I was weak.
After everything Id been through, Id grown weaker, not stronger. But I would change that. This was the year Id lose myself, even if this meant losing Calebmy rock. He was too close to the enemy, too close to do what needed to be done.
Alex Connor needed to suffer. It was the only way to stop him.
So, whatever it took, I would make him suffer and I would

HOLY WOW! What a rush! What a read! What another wild ride by Author Casey Diam! The scintillating sequel to Trust, Hope is a heady, heartfelt, and heart-pounding high-octane romance that delivers thrills and chills. This romantic suspense thrust me to the emotional edge and I felt it penetrate everywhere! OMG!!! The nerves! The angst! The anger! The elation! Hope hits every feel. This book made me BREATHLESS where I actually held my breath at times as my heart pounded out of my chest.

Hope by Casey Diam is the second book in the gripping new series Things That Matter. I can not get enough of these books with all the angst and suspense flowing from page to page. I fangirled so hard when I was given the chance to receive this advanced copy and I can't recommend these books enough because yes they are that good and no one should be missing out.

More revelations are coming to light for both Paige and Caleb. Their lives are more entwined then they could have guessed and both are

Some books demand a long review, some don't. This one does however, I choose not to write one. Not because the book isn't good...Oh quite the contrary...this book is damn good! I choose not to because I feel that anything I write regarding this intriguing, exciting and emotional read would only tempt me to give away too much. And this book should be read with open eyes and an open mind. These characters should be viewed as though seeing them for the first time (although we've seen them in the ...more

OMG!!!! Casey Diam is killing me with these cliffhangers!
I FLOVED her writing. I loved the plot, the characters, the writing. This had an amazing flow to this. I can't fucking believe that this is only her SECOND book!! Damn! Can you believe that?
Caleb and Paige have a LOOOONGGGG way to go for sure ❤
And there are a few A HOLES i would personally love to get rid of.
Overall it was a definite 5 Stars from me!

In the second book in the 'Things That Matter' trilogy, Paige and Caleb's interconnected past is bringing them closer together but, at the same time, tearing them apart. Paige is just as strong as ever, even when she struggles with not only her past but Caleb's shifting feelings. Caleb, sigh, is still dreamy as ever with his sweet devotion to Paige's anxiety and safety. This story slowly builds to a stunning cliffhanger that surprised me, but also left me wanting more Caleb and Paige.

I jumped right into Hope after reading Trust, the first of this three part series (Things That Matter), desperate to find out what happened next.
And what did happen was gut-wrenching and left me gasping for breath. This second part of the series, is even more gripping than the first, and believe me when I say, I was enthralled by that one. This has more angst, more suspense and even a hint of dark, thriller to it as revelations are revealed showing just how terrible Calebs father is.

Can they have love and still get what they want? What will be consequences of finding out about the past? ...more

Woah I am LOVING this series! I feel like Im playing detective when Im reading it trying to work out these mysteries!

I was on the edge of my seat reading this with bated breath throughout as this gripping story continues.
This second book is more intense, the angst and suspense in the story makes it only more compelling!

Although it is dual POV again I feel this time we get more from Caleb, find out more about him and the emotional heart-breaking past but also
Very much his present too.

Wow, this series has me in a spin. From the beginning of Trust Casey has left us with more questions than answers and has sent us on an emotional roller coaster. For a relatively new author, Casey knows how to make her audience experience the emotions with her characters, and leave us hanging to know that they are going to be ok even though they have a journey which could so easily leave them being less than ok.

Hope continues Caleb and Paiges journey where they finished in Trust. A journey

This series is a must read so thankful to Netgalley for giving me this book. This author is very new to me. The covers were what caught my eye. I haven't had a series captivate me in a while. I'm dying to dig in to Love now to find out what happens.
Paige is a girl on the run but with Caleb by her side she decided to stop running. This books is twisted by how everyone is connected, suspenseful, hot and steamy. It does end with a cliffhanger which I knew will happen since there is a book 3.

WOW!

This book had me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't believe the things that happen to Paige and Caleb. The first book had me hooked and this one sealed the deal. The emotions were like a rollercoaster. I laughed at the silly things and cried towards the end. I'm stunned at the events that ended the book. I need more!

Having read book one in this series, Trust, a while ago, I caught up with that before starting Hope. What a great couple of books! I just loved the twists and heart-stopping moments, the 'who on earth can Paige really trust' questions almost exploded my head. I am totally in love with this couple and Caleb's friends, specifically Calvin; wow! What a group of hot, protective, sexy men they are.

Paige is such a badass! She is super paranoid of everyone and has trained so hard that I have no

This is such an intense series and so good!

I love Paige and she has so much to be afraid of yet she keeps searching for the truth behind everything, knowing that it may change everything. I love the introduction of her grandparents and their role in helping her and Caleb.

Caleb is so determined to bring down his dad and brother even though he knows there will be huge consequences for him as well. I loved his friendship with Calvin and how the two were always there for each other.

There were so

OMG speechless ! This book was so dang good ! I knew the first one was good but damn I must say Casey diam is one hell of a Author ! I loved this book ! The passion and love Paige and caleb have for one another is crazy and hot 🔥 and nothing changes after all had gone down and is still going down . If your looking for a new author to read I highly recommend Casey diam . She truly is amazing! And this book is so sexy and hot !
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Hope by Casey Diam is book Two in the Things That Matter trilogy. This continues the story of Caleb and Paige, which means you really should read the previous book 'Trust'.
Caleb and Paige are still working on their trust but of course the past isn't so much in the past.
This book doesn't end their story and will continue into the third installment called 'Love'.
Their story is really exciting to read!

This is the second book in the series and I do recommend reading them in order. Caleb and Paige have great chemistry and their story draws you in from beginning to end. The chemistry is steamy and the twists and turns keep this a fast-paced roller coaster ride of a story. I really liked it.

I didn't liked the first book so I have no intention to start this one.

Hope just keeps getting better. I have read the first book of this series and now cannot wait for the next book. while reading this book, I feared that the author would rush the story and I would be left thinking, "That's it?" But it happily blew me away. Hope also ends on a cliff hanger, so let the waiting begin. I cannot wait to read the conclusion to this wonderful series.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Oh boy! Where to start?

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! (Sorry, I needed to get that out.) Hope. Hope is a strong word. Hope is a powerful feeling. One small word has the ability to change lives, start wars, and end suffering. I'm this book, it does all three.

Hope. I'm still shaking my head, my fist, and my kindle. I'm so mad, angry, and upset. This story does not want to let the reader go. The entire time you read it you are part of Paige and Caleb's world. Even if you think you are walking away, it lurks in

This is the second book in this awesome trilogy, and the continuation of Paige and Calebs story. Paige managed to evade the clutches of the man after her, and Caleb protects her. No spoilers; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed! This is an amazingly well written flawless story, which is raw, gritty, mysterious, dark, complex, thrilling, and filled with angst, danger, and suspense. I was totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner, and I cannot wait to read the ...more
