Withering Hope

Withering Hope by Layla Hagen Book Summary


En route to a tropical paradise, overworked and dedicated Aimee Myller is ready to begin her new life. But when the plane defects, the pilot, sexy Tristan Bress, needs to make an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is their only hope. A slim one that withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, disease, and fangs of beasts.

Forced to fend for themselves, Tristan and Aimee begin to forage for food and shelter. As they fight for survival, they grow closer. Despite knowing he's off limits, Aimee can't deny her attraction to Tristan. 

Tristan knows Aimee is the one woman he can't have. But how can he fight love when she's slowly becoming everything to him? 

*This read is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.*

- True Love ❤️5 star

It was a great book, I did not expect the sad ending, this was a true everlasting love story!

- Amazing!5 star

Probably one of the best books I have read in an extremely long time. I had such a hard time putting it down and the ending left me in tears!

- Should be a movie!5 star

This has a fast paced, original storyline. I couldn’t put it down. The characters are complex and realistic. That combined with the unusual circumstances they are put in, make for a great read!

- Different but raw and beautiful5 star

A beautiful story about survival and deep love - not the common theme of reunions or the tough guy saving the damsel in distress although Tristan does save Aimee and himself with his military and survival training. Read it - it touched me.

- Heart Warming and Heart Breaking5 star

I’ve never cried so long after reading a novel than I did this one. They were tears of joy and tears of sadness, but none the less, it was a very special book.

- Sad book5 star

It’s been a while since a book made me teary eyed. I felt the book was slow to start but it picked up. I found myself turning the pages, and I wanted to know that these 2 poor souls would be ok. It does have a happy ending of some sorts, but it reminded me of the notebook. I am not a fan of sad sappy stories. I wouldn’t read the book again, but it was a good book to pass away a few hours.

- Withering Hope5 star

First book by this author and loved it. Very interesting book that made me laugh and cry.

- Greatest book I have read in a long time5 star

WOW!!! I have to put this book in the list of my all-time favorite’s.

Such a beautiful book, finished it in 2 sittings. It will make you laugh and cry and stay up way too late to finish reading it. I literally never write reviews, but this 100% deserved 5 stars.

- Great book5 star

The ending was so sad!

- Most beautiful peace of literature I’ve ever read5 star

It had a very compelling story and by the end of the book I felt a thought I was living through al of their giggles with them. I was captivated till he feet end and I don’t think I have ever red something that moved me so much in my life.

- Loved it!5 star

I must confess, at the beginning I wasn't sure I would be able to look pass the whole cheating thing, but you know what? The book is beautiful anyways. It was nicely written and Aimme and Tristan's romance had me sighing at every page turned. Great work!

- Beautiful5 star

An exceptionally beautiful read.

- I really liked it!4 star

This book is a very good read, it offers more than most romance novels tend to these days. Great characters, and the story line itself really is great. I saw not ready for this book to end!

- Worth Reading4 star

This story was very sweet and I couldn’t put it down. Completely worth your time to read it.

- Enjoyed this book immensely5 star

Great story, wonderfully written, and different then so many others that I have read:

- Amazing!5 star

This is one of the best romance books I’ve ever read. Very different from your average romance book. Could not put it down!

- Insanely addictive!5 star

I never go into a book expecting to be yanked into the story and not released. I read a lot of books and most often I am either not interested in the story, or not a fan of the writers prose. This was not the case at all. I stayed up all night to finish this book. I couldn’t put it down. The ending had me in tears. Beautifully written. Will be reading again!

- Wow5 star

Wow. Just wow. Worth every moment to read.

- Don't waste your time1 star

The leads in this book have absolutely no chemistry and the tacked on cheesy epilogue is just the garbage icing in this really terrible book.

- 👍5 star

Amazing book!!! I would definitely recommend it. This book is well written, with an incredible story line and well defined characters that u'll love. Don't miss out.

