Strong Savannah meets her match

Savannah goes on wilderness break to get over being cheated on and ends up falling in love with broken widower Jack Remington. Jack is the leader of this break and tries his hardest to resist her as he is still grieving the death of his wife 3years previous. This is a wonderful story which is beautifully narrated and I found myself cheering both characters on as if they were in the room with me.

One of my favorite couples!

Bursting with Love has one of my favorite couples and is one of my favorite stories by Melissa Foster. Really loved the story of Savannah Braden and Jack Remington. Jack’s overcoming a tragic past when he and Savannah meet, and Jack decides to try a relationship with Savannah and Savannah does a great job of being there and supporting Jack. I really liked being part of their journey and especially Jack’s journey and what a great ending to this story. I listened to this as an audiobook narrated by BJ Harrison. I liked how he narrated the plane ride and landing into Colorado, it made you feel like you were part of the group. It always makes me smile when Hal comes to life through this narrator, and it is something I always look forward to. I also thought he did a great job narrating Ralph as well, it was very touching. BJ Harrison did an amazing job narrating this book. I would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

Jack & Savannah!

Savannah Braden has sworn off men. After a broken heart, she takes some time off to go to a survival camp. Jack Remington is the handsome yet grumpy guide for the excursion. His wife died in an accident several years earlier, and the burden of guilt has him hiding in the wilderness. There is something about Savannah though that has heart stirring. Once again Melissa Foster captivates me with a story of relevant issues and a building love to enjoy. Jack is a mess, and Foster compassionately takes us on his journey. Heartbreaking and so clearly painful, it lets us feel everything he is going through. Savannah is a strong woman, and she has some things she needs to work through. I enjoyed these two as they both strive to be together. Plus we get glimpses of Braden family members, from siblings to cousins as well as getting a look at the Remington family. I love the family feel, it's like coming home with each story.

BJ Harrison is the voice of the Bradens and I love his easy pace and feel. Each voice is distinguishable and he makes the narration a relaxing, pleasure to hear. I also love that he keeps his voices consistent from book to book as family comes in. He is fun to listen to.

Beautiful loving story!

Beautiful loving story!
Just when I though this series couldn't get better, I have a new favorite! I loved Savannah and Jack's story! It was sweet, sexy, steamy and loving! I loved how she could get through to Jack when no one else could and how he could finally open up his heart. You'll have to listen to this book to enjoy this wonderful story. It's a must listen! I was disappointed when it ended because I wanted more of their story. It's such a fantastic book that I listened to it in 2 days!! You also get to visit with your favorite Bradens in here too and meet Jack's family. Narration was great! Looking forward to the next book!

Filled with so much heart and emotion!

Audiobook: Narrator - B.J. Harrison

Another wonderful narration by Mr. Harrison. He is officially the voice of Love and the Bradens for me! This was a clear narration, easy to follow and understand with distinctive voices and a performance that added the much needed emotion when needed.


I really enjoyed this story and to be honest, I didn’t think I would. Going in, I had not read the blurb and I did not know this hero had a deceased wife. That’s a trope that I usually avoid because it can be tricky making me believe the hero loves the heroine as much or more than he did his wife. But Jack proved my worry was for nothing. While he definitely struggled, this author wrote his story in such a way that I was filled with all the emotions he was and loved watching him heal.

Finally getting Savannah’s story was amazing as well. To be honest, I wasn’t sure who her hero would be and I was afraid it was going to be her ex. So glad Ms. Foster gave Jack to her. She was just what he needed but he was everything she wanted as well.

This is a beautiful story that dealt with so many different issues as Jack moved out from the darkness. I really would love to see this couple again further down the road with all their children.

The stores just keep getting better

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. All of the stores in the series get an A++. The author is so incredibly talented. Each one is a stand alone, but it is nice to listen to each in order to get a feel for the dynamics of the family. Each story is so different. It is now Savannah's turn at romance. The relationship between Savannah and Jack is very heartfelt. Savannah deserves real love. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities.

Heartbreaking story

It's been awhile since Melissa Foster has broken my heart, but she has managed to do it in this book. Jack's story is so heartbreaking, I had tears rolling down my face. I am so glad Savannah was his bright light in the darkness. I'm glad her sense of family made him want to reconnect with his family. And I'm really glad he and his dad had their come to Jesus conversation.

Having listened to the Remington series before listening to the Bradens, I had no idea about Jack's history. Like I said, Jack's story broke my heart. But, of course, Ms Foster gave us the "HEA" with the big family get together at the end.

Another BJ Harrison narration that guts you with the telling of the story of the accident. This is probably my favorite book by him because of the emotional toll. I can't imagine the toll it took on him to get into character and narrate this book.

Love these books!

Love in Bloom...my interest has bloomed with every single Braden Book.
The story of Savannah & Jack is so sweet. All of these books deal with falling in love, but they all have such different story lines. Love Them!

This man is no match for a stubborn Braden........

Bursting with Love is the fifth book in The Bradens mini-series, and it features the only sister of the family, the feisty and determined Savannah Braden. After dumping her cheating boyfriend, Savannah runs away to a survivalist weekend camp with a gorgeous but irritable and brooding guide named Jack Remington. Although leery of opening herself to the possibility of being hurt by love, Savannah can't fight both her powerful pull towards Jack and the challenge of getting under his skin at every turn. Jack is still grieving the death of his wife after two years and has perfected the art of being miserable. These two together seem like a disaster in the making, but the passion and chemistry when they finally give into their desires is combustible.

I liked Savannah from the very first Bradens book, and I hated watching her with her cheating boyfriend in previous books. As with so many strong, successful, beautiful women, she kept going back to the bad boy. On the surface, Jack, a former special forces soldier and modern day adventurer seems like a bad boy, but he is the best kind of sweet and loving underneath that hard exterior. As with all of Melissa Foster's stories, family drama is sprinkled throughout the book, and I teared up several times watching Jack reconnect with his family and allow himself to grieve for his deceased wife. I make the story sound heavy, but Foster employees her usual finesse to balance poignant emotions with scorching steam and a sprinkling of comedy. I already miss Jack and Savannah, and I am headed off to start Hugh Braden's story next.

BJ Harrison narrates most of the books in the Love in Bloom series, and he is an ideal choice for the single narration style. Harrison performs both male and female roles with skill, but I especially love his deep, masculine cadence for the sexy male leads. His delivery is flawless, and he makes an already moving story even more touching as an audiobook.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Love, love Jack and Savannah!

Bursting with Love will make you laugh, cry and sigh. Jack Remington is grieving his wife that he lost to a tragic accident. He has shut everyone out until a sassy auburn-haired beauty joins one of his survivor weekend trips. Savannah Braden is coming off a bad relationship and just wants to find herself again. When Savannah finds out the real reason behind Jack’s grouchy attitude, she is determined to help him heal. Little did she know, he helped her heal as well.

This is an AWESOME story! You will not be disappointed! BJ Harrison is a great narrator.
