Review of The Hero of Hope Springs
Review (4.5 Stars): The Hero of Hope Springs was an entertaining light-hearted romance where two friends find that home is where the heart is. Sammy has always wanted a loving family and she found that by living with Ryder and his younger siblings. When her biological clock starts ticking, she makes an announcement that she wants a baby but not the relationship that goes along with this. So, when she decides that Ryder should be the father, sparks fly and they both got more than they bargained for. Now, Ryder wants it all with Sammy but she is afraid that their relationship will end up just like her parents.
Gold Valley is one of my favorite series and I understood exactly what Sammy was going through. She didn’t have the best childhood but she wanted someone that she could love unconditionally such as a child. By Ryder being the father, she got the best of both worlds because she knew he would take care of her and she couldn’t imagine her life without him. Ryder was such a great guy and even though he thought he was done raising children, he was absolutely amazing with Sammy and exactly what she needed. Great romance and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
