    “Have you seen the way you look at me? Baby, we were made for each other.” Melissa Foster is in a league of her own when it comes to inspiring, heartfelt, sexy romance that gives you all the feels. This book should come with a couple of warning labels, namely "Readers will be prone to swooning hard over the hero", "Even the non-believers will start believing real, true love really is possible" and “Beware: you’ll wish you were the heroine”. You have been warned! “Be less you, so I don’t want you “Have you seen the way you look at me? Baby, we were made for each other.” Melissa Foster is in a league of her own when it comes to inspiring, heartfelt, sexy romance that gives you all the feels. This book should come with a couple of warning labels, namely "Readers will be prone to swooning hard over the hero", "Even the non-believers will start believing real, true love really is possible" and “Beware: you’ll wish you were the heroine”. You have been warned! “Be less you, so I don’t want you as much.” Dash really is swoony and romantic. I mean, he can't help it, that's just who he is. The former-football-player-turned-writer who comes to Oak Falls for a book signing and ends up seeing the most beautiful woman there. He knows she's different, and he knows he wants to get closer. And he literally romances her. I mean, this guy... I can't even. The grumpy, closed-off ones may be my favorites, but if I ever come across a guy like this in real life, I'm never letting him go. "When I saw you across the barn at the jam session, you outshined everyone.” Amber is such an incredible heroine. She lives and owns a bookstore in her hometown. She has the most amazing friends and family (it wouldn't be a Melissa Foster book without those now, would it?), and she hasn't allowed herself to experience so many things, even love because she has a health condition and she needs to be in control. She can't afford to lose it. “Why are you sad?” “I’m not. I’m happy. You’ve seen all of me, and you’re still here." I can't really help but feel closer to Amber than I felt to any of the heroines in Melissa's books so far. You see, she missed out on a lot of the stuff teenagers do because of her epilepsy. She never thought she'd experience real love because of it, because who would want her when there's so many girls out there? As someone with two chronic diseases who’s been through similar things, I can relate. It really is hard. And it made me like her even more. “Look at you, making all my teenage dreams come true.” “Maybe you can make one of my adult fantasies come true.” The instant connection between them really is something. Amber tries to resist everything about Dash. She tries to focus on the fact that he is possibly a player, and that she’s just one more woman, and that he’s only passing through town. It's so cute to see how he shatters all her defenses, one by one, and how they communicate. How open they are with each other, especially since they're both people for whom trust doesn't come easy. “I want to light up the sky for her," What won me over were the small gestures of affection. The letters. The acorns. The stars. The just-being-there. The experiences they’d never had and shared with each other. The way Dash acted when Amber had a seizure, how he made her feel safe, reassured and protected. And look, it also wouldn't be a Melissa Foster book without the steamy scenes. Yep, definitely. These two are sizzling. "He pictured her fifty years from now, with gray hair, her face mapped with wrinkles, still outshining everyone else. He knew he’d be even more captivated by her, because their home would be full of acorns and scrawled sentiments, and their hearts would be full of a lifetime of loving memories." I can't help but feel there's a message in this book and I hope people get it. Sweet, Sexy Heart really is about love. About the fact that when you’re in love it doesn’t matter if you have a health condition. You can work through anything because people who love you will always be there for you. What matters is what's inside, and that's what people fall in love with. This book tugged at my heartstrings and made its home inside my heart.

    This book is full of sweetness goodness. Just like the title. Miss Foster proofs herself again that she can write many range of romance book. Dash and Amber are sweet and cute together. The story is min drama. It is small town romance with a recluse heroine. Dash being handsome and so charming. I like reading his POV. Sweet, Sexy Heart is so sweet. 4 stars

