Publisher's Summary
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.

My Thoughts…

As with the rest of this series, BJ Harrison is amazing. The characters are brought to life with the changing tones of his voice, his smooth cadence, and his wonderful reading of River of Love. There were many times that I found myself lost in his voice not paying attention to what else I was doing.

Just the thought of The Braden’s bring butterflies to my stomach. I can hardly wait to read each new book as Melissa Foster releases them. This is The Braden’s at Peaceful Harbor, which are the cousins of the other Braden’s in the Love in Bloom Series.

This is the first book in this series that I felt a connection to the woman character before I fell for the man. While Sam Braden is amazing, Faith was even more amazing. She was hurt, badly, yet she stepped out of all her comfort zones and became a better, strong, and more sufficient woman. Her life could have go the other way and she could have wallowed and lost her way yet she not only made something of herself she helped so many others become better people too. I believe she made Sam a much better person just by being around him.

Sam is of course wonderful. He also has been hurt, yet he acts out and becomes a person that he doesn’t always like so much. The best part is the romantic part of him Sam. I believe this a part that he didn’t know existed within him and when it comes out he becomes the best man he can be. When faced with hard work and a challenge he steps up and conquers it.

Of course, I love Sam and Faith. I recommend this book. It is part of a series, but Melissa’s Love in Bloom series each book can be read as a standalone. If read in order they are even better since you will be more familiar with the characters and settings.
