An Ounce of Hope

Book 3, A Pound of Flesh

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From the fanfic phenom whose debut A Pound of Flesh had over 4.5 million reads, this sequel, An Ounce of Hope, tells the passionate love story of Carter’s best friend, Max.

Max O’Hare can’t seem to let go of his past: his drug habit, the end of his relationship with Lizzie Jordan, the woman he knows he’ll never get over, and the loss of their unborn son.

After successfully completing rehab and learning to explore his deepest fears and dreams through painting, Max meets Grace Brooks. With her innate optimism, and her love of art and photography, Grace appears to be the perfect girl. Yet no one knows where she came from, or why she keeps her past so closely guarded. Over time, Max and Grace gradually allow each other in—but will he ever be able to fully let go of his past? Or will his heart remain closed forever?

The best HEAs are rarely easy

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

Sophie Jackson has done I again. She has created an emotional and gut wrenching story that is both beautiful and haunting. The story of Max's recovery from drug addiction is a long road of recovery but it is the story of letting himself love again that An Once of Hope focuses on.

Max and Grace both have reasons to stay away from commitment and intimacy. Both need someone to finish their journey of recovery, but neither is ready to ask for the help or let someone in. For whatever reason, life works out in a way that allows Max to be that person for Grace. While Max won't be first to admit it, Grace has become that person for Max as well. Each taking a new perspective on life through each other's eyes. Both of them wanting to help the other and developing a respect and personal understanding of the other. This is a story of letting the past go so that they can have a future, whether it is together or apart.

I loved taking this journey with Max and I loved meeting Grace. She became everything Max didn't know he needed. The ending was a bit of an emotional mess and I so badly just wanted their HEA but I am glad Sophie Jackson made me wait an extra chapter or two because the best HEA are never the easy ones. It's the ones that are fought for and never given up on. Max never thought he would fight for love again. He never thought he could open his heart or be able to risk the crippling risk of love leaving him once again, but he found love again with Grace and he held on. Max transformed from beginning to end and became a stronger version of himself in many ways.
