Blog Tour: Withering Hope

Title: Withering Hope 
Author:Layla Hagen 
Publication date: January 19th 2015 
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance 
Synopsis: *This will be a STANDALONE 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.

My Review:

I loved this book! It made me cry, fall in love, feel hope and lots of mixed feelings at the same time. I was hooked from the very beginning because I haven´t read this kind of story in a setting so wild and dangerous.
The characters are believable, powerful and real. I felt what they felt and it made me rethink some prestablished ideas around this kind of survival stories. You can see clearly that the author has done her research of the setting and of the things needed in this kind of situation. It was a very detailed tale of hope and love when everything seems to fade.
There were too many twists in the story that I was attached to my kindle for 2 days in a row, I literally couldn´t put it down. 
The writing of the author is wonderful and it grabs the reader´s attention right from the very beginning till the end. 
I cried a lot in this book, the ending was so beautiful and heartbreaking at the same time!
I would love to read a companion novel about Chris´story, because I think he deserves it.

My name is Layla Hagen and I am a New Adult Contemporary Romance author.
I fell in love with books when I was nine years old, and my love affair with stories continues even now, many years later.
I write romantic stories and can’t wait to share them with the world.
And I drink coffee. Lots of it, in case the photo didn’t make it obvious enough
