This Is Love by Melissa Foster - ARC Review

Welcome to the little town of Harmony Pointe. 

It’s where some people have come to get away. For others, it’s a fresh new start. For a few, it’s perfect for healing broken hearts. And then there are those who just call it home. Only one thing is certain. In a town this small, true romance is always close by. Even when it’s least expected. Find out why everyone is falling in love with Harmony Pointe. Filled with charm, warmth, first kisses, and second chances, it’s New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster at her most irresistible

Actress Remi Divine is sick of bodyguards, sick of stalkers, and sick of feeling like she is always under a microscope. But this movie star isn’t helpless by any means. She’s got a rebellious streak, and she knows how to use it. First order of business: getting rid of the overbearing bodyguards who are sticking to her like glue.

Mason Swift has made protecting others his life, and when Remi ditches his two best men, he takes over and gives it everything he has. Having grown up in the foster-care system, and as a former special operative, he knows all the tricks. Nothing gets by him, especially not gorgeous, sneaky Remi.

He thinks she’s a diva. She thinks he’s arrogant. But when sparks turn to flames and their walls come down, their true hearts are revealed, and their connection is unstoppable. And when tragedy strikes, Remi realizes that being protected isn’t the worst thing in the world—but losing Mason just might be.

Remi has a stalker and an overprotective brother.  Mason is her new bodyguard.  Remi doesn't want a bodyguard and doesn't think there is a reason for her brother to be as worried about her safety as he is, so she is resistant to the idea of a bodyguard.

Remi sees Mason before they are officially introduced, she is attracted to him and wants to find him in the crowd...but before she can she discovers that he is the new man who has been hired to protect her.

Mason takes his job seriously.  And, falling in love with the woman he is supposed to protect is not something he is ok with, but he is not able to resist Remi the more he gets to know her.

I love books where the reason the characters are unable to be together feel real.  And, this is a real issue, it's a real problem. Falling in love with her, and still being in charge of protecting her, is a conflict and a complication.

I was engaged with this story and with the characters.  It makes it easy when you are fully able to believe the conflict.  This one worked for me as far as the conflict with the characters.  Although, there were times when I thought the romance built a little too quickly and that Mason moved past the issues he had with getting involved with Remi a little to fast for me to totally believe it.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
