Sweet, Sexy Heart (Unabridged)
Discover the magic of New York Times best seller Melissa Foster's writing and see why millions of fans have fallen in love with the fiercely loyal and sassily sexy characters in the Love in Bloom big-family romance families. All Love in Bloom books can be enjoyed as stand-alone novels or as part of the larger series.
For this sweet bookstore owner, avoiding the charms of a famed football player-turned-author was supposed to be easy.... Funny, sinfully sexy, opposite-attracts romance.
Amber Montgomery is perfectly happy with her quiet life, running her bookstore, taking long walks with Reno, her Labrador retriever seizure-response dog, and spending time with her close-knit family. She’s never needed thrills the way some of her sisters have. In an effort to control her epilepsy, she tries to avoid anything that creates too much excitement or stress - including relationships.
When Amber hosts a book signing for famed athlete-turned-author Dash Pennington, he’s everything she’s spent her life avoiding: loud, aggressive, and far too handsome, as proven by the hordes of women who surround him everywhere he goes. Amber can’t ignore the sparks flying between her and Dash, but this is a no-brainer for her: Ignore their chemistry and hold her breath until he leaves town.
Dash Pennington has spent his life running. Running the ball in for a touchdown, running from town to town to appease his public relations reps, and running into the arms of too many women to count. He’s also an expert at protecting - his reputation, his sisters, and lately, his sanity. But he’s ready to make a change. When he comes to the sleepy little town of Oak Falls, Virginia, and witnesses the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen, living the life he craves, she refuses to have anything to do with him. But now that Dash has found the one thing he doesn’t want to run from, he’ll stop at nothing to win her over.
A great opposites-attract trope!
A book with lots of seetness and love from beginning to end!
Love love love

I loved this book! It hit home for me but not like you would think. My dog had epilepsy and all the signs and symptoms that Amber had my dog had as well. Melissa really did her homework when learning about epilepsy.
Amber has dealt with epilepsy for most of her life. She always has her trusty service dog Reno by her side and her alert necklace on incase of an episode. She knows what triggers episodes and tries to avoid those situations. Dash Pennington is a former NFL star turned author who is doing a book tour to promote his new book. His first stop on the tour is Ambers book store. When he meets Amber he is blown away by her and wants to know more about her.
He studies up on all things epilepsy so he knows what to do in the event something happens while he is with her. He wants to get Amber out of her little world she has stayed in and show her things that life can offer. Dash is a lover and protector and knows just how to make Amber feel happy safe and loved. Dash is totally swoon worthy and the type of hero everyone wants. These two characters bring out the best in each other. I have been waiting not very patiently for this book to release and Melissa Foster did not disappoint.
The audio version of this book is soo good. Tim Page and Meg Sylvan are the narrators and they really do this book justice. Their voice really fit the characters and they had me wanting to hear more and not wanting the book to end. This is a audio book that I would listen to again and again.
Dash and Amber FOREVER
I absolutely love Meg Sylvan and Tim Paige as narrators. They are perfect for Melissa Foster’s Sweet, Sexy Heart book. Dash and Amber are sweet, sexy, and fun and the voices of the narrators portray them perfectly. I could feel their love, hear their respect, and know exactly what emotion they were feeling as I listened to the story.
eBook Review: Dash Pennington is all alpha male, which is exactly what Amber Montgomery is not needing in her life. Amber is happy to run her bookstore, hang out with her friends, and live her quiet life. Enter Dash, who upon first look decides that Amber is all that he wants. As a retired athlete, motivational speaker, and author he goes for what he wants and does not give up until he gets it.
I loved that Melissa Foster wrote Amber as not a perfect character. She has epilepsy and it has held her back some. She knows that stress and tiredness can bring on seizures, so she lives her life carefully and aware of her body’s reactions. Dash Pennington has done his research on epilepsy and knows that he has to be aware of Amber’s needs. I love that he embraces her life, supports her, and wants a relationship with her. He does not just pursue her, he woos her, he wins her over, and he gives her everything that he has to offer.
Dash and Amber are meant to be. They belong together and I look forward to catching glimpses of their future in other books in this series.
