Stroke of Love is the eleventh book in the Love in Bloom series and the second book in The Remingtons subseries by Melissa Foster. You do not need to read these books as a series, they can each stand well on their own. Kate Parello runs a volunteer program in Belize for Artists for International Aid, where she deals with self-centered artists who use the program for good PR. 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. Laid-back 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. The pair find a closeness and attraction they cannot deny, but can they find their way to a life together?
Stroke of Love is a great read that lost a bit of momentum and oomph towards the end, but then redeemed itself a bit. Still not a perfect read, but I am definitely hooked! I am now a Foster fan and am making my way through the backlist of her books. I am really looking forward to the next book in the Remington arch.
