My dreams constantly haunt me, whether I’m asleep or awake.

Six months ago, my life veered off course when my fiancée disappeared with no explanation.

The partying lifestyle I'd adopted to cope, ended in an accident that left my body as broken as my heart. To make matters worse, I’ve managed to run off countless physical therapists in charge of the in-home rehabilitation I

Evie Drae
This entire series has been one that just rips at your heartstrings from the word go. Meant to be Family is absolutely no different. Even though Connor starts out a bit brash and difficult, every single one of his actions is forgivable and entirely understandable. After all, he lost the woman of his dreams without being given a reason why, and then he found himself involved in a harrowing car accident that leaves him with nightmares and a powerful drive to find out how the other accident victims ...more

Absolutely adored this story! Although, I love every one of Amelia Foster's books, so it wasn't surprising when I dove in head first and didn't come up for air until her patented HEA!!
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)




When Kelsey makes the decision to end things with Connor, she knows it's what's best for him. Too bad Connor doesn't feel the same. Now she's back, only Connor's changed. Seemingly no longer the tenderhearted man she loved (loves), he's grumpy and angry. Kelsey's the last person he wants but she's the only rehab therapist who can heal him. Will Connor ever find out why she left him with no reason?

This is a banner day for me - 2 tearjerkers in one review day is 2 too many! But, though tra

This is the third book in the series and the first one that I have read. It was a very touching and wonderful story about loss and second chances. Connor and Kelsey were a couple for 6 years and due to one unforeseen circumstance, she left him without a reason why. She comes back into his life when he is at his lowest and when they are finally able to talk, she is able to tell him why she left. She thought it was better for him but in reality, it wasn’t. This story was so good and it was nice to ...more

The third book in the series brings Conor and Kelsey's story. It's a second chance romance with all the emotions and issues they will need to overcome. The author does a wonderful job developing their relationship and moves it fluidly with her descriptive scenes. It's a beautiful love story and I enjoyed reading. I would recommend this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

The Carlisle men are some pretty special guys, once they realize the error or their ways.

This story focuses on Connor but I was excited to see tidbits of Tanner & Izzy and Wyatt & Georgia from the first two books in this series.  While you don't have to read those books to enjoy this one, some of the past that is mentioned will make a little more sense if you have read the first two books.

Connor and Kelsey have been together for a very long time after meeting at college.  They endure a lot toget

Firstly just to start with saying I adore this whole series. The first book was brilliant, and then it got even better with the second and I can safely say once again, it’s just gotten better with the third. This is definitely my favourite of the series. Connor and Kelsey take you on a whirlwind journey of emotions. There’s so much depth to the characters, they aren’t one dimensional or black and white. They are flawed, complex, relatable and just damn lovable. When characters are written well a ...more

These Carlisle men are pretty special. This story's about Connor and he's my favorite Carlisle so far. It was great to see bits and pieces of the previous couples; that being said, if you want to understand some of the dynamics, I'd highly recommend you read the first two books first. Anyways, back to this book, Connor and Carlisle meet in college and go through a lot together. Their relationship, in spite of their differences, appears to be successful until Kelsey walks out the door. Their stor ...more

A lack of communication can cause so much damage

Meant To Be Family is the third book in the Meant To Be Series Book by Amelia Foster. This is the story about Connor and Kelsey. They were college sweethearts and then got engaged with a future mapped out together. But suddenly and without explanation Kelsey leaves and Connor is shattered. Trying to cope her turns to bars and alcohol, a lot of alcohol. But the other women do not enter the picture as every time he picks someone up he just cannot do

MEANT TO BE FAMILY – Book 3
The story has pain, secrets, second chances, and heartbreak. This is Kelsey and Connor’s story. These two are in love but she walks away. She has her reasons but didn’t tell him. When they meet again, they try for a second time, but will it work with all the hurts of the past.

I struggled with connecting to all the characters in this series at one time or another. At some points the stories dragged, and I had to put the story down and come back to it. Might just

Amelia Foster is a new to me author, and while I'm somewhat miffed that it took me so long, I'm also glad that I started with the emotionally charged Meant to be Family. The feels were off the chart, and I spent my time trying not to cry throughout, as it's a second chance romance at it's finest. It's the story of Connor & Kelsey. There were each other's everything at one time, but Kelsey made the unilateral decision to end things for whatever reason (I can't tell you why). Well, it blew up in h ...more

A truly emotional second chance romance. 💞💓💖💞

When Connor is injured in a serious car crash and has to learn to walk again, Kelsey, a physical therapist, becomes his last chance at doing rehab in-home versus an inpatient rehab facility.

Six years ago, six months ago

Six years ago, good boy Connor fell for Kelsey in college. Six months ago, she ghosted on him and he spiraled out of control, drowning his sorrows. He tried to hook up with a dozen other girls (but chickened out and I didn’t care for that, shows total lack of judgment in trying to take home randoms).
He ends in a crash and needs physical therapy.
It’s Kelsey who can fix him internally and externally.
Their story is told in past and present. I didn’t care for what Kelse

I'm a new reader to Amelia Foster and I thoroughly enjoyed this second chance romance. Connor and Kelsey are the perfect pairing and definitely stole my heart.

When Kelsey walked away from her fiance for reasons you will just have to read about it devastated him. Connor's life began to spiral and when things take a definite turn for the worst Connor and Kelsey once again cross paths.

Kelsey thinks she is doing what’s best for Connor but is it? When Connor’s fiancé up and leaves his life veers off path until and accident leaves him hurt. The one person he thought he would never get answers from appears back into his life. Will Kelsey give him the answers he longs to know? Will the answers he has longed for bring more heartache? I loved this book. It is a very good story of love and some of the things that other couples face. I would love to read more. I highly recommend.

The books in this series just keep getting better and better. Meant To Be Family (Meant To Be #3) is such a touching and beautiful second chance romance. Connor and Kelsey’s story was relatable, emotional, they went through so much and at times my heart broke for them. They were an amazing, charming couple and they more than deserved a HEA. I love the Carlisle boys and I’m looking forward to reading Dean’s book.

Meant To Be Family is the third book in the Meant To Be Series. This is a heartbreaking and emotional story about Connor and Kelsey's second chance for love. The characters are well developed, likable, and relatable. The storyline is well written and captured my attention from the first, with heartbreak, secrets, tragedy, redemption, forgiveness, and a wonderful second chance for love.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Kelsey disappears with a secret she can't share, destroying Connor in the process. He's out of control, and has a horrible accident. Kelsey's the only one who can fix him, inside and out. Remarkable story of forgiveness and redemption. The characters are so real and well developed. And perfect together. The story flows and is easy to read, just so emotional. I enjoyed their journey back together.

This is the first book I've read from his author... and btw it won't be the last. I've just realized it's the third installment in this series ... sooo I think I need to go back and read the rest.
But onto this book.
It has a swoon worthy theme while still pulling at the heart strings. The perfect combination of both.
Let me just say I luv Connor.

This is such a fabulous book. This second chance romance between two people with so much emotion and who think so much less of themselves than they are worth is just incredible. It works so well with the serious but can also stand alone, but it's just lovely and sweet and features the best, sweetest HEA ever. You so want to read this with lots of tissues, but in a good way!
