Hope Smolders (Hope 0.5) by Jaci Burton


Jane Kline is a struggling divorcee and single mother with a social life on hold. Not only does Jane not have the time to date anyone, she’s not even going to consider making herself vulnerable to another man after being deserted by her husband. That’s why Will Griffin, her ex’s former best friend, takes her totally by surprise.

What would such a hot and sexy wild card see in a harried mother juggling two kids and two jobs? For starters, everything Jane no longer sees in herself. As she dares to take the flirtation to the next step, Jane finds herself back where she never wanted to be—falling for another man. Now it’s up to Will to convince Jane that she has everything he wants in a woman, and that the second time around can be the best time of all.

Hope Smolders previously appeared in Hot Summer Nights.

My review:

Hope Smolders is a sweet and sexy tale of a woman starting over.  Jane has been burned.  Her ex, Vic, loved his addictions more than Jane and their two children.  Now two years later his best friend, Will, has asked her out.  They have both been hurt by Vic can they move past the past and build a future together?  I got a real kick out of this story.  As a (formerly) divorced mother of two I could so relate to Jane and the issues involved with dating as a single parent.  The author handled it with class and understanding.  Welcome to Hope.