- Yea, I loved it.5 star

This book just felt right. Great love story of two people facing incredible, frightening odds together. Seems crazy that the story is so solid with very little dialogue outside Aimee and Tristan. Yea, I loved it.

- wow5 star

My Review 5 stars. An intense plot, lovable characters. Wow. This story was so suspenseful. I loved it. A plane carrying a bride to her wedding goes down in the middle of the Amazon. The plane doesn't have many supplies, so the duo has to find ways to survive until they are found. At every page turn, a new challenge arises making you wonder if they will come out alive. Aimee is admirably strong and resilient. Even when she breaks down and cries, you feel her pain, and she doesn't really come off as annoyingly whiny or prissy (this is good, it made me continue to like her). Tristan, at first is the strong, silent type, but as he opens up, you fall in love with him and admire all that he has survived. The running theme of hope makes you think everything is going to end up okay, but then something happens to make it go away. You will turn the pages faster just to see if they survive long enough to be rescued. And the ending/ epilogue was the perfect ending to the story. I read so many romances that are cookie-cutter: guy meets girl, they can't stand each other, end up falling for each other, resist, and eventually give in... So I was quite surprised and glad that this story didn't follow that formula. I'd have to say, if I wanted anything changed about the story, I would have liked to have seen the fiance's point of view... when the plane went missing, when they set out on the search. Although on the other hand, It added to the suspense of "was anyone even looking for them" so I understand it not being there. I would call this a "must read" for romantic suspense fans, romance lovers who are not looking for something so cookie-cutter as some books may be, and anyone looking to go on an adventure. This was not my first time reading this author, and it definitely won't be the last. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

- I couldn't put it down!!!5 star

I couldn't put it down!!! This story was one heck of an adventure. It starts with a plane crash in the middle of the Amazon rainforest and develops into a very touching love story. Because I'm sort of a masochist, I love a tortured hero, and Tristan was definitely that. He was a direct contrast to Aimee's seemingly un-tortured existence. However, while being trapped together, they find that they share more similarities than they thought. I enjoyed reading how their relationship changed over time, and the book was full of those heart-wrenching moments, especially the latter part of the book. By the time the second epilogue rolled around, I was in tears. All in all, this was a well-written, unique story with a little bit of action, adventure, suspense, and a lot of love! I would absolutely read more books by Layla Hagen! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

- 5-sobbing-and-captivating-stars!!5 star

What a beautifully written story! I love how the author described the scenes, the emotion and the adventures they shared. I started crying at the last few chapters but the epilogue, it had me sobbing so hard. What an excellent journey with Aimee and Tristan. I love this book!!!

- Tantalizing read, one that will keep you glued to each page!5 star

What started innocently became something more. I love how building up to what will inevitably be a choice. A choice of what? Two people thrown together in a rainforest, survival kicks in. Now I was in awe of the many splendor of the rainforest. The only way I could explain it, it was due to the fact the author's narrative description. I felt the humidity, the over grown roots, or the cold slimy oops, SNAKE! No toilet? Trees latch themselves onto other trees suffocating darkness, now picture that in your mind. Spears and bows, arrows to get food? Predators? Spider and their deadly bite. Life or death scenerio in the forest to seek out the andiroba tree. Making a torch with animal fat and piece of fabric. Guess what fabric they used? Physical changes because of their daily movements in the rainforest. Do you think their changes were good or bad? Tristan the pilot aka chauffeur and Aimee, a lawyer whose nuptial is about to happen. How do they connect? Read the book to find that connection. There's more to this story like how Aimee's fiance is someone who she grew up with as a child and their parents were just as close. Oh by the way, Chris is stinking R-I-C-H!!! Okay addiction, not drugs or anything resembling it but an addiction to someone from a far, unreachable, hands off. This story kept moving as a constant never dulling my mind, just pure enjoyment. What crept along slowly just building a basis of consciousness between two people add trampling through the jungles, surviving the pitfalls and staving off the pull towards each other, it was exhausting. Not bad exhausting, exhilarating, invigorating, yes more like invigorating. Up and down and spiraling sideways, my emotions while reading this story. The characters were few but made this story exciting, why? The mystery of it that's why. I was rooting for how the story ended and it is classic. I drop a tear here and there as the story made it's way to the end. Wonderfully written which I admire about Ms. Hagen's books, never disappoints. She managed to put something so classic yet modernized it with an awe-inspiring read. I received an ARC digital copy, and I thank you. Thank you, Darlene (p.s. I found a way to put this review on IBOOK ITune, I am persistent :D)

