Entertaining and Inspirational

What a fun book to listen to. I enjoyed watching the changes in both Tucker and Shelby as they helped one another see the value they each had. Humor offset some of the more serious parts as the characters interacted with the kids. And then the way real life seemed to interfere with the connection and trust between Tucker and Shelby and they both had to learn to give things to God. The story also addressed the issue of places of ministry like the community center that in reality do exist. I'm a push-over when it comes to Ms. Hoopes' books. She never fails to keep me involved and hold me to the end.

The narration is again superb. Ms. Hoopes really knows how to express each character.

I requested this audio book from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.

Sweet story about faith and changing

I enjoyed this story about an angry football player who is touched by kids at a struggling community center. He is able to change his ways and find love as well. There is a lot of of personal growth and a touch of romance. Nice, clean Christmas story.

Awesome clean romance

This is another fantastic book by Lorana. I loved this story of how Tucker learned to control his anger and all the lessons he learned by helping out at the community center. His relationship with Shelby was very sweet and I loved how it blossomed. Lorana is also a great narrator. Can't wait for the next book. Would totally recommend this book.

Loved it

This is a sweet, clean Christian romance. However, don't be out off by the Christian part, it isn't preachy, just faith based. Tucker has anger issues to overcome and because of those, he gets assigned community service. There he meets Shelby the director. Eventually feelings develop between them. Tucker is able to use his status as a pro football player to help the youth community center raise the funds they need to remain open so youth without another place to go can gather. This is a good read that deals with over coming anger, forgiveness, family relationships, etc.

sweet story with a lesson

I didn't realize this took place during Christmas and I normally only read/listen to Christmas books in December. it's not a major part of the story, so it's not bad to listen to during any time of year. it's a pretty simple story with with a lesson. nothing too crazy. I really like that the author narrates her own books. and she's actually good at it!

Not necessarily a football story

Run With My Heart by Lorana Hoopes

I started this audiobook and didn’t want to turn it off. I don’t like football - at all! Let me just get that out of the way, first. You do not have to be a football fan to enjoy this book.

Tucker was not fitting in with his new team after being traded. He had anger issues and they led him to a bar fight. This error in judgment was followed by a requirement to do community service at a local community center.

Tucker learns forgiveness, love, redemption, healing and a sense of community that he has never felt before. And did I say love with the beautiful director?

I was given a code for this book by the author and promised I would leave an unbiased and true review of the book.

Wonderful

This well written book emphasizes how anger, bitterness, and holding on to grudges can cause so much heartache and hurt in our lives. With wonderful storytelling and realistic characters, the author shares a reminder of how God can take any situation and turn it into something beautiful and worthwhile. Recommend this inspiring sweet romance.
I received a free copy of this book and have chosen to give my honest opinion.

A Very Sweet And Loving Christian Romance ❤❤

"Run With My Heart," written by Lorana Hoopes, was just the type of book I needed to listen to today. I was feeling a little out of it, down & lonely; really needed my heart lifted, my spirits set free, my faith lifted up, and I knew listening to something by Lorana would do just that, which it did.

With Lorana being the narrator too, I knew she was able to put even more emphasis into like no one else because she was the author and knew the certain parts of the book that really needed to grab the listener by their heart. She really had me thinking and praying at the same time that the characters were praying in the book. The storylines helped restored my faith at every chapter, my beliefs grew stronger and seem to be back on the right track, I need to be on and I feel better. Lorana Hoopes is not only a GREAT AUTHOR, she's also a GREAT STORYTELLER, something that all authors can't do or have the talent to accomplish. 5-⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ goes out to Lorana Hoopes for both categories Author and Narrator!!!
