Review: Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster

Sisters in Love by Melissa Foster

Publisher: World Literary Press
Pages: 300
Format: eARC

Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  Two sisters who are completely different are trying to find out what matters most to each of them.  This book mostly focused on Danica, the older sister who has always been a therapist and yet has wanted to open a youth center for a long time.  She is in the Big Sister program and wants to use her therapy skills to help youth instead of crazy adults.  At the same time, Blake the womanizer is recovering from losing a friend in a horrible accident and seeks therapy with Danica.  The sparks fly and drama ensues.

I loved the sibling relationship and the quest for finding one's true path.  I felt for both the sisters who have felt pigeon-holed in the careers and lives that they felt were picked for them.  I know many siblings who wonder if they switched places and how it would end up.  

Caution, this book definitely had some romance to it and a few steamy scenes!  But the characters and their journey were definitely the focus of this book.  I can't wait to start the next one and find out where these sisters go from here.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (and already have it!)
