River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He's fast, focused, and determined--and never at a loss for a willing woman to share his time with. The trouble is, the only woman he wants refuses him at every turn.

Physician assistant Faith Hayes escaped her painful past and built a safe, happy life in Peaceful Harbor. She's also put what she's learned to good use helping others by founding Women Against Cheaters, an online support group. When her boss's sinfully sexy brother sets his sights on sweet Faith, she knows the self-professed player is everything she shouldn't want, and she's determined to resist him.

Sam pulls out all the stops, proving to Faith that his past doesn't have to define his future. As she lets down her guard and begins to trust Sam, intense conversations turn to intimate pleasures. But when real life steps in and their pasts collide, it's Faith who's left with something to prove.

Fabulous Book Narrated by BJ Harrison

As always Melissa Foster has written another great book about the Braden’s, this book is Sam’s story! Sam meets Faith at his brothers medical practice, everyone wants him to stay away from Faith because he hops from woman to woman and no one thinks he will stick with Faith, not only does he have to prove to her but his brother and her best friend too. Sam has his work cut out and Melissa knows how to spin a great story. I simply love how she pulls you into a story and keeps you engrossed in the story. I read the book first then was offered the audio version and let me just say listening to B.J. Harrison narrate, he was phenomenal. Didn’t want him to stop talking in my ear 😄. When ever I got to my destination I didn’t want to turn off the book, I wanted to keep listening to BJ’s voice. He just has a way with narration that keeps you listening. Melissa you know how to pick great narrators, I hope you keep BJ for future books as well. Go grab the eBook as well as the Audio version as well, you will love it. Thanks for letting me listen to the audio book, I really enjoyed it and look forward to hearing more of your books read by BJ Harrison. I highly recommend this audio book!!!

It can’t get any better

This book is about a person's ability to change in order to be worthy of someone's love and the other person's learning to trust enough to let love in.Sam's brother has warned him away from Faith, the physician's assistant that works in Cole's practice. He knows Sam is a huge player and doesn't want to see Faith hurt. Sam's attraction to Faith overcomes everything else and he wants to get to know her better. Unfortunately, Faith knows about his reputation, too.She's convinced he's a cheater.

Sam & Faith...Match Made in Heaven

MR SAM BRADEN is one heck of a man to be in Love with. And Faith knows it! She's been hurt by a man who is, in her mind, just like Sam. Flirty with woman, can't settle down with just one, and, in her eyes, would cheat in a heartbeat. But, what she doesn't realize is that Sam may be a flirt and jump from woman to woman, but he would never, EVER put a woman into the shoes he was once in and cheat on one of them. They know the story up front of what he wants.

So, he sets out to prove her wrong. Faith and Sam fight the attraction toward each other until they cant anymore. In the end, can Faith and Sam fight the attraction or fight through her insecurities?

BJ Harrison beautifully narrates this amazing story of Trust and faith, allowing us to feel every emotion that Sam and Faith are fighting with throughout.
