Book Review | Hope for Her by Sydney Aaliyah Michelle


No one ever expected much from him. 

Joshua Elijah Griffin, IV is on his last chance. A stint in rehab and a transfer to a new school has scared him into putting his life on track. He’s determined to live up to his family’s expectations, but on the first day of class, Josh meets a girl, and he knows his father won’t approve, but in Carrington, he sees a kindred spirit. He's willing to give up everything to be with her. 

No one ever thought she was special. 

Carrington Olivia Butler is ready to shine. Always in the shadows of her siblings, she goes away to college to break out of her shell. All Carrington wants is to feel special. Josh's attention is exactly what she craves, but their intense and sometimes volatile relationship is more than what she bargained for. 

Josh’s demons return, and Carrington’s feelings fade, but both aren’t ready to give up hope. They give their love one last shot to survive, but hope, may not be enough.

My Review

He was filthy rich and he can get away with anything. Thanks to his name and not to mention his father. Joshua Elijah Griffin IV is on his last chance. After what happened that had placed him in rehab, he was given a chance by his father to transfer to another school and make good. With the pressure of his family’s expectations, he tries. What he didn’t expect was to meet Carrington on his first day of class. He would do anything to be with her.

She lives in the shadow of her family. Eager to start new in college, Carrington Olivia Butler can’t wait for her first day of class. She was ready to get out of her shell. All she wants is to feel special. Josh knows exactly how to make her feel that way. But Josh can be overwhelming at times, and their relationship has too many ups and downs that it was not what she really signed up for.

When his past came back crawling to haunt him, and Carrington’s emotions begins to fade – they have tried to work it out, to compromise. Carrington had been very patient – if I were her, I’d leave immediately. But Josh knows how to work his way to her heart. Now, their love has one last chance to survive…

Hope For Her is one heck of a read. It’s unpredictable and intense. It’s filled with twist and turns that had me wondering how is this all going to end. I had my bets, but nothing prepared me for what the author had in-stored for me. Characters will surprise you, just as when you thought you are sure you know them, they’d turn a 180, and leave your jaws hanging open.
