I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Clay is a man of few human talents. As a wolf, he hunts well and can fight off a grizzly twice his size, but has no aspirations. The idea of a Mate isn’t something he has ever seriously entertained. Dreamed about, maybe, but he knows the chances are nearly non-existent.
Then he meets Gabby, a human girl. She hates him at first sight, yet he can’t let her go. Who he was is no longer important. Now, who he needs to become to win her over is the only thing that matters.
Clay’s Hope is the same story as from Hope(less), the first book in Judgement Series), but this time it’s told by Clay.
After reading Hope(less) I couldn’t imagine that this book will be different. Just a recap. I was a bit sceptical, as Clay is not really talkative… and I was afraid that it will be just description of the events… How wrong I was!
Clay’s Hope is a beautiful story of a man, who was not looking for love, but was hoping deep down that he will find the one and only. How shocked he was, when he met her during Introduction to other potential mates. His panicked mode made him to come with this genius plan to not talk to Gabby, his mate. I laughed so hard at that.
But the story is beautiful. It shows how the slow progression between Gabby and him in their relationship was difficult and heart breaking was for him. During many occasions he thought that she was giving up, and he was closing up even more, because he was afraid that he will start beginning her to stay with.
Even all the torment and situations, where he was so scared of losing Gabby, he is also really funny. He can laugh and be quite mean. Haha the scene with his first laundry? OMG…I cried so hard from laugh 😀
Loved this book.
Amazing 5 stars.
