Withering Hope by 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.

Note: This novel is recommended for ages 18+ due to sexual content and mature themes.

MUJDE'S REVIEW
Rating ★★★★★


This is the first time that i read a book by Layla Hagen. And i absolutely loved it. I'm really glad that I met a book beyond the top of my expectations. Oh, Tristan !!! Alongside the book, created characters are also perfect. 

The story begins with Aimee's flight to Brazil to marry her childhood friend. But it does not succeed. Tristan is the private jet’s pilot that Aimee is traveling in. Aircraft is falling, and there’s no way they can return soon. No phone, no communication tools. They will have to hold on to each other to overcome the danger, fear, hunger and disease.

At first chapters I loved the way Aimee and Tristan speaks. Tristan is a talented man, and to protect the woman he stranded with he is doing all that he can. Even though those who judge by the cover think the book is a love story, actually it is a story of hope. This is a story that tells us of forgiveness and that you can find the true love in the least expected time and least expected place. Sweet and pure. While i was reading, i turned some pages with a smile on my face and some with sadness.The important thing for me was to find the reflected emotions deep within my heart while i was reading. And it became true in time with the pure emotions Aimee and Tristan felt to each other.

My heart crushed while i was reading it. I felt the passion, the love, and the tears. It’s easy to read and you can’t believe how the pages goes by. I don’t want to give it all away and ruin it with all the details for the people who didn’t read it yet. I feel very lucky that i read this book. And I will recommend it to all my friends around.

Wow, what an ending! Damn !!! I couldn’t come to myself for a while after i finished it. I think this book should take hundreds of stars, certainly not a book to fit five stars.

Layla Hagen !!! You are wonderful. I want to thank you for this beautiful story. I'm happy to read the book. I hope that the inspiration never ends!

SOLDURAN UMUT


Bu benim ilk defa Layla Hagen kitabı okuyuşum. Ve kesinlikle çok sevdim. Beklentimin çok üstünde bir kitapla karşılaştığım için gerçekten çok mutluyum. Ah, Tristan!!! Bu kitap kadar yaratılan karakterler de çok mükemmel.

Hikaye Aimee'nin çocukluk arkadaşıyla evlenmesi için Brezilyaya uçmasıyla başlıyor. Fakat başarılı olamıyor. Aimee'nin bulunduğu özel jeti kullanan pilot Tristan. Uçak düşüyor, ve kısa süre içerisinde geri dönmelerinin bir yolu yok. Telefon yok, hiçbir iletişim aracı yok. Açlık, hastalık, tehlike ve korkuyu atlatmak için sadece birbirlerine tutunmak zorunda kalacaklardır.

İlk bölümlerde Aimee ve Tristan'ın konuşma tarzlarına bayıldım. Tristan yetenekli bir adam, ve birlikte mahsur kaldığı kadını korumak için elinden gelen tüm çabayı gösteriyor. Okuyacak olanlar özellikle kapağına bakıp bunu bir aşk hikayesi olarak görseler de, bu aslında umut ile ilgili bir hikaye. Bu affetmenin ve ummadığınız bir anda ve ummadığınız bir yerde gerçek aşkı da bulabileceğinizi anlatan bir hikaye. Tatlı ve saf. Kitabı okurken bazı sayfaları yüzümde bir gülümsemeyle, bazı sayfaları da hüzünle çevirdim. 

Benim için önemli olan okurken yansıtılan duyguların direkt kalbime hükmetmesiydi. 

Aimee ve Tristan'ın zamanla birbirlerine hissettikleri bu saf duygular sayesinde bu da gerçek oldu. 

Ben bu kitabı okurken kalbim altüst oldu. Tutkuyu, aşkı, ve gözyaşını hissettim. Okunması kolay ve sayfaların nasıl ilerlediğini fark etmiyorsunuz. Çok detaylı anlatıp bu kitabı henüz okumayanlar için ayrıntıları yazmak istemiyorum. Bu kitabı okuduğum için kendimi çok şanslı hissediyorum. Ve çevremdeki tüm arkadaşlarıma bu hikayeyi okumaları için tavsiye edeceğim.
Vay canına, o nasıl bir sondur öyle. Kahretsin!!! Kitabı bitirdikten sonra; bir süre kendime gelemedim. Bence bu kitap yüzlerce yıldız almalı, kesinlikle beş yıldıza sığacak bir kitap değil. 

Layla Hagen!!! Sen harikasın. Bu güzel hikaye için sana çok teşekkür ediyorum. Kitabını okuduğum için mutluyum. Dilerim ki, ilhamın hiç bitmesin!
