A long time ago, Joel Wentworth told me he’d love me for infinity . . . and I can’t give up hope that it might have been true.
How long does it take to get over your first love?
Eight years should be long enough. My mind knows that, but there’s no convincing my heart.
Guys like Joel weren't supposed to fall for girls like me. He had his pick of women at University, but somehow the laws of nature were defied and we fell crazy in love.
After graduation, Joel left to pursue his career in New York. He wanted me to go with him but my life was in London.
We broke up and my heart split in two.
I haven’t seen or spoken to him since he left.
If only I’d known that I’d love him this long, this painfully, this desperately. I might have said yes all those years ago. He might have been mine all this time in between.
Now, he’s moving back to London and I need to get over him before he gets over here.
But how do I forget someone who gave me so much to remember?

A SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE.
Set in London with British characters. Joel Wentworth is the hot sexy guy in college. Ava Elliot is a shy girl, lacks confidence and sees Joel as out of her league.
When Joel becomes interested in Ava and they become study partners Ava struggles with seeing herself as worthy of Joel and doesn't share their relationship with her friends.
Joel and Ava live in a bubble, they meet daily in the library, study, they have hot passionate sex, they share thoughts and words of love and forever but Ava lacks confidence and in the end that confidence ends their relationship.
Joel and Ava have chemistry and are destined to be together, Hopful is a story of regrets, mistakes and maturity.
Joel and Ava are part of a close knit group of friends so despite there growing love for one-another they keep it a secret. Joel would shout it from the roof tops but Ava wants to keep it between them, have their own little bubble with no-one making judgement.
"A long time ago, Joel Wentworth told me he’d love me for infinity . . . and I can’t give up hope that it might have been true".
Joel eventually left for New York and Ava stayed not able to stand up for what she feels or what she believes in.
8 years later Joel returns and Ava has never got over him and it's time to prove she belongs to him and has always belonged to him and time to come clean to her friends that the reason why she has never dated is because there has only ever been one guy for her.....Joel
The plot goes from past to present. The past shares how Joel and Ava meet, their journey to love, the encounters while studying, the secret meetings, the hot passionate sex, rotating from one chapter in the past then going to to the present.
The Present plot is Ava's apprehension of Joels return and her thoughts of would he hate me for not leaving with him, would he still love me?, is he married?
Ava still has the same friends from college and they all live in London, so meeting Joel is inevitable or maybe destiny?.
I loved this group of friends with the British banter, I listened this on audio and it had that Bridgette Jones feel. You could picture them all sat in a pub, laughing and joking taking the piss out of one another.
Hopful is a hot steamy read with a story that does actually give you hope for the characters.
A great story told in Ava's pov, leads to hea with no cheating, angst or drama. A feel good read with plenty hot scenes.
