About The Book
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 the 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 Merricks 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. They also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, Garrett sees the woman who truly is for him and he goes after her
About The Author
Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).
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.
I have been a fan of Kristen Ashley for a while now when I say a fan, I mean obsessed person who owns ALL her books! bar one but shush I'm buying Sebring tomorrow, its pay day! YAY!! Anyway Hold On the last in the Burg series! well what can I say to properly explain my love and admiration for this book. well lets start with what the book is about, Cher and Merry, the last single man in the Burg and the tough chick who has been through more lows than highs who has accepted that she isn't the type of girl who can dream! Merry also has felt real pain, losing his mother, and divorcing the woman who was meant to be the one. With any love story you have obstacles but these two have mountains and to reach the other side they are going to have to hold on, and brace! The hits come, but what blossoms doesn't just make up for them, it smashes them to pieces, love, family, friendship rammed with action, baddass men, and smothered with smart wit and beauty.
Hold on, is beautiful end to the Burg series, which was full of emotion and depth. Hold on, was delicious in every way and
I couldn't of asked for more, the epilogue was oozing with satisfaction and love and I now have one severe book hangover!
You can never got wrong with a Kristen Ashley book believe me, flawed, complex characters that become a part of you, that make you fully invested, plots with twists and turns that keep you reading page after page. A unique undeniable voice that flows through every single book entwining everything! Series' that become cherished and loved. Kristen Ashley is QUEEN!
