Ok, I know I went off on a tangent there, so back to the book. I thought the story was well-written though a bit lengthy at times with some over-the-top occurrences, but overall the characters were fleshed-out and interesting enough. The daughter's struggle with TBI came of realistic to me as did the h's treatment of it. The car accident though with the 2 medical examiners, severed head, and chaos seemed too unrealistic though.
Naked Hope is a page-turner and with the exception of a few technical editing glitches, Grant is artful about the way she unfolds a story ripe with sensual heat. And this author really knows how to write hot sexy stuff that will leave you reaching for your partner or your favorite you-know-what in the top drawer of your bedside table! Before you know it, Grant has stolen your heart with her depth of plot and complex characters.
A touch of mystery, this contemporary romance could almost qualify as a romantic suspense as we wonder, what really did happen to Gavin’s late wife? And what went on between Gavin and Jill 14 years earlier? Is Gavin’s daughter Olivia truly more talented than Gavin? Does he indeed resent her? Will she ever regain her musical ability or is the music in her forever silenced?
And most importantly, can Gavin the artist do the one thing Jillian the scientist requires of him?
I won’t ruin it for you. Just… read it. You’ll find yourself smiling, aching for … well… you know… and the surprise ending? You won’t believe it.
Loved it. Will be rereading it again, soon!
I loved LIBERTY STARR, and then when her second book CRADLE OF LIES came out, I thought she’d never be able to top that story.
But then along comes a story like NAKED HOPE and suddenly, instead of cowboys, I’m dreaming of musicians… and I’ve NEVER been inclined to dream of musicians before (nothing against you musicians but you do have a reputation for being temperamental and Gavin is no exception. LOL)
While this story centers around the lives of Gavin (musician) and his daughter who suffers from a brain injury, and there are some family elements in the story, they’re very limited as the focus is on the sparking, heat-seeking, sensual attraction these two opposites who seem to have almost nothing in common, have for each other.
Then, slowly, in true Rebecca E. Grant style, as the author brings Jillian and Gavin together, we begin to see just how much they really do have in common. And just how much they belong together, if only… (and I won’t give the story away by explaining beyond “if only”).
I will say I’ve never read a book like this, and I’ll bet you haven’t either.
Gavin is gallant, a bit egotistical and demanding, yet tender. Jill is an award winning psychologist who can hold her own, even with a powerful man like Gavin. They are the type of characters you can’t help but fall in love with.
Scorching sex, and a palpable sense of what hope means to someone who has nothing else to hold on to, define this book as a true hallmark of quality women’s fiction.
A few chapters into the book and I was already looking forward to the movie—this has to be made into a movie!
I’d give this book ten stars on a five star scale.
There were some things that did not quite gel like how the wife died and the resolution of the case. I would have expected more drama from the firing of the agent. I would have wanted to see what became of Olivia perhaps in an epilogue or in a separate story of her own. These, however, did not reduce the impact of the story itself.