    I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Sweet, Sexy Heart, as the name suggests, was sweet, sexy and full of heart. In her note to readers, Foster stated that Dash Pennington may yet be her most swoon worthy hero and I definitely have to agree with her. I will even go further and say Sweet, Sexy Heart may be one of the best books I have for the year. I had fun returning to Oak Falls. Amber intrigued me I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Sweet, Sexy Heart, as the name suggests, was sweet, sexy and full of heart. In her note to readers, Foster stated that Dash Pennington may yet be her most swoon worthy hero and I definitely have to agree with her. I will even go further and say Sweet, Sexy Heart may be one of the best books I have for the year. I had fun returning to Oak Falls. Amber intrigued me from the moment of her introduction in the series. She is a sweetheart, kind and loved by all she came in contact with. However, having to deal with epilepsy led to her placing limitations on her life. Spontaneity did not feature in her world. To keep the seizures in check, she had to avoid overly stressful situations and keep her emotions under control. Although she finds pleasure in operating her own bookstore and spending time with her family and service dog, she dreams of one day finding the man of her dreams; someone who like her lived a sedate life. Enters Dash Pennington, however, he was unlike anyone she was looking for. Dash  a retired football player turned motivational speaker and author, is looking to promote his book in several bookstores throughout the country. Amber’s bookstore would be his first stop. Falling in love was the furthest thing from Dash’s mind. However, when he laid eyes on Amber, he knew he found his everlasting love. If only he could convince her they were meant for each other. When Dash was first introduced, he exuded an arrogant vibe. However, as his layers started peeling away, what came to light was a confident man who was all heart. He knew what he wanted and had no qualms about pursuing his goals and with Amber; he pulled out all the stops. For someone who claimed to know nothing about romance, he had it oozing from his pores. The defining moment for me was his reaction when she had a seizure. I loved him before, but at this point I fell in love with him all over again. That moment had me reaching for tissues. Dash and Amber shared sweet moments, but their intimate times burned up the pages. At one point  thought Amber would have developed a seizure during this time. Thank goodness that was not the case. I enjoyed the camaraderie between the characters. It was a treat to see how protective  everyone was towards Amber, but what I  most was watching her out of her shell and embracing all the things she missed out on while growing up. Conclusion/Recommendation To conclude Sweet Sexy, Heart is a beautiful, heartwarming story of unconditional love. Fans of steamy romance set in a small town will love this latest offering from the queen of sexy and heartwarming stories.This review was originally posted on Totally Addicted to Reading

Whether you've read Melissa Foster before or new to her books, be ready for declarations of love, close families, tight friendships, and a happily ever after. Amber Montgomery lives a quiet life with her seizure response dog Reno and the last thing she needs in her life is to get wrapped up in retired football player turned author, Dash Pennington. Dash feels a spark when he first lays eyes on Amber and pulls out all the stops to get her to give him a chance. Dash is always on the go, and the life Amber has built to hold her epilepsy seizures at bay isn't prepared for being in a relationship with him. When here seizures starts interfering with Dash's schedule, she feels like a burden while that's the furthest thing on his mind. Will she being able to trust in Dash's honesty and unwavering love in her, or will she revert to her old way of living. I've been waiting for Amber's story. The little we got to see of her in past books made me wish for her happily ever after. She turned out to be just as kind, sweet, and lovely as I expected she would be. Amber is always doing kind and thoughtful things for those around her, and she's a hopeless romantic. Unfortunately I didn't love Dash 🙈 I wanted to, but he came of as just a bit too cheesy, a bit too charming and a little too good to be true. Many readers love that in a romance hero, but I prefer mine to be a bit more rough around the edges. Even the "faults" he had didn't feel like faults. Anyway that doesn't stop the intimate scene between them being hot as hell. Melissa Foster once again delivers quality bedroom scenes. Sweet, Sexy Heart by Melissa Foster is a very low angst, high steam romance novels. Romantic carriage rides through the park, love letters, passionate kisses , and slow dances make this a charming easy read.

And Sweet, Sexy Heart is in fact just that- so full of all the sweetness, all the sexy, and so much heart.

And Sweet, Sexy Heart is in fact just that- so full of all the sweetness, all the sexy, and so much heart. Our heroine, bookstore owner Amber, leaves a quiet and steady lifestyle with her dog Reno, one she’s chosen to keep her epilepsy in check. So, the last thing she expects, or needs, is to find herself charmed by retired footballer turned writer, Dash Pennington, a man whose lifestyle and energy are the antithesis of the safe bubble she’s created for herself. But Dash is enamoured- and he’ll do anything to win over the sweet Amber. And woo her he does, but as she starts to fall for the charming athlete, her medical condition starts to take a toll on her and Dash’s life, and she worries that his love for her is a burden that can’t be overcome. I just adored Amber- she’s sweet, compassionate, incredibly loving and gracious. And as someone whose own medical history as at times wreaked havoc on my lifestyle choices, I related to her so intensely. I loved her gentle soul and her romantic spirit- and I just loved her with Dash. Though, to be honest, I didn’t trust Dash at first, like Amber, I worried his love was too good to be true. He was just so authentic, so swoony, so dreamy- I just kept waiting for the shoe to drop, but it turns out he’s just a sweetie, and I loved how earnestly he loved Amber. Their story is lower-angst- and felt like reading a sexy Hallmark movie. Romantic overtures, declarations of love, charming friends and small town magic moments. Sweet, Sexy Heart is a totally charmer- the perfect feel good romance to lift the spirits and fill your heart.

