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…
Finding Hope is the fifth book in the starting over series. This particular title revolves around Shannon and Jonathan. This book can definitely be read as a standalone. This was my first Evan Grace book, but it won't be my last. This book is incredibly well written.
Jonathan's back story is quite heartbreaking. He looses his soulmate at a young age left to raise his young daughter alone, with the help of his sister.
Shannon and Jonathan's relationship is not all that conventional to start with, and their path to finding happiness is not an easy one. They face quite a few twists and turns along the way that kept me completely captivated with this story.
I look forward to reading more work by Evan Grace in the future and I will be reading the previous titles in this series.
