What did you love best about Hope Over Fear?
I love that the issues Adam and Sara face are realistic and relatable. They both had to grow and accept themselves and each other to really move forward. I also loved the overall message that families come in all different shapes, sizes, and combinations, and that loving yourself is just as important as loving someone else.
Who was your favorite character and why?
As much as I loved Adam and Sara, it was their good friends Marlo and Cain who were my favorites! They are loyal and supportive, but also call things as they are. They added the perfect blend of humor and sass to some of the heavier moments in the book.
What does Cassandra Richardson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Listening to audiobooks always heightens the emotions and feelings for me. Things that may be painful to read in a book, become excruciating to listen to. Cassandra Richardson did an amazing job narrating both characters, especially Sara. I could feel her pain and guilt much more than when I had read the book.

This was an amazing start to the interconnected stand alone Over series and I can't wait to listen to the other books on audio as well!

I absolutely loved everything about this book! It is a beautiful story of friendship, love, and redemption. Sara, at a moment of weakness, made an innocent decision that has haunted her ever since. She is a big hearted, loyal,and caring nurse who works tirelessly for others. When she meets Adam, a sexy, tattooed fellow volunteer at their clinic, they get off on the wrong foot. They have a fiery attraction that soon becomes more. But they both have a past and deep secrets that threaten any happiness they could have together. I loved both Sara and Adam, they are very giving, funny, and protective of those they love. They also have a great group of friends who were intriguing, funny and supportive, adding depth to this story. I look forward to finding out more about each of them as well.
Narrator, Cassandra Richardson, is new to me and I really enjoyed her work. I was a bit confused at first on who was talking, when 3 female characters were all together, but after that it was much easier. Her voice changes between genders were fluid and her inflections were perfect, making me feel every emotion. She had just the right balance between vulnerability and strength as she brought Sara to life.
This is my first book by J. A. DeRouen and she is a new favorite author. She created a beautiful story that flowed effortlessly from past to present, revealing a poignant and sexy story that made me laugh and cry and many emotions in between. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this author. I highly recommend this moving, heartwarming, funny and steamy story.
