Series: The Remingtons Series #6
Publisher: World Literary Press
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, 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 co-workers.
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.
Boyd Hudson is a firefighter with a tragic past. He’s working hard to accomplish his dream – get into medical school. Boyd is strong, fiercely loyal, protective of his family and friends, hot, charming, hard working and has a huge giving heart. Trust me, Boyd is not only amazing, he’s the ultimate book boyfriend!
Janie is fiercely independent, she moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, lives next door to her best friend Kiki (is there going to be a book about Kiki? I loved her!) and she loves her job as a technical editor. Janie is also blind and she wants to demonstrate that her disability doesn’t define her.
Boyd is instantly attracted to Janie but he hasn’t got much time for dating because he’s totally focused on his dream. Janie thinks that Boyd is a player but she likes to flirt and talk to him. Until fate stepped in and Janie has an accident. Fortunately, Boyd is there to help her, support her and he takes her to the hospital, but she needs to lean on him for a few days and that makes their attraction to each other impossible to deny.
Their story is red hot, funny, sweet, emotional, unique, beautifully written and before you know it, you’re laughing and crying with the characters and you’re deeply invested in their journey.
I’ve read a few of Melissa Foster’s books but Touched by Love is definitely her best. And it’s not a 5 star book, it’s a 6 star above and beyond! One of my 2016 top reads!
