WARNING: Author believes in soul mates and insta-love, proceed with caution if you're not a romantic at heart.
Life throws you curve balls, but no parent should ever bury a child. Determined not to make the same mistakes with his son as he made with his daughter, Nic Beuve is single-minded until Hope walks into his life.
Hope Delaney, a woman with a past that almost broke her, tries to keep people at bay for their own protection. Fortunately for her, no one listens when she says she wants to be alone.
Burning desire, a deep need to protect, and a woman who looks like an angel breaks down Nic's defenses until he can’t ignore them. He wants Hope and what Nic wants…
Hope thinks she can walk away at any time she just wasn't counting on a man like Nic to get in the way, or a nosy but loving Cajun Boss. All's fair in love and war and what Maman Rose wants is Nic and Hope together.
Will their relationship survive an ex-wife with an agenda or will her past come between them... or kill them?
Restoring Hope begins when Hope ends up in New Orleans after running from her past. She just wants to keep her head down, and earn some money until she can leave again. But that changes when her meddling boss Rose does her best to play match maker.
Nic lost his daughter a year ago to drugs. Now, he has his son Nicky to take care of and doesn't need a woman to get involved with. But there's something about Hope that pulls him in. He tries to deny it, but before long it is much to late for him. Especially when they realize that she may be in danger. But Hope is keeping things from him, and the truth may be their downfall.
This book wasn't as good as the previous books I've read by this author. I was kind of disappointed with it actually. I was frustrated by what happens to Nic towards the end. That just made me angry. And then I also really hated how Nic treated his ex-wife. I felt like Hope and Nic were both way to nice to her. It drove me nuts.
Other then that I enjoyed the plot line. And I did enjoy both main characters. It was nice to see this two people who were damaged find love in each other. I really enjoyed that part of the whole book. So, overall I did like the book, but it wasn't great.
