He wore his Widower badge with honor and forced himself to live his life only for his daughter, Madison. Falling for his attractive neighbor was not in the cards for him. It didn't matter that she was the first person he thought of in theCooper Branson wasn't ready to move on. His life was just fine the way it was and no one could make him change. At least, not willingly. He wore his Widower badge with honor and forced himself to live his life only for his daughter, Madison. Falling for his attractive neighbor was not in the cards for him. It didn't matter that she was the first person he thought of in the morning, or the last voice he needed to hear before falling asleep at night. Loving someone and running the risk of losing them again was not a risk he was willing to take. Faith Douglas was ready to reinvent herself. After a hurtful betrayal by her closest friend, Faith was determined to live life for herself. The first step to her new outlook on life was doing something she would have never done before. Walking across the lawn and saying hello to her new, hunky neighbor was the bravest thing she had done in a long time. How was she to know that the man would become her world and his daughter would steal her heart? What she never expected was to stand in the shadow of another woman while the man she loved looked right through her. Finding out who you are, while ignoring the expectations of others, is the toughest path anyone can take. Cooper and Faith have to decide if they’re able to move on from the hurt of the past to find their future....

    I have yet to read a book by this author that I did not enjoy.This was Faith and Cooper's story. The story starts off with a bang just how I like it. Faith putting her friend in her place. Faith meets Cooper and his daughter and is instantly attracted to him.Well Cooper takes a lot long to realise his feelings for faith and in the process he manages to hurt her, which was not his intention. The story is intense and I loved that it focussed on the couple and their relationship.This was a great read.

    A well written story that allows the characters to grow and develop. Not one of those instant love stories- you know Hero plus Heroine add water and instant HEA . Both Cooper and Faith stumbling along the way back to real love. You will enjoy their journey along the way.

    A strong FaithThis was the first time that I read a story by Reana Malori I enjoyed reading the love journey of Faith and Cooper. And even the little Madison. Faith and Cooper's relationship was thoroughly thought out and well written. Little Madison's relationship with her dad and with faith again thoroughly written. And very believable I really felt the struggles that faith and Cooper had once they meet and started having romantic feelings for one another. Overall I gave the story of 4.5 rating because I would've liked to of known more about faith and her family prior to meeting Cooper and Madison. I definitely recommend this book to all it was a very enjoyable story. <3

    3.5 starsOverall I enjoyed this story. I really appreciated that it was more about a friendship that grew into love/romance and not about instant chemistry between two characters who spend the rest of the story unable to control their sexual urges. I would've ranked this book higher if it wasn't for the last 1/4 of the book or so. I hate how needy Faith became. She kept saying things like she wasn't going to spend her life waiting on Cooper, yet she never stepped up to tell Cooper how she felt about him. Every other scene she was crying because Cooper hadn't confessed his love to her. It was annoying. If you want to be more than friends, sometimes you have to risk being the one to make the first move. I also hated how they handled things with Heather's mom. But despite all of that it was still a decent story. I definitely do not regret giving this book a chance but I can't say it is among the best books I have read in this genre.

    I loved this story! Faith, Cooper and Madison are such a great set of characters. The development of the relationship between the three and how the other family members reacted to this relationship made for a great story. Loved this story.

    Finding Faith by Reana Malori is an entertaining read. This is a fairly short book, a great choice for those with limited reading time. Ms. Malori has delivered a book that is well-written and loaded it with great characters. Cooper lost his wife to a car accident, leaving him to raise their infant daughter alone. Faith has decided to live her life for herself after having a close friend hurt her. Cooper and Faith's story is touching and filled with drama, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed reading Finding Faith. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.I read a print copy of this book.

    Thank youNice to have a story where the character actually got to know each other for an extended amount of time before sleeping together. Faith new next door neighbor is a widower single father. She falls for both Cooper and his daughter Madison. This story is how they started as friends and grew to love each other as a family. Lovely story not to much angst. Appreciate this toned down story.

    This was good. I enjoyed the storyline. Widower finds love after four years. I liked that Faith had a backbone. His mother-in-law was a trip. The love was not instant, but grew. I will read something else by this author.