Amber has dealt with having seizures from a young age and she know that taking things easy and keeping her emotions in check are the best way to limiting her chances of having one, it's a sad thought that she cannot be spontaneous and just do something reckless once in a while but she's content living in her cottage and running her Bookstore in Oak Falls, Virginia. She has a loving family and Reno, her service dog is always there when she needs him...what more could a girl want? Dash has retired from pro football and is releasing a book, he needs to do a promo tour for his book but first he's looking for some downtime so he goes to visit a friend. The first time Dash sets eyes on Amber he knew there was something special about her and he was determined to get her to go on a date with him. The chemistry was great but what really made this story is all the romantic things Dash did. You really can't help falling for a guy like him, and ladies I'll warn you now your going to expect more from your significant other after reading this book. If you enjoy Steamy Contemporary Romances, small town romances, or large family romances this book is for you.

    What I love most about Sweet, Sexy Heart is the message hiding within the story. Foster goes out of her way to create a beautiful soul that is uniquely perfect despite the flaws she sees in herself. Amber is the manifestation of what is often forgotten.

    TOUCHDOWN in the stacks, because Dash is Melissa Fosters' swooniest hero yet. As a child of someone that has epilepsy, this book was a breath of fresh air on the matter. Not that it shied away from the severity of the disorder in true Melissa Foster fashion, you can tell the topic was greatly researched. This book touched my soul, and tugged at my heart strings. Super Swoony, Super Sexy, and definitely a must read book. Dash is as charming as he is sweet.

Amber is sweet and shy and comes out of her shell with Dash, not that he was too pushy he allowed her to make moves on her timeline, but holy cow when you get to the alert necklace scene be ready to fan yourself and laugh out loud at the same time. I am thankful for the way the seizure scenes are written, as a reader you get to view what someone like myself with my mother, deals with when she has a seizure. They were handled with dignity and care showing the world what happens when you are watching the person you love essentially become helpless in your arms. These hit home for me and the tears definitely fell in a good way, that someone can put the words and the emotion on the page to what a person feels, both the person with epilepsy and their loved ones during a time of chaos and uncertainty.

Amber Montgomery, a bookshop owner, suffers from epilepsy, but she has it under control and leads a quiet small-town life. Dash Pennington is a high profile ex-footballer who is launching his debut novel; he’s starting his book tour at Amber’s shop, but arrives in town early to have a break from his schedule. Amber may have a crush on Dash, but he’s not someone she would really get involved with. Dash’s bad boy footballer reputation precedes him, and he’s warned him off Amber, but the image that fans have of him aren’t the real Dash; he’s loyal and thoughtful, putting family and friends first. It takes an acorn and a determined man to break down Amber’s barriers, but will Dash’s busy lifestyle and her stay-at-home dreams ever find a compromise? This is a very sweet loving (and hot) romance, which tackles epilepsy in an open way without it feeling like a lecture. I enjoyed the small-town setting and how close and supportive Amber’s family are. There are secondary characters from other books for those who follow the series, or for new readers, those characters may pique their interest enough to pick up and fall in love with more of Foster’s couples.

    Sweet Sexy Heart is Dash and Amber's story. I have really been looking forward to this one since reading the epilogue in Hot for Love. I absolutely loved this story. I always say that I am adding a new name to my book boyfriend list. If my favorite authors keep writing characters like Dash, I am going to just have to eventually fill an entire book. Dash was adorable in his pursuit of Amber. He was all in from day one and it was great. These two had amazing chemistry as well. I also adored Amber. Sweet Sexy Heart is Dash and Amber's story.

    “I came to Oak Falls looking for a break, and I found the truest, deepest love imaginable with you, my wild thing.” Sweet, Sexy Heart is small-town romance PERFECTION! I am not kidding when I say that I smiled the entire way through this book. Internally, I was sobbing happy tears. I LOVED these characters.

