Bestselling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends twelve hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller—that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Leanna's come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can't get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she's just stopping by to say thank you, but the steamy afternoon sparks a wild and sexy ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

READ, WRITE, LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While READ, WRITE, LOVE can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

Read an Excerpt

THE TIDE LAPPED at the sandy shore beyond the deck of the cedar-shingled bungalow where Kurt Remington sat on the deck of his cottage, fingers to keyboard, working on his latest manuscript. Dark Times was due to his agent at the end of the month, and Kurt came to his cottage in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to hunker down for the summer and complete the project. He lived just outside of New York City and he wrote daily, sometimes for ten or twelve hours straight. In the summers, he liked the change of scenery the Cape offered and was inspired by the Cape’s fresh air and the sounds of the sea.

He’d bought the estate of a local painter a few years earlier with the intent of renovating the artist’s studio that sat nestled among a grouping of trees on the far side of the property. Initially, Kurt thought he might use the studio as a writing retreat separate from where he lived, with the idea that leaving the cottage to work might give him a chance to actually have a life and not feel pressure to write twenty-four-seven. What he found was that the studio was too far removed from the sights and sounds that inspired him, and it made him feel like even more of a recluse than he already was. He realized that it wasn’t the location of his computer that pressured him. It was his internal drive and his love of writing that propelled his fingers to the keyboard every waking second. The idea of making the studio into a guest cottage crossed his mind, but that would indicate his desire to have guests, which would mean giving up his coveted writing time to entertain. So there it sat, awaiting…something. Though he had no idea what.

The cottage was built down a private road at the top of a dune, with a private beach below. A curtain of dense air settled around him. Kurt lifted his eyes long enough to scan the graying clouds and ponder the imminence of rain. It was seven twenty in the evening, and he’d been writing since nine o’clock that morning, as was his daily habit, right after his three-mile run, two cups of coffee, and a quick breeze through the newspaper and email. Once Kurt got into his writing zone each day, other than getting up to eat, he rarely changed his surroundings. The idea of moving inside and breaking his train of thought was unsettling.

He set his hands back on the keyboard and reread the last few sentences of what would become his thirteenth thriller novel. A dog barked in the distance, and Kurt drew his thick, dark brows together without breaking the stride of his keystrokes. Kurt hadn’t risen to the ranks of Patterson, King, and Grisham by being easily distracted.

“Pepper! Come on, boy!” A female voice sliced through his concentration. “Come on, Pepper. Where are you?”

Kurt’s fingers hesitated for only a moment as she hollered; then he went right back to the killer lurking outside the window in his story.

“Pepper!” the woman yelled again. “Oh God, Pepper, really?”

Kurt closed his eyes for a beat as the wind picked up. The woman’s voice was distracting him. She was too close to ignore. Get your mutt and move on. He let out a breath and went back to work. Kurt craved silence. The quieter things were, the better he could hear his characters and think through their issues. He tried to ignore the sounds of splashing and continued writing.

“Pepper! No, Pepper!”

Great. He was hoping to squeeze in a few more hours of writing on the deck before taking a walk on the beach, but if that woman kept up her racket, he’d be forced to work inside—and if there was one thing Kurt hated, it was changing his surroundings while he was in the zone. Writing was an art that took total focus. He’d honed his craft with the efficiency of a drill sergeant, which was only fitting since his father was a four-star general.

More splashing.

“Oh no! Pepper? Pepper!”

The woman’s panicked voice split his focus right down the center.

