Chasing Hope by Dana Wayne is the story of two lost souls who are trying to find a hold in this world, but they end up finding each other and themselves in the process. Max Logan joined the Marines and for 18 years he gave his best to his country. Things were going well, but one incident led to a chain of events that made him fall hard and get hurt more than just physically. He always wanted a family, but it seems as if it is not in the cards for him. Enter his next-door neighbors Skylar and Maddie, a mother-daughter duo that barges into his life and they don’t seem to be leaving any time soon. They need him and he needs a family, but who will get Skylar and Max to see that they are perfect for each other?

Chasing Hope by Dana Wayne is my kind of romance, one with heavy chemistry between the two protagonists and a surprise element that brings the story together. I absolutely loved how the story developed, how it took flight and ended. The characters were all amazing, but Maddie was my favorite. She was a breath of fresh air that kept the momentum going and ensured that everything came together in the end. While Skylar had my sympathies, my heart belonged to Max who just tried so hard to move forward, survive but keep his heart intact. I enjoyed the fact that the author kept the themes of familial love along with romantic love. The pace was fast, the love was simple yet energetic, and the dialogues were lively enough to make me want to know more about the characters. To say that I loved this novel is not enough! Absolutely beautiful. It deserves these 5 stars.
