Book Review: This Is Love by Melissa Foster

Stars: 2 out of 5

This is Love is book two in Melissa Foster’s Harmony Pointe series. This series is a spin off of her Sugar Lake trio series. I REALLY enjoyed Sugar Lake so like every fan, I continued to read the stories of these fun characters.

This book is the story of famed actress, Remington Aldrich (aka Remi Devine) and her “HottieGuard” Mason. In a previous book we learn Remi has been victim to a stalker. This story takes us through a bit of a “who done it” as we enjoy the slow-burn of these two characters. At times I felt certain segments could have used more development and others were somewhat cheesy. Other segments were more complete and satisfying. To get the full experience, I would start by power reading the Sugar Lake books. If you are looking for an entertaining summer read that moves fast and keeps you flipping pages, I would recommend!

Review of: Love Like Ours (Sugar Lake #3) by Melissa Foster

 4 out of 5 stars

Love Like Ours was such a treat! So much so, it should come in a Sweetie Pie Bakery box!

The Dalton family returns in this third book of the Sugar Lake series. This time, it’s Talia’s story. The careful professor has been hesitant to date, but her sisters aren’t having it.  This loving tale reminds us that we never know what anyone else is going through in their personal lives. Will Derek’s interesting career choice become a deal breaker? It’s always hard to resist the magic of her mother’s love potions (much to the eye rolls of the family).

Melissa’s descriptions and word choice for character dialog is so realistic, you really get to know the characters and their different personalities. I smiled and giggled many times throughout the book. So many amusing scenes.  The romance is off the chart in this one. Page after page, I got sucked in and lost track of time! Another great piece of this book is how Derek’s drawings create a vivid mental picture of important moments of their story. So clever!

I hope we see more in this series because I would LOVE to know what will happen with Piper, and if Ben and Aurelia ever get their acts together. Will Fletch find a love interest? I’d also enjoy reading more about the success of Derek’s business venture in the future. So many places to go with this intriguing family.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

“I don’t know, Teach. Is this like when adults offer kids candy to take a ride in their van? I’m smart. You’ve got to show me the candy first.”

“You can trust me to be careful with your heart.”

“Which one called you–the sugar pusher, the not-so-sweet mama, or the one who thinks s** is a breakfast entree?”  (this cracked me up)

“Life is short,” India said. “We capture the good times when we can.”

I love Melissa Foster’s books! She had me at Treat Braden! I loved the Love in Bloom Series and now made my way through her newest Sugar Lake books. I can’t wait for Book 3!! These characters are so wonderful and the stories keep you turning pages. I was rooting for them the whole way! I need more!
