Hard to Hold On To: A Hard Ink Novella by Laura Kaye $1,99
Hard to Hold On To: A Hard Ink Novella - Laura Kaye

 

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves--which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight.  He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago. 

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

Blog Tour w/Review - Thank You For Holding

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank You for Holding Ebook Cover

 

 

About THANK YOU FOR HOLDING:

 

Having it all is a fantasy, right?

 

Carrie Shelton thought her boyfriend was too good to be true. Her best friend's brother? A guy who loved antiquing? Who cuddled on the couch while watching foodie YouTube clips and talking about artisanal spices? Who helped her accessorize her outfits?

 

Right.

 

Fantasy.

 

So when he ran off with Kevin, the owner of an antique shop, right before his sister’s wedding, Carrie’s life went from fantasy to nightmare.

As maid of honor, she can’t back out of the wedding. And her ex is the best man - but now he has his own best man.

 

She needs a date. Stat.

 

Enter Ryan. Sure, he’s a hot male stripper at the O Spa where she works as junior designer, but he’s a few years younger and just, you know -- a friend.

 

Perfect. She needs a friend more than she needs a boyfriend.

 

A weekend of playing her boyfriend so she can save face is a lot to ask, but for some reason Carrie doesn't understand, Ryan's all in. Enthusiastic, even.

 

Especially when it comes to physical displays of affection.

 

Public kisses turn to private confessions, and pretty soon, Carrie can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality.

 

Because if Ryan's just pretending he's in love with her, then why does the chemistry between them -- and between the sheets -- feel so real?

 

Carrie can't settle for almost, though. She's already done that. She's not putting her life on hold anymore.

 

Turns out Ryan won't, either.

 

He's holding out for more.

 

Thank You For Holding is a STANDALONE in the On Hold series. You do not need to have read book 1 in the series, Our Options Have Changed, but after reading about Carrie and Ryan’s friends-to-lovers adventure, you’ll want to. ;)

Thank You for Holding (On Hold, #2)Thank You for Holding by Julia Kent
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the On Hold series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

Ryan has been in love with Carrie, since the first day they worked together. She was dating someone else, so he waited patiently for his chance. Now that it is here - he is afraid she will turn him down.

Carrie has been disgusted with her life lately. First, her ex dumps her over the phone. Then, she has to attend her best friends wedding, where her ex will be there with his new man. Can she pretend her way out of this?

This book felt a little whiny. I loved the characters. I enjoyed the humor, heat, and pace of the story. I was just very frustrated that the characters let so many things come before the love they supposedly have for one another. Just my opinion. I enjoyed the book overall.

Hold On
Hold On - Kristen Ashley Okay, I haven't read any of this series before but I'm glad I decided was convinced by Val's review to read this one book. It was super fucking long, but I liked it.

Of course, Kristen Ashley has to have somebody kidnapped. It drives me absolutely insane because that shit does not happen often. There are so many other ways to traumatize somebody without kidnapping. I hope she finds something new because I strongly dislike reading her stories knowing that somebody's going to be kidnapped around 90% of the way through the book.

What I liked about this particular story was that I didn't know who was going to end up being the bad guy/kidnapper. Is it gonna be the crazy step-mom? The delusional ex-wife? The dickhead neighbor? The creepy reporter? The drug lord? The strung out ex-boyfriend? Some totally random person we haven't seen before?! IT COULD BE ANYBODY! Usually we know who the bad guy is through the whole story and you know they're gonna strike at 90% because Kristen Ashley is insanely formulaic. Not this time. Oh no, I was like "It's him! It'll be him! No... it's her! Yeah, it's so obvious! But wait! No!" It ended up being somebody that I had considered and dismissed, but looking back on it - of course it was them.

I also liked that once Cher and Merry got together, they were together. Instead of a shitload of back and forth relationship drama I usually get in the Colorado Man series, there was a lot of external drama to deal with here. I much prefer that. I'm kinda sick of Kristen Ashley making her characters run out on their relationships, so this was a nice change.

As always, I have my small complaints and annoyances that keep this from being five stars, but this was definitely a pleasure to read. It was fucking long, though. 641 pages. I probably skipped 41 pages because a) I don't care about side-characters' backstory, and b) I skipped most of the epilogue because I don't care about the past book characters. This is the final book in the series, so the epilogue gave eeeveryone their happy endings. I didn't care. I skipped around until I found Ethan's epilogue and skipped the rest.

Sooo overall, a winner from Kristen Ashley. I'm still not gonna read her Fantasyland series and I'm still wary of anything she publishes because she's stuck in a rut of basically writing the same book over and over again with different characters. But if this ends up being the last KA book I ever read, at least I'll have finished on a strong note.

Also, Val was right - that was a smokin' hot sex scene.

RELEASE BLITZ, EXCERPT, & #GIVEAWAY - Our Options Have Changed (On Hold, #1) by Julia Kent & Elisa Reed
Our Options Have Changed (On Hold Series) - Julia Kent,Elisa Reed
Having it all is a fantasy, right?
 
Chloe Browne knows all about fantasy. Fantasy is her job.
 
And she’s very, very good at what she does.
 
As director of design for the O Spa chain, a sophisticated women’s club that is trending its way into being the Next
Big Thing, Chloe’s ready to take on the world.
 
One baby at a time.
 
Her home study’s done, and she’s about to adopt, a thirty-something single mother by choice. Who needs to put her life on hold for the right guy when the right baby is waiting for her?
 
Besides, talk about fantasy.
 
The right guy?
 
Pfft. Right.
 
And then in walks Nick Grafton, with those commanding sapphire eyes and wavy blonde hair and a sophisticated mouth that only smiles for her.
 
He’s perfect.
 
But the last thing Nick wants is to start fresh with a new baby as his college-age kids fly the coop. A single father for more than fifteen years after his wife walked out on her family, Nick finally tastes freedom.
 
But he likes the taste of Chloe more.
