In Touched by Love...
Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she's spent her life proving it. She's moved away from her overprotective parents and built a life in New York City and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she's forced to give up the very independence she's worked so hard to achieve.
Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream - being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely - a difficult task given his attraction to one of his coworkers.
When Boyd comes to Janie's rescue, she's forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there's more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn't the only one who needs healing. Boyd's painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

What a talented author Melissa Foster is. This book is a multidimensional story that is heartwarming, healing, overcoming tragic prior events, and building a solid foundation.This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. BJ Harrison does such a great job with putting so many realistic emotions into his performance. I loved the characters of Janie and Boyd in this story. Both were independent and endearing, yet missing something until they found each other. I enjoyed their story to love, and was touched by it. This book is one of my favorites.

One of my favorite Melissa Foster stories
I listened to this book after reading it in print when it was released 2 years ago. It is STILL one of my favorites! B.J. Harrison was spot on as usual for the narration.
I was instantly drawn to the characters. I was so invested that I frequently felt my stomach flip flop with anticipation. Janie’s strong, independent personality fit so perfectly with Boyd’s drive, determination, and protectiveness. I especially loved the sweet, emotional moments they shared together.
I love how Melissa continues to be able to create characters that come from a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and challenges. Keep them coming!

A beautiful story
I never thought I would enjoy audiobooks, but I love them. They make it so easy to enjoy your book when it's difficult to read. The hours spent in the car travelling, have suddenly got so much better :)
The story of Boyd and Janie, is beautiful and touching. Janie is blind and trying to prove to everyone, including her parents, that it is not something that can hold her back. Boyd is fireman, with dreams of becoming a Doctor and is close to achieving his goal. When an accident threatens to change Janie's life and restrict her independence, for the first time she realises that she has to accept the help offered to her by Boyd. As they spend more time together, feelings deepen forcing Boyd to deal with some pain in his past he's been trying to keep hidden.
The voice of B. J. Harrison is very smooth and makes the experience of listening to the book, more enjoyable.
