Clay is a man of few human talents. As a wolf, he hunts well and can fight off a grizzly twice his size, but has no aspirations. The idea of a Mate isn't something he has ever seriously entertained. Dreamed about, maybe, but he knows the chances are nearly non-existent. Then he meets Gabby, a human girl. She hates him at first sight, yet he can't let her go. Who he was is ...more

Clay's Hope is a retelling of Hope(less) from Clay's perspective. I was beyond excited for this book because Clay is my favorite leading man in the JO6 Series. Since he doesn't talk until the very end of the book, we have been left to wonder what was going on in that quiet gorgeous head of his.......until now. If you thought you you couldn't love Clay anymore you are sadly mistaken! This book will leave you having nonfictional love for a fictional character. I thought I had a fair idea of the ma ...more

This was fun and dull at the same time. Fun because we got Clay's POV and Dull because it was same story as Hopeless. Nothing new or exiting or another adventure of his own happened. Okay some of things happened but it wasn't completely new or wasn't something you can't guess by reading Hopeless.

I wanted to understand why Clay didn't speak to Gabby when I read Hopeless and I though it'd have been better explained in this one, but I still can't see the point -

If I'd spoken, even just one word

I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first book in the companion series that accompanies The Judgement of The Six series. I loved reading in Hope(less) how Gabby fell in love with Clay. What I learned from reading Clay's Hope is how difficult, and heart wrenching this entire affair was for Clay. It is such an amazing love story. Clay put up with a lot because he knew he belonged with Gabby forever!! This is a must read!

Clay's Hope is a companion novel that was supposed to be a novella to Hope(less) and usually, I might pick these up after reading the entire main series if I ever get around to it. Commonly they're well, novellas, just a couple chapters told from the guy's perspective. I think Midnight Sun was my first. . .huh.

Anyway so this was supposed to be shorter only it isn't and is basically the entire Hope(less) told from Clay's perspective and I couldn't be more thrilled, especially since that was the la

Oh my god.... Seriously, I think this might actually be my favourite book out of the entire series!!! I love clay and gabby's developing relationship, I think the fact that they took time to get to know one another makes them a stronger couple in the end... This is a must read for lovers of romance!

DNF Thank God it was free.

Stopped at 32% and I'm still not sure why I kept on going as far as I did.

It started out promising despite the mediocre writing and slowly went downhill.

There was NO conflict. It was basically a story about an 18 year old girl and her dog. Cute, but not what I'm looking to read. I need some umpf, not just boring crap about a girl taking care of a dog, watching movies, reading books, and eating sandwiches.

Writing reviews for Melissa Haag's books is always a difficult task for me, because nothing I say ever seems to be adequate and I feel like a broken record every time. This book is amazing. There, I said it. Done. (Repeat)

For those that have not read Hope(less) yet, this is the other side of the story. I have read Hope(less) three times and catch something new every time. I don't read books more than once. I've only done that with one other book. There is just something about Melissa

Clay's Hope was AEWSOME!! If you've read Hope(less) then you know Clay doesn't talk during the whole book, except at the end. This book is his point of view. You will not be disappointed at all. Yes, it's basically the same book as Hope(less), but also so much different.

You see things and events that take place from his perspective. And also events that happen when Gabby isn't around. This book made me love Clay even more.

I actually enjoyed this companion novel more than the original one! Seeing events through Clay's eyes made SO much more sense to the overall story. Gabby is still the self-centered annoying person we see in the original but through Clay's eyes we at least get a glimpse at why he does what he does and stays with her!

Clay's Hope was everything I wanted in a change of POV book. I got so much more out of the story by experiencing it from Clay's POV! I adored Hope(less), thought it was fresh, unique and very intriguing! The Judgement of the Six series gets better and better with every installment and I have to say that Clay's Hope only adds to the overall story! I had no idea it was even possible, but it also makes you fall in love with Clay even more than you already had after reading Hope(less)!

Clay's Hope is the same story as from Hope(less), the first book in Judgement Series), but this time it's told by Clay.

After reading Hope(less) I couldn't imagine that this book will be different. Just a recap. I was a bit sceptical, as Clay is not really talkative... and I was afraid that it will be just description of the events... How wrong I was!

