Withering Hope by Layla Hagen ~ Review

Withering Hope

Withering Hope by Layla Hagen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So good!!! Gosh what an ending. I still have tears in my eyes.

I loved Withering Hope, it was so full of action, drama, adventure and romance. From start to finish this book had me hooked. It kind of reminded me of another favorite books of mine, On the Island but with a lot more mishaps.

Aimee is about a week away from marrying the man she has known all her life and has loved for most of it. In a last minute decision Aimee decide to take her fiancĂ© private plane to Brazil, where the wedding will be held to help with last minute plans. Unfortunately, Aimee and pilot Tristian never make it, the plane goes down somewhere in the middle of the Amazon rain forest. With nothing but rainforest around for miles and miles, Aimee and Tristian try to survive while hoping to be rescued. Together they face all sorts of dangers in the Amazon, from animals, insects, lack of food and water to feelings for each other that they both believe they shouldn’t be feeling.

With all the dangers and suspense, I had a hard time putting the book down. Seriously, this book was good! For anyone looking for a break from some of the NA romances out there this is it. No college kids with horrible pasts, just two people trying to survive together. I recommend this to everyone.
