About the Author

Molly McLain has lived in northern Wisconsin all of her life. She's a proud fan of the Green Bay Packers, fountain soda, angsty rock ballads, and jellybeans. She also loves camping and binging on reality TV, but her favorite vice of all is road tripping with the radio cranked. Someday, she hopes to travel the country with her husband and her laptop, because nothing gets the plot bunnies hopping like the wind blowing through her hair.

I loved this book! I was a bit critical in my review of the first book in this series because the synopsis I was given of the book implied to me that it was going to be a traditional romance, not one with as much heat and strong language as it had. Ms. McLain adjusted her synopsis of the first book to let prospective readers know better what type of book they are getting.

For this book Ms. McLain lets you know right up front what you are getting:
"Warning: This book contains über confident, dirty talking hero and a heroine who isn’t afraid to push the boundaries of the bedroom—or the beach. For readers 18+".

While this was a relatively short book - advertised as a novella actually - it really packed a punch. It was hot, sexy and kept me glued to my e-reader until the very end. While this is part of the River Bend series I actually think it stands quite well on its own and there is no cliffhanger!

I really look forward to reading the next book in this series.

If you are looking for a quick sexy read you won’t go wrong with this book.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Short, sweet and very hot. This novella, the second book by the talented Molly McLain, picks up where Can't Shake You (Book 1) left off by taking the readers along on Dan and Maddie's honeymoon.

Maddie and Dan have been together for several years. They have a healthy, satisfying sex life, but Maddie has a secret desire that has her craving some of the control her husband only exerts professionally. Instead of explicitly telling Dan what she wants, Maddie hopes that through the signals she is sending that Dan will figure it out. Does Dan figure out what Maddie wants? Or will he totally misread her? Will he want the same things? Does Maddie push Dan too far? Find out in this hot and steamy quickie.

This author came out of no where for me, and what a great find she has been! I like her writing style, I love the characters she's created, and I'm looking forward to reading more from the talented Molly McLain.

I'll be honest - I usually don't purchase novellas beacuse I can usually get the gyst of what happened when the full novel comes out but I'm glad I bought this one. It was a fast, easy, good read. Can't wait for the next book in the River Bend series!!

When I first came across the teasers for this novella, I knew immediately that I wanted to read it! It sounded like a quick, fun, and sexy read...and let me just say that it did not disappoint. I got exactly what I signed up for!

Dan and Maddie were likeable and believable characters, the storyline was fast and fun, and the intimate scenes were sizzling hot! I enjoyed this well-written story and am excited to read more books from this author!

This is a cute short novella from Molly McLain's River Bend series. It fits in right between #2 & #3 although some things would make more sense if there was more to their past history. I was also a little annoyed at all the editing issues, especially the missing words.

For the most part this is a cute book but due to the short length I don't want to give too much away. Suffice it to say that Dan and Maddie are on their honeymoon in Cabo and Maddie has a secret desire she is afraid to share with her husband. She is determined to do so before the week is over, but fear keeps her from revealing her true wishes and misunderstandings almost cause irreparable damage.

I really, really enjoyed Can't Hold Back. Book 1 was great, I believe I gave it four stars, so I was excited when 1.5 came out.

It's hooooooot. Let me just say, DAN IS THE MAN.

And, I feel like this is everything K Bromberg wanted her novella Unravelled to be, but failed to give.

I came across the River Bend series and I have fallen for the characters! They are all so relate-able and real that you just fall in to the story! Dan & Maddie's story needed to be told and I'm so glad to read it! You just fall for Dan's personality! Definitely a great read!!
