 Every day, Jessica Winters does what she does best—bury herself in patient care within the walls of the neuro intensive care unit, keeping herself busy to escape the dark sadness that controls her life. But the day she sees Matthew Moi, the intriguing man seated at her new patient’s bedside, her shattered heart begins to frantically beat once again.


As Matthew pins his mesmerizing gaze upon her, trying to distract her with his humorous and playful banter, she does her best to ignore him. Somehow he already knows a great deal about her, breaking down Jessica’s barriers and awakening her soul, drawing her out of the darkness and into his arms.


When her painful past resurfaces, revealing truths that threaten her future, Jessica struggles through her issues and fights to stay on a healing path . . . seeking love.


This is a trilogy.

 Seeking Love by J. M. Maurer

Seeking Love (Emerging From Darkness Book 1)Everyone has a past, but for Jessica, it is one of darkness and pain, doled out in buckets full and she has never risen from the depths of her depression. A compassionate and well-trained nurse, her positive life forces are shared with her patients, leaving none for herself. When one man enters her life like a ray of sunshine, she tries to dig herself out of the dark hole her heart has been living in. There is more to Dr. Matthew Moi than meets the eye, he knows more about Jessica then he lets on, but this fragile woman had captured his heart long before he was even a blip on her radar. Will the strength of this man be the healing balm that Jessica needs or will he lose interest as soon as she reveals how damaged she is?

Seeking Love by J. M. Maurer is more than a simple love story between two people. Just as in real life, there is static and interference from others around them, are they being helpful or trying to destroy what is left of Jessica? Ms. Maurer’s writing style flows through the treacherous pages of this heart-wrenching tale as she pulls together all of the pain of her main character and shares it with us. The patience and caring from Matthew is heartwarming, because seriously, how many people, no matter their gender have the patience or heart to help another find themselves? Wouldn’t there be a risk of finding that the healed person is not who you thought they would be? J. M. Maurer has nailed the struggles Jessica faces with thoughtful respect while giving readers hope that things will get better, in spite of the dramas and possible truths she must face. Captivating reading, warm romance with a few barbs along the way.

I received this copy from J. M. Maurer in exchange for my honest review.
