Bursting with Love is the newest addition to The Bradens (Love in Bloom series) by New York Times & USA Today best-selling and award-winning author Melissa Foster.

She takes a break from her fast-paced Manhattan lifestyle for a weekend at a survivor camp to rebuild her confidence and readjust her priorities. But when she meets the handsome guide, Jack Remington, she's drawn to everything about him - from his powerful physique to his brooding stare - despite the big chip on his shoulder. Powerless to ignore the heated glances and mounting sexual tension, Savannah begins to reassess her hasty decision.

After losing his wife in a tragic accident, Jack Remington found solace in the Colorado Mountains. This solitary existence allows him to wallow in his guilt and punish himself for having made a decision that he believes cost his wife her life. He never expected to want to return to the life he once knew - but then again, he never expected to meet gorgeous, stubborn, and competitive Savannah Braden.

One passionate kiss is all it takes to crack the walls the two have built to protect themselves, and allow love to slip in.

The stores just keep getting better

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. All of the stores in the series get an A++. The author is so incredibly talented. Each one is a stand alone, but it is nice to listen to each in order to get a feel for the dynamics of the family. Each story is so different. It is now Savannah's turn at romance. The relationship between Savannah and Jack is very heartfelt. Savannah deserves real love. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities.

Heartbreaking story

It's been awhile since Melissa Foster has broken my heart, but she has managed to do it in this book. Jack's story is so heartbreaking, I had tears rolling down my face. I am so glad Savannah was his bright light in the darkness. I'm glad her sense of family made him want to reconnect with his family. And I'm really glad he and his dad had their come to Jesus conversation. Having listened to the Remington series before listening to the Bradens, I had no idea about Jack's history. Like I said, Jack's story broke my heart. But, of course, Ms Foster gave us the "HEA" with the big family get together at the end. Another BJ Harrison narration that guts you with the telling of the story of the accident. This is probably my favorite book by him because of the emotional toll. I can't imagine the toll it took on him to get into character and narrate this book.

Love these books!

Love in Bloom...my interest has bloomed with every single Braden Book. The story of Savannah & Jack is so sweet. All of these books deal with falling in love, but they all have such different story lines. Love Them!

This man is no match for a stubborn Braden........

Bursting with Love is the fifth book in The Bradens mini-series, and it features the only sister of the family, the feisty and determined Savannah Braden. After dumping her cheating boyfriend, Savannah runs away to a survivalist weekend camp with a gorgeous but irritable and brooding guide named Jack Remington. Although leery of opening herself to the possibility of being hurt by love, Savannah can't fight both her powerful pull towards Jack and the challenge of getting under his skin at every turn. Jack is still grieving the death of his wife after two years and has perfected the art of being miserable. These two together seem like a disaster in the making, but the passion and chemistry when they finally give into their desires is combustible. I liked Savannah from the very first Bradens book, and I hated watching her with her cheating boyfriend in previous books. As with so many strong, successful, beautiful women, she kept going back to the bad boy. On the surface, Jack, a former special forces soldier and modern day adventurer seems like a bad boy, but he is the best kind of sweet and loving underneath that hard exterior. As with all of Melissa Foster's stories, family drama is sprinkled throughout the book, and I teared up several times watching Jack reconnect with his family and allow himself to grieve for his deceased wife. I make the story sound heavy, but Foster employees her usual finesse to balance poignant emotions with scorching steam and a sprinkling of comedy. I already miss Jack and Savannah, and I am headed off to start Hugh Braden's story next. BJ Harrison narrates most of the books in the Love in Bloom series, and he is an ideal choice for the single narration style. Harrison performs both male and female roles with skill, but I especially love his deep, masculine cadence for the sexy male leads. His delivery is flawless, and he makes an already moving story even more touching as an audiobook. I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Savannah gets her story

Savannah is a strong independent woman who needs a man who can handle her. Jack is lost soul of a man who needs an independent woman to center him. Together they are fire and ice who find their harmony. This series is all read by the same narrator and I’m finally used to his inflection and am enjoying the stories.

Savannah can tackle anything . . . including

Manhattan was a lifestyle for Savannah Braden but it was not her life. She could rough it and find herself once again after a long awaited break-up. In the very land that Jack Remington found his peace or was it just existence. He also finds himself very intrigued by one of his guess. He found something more to great each day with and even a reason to be in the city just a little bit more. It was time that he greet the demons that had sent him on the path that found his current happiness and peace. This was a journey for them both, Savannah and Jack. A journey for them to find that extra. Savannah needing to regain herself and Jack needed to forgive himself. The passion between the two was right and awaiting them both to just give in to the possibilities. B.J. Harrison gave the back drop but there was just that something missing from fully immersing within the audio.

Be Open to Love

Bursting with Love: Love in Bloom, Book 8; The Bradens, Book 5 by Melissa Foster and narrated by B.J. Harrison Beautiful, strong and extremely capable Manhattan attorney Savannah Braden has had it with her on again off again boyfriend country music star Connor Dean. Questioning why she took him back after cheating on her multiple times, she decides to get away at a survivor camp in the mountains, hoping to rebuild her confidence and get her head and heart on straight. She doesn’t need a man in her life, but watching her brothers fall in love makes her question when will it be her turn? Savannah doesn’t count on meeting the brooding, handsome alpha Jack Remington, their pilot and survival guide for the next few days. Although he’s anything but friendly, she’s inexplicably attracted to him, from his rugged good looks to his masculine physique and although he brings new meaning to the term gruff, he shares the powerful attraction, stealing glances as if against his own will. This throws her making her question herself even more. Jack had walked away from life, leaving family and friends behind after losing his beloved wife Linda in a tragic accident two years earlier. An accident he blames himself for. He can’t get past the guilt, so he runs away to the mountains living a solitary life and punishing himself, not allowing any happiness, joy or love into his life. He is not prepared for the magnetic force of attraction he feels for Savannah and after saving her from a bobcat, they share a passionate kiss that changes everything.. Jack, confused and ruled by guilt waffles between being the broken man and self-proclaimed mean bastard he is and the old Jack wanting to reemerge. Savannah is exactly what Jack needs, but is he what she needs? Will she forever be living with Linda’s ghost or will Jack be able to finally face his past and put it to rest? This is a very emotional story of love and loss and love again, packed with intense and spontaneous heat, passion, romance and love. There are tender sweet moments, heartbreaking memories and coming to terms with the truth of what we should assume responsibility for and what is simply fate. The family reunion was particularly heartfelt and emotional. B.J. Harrison does a phenomenal job of bringing these characters to life. He has perfect timing, knowing when to speak softly and when to raise his voice, the way you do when making a point or losing your temper. Once again his cadence and different voices make it easy to follow the story, easily recognizing each character. He does an amazing job of voicing the parents, putting you in the story as if a witness to the action. Another 5 stars for Melissa Foster for bringing a story of self-forgiveness, enlightenment and letting yourself be open to the possibility of love, told in the way only she can do it justice!

Strong Savannah meets her match

Savannah goes on wilderness break to get over being cheated on and ends up falling in love with broken widower Jack Remington. Jack is the leader of this break and tries his hardest to resist her as he is still grieving the death of his wife 3years previous. This is a wonderful story which is beautifully narrated and I found myself cheering both characters on as if they were in the room with me.
