I read Season’s first book, Beautiful Addictions, and loved the dark, intense tone of the book and just knew I had to read Held Against You. I am so glad I was approved because I just loved this book.

It’s no secret that I love books that challenge you and make you look between the lines. Nothing is ever black and white (to me) so when you are forced to look deeper than the surface and think, I eat it up! That is exactly what Season does in Held Against You.

Of all the romance troupes out there – the hunter vs the hunted could quite possibly be my new favorite. Kat is the hunted, on the run after being accused of committing View Spoiler » a crime. Steel, Lucas, Johnny (take your pick!) is a bad ass bounty hunter that never misses his mark.

Kat is hilarious and full of sarcasm, there were several times I was laughing at loud at the things she said and did. She isn’t some air head though – she is a very smart woman with a big heart. Although she is resigned to her fate – I love that she tried to make the best of her situation. She has wallowing thoughts from time to time, but nothing on the level most people would. Steel (I am using his alias for a reason, because that moment we find out his name? *SIGH*) is probably one of the most heartbreaking male characters I have read in a while. He is good at his job – and knows it – but he’s so lonely it broke my heart.

There were many things I loved in this book. The romance, obviously. It’s more than physical attraction; their chemistry was almost instant and I loved how the slowly learned to trust each other and go from there. The action – non stop. There are several players in the game and it’s intense and heart pounding throughout! There were many twists, a few surprising, some not but I loved it all the same.

In Held Against Me by Season Vining, the action starts out on the first page and does not let up until the very end! We meet Katherine, who is on the run for a serious crime that could land her in jail for life – or worse – death row. She will stop at nothing and do everything in her power to escape the authorities and try to get to Canada. As the story progresses, the reader learns that she is not the cold-hearted killer the authorities believe she is – in fact, the reason behind the murder is very understandable - far from acceptable, but very understandable. I loved Katherine’s character with her witty remarks and her 80’s music and movie trivia. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with!

And then there is the man who shall be unnamed until halfway through the story. Kat nicknames him ‘Steel’ which is very appropriate. He’s a sexy as sin Bounty Hunter wanting the huge payout for bringing Katherine in. He will stop at nothing to find her – and he will find her – for he is the best at what he does. When he does finally catch up with her, he finds more than he ever bargained for. He is tough as nails and cold as steel, but along the way, we find out that he and Kat aren’t that much different.

“We’re all f****d up. Some of us are just better at pretending.”

Add in a tough biker/bounty hunter who is hot on their trail, a bitter ex-girlfriend, a money embezzlement scheme, some super-hot sex and you have the perfect ingredients for an enthralling story that will keep you on the edge of your seat guessing the entire time!

From the very first chapter I was hooked on this awesome story! It’s intense, action-packed and full of so many twists and turns it kept me up reading until the wee hours of the morning wanting to know how the story ended.

This book was absolutely amazing. Normally, I would take the time to throughly write a review that's clear and written well. But I'm too excited and this book was amazenuts!

The prologue definitely intrigues me and I want to know what this girl is hiding from. Then we immediately meet "him" and I'm already in love with this POV. He seems tough, stern, and I want to gobble him up with some biscuits.

The story gets going and I'm so intrigued and want to know all the details of everything. But it's a book and a good author never lays it all out there up front. Season Vining does an excellent job of keeping me questioning, but still hooked on the story. There are twists and turns and several, "Oh snap!" moments.

Her characters are beautifully written. Katherine Percle is sassy, adventurous, smart, and brave. I am not sure about her at first, but she trips right into my heart and I'm taking tequila shots with her. Then we have Steel. I know he has a real name, but I don't want to give that away. That moment was the favorite part of the book! I cried, like s baby. Back to Steel.... he's is all kinds of tough guy meets mysterious backstory lol. He's badass and dreams and I want to caress him. Vining wrote that man well!!!

I have to mention Boots. He's the best bad guy I've read in a long time. We are supposed to hate the bad guy, I know. But this guy had me standing and applauding him for how sinister her was.

Overall this was great read, worthy of 20 stars, and will definitely be reread again. Read this book filled with action, suspense, mystery, snark, and sexy fighting over the key to Kat.
