Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Holding On was a fantastic, easy to read and swoon worthy romance with some seriously amazing characters. I’ve read most books in this series and loved them, and this book was no exception. I really found the two main characters, Harrison and Kenzie, to be really interesting and genuine. I felt that even though this book was quick and easy to read, I connected with the characters and understood their emotions and motivations. Often in a romance book it’s over too quickly and I didn’t feel like I understood the characters at all. This is not the case with Holding On. It’s enjoyable, steamy but also truthful, with barely any tropes/cringing involved. Even though I am not an adventure/outdoors type myself, I love this series as it has some really genuine and hot characters. Not many romance stories detail search and rescue scenarios and I think that adds to the overall appeal for me.
Harrison was hot, older and had his own inner demons. Watching him learn to love himself, to forgive himself and love Kenzie was great to read. There were certainly ups and down to their relationship, but its such an enjoyable book it leaves a smile on your face. As usual there is a pinch of drama/danger but I love that and it gives the book something to focus on other than pure romance. All the other characters from other books and all the side characters are back and its so good to read and have them consistently throughout each book of this series.
If you are looking for a wonderful, very easy to read romance thats steamy with a little bit of drama and danger, this is certainly for you. I would also highly recommend Pamela Clare’s other books.
Thanks to Pamela Clare and NetGalley for my advanced copy. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and I voluntarily read this book for review.
