In Letting Go by J.M. Witt we are introduced to Cassidy and James. Having only seen each other from afar, they are suddenly connected to one another through a tragic event and a lucky 2nd chance.
Cassidy Charles is a really fun character. While she has dealt with devastating and tragic events in her life she has been able to flourish and move on in her life. I have noticed a pattern lately in female characters who are very whiny and so back and forth with their emotions and thoughts. Cassidy isn’t this character! She is very witty, outspoken and has great taste in music! I loved the playlist for this book, and am actually listening to it while doing my review. I have said in previous reviews that I love a playlist for books. It connects the reader with the characters and the story and places you within certain scenes, most of the time very memorable scenes. The other thing I REALLY appreciated about Cassidy is she didn’t fight with James if he bought her something, I know it seems silly but I get so sick of characters going on and on when the male lead purchases a gift. She never fought against him and stomped her foot in independence only to succumb to what he was offering. Instead she said “thank you” and the scene moved on.
James Benedict III, is a well-known playboy. The press hounds him and women are all over him. However, Cassidy doesn’t make this connection until later in the story. James is also an awesome character. While BDSM is in this book and he is controlling and powerful in the bedroom, that’s where it stays. Outside of the bedroom he doesn’t try to dominate Cassidy, he isn’t overbearing or over protective. James and Cassidy’s dynamic, aside from some drama, is actually pretty normal. There is give and take and there is communication and understanding. There isn’t constant running away. Instead they both have the ability to understand that all is not what it seems until they get the true story. While moments in the book got heated with arguments or the unanswered questions, I was confident while reading that I wouldn’t be disappointed in the outcome or the answer that was provided.
The story was written in dual POV, going between Cassidy and James which helped dispel any angst or reader questions. Sometimes the POV would change between paragraphs going from Cassidy’s narration to James’s narration and then right back to Cassidy instead of having a noticeable break and at times it took me a second to realize what was going on. There were also a few times when it went from 1st person narration, Cassidy or James, to a 3rd person narration like the reader was looking in on them. While it didn’t happen often it did threw me off for a second. It didn’t necessarily ruin the story, I just found it odd. I loved this book, I enjoyed the dynamic between all of the characters, especially James and Cassidy, obviously! I cannot wait for more of them.
James Benedict III, also known as JB3, is notorious for being a playboy. James fell for Cassidy months earlier when they were first introduced at his bar. Ever since that fateful night, he has been unable to stop thinking of Cassidy. He knows the truth behind that horrible night, but he is afraid if she knows the full truth, he’ll lose her again.
What happens when the person you thought was responsible for your hurt was the one person you couldn’t forget? Will the truth bring them together or will the division brought on by tragedy in their lives be too much of a hurdle to overcome? Do you fight for what you want and know in your heart to be real or let the shadows of a horrific event steal what joy you have left?
J.M. Witt gives you just enough pieces that you can’t wait to find out what happens! The characters are well written and believable. There is angst and turmoil and sexual tension and then there is James’ kinky Dom side and Cassidy’s newly learned sub side. I can’t wait to see where their journey takes them next. A good read, make sure to one click it!!
I do want to warn you though, there is a lot of sex. A lot. If you do not want to read that, then you want to skip this book.
Cassidy is a fierce redhead (which I love). She has the passion and the intensity, as well as the temper, associated with redheads. She's been through some traumatic events and is moving on with her life.
James is a sexy, mysterious, character and I went back and forth from loving him to hating him. Often within a few sentences. He is drawn to Cassidy.
These 2 love hard and fight hard.
There were a couple of small things that I found, but nothing that really took away from the story.
There's intensity, passion, drama, suspense, and hot sex in Letting Go.
Supporting characters are really great and I found myself really liking Cal and Jane.
There are some temper tantrums in the book, but I am a redhead, and I do know that I personally have them too when I reach my limit, so I actually really appreciated them in the book. I thought it made it more "real".
Is this is A+B=C happily ever after book?
No, it's not, but it IS a book that if you like rollercoasters and books that engage you, you will love.
I give Letting Go, 4.5 stars and I can't wait to read more from JM Witt.
