Blog Tour + Review: The Son & his Hope by Pepper Winters

The Son and His Hope, a sweeping standalone from New York Times Bestselling author Pepper Winters.

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”

The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.

I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

"I see your fear. I see your anger. I see how you want to run but don't. I see you love but wish you didn't. I see how deeply you feel, Jacob, all the while begging you were heartless."

I just love that Pepper takes the time to tell a story regardless of how long it will be. I am usually not that big of a fan of long books, but if the plot and characters are intriguing enough I will wish it didn't end at all. Pepper Winters is an author who really knows how to engage and entices a reader to keep on reading. I especially am a big fan of characters who knew each other from childhood to grow up and fall in love. Just like with his parents, Ren and Della, Jacob's life isn't easy as well. He grew up in a loving environment with the best people around him, but he learned about heartbreak pretty early on. This has impacted him so much that he doesn't let anyone come close to him.

"A single night is nothing. You're worth a millennium of nights."

However, there is this stubborn and headstrong girl, Hope, who will do anything to break down his walls. She really has the patience of a saint, because Jacob definitely wasn't the easiest person to deal with. But there is just something she sees in him, and she will not give up until he sees it as well. Honestly, my heart broke when I saw how Jacob treated the people closest to him. I got mad at him many times, and I just wanted him to snap out of it. But I realized further down the story that he really couldn't help himself. I was just glad that Hope didn't give up on him and stood by him during his most difficult times, even though he didn't want her around.

"Her vulnerability almost ruined me. Her love so pure. Her care so bright. It closed a coffin around my already dead soul and threw away the key."

I loved being reunited with characters from the Ribbon Duet, even though it was very bittersweet at times. This book had me on the edge of my seat at times. The heartbreak resulted in me crying my eyes out. I was on an emotional roller coaster, and I didn't know how it would end. It was a wild ride. I cried, laughed, swooned, smiled, got angry and sad while reading this book. I was happy that the author told Hope and Jacob's story regardless how heartbreaking it was sometimes. I absolutely Pepper's writing style and amazing story-telling abilities. It really grabbed and didn't let go of me until the end.
