         -Witchy Richey's Booktastic Reviews
"I LOVE the character of Faith, she's one of the best leading females I've read about in a while, her strength and love and hope for more is amazing..."

From the Author

Leap of Faith is meant to leave the reader with a smile and a good feeling of hope, faith, and believing in forever again. Life is hard at times and things happen that are unexplainable. As a result, I wanted to write a story that would be meaningful but also a light-read and would help the reader escape their reality, even if just for a moment, and into the world of my characters. 
I hope you read and enjoy Leap of Faith and fall in love with Faith and Zane.

Great story but…..

I loved the plot of this extremely emotional slightly paranormal read. You actually get two love stories in one since we have the story of Faith and her late husband Jake, then we get the story of Faith and Zane.

The book opens with Jake, our first H, at a fortune teller’s table (not by choice of course). The gypsy tells him the upsetting news that he’s going to die young, but not before cheating death once with the help of a “ghost” with purple eyes. He will then trust that ghost with his treasures- his girls.

Faith fell in love with Jake at first sight when she was seventeen and he was 23 and the single father of Rylee. We get their story through flashbacks throughout the book. Jake was sweet, alpha, and made one heck of an H, which was sad since we knew his story wasn’t going to end well.

Jake and Faith had around seven years together before he was killed. After he was gone she found out she was pregnant with Skylar. She took another 4 years to mend her heart and focus on being a good Mom for the girls and to get the company Jake had started off the ground.

Zane enters the picture at this point and pretty much takes over. I loved Zane. From the get go we were made aware that Faith did not know Zane, but Zane knew her and had promised to be her and the girls protector. Obviously she was hesitant, but they had one heck of a connection. I loved how Zane went all out to show her he was the man her and her girls needed, and that he was all in.

So where does that “But….” come in? Well, it was a great story, but I wasn’t crazy about how it was written. At times, it had a fairytale-ish feel to it. Everyone was just so sweet and perfect. At others, it was almost like a documentary instead of a romance. Why, you ask?

This is an exceptional standalone first book, and not just the first book in a series, but the author's first. It is a story of love, loss and second chances. But it is also about secrets, and Faith has a doozie of a secret.
Faith is seventeen when the story begins. When she falls for Jake, one of her father's soldiers, at first sight, she tells him. And at eighteen, she and Jake are married. But at twenty-five she is a widow with a daughter and one on the way.
Jake was a twenty-five year old single father when Faith entered his life, certain they were meant to be together. Their time together has been magical and he looks forward to their future. Then a fortune teller predicts he will meet death twice in the near future, surviving the first time because of a ghost with purple eyes, but not the second time. So when he meets the ghost, he forces a promise from him. Months later Jake is killed by a drunk driver. Then four years later, Faith is stopped at a red light when she looks over at the motorcyclist next to her. He is a man with purple eyes. And she feels a connection.
Zane met Jake in Afghanistan, where Jake saved his life, then Zane saved Jake's. Jake made him a promise and demanded one in return. Zane saw the devotion Jake had for Faith, and when he received word of Jake's death a year later, he makes a vow to become a better man, one worthy of Faith. Because he knows Faith is his future. And he will do whatever it takes to have her and her girls in his life.
An exceptional KU library read.

** I received a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for a fair and honest review.**

Faith is a lucky woman. She has an incredibly happy marriage and is raising a beautiful little girl as her own, and gets to play competitive Soccer for the USA! She really couldn’t ask for things to be better. That is, until she asks her husband to have his fortune told. Who knew that would change life as she knew it? That purple eyed man would shift her world in more ways than she can imagine or want. Zane has a dark past, a history he keeps hidden, and a love for a woman just dying to get out. How will these two make it work or is it even possible?

Way to go ML Rodriguez! This book is dynamite! After reading the very beginning at the fortune telling part, I wasn’t sure if it was my cup of tea but am I glad I read the book!

It was bone chilling, amazing, tearful, happy, sad, and loving. There are so many words I can use to describe this book. This is the first book that actually made me tear up – way to go ML and break down my tough exterior. The love that you feel while reading this book and in certain scenes is overwhelming. It flows freely from the page and surrounds you. Zane is overbearing at times but the more I read about him and the more he talked the more in love with him I fell. He is a protective papa bear all the way, no questions asked, no ifs ands or buts! I laughed in so many spots throughout the entire story. Faith is a feisty woman and she isn’t afraid to tell you how it’s going to be. She is a strong woman character in this book as well. She is a mom first and foremost above everything else. The author did a great job making her such a powerful character!

The description used in this book is superb.
