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 a light, uplifting work of women's fiction and will resonate with readers who enjoy emotional journeys of the heart with strong heroines and sexy, lovable heroes. Readers of books by Jane Porter and Beth Kendrick will enjoy Danica and Blake's story.
Review****This book was part of a blog tour I was given an ARC copy for my honest review****
Danica has always been the responsible one; she is a therapist and part of the big sister program. She doesn't have or make time for anything else, her life is boring. Blake has no real responsibilities beyond his business with his best friend; he has indiscriminate sex with any and every woman who wants him. The two of them meet at a coffee shop when Blake accidentally elbows Danica in the face; while her nose is bleeding Blake is checking out the hot chick who offers a napkin and Danica gets pissy with him. After that encounter the two of them start seeing things in their lives differently, when Blake’s best friend dies he realizes he needs to go to therapy. He goes to Danica, the two of them want each other but with Blakes anger and promiscuity issues and Danica dealing with her Little sister and biological sisters problems neither one of them may be ready or able to make things work. The synopsis of this book had me interested right away the whole forbidden love between a therapist and patient. At first I wasn't sure how the author was going to pull it off without it leaning towards creepy or weird, but the way she set it up and the interactions between Blake and Danica kept it from straying into that taking advantage territory. One of my favorite things about this book is that it had a few different sub plots in it, it wasn't just about Blake and Danicas romance and yet at the same time everything seemed to come back to the two of them. Melissa has created some great characters that are easy to relate to because they do have flaws, they are not perfect or untouchable you fall in love with them and want to fix all their problems. I can't wait to see what happens with these characters throughout the rest of the series.
