Kate 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 she despises.

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.

Every look, 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.

Thank you to Shaz for letting me join in on this tour. As you probably know I love the Love in Bloom series by Mellisa. The Braden’s stole my heart and slowly but surely The Remingtons are finding there way in too.

Sage is so passionate about everything he does. I loved how caring he was. He was constantly thinking about other people and how his actions would affect others. He clearly genuinely wanted to make a difference.

Kate such a good person. She gave up so much of her time to help others and she really cares about the people in the village.

I loved the way Sage and Kate were both thinking the same thing but were too scared to tell each other, it was really sweet. Melissa has a way of making you love all her characters and want everything to work out for them.

Luce was a really good friend to Kate and I think she really helped her to see that Sage wasn’t your average celebrity.

Javier was the sweetest little boy. I loved him.

Caleb was quite cute in his own little way I hope we hear more about him later on.

It was great to catch up with the rest of the family I’m really looking forward to reading Siena’s book, Flames of Love next.
