Blog Tour Withering Hope by Layla Hagen

Withering Hope by Layla Hagen
Publication date: January 19th 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Aimee’s wedding is supposed to turn out perfect. Her dress, her fiancé and the location—the idyllic holiday ranch in Brazil—are perfect.
But all Aimee’s plans come crashing down when the private jet that’s taking her from the U.S. to the ranch—where her fiancé awaits her—defects mid-flight and the pilot is forced to perform an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is Aimee and Tristan’s—the pilot—only hope. A slim one that slowly withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, diseases. Beasts.
As Aimee and Tristan fight to find ways to survive, they grow closer. Together they discover that facing old, inner agonies carved by painful pasts takes just as much courage, if not even more, than facing the rainforest.
Despite her devotion to her fiancé, Aimee can’t hide her feelings for Tristan—the man for whom she’s slowly becoming everything. You can hide many things in the rainforest. But not lies. Or love.
Withering Hope is the story of a man who desperately needs forgiveness and the woman who brings him hope. It is a story in which hope births wings and blooms into a love that is as beautiful and intense as it is forbidden.

Review by Gia:
Wow, this book was an amazing read.  I read have read the Lost series by Layla Hagen and I expected Withering Hope to have a similar vibe to it but it didn't.  Layla wrote a great original story.   
Amie is at a great point in her life.  She's getting married Chris.   She seems to have everything planned out.    She is on your way to the wedding location in Brazil.  Tristan is her pilot.  He a little closed off and a bit of a mystery.   Chris has a private plane so it's just Tristan and Amie on board the plane.  The [lane chases in the middle of no where.  They have no communication to the outside world and flew of course before landing.
They have to survive out in the wilderness.    They have to battle the elements,  jaguars, and sickness.  They have to work together and form a bound.   They form feeling for each other.  Amie is an amazing character.  She has feels for Tristan but still feel that she has to stay devoted to Chris.  Tristan and Amie relationship slowly progresses for friendship to something more. 
Tristan was a little bit of a mystery at first.  I though maybe he was hiding that he was a criminal or something.  We get to find out what he's hiding through a little bit of his own POV.    The story is mainly told through Amie's  POV but we do get  a little of Tristan. 
I loved the ending.  Withering Hope tells the whole story of Tristan and Amie and doesn't leave hanging as to what happens to them.
This one is a must one click.

  1. Great review, Gia! Survivalist stories like this are my fav. I recently read On the Island that was a bit like this (though maybe less action packed) and really enjoyed it. I should give this one a try! :)
