River of Love by Melissa Foster Review

River of Love
The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor #3
By: Melissa Foster
Releasing April 20, 2016
World Literary Press

Fall in love with Sam Braden in the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor. Hot, sexy, & wickedly naughty second cousins to the Weston, Colorado Bradens we know and love.

River rafting and adventure company owner Sam Braden works hard and plays harder. He’s fast, focused, 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.

Faith Hayes as been cheated on in the past and since then she has kept her heart locked behind steel bars and started a online forum Women Against Cheaters (or WAC for short) and moved to Peaceful Harbor for a fresh start working as a Physicians Assistant and to finally have a happy life. But when her bosses brother; Sam Braden, keeps flirting with her and asking her out, but Faith is put off by his reputation as a man whore!

Sam Braden is obsessed by Faith, evening making up excuses to visit his brothers office, just to see her. But Sam is fighting an uphill battle, you see Faith has the wrong impression of him and thinks that he is a cheater and has no regard for women. But Sam is determined to show Faith that she has the wrong idea about him and now he is out to prove that he is really a man with a heart.

Just as Sam and Faith start to develop a relationship, someone from the past comes and  threatens to destroy everything!

I'm super thrilled that we are back in Peaceful Harbor Braden's and I really did enjoy reading the story of Sam and Faith and checking in with the other Braden's. The story, writing and characters was enjoyable, heartwarming and lovable. I also loved the way that they author has tied in other Braden series and I am just counting down the books till Ty's and then I am going to laugh with glee…But I'm getting ahead of myself. As normal Melissa Foster blows my mind with her talent for telling a story and making the characters in the book feel like they are really your friends! Her writing is exceptional and her books are truly a joy to read and I look forward to every book.

I give River of Love 5 stars!
