Book Description

Megan Kimble has finally freed herself from years of abuse at the hands of her ex. Now she can finally start a new life and figure out just who she really is. When her brother Matt dies suddenly, she takes a big risk and moves cross country to live in his house and take over his new business. This could be the chance she’s needed. There’s only one problem now. She can’t seem to escape the irresistible charm of her departed brother’s best friend.

Todd Jordan just lost his best friend and business partner. Watching Matt’s sister move into town, his attraction to her is instant. Can he prove to her that all men are not the same, and resist his own desires as she learns to trust again? Overcoming the odds is just part of their journey. The two must first survive a fateful visit from Megan’s ex to have any chance at happiness.

*Warning: NOT a Christian Novel

----------------------------------
Finding Pride is a book that kept me wanting more, I was unable to put the book down.The second book could not come any sooner, I will for sure be purchasing it as soon as it's available. -- Laurie Kat
----------------------------------
I can't wait for the next book to come out in this series. This is a wonderful story about two people who discover love under less than ideal circumstances. I definately recommend this book!  --EReynolds

1.0 out of 5 stars is this a first draft? July 5, 2013
By Heidi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw no evidence that this novel had received the benefit of editing or proof-reading. It was poorly written and full of errors in both grammar and punctuation. There were inappropriately used words, the repetition of a limited number of adjectives and awkwardly phrased conversations between the characters. The story did not flow very well and didn't make much sense in some places. The main characters were uncomfortably drawn and did not seem right for each other. The weak, confused heroine was not ready for a new romance and the hero apparently had some emotional issues of his own. His tendencies towards anger, jealousy and a need for control were not too admirable. I couldn't feel much for either of them or their odd, clumsy relationship. This novel is in need of some major restructuring and polishing. The effort might have been acceptable as the product of a high school writing class, but is certainly not worthy of a professional writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Story February 24, 2013
By fwitkop
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Megan is running from a very, very bad, abusive marriage straight to her brother's home, but the brother dies before she arrives and that's when the story starts. She gets there just in time for the funeral and afterwards is taken in by the town of Pride and the family her brother had been friends with and gone into business with. She's determined not to become a victim again and to have no personal relationships for a long time. She fails, of course, and that happy failure is the story of this book.
It's not an elegantly written book but the story is alive and true and the characters come across as real people and the town of Pride, Oregon as a place I'd like to visit.
I give this book 4 stars. Professional editing would have improved it. A few typos and a little incorrect English language stuff, nothing major. And I thought the hero, who is great and wonderful and well portrayed by the author, somewhat resembled the villain, who is as bad and as awful as it's possible for a villain to be. At least it seemed that way to me. But those things were minor and in no way detracted from the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good storyline but strong language & explicit sex August 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good book; however, it contains strong language & very explicit sex. The book would have been better w/o either. Please reconsider reading this book. :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs editing. August 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The blurb and the general idea of the story were what made me start this book. I'm trying so hard to continue but it's just too stupid (the simplest way to put it) for example, "Matt was like a brother to him, not only his best friend, but like he was a brother". There's more where that came from and I've only just begun. It really irks me that this book has more than two stars especially with all the errors that could have been prevented with simple editing. I shall give this book a rest and try again tomorrow.

1.0 out of 5 stars Author Needs Writing Lessons November 9, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm disheartened to read that this author has been writing since she was 11 years old!! What schools did she attend?!? Or worse, who were her English teachers? The grammar, punctuation, and abundance of typos caused me to delete this book from my Kindle only 2% into the story! Here are some examples, taken verbatim from the beginning of the book:

"A face that had the same light eyes as his sister." (So the face has a sister?)

"The Jordan's are your nearest neighbors..." (NO apostrophe to turn a noun to a plural!)

"...his hair was longer than his sisters" (So either his sisters are ant-size, or there's a lost opportunity for an apostrophe here--where it's actually needed! And this implies more than one sister, but only one sister is mentioned)

"His jaw was strong with the smallest of clefts in it, his lips..." (clefts are in the chin, not the jaw; and I won't mention the misuse of a comma here)

"...men who where weather worn from years on fishing boats..." (is this supposed to be "were" instead of "where"? and if so, is it the men themselves who are weather worn, or their skin?! If the men themselves are weather worn, what would that mean exactly?)

"She was use to crowds." (USED)

"Well now, if you change your mind, just let me know." The Father said patting her hand one more time." (One of my favorite consistent mishaps: the blatantly poor use of punctuation in dialogue.)

Run on sentences; subject/verb disagreement: "Megan, this is my brother Iian, he's hearing impaired, we uses sign language to communicate, but he can also reads lips really well." She said while continuing to sign. (Sigh...really?! Did anybody proofread this work?!?)

Here's another, what would this be?

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, NOT FOR YOUNG READERS August 9, 2013
By Ria Ora
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was a good read of love and hope and about loss. But, there were many sexual scenes in the book which I was not fond of. I would have given this book a five star, if it wasn't for those hurendous sexual scenes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should not be in Christian Romance section November 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The editor did a lousy job of editing this book as I found numerous grammatical errors not to mention the fact that I really do not appreciate strong language and explicit sex in a book - that is my main reason for reading Christian Romances. Love can be explained without graphic explanations of sexual acts. I found it to be kind of trashy.

1.0 out of 5 stars What?! August 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Would have been a good story except for the completely unnecessary x-rated scenes. No well-written story needs such scenes added. Disappointing!

I would love to hear your thoughts
I did like the book, but I also found that the main character fell into a very cosy and financially stable place, just like magic....then there are all these men falling for her etc....it was a novel after all, but this would not happen in real life....
