Kaci agreed to the most important question of her life.
And then she had her fiancé taken hostage.
He played her game and trained for battle.
And now he is completely unprepared to lose.
Loving her once, Sal fell for her eccentric, wild pixie. She used her abilities—aiming her target to get revenge—but Kaci stumbled into a dangerous love, putting Sal through a gut-wrenching hell.
Can Sal ever forgive her sins of the past?
With the questions on the table, one inescapable truth looms before their relationship. His calculating mind and intimidating body built for the greater good, leaving Sal changed. No longer the curious submissive boy of the past, his new outlook is one of defiance, kink, and control.
Will Kaci embrace the changes – or– is the end closer than she ever imagined?
There is nothing he can do—
No praying on his knees for forgiveness
No bargaining with the devil to save their relationship
In this heartbreaking battle, Sal will lose.
In the fourth and final book of The Story of Salvatore, Sal Raniero begs to reverse the clock as reality leaks into his perfect bubble. With his love of the fetish world shoved to the backburner, he learns not only the meaning of love, but how precious time is.
The war begins when Sal rages into Sugargrove—
Nothing safe from his wrath
Nothing sacred in his path
…including the Hope he longed to keep.
With each new book of the Juliet universe, I’m more and more impressed by Kailee Reese Samuels’ talent. Hopechest reaches a whole new level of intricacy, the depth of the plot, and the connections between the characters utterly mesmerized me. I’m warning you, Kailee’s universe is seriously addicting and even a little obsessing! Truths hide new lies and revelations only bring out more questions. KRS is brilliant, she plays with her readers’ minds, chances are you won’t know what’s going to hit you until it’s too late!
Add to that amazing sensation, endearing characters whose feelings, emotions, reactions are vibrant and painfully realistic. The more I read about them, the more I feel for them. Sal’s loneliness seized my heart throughout the story. Although surrounded by friends, his need to be loved, to find love was heartbreaking.
Stuck between his submission and his more and more pronounciated dominance, Sal blurred the boundaries; the sensuality and erotism in this book, the respect and empathy were raw and beautiful. Clearly, the new Sal, with all his scars and his new found maturity, is magnificent.
Hopechest is a book I would have devoured but ended up savoring every word, every tear and every fun moment.