Yes I read it in one day. After reading Hope (less) months ago I have been looking forward to more Clay and Gabby. I was offered the ARC for an honest review. Clay's POV broke my heart made me laugh and made me love him even more. This book also answers questions from Gabby's book. Even though the answers made me LOL. All of Melissa Haags books bring out emotions in me. They are YA and I would recommend them for readers of all ages

Loved getting a look into Clay's head with this one. It was so interesting to see how well Gabby's interpretations of his non-verbal communication matched up with his true intentions.

ON REREAD:
4.5 stars — I actually enjoyed this book more the second time around! I think that’s because I already knew what to expect from it, and it’s amazing what changing your expectations can do to affect your enjoyment. Clay was just so adorable, I just really ended up enjoying seeing the story from his perspective.

Let’s talk characters. Here we get to see the exact same story as Hope(less)... but in Clay’s POV. In Hope(less), Clay really came off as standoffish, shy, cold, and insecure. It is absolutely outstanding was perspective does to a character, because reading this story through Clay’s eyes you feel the exact same way about Gabby. It is shocking how many things Gabby was wrong about when she was trying to communicate with Clay. (Can we say awkward to the whole used car scene?). Reading Cla

This book is Clay’s and Gabby’s story told from Clay’s POV. If you’d read Hope(less) you know that Clay is silent for the whole of the book with the exception of one word in the middle and at the very end. So getting this book was so enlightening. Generally I’m iffy on companion books. Most of the time they’re a rehashing of the exact same thing with no other new input. Which doesn’t work when you have a character that gives feedback, even if you don’t get their point of view. In Clay’s Hope, it ...more

First and foremost, I think it should be said that this book on its own would be rather enjoyable, thus it’s not entirely necessary to have read any of the Judgment of the Six books, but I think you’d get the best experience by reading [Hope]less first, before Clay’s Hope.
While I certainly didn’t hate Clay in Gabby’s eyes, I now understand him more and completely adore him. In this companion novel we not only get his point of view on several important events from [Hope]less, but we also fi

"Clay's Hope" is "Hope(less)" told from Clay's POV. This didn't feel as though it was just a repeat of an existing novel. The book contains material never before seen in "Hope(less)"; therefore, those that are leery of becoming bored with repeated material have nothing to worry about.

This was a highly anticipated book for me, and it did not disappoint!! Clay's Hope tells the story of the book Hope(less) from Clay's POV. If you have read Hope(less) then you know what goes on with Clay and Gabby. Clay's Hope is not just a repeat of Hope(less), but a new perspective and a deepening of the love story between the two. It was a wonderfully written book. Many times I was surprised by what Clay was thinking; it was not what I had expected at all! This book has added many layers to C ...more

I liked this book enough to finish it. Told from Clay's perspective, the story is an interesting spin on alpha werewolf meets his destined mate. Inarticulate to the point of total silence, Clay follows his destined mate to college in his wolf form and spends much of the book pretending to be her dog - some of which is extremely funny including an ill-considered vet visit. In the end, there wasn't enough actual dialog and communication to make up for the creative POV. As part of a series, the sto ...more

I've had it marked on my calendar for months. I was counting down the days until I could get "Clay's Hope" in my hands.

Clay’s Hope tells the same story as Hope(less). I wasn't sure how I would feel about revisiting the first installment of the Six series – even though it has been my favorite one of the books.
And most of that has to do with Clay – his persistence to win Gabby at any cost. And then to protect her even before she admi

I received this ARC from the Author for an honest review.

I have to say...I loved it!
This story is Hope(less) retold in Clay's POV.
I realized after reading this book that I love Clay a lot. He is funny, smart, and so interesting to learn about! He cares a lot for Gabby. It shows in everything he does for her.

I feel like this all this could be told in one book though . Switching back and forth between Clay's POV and Gabby's rather than make two different books.

This book is free!

I would not recommend reading this book without first reading Hope(less). It is also free and you can get it here. This is a companion novel to that book told from Clay’s POV . I found it intriguing because Clay was damn near mute in the first book so we really got a good idea of what he was feeling and thinking during their time together.

But really I think I may dislike him more than before. He kinda just let life happen around him instead of actively p

Oh, Clay. *swoony eyes and flaily hands* Hope(less) is one of my go-to reads when I'm having a rough day. It's fun and sweet and Clay and Gabby make me happy. Getting into Clay's head and seeing how their relationship progresses through his eyes was something I was looking forward to.

It didn't disappoint.

Clay isn't perfect. He acts on instinct and his instinct isn't always right (although it often ends up working out okay) when it comes to dealing with a human girl who's
