Gage Ryder and Sally Tuft have been a part of several books within the Love In Bloom series so we’ve been building up to finally getting their story. Sally lost her husband several years ago in a skiing accident (book one, Sisters in Love) and was a single mom. Gage met her through the youth center and although the attraction was immediate, they became best friends and kept it to that level as Sally adjusted and Rusty, Sally’s son, grew up.
We are now in book forty one, so that was quite a few years ago and Rusty was now twenty and in college. Part of me was dreading this book because they should have found their forever love together long before now and any conflict would seem over kill and unrealistic. In the end, it was mostly sweet, with a few funny moments, the main conflict being how to tell Rusty and how will he respond. However, Foster threw in a few twists in the latter half of the book to make it even more interesting.
Aside from the hot sex scenes, the first half of the book was Sally waffling and whining about telling Rusty, and that part was annoying. I personally thought after five years of deep friendship and Gage already like a father to him, Rusty could care less. That was the logical real life scenario, but you’ll have to read it to see which direction Foster chose. For a side note, I’d love to see Rusty eventually get his own story too. Hint hint....
Typical for Foster’s style, Swept Into Love was well written and well developed with depth and dimension. Although Gage and Sally have been friends for years, it was sweet to see some of their firsts. Foster chose to write a full length novel, however, she could have accomplished this story easily in a novella. Since we’ve watched them develop over the years, it moved a little slow for my liking in the beginning. With that said, I did enjoy the last third of the book tremendously.
Another bright spot was catching up with the originals in the series and seeing so much of Danica, Max and Kaylie as well as seeing up close the family progression. Add in the entire Ryder family at Christmas and it was the perfect lead in for a legacy spinoff when the time is right.
Foster also took the opportunity to introduce characters for a new series, the Montgomery’s. I was intrigued and I’m looking forward to watching them develop further and see where Foster takes us. They definitely are an entertaining bunch! Grace Montgomery is first in Embracing Her Heart
"You and I are bigger than rational thoughts of what we should or shouldn't be. We always have been." Gage Ryder
It's so simple yet says so much about Gage and Sally.
I beg you to please take the time to one click this book and read it. You need Swept into Love I your life so much more than you need that expensive cup of coffe. You will enjoy every second of it the first, second and even the 10th time you read it.
Gage is a fiercely loyal, protective, smart, sexy, strong man and he's definitely a perfect book boyfriend. He has been in love with Sally for years. They're best friends, co-workers, their attraction has been burning hot since they met but Gage knows he has to be patient with Sally, after losing her husband she dedicated herself to her son and hasn't allow herself to fully move on, however now Rusty has left for college and they have to take a trip to open a new youth center, so Gage is incredibly hopeful that they can give in to their feelings. Will Sally be able to resist their burning red hot attraction?
Sally is a loving, protective mother who has been dodging her feelings for Gage for years. Gage is her son's confident and her best friend and she's terrified of what might happen if they get involved. She's also a sexy, beautiful, independent, sassy woman who knows exactly what who she wants, however she's fighting her feelings even though it has been years since her husband died and Gage is the epitome of a walking temptation. Will she risk their friendship and her son's close relationship with Gage to take a chance on love?
If you love romance, any type of romance, I highly recommend Swept into Love: a brilliantly written, amazing, swoony, emotional, sweet, addictive, hot best-friends-to-lovers story that can be read as a standalone. Unquestionably, a must read and a 2017 top favorite.

Melissa Foster has delivered another beautiful story. There were often hints early on about Sally and Gage becoming more but it’s all about the timing and now was definitely their time.
After being away for the week Sally and Gage come back married, the way it happened couldn’t have been better, it’s been five years in the making. Whilst they’ve enjoyed their alone time together they are now back home and back to reality.
Sally and Gage decide to keep their marriage on the down low for now the main reason for that is Rusty, after loosing his father, Gage has always been there for both him and Sally but Sally is worried what Rusty will think about them being married.
Well of course it’s not long before their cover is blown but Rusty still doesn’t know yet. You are so caught up with how Rusty might react to his mum and Gage thinking that is going to be the main concern, you are not prepared for what happens next.
Rusty has everyone worried for a while add to that the all important reveal and it doesn’t get off to a good start but the situation soon calms down.
There are some very touching and emotional moments throughout I think it’s a combination of knowing the whole situation and history surrounding Sally, Dave, Rusty and Gage. It was very sad when Sally lost her first husband it impacted on all those concerned so it’s even more reason now to be happy for Sally. Gage and Rusty they got there in the end...what a beautiful epilogue..!
Sally Tuft has been a widow/single parent for the last 5yrs, raising Rusty hasn’t been the easiest job. But it’s one that she has loved and continues to do. Waking up in Vegas, with the man she has always wanted wasn’t in her plans but things do happen for a reason.
Worries of how Rusty will react play on both their minds but if you’ve finally got something or someone you have always wanted then here is no option but to make it work.
I don’t know about anyone else who has read all of these books but it feels like it’s been a life time of waiting for Gage & Sally to get together! I have loved this book…… now where do I get my own stripping Ryder????
Careful Sally who is a devoted mother, widow and youth centre administrator, has never known a life beyond childhood and motherhood. So when she is swept up in a crazy night in Vegas she is forced to give in to her heart's desire and finally allow herself to fall in love with Gage.
Gage Ryder is loyal and has been the strength, support and confidant for Sally and her son Rusty, and has been hopelessly smitten with Sally for five whole years. So when they ended up tied to one another he is adamant and determined to not let the opportunity slip through his fingers.
This story is sweet, romantic sexy but also endearing, the struggles that are portrayed between the characters are relatable and written so beautifully. I was so drawn and hooked to their story and their bond felt real and unique. I love how cautious Sally is and how much her character develops throughout the story, and Gage is just truly adorable, funny and very up front.
I am now eagerly anticipating a story involving Rusty or a novella of Gage and Sally because I truly adore these characters and didn't want to put the book down. I would fully recommend to all romance readers and someone who likes reading books that are relatable and well written.
Gage and Sally met 5 months after a ski accident claimed the life of her husband, leaving her to raise their son alone. Through the years, Gage and Sally work and relax together, never giving in to the mutual attraction they have for each other. To others they look like a couple, going to family events together, work socials together and Gage grows to become a confidant for Sally's son Rusty.
Five years on and one night, during a conference in Las Vegas, things take a dramatic turn and they must decided if the outcome is worth changing their relationship for.
I absolutely adored this book and read it in one sitting! I could not put it down. It was well worth the tiredness the following day from reading through the night. Enjoy!
Gage and Sally have been tutoring around their feelings for so long that when they finally admitted to them it wasn't surprising they went in with both feet and so fast.
When I went to bed, I didn't want to put the book down, when I went to work I didn't want to put it down, I was hooked and would have read it in one sitting otherwise.
I'm sad the Ryder series has come to an end but I know it won't be the last we here from them and I cannot wait for all the incredible books coming my way.
Amazing, incredible book and definitely my favourite of the Ryder series.
Gage stole my heart and I would love to be his "bird"
Melissa thank you for another amazing story.
