Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable facade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he's going home to try to forget her all together.
Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she's never needed a man to help her find her way - until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she'd spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain - including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat. When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever - and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

I believe it's to close to call.. I love books. I love reading. This was the first time I used an Audio book and I was very pleased. I loved how having someone read to me, made the book come alive.
I am a Melissa Foster fan. All her books are captivating, amazing, and a chance to escape for a while.
B.J. Harrison helps bring the book to life. He is an exquisite narrator. I would love to listen to him again.
Two hearts that beat as one.
"Another great book...."
Another fantastic reading by BJ Harrison and of course Melissa Fosters book Lovers at Heart was great, but I will say I want to smack these women...while the story is great these women need some head smacking. But listening to Bj read this book I can so get past Max's insecurities, thankfully she gets it together. So as always this audiobook was awesome and I loved listening to it. I love that this family is so close but sometimes they are a little to nosey and pushy and that can be annoying but thankfully it's not the entire book. Also I'm thankful for how Melissa writes about all of them and keeps you up to date on everyone else from previous stories. Thank god Mr Braden finally spoke up and put those boys in place. Took long enough and the up and down kept you listening to see what would happen next. Kinda keeps you on pins and needles. Thank you Melissa for another good book and thanks for keeping BJ Harrison as your reader. He is fantastic at it. I look forward to more readings by him!!!
"Slow down and feel."
This is the first book I've listened to as an audio book. It actually was pretty interesting.
Melissa's books are all expertly written and you can definitely tell her writing apart from other authors.
No I have not.
I LOVE Treat and Max as a couple. I feel just about ever reaction and feeling that each character does throughout the book.
The only thing I would suggest is using a male AND female to narrate...giving a voice to both point of views.
"Great start to the next portion of this series!"
I enjoyed this first installment of the Bradens in the Love in Bloom series and was not disappointed in this story. I enjoyed the emphasis of family throughout the book as well as the fate factors with the characters Treat and Max. I enjoyed watching the pair navigate their way to their HEA with a few bumps in the road along the way. I enjoyed the narration of this book by BJ Harrison as it flowed well and he made it easy to differentiate between the different characters not once leaving me confused as to who was speaking. Also with the narration of this book I was able to picture some of the scenes better than when I had originally read this book a few years ago. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and would recommend it to others in any format but especially the audio one.
Though the narrator was awesome. I personally prefer to read the book.
Max the ever strong heroine.
"Love for Lovers at Heart"
Wow!!! Lovers at Heart is such a great read but to actually listen to it is even better!!! BJ Harrison does a wonderful job bringing this book to life! Max & Treat's story is one of the best so far!!! I love that Max is such a strong independent woman. Max having a secret past just adds to the character's complexity! One of the very best parts of this series is that you can catch up on your previous favorite couples in each new book!!
"Love having the book read to me!"
Treat and Max having been dancing around each other for 6 months. Once they connect the their demons are not far from the surface. Can they face them in order to find love?
Listening to this story really brought it to life for me. B. J. Harrison has a perfect voice for books. Very easy to listen to.
"Fun read exploring complexity of new relationships"
Lovers at Heart is a wonderful roller coaster ride to follow as a reader. If you read Melissa's "Snow Sisters" series, we met Treat and Max under the context of their work and the roles they play with their friends/family. If this is your first introduction to Melissa Foster's books (or this series), don't fear--the story is a stand alone and explores the characters, the "fire" between them, and the real world relationship struggles that new couples can go through--but will their love be enough? I love this story and I actually recently re-read it. There are some side characters in the book that show up in other books by Melissa! Edited to add: I just listened to the audiobook version of this book. My first audiobook ever! I am hooked. I loved being able to just get lost in the story. The narrators voice was very soothing. It took some getting used to hearing the characters voices all done by the same person as I have not listened to a book before. I will be downloading some other favorites and some new ones to try!
"Great Audio Book"
This is the first audiobook i have listened to and i loved it.
I loved the chemistry Treat Braden and Max Armstrong have. Their sparks and connection are amazing.
This was my first time having to listen to a narrator and i feel B.J. Harrison did great.
I had so many emotions listening to this book. I laughed with some parts and felt their pain with others.
This was a very great read and would recommend it to anyone i know.
This is by far my favorite book in the Love in Bloom series. I have read the book many times but this was my first time listening to it with audiobooks. I loved it just as much. The narrator has a great voice and I love it when he does girly voices. His voice had me engrossed in the story and I did not want it to end. Listening to it while driving and working out made drive time and my workouts fly by.
"Another awesome audiobook"
This book made me laugh, cry and swoon so much especially hearing it on audio book. So totally worth listening to.
