Sweet and sexy small town romance
Healed By Love is a friends to lovers, sort of second chance story. It combines sweet small town romance and sexy heat with lots of chemistry between the main characters.
Nate Braden has always loved Jewel, his best friend Rick’s kid sister. Nate returns from his tour overseas as a hero, but Rick didn’t make it home and Nate harbors so much guilt. He tries to keep his distance while still watching out for Jewel as a promise to Rick.
Jewel has been on her own and doesn’t know if she wants the complications that Nate represents especially when she is so confused by Nate’s running hot and cold.
I listened to this story on audiobook and loved the narration. B.J. Harrison really helped bring the book to life!
This is a wonderful book, but I cried bucketfuls. I think I did some healing right along with Nate and Jewel though. It is a very emotional book, but Melissa Foster did a great job with a very difficult topic. It is also a great title for this book. To me, it says it all. Nate and Jewel are both healed by their love. Then, there is B.J. Harrison, who narrated this book. He, as always, did an outstanding job. The Melissa Foster/ B.J. Harrison combination is the best!
