Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster


Sisters in Love (Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters #1)

Synopsis:

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.

Review:

Sisters in Love was an interesting book. It almost felt like self help book, like if you have the same issues as the characters Danica will help you too. It was a bit odd. 

Danica is a by the book no nonsense therapist. She doesn't really have a life, and doesn't really have friends or relationships. Blake bumps into her at he coffee shop while waiting in line and he is like the perfect human male. She tries to stop thinking about him, but he is just way too good looking! How can she ever not think of him? So of course she is horrible to him because he is a player and she likes him.

Blake is a player. He admits it. He feels bad about himself for sleeping with any women who wants to. Then his bff passes away and he is suddenly so upset he needs to talk to someone and change his ways. There are a few questions as to who his friend really was, is Blake really a good friend, is he a good person, can he be? Really Blake has issues and he tries to get help. Of course the help is in the form of therapy with Danica. Shock surprise. Of course the physical attraction is apparently almost too much for both of them.

Somehow through therapy they fall in love, but Danica can't do anything because he is her patient! So there is just page after page of her shrink talk how to fix yourself if you have any of the issues that her clients have. It bored me. I understand why parts were in there, but it was way too much for me. It just seemed like the story was secondary to the therapy a lot of the time.

I didn't really buy Danica and Blake being in love. Somehow it just felt wooden. Then Danica's sisters issues...I just didn't care. It wasn't the worst book ever, but it wasn't that entertaining either. I won't be reading any more in the series.

Rating: 2/5
