As the head of the rich family business, by day Tony had a polished lifestyle but he was also an MMA fighter by night. And he did a pretty good job of juggling the two sides of his life. He was, as I expected, a millionaire with a rough exterior but a good heart. Not surprising perhaps, but enjoyable still.
What I liked about Ginny the most though was the fact that she knew she made some rather questionable choices and when she snapped out of whatever silliness spell she was under, she was able to see how unreasonable and naive she’d been. I gotta be honest, sometimes heroines might just make excuses for the way they’d behaved and as the reader I let it slide because she’s the heroine and she finds the way in the end, but it was nice to read a heroine criticize herself for once before I could do it for her.
While the MMA part of the plot can’t be found much in the book, except for a few scenes where Tony used his skills to kick some ass, the action was still there. Just like the first book of the series, I felt like that action, the plot involving some shady business of the bad guy, took up more space than the romance. This was especially true for this story because Ginny and Tony had a prior acquaintance, so when they started their relationship, it was quick. They didn’t waste any time since they had their past in their corner. I could’ve used more details with their relationship though because there’s nothing like running away from, and trying to bring down a ruthless, powerful man to form a strong bond.
Tony is determined to get Ginny to talk to him again, to give him a chance to be in her life again, but she's not budging until one night she shows up on his doorstep, beaten and bruised. Now Tony and Ginny have to figure out a way to take down her fiancé, even if it appears that Tony's family may be doing business with Ginny's fiancé. But, Ginny has to worry not just about her family's business and Tony's family, but her sister, too. Her stupid, selfish sister whom I couldn't stand. I wanted Ginny to cut her loose so many times and Ginny just wouldn't do it and it got to be a bit frustrating at times. I know family is important, but Ginny allowed hers to treat her badly and didn't do anything about it until far too late.
I liked Hold You Close but it wasn't as heavy on the romance aspect as I had hoped. It's got a good amount of action and suspense, but it overtakes the romance a little too much. I was hoping Tony and Ginny's connection and relationship would be explored more. I was hoping for more heat, but it was overshadowed by the action. Still, Hold You Close is an entertaining read about two people who get a second chance.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book received through NetGalley.
A romantic suspense novel focusing on Ginny and Tony. Their chemistry was instant from the beginning. Tony and Ginny had a past attraction for each other, dated several years prior. Running into each other and stumbling upon each others lips was excited and fun to read, but then drama unfolds. More like drawn out drama. The book started off with a bang but later smoothed out. Then half way through, suspense engulfs you that left me flipping through my virtual pages. I didn’t want to put the book down. It became really good!
This story had a little bit of everything. Ex-MMA fighter turned CEO, daughter who would do anything for her family, even if it means giving up her own happiness to save them and new found friendships that shows that despite many obstacles, they are there for you.
Jessica Linden is a very detailed author in all aspects of her writing, except I have to say the intimate scenes. Most of the "naughty scenes" were not as detailed/descriptive and I felt as the reader, we were left hanging. Yeah, we know what goes on during those scenes however, so much emotion is portrayed that I feel it took away from the story and the character development.
I really enjoyed this novel. Yes, at first it was a little slow but it definitely picked up in speed later. So please, wait it out. I promise you will not be disappointed!
