Touched by Love
Love in Bloom: The Remingtons #6

Released May 18, 2016

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she’s spent her life proving it. She’s moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she’s forced to give up the very independence she’s worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream—being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely—a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie’s rescue, she’s forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there’s more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn’t the only one who needs healing. Boyd’s painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.


"Touched by Love" by Melissa Foster.  This is a heartwarming tale that had me cheering and hoping for that HEA with each page turned.  Our main characters are Boyd and Janie.  I adored Boyd.  He survived a terrible tragedy yet didn't let him hold him back of pursuing his dreams.  Janie, being blind, has fought hard for her independence.  While I liked that she is strong and can take care of herself, at times her stubborness to be independent did irk me a bit.  Everyone needs someone to lean on once in a while.  Together, Janie and Boyd were a perfect pair.  He was incredibly patient and kind and caring.  And she got him and made him feel whole.  There is a bit of angst as both need to follow their dreams but what happens when their dreams lead them in different directions?  Ms. Foster's writing style flows easily and keeps the reader interested and involved.  The storyline is believable as are the characters within.  Ms. Foster has again written a story that I find to be entertaining, believable and incredibly romantic.  (received copy for honest review)
