TITLE: Hold on to Hope
RELEASE DATE: October 28th, 2019
Evan Bryant wasn’t your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.
Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.
Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever…
Don’t miss the awesome giveaway for the Hold on to Hope release!
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Second chance romance at its best!! I loved, loved, loved Evan and Frankie! This was a fabulous story.
I have a soft spot for deaf heroes, but Evan’s disability was so much more than not hearing since he also has a heart condition. The heart condition was at the root of why he left town, and there was so much hurt and damage caused to his family as a result. AL did a great job of exploring how that healing happens, and sweet little Everett is a big part of that.
When all is lost, hold on to hope. It gets these characters through a lot of struggles, and there is a wonderful HEA at the end. I didn’t realize that this story is a next-generation spin-off, so I’m definitely interested in going back to read the OG books.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
