‘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.’

Book #1 in the Snow Sister Series
“A beautiful story about love and self-growth and finding that balance to happiness. Powerfully written and riveting from beginning to end.”
National bestselling author, Jane Porter
“Steamy, passionate, and revealing. Perfect for readers of romances and stories about motivations and impulses that lead to emotional transitions.”
Diane Donovan, Midwest Book Review

I wasn’t sure what to expect when reading this book, but I absolutely adored it. That’s for sure. It was a bit saucier than I expected (we aren’t talking 50shades).

Danica is a therapist and is the sensible and reliable sister. Compared to her carefree, man loving sister. She is also part of a Big Sister Program where she takes out a teenager and spends time with them, talking to them and being a sister for them. This is a role very well suited for her and this made me respect her as a character.

Blake Carter is a player and a bad boy (sigh, my ultimate weakness in book boys). He was very hot and naughty.
He loses his best friend and work partner and is beyond heartbroken. So he seeks the local therapist in hope of getting things off his chest.

Danica is the therapist that Blake finds but can they hold off there attraction for one another? And will straight laced Danica risk her job?

I loved the this book so much, I loved the tension between the Blake and Danica and the will they won’t they.
I also loved that they weren’t the only ones hiding secrets. Danica’s sister has a secret as does Blake’s best friend, who won’t be able to hide them even though his dead.

This was one of those little gems that you pick up and find yourself glued to the pages until the early hours. It left me feeling warm and fuzzy.

‘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.’