- Withering Hope by Layla Hagen5 star

Withering Hope is a devastatingly exquisite and magnificently incredible story of a quiet, hidden love that is finally allowed to spread its wings and fly. Even though this love wasn’t spoken, seen, or shared, it was determined to let its light of warmth, hope, and encouragement shine onto the one whose heart it longed to consume. Little by little, the bricks and stones keeping it out were whittled away, and at its first opportunity, it rushed in and swooped the object of its affection off her feet and straight into the arms of a love she never knew even existed. The next step is such an easy one when we are cradled in a world that nurtures such a love, but when the real world comes crashing down around us, the true impact of that love can either lift us to the heights of Heaven or send us crashing to the depths of Hell. Amiee is happy with her life. She is a successful lawyer with a promising career, surrounded by loving friends, and planning on marrying her best friend. Unknown to her, fate is about to turn her world upside down in more ways than she can ever imagine, and all she can do is tag along for the ride. Tristan works as a driver and pilot for Amiee’s fiancé Chris. He also works as Amiee’s driver when the need arises. His past is dark and chock full of secrets that he would love to forget or even better permanently erase, but he knows that’s now how it works. While working for Amiee, he finds himself inexplicably drawn to her even though he knows she is strictly off limits. His heart just won’t let her go, and so he falls in love with her in silence. The upcoming wedding of Amiee and Chris is quickly approaching, and Amiee asks Tristan to fly her to Brazil where the wedding will take place. Fate can sometimes be painfully cruel or, if we are lucky, beautifully kind, but either way, its methods are usually unconventional and permission is never required or even asked. Needless to say, this flight has life changing implications that are far-reaching and give new meaning to the phrase “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry”. Utterly mind-blowing and completely brilliant! These were my first thoughts whenever I finished reading this amazing story of finding a soul changing love in the midst of chaos and fear. My heart hurt as I found out more and more about Amiee. Seemingly happy, she was in fact quite the opposite. She just didn’t see it until Tristan held a mirror up to her heart. As she grappled to come to terms with this revelation, she began to see Tristan with a different set of eyes. He was no longer just her driver and pilot, he was a man full of mystery, gentleness, and confidence. Through their struggles, he never looked down on her, but admired her more and more for her inner strength and longed to revive the part of her heart that he saw in pain and ruins. She, in turn, longed to unravel his past and in so doing, her kind soul began to heal him one encouraging word at a time. They were so perfect for each other, and it was only their current circumstances that allowed them to discover the missing piece of their soul in the other. To experience and feel that kind of completeness must be absolute Heaven and the most worthy cause to fight for. Layla Hagen is most definitely a master at pulling you mind, heart, and soul into a story and then just when you think you know what’s going on, she slowly and excruciatingly pulls back the vale to reveal a life-altering tapestry whose beauty knocks the wind from your lungs, whose light blinds you instantly, and whose revelation destroys and then rebuilds you until you no longer recognize who is looking back at you in the mirror. Mere words cannot express the magnificence and brilliance of this truly unforgettable journey that will completely wreck your heart and then quietly and painstakingly remake it into a beautiful work of art. This book is by far the best that I have read this year, and I have a feeling that it will remain at the top. This is not your average romance book. It far surpasses the romance genre and slowly wanders into the truly life changing arena.
