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.
where do I even begin.. I clearly bought this book for the amazing woohoo scenes, and I WAS NOT disappointed, what I didn't expect was the amazing talent JM Witt brought as she put style, humor, romance, heat, loss, tragedy, addiction, drug abuse, cancer victims, but most of all love, in every chapter she wrote. my pet peeves are pet names, but my heart melted everytime james called Cassidy his blackbird. Cassidy's funny phrases like "I am clay, mold me" had me giggling and JM Witt's song choices had me continuously hitting up Spotify. only 1 thing I thought was missing was the "club" they were going to visit, would've liked to read about them visiting or participating. =) luv'd it! Congratz!
Starting with two best friends, Cassidy and Holly, who often feel as if they are all there is for each other we get to enjoy a snapshot of their relationship – One where they feel, even to the reader, as if they are closer than sisters and support each other as such. But that happiness is soon lost and, as we find out, the true root of evil that nearly destroys our young heroine, Cassidy, is hidden behind secrets.
But, Cassidy is a survivor who picks up the pieces and finds a new direction until she finds, James, the man she believes responsible for Holly’s loss, again. He has demons in his closet as well, and Cassidy’s overprotective cop brother, Cal, is aware of some of them and more than willing to fight to help his sister keep her sanity and her heart intact. Soon, however, circumstances force their secrets to be brought forward and we find out that, while James is struggling with a great many issues, Cassidy is still trying to conquer her troubled teenage years.
Not just a survivor but strong-willed as well, Cassidy refuses to listen to everyone and follow her heart, by surrendering to James, completely, and through the ecstasy they find with each other – she also begins to learn to trust again and leaves the reader waiting and wanting the next installment of their story. But theirs is not the only love story hidden in these pages, Cal, also finds someone to care about and love, James’ cousin, Jane. Then J.M. Witt ends by sharing a secret with the reader, as the epilogue shows us that Jane may have even more secrets in her past.
Letting Go is a journey well begun and one I cannot wait to continue.
