Lovers at Heart by Melissa Foster




Lovers at Heart

The Bradens Series Book One

By: Melissa Foster


Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way—until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain—including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever—and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Hold On Tight by Nicola Haken ~ Release Day Event ~

Hold on tight Release Day Event Banner


A figure from Dexter’s past has uprooted all the memories he has tried so desperately to bury… to forget. The terrible events of his past have been blown wide open once again, immersing him a pool of guilt deeper than he’s even experienced before.

Dexter feels powerless. The future he foolishly allowed himself to conceive is falling apart around him and there’s nothing he can do about it. But there’s one thing he can control – one thing he’s an expert at… blocking everything out. Losing all control, Dexter copes the only way he knows how – he dives so far into the well of addiction, the only thing that matters anymore is where his next fix is coming from.

Mission accomplished – there’s no one left. He’s successfully pushed everyone away. Nobody left to care about means no more guilt, right? You can’t hurt people who aren’t there…

But has he really pushed Emily as far away as he thinks he has? She’s given up everything for him – her home, her friends… her whole life. And she doesn’t regret a single thing. But can she save him from drowning, or has he finally sunk too far?

(Not suitable for under 18’s due to language, sexual content and explicit drug use)

Why hadn’t I resisted him? Because he was too strong, too determined, too beautiful. And because I was hopelessly, helplessly head over heels in love. He had made me fall apart and fall for him.

Back at her Los Angeles headquarters, Gloria faces unexpected deceit, intrigue, and danger and must make a heart-wrenching life-or-death decision that will cost her not only her empire but also the man she loves. Revenge is the only solution. But will she find the strength to confront the demon from her past who harbors the dark secret that can shatter her world?

Ocean’s Collide by M.A. DeOlmos ~Release Day Event~

Oceans collide Release Day Event Banner


My name is Livie Marie Acosta. I am a firm believer that childhood memories are supposed to be happy, joyous, and beautiful. I also believe everyone else in life has just that… except for me, of course.

I came close to having that once with my own family. I had a loving mother that treated me like her little princess. My father was, and still is, the biggest support system in my life, but even his love isn’t enough for me at times. I would have been a proud big sister at the age of seven, but Antonio Jr. was torn away from us before he was even born.

I was destined to be alone and hurt, both emotionally and physically scarred.

The only skeletons that remained of my once happy family was a father I adored, but who lived hundreds of miles away, and a mother whom I had spent most of my own life saving from her demons.

Like many people, they are scarred so deep that when they bleed, it is a reminder that they are still human.

I have a secret. A secret only I know about. I keep my secret well, and keep it hidden from the peeping eyes of the world.

At least I tried… that is until two angels barged into my life, and into my scattered heart. Their presence in my life spun me on my heels, turning my world yet again upside down, and right side up all at the same time.

What I find could either save me, or finally push me over the edge.

Here is my story…

melly dMy name is Melissa DeOlmos, a newbie to the world of indie writing. I live in sunny side Palm Bay, Florida with my two lovely crazies ages five and two, along with my Law Enforcement champ of a husband. I could say that writing novels has been a passion that I’ve always pursued, but I can’t. Writing for me has always been my own secret escape into a land of wonders, opportunities, loves and so much trouble that I sometimes wonder if I need medication for the stories that pop into my head. I am now deciding to share my mystical mind and stories with the world, so that hopefully others may also find that little something extra they’ve been looking for.

Down To You by Addison Kline ~Review~



Holly Edgemont used to love celebrating Christmas, that is, until her whole world was turned upside down by an unexpected divorce from her college sweetheart Brant. This year, not only is she divorced, but the kids are going out of state with her ex Brant, leaving her utterly alone. Holly’s party-girl friend Sloane tries to break her out of her frump by dragging her along to holiday parties where Holly meets cute and available Chris. But when Holly realizes that she still has feelings for Brant, she has a decision to make: Learn to trust her long time love who broke her heart, or move on for good.

Brant Edgemont is a divorced father of three, and hopelessly in love with his ex-wife, Holly. He made the biggest mistake of his life walking out two years ago. Despite his pleas to reconnect, Holly still resists him. Is it too late to rekindle their love? Or will Holly move on for good, leaving Brant himself heartbroken and alone?

Down To You is not just a romantic love story. It is a story of familial love, friendship, betrayal, redemption, and the magic that can happen at Christmas time when friends and family join together.



Down To You is a cute story based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania about a man and a woman with three young children who recently separated and divorced.  It’s a story about grief and loss, but also forgiveness and unconditional love.  Although I’m not usually a big fan of shorter stories, I felt this book was the perfect length based on the events that took place.  I really enjoyed the storyline behind the writing, an ex husband and wife rekindling their relationship, helplessly in love, unable to move on from each other.

Holly and Brant Edgemont met many years ago while they were in college in a cafe where Brant was employed.  They hit it off immediately later getting married and having 3 beautiful children.  An unexpected work trip comes up while Holly is pregnant with their 4th child and Brant is sent to Hong Kong.  While he’s away, everything changes.  It isn’t until he returns that everything falls into the pits.

Will they ever be able to put the pieces back together and live as a family again?  Will the trust between the two of them remain the same?  Brant’s best friend and best man in their wedding, Chris, takes a turn against him as he chases after Holly.  Chris is well aware Brant still loves Holly but he doesn’t care- he wants her, in the worst way.  Will Holly choose Brant or Chris?  Or will she choose neither of them and stay alone?

I enjoyed reading this story because it’s unique.  Most romances start with a heartbroken woman who finds the perfect battered man and it’s all hotness, sexy, hopeless romance.  Down To You is different, the plot focuses on forgiveness, sadness, devotion, and yearning.  I was rooting for Brant the whole time!  I wanted to walk into the story and tell Holly all of the things that Brant couldn’t bring himself to say to her.

As I stated enjoying this read, I awarded it 3 stars for these reasons: it needs some more editting, for starters.  I am in no way a grammar nazi but there were misspellings and words that weren’t meant to be the word displayed.  Also, the storyline was unique but I thought it lacked spark.  I wanted something more to come in the way between them.  Maybe infidelity, a previous boyfriend/girlfriend, some sort of substantial issue.  I was looking for more drama, more grief, something to keep me sucked into the book.  Two thumbs up to the author for writing an adorable love story with a HEA- we all love happy endings. 🙂
