Annabelle Dare is in a good place. She landed a sweet job, teaching at the quaint Fox River Elementary School. She has everything she needs: teaching music and sharing an apartment with her best friend. A simple life, she’s convinced, is all she needs.
Asher Grace knows who he is and what he has to offer. Nothing. A poor boy from the wrong side of town, steel worker, with too much weight on his shoulders as he is trying to hold his family together. Best choice is avoiding too-sweet-for-her-own-good Annabelle at all costs.
Annabelle falls in love with the way she comes to life with Asher. He awakens a hunger for life and love in her that she didn’t know she possessed.
Asher must learn his worth beyond his upbringing and his past. Annabelle must learn to stoke the fire of life as it burns within her and learn how close she can get before the flames lick her.
Katie’s 5 Star Review:
Fierce Grace (Ardent #2)
By Jess B. Moore
Reviewed on behalf of 3 Degrees of Fiction Book Blog
Having read book 1 in this series I was really looking forward to reading the second book and I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed re-visiting some of the previous character and also meeting the new ones – Annabelle and Asher.
I really liked both of the characters but I think in particular Asher. There was just something about him that drew me to him straight away. I personally thought they made a perfect couple and I was rooting for them the whole way through. They seemed to have a genuine connection and the way in which the author write about them brought them to life – almost like I was right there with them in the story.
Again as with the first book I found the story to be well written and it had a good pace and flow to it. The characters were well developed and it could be read as a standalone however I would definitely recommend reading book 1 as well.
A fantastic second novel by Jess B. Moore and I look forward to reading more from her again in the future.
