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.
Sisters in Love is the first book I’ve read by Melissa Foster and if all of her books are this well written it will not be my last. I absolutely adored Sisters in Love; I laughed, I cried and in the end it had me wondering if I was doing justice to my life.
Danica Snow’s character was the heart of the story for me. She is a smart, capable, and hardworking therapist. Her character was totally believable to me and I related to her instantly. Her internal struggles; overlapped with her patient’s therapy sessions had me intrigued in how looking at someone else’s issues could potentially bring out changes and improvements in oneself. Danica is that “perfect” sister you wish you never had, but you quickly realize that Danica is not perfect and has her own issues to deal with.
Blake Carter is the ultimate playboy and we are introduced to him in an early scene where Danica and him “run” into each other. I despised him instantly and muttered “asshole” after that scene; I thought I would never enjoy Blake’s character, but I was wrong. Blake suffers a life altering event and begins to explore what he needs out of life. He ends up going to Danica for therapy and from those sessions we begin to learn more about Blake and what makes him tick. From that point on I was taken with Blake; his internal explorations felt real and meaningful to me, as well as the relationship development with Danica.
The story is mainly about Danica and Blake but we are introduced to a couple of minor characters; Danica’s younger sister Kaylee mainly. Here story is in Sisters in Bloom, so I will be picking that one up. I also enjoyed Danica’s Big Sister relationship with Michelle; I was touched with her commitment and advice to the younger girl. That subplot blended seamlessly into the story and added depth to Danica’s character.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed Sisters in Love. It left me thinking of my life, feelings and relationships (in a good way). It’s a quick read on the kindle at only 195 pages, so if you are looking for a strong contemporary romance this is one worth checking out.
