I had not read any of Melissa's writing and tried this book as freebie. I found the characters well developed. When the story was done I was looking for more of her writing.

Nearly every review is a plot spoiler. I wish bn would put a stop to these ppl who think they are book gods and simply MUST retell the story because the rest of use are just too dumb to read a book and understand it. And before some smartaleck says dont read the long reviews...i dont, but when you have to scroll past miles of them its hard not to see something that usually ruins the book. Plot spoilers, get a life and stop ruining books for other readers. You are not helping and 99% of readers do not like you.

    ***This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.***




    This was my first book from Melissa Foster, but it certainly won’t be my last!




    I really enjoyed the small town feel this book had, especially the portion that took place in New England. The way they fit into their surroundings always says something to me about the characters, and I love that Treat new ‘the locals’ so well, and that Max was quick to make friends.




    Treat’s family was a highlight in this book for me. I loved his dedication to them and his desire to make them proud. His character was such a stand-up guy; when he realized he was in love with Max, he took personal responsibility for her happiness, and I loved that about him. He learned from his mistake the first time around–he wasn’t going to let her get away again, and he  wasn’t going to waste a moment in telling her how he felt. His fears were so founded, and I loved that he was willing to push past them so he could move on with Max.




    Max was a ‘tougher nut to crack’ for me. She had a lot of issues, and while I love that she was finally able to semi-conquer them and admit she wanted to be with Treat, I’m not sure she ever took responsibility for them. I think this is fits with her character, though. Max was a bit neurotic, and Treat’s stability is going to be a constant source of strength for her throughout their lives. And I think that’s one of the reasons Treat and Max work so well together–Treat loves being a rock for the people around him.




    Aside from Treat’s family, I really liked Chaz and Kaylie. Kaylie brought so much life to every scene she was in! She was such a fun character to read.




    Also, the steam factor in this book was freaking hot! Treat and Max were definitely well matched in the bedroom!




    I recommend this book if you are looking for a story with a small-town feel where the hero works to get his gal!