Leanna Bray and Pepper are not concerned with neat when Pepper goes off running toward the Ocean. Leanna goes right after her baby, and nearly drowns herself, except for the redeeming quality of Kurt Remington. Kurt, who had been sitting on the porch of his beach house writing - doing what writers do - was interrupted by the sounds of the woman calling and chasing after her dog. He ignored them for a while, until he heard them veer into danger. Then he went to their rescue. Kurt pulls Leanna from danger and right into his life - she can't stop thinking about the shirtless muscular hero, so she stops by to offer him some jams from her own jam making business. He invites her into his home of order and defined lines and she steps right in with organized chaos. Will this relationship grow? There is plenty of fire - it's combustible. Can order and carefree work together in one sustainable relationship? You'll just have to read and see. You won't regret it. There is an awesome story line with the attraction of opposites, independent women in small business, holding on by overcompensation, and finally trust and love. This is another Remington man with a back-story, and there are more to come. We get to meet Leanna's friends, who are fun and funny. I am sure we will see some more of them at some point now, or maybe even in a new series! Read, Write, Love is a great read for summer and holiday reading! I received this book in exchange for my honest review

Read, Write, Love is another great steamy story. I enjoyed reading about another member of the Remington Family. It was interesting to see how two people who are so completely different can make a relationship work. Kurt and Leanna did a good job of supporting each other and adjusting to their differences. The author, Melissa Foster does a fantastic job developing the story line and the family and friend relationships. LA-TXN

Of course, I loved Read, Write, Love.  Melissa Foster is an absolutely amazing author.  With each book in this series you get the wonderful opportunity to get to know another of the characters better.  This book is all about Kurt Remington.   Kurt is a dream, of course.   The way he dotes on Leanna and shows her his love is something out of a movie.   The flowers, the attention, the understanding of her quirks, and the love of her dog all prove his feelings to her over and over again.    As Leanna opens her heart and realizes that she is not a crazy person who is unlovable, she grows and learns to trust Kurt and her feelings towards him.    As always, with this entire series, I found myself picturing Kurt and dreaming of him.   Treat is still my all time crush, but Kurt is definitely ranked high in my book crush list.    I will recommend this entire series, including Read, Write, Love, to any romance readers.

Kurt Remington has always let a quiet, structured life. Using the determination his military father instilled in him from a young age, he's made a successful career of writing thriller novels, a career that allows him to divide his time between his family in New York and his tranquil days spent writing at the beach. But all that quiet and structure is shattered when a free-spirited woman with no roots and her disobedient dog wander out into the stormy surf in view of his deck. Leanna Bray upsets his carefully planned schedule and the solitude of his summer, but maybe her disorganized ways and unruly pet are exactly what he needs to start the next chapter of his life. The Verdict: Kurt was every bit the quiet thinker I expected, but of course he still had that Remington sex appeal and strong family values. His life, however, revolves around his writing schedule, and while it's certainly good for his career, outside of his siblings and parents, he doesn't have much else. His initial reaction to Leanna was hilarious, the perfect combination of annoyed and attracted and intrigued, and while he couldn't exactly wrap his head around her piles of laundry and inattention to all the ways her life was completely disorderly, it was just the kind of disorder he needed. I especially loved the way he just accepted her dog as part of the package deal, knowing that including Pepper in just about everything he and Leanna did was important to keeping her happy. I was surprised by the lack of angsty conflict in this book when compared to the others in the series. There were no giant misunderstandings or grudges, no sacrificing the relationship in some misguided attempt to preserve anything for the other person. There was still conflict, namely how they would manage a future together when it seemed their careers would require their being apart, but it was cool to read a story where the romantic pair didn't do something inanely stupid and almost ruin things. That's not to say I avoid the stories where that happens, since the truth is that we all do really stupid things when it comes to relationships. But I thoroughly enjoyed that the characters were up front and pretty much faced things head-on. Read, Write, Love is just another great story in the epic romantic saga that is Love in Bloom, and if you love romance reads, grab the whole series. It's got every kind of strong male lead you could want, from the sensitive writer to the angry survivalist, and every single one of them is just perfect. Leanna and Kurt add a new splatter of color to the series with her rather whimsical personality and his complete devotion to her.

Leanna is a total free spirit who wants to start a business and nope, a man is not part of her program at all. Kurt is my kinda guy, always in front of his computer working as a author. they both tend to stay in their own worlds until he saves her from drowning trying to save her dog. And as it tends to happen, they cant get each other off their minds. But can they come together enough to make it work? I like opposite attract type of books and this one didn’t disappoint.

