Review: Caught by Love by Melissa Foster (The Steeles at Silver Island #3)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
"What?" she asked softly.
His feelings for her interlaced with his unresolved issues and came out as, "Everything, darlin'. Just everything."
Be Steele my beating heart! See what I did there? Okay, yeah, I'm being a wee bit cheesy, and Caught by Love is anything but! This is the third novel in Melissa Foster's The Steeles at Silver Island series, and it's got Archer Steele, twin to Jack (better known as Jock, whose book, Tempted by Love, is the first in the series), as its male main character. He's paired with someone who should be familiar to longtime readers of Foster's--Indira Oliver. He's a renowned vintner with the family owned Top of the Island Winery and Vineyards; she's an in-demand hair and make-up artist with her own line of skin care and cosmetics. The two have been not-so-stealthily hooking up, but with Indi finalizing plans for her boutique and moving to the Island, she decides the illicit trysts need to end. Archer, however, does not quite agree.
It really isn't fair that Melissa Foster has been writing book after book, and I go and fall for every single one back to back. I was initially worried Archer wouldn't click with me as much as the male MCs that came before him. Oh, how wrong I was! I. Am. SMITTEN! Gah! When those layers were peeled back, and his back story came to the forefront, there was no resisting the guy. And can I just say that I adore Indi? She was someone who was working to make her dreams become reality, and as much as she wanted her parents' support and approval, she realized she didn't need either one. Heck, if I was her, I wouldn't want to leave Silver Island either! This author has easily become one of my go-tos, and her winning combo of love, family, and home has me coming back for more each time. Five-plus stars for Caught by Love.
