Review & Giveaway: RIVER OF LOVE by Melissa Foster

In River Of Love by Melissa Foster, Sam Braden loves women. The adventure company owner has a well deserved reputation of being a one time kind of guy. Lately though, the idea of sleeping around has been loosing it’s appeal and Sam blames that on the beautiful Faith Hayes. Faith, a physician’s assistant who works for Sam’s brother, has been burned in the past by a cheating boyfriend. She channeled that hurt into something positive by forming Women Against Cheaters, an online support forum. So when Sam begins to pursue Faith, she is naturally skeptical about his ability to commit. As the sparks fly and things heat up, will Faith be able to trust Sam with her heart?

24779216This book initially started out a little slow for me. It took a few chapters for me to sort out the characters and get into the story. Once I got into it, I couldn’t put this book down.Sam makes excellent book boyfriend material. He is smart, sexy, and a successful business owner. His patient wooing of Faith though is what won me over. Their first official date was so sweet and romantic. He never scoffed at Faith’s insecurities but instead proved why she could trust him.

I loved how Faith didn’t turn into a bitter scorned woman after she caught her ex cheating on her. Instead she used that hurt and turned it into something good with her support group. Faith truly wants to make a difference in her professional and private life.

In River of Love, Melissa Foster has written another fantastic contemporary romance. The chemistry between Faith and Sam is tangible from their first interaction. The book features a realistic story line, with great characters and a satisfying ending that will have readers wishing the book wasn’t over. Readers who love contemporary romance will definitely want to read this new release.

Book Summary:

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.