Kurt is spending the summer on the Cape working on his latest book. He hardly ever gets away from his laptop and doesn't like to be disturbed. He likes things neat and tidy. The last thing he expects to interrupt his writing is a woman trying to save a dog in the ocean during a storm. Leanna is a free spirit who leaves a mess in her wake. She isn't sure what she wants to do in life and she sure isn't shy. When Leanna goes back to thank Kurt he finds he can't get her out of his mind. She has him wanting to take time away from his book. They are complete opposites but seem to balance each other out. Just when they think they may have the start to a good future Leanna gets the chance of a lifetime. It may cause them to be tore apart before they have a chance at a future. Kurt is a very focused man. He never misses a deadline and keeps everything in it's place. He only seems to take time away for his family and that is it. He isn't much on dating. Leanna is a very open person. She is not shy at all and always seems to have a mess going on. She has a few ideas what she wants to do in life but nothing is settled. She likes to move around. She is also afraid to be her self in bed at times. I was glad to get to read this book as Kurt was never talked about a whole lot. He kinda stays on the edges and seems quiet. This book gave me a chance to see a whole new side of him. He is very sweet and sexy. He an be very romantic. Leanna brings out so many good things in him and gets him to enjoy his life along with Pepper. He shows just how thoughtful he can be when he does everything he can to help Leanna and is very considerate of her friends. He also takes his time with her and lets her be herself. I like that Leanna while being a very sexy woman and not shy does worry about her sexual performance. She gives voice t what many women worry about and I think it was a nice touch that the author added a character like her. I laughed while reading this many times. You get to meet many great new characters and lots of the older ones you may already know. I never gave much thought to Kurt but I think he may be one of my favorite brothers. You must read this series if you haven't yet. While they can be read as a standalone i say read them all they are fantastic.

What can I say about Read, Write, Love that I haven’t said about all the other books in The Remington’s Series? WOW, I loved it!. Kurt Remington is now my favourite Remington sibling, a hot brooding writer who seems to be reclusive, he’s organised and a neat freak, everything has its place so when he meets the whirlwind that is Leanna, the total opposite of him, messy, disorganised and you think it will never work, Kurt would not even go there with the annoyance he showed when they first met. Their chemistry is amazing and opposites do attract. But both are in denial, neither needs a partner which makes it even better because we all know the tension is building between them and it’s only a matter of time. It was a beautiful romance where we get to know the final Remington sibling properly and Leanna too but also get to catch up of the other family members too. Melissa Foster again has outdone herself yet again and I can’t wait to read more from her.

Another Great (and Steamy!) Novel! I really try not to sound like a broken record but I have truly come to love Melissa Foster's writing. She has a way of telling a story, developing characters and drawing you in as a reader that you forget that you're reading about the lives of fictional characters. While each of the novels in her series can be read as standalone novels, if you read the entire series, each novel gives you insight into the characters that is built upon in the subsequent novels. Ever read a great story and wondered what happened to the characters? With this series you get that as the lives of the characters are intertwined. I knew Kurt's love story was going to be awesome. The chemistry between him and Leanna is awesome! Order and discipline meets chaos and free spirit - definitely a perfect match, right!?! It was great to watch their love develop and see how each was able to help the other grow personally and professionally.

I can always count on Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom series to put a smile on my face no matter what else is going on in my life (and believe me it's been crazy lately). Read, Write, Love is no exception. I'm really behind on my reading and almost forgot I was suppose to review this one this week. So, I started reading this one the night before my daughter's graduation when I was taking a break from preparations. It was the perfect stress reducer; one I definitely needed. Melissa Foster's always seem to fill with happiness and hope and love. I was a little worried about this one before I started it. In previous books Kurt seemed to be kind of a stuffed shirt, especially compared to his siblings. I knew he definitely loved his family and was close to them but I had my doubts about how he would let love into his life. Well, he is definitely not a stuffed shirt. I mean he is driven to write but he comes to realize that there is more to life than writing and his family when Leanna crashes into his life. This free-spirited woman takes him by surprise and changes his life forever. Don't worry if you haven't read previous stories in this series because it can be read as a stand alone book. Although, I strongly recommend reading the whole series. This book, as with other books in this series, is perfect for summer reading at the beach, pool, or anywhere. However, this does have several sexually explicit scenes that are not appropriate for all ages. I give this book 5 stars, and a huge smile. Instead of letting Calgon taking you away (or maybe in addition to) let Melissa Foster's Read Write, Love. You will love the characters and think of them as real people. Then there is the wonderful setting of the Cape, a place I've always wanted to visit. Just be prepared because once you start reading, you won't want to put the book down. I was given a free copy of this book from Beck Valley Books for my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% mine.

