Genre: Romantic Suspense
Series: Against All Odds #2
Source: Received for an honest review.
Naughton’s books are always enjoyable and well written. WAIT FOR ME, the first book in the series was a very touching, inventive love story. In HOLD ON TO ME, I particularly enjoyed the relationship between Simone’s daughter, Shannon, and her lover, Mitch. Mitch never pictured himself a father but is a natural with Shannon. He is at ease with her, enjoys spending time together and misses her as much as Simone when they’re apart. Shannon is equally taken with Mitch.
Following the typical love story guidelines, HOLD ON TO ME starts with the happy couple on the verge of taking their relationship to the next level when all hell breaks loose, literally. While trying to avoid the murderers on Simone’s tail, Mitch and Simone waffle between the most intense, sincere love and the defeatist attitudes that convince them they’ll never find happiness. A series of incredibly scary situations have the couple running for their lives. Their lack of openness with each other threatens their lives and their love.
Naughton’s books are always enjoyable, well-rounded stories. This is no exception though I didn’t find Mitch and Simone quite as gripping as Ryan and Kate from the first book. Naughton remains one of my “must read” favorites.
