From the USA Today Bestselling Sweet Home Series, comes Sweet Hope.

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.

New Adult Romance Novel—contains adult content, sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.

Sweet Hope is the third book in the Sweet Home series and is perhaps my favorite so far. The book deals with themes of guilt and redemption. Elpi and Ally are a true star-crossed pair. Elpi, the intimidating and tortured artist, is in desperate need of a second chance but feels unworthy of salvation. Ally, a carefree museum curator, feels inexplicably connected to Elpi’s work. I really admired her tenacity and unabashed faithfulness. My heart broke for Elpi, and the weight of his shame and his rejection of happiness were overwhelming at times.

Sweet Home by Tillie Cole

Overall, I really enjoyed this sweet college sports romance. I’ve got a soft spot for smart, geeky heroines, and British transplant Molly Shakespeare fits the mold perfectly. Romeo Prince is an alpha male/player wrapped in an NFL-bound star quarterback package. Romeo and Shakespeare. Get it? The two are adorable together, and their attraction is magnetic. Although Romeo frequently comes across as too needy and whiney, the characters are likable, and the story tugs at your heartstrings. I really enjoyed Molly and Rome’s friends. In particular, Texas gal Cass is a hoot!

This was a fun, quick and dirty little read. Lexa is a fact-checker for a fledgling magazine. Three weeks before her wedding, Lexa walks in on her co-worker, Sophie, riding the bologna pony with her fiancé—aka Trager the Mailroom Guy. Jameson Holt is the editor of the magazine and Sophie’s boyfriend—evidently, it’s one big incestuous playground over at InTrend Magazine.