So Cute So Sexy ~ Read, Write, Love by Melissa Foster starts off with a great note to readers.  Sometimes, I like to read how stories come about. And, I knew that it was going to take a lot of dragging from a very special woman to get Kurt, a male writer, away from the only comfort he stubbornly knows of. Kurt lives in Cape Cod. He bought the estate of a local painter with the intentions to renovate. (I love it already!!!) The whole ambiance was just magnificent. Kurt meets Leanna and Pepper the little dog, in a very annoying way for both of them. So, Leanna and I, both noticed that Kurt was perhaps a neat freak. What can go through Kurt's mind now that Leanna has shown herself partially naked? Where will all this lead to? It was cute to read how Kurt felt about Leanna when he drove her home and saw her front garden ~ (a little unkempt, a little wild, and incredibly pretty). At Leanna's home, Bella recognises Kurt describing him as not just a writer but the hottest thriller writer out there. Leanna goes on with her life. She is taking her apricot-lime and strawberry-apricot jams to the flea market.  As I was reading, of course, I imagined myself in her shoes; after all, I don't make or have much money just like her - that gives us one thing in common. At the end of the day, she goes to Kurt's place and gives him a basket of "Luscious Leanna's Sweet Treats" Then, he told her to stay - I sighed.  He finally realises that she's sexy and more. Yessiree! Even a famous hunk like Kurt can have a rival. The thought that Leanna spent a night with Carey was able to make his chest tighten. He had to ask her about it. This is another amazing romantic story I truly recommend. It feels like all is possible and that it can happen to me. I need a dog, rush! I need to visit Cape Cod and stay at Seaside Cottages, rush! Stories like this one, make me dream. Adriana LG

I loved reading about when complete opposites are the ones that are perfect for one another. My hubs and I are kind of like this where he is more of a free spirit and I am more structured and like to have a schedule in my life.  Kurt Remington writes about thrillers and is pretty much glued to his keyboard. Nothing can pull him away when he is thinking about his writing. Kurt lives in NYC  but has a cottage in the Cape that he will go to so he can write in the summer. This is where Kurt reminds me of myself…he is a neat freak. Then here comes Leanna Bray into his life to make it just a little bit more messy. Her puppy doesn’t make anything better on the topic of neatness. He doesn’t care where he trails his mess and honestly, neither does Leanna. She tries her best to make her puppy listen to her but he keeps running away to go and play. Kurt is busy with his writing when he is distracted by a woman that is calling about for her dog. He can not ignore it no matter how much he tries until he realizes that she has run into the ocean to get the puppy. Who wouldn’t have done that to get their cute little puppy back?! Kurt is then twisted to go and help her. This is where everything really starts to happen within the book. Things get messy, but they are a lot of fun that way. I loved Leanna and her friends. They made me laugh and I know that you will love them as much as I did. I am the stickler and I enjoyed her character just as much as I did the well-put together (sometimes) Kurt. Read, Write, Love is the 5th book in The Remingtons Series and the 12th book in the Love in Bloom Series. Every single book that I have read in this series has made me smile, cry, laugh, feel in some way. This one was no different. I would recommend every single book in this series!

4.7 Star Review - Read, Write, Love Kurt spends all him time in front of a computer writing bestselling thriller books. Organized and stills to a schedule. He meets his total opposite Leanna when we rescues her down from drowning. Leanna forgets everything and does not stick to a schedule at all. Leanna want's to figure out her own life before finding a man. Fate just might have other ideas for Leanna. Can opposites really make it work? See for yourself. Pick up the story and read Kurt and Leanna's story. The story was full of sweet moments but still a steamy love story. Definitely worth the time to read. Can't wait for the next book that Melissa put out.

