From the Back Cover

How do you let go of the past when your dreams of the future are shattered?

When Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen, they believed they'd be together forever. They never dreamed that three days before their wedding, twenty-year-old Ben would suddenly die from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride's world. Grey would have spent the next two years simply going through the motions if it hadn't been for their best friend, Jagger. He's the only one who understands her pain . . . the only one who knows what it's like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered.

While everyone else worries over Grey's fragility, Jagger is the only one who sees her strength, and vows to always be there for her—even if it's only as her best friend. As much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. But when Grey finds out that Jagger has loved her since before he even knew what love was, it might prove to be too much for her to handle.

Grey soon realizes that their chemistry is undeniable and that admitting their feelings for each other means they've got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

About the Author

Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach . . . which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes.

Well, if the glowing reviews are anything to go by, it's unpopular opinion time, folks. That's okay. I don't mind being in the minority--it's not the first time.

I'm not going to mince words. Had I not already been familiar with some of Molly McAdams' previous work, I would've passed this book up. The cover is god-awful. I know I shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but it's hard not to, especially when what it has to offer inside doesn't help to improve my overall opinion of the book.

I found "Letting Go" to be overly long and tedious. It went from being a semi-enjoyable read to something I had to force myself to finish. I put it down several times. It was repetitive, predictable, and frustrating beyond belief.

I didn't care for the dual point of view narration. Had the author not specified with a header each time, it would've been hard to identify who was speaking. This is exactly why I prefer books told from only one perspective, usually from the main female protagonist's. I just find that many authors aren't successful in writing an authentic first-person male point of view. I'm not saying it can't be done, and done well, it's just that this, more often than not, is what turns me away from a book.

I found the characters to be dull and boring. They weren't fleshed out enough for my liking. Take Grey, for example. She's a twenty-two-year-old recent graduate. I have no idea what degree she earned, no clue what she wants to do with her life, other than grieve over the death of her fiancé, who died two years past.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is the first book I have read of Molly McAdams and I will have to seriously decide if I want to read another.

Grey and Ben seem to have been in love forever and are about to get married in only three days. When Ben suddenly dies of an unknown heart condition, Grey is wondering how she will go on. If Jagger had not been around for the past two years to help her thru the daily tasks she might not of been able to even graduate college

Jagger has always cared and loved Grey in his own way. He will sacrifice his own happiness to take care of Grey forever if she will let him. What Grey does not realize is that Jagger loves her in more ways then just friendship.

I found the book way to slow and predictable to get into and it was only towards the last fifty pages that I enjoyed it.

4.5 Stars - Molly McAdams has certainly perfected the art of ripping her readers hearts out with her emotionally charged words and Letting Go is no exception. Grey and Jagger’s story begins in the wake of tragedy and their journey of healing is long, heart wrenching, and unexpected. I felt this story in a very visceral way and even shed a few tears as Grey and Jagger navigated their lingering grief and unspoken feelings. Their relationship is deeply rooted in a lifelong friendship, placing them on that precarious edge between having everything to gain and everything to lose. Despite the strength of their bond, this gave them a fragility that had my heart proceeding with caution, constantly anxious about the direction of their story. Letting Go is heartfelt and elegantly written, connecting readers with characters that are undeniably and imperfectly human.

Jagger is the ultimate best friend turned book boyfriend. Singularly devoted to Grey, there were times when I wondered if he’d end up devastated by his love for her. As the truth about the extent of his feelings for Grey was revealed, I found myself falling harder for him. If you’re looking for an alpha male, Jagger is not it. He is the sincerely sweet boy-next-door type with a side of sexy and fierce protectiveness that made me swoon for him even before Grey did. I must applaud Molly McAdams for her emotional development of Grey over the course of the story. Molly McAdams writes Grey’s overwhelming grief and the resulting emotional war with absolute sincerity and a raw honesty that is nothing short of heartbreaking. I couldn’t help but feel her story all the way through, connecting with Grey and investing myself in her and Jagger’s happily ever after.

***Taken from my book blog at http://booknerd0116.blogspot.com/2014/11/mad-props-for-mcadams.html ***

Every once in a while you read something and remember why you fell in love with a particular author. This just happened. Molly McAdams has shown me once again, with her latest novel, just why I adore her. Letting Go, the first Thatch book, is her latest release and it is almost beyond words. Really, it was...but I'm going to try.

Grey and Jagger, the main characters, have been friends since childhood. They know everything about each other and love each other to the moon and back. Jagger has a fiercely protective attitude about him when it comes to his best friend, Grey. Why wouldn't he be? He's known her forever and he has gone through the same devastation and heartbreak that she has. They've been there to support each other and lift each other up during tragedy. Jagger is so patient, kind, loving, and seemingly unselfish with her that it creates this illusion of a fairy tale of sorts. He is the prince that every girl is waiting for...maybe even Grey.

Letting Go weaves the most intricate, tangled web of relationships with so much depth and incredible amounts of heart built into each character. It's been a long time since I've had a story move me like this one did. I felt actual hurt in my chest as I was reading this because the characters were like friends that you only wanted to see happy things happen to. Parts of me broke inside while I was reading and I was led to tears several times as well. That hasn't happened in who-knows-how-long. Probably not since a Nicholas Sparks novel. We all know how those go!

What I love about McAdams' writing is that her characters are so real.
