Hope by Sydney Lane (Choices #3)


4 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

Favorite Quote: "One minute. Sixty seconds. It doesn't seem like a long time, just a blip on the radar of this journey called life, yet so many things can change in the blink of an eye. Love. Loss. Death. One minute can feel like a lifetime."

Like all the books in this series, Hope was fantastic. It grabbed your from the start and if you are anything like me, you wanted to see where Declan's story will take him. We got to see all of our old friend in this novel. I felt like it was bringing us back full circle to Choices. I really enjoyed it. Now, wouldn't you like to know a little more about Eliza and Declan from reading the blurb? I sure did. Sydney is such a tease. Eliza is a girl full of secrets. With a past she is running from and a life she is living in the moment, things are bound to catch up to her. It is just a matter of when. The moment Declan walks into the party, she can't do anything to take her eyes off him. There is something about him that wont let her look away. She has to stop running eventually. Declan had his heart-broken. The women he loves, loves another. He is living life day-to-day, and not really enjoying it. Then while wallowing in his hurt, he sees Eliza at a party. Like her, he can't seem to get her out of him mind. Sometimes all it takes it one look.


If you have read the first 3 novels in this series you will read this one. I am not worried on that. But I do want you to know how great it was. Sydney crafts a novel that works its way into you heart. The more things came to light, the deeper I found myself in the book and its characters. Once I got to the end I was full or emotion. I can't say much without spoiling the end. So I will leave it there. But do you that Sydney develops these characters masterfully and slowly through this novel insuring that at the end you are invested. This novel is a can't miss in the Choices series. Give them a shot, you want to know their story.
