**
Handsome, wealthy resort owner Treat Braden is used to getting what he wants. When Max Armstrong walked into his life six months earlier, he saw right through the efficient and capable façade she wore like a shield, to the sweet, sensual woman who lay beneath. She sparked an unfamiliar desire in him for more than a one-night stand, leaving his heart reeling and his blood boiling. But one mistake caused her to turn away, and now, after six months of longing for the one woman he cannot have, he's going home to try to forget her all together.

Max Armstrong has a successful career, a comfortable lifestyle, and she's never needed a man to help her find her way--until Treat Braden caught her attention at a wedding in Nassau, causing a surge of emotions too reminiscent of the painful past she'd spent years trying to forget. Max will do anything to avoid reliving that pain--including forgoing her toe-curling, heart-pounding desire for Treat.

When a chance encounter turns into a night of intense passion, Treat realizes that the mistake he made six months earlier may cause him to lose Max completely. He will do everything within his power to win her heart forever--and Max is forced to face her hurtful past head on for the man she cannot help but love.
.

Max Armstrong is probably my favorite character from Melissa Foster's LOVE IN BLOOM series of romance novels. She's a type-A organizing maniac whose frenetic self-sufficiency masks a true vulnerability. In LOVE AT HEART, Max comes face to face with her biggest nightmare--a man who makes her want to curl up in his arms and be taken care of.

Max met Treat Braden in SISTERS IN WHITE when she organized her boss' double wedding. Treat, a cousin to the other groom, owns the resort where the event took place. The instant attraction between Max and Treat short circuited due to a misunderstanding, and both of them have spent the past six months trying to forget the other. But Treat's family is from Colorado, not far from where Max lives and works, so the inevitable happens.

On one hand, I enjoyed the tension created as Max and Treat bounce between searching each other out and running away. Both characters have a rich back story, which makes their actions believable most of the time. The POV alternates between Treat and Max. Overall this works fine. Treat is a big (BIG) alpha-male. I love that Foster peels away layers of responsibility and grief suffocating him and gets to the human being inside. At times, though, he's gets a little too Mr. Sensitive. The words that come out of his mouth don't quite convince, rather it's the author speaking her vision of a sensitive man. Max, too, loses her edge at times, but then we learn about the truly horrific event underlying her fear and her over-the-top emotional swings snap right into place.

I did question the number of missed or ignored cell phone calls. I noticed this back in SISTERS IN BLOOM, and it irritated me then as well. It's not just the actual ignoring/missing of the calls.

Lovers at Heart features the eldest son Treat Braden and Max Armstrong, who we first meet in Sisters in White (book 3 of Love in Bloom: Snow Sisters), but they didn't exactly part on the best of terms but despite this Treat can't seem to get her out of his mind.

When they bump into each other at the local film festival in Treat's home town it's clear to see that the initial attraction is still there for the both of them but there are a lot of hurdles to overcome if they are going to be able to trust one another and make a relationship work.

I really enjoyed getting to know both Treat and Max who both have issues that have affected their previous relationships. Treat had to take on a lot of responsibility for his younger siblings when his mother died whilst he was young, whereas Max's abusive past has a lot to account for why she doesn't let anyone get close to her.

I really like the fact that this series of books are based around families and enjoyed getting to know a little bit about the rest of the Braden family who we'll be meeting in the upcoming books in the series which I cannot wait to read.

This was an enjoyable love story with a bit of steam added for those that like to get a little hot under the collar.

Did not expect this with so many good reviews. Personally, I didn't even find it escapism, just mushy drivel. Pathetic story line.
