I liked the story well enough until the hero finds out who the heroine is and how their families are connected. Then the story seemed to fall apart for me. The hero had no balls and ran away. The only reason they saw each other again was by chance (not because the hero realised it was stupid to blame the heroine for something that had nothing to do with HER) so that didn't sit well with me. But what completely ruined the story for me was the heroine's father.

A chance encounter, a weekend to fall in love, and a secret that exposes heartbreaking truths.
A first read by this author, and I was intrigued and entertained. Two opposites -- who definitely attracted the other. Both characters were easy to like -- and my heart broke right along with theirs. A little slow in parts but an easy and fulfilling day of reading.

This was bad and a lot of things didn't make sense.

Stunning Read!!

This story will grab your heart and seep into your soul!

Hope needs a getaway from the city and life in general. What she doesn't know is that fate will step in and show her what she really needs.

Gabe is just so swoon worthy! The perfect BBF! He literally stole my heart. And when his back story comes to light, well, it broke my heart.

This is just one of those books that you can't get enough of. Michelle Windsor has cemented herself as an automatic one click for me!

Losing Hope is a good read. It was a quick read for me because Gage and Hope pulled me into the story. Hope comes from money. In the beginning, she's hopping on a private jet to go to family lake house in Vermont and with that I thought she was going to be an uptight rich girl but she's not. Hope is really a down to earth person.

Gage is a sexy photographer who finds himself with a broken car on the side of a road in Vermont. Hope is on the same road and although she is cautious she still picks

I absolutely loved this story!! This is the story of Hope and Gage. Both have suffered loss. Both have lived with crushing heartache. Yet you could not have two more different people. Even though they have painful pasts, fate steps in and intercedes and what happens next is pure kismet!! And unbeknownst to them, they both have something in their life in common. Something that will change not only their relationship but their relationships with their families. And when this bombshell emerges neit ...more
This is the first time I have read this author and it certainly won’t be my last. Losing Hope had me captivated from the start.

Hope works at her father’s publishing house as an executive. She loves her job and loves her father, but she needed a break. She was working too much trying to forget the betrayal of finding her boyfriend in a compromising position. She decided to take a weekend for herself at her family’s beautiful lake home. Of course, it’s storming, and she is struggling to make it t

This story has a little bit of everything, it was sweet, sexy and funny too. Gage and Hope’s story is fun and light but intense at times and I could feel their chemistry from the moment they met and I was hooked.

Gage is a sweet, stranded photographer, he’s funny and cooks and he's definitely not a serial killer! Lucky for him Hope is trusting and just simply nice. She plans to spend the weekend recovering from a bad relationship and because of good timing she meets Gage. They are so perfect for

This is my third book by Ms. Windsor and I was lucky enough to be able to read this as an ARC. Now, may I just stop for a moment to say how much I loved it? It was just the right mix of sweet and steamy and realistic...this story truly seemed like something that could have happened to a friend you might know. Or maybe even yourself lol. The dialogue was on point, the emotions Gage and Hope experience as they fall in love over such a short time frame and wonder if its "real" or just a product of ...more

Wow I'm in love with this amazing love story!!! It's an easy as pie, falling in love at first sight, honest love story.

Hope is recovering from an intense heartbreak after walking in on her boyfriend with another woman.
Gage is broken down on the side of the mountain in the pouring rain with no cell service.

Fate has other plans for these two that includes a cabin, fire and no power.
I think I was engrossed into their lives so much I didn't see the shattering of hearts until it was too late.

Hope and Gage are the type of couple that seems to just work. You want to see them make it. You cheer for them in every aspect of their story. You’ll want to smack both of them to snap out of their stupidity’s and yes both of them! You fall for them! I loved their time together. Michelle’s writing has really blossom. Her description to details literally had me visualizing the scenes as she described them. I felt like I was right there with the characters! I love everything about this book. Only ...more

I absolutely love this book! Sweet, sad, sexy...unbelievable in every way! Michelle really knocked it out of the park with this one. Hope and Gage are an amazing couple. Both of them are independent and strong on their own - but together? EXPLOSIVE! I love how well developed the characters are - and I love the fact that they follow their feelings irregardless of time. Of course there are a few twists and turns and that makes the storyline even more incredible. Great job! Absolutely recommend thi ...more

This is the first book I have read from this author, her writing was easy and flowed well; her characters were well developed and the storyline did hold my interest. This was a relatively easy and quick read.

Gage and Hope's initial meeting was different and made me stop and wonder whether I would have been as kind as Hope! Both Gage and Hope were strong characters and you wondered how they would work together. They were passionate, and fiery and tried to hide their real emotions.

My hunt for 'Suprise, I'm pregnant' stories continues ...
While the blurb was what got me at first, the execution did not fly.
There was just no chemistry whatsoever.
In fact, the beginning was extremely draggy, on and on about how the couple spent their weeks in Vermont.
I was quickly skimming and flipping over the pages, hoping to find my 'climax' but did not encounter any.
When it finally revealed the pinnacle ... the whole explanation that followed after just ... did not make sense aka super f

Michelle Windsor is an amazing author and after reading this enchanting book you will agree. This is a book about unexpected meetings, love, betrayal, truth, forgiveness, and hope. This is a book that will stick with you long after you finish it, and make you feel like you experienced it. The attraction between Gage and Hope at their first meeting was so electric, you needed them to get together. But sometimes the past comes back and makes things complicated, and makes things that should be some ...more

This was a beautifully written story. I've read other books by this author so I wasn't surprised by the level of writing. I really did love the story. Gage and Hope really appealed to me on so many levels. The story was beautiful and addictive. I definitely recommend it to you romance readers.

This is Michelle Windsor’s third book and it is utter beautiful perfection…

Michelle has crafted a world that is fit for a Billionaire, a submissive florist, a rugged ex-Marine turned photographer and a publisher; a world that crosses socio-economic barriers and brings together some of the most unlikely of lovers.  Her world is rich in color and expression.  I can still close my eyes and picture myself in Michelle’s Manhattan and Vermont.  Michelle has an uncanny ability to paint with words, leav

I met author Windsor at a local event and grabbed a couple of her books. Losing Hope was one of them, and as my first book by this author, she surely has a new fan.

Hope is an assertive woman who just needs some time away out of the city when she happens upon Gage, stranded on the side of the road. After assuring her he's not going to murder her (because isn't that what a murderer would say?), she heads back to her house so he can use the phone.

Right here is one happy reader! I just finished Losing Hope by Michelle Windsor and I don’t think I could be in any more love with a story as I am right now! This is the third book I’ve read by Michelle and each time I am in such awe of her work!
Hope and Gage’s story is one that feels like coming home to your favorite place. I just wanted to snuggle in here and never leave. There were a few bumpy roads but like a true love story things are never unfixable.
Michele writes this story beautifully,
