#BookReview ~ Finding Forever by Michele Shriver

Title: Finding Forever
Author: Michele Shriver
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Chantel's Rating: 5 stars

Finding forever cover
Sometimes life offers a second chance at first love, but only if you have the courage to take it.

Jordan Priestley buried her mother, her alcoholism, and her California dreams to start over in Grande Valley, Texas. Defending the accused in a violent border town is a far cry from the entertainment law practice she abandoned, and that’s the way Jordan likes it. Happiness eludes her until a former client-turned-lover reappears, tempting her with a hopeful future, while dredging up mistakes from her past.

Jake Morrison paid his dues in the acting business. Now, his big break has arrived with a starring role in a major director’s next blockbuster film. The movie shoot takes Jake to Grande Valley, where he seeks to reconnect with the one woman he couldn't forget. As Jake slowly breaks through Jordan’s defenses, an old girlfriend resurfaces, threatening their future and Jordan’s fragile sobriety.

Will Jake and Jordan take a chance on forever, or will reminders of their past be too much to overcome?

My Review:
After reading and loving all of Shriver’s Women’s Fiction books, I was wowed by her first romance. A great read that I highly recommend! Jordan is an awesome heroine. I love her sense of humor and her views on life. She comes with a whole host of problems in her history and things she’s striving to overcome. An alcoholic in recovery and a successful lawyer, she left the Hollywood party lifestyle behind her when she moved to Texas.

Enter Jake, a love from her past who can ultimately destroy everything Jordan has worked for. I have to say, I loved Jake. Maybe he doesn’t make the best choices each time or know the right thing to do, but the care he has for Jordan comes through the page. I really hoped he could break through the defenses she had put up to protect herself. Of course, the past is never content to stay the past, and these two will have a lot to work through if they are ever going to find their forever.  If you’re looking for a contemporary romance with great characters and a good dose of humor that also deals with real issues and isn’t all fluff, pick this one up. 

Happy reading, my friends!
