Heart of Glass by Nicole Jacquelyn

The next standalone novel from Nicole Jacquelyn about love, friendship, and forgiveness.

Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he's killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.

Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that's always been fine by her – until Henry's brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother's mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can't seem to turn him away.

Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.

This series keeps getting better. Of all the brothers and cousins in this series, Trevor is the one who is consistently honourable and reliably good. He might not be as exciting as Shane or Bram but he is steady, reliable, and actually more complicated than he seems. I loved him.

All the books in this series address heavy themes of love and loss and family but this book is the one that actually tore at my emotions. This book focuses on the family’s response to Henry’s death. And the family’s reactions to the child Henry abandoned. It is a raw and gritty read and I almost enjoyed the cracks that appear in the foundation of this seemingly perfect family.

The storyline around Morgan’s sister took me by surprise but I really appreciate the way the author explored such a traumatic experience, especially when narrating parts of it through Trevor’s voice. The storyline doesn’t fit neatly with the rest of the book so I’m wondering if we will get another book which carries it on.

While this is a moving read, the angst and guilt surrounding the connection Morgan and Trevor makes the romance elements of this story difficult. And the small child at the heart of this story kinda ruins the heat factor. This isn’t a sexy book, but it is an emotional ride.

Nicole Jacquelyn is the author of the popular Aces series as well as the Fostering Love novels. She is also the mom of two little girls and one lazy Boxer pup. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. Since the age of twelve she knew she wanted to be a writer. But first she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year–with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool–she sat down and wrote a story.
