From the very start you’ll fall in love with our dear Dolly and find yourself begging for more from the Soul Sisters.  This new author will not fail to deliver.

Fostering Love is the first book in the Soul Sisters Series, which tells the story of four girls, friendship and their path to finding ‘the one’.

Being “soul sisters” is a way of life for Dalton, Amelia, Charlotte and Florence. 
Growing up together means they’ve shared all of life’s major highs and lows and managed to survive with a friendship so strong that real blood sisters would be jealous of it.
Dalton Frobisher has loved the same guy since she was a teenager.
It’s just unfortunate that he doesn’t love her back, or rather, can’t.
Growing up around the person you believe should be yours is hard, seeing him with other girls is harder but watching him leave is torture.  It’s a constant state of grief because he’s still in your life and you can’t have him.
Life is full of regrets and not telling him how she felt was the biggest regret she had... so far.  Dalton wasn’t going to miss that opportunity the next time it came around.
She just didn’t expect the fallout to be so... life changing.

My Review 
4.5 Just What I Needed Stars
Fostering Love is book #1 in the Soul Sisters Series by Victoria Johns; I was approached by Victoria herself and asked if I would be interested in reading and providing an honest review.

There are days when I wonder why I blog, I question if anyone reads what I say and then I think well do I care if anyone reads it lol.

Then I get approached by an author direct and asked if I would give them my opinion on their work and it’s such a lovely feeling, a real sense of pride that they want to know what I think.

So here’s my honest review of Fostering Love....

This is a classic romance story and at the end of the day who doesn’t love a good romance.

Jonas is a walking dirty dream, he’s aloof and brooding but he’s also sexy and macho and then he flips into alpha man mode and I literally went weak at the knees.

Dolly is adorable and quirky with a quick temper and a sex kitten side that all combine to make her instantly likeable. I love the fact that she wasn’t perfect, she was clumsy and at times awkward and a nice normal girl.

This small town feels like a real community and the whole book had a warm family vibe to it. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the author was a Gilmore Girls fan because this town totally made me think of Stars Hollow.

Dolly, Neely, Flo and Lottie were such a lovely group of friends, I loved the trouble they caused and the way they bantered between one another.

Talk about some serious sparks well Dolly and Jonas were lucky that they didn’t set things on fire. God when they had their ‘one night’ and he kicked up the alpha stuff to kinky mode I was squirming in my seat.

The sex was HOT and not in an extreme BDSM way but in the sexy and steamy way. I felt like a bit of a voyeur because the way the sex scenes were written was so intense and intimate that it felt real.

Leticia aka Tits was a complete nutter and I laughed out loud when Dolly nailed her in the supermarket!!! She needed to get her comeuppance sooner than she did.

Now at times I could have quite happily slapped Jonas round the head. He was pigheaded and an idiot at times but I still loved how he took control and protected Dolly.

God is there anything sexier than being claimed by a strong possessive man, when he said ‘mine’ I may have swooned just a tad.

I’m not going to include any spoilers so all I’m going to say is ohhhhhhh I love a good bit of edge of your seat drama and this book gives you that too lol!!

I really enjoyed this book; I’ve read a few hard, dark books lately so this book was a step back into the light for me and a much needed HEA.

As soon as I finished this book I was begging Victoria for a copy of book #2 Neely’s story.

I loved this lovely, kinky romance 4.5 stars
