A Love So Real
Arianna Carrington-Harder is on the run from the disastrous outcome of a bad decision. Driving aimlessly along the west coast, she’s drawn to the small town of New Hope Falls in Washington State and soon finds herself in a place unlike anywhere she’s been before.
Welcome to the fictional town of New Hope Falls!
A sanctuary for those needing refuge.
A beacon for tho...more
I love this author and have read a great majority of her books. This book is the first time I've felt disappointed in her writing. She spends literally fifty percent of the book laying out a setting and plot. Very little time is given to the dynamics of a relationship between the two main characters. That character development is so lacking that the relationship comes across as sterile, unreal, and, almost, selfish. There were times when Jordan could have really taken the time to de ...more
When I first started reading this story I was intrigued. Anna is a mystery. Coming from a highly visible world in L A, she is presented totally opposite of what I expected. There is scandal in her life and she falls for a man with scandal in his. Good set up for a really good story. But- that’s pretty much we’re the story stays. It was repetitive, went no where; had no peaks and no conclusion. All of the characters were interesting and had potential to be involved in the scandals, ...more
The little town and its residents were interesting and I look forward to learning more about them. Arianna had a very interesting and modern career and certainly introduced us to a whole new concept of earning money in this modern social media world. It would be rather amusing to say my job is a vlogger - at first I thought it was a typo. I lov ...more
I did not truly understand some parts of the story at the beginning since I do not know much about social media. But I love the people I met. The personal struggles they found themselves in and how they handle them were inspiring. Thanks a great storyline.
I liked this story. It talked about social media and how it affected Anna’s life. Anna made money from her videos but as in all things there were problems.. she decided to leave LA and travel for a quieter place. New Hope Falls was drawing her to stop there. She met Eli and his family. Really great adventure. You will enjoy this one.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The first in the New Hope Falls series, you will be meeting quite a few residents while delving into Anna's story. She is running away from a scandal and feels led to come here to get away from LA. A great read
I really did enjoy reading "A Love So Real" by Kimberly Rae Jordan.
It was a very interesting book. I was also a teen before cell phones and internet. So I found that part of the story interesting.
This book will hold your attention until the end ....you should read it!
There’s a lot of narration in this text as opposed to dialogue. It leaves you full of hope, however. It shows that despite their differences, two people can come together, and it shows how GOD works in their lives.
Have you ever read a series of books out of order?
Well, I have and I do it ALL THE TIME if the book is also a standalone. Mostly I notice the book is part of a series when I’m too far to stop reading 😅. So I just keep on.
A few months back I decided to read a bunch of those I read without following the sequel. So, I started with the New Hope Falls series by Kimberly Rae Jones.
❣️ A Love so Real.

Kimberly Rae Jordan is one of a handful of authors that I have read everything they have written. I was hesitant about this one, social media influencing didn't really appeal, it's an unknown for me. I ask myself why I doubted, as usual I was drawn into the story and fell in love with various characters. Now I have to wait for the opportunity to spend more time with them!
The negative, if there is such a thing, was certain phraseology didn't fit with my west coast brain and I found my ...more