Opposites attract in Read, Write, Love, by Melissa Foster. Kurt Remington's world is knocked upside down by a free spirited Leanna Bray comes crashed- or shall I say splashing  into his life. As he writes in his beach front office he catches Leanna nearly drowning all the while trying to save her dog. The cute, soaking wet mess of a woman could possibly be the one things he's been missing all along, even if she is completely unorganized. I love the clash, completely polar opposites and yet when they get together there's something neither can walk away from. Leanna is free minded, and goes out to live her life when Kurt is stuck in his own. They each bring something to the table and balance each other out nicely, it's fun to watch them figure things out along their journey. In the short time that they come together, sparks are flying but will it last? Leanna has a new business she's going after, yet it may take her away. With they have a future together, or was this a once in a lifetime beach romance that they both walk away from? You'll have to find out yourself and pick up a copy of Read, Write, Love by Melissa Foster. It's a sweet cute story that was fun to read. It will make you laugh and fall in love with the journey they go on.

In the final book of the Remington family, you get to see a bit of Kurt's life.  Kurt is by far the most reserved of the Remington kids, but when he meets Leanna he learns to let her and her dog right in!  Kurt is very organized and clean where Leanna is anything but!  I found it fun to get to know Kurt as he was changing his ways for another person.  The love between Kurt and Leanna is somewhat close to perfect!  The story is exactly how you would want your love life to go.  Full of love, surprises and romance!  A favorite part of this story is you can purchase Leanna's Luscious Sweet Treats!  We first learn about them in the book, but they are real!  I can't wait to try the Apricot Lime.

What an amazingly sweet yet sensual romance about a man who’s organized and a planner, and a woman who’s not. The most appealing aspects of this story are Kurt and Leanna. If ever there was a perfect story written about two complete opposites who manage to make their relationship work despite having such different personalities, this is it. Kurt’s nose-to-the-grindstone approach to life is disrupted when he meets Leanna. She’s unlike any other woman he’s ever met or known–honest, open, and living without much of a life plan. And who doesn’t love a free-spirited heroine, especially one like Leanna? She talks nonstop, is who she says she is, and might have finally figured out what she wants to do with her life. Maybe. Leanna becomes that splash of color in Kurt’s life, while Kurt becomes the anchor in Leanna’s. She might distract him from his writing with heated kisses and promising embraces, but she doesn’t pull him away from what he loves to do. He encourages her to pursue what she wants, exhibiting patience and understanding as she “grows up” without ever making a decision for her. The physical attraction was obvious. The emotional attraction took time. That moment when their relationship became more than just about sex was awesome. Yeah, I grinned like an idiot when they realized how they felt for each other because it was so cool to see. Perhaps the most poignant scene was when Kurt and Leanna had to make a tough decision about their relationship. It was a tough scene to read. Emotions ran high and I knew one or both of them would end up unhappy. But it doesn’t end there. Ms. Foster doesn’t leave you hanging with “What the hell?” running through your head like a broken record. Nope. She shows how compromising brings fulfillment to the relationship as a whole, and how everyone wins because one or both are willing to make a sacrifice. ~~~ “Right this very second I can see your face. I can hear your voice.” His voice was sweet and patient. “This moment is anything but sucky. You know what’s sucky? Losing the person you love. … “You are my moment, Leanna. If you’re here, I want to be right here with you. Every minute of every day.” (Kindle, Loc 3622 to 3951)

This has got to be my favorite installment in this series to date. Kurt Remington leads a dream life. Plenty of money paired with doing what he wants everyday of his life. Writing. The bane of many high school students, but I would love to spend my days letting the words flow as they come.Leanna Bray reminds me of me, a little messy, loves to make jam, and a tad scattered. Leanna and Kurt can’t be more different, but as well know, opposites attract. Can that attraction be enough to overcome their massive differences?Kurt and Leanna are a couple that you want to make it last. Did Melissa Foster nail it again? I think so!

