REVIEW : Hold On To Hope by A.L. Jackson


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 . . .

“You two were always something more, Frankie Leigh.”

my review

THIS BOOK DESTROYED ME IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. Seriously. I was one hot mess while reading this book.

Evan. He is swoon worthy! He isn’t your typical hero. He has been fighting his entire life. He is deaf and had a heart transplant at a young age. He is beating the odds and will continue to beat them. Add in the fact he is also a single father. I don’t think I’ve loved a hero in a book more than I love Evan.

Frankie Leigh was Evan’s best friend. She’s loved him for as long as she can remember so when he left three years prior, she was heartbroken and completely devastated. Now that Evan is back will she be able to forgive him for breaking her heart and leaving her?

I loved Evan and Frankie Leigh and their entire story. From the moment they first met when Frankie Leigh was only 5 going forward to present day. Their story is beautiful, it is heartbreaking and it is emotional but so full of hope. These two were meant for each other and they both knew that at a young age.

Hold on to Hope is an emotional second chance, friends to lover’s romance mixed with a little drama and suspense that will break your heart, but slowly mend the pieces back together. A MUST READ and one of my favorite books of 2019.
