"Sisters in Love" is a steamy contemporary romance with alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and very relatable for readers who enjoy new adult romance, contemporary romance, and women's fiction.
Voted BEST BOOK SERIES of 2013 by Supportive Business Moms, UK
Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister. As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.
Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.
When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.
I made it through this shit and deserve a medal for not having my sanity lost. It's hard to decided where to begin my review of this book - do I start with a hero that this a dude bro of the skiing variety who has sex in a bathroom with a random ski shop customer and doesn't bother with finding out her name OR do I start with a heroine that is a therapist because her parents' wanted her to be but she has so many damn mental and emotional hang ups that she could use a good shrink herself?
Maybe I should start with the fact that there is a cast of characters that are so fucked up in the head that this book clearly lives up to the blurb's "new adult romance" even though they are in their late twenties and mid-thirties? Or should I start with the constant binge-drinking and so casual sex that no one can have an actual relationship - in a romance novel? These men and women are not sex positive - they are over-sexed (not addicted to sex, just ruled by their damn hormones) to the point of eye rolling.
No I think I will start this review with how nasty our heroine, Danica, is about her chosen profession and how she is the worst therapist to the point of being dangerous. She enters a sexual relationship with her client (Blake) and eventually decides to give up her license so she can have her rocking orgasms. But prior to hopping into bed with a client, she often would fantasize about having sex with her client during his therapy sessions so much she wasn't listening fully to what his issues were (and there were a lot of them). She was so damn unprofessional! But she wouldn't refer him to another therapist, because she felt she was the best therapist in town/county/state and her pride wouldn't let her.
Then she started fantasizing about Blake while holding sessions with other clients, not giving them her full attention. Yet, we are told over and over again how competent she is - but to me she is a piss poor therapist who is basically a con artist she sucks so much at her job. And the whole situation with her "Little Sister" Michelle just proves again that Danica shouldn't be a therapist, she should be seeing one. Also, I am so over characters/real-life people who are in their late twenties who worry about aging and getting "old" and/or "fat." If these people are that shallow at 29, they are going to be obnixous at 39. Get your shit together and lay off the large amounts of alcohol.
0 stars and I am not going to bother with other Foster book I have in the queue. Both books are being deleted from my NOOK library pronto and I will avoid this author in the future.
