Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.
After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.
When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love…
Holding on Tighter revs up from the very beginning and just doesn’t let go. It’s a wild and thrilling ride chocked full of action and seriously intense chemistry between our hero and heroine, Heath and Jolie. Heath is the embodiment of a dominant male. He’s mysterious, sexy, commanding and over-the-top passionate. His attraction to Jolie is apparent from the get-go, and the way he treats her is enough to make any woman swoon. Of course, him being SO sexy helps tremendously, too. Jolie, on the other hand, is a spitfire. She’s confident, independent, and her resistance brings out the charm in Heath.
The story itself is brilliantly written, with Shayla Black’s signature touch. It’s an addicting, sexy romance that’s guaranteed to please.
I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book offered to the blog by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
