Things aren’t always what they seem…
To outsiders, Ashlynn Summers has it all: she’s the star of her own TV cooking show, respected by her community, and a devoted wife. Until she discovers something that shakes her rock-solid world. Now, all she wants is to focus on getting her life back on track. Volunteering at a homeless shelter renews her sense of purpose, but when she meets the insolent Luke Brault, Ashlynn can’t help but think there’s more to him than meets the eye.
Although Luke keeps to himself, his daughter is his sole priority. Guilt surrounding his single father status has eaten away at him, leaving a gaping hole. He and Ashlynn become friends, yet Luke fears his past will destroy the bond they’ve created. When they discover their pasts are intertwined and unimaginable secrets are revealed, Ashlynn and Luke find themselves on shaky ground in the aftermath. Suddenly, building something solid on a hollow foundation seems impossible. Can they find a way to repair the damage of the past, or is it too heavy for them to bear?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Author: Karlee Winters
I've never read a novel written by Karlee Winters before I picked up Hollow, and neither did I know much about the book itself, but I was amazed and taken through an adventure I never saw coming. It's one of those stories that reminds you that looks can be deceiving. Ashlynn seems to be living the perfect life to everyone who watches her on the television, but when she uncovers a terrible secret that leaver her broken hearted, she turns to volunteering hoping to heal. In comes Luke, a man whose world revolves around his daughter but no one know much about him. The two connect, hoping they can somewhat help one another, only they both fear what their secrets could do if they come out.
It was difficult to watch their struggles, to see them fight so hard through their pain and still fear the consequences of their secrets. I cheered through all of their obstacles and really hoped that they would finally get their happily ever after - and boy does Karlee Winters keep you guessing al the way to the end on the possible outcomes. I loved Hollow and can't wait for more from Karlee Winters.
