Review ~ Lovers At Heart


Lovers at Heart

Melissa Foster

LAH.jpgHandsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he’s going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she’s never needed a man to help her find her way–until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she’d spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain–including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever–and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.

Lovers at Heart is a super sweet freebie.
Max is a woman with a less than fabulous history with men; while it isn’t extensive, it is painful. So when Treat made her feel lower than dirt, she bolted. Six months later, she’s stuck. Treat is a guy who’s a smidgen nervous to let himself fall for a chick. Okay, maybe a little more than that. but he’s a good guy. The characters were okay, but neither really clicked with me. I found their inner thoughts repetitive and based almost completely on assumptions. I get that people have communication issues, but sheesh. Once they do start talking it’s as if nobody’s listening.
The plot was decent, and I definitely wanted to know what happened next, but I found myself bored and skimming too often. I dunno, I think I like my men a little more forceful. Not that Treat was a pansy, but… nope he kinda was. I get why he backed off, and totally respect it, but the dude needs to grow a pair. Maybe I’m just put off by emotional men. And Max’s indecisiveness and waffling had me sighing.
Bottom line: fine for a free read, but if this had been the only book I’d read from Foster, I probably wouldn’t go back. Game of Love, though, I liked much better so I’m chalking this up to a case of “it didn’t work for me.”
