    Embers of Hope Second Gift series by Kirsten JamesSince the first book I ve read by this author I was impressed with the fact that her romance books is always based on real life situations No heiress or Duke working as a farmhand This is real people in real life and they have real life problems This book the male protagonist has two problems Okay three.One, he has an ex girlfriend who wants him to be the daddy of her baby The fact that he is not the father is not her problem.He also has a friend s wife blaming him for her husband s death.His third problem is that he has always been a man about town Making his credibility less than optimum from the woman with a baby he now falls in love with Our main female protagonist has her own problems.But this is a love story one where the ending is like a cup of coffee, a really good cup of coffee You savour every sip and when at the bottom of the cup, you convince yourself that the cup must be leaking so you go make another cup and buy the next available book in the series.5 Star in a dreamy hero s eye for this bookWaAr

    This one had the potential to be so much than it turned out to be Not really fully well developed story in my opinion Rushed relationship, rushed ending with too many problems thrown into the storyline with none fully completed The storyline involves a fireman, Jason who saved a young woman s life in an apartment fire Two years later Jason and Savanna come face to face once again He has just lost his best friend in a tragic fire and the widow holds him responsible The widow just happens to be best friends with Savanna She is now divorced with a small child There s a former girlfriend thrown into the mix who first blames an unconfirmed pregnancy on Jason and later on Jason s friend who died in the fire Then Savanna s ex mother in law enters the picture, along with the creepy ex husband who is suing Savanna for custody of the young daughter Nothing flowed evenly There were editing errors as well.

    There was a good story in there.somewhere.I rate this book a 3, because it did keep me engaged and I did finish it However, there are several problems with it The first is that in some places, the author has the wrong character name and it is obvious like the main character refers to her boyfriend as Mike rather than Jason or the best friend refers to her husband as Eric rather than Mike The story line also didn t seem fully flushed out There was a lot going on and it hit you very fast and didn t always resolve fully The ending was very abrupt However, I was able to kind of glaze over some of that so that it didn t ruin the book for me I think this book would have been so much better if there wasn t quite as much happening and it was focused on a few of the plot lines used.Also, it seemed like some things were thrown in just to make the book a little interesting, but they didn t pertain to any other part of the book view spoiler For example, when Savannah cringes and freezes when Jason goes to caress her face and they drop the bombshell that Eric had hit her It is mentioned once in the book and Savannah never acts like a victim of abuse anywhere else in the book Even if you are trying to hide that kind of abuse it will come out in other parts of your relationship and you wouldn t automatically trust a new guy this quickly It felt like this was used as a way to develop to Jason s personality than it was to further the book It isn t mentioned again Just one paragraph is devoted to this and it seemed very unnecessary hide spoiler

    Embers of Hope Second Edition When you re dealing with a divorce, a small child, and a breakup with your best friend, life is tough In Embers of Hope, this describes Savanna, the central character, as she faces life s challenges I liked the author s genuine style in portraying Savanna as real as possible someone with a good heart trapped in bad circumstances.Savanna meets Jason, a firefighter dealing with the death of his best friend In the midst of each of their struggles, a relationship starts to bloom, and again, I appreciate author Kristen James s ability to bring the initial attraction to life with quick, honest dialogue that immediately drew me into the story If you are looking for a fun, romantic read, this will give you even The story skillfully takes the difficult parts of life to show how change is possible, producing strength and hope and, of course, love Likeable characters, a realistic plot, and Kristen James s fresh style all work well together to make you eager to keep the pages turning

    I liked the premise of the story Firefighter saves girl, a couple years go by the meet again and feel automatic connection The meeting however is under tragic circumstances, but the bond is very much real to them both A few obstacles in their way, themselves included, but they persevere All that sounded good, the execution just wasn t that great I hate to say that because I wanted to like this story so much Without being too negative, there were a quite a few errors I can over some spelling and grammar errors, because let face it, we all do that sometimes What I have a hard time overlooking is the misplacement of the character s names This happened several times in this book She would be talking about one character, but another characters name would be there I also felt at time that the writing was for a younger audience What I loved was that she showcased the fact that firefighters are indeed heroes because they take the risk of losing their lives in the process of trying to save someone s life This book had the positive side of that, but also the negative side and how the family and friends have to deal with the aftermath I also felt that all of the emotions, including the grief was true to life Even though I am only giving this book 2 stars for my own reasons, I still can t say that it was a complete waste of time I actually finished it, so that s saying something.
