HOLD ON TO ME by Elisabeth NaughtonSTOLE MY HEART!!


I’ve been waiting for this one for a long time. I read Wait for Me over a year ago and loved the character of Mitch Matthews from the first moment he jumped off the page. I wasn’t sure about the character of Simone – or if she was the right person for Mitch, but Wait for Me wasn’t their story.  Now that I’ve finished Hold on to Me, I can honestly say – it was worth the wait! Ms. Naughton is a master at writing romance suspense, a genre that is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Mitch and Simone’s story begins with an unpredictable bang, heartbreak right from the start. What begins as a casual fling quickly becomes more than that for both of them. But their secrets are just too much! This dialogue driven story is quite a page turner and is tough to put down. Each chapter ends with a moment of extreme suspense or heart-wrenching angst. The supporting cast is tremendous and I’m thrilled that Katie and Ryan are woven into this story. I believe however, Shannon and Julia steal this show. The two young girls orchestrate a perfect reunion for Mitch and Simone, which is one of my most favorite book moment. Simone’s daughter completely stole my heart, and all readers will want the two lovers together if just for her. Mitch and Simone’s chemistry is hot and tender, but their stubbornness is a bit overdone. The storyline seemed a bit of a stretch and unrealistic, but that’s to be expected for this genre. Finally, I’m really a fan of strong male and female friendships aside from the romantic element. Mitch, Ryan and now Tate share exactly that – a great Bromance! Naughton’s books are always enjoyable and well written – and this tale is no exception. Although this is a continuation of Wait for Me, it can be read as a stand-alone, but to get the full effect of the entire cast of characters – read in order. Hold on to Me is a terrific romance full of action, suspense, drama, and several hot and sexy scenes!

Remember … BOYS are just BETTER in BOOKS! And I’m in love with this modern-day hero Mitch Matthews!
