Hemingway’s Hope by J.C Thompson is a hot, quick read that is easy to love! This standalone book tells the story of Hemingway and Max, and how love can heal. Hemingway (Hem) is the younger sister to two older brothers who raised their sister since Mom didn’t care and Dad was just another one of Mom’s boyfriends. Hem is a bright, sweet young lady who is forever hiding from a past that she can’t ignore. Hem lives her life determined not to let her past guide her future. She meets Max, and she knows there is something about this man that is different from the rest. My favorite line is “He has the bluest eyes, not like a crystal-blue, but more like the deep-blue in the sky right before it goes dark at night.” Max is the new drummer in Hem’s brother’s band, and his eyes give his feelings away instantly to Hem. Their connection is instant. Max seems to be one of those guys a girl trusts without knowing why. The story starts with Hem getting kicked out of her Mom’s house and going to her brother’s to stay the night. That’s just when she meets Max, new drummer and roommate. Their relationship starts innocently enough, as Hem knows getting mixed up with her brothers band mates is a bad idea, but she can’t resist Max. The story is from Hem’s point of view for the majority of the book, and then switches between Hem and Max as things progress. This confused me at first, since I typically like consistency in this area, but it doesn’t detract from the book at all. The undeniable connection between Hem and Max is what pulled me into this story. Their relationship is sweet and helps them both deal with their lives in different ways. I would recommend this book to any romance reader. Only took me a few short reading session to devour this book, which is always enjoyable.
