Can't Let Go by Jessica Lemmon Can't Let Go is a PREQUEL novella to Hard to Handle, a "before" the happily ever after...

A LOVE IN THE BALANCE NOVELLA

AN INSTANT SPARK
Sadie Howard would never admit there's such a thing as love at first sight, but she can't deny the connection between her and sexy Adonis Aiden Downey. She also can't deny she loves to kiss him-his mouth might be his most precious asset. Despite every promise to herself not to get involved any deeper than a first date, she can't keep from seeing more of Aiden . . . in more ways than one.

Aiden Downey had no idea the hot blonde from the club would trigger his protective, gentle nature, but the moment she drops her guard and he sees the real Sadie Howard, he's a goner. When a family crisis puts the brakes on their budding romance, can Aiden find a way to hold on to her? Or will he lose the best thing in his life just as quickly as he found her? 25,000 words.


MY REVIEW:


 Can’t Let Go now it all makes sense.  I read Hard to Handle and felt like there was just something missing from the story.  So, (Ms. Lemmon’s publicist saw my review and sent me this book to help me connect with no review required.  Which I would do review anyway good or bad, that is who I am but in a nice way if I can.) I just could not put my finger on it.  Novellas are not always a good idea and for sure in this story for sure.  At least as far as I am concerned.  It held all the real facts to the connection to the emotions needed to come to liking both of these characters.  I feel it was the total “Ah Hah” moment for me that was needed to get that special feeling for the book after.

     Sadie Howard is a woman who has been dumped and hurt by men in her past and just can’t trust.  Aiden Downey is a man who has just gotten a divorce from his wife of two years, his best friend who did his wife, and who was his partner in the very successful business.  So, they are both not in a place where they are looking for long term relationships just one night stands.  It starts out that way but they both figure out very fast that their hearts figure out that once they start talking which neither are used to doing that what seemed like 5 minutes was hours.  After 2 dates they felt love for each other.  Life as they know changes for them.  Ride the roller coaster to see how they come to a stop and see where their loops take them.  Hold on for it will be a fun, sad and bumpy ride.

MY REVIEW:


   FiancĂ© by Friday what a fun action filled love story. Not only did it have a small amount of erotica.  That it seems, all love stories are required to have in order to keep to audience interested these days, but it had mystery and suspense too.

     This is a much later review but one that I have to say was earned.  Because the publisher, through netgalley.com, archived this book, had to get it from the library so needed to wait for it.

     This author although was not like the other authors I have worked with, helpful, she is a very good writer in her own right.  She kept me entertained and thinking as to how this would or could end up.  I loved how the secret longing between Gwen and Neil had gone on for so long for each of them.  Then how it finally just came to a head in the face of danger.  That through it all they worked together as a well-oiled team and knew each other well and trusted each other which surprised even them.

     You see Gwen Harrison is the daughter of an English duke and Neil Mac Bain is her Bodyguard here in America where she now lives. Running her sister-in-law’s matchmaking firm. Where she dreams of Neil being her perfect match.  Everyone knows but him. 

     Neil is retired marine, but his past does not stay in the past when old ghost come to haunt him.  Using Gwen as the bait to draw him out.  Then is when he realizes that he may have been wearing more of his feelings on his sleeves then he needed to be.  He needed to keep Gwen out of his crossfire to keep her safe from the ghosts that was now hunting him but going to use her. He has to keep her close.  Is in her bed to close?  She doesn’t think so. :0 )~   

     You will enjoy this I am sure.
