One shy lost soul.
One silent lonely heart.
One love to save them both.
Life has never been easy for twenty-year-old Levi Carillo. The youngest of the Carillo boys, Levi is nothing like his older brothers. He isn’t dark in looks or intimidating to everyone he meets. In fact, he’s quite the opposite. Haunted by a crippling shyness and the tragic events of his past, Levi spends his days with his head buried in his books, or training hard for his college football team. Too timid to talk to girls, Levi stays as far away as possible and completely on his own… until he saves the life of a troubled pretty blonde, a troubled pretty blonde that might just be the exception to his rule.
Elsie Hall is homeless. Or at least that’s all anyone ever sees. Everyday is a fight for survival on the cold streets of Seattle, everyday a struggle to find food and keep warm. Alone in life—a life that’s dangerous and cruel—her will to keep going is an ever-losing battle. In her world of silence, Elsie has given up hope that her life will contain anything but constant struggle and pain… until the beautiful boy she has severely wronged comes to her rescue at precisely the right time.
New Adult novel—contains sexual situations and mature topics. Suited for ages 18 and up.
Tillie Cole is absolutely sensational. Sweet Soul managed to rip my heart out and then piece it back together in the best possible way. Levi, the last of the Carillo boys has certainly become his own man. However, his personality is completely his own and I completely fell in love with this Sweet Soul. We are also introduced to the love of Levi's life the beautiful Elsie. If you have read the rest of the Sweet Home series (and you really should) you will have seen little clips of Elsie in the epilogues featuring Levi.
Elsie is such a heartbreaking character and her outlook on life makes her one of the most extraordinary heroines I have ever read.
When I found out Tillie Cole was writing this additional book the series I loved the fact that i got to revisit my favourite characters. What i didn't expect was for Levi the young boy I had read about in previous books to become my favourite hero of the series. This book just broke every expectation I had and every page of Sweet Soul is breathtaking.
I would honestly recommend this book to all romance readers as this book is spellbinding and you will finish Sweet Soul with a different view on life and how you treat others.
