Release Blitz: HOPEFUL by Louise Bay

Hopeful cover

Expected publication: July 15th 2014
Hopeful Synopsis
***Not suitable for younger readers due to sexual content and language.***
Guys like Joel Wentworth weren't supposed to fall in love with girls like me. He could have had his pick of the girls on campus, but somehow the laws of nature were defied and we fell crazy in love.
For a short time, I thought it would be for infinity.
On July 10, 2006, immediately after graduation, Joel left for New York. And, despite him wanting me to go with him, I'd refused, unwilling to disappoint my parents and risk the judgment of my friends. I hadn’t seen him again. Never even spoke to him.
I've spent the last eight years working hard to put my career front and center in my life, dodging any personal complications. I have a strict no-dating policy. I've managed to piece together a reality that works for me.
Until now.
Now, Joel's coming back to London.
And I need to get over him before he gets over here.


Hopeful to me is the perfect title for this book. I was hopeful all the way through that Ava and Joel would get a happy ending, whether that be together or apart. Hopeful is set in the present and in the past and I loved this slightly alternative way of writing. It gave a clear insight into the college age Ava, Joel and their amazing group of friends and then the 20 something age views they had. This is not a style I've come across a lot but a style which I loved. It shows how much we change and grow over these years. A circle of friends as strong and supportive and this group is lovely to read about because I for one met some of my best friends at college so this made the storyline very real for me. I loved the happy ending and no I'm not going to tell you what that is and who it is for you will just have to read and find out for yourself. I really enjoyed this book and I award it 5 stars.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the seventies and eighties, I love all things romantic. There's not enough of it in real life so I'll settle for books and films.
I love the rain, the West Wing, London, days when you don't have to wear make-up, being alone, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
