I honestly liked this book, didn’t love it.. but I did enjoy it.. I would most definitely recommend this one to a friend!
Today is the day – the day that the man I love marries someone else. I don’t deserve pity or sympathy. I’ve made my bed. I left Mason and ripped his heart to pieces as I ran away. The guilt and sorrow consume me, threatening to choke me everyday.
But today is a new beginning. Today is the day I will wake up with a renewed resolve and determination to do better … to be better … to be worthy. My name is Sara Preston, and this is my story about what happens after.
Hope Over Fear can be read as a stand alone novel.
When I read the blurb right away I was sucked in. I thought this was going to be a heart breaker. Tear jerker, even though I’ve never cried at a book before, but you know I’m trying my hardest. What I’m not expecting is to snort out laughing and get big grins on my face. Grins that a Cheshire Cat gets when he has the mouse in his mouth with the tail hanging out…This book was so refreshing. Ok enough, let me tell you about it.
After ending not only a best friendship, but also the relationship that developed from it, Sara Preston is trying to redevelop her life. For way too long, based on her wrong decisions, she has felt like the villain and that she doesn’t deserve to be happy. But when her ex Mason moves on with someone else, she finally realizes it’s time to rewrite her own life story and give herself a chance to find and be loved.
The chemistry between both of them is totally hot…J.A Derouen totally knows how to write some seriously sexy scenes. I loved all of the supporting characters in this book as well. You can tell that this group of people totally love each other and view themselves as a family. I cannot wait to get my hands on Alex’s story! I also think there may be a budding relationship between some of the characters but I’ll leave it at that.
