** Blog Tour / Book Review ** TOUCHED BY LOVE by Melissa Foster



In Book 6 of The Remingtons series, Melissa Foster takes us on a journey of finding love when you least expect it and allowing yourself to heal and blossom after suffering life’s injustices.  The characters are fun and super easy to connect with, and in no time, you’re right there invested in if they make it or not!

Firefighter Boyd Hudson happens to be in the right place at the right time to lend his friend Janie a hand when she has an accident that hinders her being able to get around the way she likes to. She’s forced to lean on him for support, and he’s forced to admit the attraction he’s felt for her since the first day he laid eyes on her.

Fiercely independent Janie Jansen knows that there are way bigger things in life than being blind, and she works hard to prove it to those around her.  She loves and enjoys life and her freedom, and doesn’t think highly of being sidelined in any way.  She has to work at letting Boyd help her when she needs it.

Before they know it, they are falling hard and fast and can’t imagine their lives without each other, but will they each be able to get over their own demons in order to accept the love the other one has to give?

Touched by Love
Love in Bloom: The Remingtons #6
By: Melissa Foster

Released May 18, 2016
World Literary Press
Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she’s spent her life proving it. She’s moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she’s forced to give up the very independence she’s worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream—being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely—a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie’s rescue, she’s forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there’s more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn’t the only one who needs healing. Boyd’s painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.
