While reading The Snow Sisters series, I got a little hint of something between Max and Treat. It really got me excited to read their story. Max seemed like such a bad**s character. I couldn’t wait to see what hoops she might make handsome Treat jump through. “Isn’t that the greatest feeling? That instant when you know someone recognizes that you’re something more than what anyone else sees?” I was a little disappointed when it ended up that Max was hiding so much insecurity under her tough armor. But I’m glad that Treat was able to see through the tough and past the self-doubt and right into the amazingness that was the real Max. I so loved listening to this on audiobook! The narrator does a great job of keeping with the emotion of the story! I loved listening to this story on audiobook! The narrator really helps me feel the emotions of the characters! -4 Stars!-
I enjoyed listening to this book after reading it when it was first released. I wanted to read Treat's story after first meeting him in the previous Love in Bloom books. He repeatedly showed how well he takes care of the guests of his resorts, his family, and his friends. This is also where I read about his first interactions with Max. Max is a kind, hardworking woman who has been hurt in the past. She's amazing and I LOVED reading about how her story with Treat began. If you haven't read Melissa's books, especially the Love in Bloom series or the stores of the Braden clue, you're missing out!
Melissa Foster definitely has a way with romance and BJ Harrison is narrating the heck out of them. The way he voices all the characters differently is amazing! I just love listening to these books! Having read this book about a year or so ago and since having gone on to read all of this series to date, I have to say it was wonderful going back to the beginning of the Braden's and even nicer to listen to in my car. Treat Braden is swoon-worthy and such a sweetheart. As the oldest sibling at 37 he is ready to settle down. He just needs to convince Max that she is the one for him. Max has been hurt in the past which explains why she is a little slower going into this and insecure, but Treat has a way of making her feel so loved and cherished she eventually can't resist him. Oh they have their share of ups & downs as all couples do but with a little help from fate, they will get their HEA. Love the Braden family! Keep on listening or reading this series to get the stories of how one by one the Braden's fall in love.
TREAT BRADEN is my absolute FAVORITE Braden. And Max, what woman with her past wouldn't be in questioning everything she was going through and feeling...having been there before and not wanting to cause the same outcome as before. She fights with herself and gives enough push and pull for 5 women. But, sometimes you just KNOW and Treat knew she was for him! Yes, it took her some time to realize they were meant to be, but sometimes, it takes us time to realize what is right in front of us! The audio version also gives it a little bit extra while listening to it. I forces us to slow down and listen and really think about the characters in the book. The only thing i would have done differently is have 2 narrators, one male and one female. THANK YOU MELISSA for the first GREAT Braden couple!!
Wow!!! Lovers at Heart is such a great read but to actually listen to it is even better!!! BJ Harrison does a wonderful job bringing this book to life! Max & Treat's story is one of the best so far!!! I love that Max is such a strong independent woman. Max having a secret past just adds to the character's complexity! One of the very best parts of this series is that you can catch up on your previous favorite couples in each new book!!
The first book about the Braden's and can't wait for the rest! Treat and Max's story is one about people who try to stay away but fate intervenes. Max tries to let go of her past to focus on her future. Treat realizes that she's the one for him and needs to win her affection. A great read and a great next chapter for the love in bloom series.
The narrator brought this book to life for me! Very easy to listen to. Treat and Max are both in love, but can't seem to be in the same place at the same time! Can she trust him? Can they both overcome their demons?
