R E V I E W ➠ Sweet, Sexy Heart by Melissa Foster

(The Bradens & Montgomerys: Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls #8)


Amber Montgomery is perfectly happy with her quiet life. She loves running her bookstore, taking long walks with Reno, her Labrador retriever seizure-response dog, and spending time with her close-knit family. She’s never needed thrills the way some of her sisters have. In an effort to control her epilepsy, she tries to avoid anything that creates too much excitement or stress—including relationships. When Amber hosts a book signing for famed-athlete-turned-author Dash Pennington, he’s everything she’s spent her life avoiding: loud, aggressive, and far too handsome, as proven by the hordes of women who surround him everywhere he goes. Amber can’t ignore the sparks flying between her and Dash, but this is a no-brainer for her: Ignore their chemistry and hold her breath until he leaves town.
Dash Pennington has spent his life running. Running the ball in for a touchdown, running from town to town to appease his public relations reps, and for years, running into the arms of too many women to count. He’s also an expert at protecting—his reputation, his family, and lately, his sanity. But he’s ready to make a change. When he comes to the sleepy little town of Oak Falls, Virginia, and witnesses the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen living the life he craves, she refuses to have anything to do with him. But now that Dash has found the one thing he doesn’t want to run from, he’ll stop at nothing to win her over.

RELEASE DATE: August 4, 2021

Not my first read by the author and if you know my reading style even a little YOU KNOW I love MF books and this series, and this book blew my mind in the most romantic way possible!!

DASH is the most dreamy, sexy, sweet, smart, handsome and fun Bookboyfriend I have read in a while! I fell in love him from page one. He is just outgoing, fun so so so ROMANTIC AND SWOON WORTHY I can’t express it enough. When he set his sights on a little cute bookworm, he couldn’t stop himself. After all she made him feel something he has never, and he has been living his life out there and in the crowd if you will. Amber is the sweet everyone knows about her girl in town that battles with seizures and is happy with her little slow life with her adorable service dog by her side. She gets to do what she loves, run her book store and well she is content with it all. Until Dash walks into her little work and offers her something bigger. The question is can she let go of that fear or fears in her case and give this big life a go?

I freaking loved these two together. It warmed my heart to watch them with each other and I cried, laughed, swooned and happy teared to the end. This book will warm your heart, and if you want a good hearted hero and a sweet small town girl romance, this is for you!
