Always Her Love (Melissa Foster) Book Reviews

LOVE SINGLE DAD ROMANCESLevi and Tara have known each other practically their whole lives. That’s what happens when you grow up in such a small town. Tara from a young age was always drawn to the kindhearted Levi - having a crush on him for as long as she can remember. Her dreams were crushed when her older sister announces she’s pregnant and it’s Levi’s baby. Fast forward 8 years later and Tara has become a godsend for Levi and his little girl Joey. Filling in for her sister who decided not to be a mother and leaving Joey with Levi full time while she travels the world - barely paying her daughter a second thought. Tara loves spending time with Joey and Levi and after all these years she's given up hope that Levi will ever see her as anything more than Joey's aunt. Things change though when Tara lets Levi know that she's going to be moving on. Buying a place of her own and needing to spend less time with Levi and Joey to concentrate on her life which includes dating. At first, Levi didn't know why this made him so jealous until his brother helped take the blinders off his eyes - letting him see just how much he cares for the fun-loving, beautiful woman in front of him. I love a good single dad romance especially when the child is as cute and sassy as Miss Joey is. I loved watching the realization hit Levi and him fighting for Tara - letting her know how much he needs her proving to her that he needs her as much as Joey does. I love this series and I think Levi and Tara are my favorite couple so far!.Score: 5/5

Absolutely loved this book!Levi is a single father to his beautiful and precocious daughter Joey. Since the beginning, Joey’s Aunt Tara has been a big part of her life. Tara’s sister Amelia is Joey’s biological mother. Talk about complications! Melissa Foster has once again brought amazing characters to life with her words. The journey of Levi and Tara over the years is much more complex than even the other knew. Levi showed strength caring for his infant daughter from the very beginning and making a life for them. Tara has given so much to them both with her time and attention. Levi’s eyes are finally opened to what he has in his life. Can Levi and Tara navigate the tangles to find each other? Another 5 star “must read” by Melissa Foster..Score: 5/5

So sweet!I just love Levi and Tara (and Joey). This book had me on a rollercoaster of emotions, and I just loved it! Such a great book!.Score: 5/5

Lots of feeling/emotionsFriends to Lovers - check Long Time Secret Love - check Older Sister's Baby Daddy - check Childhood Bullying - check I had a lot of feelings/emotions reading this story. I never had a sister and my mom never mentally bullied me, but I did go through bullying as a teenager. It is a hard thing to forget and get over. I still have issues from it nearly 40 years later. So I get Tara's hesitance to believe what Levi tells her about how beautiful and special and amazing she is. Her need to make sure Joey never feels the way she did as a child makes sense to me. I would feel the same way. Doing things, like gardening and cooking, that she never did with her mom is important for her to do with Joey. I love the relationship she has with Joey and how she never lets the little girl see her struggle. Tara makes choices she would want Joey to make in the same position. Levi, on the otherhand, had me wanting to slap him across the back of his head. It took him way too long to figure out he was in love with Tara. Then, when he figured it out, he played games trying to figure out if she felt the same way. I mean, really, just talk to her. My goodness, men are so dense sometimes. Although it wasn't the best way to reveal their relationship to their family, the way her mother reacted really made me mad. Instead of being happy, she couldn't get out of the house fast enough. Then she had no communication with her daughter for a week. That is not how a mother should treat any child, let alone her child. I was really glad to see that she took responsibility for her reaction and behavior and made a plan to get help and then she followed through. I felt it showed her willingness to grow. I loved the final reveal in the book. I thought it was such a perfect ending to the book. Here's hoping we see more of Levi, Tara and Joey, as well as all of the other Silver Island lovers..Score: 4/5

Always Her LoveA*R*C for honest review with no compensation Received from Valentine PR Always Her Love is book 4 in the Steeles at Silver Island by Melissa Foster. This is Levi and Tara’s story. Levi at a young age became a single dad to his daughter, Joey after a one night stand. Since that time he has put love on the back burner, no time for relationships as raising his daughter is his top priority. Between Tara and his family’s support he has maintained a loving home for Joey. Tara, a professional photographer has crushed on Levi since high school but that’s as far as it goes. She has been more of a mother to Joey than her biological one who happens to be Tara’s sister. What happens when Levi realizes that the reason he feels comfortable with no relationships is because Tara has shown him what true love is all about. Will he opens his heart and get Tara to finally admit that he has “Always Been Her Love”? Read on to see where it all ends….Score: 5/5

