After meeting Archer in Tempted by Love and seeing him shrouded in anger, bitterness and sadness, I knew his story would be intense. I slipped into his story with ease and had fun watching him got caught by love. I think Archer is the most stubborn hero Foster has crested. Someone like him would need a strong woman who would call him out on his crap. Indira (Indie) Oliver was that woman.

Indie plans to open a boutique on Silver Island. With her focus on establishing her cosmetic line and this new business venture, a relationship was not in the cards. So ending her casual hookups with Archer Steele shouldn’t be a problem. Especially knowing he has no intention of settling down. Well, you know what they say about good intentions.

These two could never seem to have enough of each other. Soon their hookups became so much more. I could only smile each time Indie said it would be the last time, as she was only deluding herself. 

Archer was an awesome individual. He may be a bit rough around the edges and lacked filter, but it added to his appeal. He cares deeply for his family and friends. It was this caring nature that opened the door for the pain and guilt he shouldered for many years. Not wanting to go through this pain again, he built walls around his heart. But Indie broke them down one by one.

It pained me to see this strong caring man believing he did not deserve to be loved. I delighted in his growth and the steps he took towards self forgiveness and healing. Indie helped him to that he was more than capable of handling a relationship. Who would have guessed he was such a romantic? The way he supported Indie and her dreams will warm the coldest of hearts.

Like all if Foster’s heroines, Indie was headstrong, smart, determined and independent. She knows what she wants and despite not having either support of her family; it didn’t stop her from pursuing her dream with passion. She may not have had her parents’ support, but between Archer, his family, and the residents of Silver Island, she had all she needed.

Indie and Archer’s romance was burning 🔥 hot. Whew, fanning self. These two sure know how to burn up the sheets. The story delivered several humorous moments. There was a scene near the end that had me cracking up.

Caught by Love was a delightful read from start to finish. I recommend Caught by Love to readers who love romantic stories surrounding love, loss, healing and forgiveness. Readers who enjoy an emotional and sexy romance featuring a strong heroine and a grumpy hero will want to add it to their reading list.
