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
Series finales always bring about a sense of nostalgia. Whether the books are ones that continue with the same couple or are individual standalones. As the reader you fall in love with the characters, you become part of their lives and you don't want to let them go.
That's how I felt when I was reading this book. It took me a long time to warm up to Sal, but once I started to fall I stayed loyal to him the whole time. Despite it all, despite the pain, the heartache, and the circumstances our characters can live in peace. They can live happily together. Or can they? Of course not, nothing is ever that simple and I didn't expect them to be.
Emotional in ways I didn't expect, Hopechest is beautifully written, you can tell that Kailee took her time to bring her characters and her readers a story to be proud of, a story they can love, a story they can read over and over, no matter how emotional they got over it.
I wasn't expecting this book to make me feel all that it didn't but I loved that I was able to feel it. As a reader that is always one of the most important things.
Seasoned fans of this series do not want to miss this finale, I can promise that.
