All for Hope

To protect her heart, he left her behind. To protect her life, he’ll leave the life he's made behind. Sometimes the safest distance between two hearts is no distance at all…

Kidnapping a baby wasn’t something Hope ever dreamed she would do. But she’s been burned by the legal system before, so when the court places her friend’s child into the custody of an abuser, she takes matters into her own hands. She steals the baby and fakes her death, hoping to make a clean getaway. She planned every detail, except one. Her high school sweetheart and best friend, who left her years before, sees her at a gas station. 
Hope thinks all is lost, until he offers to help them. Brennan had always been the love of Hope’s life, but he never wanted to be. She knows she cannot depend on him for long. However, as each day passes, it becomes painfully obvious that she is in way over her head. She goes with him, intending to keep him always an arm’s length away to protect her heart. But being on the run together sparks the old flames that once burned between Brennan and Hope. Families, friends, and lovers must band together to save an innocent baby and a daring woman or both of their lives will be destroyed. Together, they’ll do it All for Hope…

Rating: 3.5 stars (out of 5)

I have always been a huge fan of romance. Be it at movies or in books, I love a good romantic story that would make my heart race. Now add to that a touch of mystery and adventure and I’ll definitely be squealing in delight.

When I started reading All for Hope I did not know what to expect. I was intrigued with the blurb and the cover really got me but I wasn’t entirely sure it as my “kind of book”. But, what the heck, I decided to read it anyway and I couldn’t stop.
The main character, Hope Sheffield, is someone who is selfless, pensive, determined and independent. She has a strong, fiery personality and a lot of guts. The plot of the book – what she did – isn’t something you see or even read about every day. This is one of those things that will astonish you and will really get to you and make you question things and wonder.
What I love most about Hope is she’s just that – hope. A ray of light that will keep you believing and afloat and make you hold on even if things seem impossibly hard. Hope has this magnetic, alive personality that would pull you in and make you feel. She’s very genuine and unpretentious that one can’t help but admire her.

I enjoyed reading the book a lot. I rarely come across a book that I’m hesitant to read but end up liking it unexpectedly.
The story just flew effortlessly and well. And the transition between the characters was just as good. The best part about the book is the characters. They will inexplicably draw you in with their dynamic, quirky, alluring personality. They were equally well-rounded and very fun to read. The Rawleys especially are my favorite. They have unique, charismatic personalities that make them stand out. Reading about them was never dull and they sure are an amusing lot.

The second best part about the book? Brennan and Hope. Their relationship isn’t an easy one. With each other, they’re never sure of what would happen next or if things would work out or if is it worth another heartbreak.
Brennan Rawley isn’t exactly prince charming material. With his gorgeous, to-fall-for smile and charming personality, it’s easy to fall for him and get your heart broken. He’s a secretive person who would rather burden himself with things rather than open up to someone. He can be very sweet and infuriating at the same time. But what I liked most about Brennan is that he does things so out of his character that would make you question if he really is the kind of person you think he is.
The romance between Hope and Brennan is slow and sweet and passionate. They had a past that didn’t work out so well and this made them both skeptical about admitting what they still obviously feel for each other.

All for Hope is a book I recommend everyone to read. All parts drama, adventure, humor and romance, this book will make you question things and believe in what people can do and how good they can be. It makes you realize that people do change and that love – true love – no matter how painful can be very beautiful and worth all the heartbreak in the world.

About the Author.

Olivia Hardin realized early on how strange she was to have complete movie-like character dreams as a child. Eventually she began putting those vivid dreams to paper and was rarely without her spiral notebooks full of those mental ramblings. Her forgotten vision of becoming an author was realized when she connected with a group of amazingly talented and fabulous writers who gave her lots of direction and encouragement. 

With a little extra push from family and friends, she hunkered down to get lost in the words. She’s also an insatiable crafter who only completes about 1 out of 5 projects, a jogger who hates to run, and is sometimes accused of being artistic, though she’s generally too much of a perfectionist to appreciate her own work. A native Texas girl, Olivia lives in the beautiful Lone Star state with her husband and their puppy Bonnie.
