EMBRACING HER HEART is a new series for Melissa Foster. If you’ve read The Bradens and Montgomerys then you will probably know the tone for this series. Honestly, I don’t know why there are so many new series when really this book could be added to the others and it would still work. Sometimes I think it just makes things unnecessarily confusing because other than having new characters and a new setting, the books all have the same feel. Nevertheless, you can read this book as a standalone and be perfectly fine.
This particular book kind of has a love/hate relationship between the hero and heroine. Previously together, Reed and Grace have allowed some time to occur between their breakup. But once Reed appears back into Grace’s life, she doesn’t react to him the way he expects. There’s quite a bit of bickering between the two and I wasn’t a huge fan of that. It was a little over the top in some places and made me roll my eyes a lot. I guess I just didn’t believe it when the in the sentence before Reed is practically imagining Grace underneath him. So any words he said after just seemed unbelievable to me.
Since I didn’t really like the interactions between the hero and heroine, that kind of hindered how much I enjoyed this book. However, I do still think Foster writes well. I especially enjoy the way she is able to weave all the scenes together. The book flows like water, making the book very easy to devour. So I’m hoping I’ll enjoy the next book more than this one.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
