A best friends-to-lovers stand-alone romance from NYT Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson
“My FAVORITE!! The love, the bond, the soul connection…. there will never be a love as destined and powerful and sweet and beautiful as the once in a lifetime love of Evan and Frankie Leigh!!!!!!!!”~USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe
“Loving her had been the easiest thing in the world. Letting her go the most brutal.”
“My eyes climbed to hers as if they were searching through the rubble, fingers bloody and knees scraped from the time it had taken to claw my way back to her. I felt her life a goddamn stake to the heart. A scourge. A balm.”
“Love doesn’t work like that Frankie Leigh. We cut ourselves wide open when we love. Make ourselves vulnerable. Our hearts reliant on the other.”
A heartbreakingly beautiful second chance romance. So much heart and feels went into this story. The emotion pouring off of the pages. I was unable to put this book down; unable to walk away from the story that is Frankie Leigh and Evan.
Frankie Leigh and Evan’s story is the kind that just snags your heart from the very first page. The love these two shared was the reach for the stars, once in a lifetime type of love. A love that they thought could move past anything…until the day arrived where Evan would break Frankie Leigh’s heart. Evan thought he was doing the noble and right thing, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth. Evan leaving broke Frankie Leigh in more ways than one and it will be three years before these two lovers are once again reunited…..
Frankie Leigh and Evan are the ultimate book couple. The love and friendship between the two them was immensely palpable. Yes, there was hurt. Yes, there was pain and heartache. But, there was also the purest of love. A love that can withstand anything and any time. A love that burrows so deeply inside your heart and a friendship built to last a lifetime. Three years later and their connection was just as strong. Sure they had some major stuff to work through and lets face it, time has changed both of them, but the devotion was still, clear as day. Their hearts and souls calling out and aching for one another. My poor heart didn’t stand a chance. I was on pins and needles as I went along with Evan and Frankie Leigh’s journey. My heart ached and tugged with every page. I was breathless with anticipation and couldn’t wait to see just how Evan and Frankie Leigh’s story would play out….
Hold on to Hope is a beautiful story of love, hope and forgiveness. It is a story filled with heart, emotion and a little suspense too. A story that will captivate and consume you. The heartache, angst, and romance will all feel as though it is a part of you; as if you are experiencing it all right along with the characters.
Hold on to Hope hit all the marks and took me on the most incredible journey. A.L. Jackson has written a poetic and romantic tale of love and proves once again that there are some loves written in the stars.
In the end, Hold on to Hope left me not only with a big smile on my face, but heart filled with so much love and hope. I loved every single moment of this story from beginning to end. I’m so glad that I trusted this author with my heart and took a chance on this truly incredible journey. I laughed. I cried. I raged. I swooned. I fell head over heels for Frankie Leigh and Evan. Their story was written in the stars and so worth every angsty, heartbreaking, hair pulling, swoon worthy moment……
