Oh how I love these characters! This is an odd series whereas there was a main series and it has since broken off into multiple other smaller series. This is the second book in the Mended Hearts series and what I love about this book and the one before it is they have been more suspense than the others. I find myself gravitating more towards those types of books. I love for the adrenaline and danger and erotic romance that all bundles together in one delicious package. We first met Janelle in her brother's series, Here and Now. Now while you don't HAVE to read these series in order, I highly recommend it because they are just that good! You can see below for the correct reading order.

What did I love about this book? I loved how vulnerable Janelle was, but yet she didn't shy away from anything in her life. Life had definitely thrown her more than a few curve balls, but she just kept getting back up swinging. I hate that she let the Tom saga drag on for as long as she did, but I get that it's hard to abandon the only love you've ever known, especially when they've conditioned you to think you can do no better. I love that even though she made the first mode, Cade came into her life like a wrecking ball she never saw coming. I also loved his vulnerabilities. Even though he had been burned from her lifestyle in the past, it didn't stop him from rushing to her side and being her protector. Even though he tried effortlessly to deny it, their chemistry burned so bright. Every scene that they were in together, the want and longing jumped from the pages. Behind the facade, Janelle really was a genuine person who loved those around her without fail, and when Cade was able to see past what she presented to the world, it was so beautiful.

Lexi Ryan has a way of drawing you into her books and refuses to let go of you until you've reached the end. Holding Her Close just continues to prove that Lexi Ryan is an amazing story teller.

If you've read any of Lexi Ryan's previous books you know who Janelle and Cade are, but we never really got to really get to know them. This is their story, and it is one hell of a ride! With the two of them brought together by a mistake and some bad circumstances, you can only hope things get better for them, but it takes a LONG time for these two to get on the same page.

With Janelle about to lose the role of a lifetime due to her ex-husband his wife, she's forced to fake a relationship and a case of mistaken identity drops Cade right into her lap. She's always had a crush on him, but he's always been stand-offish towards her. When she forgets what she's supposed to be doing, and lets one amazing night of him not knowing who she is interfere with her goal, things get even more complicated.

Cade has a history with Hollywood, and despises everything that comes out of it. He's attracted to Janelle, but knows who she is and where she comes from. As the story progresses we get the full reason as to why Cade is so against Hollywood actresses and everything they represent, and it breaks my heart for him. He's closed off and he fights what he's felling for Janelle tooth and nail.

The chemistry between these characters is out of this world. They bicker, they fight, they have some extremely steamy moments, and then repeat everything over again. When Janelle ends up receiving threats, the first thing Cade thinks of is to fly off and help her. Even with Janelle being as confused as she is with the back and forth with Cade, she's grateful that he's there for her.

Janelle’s made mistakes, which forces her to lie and play a role she doesn’t want to, which is further complicated by a case of mistaken identity. But when fiction starts to become reality and her pretend boyfriend becomes everything she’s ever craved, how does she mesh the two worlds she wants to be a part of and what happens when there’s more than just the push and pull between her and Cade to worry about, resulting in greater risks to more than just her heart?

I absolutely loved Janelle and Cade's story. Ever since Janelle was introduced in Hanna and Nate's series, I've loved her spunk and genuineness. I love how close she is with Nate and her ability to weather anything that comes her way and those qualities speak to her true nature despite her Hollywood profession.

Cade is such a strong and protective man; the safety of those he cares for is extremely important to him, and he’s starting to realize that Janelle fits into that category, but he doesn’t think he belongs in her Hollywood world because he’s already been burned before by a Hollywood princess, and he still has the scars to show for it. Because readers are privy to Cade’s backstory with his ex, I understand the wall he's built around his heart and his inability to see Janelle for who she really is, but I also think the fact that he lumps Janelle into the same category as his ex without truly knowing who Janelle is isn’t fair to her or to what they could possibly have if he was able to separate her from the other Hollywood types that he knows.

Cade frustrated the hell out of me on numerous occasions with how he handled certain situations – reality can be completely distorted when a negative mind frame overshadows everything else, which is clearly the case when it comes to Janelle and Cade.