Super sexy read!Loved it!!! Keep them coming. Can’t wait until the next one come out!!.Score: 5/5

Steamy and sweetI really liked the story overall. Levi and Tara’s story is sweet, as usual, and couched in the beauty of the whole Melissa Foster world. I adored Levi’s daughter, Joey, who was modeled to be strong, smart but still sweet, the likes of which we need more in this world. In general, I absolutely love the characters of Melissa Foster’s world because they have a sweetness to them that take me away from this more and more difficult world. My biggest issue with this book is the initial back and forth with Levi trying to figure out if they should rock the boat and try to be more than friends. It felt a bit extended, though in some ways understandable. The backstory is that Joey is Tara’s sister’s daughter, born from a one night stand, and the relationship between sisters is shaky. Regardless, a wonderful steamy and sweet escape from the real world! Can’t wait for the next one!.Score: 4/5

Levi’s storyThis is a fabulous mix of subgenres. Single parent, long term secret crush, best friends big brother and a bit of a taboo. Tara is just a doll and deserves the world Levi is a typical clueless guy. Their journey to a HEA is a great one. The narrators are wonderful and make this story one very enjoyable to listen and enjoy!.Score: 5/5

Always Her LoveWhat should be a simple love story is anything but, with complications few couples have to deal with. This is Levi and Tara’s hopeful journey to happiness and everlasting love. Hot, single dad Levi Steele is raising his daughter Joey alone. Joey’s beautiful and sweet Aunt Tara has been a huge part of their lives every step of the way, but she’s off limits to Levi. Or is she? Is it too big a risk to get involved? There’s so much to unwrap here. A family bond they’ve forged over the years, but could it be more? Or could they lose everything by taking a chance? Family issues, jealousy, insecurities and plain cruelty all surface. Emotional overload at times and yet, Melissa Foster weaves a story that makes you invest yourself in their lives, rooting for them and pleading with them to see what’s so obvious. Passion, love, sacrifices and risks all intertwine to make a can’t put down read! The highs are high and the lows are heartbreaking, secrets revealed and painful realizations exposed. These can destroy you or make you stronger. Are Levi and Tara up for the task? A romance worthy of rereading more than a few times!.Score: 5/5

