From the fanfic phenom whose debut A Pound of Flesh had over 4.5 million reads, this sequel, An Ounce of Hope, tells the passionate love story of Carter's best friend, Max.
Max O'Hare can't seem to let go of his past: his drug habit; the end of his relationship with Lizzie Jordan, the woman he knows he'll never get over; and the loss of their unborn son.
After successfully completing rehab and learning to explore his deepest fears and dreams through painting, Max meets Grace Brooks. With her innate optimism and her love of art and photography, Grace appears to be the perfect girl. Yet no one knows where she came from or why she keeps her past so closely guarded. Over time, Max and Grace gradually allow each other in - but will he ever be able to fully let go of his past? Or will his heart remain closed forever?

YES! I loved Max and Grace's story. <3
I was thinking maybe Lead Me Not by A. Meredith Walters, but this book isnt as dark as that other one. But the drugaddict thing is similar.
OMG Sebastian made this audiobook better!! <3
Love can heal it all
An Ounce of Hope is a beautiful and sexy story about redemption and second chances in life. I loved Max when read A Pound of Flesh, and I was so excited about reading his book, because he was so broken and I needed to know more about him but mostly, I needed to read how he would get his HEA. I’m so happy I could read—and listen to— this beautiful book. It made me cry so many times, not only with Max’ story but also with Grace’s. They both were damaged but together they were fixed and of course found in each other what they thought lost.
The story begun when Max is in rehab. He struggled with his past, with his addiction and with all that is so wrong in his life. Three months later, Max is out of rehab and ready—not really—to face life again, so he decided to go and stay with his uncle and there he met the beautiful Grace, who had her own demons herself. They started being friends but slowly it moved to something else. Read this amazing book to know how they find their HEA together.
I loved the #Bromance Max had with Wes and Riley. Their friendship was real support for Max when he needed it the most. And of course, Max’ sponsor was a great friend as well, giving him shit when he needed in order to keep him away of the temptation and always leading him to the right path.
Thank God for Sebastian York! That man is the master of narrators. I loved everything about this audiobook, his inflections for Max and Grace. It has dual POV and Sebastian nailed it with an A+. As always, he transmitted their personalities, their emotions and of course, the sex scenes were scorching hot. The audiobook was a perfect companion for this beautiful book.
I can’t wait for A Measure of Love, Riley’s story.
Perfection as usual. Made a good book into a great book.
Even though this book is in a series you do not have to know anything about the other books to read/listen to this one. This story is so wonderful. It's everything you want a book to be. It's happy, sad, realistic, well written. I can't recommend it enough. It's a book you'll remember. The fact that Sebastian York is the narrator made a good book a great book. He was absolutely perfect for this character.
Saying something about myself is easier said than done....
Loved the story & character development, nothing cookie cutter...as always Sebastian York sells it flawlessly. Swoon!
