Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.
Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn't know how to stop doing what he does best.
When Blake walks into Danica's office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica's desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she's ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she's been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister's promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn't sure it's the right time to set her desires free.

Little does Danica know that walking into her office one morning will be the man that changes her life. Blake realizes that a number of changes need to occur in his life at the urging of his best friend and some tragic circumstances and Blake seeks out Dr. Snow to assist him in those changes and little does he know that including her in his life will actually change it more than he ever expected. Danica and Blake appear to be an unlikely couple but thy just might be what he other truly needs.
The reading by Mr. Harrison is incredible - I was lost in the world of the Snow sisters and Blake.
I am very much looking forward to the continuation and to see how Danica helps her sister through her upcoming life changes. Incredible, incredible novel that kept me engaged and hoping for more throughout.
Hopes and dreams, fears and insecurities
So now I know how Danica and Blake got together. And I got some insight into Chaz and Kaylie. We got to see hopes and dreams, and fears and insecurities. Each sister is their own person and have made choices, whether good or bad, that affect the other.
Blake is a manwh@re, but he doesn't know any other way to be. He wants to be better for Danica, but he's not sure how. Little does he know when he goes to a therapist, it's her. What prompted him to go to a therapist, you ask? The death of his best friend. Little did he know what was really going on in his best friend's life. And now Pandora's box has been opened.
Having listened to several other books in the Love In Bloom series, I have seen the crossover of the characters with others. So now I'm curious about the history that transpired between this book and the other books several years down the road.
As for the narration, BJ Harrison always does a bang up job on these books. I've enjoyed listening to him. I thought it would be difficult to listen to a man read me a romance, but he gets into the characters and you enjoy the story and forget about who is reading it to you.

Sisters in Love (Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters) Book 1 Melissa Foster
Narrated by B.J. Harrison
Therapist Danica Snow lives a life full of responsibility and rules, always playing it safe. So concerned with her professional appearance she even dresses beyond her years and is often judgmental. Her opposite iin every way s her own irresponsible sister Kaylie. She exudes confidence in spades, knowing how to dress and how to strut her stuff and can get any man she wants.
In her spare time Danica is a Big Sister to Michelle, a fifteen year-old girl living with her grandmother who has issues of her own to deal with. Over the course of the book you see changes in all three, as they are forced to confront the way they live their lives.
Handsome Blake Carter is player extraordinaire. Blake uses sex as a distraction from anything unpleasant in his life. His love 'em and leave 'em attitude eventually catches up with him when tragedy strikes and he loses his best friend, business partner and fellow acroskier Dave Tuft. Dave's death throws Blake and makes him question everything he thought he knew about himself.
Blake and Danica meet by accident, literally and it does not go well. Danica's presence stays with him and he can't forget her. He ends up becoming her patient having gotten the number from Dave prior to his death. Just a number, with no name. Unable to cope with the loss he schedules an appointment and thus begins their relationship, therapist and patient.
Neither can deny the immediate attraction, although they both try. As Danica helps Blake work through his own grief and bad choices, Danica starts to look inward at her own choices. She starts to question if she's really living her life to its fullest.
Blake works through whether or not he was a good enough friend to Dave, can he help Dave's wiidow Sally and son Rusty? Can he become the kind of man he wants to be? Can he win the respect and love of Danica?
Danica comes to some major realizations of her own regarding Kaylie, Michelle, Blake and herself. I loved listening to their story as each character made the decision to live their true life and bravely move forward.
It amazes me how Melissa Foster made you believe in Blake's redemption and root for him and Danica. This book will make you cheer, cry and feel their transformation along with them.
B.J. Harrison is one of my favorite narrators as he brings his own unique voice to the story. His tone and inflection pulls you into the story.