Another Incredible Melissa FosterI absolutely loved Always Her Love by Melissa Foster; it is an incredible friends-to-lovers love story. It is the fourth book in her The Steeles at Silver Island series. Melissa Foster continues to prove that she is an amazing storyteller. I love that Melissa Foster continues to write the books that I love to read. I could not put Always Her Love down and I loved every moment on every page. Who does not love hot sexy men, strong females, loving families, and friends, who always support one another? I love how Melissa Foster somehow manages to find the "perfect" heroine, who is a strong woman on her own, to balance out her men. I really enjoy how the book is told from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. Always Her Love is filled with heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. I love the lighter moments where I find myself smiling and laughing out loud. My favorite moments are the ones that pull at my heartstrings that cause me to sigh, as I read the heartbreaking moments. Always Her Love is filled with such moments, and with so much emotion. It is filled with all those things that we have come to love and expect in a love story, Melissa Foster did not disappoint, especially with the poignant and bittersweet moments that filled this page turner. My favorite part is how she incorporates the picture on the cover into the love story. Always Her Love is the story of Levi Steele, owner for a Husbands for Hire franchise in Harborside and single father to eight-year-old, Joey, and his daughter’s aunt, Tara Osten, a photographer on Silver Island. Levi and Tara have known each other since they were younger. Tara has been attracted to Levi and has had a crush on him since she was a child but has never acted on her attraction to him because her sister Amelia is Joey’s mother. She made a resolution to move on from her affection for Levi and her unrequited love. Every year Tara spends Joey’s two-week spring break with her in Harborside and has decided that this will be the last time that she does it. Archer suggested that Levi make a move on Tara since he observed that Tara always flirtatiously smiling at Levi. This messes with Levi’s mind and he does not know what to do. Tara is Joey’s aunt, and he does not want to ruin that relationship or his own friendship with Tara. As Tara and Levi spend time together over Joey’s spring break, things change between them, and they begin a romantic relationship. Love dirty talking Levi, it is my favorite part of the story. When spring break is over, they decide to try the long-distance relationship when Tara returns to Silver Island. I love the chemistry between Tara and Levi. I love that Tara shares secrets and insecurities with Levi about her mother, the difficulties of her childhood, and growing up with Amelia that she has not shared with anyone before. I loved that Always Her Love is a more than just a romance, there are dilemmas that both Tara and Levi are facing that need to be resolved. I love how the storylines get so beautifully resolved. I love the changes that both Levi and Tara make in their lives so that they can have a life with one another and the changes that Tara makes in her life and in her relationship with her mother. I love Levi’s proposal, and the significance of the location of the proposal and that Joey was included in the proposal. I love Levi and Tara’s love story and the ending of their perfect love story. One of my favorite parts is everything that Levi does to help make Tara’s dreams come true. I love all the little things that Levi does for Tara to prove his love. Melissa Foster truly delivered a book that was so worthy of Levi. Always Her Love is filled with poignant and bittersweet moments as well as plot twists. I love the characters and the family dynamic in Always Her Love the characters feel like family and friends. I love that it felt like a family reunion and loved catching up with the other Steele siblings. I enjoyed all the interactions between the Steele siblings and Levi’s interactions with his siblings, it feels like real family love and makes me laugh at their teasing and I love all their pranks. I loved all the characters in Always Her Love, and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Who does not love family and friends that always have each other’s backs? I thoroughly enjoyed Always Her Love. Highly recommend this incredible love story and am so looking forward to reading the other books in the series..Score: 5/5

A beautifully written, passionate love story!!The latest swoon worthy romance by Melissa Foster gives us sweet and tender moments and hot and sexy nights for Levi and Tara. Every time they are together brings them closer and Levi couldn’t believe he hadn’t seen Tara as the love of his life until now. All it took was one slow dance and he knew that she needed to be in his life forever. His house was full of pictures from their many adventures, going all the way back to when his daughter Joey was a baby. Their bright smiling faces brighten up his lonely days when Tara was back home on Silver Island. Each time he says goodbye to her at the ferry, his heart aches and he longs for her return. Levi and Tara were always meant to be together. He had protected her even as a youngster, when she had a secret crush on him. Levi made her feel safe, especially when she felt sad and lonely, and she wouldn’t have survived her teenage years without his friendship. Tara thought it was too good to be true that Levi may have feelings for her because that would be a dream come true. When they are together, happiness surrounds them and life is good. Tara was afraid to believe that this could be her life, the three of them blissfully happy forever. Levi was determined to win Tara’s heart and nothing would stand in his way. Not her family, distance or being too busy to be together. Levi was addicted to Tara and she was his destiny, his soulmate and his reason for being..Score: 5/5

I Know You Can Do ItI’m always excited to be back on Silver Island and for this book we get to travel to both Silver Island and Harborside and see a lot of our favorite characters especially those we haven’t seen from Harborside in a while. There’s always been underlying chemistry between Levi and Tara but who knew that when these two took a chance that it would be a three alarm fire and then some. I love that these two have such a great friendship to build a possible relationship on but there’s also Joey to consider and neither Levi nor Tara want to hurt her if something doesn’t work out. It was definitely hard hearing about how Tara was treated by not only Amelia (going forward as ‘she who will not be named’) but also her mother. I did appreciate the ladies cheering Tara on in her quest, if you will, to be with Levi and it’s always great when Joey gets the support, she more than deserves, from not only her family in Harborside but those on Silver Island as well. She is an amazing young lady. Wonderful story from beginning to end and I’m glad ‘she who will not be named’ got called out and put in her place and I especially liked the surprise that Levi put together with Charmaine for Tara, no one deserves that more than Tara. My favorite line from this story is - no matter how far apart we are, we’re always close at heart. Great story! I listened to this as an audiobook narrated by Aidan Snow and Ava Erickson. I like the duo narration and how they each did their specific chapter however I especially liked when Aidan did the male voices and thought he did a great job with Levi and Ava did the female voices..Score: 5/5

