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.
Wow! I absolutely loved this final visit to Tillie Cole's "Sweet Home" series. As much as I loved Molly and Rome's story, I think that this one could be my favourite. It blew me away, it was that good!
In this final instalment to the series, it was my chance to catch up with Ally Prince. Molly, Rome and the rest of the gang were now all grown up and getting on with their exciting lives. Everyone was settling down and starting families except for poor Ally, who was yet to meet the love of her life.
"As much as I adored my job, it could never replace that heart-stopping,
bolt of lightening love I so desperately craved."
Ally had a lot to be thankful for, a great job and an amazing group of friends but she was desperate to meet her Mr Right. I've always liked Ally. From the very first time I met her, when she befriended Molly, I knew that she was going to be a likable character. She was always there to support her friends through good times and bad and it was about time that she found the man that she deserved because Ally deserved a good man.
This mysterious sculptor was more intriguing in person than
I could ever have imagined. Intriguing but troubled...intimidating...
a man about whom my every instinct told me to steer clear.
Now, I don't want to give much away about the story or about the man that steal's Ally's heart because that would completely spoil the story however be prepared for an emotional journey as Ally, at long last met her soul mate.
"I always wanted this kind of love, this intense love...
I just never realized it could be so much more...until you."
This story was amazing. It was a beautiful story about love, hope and redemption. There were moments that broke my heart and there were plenty of times where my heart melted into a big puddle and there was one occasion that caused my heart to stop. I don't think that Tillie Cole could have written a more amazing book that this one. I loved every single thing about this story. There was also the opportunity to catch up with all of the familiar characters, it was like one big family reunion. I have truly loved this beautiful series and I am so glad I listened to all of my book friends recommendations to read it. If you are looking for a new series to get stuck into, I would definitely recommend this one.
"You are my hope, Ally. You're every hope I ever dared to have...la mia luce."
"Sweet Hope" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me!
