Read full description of the books Restoring Hope:++Spoilers++
What started out as a slower paced read picked up big time at about 65%.
I don't have much to say except I really liked it.
This book had some elements that were a bit different than some of the other books I read by this author.
First, is that the heroine was a victim of rape.. no details at all.. it was in her past, a memory, yet she wasn't as traumatized by it as other books I have read where a heroine is raped. Not to say she wasn't traumatized, but she just handled it differently. Instead of being afraid of all men, she was only afraid of the one who did it to her. Her way of dealing with it was by "erasing" that experience with the love she found in the hero. I personally liked the way the author handled it.
Later in the book there is a nice introduction of a secondary romance which I assume is leading into the next book in the series. I am actually interested in reading it.. even though the hero was married before (which I don't generally care for).
I love that this author has a way of writing so that what is usually a trigger for me becomes doable. (meaning the second book, not this one). And I find it rare that I can put this much trust in an author to know that the read will be safe for me.
I do have one criticism. The hero still was not told about the h's rape and the possibility her child was not his. I mean, we the reader know it was the hero's child, but HE never finds out nor does the heroine tell him about her rape. Perhaps this will be covered in the next book?
Lastly... I have to mention that there is a BIG thing that happens that had me DYING, and part of me thought NO! The author CAN'T do this!! But I wont reveal it.. it is too much of a surprise.. and in all honesty I kinda felt it had to turn around, and it did. It was a good bit of drama that had me on the edge of my seat for a few chapters. Nothing that is a trigger, just a bit surprise.
Heroine- Not a virgin - was raped in past, not detailed.
Violence-Some, a little bit more than mild
Sex-Yes, not a lot and not terribly detailed but nice
Rape- See above
HEA/ILY-Yes to both
Marriage/baby-Yes to both
Read information about the authorWhat's to say? I write a lot. I read often. I sleep little. Once in awhile, I've been known to clean the house. A number of kids live in my house and there's this guy they call dad and I call husband. All in all, it's a pretty good life. :-)
