#NewRelease + #BookReview | Hold You Close by Melanie Harlow & Corinne Michaels


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

Book Review


London Parish and Ian Chase can't be in the same room together. They fight like cats and dogs. It didn't matter that London is Ian's sister best friend. No. They just can't stand each other. But that was not always the case. Because London had been in love with Ian in the past, and Ian chose to break her heart. 

But when a tragedy strike and they were both left with three amazing kids and no idea what to do with them, they had to present a united front and try to be their for them. Their lives just turned upside down, not just because of the new responsibility, but the fact that they need to work together. All of the time. Well, most of it anyway.

She didn't plan of risking her heart once again. But spending time with Ian and the kids - she just couldn't help it. Will London give it another chance? Or will she forever hide in her hate? 

What do I expect? This book is co-written by authors who are known to give you all those emotions and break your hearts. This one makes no difference. I am completely in love with this book, and every characters in it. Ian might be a jerk, but he did things for a reason. Reason that he thought was for the best. London - I like her determination to do anything, including hating Ian. But when it comes to the kids - they always come first. I can't blame her for protecting her heart as he did a number on her. Although, I love the fact that she gave him a chance again. The kids - omg. They are just so adorable. I love Chris' sensitivity, Morgan's old soul - and Ruby, she's a sweetheart.

But probably the thing I love most about this book are the letters Sabrina have for both. It was funny, but you can't probably help but shed a few tears. 

This book is a combination of cuteness, steam, romance, feels, and a whole lot of entertaining banter between our main characters.
