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.
Danica & Blake
Sisters in Love
By: Melissa Foster
Narrated by: B.J. Harrison
I have listened to a lot of Melissa Foster and it is so much fun listening to the first book in her Love In Bloom series! Where it all started! Meeting the Snow sisters, and hearing Danica's story was a pleasure! She is a relatively even keeled, ordinary woman, at least she keeps herself under the wire. Until she literally bumps into Blake's elbow. Blake is a player, never having a problem finding a woman. When tragedy strikes, he realizes he needs to change his ways, and when he goes to seen help, Danica is his therapist. And our fun begins. Their journey to finding love is not an easy one. And with such a cast of characters, we have a blast as they all make an imprint on their lives. It's realistic as Foster always includes relevant issues. She masterfully educates us with entertainment, but never diminishes the importance of her stories. I loved the inclusion of the Big Sister program and can see how this launched the Love in Bloom series. It's so easy to fall in love!
BJ Harrison is a fabulous storyteller and a better narrator could not have been picked to tell this story. He has a calming voice and is easy on the ears. I enjoy his performances and look forward to more.
Sisters in Love: Snow Sisters
I received this audiobook free for an honest review. The author is amazing. This story covers all the feel good bases. Danika is a psychologist and a big sister, also working with her real sister's issues. Blake is a gorgeous man with "player" issues whose best friend/partner dies. One of the things I liked best was how Danika works as a psychologist and how she handles her patients, family and friends with her professional suggestions/recommendations. This is a very sweet love story. A decent amount of sex to keep the reader/listener interested and not be raunchy. The narrator did a great job with the characters. His distinct male/female voices were done tastefully.
I really enjoyed this book. I haven't read a lot of Melissa Foster's books yet but I have enjoyed the ones that I have read so I was pretty excited to give this one a try. I found it really easy to slip into this story and really enjoyed getting to watch Danica and Blake get to know each other. I found this book to be a very easy listen.
Danica is a therapist and she has always been the responsible one. She is really conservative with just about everything in her life from what she wears to how she behaves. Blake owns a ski shop with his best friend. He is also known as a player. He has no trouble finding women to keep him company and he seems to have company quite often. When tragedy strikes and his world is turned upside down, Blake finds that he wants more out of life.
I really liked the characters in this book. Danica and Blake were both great and I loved the fact that they grew a lot over the course of the story. I really felt like I was on a journey with both of them and they were very different people at the end of the book than they were at the beginning. I thought that they had wonderful chemistry with each other and I thought that they made a great pair. I thought that the secondary characters were equally well done and I am really excited to read their stories in future installments in the series.
I thought that B.J. Harrison did a fantastic job with the narration. This was the first time that I have had the opportunity to listen to this narrator and I found him very easy to listen to. I thought that he did a great job with all of the character voices and I thought that he was able to add a lot of emotion into his reading. I think that his narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this book to fans of contemporary romance. I thought that this was a wonderfully emotional romance that was filled with wonderful characters. I look forward to reading more of Melissa Foster's work soon.
I received a copy of this audiobook from the author/publicist.
