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.
Of all the books in the Sweet Home series, Sweet Hope is my favorite. Tillie Cole is truly a master at her craft, and this book proves it. I initially read this book in March 2015 and have re-read it several times since. I have started this review several times and didn’t finish because I couldn’t describe all that this book is. Sweet hope is an emotional story about forgiveness and acceptance. Forgiveness of self and accepting the love and truth that comes from it.

Elpidio is a man with a criminal past. He’s done many things to help his family survive, things that he isn’t proud of doing.  He's damaged the relationship he had with his surviving family members, and he doesn't believe can be repaired. So Elpidio hides behind his name and creates beautiful sculptors that tell his story.

“You’re not the villain in this story, you’re the beautifully flawed hero. You’re the dark hero who has been sacrificing himself all along so others would be safe… and you did it all fully understanding that no one could ever know. But I know, and I don’t care what anyone thinks of me for giving my heart to you.”

Ally Prince has been a supporting character in the Sweet Home series since book one. She's watched her cousin and friends find their soul mates, and she is ready for a love of her own. Ally finds it in the mysterious Elpidio, the artist who's work she's responsible for bringing to life. When she discovers who Elpidio is, the man behind the alias, Ally decides that he's worth it, even when he thinks he isn't. Ally is easy to like because she sees Elpidio's truth, recognizing his guilt in his art. Ally ultimately becomes the light in Elpidios darkness.

"Lei era speranza… She was hope. La mia luce… my light."

I cried so much while reading this book. I felt everything, every time I read the story. Sweet Hope is full of emotions; heartbreak, guilt, endless love, eternal hope. Tillie Cole does an astounding job of making the reader the feel her written words.  Her characters are so well written that they stay with you long after the story ends. Thank you Tillie Cole for giving us forever stories.

“Sono felice insieme a te… Sempre.”
