Annalee is a likable older woman dealing with the fall-out from her divorce to the town's Golden Boy. She thinks she's over the pain but being around him brings out her insecurities and has her fearing what the sweet and supportive Eric offers her. Annalee was easy to relate to with fears that are believable but the fears are holding her back from someone who truly appreciates her. Eric is her best friend's brother and he's loved her for over a decade. Their romantic connection at his Prom profoundly affected both of them but fate kept them apart. He never forgot about her and is back to finally claim her until fate intervenes again. Eric suffered from severe stuttering as a child but Annalee never saw him as weak. Even then she knew he was special as he treated her with care and as a true gentleman. He's sacrificed his own happiness for her time and again while waiting for her which endeared him to me and showed how in love with her he is.
This was a heartwarming story about fate and grasping happiness when it's offered. It may be short on word count but it's a fully fleshed-out story with a likable main couple whose relationship puts readers through the emotional wringer, but in a very satisfying way. Readers looking for a little afternoon delight will find this the perfect emotional roller coaster ride!

Don’t Let Go is a story about second chances, survival, and hope. Annalee’s life is turned upside down with her unexpected divorcee. Hurt, embarrassed, and lost, she pieces her life back together. I enjoyed seeing her regain her footing, and forge forward. It was a testament to what I feel is a woman’s strength. I could feel the pain with her as she was forced with wagging tongues in the small town, and the remarriage and pregnancy that came from her husbands’ affair. She finds a second shot at love where she least expects, with her best friend’s younger brother, Eric.
Eric was easy to like. Straightforward, attractive, and thoughtful he looked at Annalee like she hung the moon. What women doesn’t love that? After spending his youth haunted by a stutter he’s grown into a man who cares about the feeling of others. I loved his boy next door vibe, and the way he showed Anna that he cared. I was afraid his stubbornness would prevent them from getting together, but I thought that made him all the more human.
Full of humor, drama, and sensuality, Don’t Let Go is an awesome quick read.
Don’t Let Go is a quick read about a second chance at romance. Annalee is recently divorced and is dreading going to her high school reunion where she knows she’ll be forced to endure her ex-husband and his shiny new wife. Knowing that her best friend Dee will be there and has her back isn’t enough because face it, who wants to feel like the third wheel. But Annalee is a feisty one, refusing to give the gossips more fodder and tries to prepare herself mentally for the night – despite the dog’s attempts to drag her through the mud … literally (lol).
The only bright spot of the day is running into Dee’s kid brother Eric. The same Eric she accompanied to his senior prom when his date bailed at the last minute. The same Eric who made her pulse race when that night ended in a kiss. The same Eric who is now all grown up 12 years later and who is so hot he makes her think dirty thoughts … yummy dirty thoughts. The same Eric who decides it’s time to return the favor and shows up unannounced at her door that evening to accompany her to her reunion. Eric does this not out of obligation, but because he’s spent the last 12 years comparing every woman to her and they’ve all fell short because they weren’t Annalee.
Eric was an absolute dream date. I enjoyed how he made Annalee feel special and cared for just through his regular actions. Even better was how he accepted her apology later in the book, acknowledging that while he’d known how he felt for her for over a decade, she didn’t and he wasn’t entirely fair about the situation. While the renewal of their friendship and its transition to something more was sweet, the scene outside during the reunion with just the two of them was a steamy bit of foreplay that Eric more than delivered on its promise later that evening. While there were issues that both Eric and Annalee had to work on (don’t want to spoil it for you), I enjoyed the way in which they arrived at their resolution. Although there are parts of the story I would love to have seen developed further, in the format of a novella Ms. Raines has done a good job of moving the story forward without getting bogged down in unnecessary details. Don’t Let Go is a well-written novella and was a solid good read for me. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Raines work.
