R E V I E W ➠ 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 . . . 

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2019

And I finally knew exactly what it was that I was supposed to be fighting for.


Frankie was like a whole fucking garden. A thousand acres blooming in my hands. Her body a rainbow. Her soul the sun.

Not my first read by author, a little while ago she was a NEW to me author that quickly became a FAVORITE one! And this stand-alone was MAGIC!

The beginning to Frankie and Evan’s store was actually their ending. Frankie’s heart not only shattered when he just left her three years ago but is in pieces that will never be able to be put back together. They were friends before anything and THAT is what hurt a little more after he left, left her in the wake.

‘But he couldn’t come close to understanding the depth of the scars he’s left me with.’

My heart on this…I mean, Amy almost about killed me with this. I can’t reveal too much because believe me when you realize it all in the beginning…you’ll be swiping through pages faster because it’s captivating yes but it get’s a hold of your heart strings and every page turns a sound. The reason for Evan’s leaving, the lies, the secrets…the return isn’t an easy one for a lot of reasons & Frankie might just need to set aside old feelings to be there for him…I mean they WERE friends before anything. A girl who thought her world was Evan then had it ripped out by him can totally be there for him and guard her heart again, right?!

What you’ll get it, emotion, agony, mystery, yearning, adoration, romance and beauty! So much beauty, not just the words but you will feel this down to your soul!! Get those tissues out because you’ll need them, TRUST ME watching it all blossom…*sigh*
