    1. I loved this book so much. It's beautiful, gentle, funny, kind, heartbreaking and wonderful. I knew I would love it when I read this: "All my memories are certainties. I can count on them most of all. And when I imagine something, or someone, new entering my life, I think that what I dread most is the possibility of creating more memories. More memories that will not leave me."That struck me as an extraordinary observation about life, one that is particularly true as we get older. I always feel [...]


    2. The author- Canadian Trevor Cole, writes with such clarity, soul, compassion and depth. His characters come alive in this novel. I cared about Zep and Hope and they stayed with me long after I had finished the book.The author expertly conveys the messiness of life- the good, bad and sometimes heartbreak that we have all experienced at one time or another. It made me cry, think(there are some great sections about the heart/mind connection that must have required intensive research), laugh and rea [...]


    3. Don't get your knickers in a twist about the title, okay? Forgot the obvious double entendre. Our subject here is love - can it be broken down into its constituent parts and rekindled scientifically? Really: what is love? Hope Riopelle is a neuroscience researcher trying to overcome a terribly traumatic event in her adolescence. Zep Baker is a washed-up ball player who's desperate to regain the affections of his ex-wife Emily. Hope establishes a step-by-step plan with scientific benchmarks I fel [...]


    4. Remember the fullest your heart has ever been, the moment you felt the most in love and the most loved in your life. Now imagine the total opposite. Think of someone treating your body with utmost respect and desire. Now imagine the total opposite. Hope Makes Love stretches to all these extremes, and explores the vulnerable points in between. It is visceral, absorbing, painful, and loving. It feels like a movie. It feels like the main protagonists, Zep and Hope, are speaking right into your ear. [...]


    5. I loved this book. It was exquisite. The title is brilliant and works on so many levels, but I fear that one of the levels will be to put people off reading it as it might come across as cheesy. This book is anything but that. I stayed up until 2 am to finish it, which is something I really rarely do. Other reviewers -- those who weren't up until 2 am last night -- have reviewed the book so much better than I could (in my sleep deprived state) but I am merely adding my high praise to this book b [...]


    6. Utterly mesmerized. Great characters; excellent plot & what a writer!!! I loved "Hope Makes Love." My sole reservations, as an indie bookseller, are the price (HC=$$ where I feel personally that in TP format it would be 'sure-fire' sell) & the cover. While the cover hints at the content of this excellent & unique story, it doesn't grab the way it truly could for the high-caliber that Cole's novel delivers. What an original & wondrous paring of unlikely 'friends'- Zep & Hope. [...]


    7. Book # 4 of 12 for a course I am taking.My favourite so far!I was compelled to tun the page because I loved the characters so well and each page told me more about them. Zep, a Bon Vivant who has had an epiphany and Hope, a deeply scarred scientist, set out on a journey together that is sweet and scary. A love story with a dark past.I suppose it is a bit of a spoiler alert but should be said that this book may be triggering to folks with a history of sexual abuse or assault.



    8. I LOVED THIS BOOK! It is pure genius. The plot, the dialogue, the characterization - all so well done. If I could just touch the hem of Trevor Cole's shirttail at GritLIT next month I'm sure the caliber of my writing would improve 100% :)