    2.5 stars.S'alright. Slightly bland read. I didn't emotionally connect to the couple. Could be because I thought the romance felt rushed, they were just kinda there.

    This was an okay read; it could/should have been better if there was actual conflict. Cooper Branson is a former Special Forces (Army) with a precocious (aren’t they all) 4 year-old daughter. Leaving the armed forces after his wife died to take care of his daughter, Cooper’s been doing just fine with his memories and there’s nothing he won’t do for Madison. Deciding that’s it’s time to move on, Cooper and Madison move into a new neighborhood. Next door neighbor, Faith Douglas, catches a glimpse of Cooper, Madison and the menagerie that is his family and decides to do the polite neighborly thing (home cooked dish).This is a new to me author but Malori has been around for a while and has quite a few books published, I figured now's as good a time as any to read one of her stories. This is in all essence - a friends to lovers story which is great but their friendship was over a long span, a few months during which time each went on dates. There was something about Faith I just couldn’t get in sync with. I didn’t find her personable. There’s wasn’t much, if anything, about her childhood or family. There’s a single friend who had some critical words for Faith but she was ‘dealt’ within the first chapter. The only piece of Faith’s background that I got was that she’d been in a few relationships, nothing too specific and yeah, she’s a plus size woman. Cooper had a bit more history but it was everything to do the life with his wife. There wasn’t much mentioned about his parents who clearly have helped him raise his daughter. I actually wanted to read more on the interaction between him and his daughter and maybe the everyday challenges of being a single parent who works outside the home and is unable to be the constant caretaker for his child. The same way I didn't feel Faith falling in love with Cooper, I just never felt that ‘jolt’ when Cooper went from seeing Faith as a friend to more as a lover. The situation when he started questioning his feelings for her came off as more of a possessive vibe than 'I really like this woman because she's kind, sweet, loves my kid and pretty'. There were glimpses of chemistry but I read it more than I felt it. But what really lacked the most was the conflict - there was none, just a lot of internal angst that didn't ring true especially considering their life experiences and ages. Happy Reading Folks!Rating: CAlso posted on www.redhotbooks.com

    I think this is the best work I have read from this author, 5 stars all the way. It was a complete story from start to finish and it did not lack for anything. The characters were well developed,the situations felt real and the inner dialogue of both Faith and Cooper added an extra element that really let you see the character. Moving on is never easy and Cooper made the first step when he sold his house and moved away from his memories. Faith is instantly intrigued by Cooper and smitten with his daughter Madison. As time goes on the attraction between Cooper and Faith intrudes on their friendship and both characters struggle with the developing feelings. This was a great storyline highlighting the events that drew these three characters together. Each character, except Madison had a roadblock to overcome before they could move forward and truly become the family unit they were meant to be. I loved both Cooper and Faith but there were times when I just wanted to smack them both and get them on track. I loved that Ms. Malori included Cooper's daughter Madison in the couples interactions. Madison played a great part in the story and kept Cooper and Faith together even when they were being silly. Faith had to be one of the strongest female characters I have ever seen, she had to compete with a memory and she did it with grace , respect and a smile. This is a must read for every Reana Malori fan, and if you have never read her before, pick it up. You will not be disappointed and you will quickly jump on the fan wagon for the awesome Ms. Malori.

    This book was one that I could not put down. I was hooked from the first page. How could I not love a book about a widower, who is raising his adorable daughter, Madison! Cooper decides that his daughter and him need a fresh start, which means moving from the home they shared with his late wife, who died in a car accident. Cooper has memories in every spot of his house and it is too hard to move on. Have you ever had a decision that you made and it changes your life? Do you think Cooper thought that this decision of moving would forever change his life and the life of his daughter? I do not think he thought it would. Add in the neighbor, Faith, who was caught peeping out her window on the day Cooper and Madison move next door. How could she not? Cooper is HOT!! Who hasn't peeped out their windows in curiosity to see who is moving next neighbor? Will Cooper stop fighting his memories of his late wife and move on with the woman he loves? How will Faith fight with the memories of the late wife? She feels like she has to compete with a ghost. This book had me thinking about What ifs? What if something happened to my husband? What would I do? I know I could not live in the house where we are now. I could not live with all of our memories here. It would be too hard. I would do the same thing as Cooper, but I do not think I would wait 4 years to do so. What would you do?☆☆☆☆☆I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!Would I read more from this author? Yes!Happy Reading!Melissa

