REVIEW: Hopechest by Kailee Reese Samuels


Finally the boy becomes a man in the fourth of this addictive series…gone is the submissive who is searching for his true self and in his place stands the dominant… Sal and Kaci have their story told in this book and there has seldom been a more conflicting emotional relationship than the one they are embarked upon..

Once again the author has created an enthralling read..the characters continue to grow and develop and at the heart is Kaci so unselfish and kind and Sal who faces so much sadness and loss…

I looked up the definition of a hope chest and realised immediately how perfect the title is for this final story…Sal has experienced so much over the course of the series..each one of the lessons he has learned and his stolen hopes, dreams, losses and disappointments are all being packed neatly away to be uncovered and utilised at a later time when they will provide him with the emotional strength to become something better, more worthy and prepared in the future.

This compelling story ends with Sal finally ready to take on his true mantle in Juliet….the journey is a harsh one but there is also an unspoken assurance that Sal has conquered so much, experienced so much that no matter what the future holds he has the capacity to find a way…This book was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads.
