Review: Inspired by Jessica Florence

inspiredTitle: Inspired

Author: Jessica Florence

Year of publication: Out today! The author kindly gave me a copy to read and review

The heroine: Hotel magnate Mia Moretti

The hero: Psychologist/Life coach Logan Woodland

The blurb: Call it pure desperation, or maybe we’d agree it was the lack of sleep that had me signing six weeks of my life away to be bossed around by a life coach. Either way, I was trying to get my life together, and Logan Woodland was going to help.

I thought he’d make me eat healthier, drink more water, and do yoga. What I wasn’t expecting, was to be forced to see myself as I was and how far I’d fallen.

But then his program worked. He’d shown me a life filled with passion and desire. A life where I was stronger and could be the woman I’d never known existed inside me. I did have a six-week life-changing experience, but now, I wanted more than I’d signed on for.


Standalone or series: Standalone.

The review: Inspired is the story of hotel chain founder and CEO Mia Moretti, who is dealing with some very relatable issues: depression, being burnt out, being betrayed by her ex. When Mia sees a commercial on TV late one night, she decides to sign up for Inspired, a six week program in which she gets her very own life coach.

Logan Woodland decides to take on Mia personally, given that she’s a VIP client. He’s determined to take the exhausted, uninspired woman she is when he arrives and make her see the gorgeous, courageous woman who can do anything that he knows is inside her. What he didn’t expect was to fall in love with her. What she didn’t expect was to fall in love with him.

Both protagonists have been married and betrayed by their ex-spouses, so neither of them is looking for love again. Mia just wants to live again, to find joy in life again. Logan just wants to help others find the peace he’s fought so hard for. They’re honest with each other, and Mia begins to see the butterfly inside come out of its cocoon. It makes her bold and confident, and she doesn’t hesitate to take her relationship with Logan further when neither of them can deny the attraction between them.

But when Logan’s world is turned upside down, he finds the calm and peaceful life he’s been leading for a long time suddenly disappears, and he pushes everyone who loves him – Mia included – away. When Mia thinks her deepest fear has come true, she has two choices: go back inside her shell, or face it and fight for Logan. Will she find the strength to do just that? Will Logan be able to pull himself back together before he loses Mia forever?

This book is very nicely written, and the author did a wonderful job of handling very sensitive topics. Reading this book might just find you inspired, too.