I am not kidding when I say that I smiled the entire way through this book. Internally, I was sobbing happy tears. I LOVED these characters. Dash and Amber were sweet and sexy (see what I did there?). Dash has got to be one of the--if not most--swoon-worthy heroes I've had the pleasure of reading about. And Amber? I want to be her so bad! She's warm, sassy, and living my dream life. The small-town setting of Oak Falls, the big families, the dirty grandmas, the book-store, it all comes together to make this wonderful story. The author packs some wisdom into this romantic comedy. Dash and Amber's story is about living life to the fullest and staying loyal to passion, rather than to fear and safety. It was the first time I read about a character with epilepsy. It made me think about how hard it would be to live with the unease that you could lose control at anytime and how it might feel to love someone who had to live differently and could get hurt at any moment. Dash's toddler smile had nothing on mine while reading Sweet, Sexy Heart. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Im bawling my eyes at 12:30am, and that fine. Im fine. **insert Ross Geller’s gif** This story was beautiful. Honestly, their love was so pure and literally a match made In heaven. Have you ever seen a couple and think: they deserve each other? They connect at a different level. That’s them. Dash and Amber are perfect, which is sad that I don’t know them irl lol Dash is everything you wish a man had/was. He cared and loved with his whole heart that literally everyone could feel it.

Everyone felt his love for amber, his willingness to be everything she needs without skipping a Beat, so selflessly that everyone was actually rooting for him! Amber was just scared and I loved her for that. She knew her limits, not limitations cause those are placed upon, and she learned how let someone else in. And CAN I HAVE ME SOME RENO LOVING? I swear that at this point in my life I need one! Everyone deserves this kind of love❤️ 10/10!!!!❤️❤️✨✨

Hosting a book signing for Dash she is torn between disliking him and being attracted to him which leads to some fun and games. I love stories set in small towns and for me Oak Falls, Virginia sounds like a wonderful town to escape too. Dash falls for Amber and is determined to win her heart, but he has an uphill battle as she is just as determined to avoid him. I loved the push and pull dynamic of their relationship and it was entertaining to watch it play out. Sweet, Sexy Heart ticked all the boxes for me; it is a steamy, heart warming, love story. I fell for Dash, he is swoon worthy, protective and altogether a great guy and Amber is a woman I could easily call my friend.

    One of the things I love the most about Melissa Foster's books is how she always manages to shine a light on important topics. In Sweet, Sexy Heart, the heroine has epilepsy. While reading, the author educates us about the illness, its symptoms, and the battles people who suffer from it and their loved ones have to fight. Amber was such a strong, sweet woman who build a big life in a small town. At first, she didn't want to give Dash the time of day because she had a specific image of him.

While reading, the author educates us about the illness, its symptoms, and the battles people who suffer from it and their loved ones have to fight. Amber was such a strong, sweet woman who build a big life in a small town. At first, she didn't want to give Dash the time of day because she had a specific image of him. That made her feel so realistic, Amber let her lead by the picture the media had drawn for her. Slowly she got to know the real Dash but made him work for her attention but once she was in, she was entirely in. Never before, a hero was swoony like Dash Pennington. The hero's we have met before don't hold a candle next to Dash Pennington. Even if I wanted to, I was unable to stop falling in love with him. Dash is perfect without being too much or fake. He is sweet, kind, considerate, attentive, supportive. He was open about his feelings and knew what he wanted in life and his relationships. Dash and Amber are perfect together. He didn't have judgments about Amber's condition. Dash educated himself and did his best to make everything as comfortable as possible. He made sure Amber lived her life to the fullest, but at a pace her health allowed. I loved the most about their relationship how they supported each other. Dash and Amber were different but had things in common that made their relationship so unique. They were also both very honest about their feelings. They communicated like adults, played no games, their relationship was real. Before Dash, Amber didn't have much sexual experience, but she came out of her shell what made up for some pretty hot sex scènes. Like in all Melissa Foster books, we get to catch up with old friends. Everyone is connected or knows each other in some way or form. Sweet, Sexy Heart is a perfect small-town romance with hilarious characters, where everyone knows and cares for everyone. Sweet, Sexy Heart is lighthearted and low on drama. There was some, but it all gets worked through very mature and fast. This story swept me off my feet. It made my heart race with emotion and swell with love. If you are looking for a perfect small-town romance that's low on drama but still touches some important topics, this is your book. You never go wrong with buying a book written by Melissa Foster. Her stories are everything you never knew you needed. I received an ARC from the author and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

