Comments Renaissance of the Heart

  • Dianne

    Divorce is painful, especially when you are the last to know that your husband has left you for someone else. For Amanda, when Derek announced the 'someone else' was a man, she was crushed, afraid and emotionally shattered. Forty years old, alone, trying to gain some balance, fate puts a twenty-eight-year-old football star directly into her path. Handsome, a wealthy celebrity and so much younger, Bradley would be any woman’s dream, but Amanda fears being inadequate in every way. Between the bi [...]

  • Becca

    This book had me gripped in within the first few pages. Amanda’s husband, Derrick, leaves her for another man. Never would I think that this would be the twist to a book that I was reading. She meets the quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers through her work and they hit it off. I love football and so this was just one other addition to draw me in even further. I was not a fan of Derrick from the start because of the way that he treated Amanda. He was just plain rude and I could not stand him [...]


  • Cindy Stevens

    This is a great read! I laughed and cried, rooted for Amanda to gain back her confidence when her world was rocked, loved and hated (then loved!) other characters, and enjoyed reading of her journey from the depths of heartbreak back into the light of love. The best part of the book watching Amanda find herself again after being torn down to bits and pieces. Her story may not be exactly like others, but her struggles to figure out who she really is, after years of the 'perfect' marriage, are. By [...]


  • Elizabeth Schwertfuehrer

    Fabulous read! Amanda's insecurities and obsessions were so honest and raw that they were believable and added validity to all of our internal monologues. She melded her love, life and work so seamlessly that I wish she was a real person so I could meet her. I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter and have written some of them down to hang above my desk.Amanda's love for her daughter was palpable and very real. It brought a depth to Amanda that made me root for her all the more. Her s [...]


  • Brenna

    Typically I'm not a romance reader. This book however; was engaging from start to finish. I loved the characters and Pittsburgh references. Two thumbs up for Lori M. Jones!


  • Katie Merkel

    Great read, was hard to put down! An emotional yet feel-good book. Beautifully written - can't wait for another book by Jones!


  • Kara

    I loved the Pittsburgh references and the story was great!


  • Leigh Ann Atwood

    AmbitiousThis story was very ambitious. The heroine confronts four difficult issues simultaneously: abandonment by her husband; discovery that her husband was gay meaning her long-term marriage had been under false pretenses since the beginning; dating a much younger man; dating a celebrity. The author does a good job sketching all the issues, the anguish and joy resulting and the thought process that got her through the trauma and to a good place. I liked that the homosexuality was addressed an [...]


  • Mary Stockwell

    Worst book I've read in a whileWhat an unbelievable and ridiculous story this is. I kept thinking and hoping that the story would get more believable as it went on. It just kept getting worse. Don't waste your time or money.


  • Kimisha

    Love itIt made me laugh and cry. I laughed hard at work and got into this book and I'm happy with everythingt to give too much away.


  • JenniferRicketts (Donnie Darko Girl)

    I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. The synopsis for Renaissance of the Heart drew me to reading about Amanda's story like a magnet. She sounded like a strong female lead, and I wanted to find out how she deals with this shocking blow to her entire life. And I must admit, I was very curious as to how she hadn't noticed any signs over the years that her husband was in actuality gay. This story was on the whole very satisfying. I understood her [...]


  • Julie

    Renaissance of the Heart by Lori Jones is a 2014 Soul Mate Publishing release. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The first chapter sucked me into the story right away as I tried to imagine 15 years of marriage to a man who now confesses he is in love with someone else and no it's not another woman, it's another man. Amanda goes through the grieving process, but manages to pull her self up rather well, I thought , under the circumstances. She has a fourteen year [...]


  • Kelli Guilbeau

    Wow!! Renaissance of the Heart is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It will resonate with your heart and soul. Amanda's journey of self discovery and coping with devastating events and self worth is so real, so powerful. It is something that I think every woman deals with and has to get past. We have a tendency base our self worth on how everyone else looks at us or treats us. This book just spoke to my soul. It had me evaluating myself. I haven't gone through a divorce like Amanda [...]


  • Nadene(Totally Addicted to Reading)

    What would be your reaction, if after fifteen years of marriage your husband suddenly leaves you for a man? Personally, I would feel betrayed and hurt; as such, it was easy to understand how Amanda Lewis felt when her husband dropped this BOMBSHELL.How does one move past, such a betrayal? Renaissance of the Heart provides the answer to this question and more.Renaissance of the Heart is a story that reaches into your soul. It engages all your emotions from the outset. It will make you laugh, cry [...]


  • ReadAlong With Sue

    Lori M Jones.Keep a watch on this author, she really knows how to spin a good story.I love how a book opens up when you start to read it and takes off right away. I hate struggling in a book, its hard slog then, and sometimes you want to start reading something with interest right away.It opens with Amanda. Her husband after 15 years has left. Suitcase in hand and out the door. Not even when she was there to see it!When he makes contact to meet, she really thinks he has had a change of heart. Yo [...]


