Finding Hope is a work of fiction in the contemporary romance and interpersonal drama sub-genres and was penned by author Erin Brockus. The work is intended for the general adult reading audience and contains some moderate on-page sexual scenes as well as occasional uses of explicit language. Our protagonist is Hope Collins, a woman who has sworn off romance and desperately wants to restart her life and heal from the past. So when she meets Alex Monroe under the tropical sun of St. Croix, the realism of what romance can be both challenges and entices them. What results is a highly engrossing romantic and sensual tale that kicks off the Half Moon Bay book series with vibrance and excitement.
Author Erin Brockus has crafted an immersive work of fiction ideal for a holiday read or for relaxing with your favorite tipple at home. The narration is smooth and confident with an author who always makes you feel in safe hands, taking readers through a plot filled with ups and downs, self-discovery, difficult conversations, and realistic romantic outcomes. Hope and Alex are well penned to show every dimension, and the psychological and emotional exploration of how they fit together in their personalities is just as important as their physical attraction, which I really appreciate in a contemporary romance. Add to that the delicious tropical location of the work and its wonderful atmospheric descriptions, and you have the ideal romance read for fans everywhere. Overall, I would highly recommend Finding Hope for realistic readers looking for moderate sensuality and satisfying storylines.
