Review: My True Love by Melissa Foster (The Steeles at Silver Island #2)
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
Melissa Foster has surpassed all my expectations with this second novel in her Steeles at Silver Island series! The eldest among this branch of the family, Jock Steele, has already gotten his happily-ever-after, and now, we've got the youngest of the brood. Twenty-five-year-old Jules Steele is her family's brightest light--the one who always sees the good, with enough love to share with her immediate family, her dearest friends, and the rest of the close-knit community of Silver Island. She has an abundance of proverbial happy dust to sprinkle around, but it could take more than that to entice her best friend's brother out of the deep, dark, lonely hole he prefers to stay in ever since he came back to Silver Island.
Thirty-three-year-old Grant Silver has lost his sense of purpose along with his leg while working with a civilian contractor after leaving the military. All he wants is to be left alone, but Jules is nothing if not persistent, and she's made it her mission to get Grant to fall in love with Silver Island all over again. Falling in love with each other, though, seems to be inevitable. But if Grant wants an honest-to-goodness shot at a future with Jules, he's going to have to mend familial fences and decide what he desires for the rest of his life.
One of the best when it comes to combining romance with family stories, it's Melissa Foster. Yes, there are a lot of recurring characters, but not so much that I feel overwhelmed by them all and feel lost. I'm enjoying my time on Silver Island, and the families that are there have already endeared themselves to me. Jules and Grant were such opposites, but I loved seeing how the youngest of one family nudged the oldest of another family to appreciate things from a different--and more positive perspective. Theirs was a sweet and steamy romance, and I was all for it! Five stars for My True Love.
