Overview

"Sisters in Love" is a steamy contemporary romance with alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable for readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.

Voted BEST BOOK SERIES of 2013 by Supportive Business Moms, UK

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.

Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.

When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

    I love the way that Melissa Foster writes. She takes some pretty

    I love the way that Melissa Foster writes. She takes some pretty common romance archetypes – the uptight woman not looking for love and the man ho looking for his next fling – and makes them unique. I am a romance reader so have read these characters hundreds of times in hundreds of ways and yet Foster brings something to the table that is new and fresh.




    As per the usual contemporary romance script, the characters start out a little grating. Danica is something of a prude and almost irrational in her behaviour and then add to the equation that she’s a therapist. I’m gonna be honest with you here, when I first read her I pictured Dana Carvey’s Church Lady from SNL. The saying for mechanics is that their cars are always in blocks in the driveway and this analogy fits for Danica. She’s a therapist who is great at giving advice and doesn’t hesitate for even a minute to share her gift whether people want it or not. She makes somewhat questionable choices in her own life. Blake is the pretty typical alpha male man-ho. Not a whole lot to recommend him beyond a pretty face and big muscles. Foster develops these characters rounding out their rough edges in a way that makes them not only likable but also relatable.




    Much of “Sisters in Love” builds the base for the rest of the series. We meet the sisters and get an introduction to their relationship and dynamic. As with all of us, we are different people in different relationships and environments and Fosters doesn’t discount that real life dynamic. At the end of the day, “Sisters in Love” is a romance in the truest sense of the word and is a well-written example of that genre.




    If you like romance pick up “Sisters in Love.”

    Sisters In Love On the surface of things, Sisters in Love is

    Sisters In Love




    On the surface of things, Sisters in Love is a love story. And essentially, this is a completely true description of the book. However, it is the style and skill of the writing that elevates it beyond the simple basic love story into an enjoyable novel that appeals for the reread and leaves you wanting more of the story. 




    The relationship between sisters Danica and Kaylee is a key point in this book. The sisters are extremely different and yet still very close. Their relationship and interactions is an aspect of the book that gives it more depth than your standard quick-read love story. It helps create a real feel for the characters, and leaves a desire to know more about how their story turns out.




    The male lead, Blake, is not a very likable person, at least on the surface. But the chapters written from his perspective help show the inner turmoil he feels and his desire for change, even when it isn't apparent in his behavior toward others.




    Danica being a Big Sister in the Big Sister/Little Sister program was mentioned and brought into the book as well. It didn't seem completely central to the main plot of the story, but did offer an opportunity for Danica to really explore some of the feelings and emotions that were going on in her own head, especially in terms of her relationship with her sister Kaylee.




    Overall, Sisters In Love was a very enjoyable book. The writing is simple enough to make it a relatively quick read, but in depth enough to make it something more than a quick fluff book. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Sisters in Love

    Not my cup of tea in any way shape or form. Still can't figure out how I managed to force myself to finish, granted I did skim the last 10 chapters.
    Blake is a horrible character, I almost quit reading after 4 or 5 chapters because of his playboy behavior, which he relishs in. It's somewhat disgusting along with his thought process and how he justifies it all. His friend dies (who happens to be the only bearable character in the book) early on and Blake suddenly decides to change his ways. Danica is shy, extremely insecure, and jealous, which I found funny because she is a therapist. She doesn't know how to work out her own problems? Then she whines about not being able to date Blake with the no client/patient relationships, when it was really because she was insecure about what people would think. I also absolutely couldn't stand her sister Kaylie.
    Overall, this book was very, very rough. One of the more disappointing free books I've read.

    I was shocked that I disliked this book so much -  Blake is just a horrible character...  too old to continue making excuses,  oh poor me -
     I have to pick up ANY chick.. at ANY time... ALL the time,  then he was so proud that he made it through the night without picking
     up someone!!!     I am all for the bad boy manwhore,   but he was just disgusting.   I cannot believe that Danica would be remotely
     interested   in him, I don't care how hot he was.  He hit on her sister not once but twice and she knew it.   

    I have already bought the next book and I am so hoping that it is better than this one or I am done with this series.....

    Melissa Foster pens "Sisters In love" in a plot filled

    Melissa Foster pens "Sisters In love" in a plot filled with heart warming romance. Between the authors clean writing, a great blend of drama/romance/love/passion, and her characters that were believable, relate-able and had great chemistry between the, I fell in love with the story and had a hard time putting the book down. A sweet love story with a touch of humor and growth that I highly recommend to all romance fans.

    This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

     An amazing book with a lot of twists and turns. Melissa Foster

     An amazing book with a lot of twists and turns. Melissa Foster has quickly become on of my favorite authors.The way she grabs you and makes you feel for the characters is just not out there with a lot of newer authors. The Sisters in Love book is the first book in the Love in Bloom series. Each book centers  around a relationship. In this book it is Danica, the thirty-something therapist who is still finding herself meets Blake, the thirty-something player with a tendency to have one night stands never fully letting anyone else in. Until Danica.




    When Blake's best friend and business partner, Dave, dies in a tragic accident Blake calls a therapist recommended for him  by Dave himself prior to the accident. Little does he know that it is Danica the one woman he has met and can't seem to shake. The therapy sessions are so amazing with the sexual tension mixed with the struggle for both of them to maintain a professional relationship. 
    I love the way Melissa Foster manages to entertain me with the character's stories and also adding a bit of mystery for me too. I am really excited to start the second book in the series and really jump into these stories deeper.

    Romance - Do Opposites Attract?

    Get ready for a complex journey through the lives, hearts and minds of several small town citizens as love, deceit, secrets and betrayal stack the deck against trust, redemption, acceptance and love. At the heart of it all? The town therapist, a woman full of depth, caring and compassion and the shallow town man whore who now questions his love’em and leave ‘em attitude find themselves bordering on going beyond a professional relationship and into the uncharted waters of love.

    Will the conservative therapist uncover the real man behind the façade? Will he help her to add a little spice in her life?
    Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster strings together several subplots into a maze of conflict, warmth and character growth that makes a great escape from reality while not trying to be frothy and fluffy. Ms. Foster combines some serious issues, diverse characters and blends it all into a romantic read with a bite of reality.
