First of all, I want to apologize again to Jess B. Moore for now posting this review yesterday. I have been having some very busy days and I haven’t been able to schedule posts in advance. I was planning to finish this post yesterday for the blog tour date I had, but I got very sick.
I have been resting all morning since I wasn’t able to sleep well. But I’m a bit better now and the headache is manageable so I was able to be on my computer.
Anyway, I’m here with the review. And I have photos for the post later this next week, since I wasn’t able to take pics yet.
“Fierce Grace” is the second book in Jess B. Moore‘s Ardent Series. You may remember my review of her book “The Guilt of a Sparrow”. This book is another Contemporary Romance and it was published 2nd November 2018.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Jess for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and by being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book.
Annabelle Dare is in a good place. She landed a sweet job, teaching at the quaint Fox River Elementary School. She has everything she needs: teaching music and sharing an apartment with her best friend. A simple life, she’s convinced, is all she needs.
Asher Grace knows who he is and what he has to offer. Nothing. A poor boy from the wrong side of town, steel worker, with too much weight on his shoulders as he is trying to hold his family together. Best choice is avoiding too-sweet-for-her-own-good Annabelle at all costs.
Annabelle falls in love with the way she comes to life with Asher. He awakens a hunger for life and love in her that she didn’t know she possessed.
Asher must learn his worth beyond his upbringing and his past. Annabelle must learn to stoke the fire of life as it burns within her and learn how close she can get before the flames lick her.

Jess B Moore is a writer of love stories. When she’s not writing, she’s busy mothering her talented and stubborn children, reading obscene numbers of books, and knitting scarves she’ll likely never finish.
Jess lives in small town North Carolina with her bluegrass obsessed family. She takes too many pictures of her cat, thinking the Internet loves him as much as she does. She is a firm believer of swapping stories over coffee or wine, and that there should always be dark chocolate involved.
The Guilt of a Sparrow is her debut novel combining her interests in family, music, and small towns into a thoughtful tale of growing up and falling in love. Her second book, Fierce Grace, follows similar themes in a whole new way, and will be available later in 2018.
I was so excited about this book because I loved “The Guilt of a Sparrow” and I knew I would loved this one too. I was right. An engaging storyline full of amazing moments and two main characters that made me love the book so much because of their interactions and their personality.
Jess B. Moore’s writing style is fantastic, she can make us connect with the characters by writing in a captivating and intriguing way that makes the storyline emotional, genuine and real.
From Annabelle and Asher to all the secondary characters in this story, they are well developed characters, but there is still room for growth and that made it so exciting to read the next page, and the next page and the page, until I could understand them. Plus, this book had the same feeling as the previous one, that familiar feeling, and the feeling like I was their friends. Which made me connect with the characters and I liked that because I felt closer to them.
I love Annabelle from the start, I felt like I could relate to her in some ways. And I liked Asher too. I think they complemented each other well, and that just made me wonder about their future from chapter to chapter, since I was rooting for them to have happiness in the end.
Overall, this book could be a standalone, but I recommend you guys read the previous book. You will find a small-town community with amazingly well written characters, that make the book felt like reality, plus a well balanced flow and storyline that gave as much importance to the plot as the off scenes, with humor and thoughtful moments.
