~USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe
Ahhh, my loves!! IT IS HERE! IT IS HERE! I can't even express to you how freaking overjoyed I am over HOLD ON TO HOPE! This is my favorite book I have ever written, and Evan is absolutely everything - more than I ever could have imagined when I started writing. Evan and Frankie Leigh's story came to life in a way that absolutely CAPTURED me, heart and soul, and I am so excited and proud to share their story with you!

✓ All the Feels
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...
“all the feels, 5 stars”
Since the day they met it’s always been Frankie Leigh and Evan. Where there is one there is the other, or there used to be. Before Evan took off without notice. He didn’t know it then but he broken Frankie’s heart. And now that he’s back he sees the error of his ways. Only this time he’s not alone. He has a little boy with him, the only other personal besides Frankie that makes him feel needed. Will he be able to repair his relationship with Frankie or is it too late?
Frankie Leigh gave Evan her heart when they were kids. She doesn’t see his disabilities like others do, she just see’s the guy who’s always been her best friend. But he took off and broke her heart when he did. The fact that when he finally after all this time has a son hurts her on a whole other level. The thing about Frankie though is she will love any part of Evan, even the pint-sized version. Will these two finally get their HEA?
We met these two as kids and now we get them as adults. You don’t know it because you can’t see me, but I’m slow clapping Jackson right now for nailing Hold on to Hope. Where there is hope there is a way and that’s basically Frankie’s motto where Evan is concerned. She doesn’t care that he can’t hear, she doesn’t care that his life may be short, she just lives him for him. I love a story that isn’t about the perfect kind of love. So Hold on to Hope was like the perfect story for me. I hope you love it as much as I did.
