In Bursting with Love…
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 mountains of Canada. 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. While Jack fights his way through his guilt, and struggles to get back into the lives of those he left behind, Savannah is there to help him heal, and together they nurture hope that they’ve finally found their forever loves.

Just blew me away
After having been burned yet again by her on again off again celebrity boyfriend, Savannah Braden needs a break from everything. A break from the city, her job, and certainly from men. Signing up for a survival camping trip sounds like just the solution, a chance to concentrate on herself and regroup. There’s just the matter of that too sexy for words guide she can’t take her eyes off of.
Jack Remington is a broken man. Having lost his wife in a terrible accident, he’s abandoned his own life, leaving his job and family behind to live in the wilderness, away from everyone who blames him. Except he can’t get away from himself. And now he also can’t get away from the beautiful city girl taking part in his latest wilderness survival trip.
The Verdict: At the rate this is going, my reviews of books in this series will soon have to be done via audio tracks filled with nothing but sighs and squeals. I love this book way too much for words.
I’ve been itching to get to Savannah’s story for a while now. She just seemed like so much fun and so full of life and love for her family in the previous books that I couldn’t wait to step into her tale — and it was better than I could have imagined. However, I wasn’t very interested in Jack before now. He just seemed kind of reserved and boring, and while I knew he would come across a lot better in his own book, I had no idea he was the hottest man who ever (fictionally) lived. I may have to reread this one to stave off the withdrawal.
As usual, the characters didn’t play into the typical romance novel cliches. Jack was angry and brooding but never once took it too far, and Savannah, for all her understanding, never coddled him or compromised her own needs. Their chemistry was indescribable (seriously, sex in the woods is ridiculously appealing now), and even when things should have seemed like they were moving terribly fast, it all seemed so natural.
Like I said, it’s way too much for words, so while I could go on and on and on, I’ll just say I loved every delectable second of Savannah and Jack. The whole Love in Bloom series is pretty amazing, but Bursting with Love just blew me away. It’s sweet and heartbreaking and sexy and easily one of the best romances I’ve ever read.
Review: Love in Bloom: The Bradens #5: Bursting With Love
Bursting with Love by Melissa Foster is book eight in her Love In Bloom series and book five in The Bradens portion of the series. This book can be read as a standalone but you may get more enjoyment by following each individual characters story arc by reading the series in order. It also has a Happily Ever After ending but prepare yourself for the journey which is heartbreaking at times.
Savannah Braden has had enough. She caught her boyfriend cheating on her, AGAIN. So, survival weekend getaway in the woods it is! What better way to re-center herself and re-evaluate her priorities and life in general. Everything goes great UNTIL she lays eyes on the guide for the weekend. He is the most beautiful man she's laid eyes on. Shame he's an arrogant jerk.
Jack Remington is a former United States Army Special Forces officer and after he lost his wife in a tragic accident, he's been doing these survival training weekends as his way to stay connected with the world. Maybe not connected with his family or friends, but at least with people and the outside world. When he locks eyes with the stunning Savannah, part of his latest survival group, he actually momentarily forgets his grief for the first time since his wife's death.
The joining of these two people (emotionally and physically) is a powerful love story that does not disappoint.
