River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He's fast, focussed, 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.
Loved River of Love
I love listening to BJ Harrison read Melissa Foster books. His voice is smooth and he reads Melissa's characters so well, it is easy to follow the book. And this book....well, Sam Braden is a complex person. His outward appearance is superficial compared to his deep hurt and beautiful heart. He falls for his brother Cole's employee Faith. Cole has warned him off Faith as he knows Sam's reputation and doesn't want Faith hurt. Faith has a history of being cheated on in the past and considers Sam a cheater. Will Sam be able to win her over? Read this delightful book to find out.
Sam Braden is smitten
Can Sam overcome his reputation? Is Sam just going against his brother to go after Faith? These are some of the questions confronted by both Sam and Faith in River of Love. Sam has fallen for Faith and has to work hard (which is not his normal MO), to make sure Faith knows his lightbulb went off and she is it for him. Sam wants to make sure Faith understands how important she is to him by showing her "firsts" with a woman - first motorcycle ride and first time at his bar. The strength of family is truly shown in this book as Sam shows how much he respects his brother by ensuring Cole finds out about the two of them from Sam, because as we all know the only reason Sam visited his brothers office was to see Sam. Sam is a changed man and getting over his reputation is difficult but he slowly breaks down the walls erected by Faith one piece at a time - those places no woman has been before and by showing he is truly a good guy and what you see is what you get. You will fall in love with the tenacity and care Sam shows in making Faith see he is the one for her.
BJ Harrison does a great job narrating this novel, at times I felt like I could even "feel" Faith blushing with the way he narrated the novel. Once you get used to the nuance of his voice and delineating between narration and dialogue it will be smooth sailing on listening to the story. I felt that BJ did a great job in vocalizing the emotions of the characters. You will not be disappointed in listening to Faith and Sam's story!
River of Love
B.J. Has the most soothing voice. I love how he keeps making me want to hear more of the story, and of course being one of Melissa's books doesn't hurt at all. She is one of my favorite writers.
And when Sam the playboy feels a spark for his brothers a assistant there seems to be hope for Sam.
Faith has been hurt by her cheating ex, and doesn't trust any man. But Sam breaks down her walls, and with faith they have the love we dream of. Such a wonderful love story!
