To build a future together
They must both let go of the past…
Returning home after a bad breakup, Jordan Wood is eager to prove she can run her family’s store. Setting up a partnership with Declan Porter’s struggling adventure business might do the trick. But the handsome single dad is set in his ways—in business and in love. Can winning his—and his son’s—heart help them all heal?
I enjoyed reading Winning His Trust, set in a small town in Arkansas. Jordan has returned to her home town to work in the family store after being betrayed by her former boyfriend and best friends. She is looking for purpose in her life, and questions if God thinks she’s a failure. Jordan offers to help Declan, who she knew from high school, improve the financial viability of his outdoor adventure business.
Declan has an adorable five year old son, River, who loves dinosaurs. River’s mother abandoned him, and left Declan with all the parenting and financial responsibilities. Declan needs his business to thrive, and a fun romance develops as Declan and Jordan get to know each. Jordan has a soft spot for River from the moment she first meets him while working in her family store.
Declan and Jordan have many obstacles to overcome on their journey to happily-ever-after. I loved the outdoor adventure aspects of the story, including hiking and fishing, and seeing Jordan step outside her comfort zone. I recommend Winning His Trust to contemporary romance readers who like single dad romances with a relevant faith element in the story.
Many thanks to the author for the advanced reader copy.
