Stroke of Love by Melissa Foster Review and Giveaway


Book #2 The Remingtons, Love in Bloom Series #11

Kate Parello 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.

STROKE OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series.

My Review of Stroke of Love by Melissa Foster

This is the second book about the Remington siblings and this one brings us Sage. Oh, sweet Sage. *insert swooning here* Talented artist Sage Remington is looking for something bigger in his life – like finding out where he belongs. So, he decides it’s time for a retreat away from home and travels to Belize to find himself. Little does he realize he will find his future in that two week time frame.

Sage is so relaxed, especially compared to Kate’s overly organized ways but together they make a great couple. Both selfless and both wanting what comes next.

Melissa Foster does it again with a story of self-discovery, finding your soul mate, and living happily ever after. Although, this book is a bit different in how it’s written. To me it seemed like there was a lot of build up, but a rush to the end. That being said, the characters are easy to love, hard to let go, and definitely keep you on the edge wanting to know what comes next.

I can’t wait to meet the rest of the Remington siblings in the next few books. Melissa Foster keeps bringing us all these sexy heroes and I definitely keep swooning.
