other. They m

Four years ago I read the original Lovers at Heart by Melissa Foster and loved it, honestly at that time I didn't think the story needed improvement at all, I was a new fan of Melissa's and I was loving everything she was writing. So when I heard that she was rewriting Lovers at Heart I was both confused and intrigued, wondering what she was going to change and what would remain the same. Now, rememb

I was so happy to see Treat and Max get a reboot. Although I loved the first story of Treat and Max, I think the retaling of one of my favorite couples, was perfection. Just a little more heat and I think the storyline flowed a little easier this second time around.

Whether you are reading Treat and Max for the first time or tenth time, they are absolutely one of my favorites in the series.

So, I have to start by saying that the original Lovers at Heart was my first Melissa Foster book, and I loved Treat and Max back then, they have always been one of my favorite couples. When I heard that their story was being redone, I was curious, but I had to revisit this couple, after all, if the author felt a need to retell their story, I needed to know why. So, now I’m even more in love with Treat and Max then ever before. This is that couple that gives you hope, the couple you think of when ...more

Lovers at Heart, Reimagined by Melissa Foster (Love in Bloom: The Bradens) I have a confession to make, I have not read Treat and Max’s original story, so how this is re-imagined I am not sure, but one thing I am sure off is that this is a truly heartwarming story of second chances by the very talented Melissa Foster. 
Her Love in Bloom universe is immense and each book is different but all have characters that are real, relatable and easy to fall for.

How often do you get the chance to visit with old friends? Lovers at Heart, Reimagined felt like going home again. Max and Treat have always held a special place within my heart. After all they are the reason my love affair with Melissa Foster got it's start. At first meeting two out of sync personalities make a deep connection. The match is less than ideal, but hopelessly overpowering. When facing forever, will they allow themselves to be vulnerable? Or will fear get in the way of what their he ...more

Time to be honest here. I don't understand why this book is called reimagined when it's practically the same story. I don't know how many differences it has from the original, but I just finished "A love so sweet" by Addison Cole aka MF alter ego and it was the same story. I don't know if changes were made for that book also, but I feel like I read the same book twice. It wasn't bad, but I once I finished ALSS I began this one, so it felt like it was just a repeat reading. So basically I am goin ...more

How do you give an old book that has been reimagined a review that does not give away the new reimagined possibilities? I am not sure, but I will tell you that from someone that has read the original and the clean-romance version, this one has that something extra that you didn't know you were missing, but somewhere within you were wanting to know more about. Treat and Max were a puzzle that needed to be put together. They both intrigued you from the start of there meeting for the first time in ...more

I haven't read the original Lovers at Heart so I honestly cannot tell you how or what is different in this edition. I know the author explains her reimagined theme to be a more mature spin of the original. Without reading the original, I couldn't tell you what that means but I can tell you I enjoyed reading Trent and Max's journey a lot. It was easy to read and it made me feel good.

Max and Trent both have their own personal demons that they need to slay (for lack of a better term) in order for t

Have you ever read a book that, when everything was said and done, you can honestly say you enjoyed even though there were some things that happened in it that had you going ‘Really? Seriously???’ and had you arguing with that little voice in your head over the rating which makes it difficult to get the words for a review out?

Well, THIS is that book for me. Overall, I really did enjoy this story. I got sucked in to the MC’s journey and NEEDED to see how they worked out all of

I've been waiting to go into the life of Treat Braden more ever since I first met him. I knew Melissa Foster would eventually get to telling this story but I had to wait patiently. I had read the original Lovers at Heart but, like Melissa, felt it was missing something. Now I've read this reimagined version, I'm craving more.

Treat Braden is the oldest in his family. While I am definitely not male, I am the oldest so can relate in many ways. You feel a responsibility for your younger siblings whe

I read the original Lovers at Heart years ago and I remember loving it then--this same holds true for the new "Reimagined" edition. The charactors are even more human then I remember and their background stories are more in depth. Melissa Foster did an amazingly good job with this one. Although I remembered parts of it-it was different enough that it kept me reading anyway. I tried looking for my original review-of course I could not find it!

