Book Review For: SWEPT INTO LOVE by Melissa Foster
Swept into Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders): Gage Ryder - Melissa Foster

'SWEPT INTO LOVE' by Melissa Foster is Book Five in "The Ryders" Series . This is the story of Sally and Gage. I have not yet read the other books in this series so for me this was a standalone book.
Sally lost her husband some years ago leaving her with a Son to raise. Within a few months after his death she meets Gage along with being her friend is her coworker. Gage has even helped her son Rusty when he needs a father figure / friend.
Now Rusty is 20 years old and Sally is more on her own than when they first met. Gage has been pretty open about his feelings for Sally and that he would like to have a relationship with her. Sally on the other hand finds Gage attractive ...to much so she thinks but also values his friendship with her and her son. Sally fears are that if they have a relationship and they break it off then her son would be hurt by the lost of Gage.
This was a more mature romance story but nerveless a really good one!
Enjoyed it!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Chased by Love - Melissa Foster

I enjoyed Chased by Love. It's a great addition to the Love in Bloom series. The book shows the importance of communication and not judging a book by it's cover.

I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters.

I adore Trish, like the rest of her family. She's kind hearted, yet she has a feisty streak that makes me very entertaining.

Boone was not who I expected him to be when I first started reading the book. He's so much better than what I imagined him to be. The scene where Boone takes in the kitten made me start wondering if Boone truly is as irresponsible and arrogant as he seems.

Even Boone's family seems like they'd be a fun bunch to get to know more, especially Lucky. I would love to see more of Lucky or Lucky having his story.

I really enjoyed reading how Boone and Trish would communicate and talk through their issues. They were able to make it past many hurdles by discussing their thoughts and feelings.

The book did leave me curious about one main thing, how is Jude, Boone's bandmate, doing?

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Claimed by Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders, Book 2): Duke Ryder - Melissa Foster

I truly enjoyed Claimed By Love. The setting is well described and seems like it'd be a relaxing place to be. I love how close those who live on the island are. It reminds me of a typical small town, much like I grew up in.

The characters are truly what make this story fantastic. I love the strong value of family that both the main characters have and how close they are with their own family.

Gabriella seems like a strong, fiery woman most of the time. There were a few times when I wanted to shake her and remind her she has the opportunity to change the island she loves for the better during the times she didn't want the island to change or had a hard time talking about the investment. I adore Gabriella's immediate and extended family. They seem very kind hearted, amusing, caring, and nosy.

To me, Duke's character seems more laid-back and easy going than tough businessman. His desire to get to know the residents of the island once he got there amazed me. It made me think he cares for them, their opinion, and their comfort and would put that into consideration with the investment deal. The way he communicates with the other characters pleases me. He is open and honest with them. Duke doesn't give up when things get rough.

I can't wait to read more Ryder stories. I wouldn't mind some Liakos novels either. Gabriella's brothers seem like they'd be fun to read more about.

Ryders Ridge - Charlotte Nash

I enjoyed Ryders Ridge, which told the story of Dr Daniella Bell, who runs away from an unfortunate incident in a city hospital to a country practice. I found the characters likeable (except for the ones I wasn't supposed to like) and the novel seems to be well researched (not being familiar with country life I can't be sure, but it sounded convincing to me!). The story progressed well and was engaging. Very entertaining.

Ryders Ridge
Ryders Ridge - Charlotte Nash When tragedy shakes Dr Daniella Bell’s well-ordered career in a busy city hospital, she beats a hasty retreat to the sleepy Queensland town of Ryders Ridge, determined to try to put her past behind her.

What she doesn’t count on is the effect the charming cattle station heir, Mark Walker, will have on her – or the impact of their affection on others’ plans for the cattle property which has been in the family for three generations.

With “Ryders Ridge”, author Charlotte Nash has created a story which, although encompassing Daniella and Mark’s growing relationship, also includes a strong supporting cast and a plot line which weaves cleverly through underlying issues around Daniella’s patients’ lives.

It’s not all smooth sailing for Daniella and Mark – with the cattle station struggling to make a profit and Daniella’s past playing havoc with her emotions and professional demeanour, it takes a near tragedy for her to put her life into perspective and make a decision which will change her life forever.

This is an easy read, with enough tension to keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Nash returns to Ryders Ridge in future endeavours – there’s something about the place which is truly special.
