Praise for A Little Faith
Reviews from Goodreads
What I loved was this story has consumed me in ways I cannot explain, and has left me wanting more.
- Debb Lynn

Wow... I'm hooked. I can't wait for the next book.
- Trisha Rai , Devoured Words

A Little Faith is a story with strong direction, well defined characters - outlined with a marvellously written story line and a story driven by a solid plot .
- Katrina Hill, Page Flipperz Book Blog

This book goes above and beyond a romance novel. There is a depth to the story and characters that is often missing in todays books.
- Sarez Tomoan

I gave it 5 stars cause it's a wicked read. You had me crying, laughing, snorting all the way through. Perfect .
- Erin Daniels, Read and Ramble

I had so many laughs and tears reading this book and for a debut novel Emma has done a great job. I even read it in a day, could not put it down. I am so looking forward to Hope is Lost releasing in December.
- Donna Miller, Two Peas In A Pod

I love the way Emma has brought these men together and forged a friendship as tight as brothers. I adore their individual strength and humor, and I love that they aren’t perfect, not just emotionally, but physically.
- Kirsty Dallas, Author

This book was very well written and the story flowed effortlessly. The characters were all well developed and a solid plot. I'm looking forward to what Emma has in store for us in the next book in this series.
- Charlie Sean, Charlie & Mel’s Book Reviews

Whenever an author writes a debut that captures my attention , my expectations are high. I have known this author for a while and I had inkling what she had in store. But when I can say she blew me away and I wished that I could re-read this book again for the first time. I know that I have something special in my hands.
- Tash Mann, Confessions From Romaholics

I honestly wasn't expecting to have such a strong reaction within the first few chapters of this book. It was insta love for me! If you've read my reviews in the past, you know how important it is for me to FEEL something for the characters. Well, I certainly felt enough for Harley, Retro, Keanu, Levi and Text to be reduced to a sobbing mess 5% in. I adore these boys! Every. Single. One.
- Brittany Leathers,  A is for Alpha B is for Books

This is this Author’s debut novel and I must say if this is how she is starting, dear god hold on to your seats. I think she is going to take us on a emotional roller coaster and I for one can not wait.
- Natalie Neck - Naughty Girls

A beautiful story that moved me to laugh, cry & bite my lip in all the best ways. I love these Ocean Beach boys & cannot wait to read more of their journey.
- Jemina Venter, Book Nerd Fan Girl Designs

This is such an original story. From its unique cast of characters, whom I'm already so invested in, the multiple POV narration, to the tragic incident that shaped them all into the people they've become - A Little Faith is fascinating.

A LITTLE FAITH

OCEAN BEACH # 1

RELEASED : 9TH OCTOBER 2014


I had no idea a carefree island vacation would tear my life apart.
But now it’s time to put my walls up, make them impenetrable.
It’s the only way to survive.
~Faith

Six Years Later…

Harley, the protector. Retro, the straight shooter. 
Keanu, the funny bone. Levi, the model. And Text, who can’t seem to find himself.

All their lives were permanently altered by one event.

With a pact made, these five best friends need something from Faith.

Is she ready now to give them what they have been waiting for?

Join Faith as she goes on an emotional and heartwarming discovery where all may not be what it seems.

But with every ending, comes a new beginning, a second chance.

You just gotta have A Little Faith...

Welcome to Ocean Beach.

“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”
~ Bob Marley



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 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, ARC readers are picking up on it, I am not just having boy meets girl in each book and HEA. This is a series where all characters are strongly involved in each installment and not everything ends after each book. I have my reasons and the more installments you read the more you will catch on to what I am doing. I am trying for an original approach with a difference. I hope I succeed. SO I do warn you my endings are very thought out and very deliberate and I promise to have the next installment within a few months. I am a third the way through Hope Is Lost as I type this. The cliffhanger isn't for the gasp factor or to throw the Kindle , it is for a reason which will become clearer as more installments are read. Please forgive me for them.



The blurb is also set out the way it is because I didn't want to spoil anything for readers as there are twists in the plot. I was itching to say more, but I held back.
