Henry Harris was living his dream as a staff sergeant in the Marines. When he's killed in action, his devastated family is in for one more shock: he had a daughter they never knew about.

Morgan Riley has been raising Etta on her own, and that's always been fine by her - until Henry's brother Trevor arrives on her doorstep, willing to do anything to help and make up for his brother's mistakes. Their attraction feels wrong, but Morgan can't seem to turn him away.

Trevor is suddenly in too deep. He has always wanted a family, but Etta and Morgan come with complications. Yet as Etta brings them closer together, Trevor begins to imagine giving Morgan and Etta the life his brother never could. But he wonders if Morgan will ever learn to trust another man with her heart, especially a man whose last name is Harris.


Heart of Glass is the third installment in the Fostering Love Series but it can absolutely be read as a standalone.

Morgan Riley has been raising her daughter by herself but when the father was killed in action in the Marine’s she finds that his family didn’t know about them and now wants to be part of their lives. While she was expecting them, she wasn’t expecting his brother, Trevor. The moment she laid eyes on him at her front door, she felt a connection. Knowing it is wrong, she fights it but Trevor is just one person you can’t forget.

When Trevor goes to find out about his niece, he also finds the love of his life. Sure, there might be some small regret that she’s the mother of his brother’s child his pull to her is too strong. He can tell she’s hesitant so he’s treading lightly but all he wants to do is make her his.

I want to first start off my staying that I love Jacqueline’s writing style. It’s so smooth and effortless and she always pieces her stories together beautifully. So with that being said, I really liked Heart of Glass. I just didn’t love it like I did the first two books. I had to really think about why and it comes down to two things that I think go together in my world. Connection and angst. I feel the most when there is angst. Since this book doesn’t have much of it, I found my connection not as strong as it was for the first two books. I wanted the angst. I wanted to feel. I wanted to have my heart ripped out of my chest because it makes me FEEL.

Don’t get me wrong. I really liked this book and the story itself. It’s about love, acceptance and family. All of which are necessary and beautiful. I think many people are going to love it. I just wanted more.

If you want a feel good story with a lot of love, then Heart of Glass is for you.


About Nicole Jacquelyn

Nicole Jacquelyn is the mom of two little girls and a full time college student. She hasn’t watched television in well over a year, she still does things that drive her mother crazy, and she loves to read. At eight years old, when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told people she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve her answer changed- to author. By the time she was eighteen, when people asked her what she wanted to do with her life, she told them she really wanted to be a writer- but the odds of that happening were so slim that she’d get her business degree “just to be safe”. Her dreams stayed constant. First she became a mom, then she went to college, and during her senior year- with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool, she sat down and wrote a story.