    I truly love the story of Cooper, Faith and Madison. Cooper and Madison are new to the neighborhood--as in the moving truck is still in the driveway--when Faith starts playing nosy neighbor. I mean who wouldn't when their new neighbor is Cooper? Cooper is moving to start fresh and look ahead to the future. Memories of his late wife haunted him and he wanted to learn to move on, so that he and his daughter, Madison, could find their future.Faith had just learned the hard way that sometimes your so called friends are your worst enemies...or jealous! Feeling a little insecure after her friend rips her a new one, hurting her in a way she never expected, she walks out with one thought. What Faith need is a fresh start. To find the 'real' her...put herself out there more. She finds her courage when she takes Cooper a welcome to the neighborhood meal, and from their the sparks light and simmer for a bit while they get to know one another.Malori's characters were very developed, so much so, that by the end you feel like they are real. Her story is totally believable; it could be about any of us.There is humor, tears and every feeling in between. Will the sparks ever fly? Will Madison accept Faith, and more importantly, will Cooper learn to have enough Faith to move on and have a happily ever after? Hit one click on this wonderful read and see for yourself. Just have a little 'Faith'

    This one is my favorite by far from Reana Malori! I absolutely love books about 2nd chances and this was a fantastic read.Cooper lost his wife 4 years ago in a car accident and he has not been able to let her go. Finally, he realizes that he and his daughter needs to make some changes and buys a new house that happens to be next door to Faith. For Faith, it is practically love at first sight, but she knows that Cooper is not ready for a relationship and is willing to just be friends. Cooper doesn't know what is coming over him. He can not get his neighbor off his mind. He feels jealousy when she goes out on a date, thinks about her day and night, and wants to spend every waking moment with her. Sparks fly, passions ignite, love blooms with these two and we get to enjoy their journey towards a beautiful HEA. There was heartache, tears, personal growth, as well as self loathing, denial, and a few sexy bits. It wasn't panty melting sexiness but the sexy bits were steamy. This was written as a multi pov (which I love). The storyline was fantastic, the dialogue between characters was engaging, and the description to details were done really well, making me feel as if I was there as part of the story.All in all, a fantastic read.Would I recommend this book? Absolutely!Would I read more from this author? Yep! I love how Reana writes and her characters are so entertaining and engaging.Sassy Beta Reading & Reviewwww.facebook.com/sassybetareading

    Finding Faith is a great romantic read. This is one of my favorites from Reana Malori. The characters are well developed and I loved how their story grew. It wasn’t an instant meet-fall in love-have sex-HEA story. We got to be a part of their relationship as it grew from friendship to romance. Yes, there was instant attraction, but it wasn’t acted on immediately. Faith, after being verbally beat down by a former best friend, is on a path of re-discovery, trying new things, and being more self-confident. Cooper, who lost his wife a few years ago and needing a fresh start in life, has just moved in next door with his young daughter, Madison. Faith decides to put herself out there and welcome the new neighbors and their story grows from there.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I know I will read this again. The epilogue was amazing. You know when you see something and it grabs you so emotionally you suck air in your lungs, put you hand over your mouth, and can’t stop the tears….ya, that was me. WOW, so powerful.This is a great read that you should definitely one-click!

