Description from Goodreads:
He loves me. He loves me not.Ever since I finished Meant for Me, I've been eagerly waiting for Hold Me Tight to be released...and it's finally here! :D I couldn't wait to read it, and it definitely didn't disappoint! While there was quite a bit of drama for my taste, I did really enjoy it. :) Hold Me Tight was most certainly worth the wait, and I am extremely happy with how everything turned out! The ending was seriously so satisfying...so know that going into it as a trilogy! ;)
Ivy's heart shatters upon hearing Eric's crushing ultimatum. Despite how much she cares for him, she won't give in to his demands. She has no choice but to leave, even if it's the hardest thing she's ever had to do.
She loves me. She loves me not.
When Ivy walks out, Eric can't help feeling betrayed. Unwilling to put her at risk, he values her safety above all else. By refusing to compromise, he's blindsided when she moves in with a man who's already stolen so much from him.
I love you. You love me not.
Lauren sees Eric and Ivy's split as an opportunity to end their relationship once and for all. When Ivy places herself at the mercy of Eric's rival, Lauren plots to destroy the fragile tie binding them together, even if she endangers Ivy's life in the process.
I have to admit that at the beginning of the book I was not a happy camper, and the characters were completely frustrating me. I wanted to shake them, and snap both Eric and Ivy into action. I may have been frustrated, but I was definitely involved...and my emotions had me completely wrapped up in the story. So, even when I wasn't a happy camper...I was still riveted to the story! Thankfully, while the beginning of Hold Me Tight started off a bit rocky, everything eventually came together and I was able to love the story in a way that didn't make me want to shake the characters. :P
I've always loved Eric and Ivy together, and in Hold Me Tight, this was no exception! I love their chemistry (it's definitely steamy ;D), their banter, and how they both really do make each other better. When they've been apart, they've made some pretty silly decisions, but in Hold Me Tight, it was great to see them finally starting to make "better" choices, and to think before acting...which for Eric, who has a bit of a quick-firing temper, was huge progress, and awesome to see. Most of all, I loved seeing their relationship grow stronger throughout this book, and seeing both of them mature as they did. Hold Me Tight was definitely fantastic for character progression, for Ivy, Eric, and a few of the other characters, too!
Overall, I really enjoyed Hold Me Tight, and have thoroughly loved getting to read Eric and Ivy's story in the Take Me Now Trilogy! I've loved seeing their relationship grow and all of the characters in these books progress...it's been a fantastic reading experience, and I'll definitely have to return to these books and characters again! I would recommend Hold Me Tight, and the Take Me Now Trilogy, to fans who like romances that aren't always perfect, and to fans who love super steamy chemistry that comes with a story packed with quite a bit of drama. :)
