Release Blitz & Review for Finding Hope by Evan Grace

Title: Finding Hope
Series: Starting Over #5
Author: Evan Grace
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Jonathan Brooks knows what it’s like to find the kind of love most people only dream of. He also knows what it’s like to lose it in the worst possible way.
After burying his wife and the mother of his daughter, Jonathan lost all faith in love. He struggles to cope with his grief, being a single parent to Josie, as well as taking care of his younger sister Tessa, and he’s convinced he will never be able to love anyone again.
Deaf since the age of four, Shannon O’Tool has always been a fighter and never allowed her disability to define her. 
She’s a strong woman, and when the attractive Officer Brooks makes her an offer that promises nights of pleasure, but excludes any and every kind of emotional entanglement, the redhead beauty is convinced she can handle it. 
When the unexpected happens, life-changing decisions must be made. 
Determined not to open his heart to anyone, Jonathan does everything he can to keep himself as distant from Shannon as possible. But when their agreement to keep things strictly physical turns into something neither of them expected, Jonathan is once again forced to deal with the fact that life doesn’t always turn out the way you want it to. 
Jonathan must choose—
Hold on to the past, or be strong enough to let it go in time to realize that he might just be able to find hope…


This is the first book by Evan Grace that I have read and I LOVED it!! Finding Hope is the 5th book in the Starting Over series and I cannot wait to go back and start from the beginning of this series!!

Jonathan & Shannon are great characters and their story is heartbreaking yet healing and lovely. Jonathan is grieving and has been grieving for years. It was so bad in the beginning that he barely spoke to anyone. Over the years, he has managed his grief, but when Shannon comes into his life, he finally has a reason to learn to let go of the past and move on to a loving future. Jonathan made me want to slap him quite a few times. I understand what he was going through, but at the same time, he never should have said half the things he did to Shannon. Shannon was a kick @$$ woman and she never let her deafness define her. She was sweet, feisty, caring & had such a big heart. Shannon just wanted to love and help heal Jonathan and whenever she got kicked down, she would just get back up and fight some more.

These two characters were both stubborn and they butted heads quite a bit, but the chemistry that they had was off the charts HOT!! They had a connection from the first time they met and it just grew throughout the book, even when Jonathan tried to deny it. I love Jonathan's sister and his daughter and how the welcomed Shannon into their family and vice versa. This author wrote a book that made me cry (quite a bit), laugh, swoon, and had me gripping my kindle and wanting to hug it also!! I cannot wait to see what this author comes out with next!!
