“There eyes connected with the heat of summer lightning.”If there was ever a time that we needed a book to lift our spirits and make us smile, it is right now. Melissa Foster’s latest book “Searching For Love” is a romantic, emotional, and beautifully written second chance love story. Zev and Carly are a special couple whose love story is tender, sweet and deeply personal. Their love for each other is timeless and made me laugh, cry and believe that real love will always find a way to bring people together. When tragedy struck, Zev closed himself off from his family and friends and left town because he thought that traveling, exploring and thrill-seeking would rid his mind of the guilt that surrounded him. However, Carly was always on his mind and in his heart and he would never be the same without her. He cherished her and she was far more precious than anything he had ever found in his travels. Carly was his “most valuable treasure and [his] first and only love.” Carly was heartbroken when Zev left and felt that nothing would ever be the same. She shared everything with Zev and he was her other half and soulmate. She always wondered why Zev never reached out to her, called her or sent a postcard. Didn’t their love mean anything to him? When she saw him again, the past came rushing back like a stream after a storm. He was her best friend and the one person she could share her love of adventure with. But that was all in the past, wasn’t it? Why was Zev back in her life now, and what did it mean? Does Carly have it in her heart to forgive Zev or will she hide behind her fears and watch him sail away again?.Score: 5/5
One of the best!Searching for Love will break your heart with the history of the two main characters Zev Braden and Carly Dylan. But as they begin to repair their relationship I could only cheer them on. This beautifully written story by Melissa Foster will hit all your buttons. It is romantic, healing, funny, sad and uplifting. I also loved how the characters from other books were woven throughout the book. It also must have taken a good bit of research to show the “treasure hunter” process. A true 5 star read..Score: 5/5
Wonderful!Searching for Love is a wonderful second chance romance and a great addition to this series. Zev and Carly have history, they planned their future together until tragedy hit. Now years later fate brings them face to face and they are absolutely wonderful together. Brian Panillo and Virginia Rose did an excellent job in the audio version of Searching for Love. They brought all of the characters to life and you fall deeper into the story..Score: 5/5
Treasure trove of love storiesAfter reading this book, I've decided I need a treasure hunter in my life. Even if only for a short time. The adventure, the love, the fun, the humor. Not only did we have Zev and Carly's story, but we had glimpses in to Ford and Randi's story. And Cutter and Quinn. This story has piqued my interest in these new stories. And Dare has a lot of moves and should have a story of his own soon. And now I'm curious about Luis and Aunt Marie. Goodness, Ms Foster has opened a treasure trove of love stories (ha ha pun intended)..Score: 4/5
Good bookThis was a good second chance romance as Zev and Carly find love with each other again. The pair have suffered loss of a friend as well as guilt of actions leading up to the grief that they suffered as teens. They then reunited a few years later where they had a one night stand but Carly felt that she needed to protect herself and left before they could attempt to resolve anything with their past. The pair are then reunited a second time where they find love with each other and resolve their feelings and issues from the past. The characters are well written with chemistry that is off the charts. I enjoyed the family orientation that the characters have as well as the return of characters from previous books and series. The story moved along well and kept me interested throughout as the story flowed. Overall this was a good book that I would recommend to others..Score: 4/5

4.25 stars-intoxicating4.25 stars--SEARCHING FOR LOVE is the sixth instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult THE BRADENS AND MONTGOMERYS: PLEASANT HILL-OAK FALLS erotic, romance series. This is treasure hunter/diver Zev Braden, and chocolate shop owner Carly Dylan’s story line. SEARCHING FOR LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines and series is revealed where necessary. THE BRADENS AND MONTGOMERY: Pleasant Hill-Oak Falls series is a spin off from several of the author’s other ongoing series. Told from dual third person perspectives (Zev and Carly) SEARCHING FOR LOVE is a second chance romance focusing on treasure hunter/diver Zev Braden, and chocolate shop owner Carly Dylan. Childhood best friends Zev and Carly’s world fell apart approximately ten years earlier when their best friend Tory Raznick was killed leaving Zev struggling with guilt, and Carly alone to battle the heart break when Zev walked away. Fast forward to present day wherein Zev’s brother’s Beau wedding to Charlotte would reunite our story line couple but not before the pain of loss would remind Zev and Carly that love is stronger the second time around. What ensues is the rekindling romance and relationship between Zev and Carly, and the potential fall-out as Zev’s business has literally stuck gold, and Zev must get back to his treasure hunting ways. Carly Dylan’s lost two people the day her best friend Tory died: Tory to a car accident, and Zev to his personal guilt and grief but Carly was caught unaware of Zev’s need to run, a need that left our heroine heart broken and barely able to survive. Zev Braden struggles with issues of guilt in the aftermath of Tory’s death, a death that was not his fault but a death he continues to blame on himself. Running from Carly was the biggest mistake of his life, a mistake of which he needs to make amends in the face of his continuing love for the woman who still holds his heart. The relationship between Zev and Carly is one of second chances; a rekindling romance that must face another obstacle as Zev’s deep sea adventures has struck gold, adventures of which Carly had always wanted to be a part. Having spent most of their youth and teenaged years together skydiving, cliff diving, parasailing and deep sea diving, Carly and Zev looked forward to a life together until Zev ran without looking back. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. There is a very large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters, many of whom we have met in previous stories and related series including Carly’s co-workers Birdie and Quinn; Zev’s parents and his siblings Beau, Nick, Graham, and Jillian; cowboy and Charlotte’s friend Cutter Long. Thank goodness a family tree is supplied at the beginning of the story ;) SEARCHING FOR LOVE is a story of second chances; of grief and healing; of family, friendships, relationships and love. The premise is spicy, imaginative yet heart breaking; the romance is tender, seductive and provocative; the characters are spirited, energetic, and animated but it is the wounded hearts of Zev and Carly that cry for healing and love. SEARCHING FOR LOVE is another intoxicating look at the people who live and work in Pleasant Hill-Oak Falls..Score: 4/5

Ticked all my boxes4.5 Stars for Searching for Love (The Bradens & Montgomery’s; Pleasant Hill- Oak Falls, #6) This is a series that has me feeling like I’m home, visiting family and friends and Zev Braden and Carly Dyla’s was everything I have come to expect from Ms Foster and my group of friends. It’s an entertaining story that captivated me from the first page to the last line. Zev and Carly have a history, they were meant to be together and they had dreams to travel the world treasure hunting but fate had other ideas and Zev left town to follow the dream and he is only back because of family commitments, has fate brought this couple together again, can Zev convince Carly to give him another chance to prove the love they once shared it still alive ... A heartfelt, emotional story that ticked all my boxes, I swooned, I sighed and I smiled a lot as Zev and Carly reconnect, I loved the story and the characters and once again Ms Foster took me home..Score: 5/5
Loved itThis is Zev Braden and Carly Dyla’s story and what an entertaining story it was. I really enjoy Melissa Foster’s style of writing. Her characters are strong and the stories well written and you cannot help but be drawn in to the story that she weaves. Zev and Carly have a history, in fact their families always expected them to marry until tragedy tore them apart. When fate brings them face to face again, will they take a chance and follow the path that they were on for so many years ago? Can Zev convince Carly to take another chance on him and the love they once shared? Searching For You ticked the boxes for me. It is a heart warming,steamy, emotional second chance at love story. Zev is swoon worthy, protective and altogether a great guy. I loved Zev and Carly and found them easy to relate to as I did the secondary characters..Score: 5/5
