#ARCBookReview and #Giveaway Whisper of Love (Love in Bloom, The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor #5) by Melissa Foster

NEW RELEASE........
Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.

When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.

Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.

WHISPER OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**



ARC Book Review:

I had been intrigued by Tempest Braden's character ever since I read the previous books in Love in Bloom series. Tempest has always been the too careful sister, more interested in her music than in chasing romance but when she meets Nash Morgan, the attraction is immediate and intense.

Frankly speaking, insta attraction that turns to love in a span of days or weeks is something that acts as a con in a book for me but some books dare me to dislike them and this is one such book. I could not help but fall for Nash and Tempest. The buildup of their relationship is quick but so effortlessly done that every event, every emotion looks natural and has the reader thoroughly engrossed.

The whole parent angle is so beautifully developed that being a parent myself, I could be seen nodding at each observation and highlighting all the beautiful quotes from the book!

Loved loved loved Philip. He is so cute and adorable. Nash is the kind of hero we all root for. He is brooding, intense, serious and gruff on the outside but with a heart of gold. Emotionally scarred by a few events in his past, he is over protective of his son and afraid to take a leap of faith towards another chance at love. However, he is unable to hold back his feelings for Tempest.

Tempest is the serious and careful girl we all have met atleast once in our lives.She is passionate towards her career and too cautious and afraid to trust when it comes to romance.

The chemistry between Nash and Tempest is emotionally rich, smoking hot and realistically portrayed that everyone will connect with them.

I am a big fan of this series and of Melissa Foster's writing and she doesn't disappoint. Her narration is crisp, engaging and very enlightening. Reading her books is like experiencing life and I always learn so much about people and behaviour from her stories.

All in all, Whisper of Love by Melissa Foster is another entertainer and a great addition to her Love in Bloom series. Despite being part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone story. I enjoyed the book and recommend it to all adult romance lovers. 4.5 out of 5 stars to it from me andI look forward to reading more from the author in the future.





I received an ARC from the author and the tour organizers and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.

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.

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.

Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance. 

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?
