Sara Preston learns that the man she loves is marrying someone else. She is happy but. hurt at the same time because she is the one who ended it with him but, it is how she ended it that has guilt eating away at her.
Trying to move on, she comes out of her shell. She starts volunteering at New Horizons Outreach Center. This is where she meets Adam Hunt. Sara learns real quick the devastating tragedy that left Adam a single father to, two beautiful kids.
I absolutely loved all the characters in this book. The story keeps you sucked in the entire time and you can't help but, love the family that forms in this book.
TWO: I started reading JA DeRouen with Low Over High and Ever Over After first; it was a little out of order. With that being said, I love how it is totally OK to go back and picking up this one and it all be completely new. Nothing was ruined by starting the series at the end.
THREE: The words were just as good if not better as the cover. There is something I craved about JA DeRouen's writing, and SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT with Hope Over Fear. I really loved this story. I love the detail that she put into the story that makes you feel like you are apart of it. The romance between the two main characters is undeniable. She made me love Sara and fall so hard for Adam. I was truly happy with this story.
Sara is really good at her job as a L&D nurse and she got a job at a local center to help adoptive parents - Sara actually shines at her jobs. Truthfully, I found Sara hard to connect with. She had relatable qualities, but as an overall character, I couldn't form an attachment to her. On the one hand, she was a true good girl at the core, works hard, stays out of trouble and only wants the best for other people. She was definitely insecure and had self-esteem issues, putting herself in a place of self-loathing. When Adam comes into the picture, suddenly Sara is all snappy and full of sass, which might be a tribute to the emotions Adam brings out of her, but seemed a little uncharacteristic.
Adam is another person I couldn't invest myself in. Sure, I liked him all right, but I wasn't feeling the chemistry between he and Sara. Yes, the chemistry was there and they could feel it, but I was indifferent towards it. Adam is actually a caring guy who wants to get to know all of Sara, including the bad. Their problems stem from distrust because Adam won't let Sara into the most important part of his life if Sara won't tell him the truth about her past. There are definitely scenes that are charged with emotions and well-written. As for Sara's secret, it wasn't nearly as bad as I had imagined so basically Sara was vilified way worse than she deserved. If anything, I did admire Sara for knowing when to let go and when to hold on. The secondary characters are entertaining and I'm interested in discovering more about them.
Book 1 in a series but a stand-alone story-no cliffhanger.
Sara is a hometown girl you lost her best friend and boy friend, Mason, at the same time. He loved her but she was not ready to commit. She knew he was not the one for her. So, by accident, a situation arises that lets her leave him but he is badly hurt. And, Sara becomes he hated woman because she was so cruel to him.
Enter Adam who is raising his niece and nephew since his sister died. He wants to be with Sara but is not sure if she is the right woman for his family. He refuses to introduce the kids to Sara or let her spend time with them. Both of these people must learn to care and trust themselves before they can commit to each other.
The author also includes a plethora of other characters that you know are going to be future stories. That's ok because she gives enough info about each one to make them important to this story but also interesting enough for their own stories.
