Read my thoughts!
The next standalone novel from Nicole Jacquelyn about love, friendship, and forgiveness.
Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he’s killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.
Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that’s always been fine by her – until Henry’s brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother’s mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can’t seem to turn him away.
Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.

Heart of Glass is a story about love, loss and a cute two-year old nicknamed Etta. I haven’t read the first two books in the Fostering Love series and I did okay understanding the story and the characters as a stand alone. A small part of me wishes I would’ve read the first two books but that will be explained later on.
This book is very sweet. I didn’t absolutely love it and it’s not one of my absolute favorites but it is a really good book. It is well written, with a nice story and cute characters. I loved Trevor, he’s so protective, caring and so freaking cute, he won me over straight away. Morgan is such a sweet girl, she’s strong, independent, a little stubborn but she’s a really good mom and I never not liked her which is so weird to me, I always find something to dislike.
I will say I wasn’t fully into the story, I did enjoy reading it and I did like the characters but maybe if I had read the first two books I would’ve been more into the family and their story. There were some times when I found myself spacing out, leaving the book for a while and then I’d come back to it not feeling the dread I sometimes feel when I stop reading a book.
In the end, it’s a really good book. I definitely recommend it as a stand alone and as part of the series. You might fall in love with some cute boys and find yourself wanting to move to Oregon (or maybe that was just me because I’ve always wanted to go to Portland).
Massive thanks to Forever/Hachette Book Group for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Unbreak my Heart – Fostering Love #1
What do you do when your soul mate marries your best friend?
If you’re Kate Evans, you keep your friend Rachel, bond with her kids, and bury your feelings for her husband. The fact that Shane’s in the military and away for long periods helps—but when tragedy strikes, everything changes.
After Rachel, pregnant with her fourth child, dies in a car accident and the baby miraculously survives, Kate upends her entire life to share parenting duties. Then on the first anniversary of Rachel’s death, Kate and Shane take comfort in each other in a night that they both soon regret.
Shane’s been angry for a year, and now he feels guilty too—for sleeping with his wife’s best friend and liking it… liking her. Kate’s ability to read him like a book may have once sent Shane running, but their lives are forever entwined and they are growing closer.
Now with Shane deployed for seven months, Kate is on her own and struggling with being a single parent. Shane is loving and supportive from thousands of miles away, but his homecoming brings a betrayal Kate never saw coming. So Kate’s only choice is to fight for the future she deserves—with or without Shane…
Change of Heart – Fostering Love #2
They’ve spent their lives pushing each other away, but what will happen when they need each other most?
Anita Martin doesn’t expect much from life. Growing up on the street, bouncing from one foster home to another, she learned to rely only on herself. Even after she finally found a loving family to take her in, she was still an outsider-something Abraham, one of the family’s older sons, never let her forget.
Abraham Evans doesn’t know how Ani always manages to get under his skin, only that’s she’s been doing it since they were teens. She is-and always has been-undeniably gorgeous. But he’s never met anyone as pissed off at the world as Ani.
For fifteen years, Ani and Bram have agreed on exactly one thing: they can’t stand each other-until one night when their anger gives way to passion. Yet even as Ani and Bram begin to secretly seek comfort in one another’s arms, they remain emotionally worlds apart. When Ani’s life takes a dramatic turn and she realizes she needs more than Bram can give, their fragile, no-strings relationship unravels. One way or another, Ani is determined to survive. But when Bram finally admits his true feelings, he may discover Ani has moved on without him…
