I love antiheroes. Antiheroes that can redeem themselves so beautifully. This is the story of Ally and Axle. Tillie is writing the most amazing, emotional stories. I cried so much for them. And I will never forget this story.
Axle is Austin's older brother. With a criminal past, Axle is a lost, tortured soul, throwing himself into his art. His mother prayed for him to find the light, to see the good. And he did. In Ally. Ally will be his redemption. To guide him back to the light, to his brothers. Ally was so full of love and Axel deserved all of it. Axel is the perfect antihero. He was doing what he could to provide for his family. But life on the wrong side of the track is hard. With a sick mother, medical bills and two younger brothers to feed turned him to crime. Turning his family against him. His family didn't understand all he sacrifices he made for them. It was truly sad. But I understood them. I was also disappointed in him in Sweet Fall. He lost himself. His soul became dark. And I love how Ally could bring him back. But he was never really gone. He just lost himself along the way. But the loving son, the older brother was still there. He still loves his brothers. And his Ally. He expresses his deep pain and sorrow through his art. Ally sees that he doesn't feel worthy of happiness. She understand his work, his art. And she will fight for him.
Ally loved her art with all her heart. She is so passionate about her work. She loved his art. She was always supportive of him. Protected him. I was so sad for him. He was so tortured and poured his pain in his sculptures. He felt that he didn't deserve anything good. But Ally did. She gave his soul peace. And in return, Axel gave her all his heart. He loved her with his soul. Even knowing his past, I never doubted that he was a good man trying to fix his past mistakes. She gave him hope and light in an empty, dark world.
“From the first time I ever saw your angel sculpture, it seared my heart… I always knew if I could meet you in the flesh, your soul would do the same.”
This story was incredible. I feel so much emotions right now. It was amazing. And if you loved the previous books in this series, you will LOVE this beautiful story about forgivness, courage and soul shattering love.
Tillie Cole has the ability to turn me into a sobbing, emotional mess with just a few sentences. I have adored every book in the Sweet Home series and become deeply invested in each of the characters. Austin and Lexi’s story in Sweet Fall, which must be read before Sweet Hope, broke my heart, so I was steeling myself for what was to come with Ally’s book. I knew I would cry, but I had absolutely no idea how this story would move me. Ally and Elpidio’s journey was an amazingly beautiful, gut-wrenching, and touching experience that blew me away.
Sweet Hope brings Ally to Seattle to curate an exhibition for the elusive sculptor Elpidio. While she is excited for this new career opportunity and to be closer to her friends, she is lonely. Ally never expects the connection she feels when she meets the secretive and tortured sculptor. Elpidio is a broken soul who expresses his deep pain and sorrow through his art. He doesn’t believe he is worthy of even an ounce of happiness, but he can’t deny the relief and comfort that comes with Ally’s true understanding of him and his work.
Ally was hands down my favorite heroine of this series. I was in awe of her passion for her job and the way she internalized the beauty and depth of every piece of art. Elpidio’s work came to life for me through her eyes. Just like with her career, Ally gave her entire heart and soul to Elpidio once she found herself falling for him. Her compassion and belief in him were inspiring. She was truly the light to his dark, and she never once wavered in her love and support of him. Ally was strong, loyal, and above all else had the courage to follow her heart.
I have quite possibly never come across a hero as tortured as Elpidio. He was a man tormented by his sorrow. The way he took his pain and harnessed it into his sculptures was both devastating and powerful. Haunted by the demons of his past and what his actions had done to his family, Elpidio felt he deserved nothing good, especially not the love of a woman like Ally. She understood him in a way no one else did, though, and her acceptance of him soothed his soul. He clearly worshipped her, and their passionate bond ran deep despite Elpidio’s lack of self-worth.
Elpidio’s true identity was purposefully left a mystery for the reader to discover, and I have to say that I loved that aspect. I found myself eagerly awaiting the reveal and when it came I couldn’t wait to see how his story would unfold. The emotions in this story radiated off the pages. Elpidio’s grief was heart-breaking. While I had a deep respect for how he took full responsibility for his actions, the truth was that he did everything for those he loved. He was drowning in so much self-loathing that I found myself wanting to curl up in a ball and cry for him.
