Author Betty Shreffler - “For a book that will take your heart on an emotional rollercoaster dive into Resurrecting Hope!” Author Dani Rene - “When Jane told me she's writing a dark romance, I had no doubt she'd absolutely kill it, but this is so much more.” Socially Book Nerd - “I am in awe of Jane's ability to take a photo inspiration and turn it into something I could have never imagined.”

I’m broken.
I’m hiding.
I’m not the woman he claims he loves.
Hope Moon is a figment, a fairy tale. A single mom with sunny smiles on the outside, but whose pitch-black insides are riddled with demons.
I can’t look him in the face, can’t tell him who I am.
If I let my guard down, Jack will find me.
Jack’s wrath left me bound in hell. 
Can Hank’s love set me free?
I’ve been hurt. 
I’ve been used. 
I’ve been betrayed.
But Hank Lawless isn’t a man to be trifled with. 
Hope Moon has caught me like a fly in a web. Her gaze is haunted, her moves calculated. There’s more to the dark haired beauty than meets the eye. She’s hiding something. 
I need to find a way to break down her defenses.
I vowed to walk beside her through her own personal hell.
But is my love enough to free her from it?

Jane Anthony nailed it with this amazing book. Hope is on the run from her severely abusive mob husband. A chance encounter with a sexy repair man in her home and she's left with a surprise. She needs to try and move on with her life without constantly looking over her shoulder. Things are going as well as they can be. She has a new neighbor and he has a little girl. Little does either know that his brother coming to help him out? None other that her one nighter from a few years before. The passion and connection is still there but she is terrified he'll find out her secret. They're both damaged, for different reasons but maybe they can heal each other.
Monsters hide in dark corners, waiting for the perfect time to attack. Hope was an amazing woman who had the strength to escape and re-build her life. Now she'll do anything to protect those she loves, even if it means taking justice into her own hands. She can feel bad things in the air. She knows everything can't be perfect for long. I was in awe of her personality and strength. While it was obvious something was off, she did a good job of masking her discomfort around people. Hank has his own set of issues but he loves hard, and protects fiercely. He's a great one to have in her corner. He goes out of his way to do anything and everything for Hope. Most of all, he'll be her savior.
This is a dark story full of angst, but also a second chance of love and hope. This was a nail biting experience that I wouldn't have traded for anything while I was reading. My heart was broken, repaired, and the process was repeated. So many twist and turns kept me going, not wanting the book to end, yet not wanting to wait to find out what the outcome would be. I loved the dual pov, and the diary entries showed us exactly what Hope went through for years. I would highly recommend this book, with the warning of severely dark domestic violence.