    Sweet, Sext Heart is the latest sweet with heat romance by the incredible Melissa Foster. This is the eighth book in The Braden and Montgomery: Pleasant Hill/ Oak Falls series, and i had been DYING to read it! As an avid fan of Foster’s fun and flirty reads, I couldn’t wait to learn more about bookstore owner Amber Montgomery and retired football player turned author Dash Pennington, and just like I’d imagined, these two totally and utterly capture your heart. From the moment Dash spots the under Sweet, Sext Heart is the latest sweet with heat romance by the incredible Melissa Foster. This is the eighth book in The Braden and Montgomery: Pleasant Hill/ Oak Falls series, and i had been DYING to read it! As an avid fan of Foster’s fun and flirty reads, I couldn’t wait to learn more about bookstore owner Amber Montgomery and retired football player turned author Dash Pennington, and just like I’d imagined, these two totally and utterly capture your heart. From the moment Dash spots the understated but undeniably beautiful Amber at a party, he is unable to take his eyes off her. She is unlike the women he’s used to, and something about the way she smiles, flicks her hair and laughs at someone else’s jokes has him dying to know more. But when Dash and his friend introduce themselves, Amber is shy, panicked and less than smooth with her replies. Amber is the perfect heroine, she is sweet, sexy but also very down to earth. She suffers from seizures and has her sidekick and assist dog Reno by her side, and has opted to live a rather quiet and understated life. Therein lies the issue, for how can she possibly keep up with the lifestyle and popularity of one Dash Pennington? I loved this story as it felt like two unexpected people meeting each other and having that instant spark of a connection. I feel this is what Foster does best, and it completely and utterly hooks you as a reader, and you cannot help but adore the utterly charming and super romantic Dash. Like all of Foster’s books you can expect some sizzling sexy moments, extreme loyalty and two people desperate to be with one another. Amber’s seizures prove to be an obstacle, but Dash is ever the doting boyfriend and does anything and everything within his power to find a way that works. He will not give up on her easily! These book are truly what makes romance special, they truly capture the essence of all those first time feels and make you envious of the heroines and crave the heroes. A perfect story, to add to an already perfect collection. I’d recommend to those who want to get stuck into a reading series with lots of fun and flirtatious characters. All of Foster’s stories centre around unique situations and all her creations have quirky faults that humanise them to you, and Amber was the character I found myself relating too, and wanting so badly for things to go her way. Another epic love story!

We are soon caught up on all the relationships we may have momentarily forgotten, and back amongst friends again. Amber is the most lovely of people, and she has broadened her horizons since Piper designed her alarm necklace, and her Mum trained her much loved seizure-response companion dog, Reno. She is however at the limits of the freedoms she feels comfortable with, running her bookshop and living alone, but near others. So when Dash Pennington, loud, large celebrity footballer, turned author comes to town to release his new book, she is utterly overwhelmed. He is just so different to her, and clearly never without female attention. Yet, for Dash, the only woman he has ever been interested in turns out to be Amber. Of course, Melissa Foster weaves her magic and we get a wonderfully rich, passionate, and meaningful romance for both of them. I loved how family surrounds Amber, and both comfort her, and challenge her - not giving her the chance to ignore how she feels. Dash too, is impelled to consider what he really finds important and how he may need to temper his usual ways to make Amber his. Another fabulous story in which to get completely immersed. and completely switch off from the real world. Perfect!

Dash Pennington is ready for a break from the whirlwind his life has become. He is taking that break with a friend in a small town before the next step back into the pressure of a book tour when he sees a woman that will change his life – Amber Montgomery. Shy, quiet, controlled, easily flustered Amber owns a bookshop and will host Dash’s debut signing of the tour. Amber wants to maintain her status quo and Dash wants her to change things up to include him in her life. How it plays out is the story within this romance novel. What I liked: * Dash: brother, son, ex-football pro, motivational speaker, author, romantic, knows what he wants and wants Amber. * Amber: sister, daughter, bookstore owner, epileptic with grand mal seizures, warm, giving, controls her environment, smitten by Dash but also leery. * Reno: Amber’s service dog * The larger family and interactions among them – some were new to me and some I had seen and remembered from before * That the story stands alone without having to have read the previous books in the series * That it was educational providing information about epilepsy * That Amber did not fall into Dash’s arms immediately – he had to work for it * That Dash was willing to do “more” to secure Amber’s heart – and romanced her * That Amber was not as restrained as many thought she was * That Dash was not the playboy everyone assumed * That family was important to both of them * That there was give and take in the relationship and that they communicated, shared, and grew together * That both wanted the best for the other * That there was not a long of angst and drama * The small town feel of the story What I didn’t like: * Not a dislike…just a comment…it was a bit predictable BUT in a comfortable easy fun way Did I enjoy this book? Yes Would I read more by this author? Yes Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    I have been reading Melissa Foster romances for a long time and whenever I think she can’t make her books any better, she finds a way to surprise me and makes it better than the last. I have no idea how she does it, but her characters continually evolve and just get better making for steamier, hotter, more romantic, and more loving romances!

