My Review

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.  Hope Sheffield has been burned by the system before.  So when a woman she had been counseling and befriended, asks for her assistance.  Hope promises to do whatever it takes to keep her baby safe. Brennan Rawley is a childhood friend and boyfriend that Hope has had a love/hate, love/like, love but I can’t watch you destroy yourself, relationship.  He’s become a successful businessman and now he’s determined to help her keep the baby safe.  Will he finally give in to his attraction to Hope and allow himself to fall in love?  Or is her current situation more than he can bear?

As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Olivia Hardin.  So, when the opportunity arose to review her latest novel, “All For Hope”, I jumped at the chance.  Usually, Olivia’s novels have been paranormal romance.  This time I was happily surprised with a contemporary romance.  Although it was a romance, it really focused on the kidnapping first and foremost.  I love romance novels like this one where there’s an actually story running parallel to the budding romance.  This book was beautifully written with characters you will fall in love with.  Olivia Hardin has done it again, another hard to put down five heart novel!

 About the Author
Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.