I have love the series this far, but this book was slow and boring to me. Maybe because of who the main character was and what we saw in the other stories. I will definitely continue with the series.

I don't think this is the copy I ended up with on my nook! I don't have the bonus recipes, etc. Maybe someone else can tell me if this copy does the same thing. I am on Chapter 13 and for the SECOND time in the book, it says that Kurt has 3 brothers and a sister. It's FOUR brothers! Jack, Rush, Sage and Dex. It drives me nuts when authors/ editors cannot keep stories straight

If you have been following my journey through romance novels, then you will know how much I have enjoyed Melissa Foster’s books. Read, Write, Love is another beautiful addition to the “Love In Bloom” series. I easily connected with Leanna & Kurt, they are such total opposites. I was able to reminisce in how opposite my husband and I are, and how everything is so much more intense because of it. In this type of relationship the insecurities and faults seem to be made up by the other, and vice-versa. This is exactly how I see Leanna & Kurt-they complete each other to perfection. Whether you read this as a stand alone or start the journey from the very beginning, you will definitely not be disappointed! I love seeing past characters pop up in later books, each couple and/or person adds so much to the overall plot. The characters are developed and become like family, being able to read these is like cracking open an old family diary. Where all personalities, secrets, and glimpses into ones life dances in your mind.

This novel proves the fact that opposites most definitely attract! Kurt Remington is a writer of thrillers and can almost never be tempted away from his keyboard. He writes incessantly and when not writing-well he is thinking about his characters, plot line etc. He mostly lives in NYC but does have a cottage up in the Cape to which he escapes to write every summer! He also happens to be a TOTAL neat freak! Enter Leanna Bray with her big floppy puppy. Now as everyone knows--puppies don't think twice about muddy paws etc--but then neither does Leanna! Leanna can not quite get her dog to obey but loves him to pieces and the dog is forever running away to play! Well--Kurt is happily typing away one evening when he hears a woman frantically calling for her dog. He tries to ignore it but then realizes this woman is about to run into the ocean after her dog (hey I would have done the same!)and decides he better get down there before they both drown. This is when the fun begins----total mess meets total clean. Leana's friends are really funny and you will get a kick out of them as well. That's all she wrote---you will just have to read this 5 star novel to see how it all works out.

The quietness of the beach house is just the place for bestselling author, Kurt Remington, to work on his latest thriller.  But the usual serine atmosphere is quickly disrupted when he spies Leanna Bray unsuccessfully trying to get her dog out of the rough ocean water.  Concerned that she’ll end up drowning, and wanting to get them both away from his beach house so he can finish writing, Kurt offers up his assistance.  It doesn’t take long for Kurt to learn that stubborn Leanna is not only eccentric in her lifestyle, but is as disorganized as Kurt is strictly organized.  But he finds himself captivated by her none the less. Unlike Kurt’s immaculate house, Leanna’s cottage is a bit unkempt, but cute … sort of like Leanna.  Much of her time is spent making homemade jams and jellies that she sells at the local flea market, but her dream is to someday sell them in stores.  To say thank you for helping rescue her dog, Leanna decides to bring a basket of her homemade goods to Kurt.  Impressed by her thoughtfulness and intrigued by her free spirited ways, Kurt finds himself enjoying Leanna’s company.  Come join Kurt and Leanna as they test the theory of attraction and see if, indeed, opposites attract. Read, Write, Love is the fifth book in The Remingtons series and the twelfth book in the Love in Bloom series.  I have been enjoying this series since the first book and can honestly say that I have loved each and every one of them.  Not only are the characters fun and sexy, but the storyline brings you in and holds your attention throughout the book.  I would not only recommend this book, but all of the books in the Love in Bloom series.

Being someone who has always had a love for books & reading, I connected pretty quickly with Kurt. When we first see Kurt & Leanna Bray together, it's pretty obvious how much she needs him, though she thinks that she doesn't need a man! She is a fly by the seat of my pants type of girl, who is so unorganized which is completely opposite of Kurt! There is so much tension there - sexual tension included - that it's just about to burst into flames!
