After her husband of fifteen years comes out of the closet, a
blindsided, forty-year-old Amanda Lewis is forced to salvage what
remains of her shattered heart and navigate a new life for herself and
her teenage daughter. But will a sizzling secret romance with a famous
young NFL quarterback lead her to winning the life she deserves or set
her up for her biggest loss yet?
As she embarks on the journey of rebuilding her home, Amanda
discovers that finding forgiveness and repairing her damaged self-worth
are her biggest challenges of all. While searching her soul–and even
searching inside her city's history–she finds answers. But will answers
come too late and can a broken heart ever be truly fixed?
Renaissance of the Heart by Lori M. Jones
Divorce is painful, especially when you are the last to know that your husband has left you for someone else. For Amanda, when Derek announced the 'someone else' was a man, she was crushed, afraid and emotionally shattered. Forty years old, alone, trying to gain some balance, fate puts a twenty-eight-year-old football star directly into her path. Handsome, a wealthy celebrity and so much younger, Bradley would be any woman’s dream, but Amanda fears being inadequate in every way. Between the bitterness of her divorce, the arguments with her ex and trying to be a good mother to her young teen daughter, how can Amanda believe this wonderful and caring man could possibly want her? Will Bradley hang in for the long haul, or will Amanda or public opinion push him away?
A delightful contemporary romance full of twists to the heart, lessons in personal growth and self-esteem, Ms. Jones has nailed a quick-paced, multi-layered romance that will warm you to your toes, love the characters and leave you wanting more! Too bad Bradley may be taken, he would make the perfect book boyfriend, not too alpha, no knuckle-dragging, just a warm, caring man who is gifted with a heart filled with love.
Lori M. Jones’ Renaissance of the Heart is a heartwarming tale of loss, anger and learning to accept there is someone for everyone, if you open your heart, your mind and your arms.
