Give Me Hope :: Book Review


Caution!! Proceed with care.


Give Me Hope is book two of The Reason Series by Zoey Derrick. Give Me Reason was the first book.
In Give Me Reason, we meet Vivienne Callahan and Mikah Blake and those of you who read it, like me almost died where the book left off. Vivienne is beaten and left for dead by none other than her ex-boyfriend Riley.

GMH is Mikah’s story. It starts the night Viv is beaten; the police show up at Mikah’s house and question him. They’ve seen his car outside of her apartment and want to know why. Mikah goes to her apartment the next day, hoping to take her to her doctor appointment, but she never comes out. He goes inside and finds her unconscious in a pool of blood. He rushes her to the hospital.

Yeah, so… she’s in real bad shape and the doctor puts her into a coma to give her a chance to heal. The whole book takes place in the hospital, the waiting room, a private room, and the chapel. He finds out that Riley’s father is one of his business partners and begins cutting all ties with him; the father comes to the hospital and actually argues with Mikah.

Mikah begins to understand that he really loves her. He also learns exactly what he is and what those strange pains in his shoulders are and why. Oh yeah…
He’s an angel!
He has an angel teacher, and OMG, the prologue in the beginning of Book 1 starts making major sense.

Vivienne is connected to all sorts of machines while she’s in a coma, some to keep her alive others to monitor the baby. The heart monitor reacts every time Mikah comes near her and he’s happy to know she knows he’s there. Something is going on with Vivienne though; Mikah and Dr. Alston notice can’t believe how fast she’s healing. When she finally wakes up, she is happy he’s there. She accepts his offers of help, which pleases him.

If I don’t stop now, I’m going to give away the whole book.

I loved Give Me Hope. Loved it! I’m not big on angels but I was happy with Ms. Derrick’s Mikah. I can barely wait until December 31, when Book 3 should be released. I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I allowed my 15 yro read Give Me Reason, and she’s anxiously awaiting Give Me Hope, along with my mother and a few other women I know.

I tell you this because women of various ages love the first book in the series and I’m sure the second book will be the same.