Amber is someone we have touched on a few times as several of her sisters have had their own romance journey, but it was so fun getting to know her. She is definitely someone I could see being friends with and wanting to spend time with! Dash is… wow. The biggest heart ever. He made everyone – myself included – fall in love with him instantly. You can’t help yourself! The electricity between Amber and Dash sizzles every time they are near each other and the things they go through and do for each other are… dreamy. Those are the things that slap you in the face and tell you that it’s real love. There were times in the story where you could feel the emotions. The hitch in the breath; the yearning to be close; the love; the heat radiating between the two of them. This romance story felt so much different, and I think that had to do with the characters. They were as unique as their love story. I could not put this book down and would love to see a future book about them. They definitely had a future, but one with unanswered questions. I would love to see how they work through those as the amazing couple that they are.

After all she does not need excitement in her life. He seems to be all about that life. What she does not consider is that he wants her and is willing to work for it. So, ignoring him will not work. He is about to pull out all the stops. I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

There is always something so real to her stories it is impossible not to come out on the other side in awe of the story.

Dash and Amber are beautiful in this book and both brought too much emotion through the pages, their attraction instantaneous, their love so powerful, their courage, unparalleled. Dash brings on his game plan to win Amber's heart and show her how it is possible to enjoy life outside her comfort zone avoiding being a "Monday Morning Quarterback" and ultimately scoring to win her love. I never get tired of reading these books and I would love to see them all brought to life on screen.

Now, here’s one of my favorite things about Melissa Foster books, she doesn’t shy away from main characters who don’t for our idea of “perfect”, and Amber Montgomery doesn’t even meet her own ideals. Suffering with seizures from an early age, Amber has made her world fairly small to manage her condition, but maybe it’s time to open some doors. Now Dash Pennington is all about knocking doors down, an MVP award winning wide receiver in the NFL, motivational speaker and an author, he just may knock down a wall or two. But here’s the thing, if you’re so used to keeping your world small, if you’re introverted to an extent I would think that this hot, yummy football player would be scary, however Foster manages to fit him into Amber’s world in such a way that you want to yell at Amber to stop being an idiot… and find out who he’s modeled after!

She loves books and owns a book store. She is all about her family but not finding love because it’s just not made for someone like her. She has epilepsy and people just don’t know how to deal with that and she rather not even try. Can Dash get her to reconsider or is his fast-paced crazy life too much for her calm planned life? I absolutely love this book. I honestly thought Amber was dealing with my life. I grew up with grand-mal seizures and have seen fear, embarrassment, and more in others' faces when I’ve had a seizure. It’s traumatizing and I honestly thought no man would want to or should have to deal with my medical issues. It’s tough.do I totally sympathize with her. Dash was a man I could only dream of meeting. I definitely recommend this book!

    Epilepsy is not all that easy to live with. Amber had her first episode when she was young and learned how to live with it. She was one of those quiet people that everyone tends to love-she was sweet and kind. She owned a bookstore which was the perfect business for her. She also had a dog who had been trained to push a button on a necklace one of her sisters made for her in case she had an attack.

When Dash, famed-athlete-turned-author, was going to do a massive book signing tour. Amber's bookstore was the first stop. She didn't accept at first--but finally relented. He spotted Amber at a shindig in town-and fell for her immediately--she ran quickly away (literally). To say he was persistent is putting it mildly. He slowly but surely won her over--then came the day of the book signing----- Everything went down hill from there--for a while anyway. But like I said Dash was nothing if not persistent! This novel will grab at your heartstrings and be sure to have some tissues nearby--you may need them for sad or for happy or for everything in between.

Amber’s service dog was such a love. I wanted to pet the dog and love on her! This is such a beautiful love story that touched my heart so much. I loved, loved the book and strongly encourage you to read it. I was given a copy and voluntarily wrote a review.
