Blog Tour for Hopeful by Louise Bay

Guys like Joel Wentworth weren't meant 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. And for
a short time I thought it would be for infinity.
On July 10, 2006, straight after graduation, Joel left for New York and despite him wanting me to go
with him, I refused, unwilling to disappoint my parents and risk the judgment of my friends. I never
saw 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 Quotations

“Nothing worth having comes easy, Ava.” – Joel Wentworth
“You taste even better than I imagined.” – Joel Wentworth
All I wanted in that moment was Joel to see inside me, see how much I needed him. I couldn’t tell
him, but I needed him to know.
Just when I thought I had nothing to lose, I found out there was further to fall.
“I’ve been having very inappropriate thoughts about you, Ava Elliot” – Joel Wentworth
“Ava? You said something about me touching you. All over. Is that what you said?” – Joel Wentworth
“It’s so good to have you here.” His kisses trailed down my neck.
“In my town,” he kissed over my collarbone.
“In my bed,” he kissed between my breasts.
“In my heart.”
“I thought I locked away in my memory your face, your sounds when you came, but that was better
than I remembered,” – Joel Wentworth
“And my mouth, where do you want that? Do you want me to kiss you everywhere?” – Joel

Review by Tabitha:
This is the first book I have ever read by this author, but I must say I really enjoyed it. I loved that I was laughing in one minute and then crying in the next. I felt every emotion like I was there with all the characters. Joel and Ava have a really sweet, but secret love story. I must say I fell in love with Joel from the get go and there were lots of times I just wanted to strangle Ava and other times I totally related to her and how she felt and the reasons she did the things she did. The only reason I didn't give it a five star is because I, personally, don't like the way it jumps from past to present. It's not a huge negative just for me I don't love the back and forth. Otherwise, this is a fantastic read and totally worth reading!! 4.5 Star rating for me!!

Louise Bay Bio
Ruined by romantic mini-series of the 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.
My first novel Faithful was released in April 2014 and Hopeful is released July 15 2014. Both are
stand-alone books. (@louisesbay)