I loved watching how vulnerable Elpidio was with Ally and his family. Despite the mistakes of his past, I never once doubted that he was a good man who deserved happiness and a future. The way Ally loved him and fought for him in the face of all obstacles was beautiful. She believed in him when he couldn’t. Ally gave Elpidio hope when he had none. I don’t think I could have possibly loved her more than I did. It was immensely gratifying to watch Elpidio leave the shadows of his tragic past and attempt to forge a new life.
Sweet Hope stole my heart, plain and simple. Ally and Elpidio’s story was tumultuous and difficult to read at times, but it was truly an incredible tale of hope, love, and forgiveness. It was wonderful to spend time with the rest of the characters in this series and see them living their happily ever afters. I am sad to see this series come to an end, but Tillie Cole did a phenomenal job of wrapping it up in a powerful and moving way. Her books, full of gorgeous and heartfelt writing, come with my highest recommendation. Sweet Hope is most certainly no exception.

Sweet Hope is a brilliantly written story with characters that tug on your heart.
Guilt, second chances, forgiveness, redemption, new beginnings, Axel is a tortured soul and his journey captivated me and poked at my emotions. Axel made me laugh, cry and feel his pain.
Axel is a guy who from a very young age became his brothers keepers, everything he did was for his family, his brothers Austin and Levi, even when I finished this book despite his mistakes, his crimes to survive, his involvement in street gangs I was just in awe of this man who was selfless to the end.
Ally came into his life life an Angel to guide him in his new life, his fresh start, his future and it was a moving and torturous, beautiful love story.
I listened to this book in audio which was brilliantly narrated, the narrator really made the book come more to life like I was right there with the characters.
Recommended tortured hero romance.
Im not sure reading these books one after each other was a good idea im emotionally drained but desperate to read more!
So this story is set around Ally Prince who is Rome's cousin... she lands her dream job as a Museum Curator for an artist she could only dream of meeting... but then an unexpected person from the groups past returns and the story is just one big emotion after that!
Im not giving away who this person is but lets just say it sets the story straight about him and makes you feel so bad for judging him badly before.
Told in dual POV makes you get a true in sight into both characters mind body and soul. Love getting updates on the rest of the gang too.
Tillie Cole beyond smashed it with this book in my opinion.
This book came with one hell of a twist that I did not see coming and I loved every second of it.
This sweet series seems to be getting a little less sweet and a lot more damaged though. Yet all these men are in so much pain from their past, it breaks your heart.
Another successful book in this series.
I jumped straight onto this book immediately after reading the first three in the series and had NO CLUE who Ally’s other-half was going to be and when I worked it out (before the ‘reveal’) I was all ‘no way! It can’t be!’ BUT IT WAS!
And that’s all I can say without spoiling the book so… Moving on.
The book is duel POV, which was awesome. It was set five years after Sweet Fall, which was doubly awesome as it provides more of Rome, Molly, Austin, Lexi and co. but fills in time between where their books ended and the epilogues pick up.
The book is different from the others in that it’s set outside of college, obviously being five years after the others, and therefore has a more mature feel.
The relationship between Ally and her artist is beautiful! Oh… The feels! Angst feels. Sweet feels. Sexy feels… The pull between them is magnetic and gave me major heart palpitations!
It is such a gorgeous story! Full of hurt, pain, love and redemption. Of healing. Of second chances.
Seriously, all the freakin’ feels!
And it’s so well written… I could so clearly see everything in my mind’s eye. The vision of Ally’s sculpture lit in lavender, the smell of jasmine and the sound of that beautiful piece of music (that I looked up on youtube) still linger within me.
Simply. Stunning. Definitely a must read!
Axel' s story was really heartbreaking and it is true we are quick to jump to conclusions before we really know a person, we judge on looks alone and I'm just as guilty of this, and everyone deserves a second chance.
On his early release from prison Axel tries to reconnect with his brothers without much success, but while he was in prison his talent for art had been nurtured and he had become a successful reclusive artist (some of this I think must be taken with a pinch of salt). Ally who is Rome Prince's cousin is tasked to curate the exhibition of his work. The couple meet and connect before either of them realize who each other are. The story twists and turns and we learn the reasons behind what Axel became and why he did what he did. I actually ended up feeling that Axel was the strongest male lead of this series. After near tragedy hope springs eternal for poor Axel and his famillo.
A wonderful end to this lovely series and I so highly recommend all four books. I love it when we have a great epilogue and all the ends are neatly tied up, a must-have for me. Tillie Cole is becoming a one click for me very well done.
