Hold on to Hope

Release Date: October 28, 2019

~ Synopsis ~ 

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…

A.L. Jackson just continues to woo me time and time again with her heartfelt and passionate romances! With their loving characters and family-like feel, her stories just seem like home, and coming back to the quaint town of Gingham Lakes in Hold on to Hope was such a delight!

Frankie Leigh and Evan really stole my heart with their debut as children in Jackson’s Fight for Me Series. I adored Frankie Leigh, with her sass and sparkle, and Evan, with his joyful spirit amongst all the obstacles he faced with his disabilities. Their special childhood friendship formed an unbreakable bond between them and evolved into an unexpected love that held a very uncertain future which could keep them apart.

‘You find your purpose when your love for someone else becomes bigger than your fears.’

True to the book’s title, Frankie Leigh and Evan’s journey was so filled with hope. Their story was angsty and incredibly heartbreaking at times, yet it was also encouraging to live every day to the fullest. I loved how Frankie Leigh and Evan whole-heartedly believed in each other, and their passion was so tangible. With their obstacles to overcome, they needed the right timing, and I really needed them to find their happily-ever-after as if my life depended on it!

‘A life without you would be living with a hole carved inside of me in the shape of you. And I’m sitting here, right now, asking you to fill it.’

Jackson’s beautiful and poetic writing along with the added suspense consumed me and really played on all of my emotions. She writes the best children’s characters and little ‘Chunky Monk’ offered such refreshing light and happiness to the story. I also loved going back to the familiar faces and places from the Fight for Me Series and seeing how their close ties had kept them together through the years as well. Although Hold on to Hope reads perfectly well as a standalone, these combined are some of my favorite romances by A.L. Jackson, and I highly recommend reading them all!
