SYNOPSIS

Danica Snow has always been the smart, practical, and appropriate sister.   As a therapist, she prides herself on making reasonable, conservative choices, even if a bit boring, and as part of the Big Sister Program, she has little time for anything more in her life.
Blake Carter is a player. He never gets bored of conquering women, and with his sexy good looks and successful lifestyle, he has no trouble finding willing participants. When his friend and business partner dies in a tragic accident, he suddenly, desperately, wants to change his ways. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to stop doing what he does best.
When Blake walks into Danica’s office, the attraction between them is white hot, but Danica isn't the type to give into the heat and risk her career. Danica’s desire sets her on a path of self-discovery, where she begins to question every decision she’s ever made. Just this once, Danica wants to indulge in the pleasures of life she’s been so willingly ignoring, but with her Little Sister in turmoil and her biological sister’s promiscuousness weighing heavily on her heart, she isn’t sure it’s the right time to set her desires free.

SISTERS IN LOVE is a light, uplifting work of women's fiction and will resonate with readers who enjoy emotional journeys of the heart with strong heroines and sexy, lovable heroes. Readers of books by Jane Porter and Beth Kendrick will enjoy Danica and Blake's story.

REVIEW

I wasn't quite sure what I expected of this book, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was thoroughly enjoyed and read very quickly.

I like stories that centre around sister relationships I have a sister myself and because of this I found Danica and Kaylie very relatable. Danica Snow works as a therapist and is the smart, sensible one out of the two sisters; like me and Kaylie is the beautiful, creative one, like my sister! Danica is an excellent and very convincing therapist. At times I wanted her to use her own words of advice on herself. She is a serious workaholic and due to her work she second guesses everything. She has low self-esteem and I got frustrated with her for putting herself down and comparing herself to her sister all the time. Kaylie comes across as the strong, confident one, but there is more depth to her that she keeps hidden.

I can't not mention Blake! Blake is a player, and an idiot in my eyes and unsurprisingly Danica's. But she can't help feeling something for him. She tries to put him out of her mind, but Blake's circumstances change and he ends up in Danica's office with her as his therapist. There is a lot of tension between the two of them at times and Danica has to reign in her feelings, especially with Blake being a client. I think I would have trouble myself as Blake, despite being a player is hot! I liked how there was a deeper side to him and as I read along, I just wanted them to both realise that they should be together!

This was more than just a romance story. It is a story about the different relationships that family, friends and others have with one another, and it was a journey of self discovery for each and every character.

I will definitely be reading the next in the series Sisters in Bloom as I really want to learn more about Kaylie and see her side of the story. Sisters in Love is a fantastic start to this series!

8.5/10
