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.
After experiencing heartbreak as a teen, Sam turned into the resident playboy of Peaceful Harbor. But as much as he sleeps around, he treats all of his lady friends with respect and they all know the score. Faith is relatively new to town but has already heard all about Sam Braden. After being cheated on by the man she thought she’d marry, she has no intention of falling for another smooth talker, no matter how cute and attentive he seems.
RIVER OF LOVE was a sweet and simple read and the first book I’ve read from Melissa Foster. It’s told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. This was a good book that was well written and I liked both Sam and Faith, but the story didn’t excite me and it took me several days to finish it. If you like sweet stories about sweet people, this one is for you.
Sam: “Let me love you, embarrass you, and dance with you until the day you bury me six feet under. Then I’ll wait for you on the other side, knowing that whatever else there is, we’ll experience it together.”
