"Hope Breaks" By: Alice Bello Review

Hope Breaks
Hope Breaks
By: Alice Bello
     Hope Jones has two problems: one is new, the other is depressingly old.
     The new problem: the bestselling author the publisher she shoots romance novel covers for hates her newest batch of covers. She has until the end of the week to come up with a breathtaking shot or she’ll be replaced. And there’s a sudden model shortage; they’re out of season.
     The old, depressing problem: she hasn’t had a date, sex or a relationship in over two years. She also has one hell of a headache. Hope finds the cures for her two problems during a search through Wal-Mart for a painkiller to kill her headache.
     Turns out the aisles of the retail giant are rampant with hot young model worthy specimens. And when her trusty Ford Taurus breaks down in the parking lot, a hunky mechanic in the Tire and Lube Express department fixes more than just her car.
     Seemingly her troubles are good as gone…but then her new, fabulous cover is rejected, and in a desperate moment she has to choose between keeping her job and keeping the man she’s just starting to fall in love with
My Thoughts
    A few weeks ago, Alice e-mailed me and asked me if I’d be willing to review her book. I’m kind of renown for staying with authors I have read before and I rarely venture outside of what I’m comfortable with. With that said, I absolutely adored Alice’s story and am so glad she contacted me!
      Hope is adrift in life. She’s having a hard time finding her direction in life, and little does she know that a trip to the local Wal-Mart may very well change her life! Going to add a bit of humor here, I cannot tell you how beautifully Alice describes the actual experience of going to Wal-Mart. The sights, the smells, the people...its so spot on and just delightful, I thoroughly loved it.
      Anyway, back to Hope’s life. With a broken down car, Hope meets Jake, a handsome car repairman who knew her when she was in school. An almost instant attraction occurs between the two. Jake sees something in Hope she almost doesn't see herself, which was an awakening of sorts.
     Jake and Hope just click, but a big misunderstanding tear them apart. You can almost bet there will be a sequel because the ending is left WIDE open and boy do I want a sequel. Jake was so different from Hope, funny, loving and just plain open. I thought they fit together and when I read the last page, I just wanted to scream for more. A fantastic story about two opposites coming together and finding “hope” in one another. Can’t wait to see what comes next for Hope and Jake!
