Blog Tour/Review ♥ Hope by Grier Cooper ♥ #giveaway

 Title: Hope
Series: Indigo Ballet Series #2
By: Grier Cooper
Publication Date: April 26, 2016
Genre: Y/A

Indigo is living the life she’s always imagined at the famed New York School of Ballet. Or is she? Although she hopes she’ll be chosen for the company, her ballet teachers aren’t talking and their silence is confusing.

When Indigo is singled out for a coveted solo she feels her dreams are finally within reach, until she discovers she’s dancing with Felipe Gonzalez, the school’s smolderingly hot rising star. In the days that follow, Indigo questions everything she thought was true and finds herself making surprising choices.

After a fateful piece of paper reveals the truth, Indigo must ask herself the hardest question of all: can she take control of her own future to create the life she wants?

Indigo's story continues in Hope and again I fall in love with her character the moment I picked up the book.

Normally not a YA fan, there is just something about Ms. Cooper's characters that make me see past this and become addictive to her stories.

Don't even get me started on the relationship between Indigo and Felipe - I found myself fantasizing about two stars dancing on stage to the most romantic dance known to man.

The angst and connection in this story are the reason I couldn't put down the book and just had to read to the very end.

  1. Thank you for the chance . Sounds great .

  2. What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

  3. Thank you for hosting HOPE today! To answer the question about my writing schedule, I write (and do other book business stuff) during the day while my daughter is at school... Sometimes I have to squeeze in extra work during swim team practices if I need to get something done. Generally I try to stick to the same schedule each day because I find having a routine helps.
