Unveiling Hope (Unveiling #5) by Jeannine Allison – My Review (ARC)



Unveiling Hope is a STANDALONE romance. You don’t have to read any other books in the series to enjoy it 🙂
Samantha is aimless. A college dropout who’s just been kicked out of her house, she’s searching for herself. But she never thought she’d find herself moving into the apartment of the man she’s spent the last year trying to forget.
Derek has secrets. An underground fighter who acts first and thinks later, he’s determined to keep that part of his life hidden. But when he’s forced to offer Sam—the girl he can’t stop thinking about—a place to live, his carefully constructed lies unravel.
Everything is stacked against them. Yet neither can walk away.
She’s seven years younger.
She’s his best friend’s little sister.
She has a boyfriend.
There are lines you don’t cross… and they’re about to obliterate them.

My Review

***4.75 Stars***

*ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

So, I’ve been a Jeannine Allison fan for quite a while now but I have to honestly say this is her best work to date.

Sam and Derek stole my heart! This book is technically part of a series but CAN be read as a standalone but if you have kept up with the series you’ll know that this is a slow-burn, friends-to-lovers romance. Sam and Derek have waited so long for their romance and it was absolutely worth the wait!!

I really loved both of these characters. Sam is a sweetheart and what might seem like her weaknesses are actually her biggest strengths. I admired her so much. It took her a while to finally stand up for whatshe wanted but once she did, she made no apologies for how she chose to live her life.

I adored Derek!! He actually respected Sam which, unfortunately, is sometimes hard to find in this genre. Derek had just the right amount of alpha-male without him coming across as a misogynistic caveman. Oh, and their sex scenes were STEAMY!!! 😉

I loved this book so much and I really don’t want to give too much away!!! It’s definitely my favorite Jeannine Allison novel so far! Novels like this are why I love reading romance. DO NOT miss out on this outstanding read!
