Hold On, by Kristen Ashley Narrated by Erin Bennett
Since she was young, Cher Rivers knew she was not the kind of girl who got what she wanted. A girl who could hope. A girl who could dream. She knew a happily ever after just wasn’t in the cards for her.
In love for years with last bastion of the ’Burg’s eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman.
The Merrick Family is known for loving deep. So when Cecelia Merrick was murdered, it marked the Merrick family in a way none of them recovered. Both Cecelia’s children found love. Both turned their backs on it. But Garrett “Merry” Merrick knew in his soul the woman he divorced years ago was the one for him.
Until the night when Cher took Garrett’s back and things changed. The Merrick family loves deep but they also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, he can see the woman who truly is for him and Garrett goes after her. The problem is she’s surrounded by danger. So he has to win her at the same time keep her safe.
my review 3 stars
This is the audio review for Hold On. Audio’s can be a completely different experience than reading. This is one where I felt that to be true. It’s one thing to read a curse word, but for some reason it felt like every other word I was hearing was F**k. Hell, don’t get me wrong I normally have no problem with this, but hearing it over and over again put me on edge after a while. So much so I felt myself cringing. I would not be surprised if 10,000 words in this book are the F bomb.
Let’s talk story
We hear from all of he characters in The Burg. I was particularly happy at Joe’s involvement in this story and even Rykers. I found some of the most enjoyable parts of all the characters in The Burg got to shine here. Cher had a lot of likeable traits, except for her cursing.
I liked her son Ethan too. He really got to stand up for his mom.
Garret was enjoyable, but I lacked the wow.
On point 5 star-Excellent
Would I recommend a credit?
The Burg Series went back and forth for me. Some of them I loved. Some of them I liked. This one was okay, if you loved this series then I would say buy it.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
