In Touched by Love...
Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents and built a life in New York City and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.
Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream - being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely - a difficult task given his attraction to one of his coworkers.
When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

A Favorite Book by Melissa Foster
I have now found a new favorite book by Melissa Foster, and this says a lot about this book, because I have loved every one of her books that I have read, but this one is special. Janie is blind, but this does not define her. She is beautiful, inside and out, and her blindness has made her stronger and more independent. Then there is Boyd, a sexy fireman and EMT, that is hoping to get into medical school. He also has his own demons from his past, but he is the sweetest man. Their story will keep you reading and/or listening, even when you should be sleeping, or doing other things, but this book is so worth it. It makes you really think about a lot of things, but it at the same time is hot, romantic, and has a wonderful story. I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator, B.J. Harrison, does an outstanding job. He can do so much, just using his voice. I highly recommend this book, whether you read it, or listen to it.
Janie and Boyd- Scorching hot love story!
If you are a fan of Melissa Foster's you do not want to miss this book!! My boyfriend Du jour was Boyd. Wow... he took my breath away!!! The story of Janie and Boyd was beautiful. Janie, a blind technical writer, and Boyd, a paramedic who wants to go to medical school was captivating. I did not want to put the book down (sleep is overrated anyway) Janie cherished her independence while Boyd tried so hard not to stomp on her independence even when she was injured. Janie, in turn helped Boyd overcome some deep scars that affected his own mindset. The book took some unexpected turns. However, all turned out well in the end.. with a wonderful HEA!!! I loved reading this book as much as I did listen to the book. The audible with BJ. Harrison as the narrator was fantastic. Gave you a different perspective of the story!
I LOVED listening to this story after having already read it...and what can I say about Janie and Boyd other than...WOW!! What a beautiful story between two people who have more in common than what they first believe. Boyd is tortured from the loss of his parents years earlier, where he suffered externally, as well as internally. It took everything within him to allow Janie to see the real him. But his overprotective ways cause tension in their perfect relationship.
Janie is fiercely independent, despite her blindness. She doesn't let that stop her from doing anything she wants to in order to move on with her life. She doesn't want ANYONE to treat her differently because of the simple fact that she cant see. She's comfortable with Boyd and what their relationship makes her feel. He doesn't hold her back and treats her normally, making extra effort to help her see life and the world around them. But then comes his overprotective nature that throws her for a loop and she doesn't know if she can move past it.
After an accident where she thought she lost the love of her life, they both agree to work on moving past their own issues to allow for their HEA to happen the way it should...Together!