I had already been completely pulled into Treat and Max's 'will they, won't they' relationship when I read the original version a few years ago, but I am so pleased I got another chance to read their story, this time with the benefit of a more in-depth understanding of their first meeting and their relationship. I hadn't really missed it before but once I had read this version it made things connect much more easily for me.

For Treat and Max, it was definitely love at first sight, but due to the

5 Star review of Lovers At Heart: Reimagined (Love In Bloom: The Bradens & by Melissa Foster

Not having read the previous edition of this book I went in with an open mind. I was excited to learn about the book that started it all with Trent Braden and Max Armstrong’s story.
Treat had no interest in finding love,happy with the casual hook ups he has had, but when he met Max it was like lightening striking, such was their connection.
However it is not all smooth sailing as Max refuses to answer his

Like all of Melissa Fosters works, this book again didn't disappoint. We get a more in-depth look into Max and Treat with the passion that sets their world a blaze. Max thinks that she is broken because of what happened in her past. Treat shows her that is not the case, everyone makes mistakes and you grow from them. Treat also lets her in on his painful past involving his brother. It's always a learning curve.
This quote from the book sums up their relationship perfectly " We all have broken pi

Oh, Melissa! She has an incredible method of hitting my soft spots to make tears fall, followed by giggles that warm my heart. I didn't read Max and Treat's story the first time around; but the Reimagined version was sweet and fulfilled every romantic/sweet notion I have about reading Melissa's books. Max is full of spunk yet because of her past, she keeps it hidden -- until Treat brings it out in her. He is incredibly kind, romantic, gentle, and patient with her. The Braden family shows us that ...more

Max and Treat's story is the beginning of it all for me. I remember I was browsing through my favorite book vendor as I wanted to read books in English. I found out this Lovers at Heart and fell in love with Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom world. I have read all the Braden's story and always wondered about Max and Treat.

I confess that when Melissa Foster informed in her Facebook page that she was re-imagining their story and giving them a second look, I was kind of afraid. But, all my fears were

I LOVE the Bradens. They're smart, sweet, sexy and almost too good to be true. This story shows a very human side to Treat, and it's a great read. Max is the perfect heroine - smart, sassy, who knows what she wants and refuses to take anything less. Treat has his work cut out to get to her very guarded heart, but their journey together is heartwarming and will leave you breathless.

It was such a great opportunity to rejoin Treat and Max with their story giving me a homey feeling with good friends. The pair, despite their differences and issues still remain such a well written couple with chemistry that was off the charts. The two over came their issues with their pasts, Treat with his guilt at leaving home and building a successfuil life as opposed to living out his life on his family's ranch and Max for working through her issues with a past relationship.

This is the re-vamped version of “Lovers at Heart” where we see Treat and Max’s love for each other and the chemistry they have too. There are so many emotions going round with these two that it was nice to see a couple just work there way through them rather than give up on each other.
Treat is so kind and understanding and he gives Max just what she wants and needs. And then all of Treats family accept Max into the f

Though I must admit that I haven't read Lovers at Heart (yet), I liked this book!
How could I not when Treat thinks things like this:

"The only woman he wanted was right there in front of him, and he never took his eyes off her, afraid if he did, she might not be there when he looked again."

And boy, isn't he sweet and considerate with Max 😍 ...ops, and ALPHA!😉

Treat and Max have a swoon worthy romance with a couple of bumps along the way. After an intense and immediate connection, a misunderstanding pulls them apart. When a chance encounter brings them together again, sparks fly and this time there's no holding back.

I fall more in love with love with each Melissa Foster book I read.

This is an amazing love story between Treat Braden and Max Armstrong. They overcome misunderstandings and painful pasts to get to their HEA.
