Blog Tour and Giveaway: "Touched by Love" (The Remingtons) by Melissa Foster

Touched by Love, The Remingtons #6, Love in Bloom

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream―being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely―a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

My Review:

Touched by Love is the long-awaited next book in The Remingtons series from Melissa Foster, and she does not disappoint. The characters in Touched by Love are special, and their struggles are more intense than many of the characters I've read from Ms. Foster. Janie's blindness is well depicted and as I read her scenes, I felt myself using my other senses to "see" what she is seeing in the way that she was seeing it: with her ears, with her nose, with her touch. And Boyd is the best and worst hero for her. He's wonderful from the very first page; so much so that you wonder what kind of struggles he could have in his life. But he has them, and they have made him his strong, driven, over-protective self. Which is perfect for Janie when she needs it, but smothering as she seeks to reassert her hard-earned independence. His protective streak and her independent nature may be their undoing, as each does what they think is best for them and the other, not respecting the very relationship they have fought so hard for. A wonderfully emotional, heart-tugging, sexy addition to The Remingtons and the entire Love in Bloom series.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
