Fiercely independent Janie Jansen has always believed there were worse things in life than being blind, and she’s spent her life proving it. She’s moved away from her overprotective parents, built a life in New York City, and is one of the top technical editors in her company. That is, until an unfortunate accident turns her life upside down and she’s forced to give up the very independence she’s worked so hard to achieve.

Firefighter Boyd Hudson pushed past his tragic past and is weeks away from accomplishing his ultimate dream—being accepted into medical school. His intense focus on his goal while working three jobs has taken its toll. With a trail of failed relationships behind him, Boyd is painstakingly aware of his limitations and avoids girlfriends completely—a difficult task given his attraction to one of his co-workers.

When Boyd comes to Janie’s rescue, she’s forced to accept his help, and Janie discovers there’s more to the sexy-sounding office flirt than one-liners. Their connection deepens as Janie heals, but it turns out that Janie isn’t the only one who needs healing. Boyd’s painful past comes back to haunt him, threatening their relationship and forcing Boyd to reevaluate everything he knows about himself.

I think that, by this point, it is safe to say that I've read quite a bit of Melissa Foster's books. And with all of her heroes, none of them really came close to my favorite - Josh Braden. Sorry Josh, there's a new favorite in town. Boyd... He's nothing short of amazing. Not only is he protective of his family, he'll even put his life on hold for a woman he's wanted from afar. He was at Janie's side without hesitation. In fact, it is Boyd that inspired my word for Touched by Love. As with all of my reviews for Melissa's books, I like to pick a word that best described my feelings. I've reviewed so many of them that I can only gush over Melissa's writing style for so long. So, without further ado... My word for Touched by Love is treasure. As with all of Melissa's characters, Boyd treasures his family. After the loss of his parents, he knows how fleeting life can be and it haunts him. With Janie in his life now, he treasures every moment they spend together. As for Janie, she treasures her independence most of all. She takes pride her accomplishments and how hard she fought to not have to rely on anyone. As for me, I treasure and look forward to the time I spend reading Melissa's books. I always know that we'll get to revisit old friends, as well as meet new ones. It was fun to reconnect with the Remingtons again. Touched by Love was yet another winner from Melissa.