Simmer to a BoilWhat a fresh, emotional story about Levi Steele, who has been a devoted, single father, to Joey, since he was nineteen. Amelia, Joey’s mother, did not want to be a mother, but instead she wanted to travel the world, rarely appearing in their lives. Joey’s, Aunt Tara & her mother’s sister, was always there to help and protect the little girl. The “simmer” between Levi and Tara had been building for years and what an explosive journey the two have with sassy little Joey, family connections and their friends. Silver Island and Harborside are put on high alert to the emotional ride headed for them plus accepting their past experiences, family pranking, and embracing their amazing future, makes the book special for your heart! Fantastic story, once again, Melissa!!!!.Score: 5/5

He was five years older and the father to her sisters daughter. Her sister wanted nothing to do with her daughter, so Joey was raised be Levi only and TaraJoey’s favorite Aunt. They were really meant to be together, love was right in front of him the entire time, it just took him a while to see it..Score: 5/5

Love Joey, Levi & TaraAbsolutely love Levi and Tara’s story. Joey is just too sweet for words. Amelia (Joey’s birth mom) - Grrr, self centred person who is horribly mean spirited because she’s jealous. Levi & Tara - Levi is an incredibly hot single dad who’s whole world centres on his daughter, Tara is Joey’s aunt who’s been in love with Levi since before she understood what it meant. 2 week spring break changes everything for them and they give their love a chance to Bloom. Long distance relationships are hard but they do what they have to do to make it work till they figure everything else out. Throw in family angst and drama and you’ve got all the feels..Score: 5/5

4.5stars-emotional, heart break, seductive4.5 stars- ALWAYS HER LOVE is the fourth instalment in Melissa Foster’s contemporary, adult STEELES AT SILVER ISLAND erotic,romance series-one of many spin offs from the author’s LOVE IN BLOOM series. This is twenty-nine year old, single father/ house renovator Levi Steele, and twenty-four year old, professional photographer Tara Osten’s story line. ALWAYS HER LOVE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives (Tara and Levi) ALWAYS HER LOVE follows the friends to lovers relationship between twenty-nine year old, single father/ house renovator Levi Steele, and twenty-four year old, professional photographer Tara Osten. Approximately ten years earlier, in the wake of a one-night stand, Levi discovered he was going to be a father, and the mother wanted nothing to do with raising a child. Fast forward to present day, Levi’s daughter Joey is now eight years old, and the proverbial apple of his eye but Levi and Joey have found themselves in a precarious situation having fallen in love with Joey’s aunt Tara, the younger sister of Levi’s one-night stand. Battling between head and heart, Levi struggles to keep his distance from the woman with whom he is falling in love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Levi and Tara, and the potential fall-out as the past returns looking for a second chance. The relationship between Tara and Levi is a friend to lovers. Tara has been in love with Levi for as long as she can remember but her six year age difference left Tara the target of taunts and ridicule but her older sibling and mother, something very few knew anything about. Struggling with ongoing issues of low self-esteem, Tara believes she isn’t good enough when rejection comes at the hands of the man that she loves. Levi Steele doesn’t do relationships, making his eight year old daughter his main priority but his attraction to Tara can no longer be denied, an attraction everyone sees, but the man in the middle. The $ex scenes are erotic and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. As per Melissa Foster’s style, there is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Levi and Tara’s friends and family, and many characters from the author’s other interconnected series, story lines and spin off. Levi’s sister Leni’s story line is next in WILD ISLAND LOVE. ALWAYS HER LOVE is a story of family, friendships, relationships and unrequited love; a tale of emotional abuse and heart break; strength and acceptance. The premise is dramatic, engaging and entertaining; the romance is seductive and edgy; the characters are dynamic and determined..Score: 5/5