    Finding Faith was a read that kept me engaged and emotionally connected to the characters from start to finish. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster for most of the read. I laughed, I cried, I hurt for Cooper and Faith and I envied the relationship they built. Cooper was such a devoted dad, struggling to deal with the loss of his wife 4 years earlier. This book highlights the fine line of keeping a loved one's memory alive, while still being able to move forward with your life. Cooper fought all as hard as he could to not let go of Heather, only to realize what that meant to his future. Faith was slightly insecure after an encounter with a so-called friend, and couldn't believe that Cooper would really want her. Faith had a heart of gold, not only did she want Cooper and give him everything she had to give, she gave his daughter, Madison, everything she had as well. It takes a special person to love another woman's child, to treat them as their own and Reana Malori captured that beautifully in Finding Faith. This book is beautifully written, and any romance lover will enjoy it. Make sure that you have tissues available!

    This was an *AWESOME* read...even though there were times that I wanted to smack Cooper in the back of the head LOLI truly fell in love with Faith as a heroine. She is strong and smart, but she does have a little battle with self-esteem (who doesn't, right?). But the way she carries herself and how she treats Madison just endears her to me. I want to be friends with Faith, like call her up and go have coffee with her. Beautifully written character.Cooper, on the other hand, was not so endearing, mainly because of the way that he treated Faith. If I was Faith's friend I probably would have gone to his house and had a few words with him a couple of times. But all of his actions make so much sense, thanks to the great way that the author gets the reader inside his head as well. The tension between Cooper and Faith that Reana Malori creates could nearly burn up the pages, but it is still a sweet, sexy story that you want to see have a happy ending. Do not miss reading this book!! And just a warning...you may need tissues because yeah I cried.

    A Fan of this AuthorThis is the second book that I have read by Ms. Malori; the first book I read from this author was To Love a Marine (I love a military romance). I like her characters. The characters aren't perfect but you can identify with her characters; they are likable, strong, independent but show affection and love easily. The dialogue isn't forced and neither is the story. Here with Cooper and Faith the same holds true. Both are independent, strong characters but easily open their hearts and lives to each other the create a family with Cooper's little girl before they realize that they are a family. Faith continues to love his little girl and silently love Cooper while Cooper comes to realize that he can move on past being a widow and fully open his heart to Faith.Good read.

    Really enjoyed this story! The pace of the romance was believable and it was so nice to see the friendship develop first. The addition of Madison added a whole new level to the romance and had me smiling throughout. The story flowed and did not have any unnecessary fluff. It was a great idea to include Cooper's feelings about his late wife and also Faith's. Cooper's family was exactly what you would expect under the circumstances and it felt very real. There has not been one story by Ms. Malori that I have not enjoyed and this one is no exception! She takes things from our everyday lives and spins them into beautiful love stories with the perfect dash of heat!!!

    Phenomenal Read!!Cooper and Faith – Cooper sells his house and moves away, with his daughter after his wife passes away. Faith is on edge after her friends hurts her. Faith spies when she sees the moving truck next door and likes what she sees. She delivers a welcome package and from their first meeting there is a connection, but Cooper seems to pull away, not sure he is ready to let someone in his life again. Both are trying to move on from their past. Madison, Cooper’s daughter plays an integral part in keeping the two from running away when they needed to stay together. This has got to be one of my favorite Reana books ever!!!!

    Absolutely loved Faith and Cooper's story. There were a couple of times when I wanted to smack the holy heck out of both of them, but all of the drama helped to keep the story more real. They were both dealing with some real life issues and you can really relate to what they were feeling throughout this story. Bravo on another great story from Reana Malori. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    A Very Good Interracial RomanceFinding Faith is a very good interracial romance that earned a rating of five stars. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel as the neighbors meet and find love with each other. A widower with a four year old daughter meets his single neighbor and makes her part of their life. They have many obstacles to overcome to make their love stronger. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading good interracial romance novels.

    Aww we!!I absolutely adored this book! Finding Faith really means finding the will to step out on faith; to loving again after a devastating loss; to not allowing harsh words to negatively impact your life; to not be afraid to take that leap of faith and trust that love will be returned tenfold!Very heartwarming and I highly recommend this book!

    This was all over the placeLet me briefly explain.It went nowhere fast because the timing was so off....back and forth in parent and past. After a while I fertilize I was going in circles. Then every chance there was an opportunity to progress the plot, it was like author changed her mind and drowned you repetitive crap to stall the story. Not a winner.
