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 Colorado Mountains. 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.
Throwback to Love with the Braden’s
What a fabulous love story. I have been fortunate enough to both read and listen to Savannah and Jacks love story. This love story brings me back to the first few of Melissa’s Books and really allowed me to fall back in love with the Braden’s again. Oh if only finding true love in the real world was so easy! But if I can’t have it as my reality I’d love to be swept off my feet by Jack in my fictional world! Definitely consider reading or listening to this awesome story. It’s worth every minute!
Another well-done romance from Melissa Foster! I have been slowly working my way through the Love in Bloom series and I was excited to read Savannah’s story. This book was exactly what I have come to expect from this author with a straightforward romance with enough heat to keep things very interesting. This book can definitely be read as a stand-alone but a lot of the characters featured in the earlier books play a pretty big role so reading the series in order would be ideal.
Savannah is the only daughter in the large Braden family. She seems to keep picking the wrong men so she has sworn them off for now and is escaping to a survivor wilderness retreat. Jack runs the survivor camp and notices Savannah right away. Jack has been lost for the past two years since his wife died and has a lot of work to do for himself in order to move on. Savannah may just be what he needs to come alive once again.
Savannah and Jack had a lot of chemistry. They fell for each other pretty quickly but it seemed to work in this story. There were a few things in the story that were kind of unbelievable but I just went with it since it is a fictional story. I did like how they talked about the things that they had been through and were able to support each other as they worked through their issues.
B.J. Harrison continues to do a great job in narrating this series. I decided to speed the narration up to 1.25 x speed which worked perfectly for me. I thought that he did a great job with the various character voices and I liked that he was able to add a lot of emotion to the narration. I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to more of this narrator’s work in the future.
I would recommend this book to others. I think that this was an enjoyable read with just enough heat. I can’t wait to read more of this series!
I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.
Jack & Savannah!
Savannah Braden has sworn off men. After a broken heart, she takes some time off to go to a survival camp. Jack Remington is the handsome yet grumpy guide for the excursion. His wife died in an accident several years earlier, and the burden of guilt has him hiding in the wilderness. There is something about Savannah though that has heart stirring. Once again Melissa Foster captivates me with a story of relevant issues and a building love to enjoy. Jack is a mess, and Foster compassionately takes us on his journey. Heartbreaking and so clearly painful, it lets us feel everything he is going through. Savannah is a strong woman, and she has some things she needs to work through. I enjoyed these two as they both strive to be together. Plus we get glimpses of Braden family members, from siblings to cousins as well as getting a look at the Remington family. I love the family feel, it's like coming home with each story.
BJ Harrison is the voice of the Bradens and I love his easy pace and feel. Each voice is distinguishable and he makes the narration a relaxing, pleasure to hear. I also love that he keeps his voices consistent from book to book as family comes in. He is fun to listen to.
