  • Perfection!

    I have to tell you that I just love each and every one in the Hope City series. Rory (Hope City, book 7) is the story of Rory and Sandy. Rory McBride is the youngest of the McBride men, and the twin to Erin. Rory was a medic in the Army and just returned home from being discharged. He does not want to follow in his dad’s or brothers footsteps by going into law enforcement, but he does have a calling to help others, and he would like to be a paramedic. He is living at home with his parents, saving money to get his own place, and volunteering as a fireman with the Hope City Fire Department. He is finishing getting his certificate to become an EMT and is hoping to stay in Hope City. His Captain in the Fire Department knows his goals and likes what he sees in Rory and the work he does as a Fireman, so he offers him a temporary job (filling in for another employee who is out) as a paramedic when he completes his certification, and a permanent job waiting after that at a different station, but still in Hope City. Sandy Carmichael is a beautiful, independent interior designer. She owns her own company, Carmichael Designs. Her father is very rich, but since remarrying after Sandy’s mother left them both when she was little, he works less and is trying to repair his relationship with Sandy. Sandy’s grandmother helped raise Sandy and drilled all her “how to act like a lady” knowledge into Sandy. You get introduced to Sandy in Hope City, book 2, which is Sean and Harper’s story. Sandy is friends with Rory’s sisters and the King family girls. Sandy is at the Celtic Cock (a pub in town where all the law enforcement and fire department hang out) with the girls. Rory is also there and sees Sandy and they hit it off. These two have quite the chemistry, and instantly fall for each other. There is a story to Sandy that no one besides her friend Harper knows. She is friendly and smiles like a lady should, yet goes no further than that with men who approach her. Some of the first responder friends of Rory’s start telling him how she is cold, high maintenance, a tease, and requires a man with a lot of money. Rory is concerned about starting something when he is so close to becoming an EMT, so he foolishly listens to these guys and forms an opinion about Sandy. He is very rude and cold to Sandy and makes it quite clear he is not interested, which leaves Sandy hurt and confused. Okay, that is all I am saying because I do not want to spoil it for anyone. The character development was absolutely perfect. This book has all the characters from the previous Hope City book series in here. You know exactly who the characters are by the end of chapter one, which I love that about Maryann Jordan because then you can get lost in the story without wondering where this person came from and who they are. Rory’s story really grabbed hold of me from page one. There are two mysteries going on in this story, and there is also the mystery of Sandy’s story. This book has it all! The suspense, the action, the chemistry, and let’s not forget the groveling…lots of groveling. I loved Rory’s story. I am such a fan of Maryann Jordan. If you have not read any of her books, you are really missing out. Although each book in the series are standalones, I would recommend starting with Brock, Hope City, book 1 because you really need to know the characters and if you read them in order, you will have no problem following the characters as they appear in each book. Really you cannot go wrong by starting with book one. Trust me, you will love them all! Thank you, Maryann Jordan, for another amazing addition to the Hope City series. I cannot wait to see what is in story for us next. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an ARC copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Romance & suspense

    Rory McBride is a paramedic recently returned from the military and still trying to get settled back home in Hope City. He is immediately attracted to Sandy Carmichael when he meets her but allows what others say to influence him against his better judgement and boy does he regret that. When his eyes are opened to the true situation and he realizes what a complete jerk he has been all he can do is grovel. “Snorting, she shook her head. “If women never forgave men for being stupid, there’d be no marriages and certainly no sex!” I really love visiting Hope City. The books are written by two authors with different styles but the stories blend into one harmonious series. They include a great combination of romance, suspense and wonderful family dynamics. -5 Stars!-

  • Love those a Hope City alphas

    Rory is the 7th book in Maryann Jordan/Kris Michaels Hope City Series. I am so in love with this series. Maryann Jordan & Kris Michaels have pair up to bring us into the lives of the McBride’s & King families. I absolutely loved the connection between a Rory & Sandy. There’s plenty of heat, suspense, & romance. If you haven’t started the Hope City series, get it now. You will fall in love with these books.

  • Gossip Often Misleads

    This is the seventh book in the Hope City Series and is proof that this series just gets better. This is Rory and Sandy's story and what a roller coaster it is. The attraction was there the first time they met but he allowed local gossip to cloud his judgement. IMO, he came off as rude and a little bit of a jerk at times. He was former military and sometimes they're direct. She was an interior designer from a wealthy family who was determined to make it on her own. He was working as an EMT. This book can be read as a standalone but you'll get a lot more enjoyment if you have read some of the other books. If you have you'll recognize some of the secondary characters. She was gracious when he brushed her off but fate brought them back together and sparks started flying. This was a great book that was a fun read. I read an arc via the author and voluntarily chose to review it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
