Remington’s Series Book Two
By: Melissa Foster
Parello runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid,
where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program as a means to
repair their marred reputations. She loves the country, the people, and what
AIA stands for, but too many diva volunteers have turned her off to
press-seeking celebrities altogether and left her questioning the value of the
volunteer program. When she meets incredibly handsome and charming Sage, he
stirs emotions she hasn’t felt for ages, even though he represents the things
artist Sage Remington escapes his wealthy lifestyle in the Big Apple for a
two-week journey of self-discovery to figure out how a guy who has so much can
feel so empty. When he meets ultra-organized Kate, who lives her life the way
he’s always dreamed of living his, the attraction is too hot to ignore, but
Sage is there to figure out what’s missing in his life, not to find a woman.
and every late-night chat in the romantic jungle brings them closer together,
but Sage can barely think past stripping away Kate’s misconceptions about him.
Kate fights him every step of the way—even though she finds it hard to ignore
the strikingly handsome, generous-to-a-fault artist who wants to do nothing
more than right the wrongs of the world—and love her to the ends of the earth.

Sarah’s Review: Thanks you Melissa Foster and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to keep reading this amazing series. It’s no secret that I am addicted to this series and I enjoy emailing Melissa while I am reading each new book. It came to me while I was writing this review that the one series that I believe is comparable to the Love in Bloom series is Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series. When I find out there will be another book touring, I sign up and wait for the book! Sometimes I am patient, other times, not so much.
Sage Remington is an artist that wants to do something meaningful but doesn’t want the publicity to go with it. When he decides to take part in an activity to help in Belize, Sage discovers a way to do something meaningful and finds more than he is expecting during his trip.
Kate works for the organization that coordinates celebrities coming to Belize to do charity work. She hates every minute of the celebrities being there because they are not doing all that they can to bring awareness to the problems facing the community she has spent two years working with.
When Sage begins to let Kate know what he wants to do to help, she brushes him off because she doesn’t believe that he will follow through. When Kate and Sage become close, both their worlds are flipped upside down and leaves them both wanting more.
