Summary: Olympic gold medalist skiers Jayla Stone and Rush Remington have been best friends for years. They’ve seen each other at their best and worst and have kept each other’s secrets without fail. Only there’s one secret Rush has kept close to his chest. After months of introspection, Rush realizes he’s been filling his bed but not tending to his heart. He’s changed his womanizing ways, and the only woman who can fill his heart has been right by his side all this time.
Years of intimate conversations and the sharing of hopes and dreams collide when Rush reveals his secret, and one toe-curling kiss changes everything between Rush and Jayla. They’re no match for the passion that kiss ignites, or the pull of true love. But being Rush’s best friend means knowing all about his revolving bedroom door—and Jayla has a secret of her own that could jeopardize her career and her relationship with Rush. Even their love may not be enough to overcome Rush’s past or secure Jayla’s future.
Flirty Review: FOUR LIP BITES
Foster knows how to tell a compelling story and she has done it well over and over again. She's not breaking the mold but working with what best suits her readers is where she excels. I like that and I find that this approach lends the readers a certain level of dependability in Foster's work. They know what to expect from her work and enjoy it when they are delivered a good book.
There are always a couple of things I always find not necessarily wrong but needs worked on with every book I read. Foster has the romance formula down pat but I would have loved to see more backstory with Rush and his womanizing ways. In Slope of Love we are told what kind of ladies man Rush is but we don't really see it for ourselves which doesn't translate well. We want to relate to Jayla's apprehension of falling so quickly into a relationship with Rush and her trust issues. But we're not really shown Rush's behavior from the past. I think more focus on Rush's past would have rounded out Jayla's reactions a little better.
The editing was great again and I loved Foster's writing style. She included an except for the next Remingtons book featuring Kurt's story, Read, Write, Love. I can't wait to read it and hope I can get an ARC of that one *hint hint*
