    Do yourself a favor and don't overlook this book!

    If you aren't a Pepper Winters fan already, you certainly will be after this! I just want to quickly add - although Son and His Hope is technically a standalone, I would seriously consider reading the Ribbon duet first, which is book 1&2 and his parents books, to fully grasp Jacob's story. This book and series is something extraordinary and beyond anything else IMO, under the romance banner. Yes, it's a HEA, but the road getting there is bumpy and full of deep, deep holes, you need to buckle up and hold on tight! Jacob and Hope both have very similar backstories, yet the way each of them deal with things couldn't be more opposite. Jacob is unapproachable, stubborn and reckless. He suffers anxieties that have warped his perception when it comes to getting close to people including his own family and refuses any kind of friendship. Hope on the otherhand is chatty, annoyingly positive and full questions nobody will give her answers to. Hope meets Jacob when she is 10 and he 13. Instantly the young girl is taken with Jacob, much to his dislike. Hope's father takes her to Jacobs family farm to attend equestrian school and it's here the two find themselves in the beginnings of a love/ hate relationship that goes on for many years. Poor Hope, she does nothing but try to be Jacob's friend and he constantly shuts her down with his cruel and callous tongue. My heart hurt for her, how many times is she going to let Jacob reject her before she finally tells him to get lost? Jacob, although he has mixed thoughts about Hope, as soon as he develops any kind of feelings he will cut her off in the cruelest of ways. The story follows Jacob, Hope and their family over a period of about 10 years where we see many heartbreaks, adventures, highs and lows... I loved watching Hope eventually break through Jacob's ironclad defenses, her character is ballsy but still soft, just what Jacob doesn't need, some girl trying to make deals into his heart? This story felt completely different to other reads. I think it's the way Winters is able to portray her characters emotions and thoughts in such a prolific way that I felt like I was a character in the story right along side them, getting a bird's eye view of their life, emotionally invested till the end! At over 500pgs this is a story you need to be committed to. If you are reading for the slap and tickle then this is not that book. This series was book of the year for me and one that leaves a permanent mark!

    Jacob is definitely a Wild!

    I both longed for and feared this book. There's no other way to describe it. I longed for the tale of Jacob to use as a ball to my battered heart after experiencing Ren and Della's story. (Don't get me wrong, I LOVED The Boy & His Ribbon and The Girl & her Ren. I was an addict devouring every soul destroying word.) I just knew that I needed more. What I got was...MORE. It was not rainbows and unicorns. It was not instalove. It was intense and heartbreaking. The Son & His Hope is painful and hopeful. It's tragic, heart squeezing, and brutal. It's love in a messy, traumatized world. It's a true Wild experience. No pain, no gain, right!?! If you've read the Ribbon Duet, you are already so invested you probably are fighting tears with the blurb. I know I lost it in the prologue. If by some strange twist of fate you opted to take this journey with Jacob before experiencing his parents epic romance. I wish you luck. You aren't aware yet of the kind of pain and heartache Pepper Winters can bestow on her readers. You also have no idea the amount of joy and bittersweet smiles you have in store for you. The Son & His Hope have me the completion I never thought possible. Pepper Winters rounds out any injustices you might have claimed from The Ribbon Duet. Happily Ever After doesn't always look the way we planned, in real life and fiction. One of my favorite things about this series is Pepper Winters isn't afraid to give us the happily ever after our beloved characters deserve. I'm still smiling through my tears. I think it will be quite awhile before both my smile and tears stop but it was worth every heartache. It was worth the fear. It was worth it all to experience the joy and uncompromising love.

    Heartbreaking & Beautiful.

    "I see your fear. I see your anger. I see how you want to run but don't. I see you love but wish you didn't. I see how deeply you feel, Jacob, all the while begging you were heartless." I just love that Pepper takes the time to tell a story regardless of how long it will be. I am usually not that big of a fan of long books, but if the plot and characters are intriguing enough I will wish it didn't end at all. Pepper Winters is an author who really knows how to engage and entices a reader to keep on reading. I especially am a big fan of characters who knew each other from childhood to grow up and fall in love. Just like with his parents, Ren and Della, Jacob's life isn't easy as well. He grew up in a loving environment with the best people around him, but he learned about heartbreak pretty early on. This has impacted him so much that he doesn't let anyone come close to him. "A single night is nothing. You're worth a millennium of nights." However, there is this stubborn and headstrong girl, Hope, who will do anything to break down his walls. She really has the patience of a saint, because Jacob definitely wasn't the easiest person to deal with. But there is just something she sees in him, and she will not give up until he sees it as well. Honestly, my heart broke when I saw how Jacob treated the people closest to him. I got mad at him many times, and I just wanted him to snap out of it. But I realized further down the story that he really couldn't help himself. I was just glad that Hope didn't give up on him and stood by him during his most difficult times, even though he didn't want her around. "Her vulnerability almost ruined me. Her love so pure. Her care so bright. It closed a coffin around my already dead soul and threw away the key." I loved being reunited with characters from the Ribbon Duet, even though it was very bittersweet at times. This book had me on the edge of my seat at times. The heartbreak resulted in me crying my eyes out. I was on an emotional roller coaster, and I didn't know how it would end. It was a wild ride. I cried, laughed, swooned, smiled, got angry and sad while reading this book. I was happy that the author told Hope and Jacob's story regardless how heartbreaking it was sometimes. I absolutely Pepper's writing style and amazing story-telling abilities. It really grabbed and didn't let go of me until the end.

    Epic!

    6 Hearts The Son & His Hope is an epic story by Pepper Winters. You can read it as standalone but I HIGHLY recommend reading the Ribbon Duet first to feel the full impact. The Ribbon Duet is everything and more. It’s a story that will never forget and now I have their son’s story to remember. Jacob is fourteen. Hope is ten. They are both very mature for their ages. He was at the movie premiere for his mom. She was there to watch her father on the big screen. She saw him from the moment they met. He didn’t want to be near her. That’s where their story began. I don’t want to spoil anything. I will say that Hope is one of the strongest characters I have had the pleasure of meeting in a book. Della Wild was another. The two of them in one book is amazing. Then there is Jacob. A man who was never really a boy. He is protective. Always. He is also moody. Very moody. But, Hope is not afraid. She is determined to be his friend. A friend to a man who doesn’t want her there. At his farm. In his way. In his life. This series is epically amazing!!! And this story was one I didn’t know I needed but can’t imagine now not having it. Jacob and Hope’s story is an emotional ride. It gave me every single feel there is. I cried. Hard. I got angry. I felt sad. I felt everything. The writing is pure genius. Poetic. Overall...it’s a poetic journey that will stay with me. Quotes: “You have your entire life ahead of you, Wild One. All I ask is...try not to rush it. Be grateful for each day, even the dark ones.” “Why are you doing this?” She smiled sadly. “Because ever since I saw you on set, I’ve wanted to know you. I’m not afraid of you, Jacob. And you need someone who isn’t afraid of you.” “I don’t need anyone.” “If this is you being civil, I don’t want to know what you’re like when you’re being rude.” “Hang around and you’ll find out.” “Maybe I will.”

    Breathtaking

    The Son and His Hope is the most beautifully written books I have ever read. This book is about enternal love and the struggle to believe, find, and hold onto it. Pepper Winters, you have outdone yourself.
