An Ounce of Hope (Pound of Flesh #2) by Sophie Jackson

  • Paperback: 384 pages
    • Publisher: Headline Eternal (5 Jan. 2016)

    From the fanfic phenom whose debut A Pound of Flesh had over 4.5 million reads, this sequel, An Ounce of Hope, tells the passionate love story of Carter’s best friend, Max.

    Max O’Hare can’t seem to let go of his past: his drug habit, the end of his relationship with Lizzie Jordan, the woman he knows he’ll never get over, and the loss of their unborn son.

    After successfully completing rehab and learning to explore his deepest fears and dreams through painting, Max meets Grace Brooks. With her innate optimism, and her love of art and photography, Grace appears to be the perfect girl. Yet no one knows where she came from, or why she keeps her past so closely guarded. Over time, Max and Grace gradually allow each other in—but will he ever be able to fully let go of his past? Or will his heart remain closed forever?

    Cover:  Another sexy cover.  I like that these covers are not, without being overly revealing.

    I read A Pound of Flesh last year, and absolutely loved it.  
    So I was really excited for the sequel.
    And I did enjoy it, but I don't know if my expectations were too high, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book.
    It follows different characters.  The male protagonist,Max, we met in A Pound of Flesh, and the female protagonist, Grace, is new.
    I just didn't feel any chemistry between them.  As friends maybe, but I didn't feel the sexual attraction that was supposedly there.
    I liked both characters back story.  I love Sophie Jackson writes people- we really get to know and understand them.  And she's an author that shows us things, not just telling us.  Her characters definitely have depth.
    I still really enjoyed this book, and would definitely still recommend picking it up.
    I look forward to more books in this series.
    3.5/5 stars.

    Read from January 18 to 24, 2016
