Roseanna’s Satin Sheets Romance Review of Hold Me Together by Felice Fox

Hold Me Together
AUTHOR:  Felice Fox
PUBLISHER:  M. Scribes Press
RELEASE DATE: October 27, 2013
PAGES: 118
BUY LINK: Amazon 

 After boot-stomping all night with every last Cameron man on the ranch, Holly can't wait to get her honeymoon started with her new husband, Gavin. He's her dream come true--smart, rugged and kinky as hell, but the very best part is marrying into his big family; a close-knit, loving clan who take care of each other. She'd never had that. Ever. "Do you take this man...?" was the easiest question Holly ever had to answer.
But when Gavin poses a new, unthinkable question on their wedding night, Holly must choose between the idealized happily-ever-after she'd always dreamed of and something much more than she ever knew she wanted-- or needed. Yet her happiness isn't the only thing put at risk by the unconventional arrangement she finds herself in, and when everything Gavin treasures is threatened, Holly must decide if she can give up the family she'd always wanted for the family that wants her... in every possible way.
Warning: This story may make you squirm like a little roped calf. It is a grit-your-teeth hot romance intended for an adult audience which includes questionable consent and issues of polyamory/open relationships.
Hold Me Together is a novella with a complete happily-ever-after ending and no cliffhanger. It is the first book in a series about the men of Cameron Ranch.

Some may say love is blind while others may put definitions on love. Love is messy, confusing, hard, and grows every day with no set limitations or boundaries.  Everyone has faults, doubts, inner demons to fight.  This book was an epic tale of how messy love can be. How your inner demons, others’ views, limitations or self-doubt can rule your life.  At first I was prepared to not really care for Gavin’s character. He comes across as a little underhanded to highhanded at best. But in reality he has a vision of how he sees love and while it may not fit in a box on the self; he is willing to try to bring Holly over. Holly is so full of doubt and indecision. She is just floored at how Gavin tries to do this. While his method is harsh, I think that is what Holly needed to grow into the woman she became at the end of the book. At times, I was a little fearful that the e-ink from my kindle would permanently melt off while reading.  Talk about explosive chemistry some of the characters had.  Each character was developed to be so different yet the same as the others. It made interesting dialogue and interactions. I love the growth and strength each character developed near the end of the story. I like that there was a happy for now at the end. I could tell that while everything worked out, the story is not nearly over.  No dreaded cliffhangers in this one. I look forward to reading and learning more in upcoming books.
