I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
This is the second book I've read by this author and the second in her Hero's Heart Series. To read my review of the first book, Opening Hearts, click here.
One of the things that impressed me about this second book was the improvement I saw in the author's writing. The pacing was much better and so was the character development. There was a lot more focus on the main couple in this one and I liked that.
Jake was very easy to love. He did a few things in this book that had me getting that warm feeling in my chest. Hope was a very interesting character as well. The author did a very good job with the evolution of her character.
While there was distinct improvement in this book over the first one, there were still a few issues. I found minor editing issues as I did in the first one where words, commas, or periods were missing. However, as far as grammatical errors go it was nothing that couldn't have been fixed by a good proofreader. The biggest issue I had, though, was in regards to research. There is a flight Jake makes that is highly improbable and actually violates FAA regulations. If he was presented as a reckless pilot, this might be able to be explained but he's made out to be just the opposite.
Even with those issues, I highly enjoyed the story. I think this is an author to watch and one I hope to continue following.
I would recommend this book to anyone show is looking for a solid contemporary romance with a little bit of heat.
