KU Sunday Spotlight by KUBR + OCA


“It wasn’t fate that brought us together. It was Hope.”

This book. This. Book. THIS. BOOK.

You guys, I’ve just finished reading Heart of Hope by Lucy Score and am writing this review with red, puffy eyes, a smile on my face, and hope in my heart. And if this is what all books written by Ms. Score leave a reader feeling, count me in as a fan for life.


Heart of Hope is the first time I’ve had the chance to read one of Ms. Score’s books. Between Mila and Christine, KU Book Reviews has had her covered in terms of reviews—and that totally sucks for me because it meant I didn’t have a viable excuse for setting aside the multitude of things I had/have to do to read any of the books I’d already one-clicked on their recommendation.

Yes, you read that right. I own several of her books—I just haven’t read them yet. *Sigh*

But then, fate {or was it Hope?!} intervened and Heart of Hope, along with other Kindle Worlds novellas, was added to KU. FINALLY, my time had come. Mila isn’t reviewing anymore and Christine had already read it {and loved it}, so I snapped it up.

And oh, how freakin’ happy I am that I did. Beau + Bristol completely and utterly won me over. I loved their slow burn romance, the meaning that this story presented, the family connections, and the hope that was present on every page.

Heart of Hope is about the gift of life. It’s about second chances—at life, naturally, but also at love and forgiveness. It’s about finding peace and happiness and looking for the signs that the ones we love are never truly gone. It’s laugh-out-loud funny at times, which is great because there’s something else you need to know about this book—

You can’t read it without a box of tissues nearby.

That’s not an exaggeration. I’m not kidding when I say I cried. Not one or two tears. Not that “This is super heartfelt” well of tears that never quite fall. I’m talking big, fat tears rolling down my cheeks—and bumping past the creases formed by my smile. Which explains why, as I try to stop gushing about a book I could happily chat to you all about for quite some time to come, I have red, puffy eyes, a big, bright smile and a heart full of hope.

They were bound together by something stronger than mere physical attraction, something she didn’t even know about yet. And he couldn’t help but start to reconsider his stance on fate.

As of 12.03.2017, Heart of Hope is available with Kindle Unlimited.
