“Corinne Michaels and Melanie Harlow are a match made in heaven. Five-Sweet-Stars for this unforgettable collaboration!” –A.L. Jackson, New York Times bestselling author
Hold You Close, an all-new second chance standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Corinne Michaels and USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!
From NYT Bestseller Corinne Michaels & USA Today Bestseller Melanie Harlow, comes a second chance standalone romance.
Ian Chase broke my heart at seventeen, and I’ve spent the last eighteen years hating him for it.
He makes it easy, with his smart mouth and playboy lifestyle—which I unfortunately have to observe since he lives behind me. Every time I see him climbing out of his pool, practically naked and unreasonably sexy, my blood boils.
I’ve always loved to loathe him.
I never planned to need him.
London Parish is my little sister’s best friend, not that it stopped me from falling for her.
Our history is complicated. The only thing we have in common is being godparents to my sister’s three adorable kids—until our lives are changed in one tragic moment.
Now we’re trying to raise the children we love, mourn an unthinkable loss, and fight an undeniable attraction.
My life is already upside-down, and the last thing I need is for old feelings to resurface.
Because I’ll never be able to keep her, no matter how hard I try to hold her close.
Separately, these 2 ladies are AMAZING writers. The kind that can bring you to the point of throwing your Kindle, drinking in excess, needing Xanax and Kleenex. Together….multiple that by a thousand.
Hold You Close follows Ian and London. 17 years ago, London was head over heals in love with her best friend’s older brother. When her date bails on her last minute, Ian agrees to take London to her prom. Just as London thinks all of her dreams are coming true, she sees Ian with another girl and her heart is broken.
Fast forward to the present – London finds herself living directly behind Ian. All of the old feelings are still there, despite years of hiding them and hating him. Ian spends his time flaunting his pool parties and bachelorhood for the world, including London, to see.
When tragedy strikes, Ian is left in a position he never planned for. He owns a night club. He knows club promotion, alcohol orders, and occupancy laws. Minivans, school start times, and sports practices are so far from what he knows. The one person that could help him is the last person he wants to ask for help.
Can old hurts be forgiven once the truth is revealed? Can you find your true love at 17 but not be reconnected until much later in life? Can joy blossom from tragedy?
This book was beyond phenomenal. Ups and down. Tears of joy and tears of pure heartbreak. I cannot say enough good things about this book. You do not want to miss this!!!
