Abandon All Hope - M J Schiller

Desperate for a big story, Hope Cresswell is trying to fulfill her dreams of being an ace reporter, but her real passion seems to be photography. As she walks into the newspaper meeting room in anticipation of a big scoop, her boyfriend gets the story she's after. The one Hope gets, is to follow a rock star for a week. Not bad except that rock star is a childhood sweetheart.

Chase Hatton is a good-looking, wealthy, talented writer and musician. He's fine with the article and being followed around for a week. Fine until he finds out that it's Hope who will be the reporter.

During their time together, as past hurts resurface and hearts start to strongly beat again, can Hope and Chase move on from what they believe happened between them in high school? Will the embers of their relationship rekindle without them being burned again?

An utterly romantic love story told in flashbacks from both Hope and Chase's point of view, they are a likable couple who through their naivety saw a perfect relationship fall apart. Chase's lyrical prowess is dominated by memories of his love for Hope. Afraid to trust him, Hope endeavors to keep her distance but fate has a way of throwing them into situations that sees them falling for each other all over again. Throw in a sub-plot of a mafioso type business man and things really heat up.

Schiller has written another terrific tale filled with expectations, second chances and ultimately trust. The author has created believable characters, gave a rock star a human side and her easy style of writing makes this an effortless read. A highly recommend read.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author to review. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not required to give a positive critique.
