Every time I pick up a Melissa Foster book, I know that i will not be disappointed as always this book was well written and fluid. Touched By Love is a lovely, emotional and heartwarming read. I absoloutly adored this couple. Touched By Love is Janie and Boyd's story. Janie is a technical editor, she is also blind, but it doesn't define her, she is also strong, determined, inquisitive, smart, funny and independent. Janie's parents were overprotective and caused her to feel oppressed which leads it to being very difficult for her to accept help or compliments. Boyd is a firefighter and paramedic, who has dreams of attending medical school, its his goal and he doesn't want anything to stand in his way. He is your perfect book boyfriend, strong, virile, driven, confident and honest. The characters are broken and flawed, they have real issues which makes them completely relate-able. Janie and Boyd both have scars, his are on the outside, hers are on the inside. They had such a strong connection not only physically but also emotionally and their banter is full o sexual innuendo. Melissa Foster has an amazing ability to create stories where you completely connect with the characters, so much so that you become invested in their story and feel like you are reading about friends rather than fictional characters. I love how Melissa interweaves her books so that the characters, places and events are interwoven and their stories continue. It feels a bit like seven degrees of separation with Melissa's books there are always these links that you pick up if you are familiar with her work. I love how she included both Heath, from the Wild Boys and Cash and Siena from Flames of Love, and Dex and Ellie from Game of Love within this book. I look forward to the next release from Melissa!
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.
