Review: Sweet Hope by Tillie Cole

Genre: Contemporary Romance - Second Chances

Series: Sweet Home Book 3

Release Date: 29th March 2015

Format: Ebook / Print

My name is Ally Prince and I've always been unlucky in love. I don’t know why, I just always… have.

When all of my best friends were falling for their soul mates in College, I was left behind. I was Ally, the pretty cousin of superstar quarterback, Romeo Prince. I was Ally, the best friend to the most amazing group of girls I've ever known—a title I loved, but one I became tired of 'just' being. And I was Ally, the one on which they could all rely.

But to me, I was Ally, the girl with the heart no one had claimed... And I was, Ally, the girl, who underneath it all, was heart-breakingly lonely.

I LOVE love; the thought of it, the nervous excitement of falling for Mr. Right, the desire of someone becoming my entire world... of me becoming theirs. I’ve always wanted passion, heart-stopping, epic, life-changing romance... I’ve always wanted the fairytale… I’ve always wanted it all.

It just never seemed like I would get it.

For the past few years I've thrown myself into my career as a museum curator. I’m the best of the best, the person every museum wants to hire, so when an opportunity came up to move to Seattle, I jumped at the chance. My cousin and my best friend lived in Seattle and I needed a change.

I needed a new beginning.

I wasn't expecting to meet anyone in the Emerald City. I wasn't expecting to work closely with the reclusive new sculptor my all-important gallery design was centered around. And I certainly wasn't expecting to fall for him... heart-stopping, epic, life-changing love...
My real life fairytale come true.

But, like in every fairytale, there’s a villain, a dark and tortured soul... I just didn't know that the villain and the hero in my story would end up being one and the same.

My Rating; 5+ out of 5 stars!

My Thoughts:

Holy-moly Batman! Sweet Hope rocked my freakin’ socks off! 

I jumped straight onto this book immediately after reading the first three in the series and had NO CLUE who Ally’s other-half was going to be and when I worked it out (before the ‘reveal’) I was all ‘no way! It can’t be!’ BUT IT WAS! 
And that’s all I can say without spoiling the book so… Moving on.

The book is duel POV, which was awesome. It was set five years after Sweet Fall, which was doubly awesome as it provides more of Rome, Molly, Austin, Lexi and co. but fills in time between where their books ended and the epilogues pick up.

The book is different from the others in that it’s set outside of college, obviously being five years after the others, and therefore has a more mature feel.

The relationship between Ally and her artist is beautiful! Oh… The feels! Angst feels. Sweet feels. Sexy feels… The pull between them is magnetic and gave me major heart palpitations!

It is such a gorgeous story! Full of hurt, pain, love and redemption. Of healing. Of second chances.
Seriously, all the freakin’ feels!

And it’s so well written… I could so clearly see everything in my mind’s eye. The vision of Ally’s sculpture lit in lavender, the smell of jasmine and the sound of that beautiful piece of music (that I looked up on youtube) still linger within me.

Simply. Stunning. Definitely a must read!
