“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”
~ Bob Marley
Faith was nearly fifteen when her life was torn apart, she sheltered herself from knowing anything about that fateful day.
Six years later she is older and stronger and has decided to confront this sexy brotherhood of hot men she ignored for her own survival.
Harley, Keanu, Text, Levi and Retro will reveal to Faith all is not what it seems and she will discover the level of strength these friends possess.
She will come to realize the secrets they have all been shielding her from in humorous and emotional ways.
Faith isn’t going back to Dallas in a hurry, not until she can help those that need her the most.
This is a story of new beginnings, a strong brotherhood of sexy guys and a love that has been lost along the way. It is a story with twists and surprises that will tug at your heart as well as make you laugh.
Humor is a weapon that can only last so long until life peels the layers back and what is underneath and hurting shows through.
Faith wasn’t there for them when they needed her, but she damn well will make sure she is now.
Welcome to Ocean Beach.
Sometimes you just have to have A Little Faith.
Reader Note: This is a mature aged new adult/adult contemporary romance with a difference. This novel does not contain abusive parents, on the contrary. There is no mean girl, no rape or abuse or cheating. There is however a brotherhood of guys who will make you feel a whole range of emotions.
This novel does contain strong sexual content for the mature 18+ reader.
What I will tell you is this is a five book series with 2 novella's also added to it. My style is different, readers are picking up on it. I am not just having boy meets girl in each book and HEA, there is more, much more going on. This is a series where all characters are strongly involved in each installment.
This book…ooohhhh this book. A Little Faith is the debut novel by Emma James. It is the first book in her Ocean Beach series that revolves around Faith, her adrenaline junkie brother and his amazing friends. This is one of the best bunch of characters that I have come across in awhile. The story was told from several points of view helping the reader become more vested in the story. It made for an amazing read!
If you are looking for a book that will make you feel. This is it. I had to read this book in short intervals because it had me in tears. Along with the tears there were also plenty of laughs. I loved these characters. Strong, vulnerable, supportive and protective who wouldn’t want to be a part of that kind of family? I am very much looking forward to reading the second book that will be released this month.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
