AUDIOBOOK REVIEW of Stroke of Love by Melissa Foster

·         Stroke of Love
·         Love in Bloom: The Remingtons, Book 2

Publisher's Summary

Kate Paletto runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he stirs emotions she hasn't felt for ages, even though he represents the things she despises.

Laid-back artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way he's always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but Sage is there to figure out what's missing in his life, not to find a woman.

Every look, and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together, but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate's misconceptions about him. Kate fights him every step of the way - even though she finds it hard to ignore the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing more than right the wrongs of the world - and love her to the ends of the earth.


When I listen to the audible version of Stroke of Love I find myself remembering why I love this series so much. The narrator is wonderful. He is able to portray the feelings, emotions, and reactions of the characters perfectly. BJ Harrison makes each character come to life. 

I immediately fell for Sage, although he is a popular and successful artist, he is so down to earth and real. He knows what he wants to do and isn’t doing it to make him more popular or to make him more money; he does it to make the world better or just because he wants to. He is not selfish and is really a breath of fresh air. The way he eases into Kate’s life and world, not letting Kate’s tough exterior keep him away or detour him from making a difference in the town or with the kids he is working for. 

I am sure I say this about Melissa Foster’s entire series, but it is amazing. They are each so perfectly written and with so much love and character I cannot stop reading. Each can be read as a stand-alone, but are so much more enjoyable as a series.
