Kurt Remington was a writer of thriller books. He was trying to write when he heard a woman screaming “Pepper.” He looked out and saw a woman running out into the ocean. She went under and he ran out and saved her and her dog. Leanna was one hot woman and a free spirit. She made jams and jellies to sell at the flea market. Her dog Pepper loved Kirk. He obeyed Kurk, but didn’t obey Leanna at all. He finally asked her to go on a date. Then things got steamed up. Leanna was offered a contract to sell her jams by a big company. Now she has to decide if she wants her dream to come true or go live with Kurk in New York.
I love the close family aspect of Melissa’s books. She has a great narrator.
I have realized since I have started listening to Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom series that I love the stories even more then when I read them. There is something magical about hearing their voices, hearing their feelings, and remembering what endeared them to me in the first place. BJ Harrison is so talented. He has a calm, easy listening voice that portrays the characters perfectly.
Kurt is wonderful. He is not playboy. He stays to himself, works non-stop writing, and isn't looking for love. Which means of course he meets Leanna and she disrupts his entire world. I love how opposite these two are. One is organized and settled in their way while the other is unorganized, messy, and is just finding out what they are meant to do in life. Together they work. They keep each other grounded and real while also learning how to give of themselves and change some of their habits.
As always, with this entire series, I found myself picturing Kurt and dreaming of him. Treat is still my all time crush, but Kurt is definitely ranked high in my book crush list. I will recommend this entire series, including Read, Write, Love, to any romance readers.
Leanna and Kurt are opposites. He is organised and enjoys the solace of his beach house for his writing. Leanna, on the other hand is the complete opposite. She is unorganised and works in chaos, yet they cannot stop thinking about each other.
They meet by chance when Kurt comes Leanna's rescue on the beach during the rain, and when Leanna returns to say thank you, things get a little and they realise there is some truth in the old saying, opposites attract.
During Kurt and Leanna's story, we also begin to meet the girls at Seaside and start to understand the closeness and feeling of family they share. This story only touches on these themes, yet they all have their own story to tell.
They have different personality's and shouldn't be a match but from the moment Kurt rescues Leanna and her dog he is hooked. She is quirky, untidy and not sure what she wants in life, he is organised, tidy bordering on OCD and knows what he wants in life. They form an easy friendship which blossoms into a full blown romance. And on top of it all he loves her dog. This is a great introduction to the next series from Melissa the Seaside series. We get to meet Leanna's best friends who all have different sides to them but all fit. Loved this book, had the right amount of laughter, tears and romance. Definitely worth a listen.
