Jessica and Matthew’s captivating love story comes to an epic conclusion in the final installment of J.M. Maurer’s Emerging From Darkness trilogy that began with the novels Seeking Love and Seeking Redemption.

I’d been given promises in the past, all of which were broken.
Inevitably, they broke me.
I wouldn’t let those broken promises stop me from believing in new ones, though.
I couldn’t.

Matthew Moi was different.
His dimpled smile and witty sexual banter has held me spellbound since day one.
Falling in love with him came easy.
Marrying him—a dream come true.

Now, he wants something I’m not sure I’ll ever be ready for.
As I struggle, he faithfully remains at my side.
Through it all, his protective nature shields me from an evil I didn’t see coming.

Together, we have it all—love, passion, trust.
Apart, the possibilities are endless, even death.

Seeking Hope is the final book in the Emerging From Darkness trilogy, and as such, is not intended to be a standalone. The trilogy reads as: Seeking Love, Seeking Redemption, & Seeking Hope.

Seeking Hope by J. M. Maurer( Emerging from Darkness, #3)

Seeking Hope (Emerging from Darkness #3)They’ve gone through Hell and back with and for each other and it looks like they’ve finally made it to their happy ending, or have they? The magic of a tropical setting, the romance of simple days and nights on the beach, their big day right around the corner with friends and family gathered together, what could go wrong for Jessica and Matthew?

Apparently J.M. Maurer found a few things with the help of Mother Nature and a dark stalker in the final chapter of the Emerging from Darkness Series, Seeking Hope. As Matthew does all he can to secretly protect Jessica from harm, he cannot always protect her from herself. Jessica is still fighting heartbreak from her past, but one special moment dissolves the final shards of pain.

Not to worry, Ms. Maurer is still peppering this steamy love affair with sweet humor, good times, crazy antics and the joy of being young and deeply in love! J.M. Maurer re-creates real life moments gone wickedly wrong, the kind of moments that will become memories to cherish and laugh about years later! That is where the magic of J.M. Maurer’s talents all melt together like an old scrapbook of real humans, doing real things, all in the name of love and friendship through the good, the bad and the embarrassingly funny!

Jessica and Matthew’s story is true romance, all beautifully told by an author who knows how to put the flutter in her readers’ hearts and the smiles on their faces because no matter what, that is what love does!

I received an ARC edition from J.M. Maurer in exchange for my honest review.



  1. With support and a little belief in Hope, Love & Redemption, one can come a long way, emerge from a darkness that once dulled life, and fight for a well-deserved HEA. But it isn't always that easy, is it? Depression and anxiety are the opposite of rose colored glasses. It takes time to learn that when blanked under those dark clouds, things aren't always what you think they are.

    Thank you for the reviews and for sharing Jess and Matthew's love story with your readers!! I more than appreciate it.
    Laughter & Love for Always!