  • Colleen B

    My emotions went on a crazy roller coaster while reading this book. I think if I were Amanda I would have been in serious need of therapy. Each chapter has me so hurt for Amanda, and so angry for her, and so happy for her, and slightly jealous of her, and angry, and happy, and just scared, and giddy, and a wreck, and just OH MY GOSH. I love when and author makes me fall in love with the main characters. But… when an author makes me fall in love with a complete cast of characters. I’m in awe. [...]


  • Jessica

    This is the first book I have ever read of Lori's and I must say, WOW! Only 4 pages into the book and I was STUNNED. I did NOT see that coming! It had been such a while between the time I applied to this book tour & actually started reading it, I completely forgot what was going to happen! I made the mistake of starting this book at 10:00 at night. I NEVER stay up past 10:30, so it was really hard for me to put it down! Amanda's husband, Derrick, left her for another man. She meets Star Quar [...]


  • Chelsea

    The idea of this book is interesting and intriguing. I am divorced, and even though my ex didn't come out of the closet he had been cheating. So I was like give me this book! So starting it I completely understood the breakup and the questions and the hurt, though my ex isn't gay, it may have been easier? The main heroine is much older than me, not that it is a problem, but she definitely had different worried than I had during and after the divorce. However I LOVE Bradley. Does anyone know a se [...]


  • Wende

    This book captured me from page one. I had trouble setting it down (and I only did so because my Kindle died and a had to recharge it). The next day, I couldn't stop thinking about the story and had to finish it as soon as I had the chance.Amanda thought she had a happy marriage, until her husband left her for another man. Now she's alone, the 40 year old mother of a teenaged daughter, and her self confidence is in tatters.While working at the Ronald McDonald house, a charity that provides housi [...]

  • Leila

    This story cuts straight to the point in chapter 1 – Amanda’s husband Derrick has left her for another man.Not sure where we are going from here, but after 15 years of marriage and 17 years together, you know there is going to be emotions.Having been a child who went through the divorce (not for another man but for another woman) I could relate to what Amanda went through (the depression, the anger).I really, really dislike Derrick. The way he treated Amanda when they were together and the w [...]


  • Ashley

    First off all of you Pittsburgh area peeps should check this book out just to enjoy the random references to the city throughout. This story has everything you could possibly want. It has hot sex (but not raunchy in any way), scandal, love, loss, and lessons. It was as if the author took me on a ride on the Jack Rabbit at Kennywood! My heart and stomach dropped so many times every time there was another plot twist! I loved the strength that Amanda showed even though she had some hard times. Does [...]


  • Carolyn Menke

    A wonderful women's fiction debut by author Lori M. Jones. I loved this book and her super sexy and very real characters and have recommended it many times over! I love how Ms. Jones uses contrasting emotions in her writing style -- tempering the heavy, meaty themes with a humor that shines through.When Amanda learns that her husband of fifteen years is leaving her--for a man--she must pick up the broken pieces, dealing with the fact that her marriage has been a sham, and figure out how to move [...]


  • Sonya Neal

    This was a thoughtful, fun book that was a great read! I read it in less than a day since I literally couldn't put it down! Amanda was devastated when her husband left her for a man, yet she's doing the best that she can for herself and her teenage daughter. She is trying to keep her daughter's life stable yet she seethes with anger at her husband.When she meets the quarterback from her favorite football team and winds up dating him (a much younger, wealthy and famous man), she keeps it a secret [...]


  • Davidandkelley Crandall

    What a refreshing and unique story about overcoming hardship and true difficulties to finally be rewarded with something so worth-while. Jones successfully achieved a heart-warming and soul inspiring tale about true love while working for it rather than having it effortlessly happen. The desire between Amanda and Bradley was seemingly effortless but all other relationship aspects definitely took effort.Many stories have a second chance spin but lack true opportunity for one. Jones has done well [...]


  • Marie Dee

    The moment I first read this book’s description, I thought I’d be bored since I am not really into stories where divorce is concern but I read on anyway. I just wanna say this, I’m in love with Bradley!I definitely love the characters. They are all very interesting and the twists makes it more surreal than it already is.Amanda is such an amazing, strong woman and a loving mother. Bradley is nothing but a sweetheart. They are nothing but a perfect pair!I love the quotes at the beginning of [...]


  • Laura Frost

    Lori M. Jones is a genius! This is not your standard boy meets girl, girl falls in love story. Throw in a teenage daughter, a gay soon to be ex-husband, and a smoking hot new famous boyfriend and you've got yourself a story to hold your attention for hours.With gay marriage such a hot button issue here in Nevada (and many other states), I liked how Jones shows us the effects of hiding in the closet can do to not only the gay person, but those around them. On of the main takeaways that I got from [...]
