Lovers at Heart by Melissa Foster with Giveaway & Review

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.

My Review: 4 stars
This was a very good book about two very different people. Treat is so amazing once he realizes what it is he feels for Max. Cause let's face it, not everyone recognizes love even when it smacks you upside the head. You just feel different, just for that one person, and if you're lucky they feel the same. Max is trying to overcome her own relationship demons - NOT! She's content to jsut do her job and get by without relationships, until she meets Treat. Then she doesn't know what to do. This book makes you think long and hard about why people do the things they do and the things they did. It made me think about it, anyway. No one is perfect, but you have to be willing to listen and compromise in any relationship if it's going to even have a chance. Initially, Max and Treat got off on the wrong foot, and then they just couldn't help but keep stumbling. They both make some rash decisions, but keep coming back to each other to apologize. That's a good start. I've got to say this is the first I've read of Melissa's work, and I truly enjoyed it. I'm curious about her other books and I'll have to read them to know if they're as good as this one. Excellent characters and I'm really looking forward to the next book in this series.
