Holding On Reviews
Loved this book. U loved these characters in the first book and they just grow even more on you in this book. I cried and rejoiced right along with them. Some of the writing was over the top but the author definitely knows how to make you feel the emotions in this book.
This is the 2nd book in this series leading on from Hooking Up. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book. [See my review below]Caitlin, what a woman she turned out to be. Having a grandmother that wasn't her blood tie and so mean, Caitlin was a better woman than me to keep on trying to involve her in her life. Walking away, then coming back again, she stood up to her, that is one thing I loved about Caitlin. Her adoring husband and his son Benjie, now, what a pair of male species. I wouldn't have minded a man like that, good father, good husband, very supportive of the people in his life. Maybe his having been married before taught him some things about how to be with women! if he leaves Caitlin, he can come to me!Having lost her adopted parents, she has now found her birth Mother that arrives on the scene in this book. I loved her. The outcome in this 2nd book made me cry, so I had better warn you to get the tissues out.I was gifted this book by the author as an ARC and absolutely adored it. If I hadn't been reviewing books I think I would have missed out on such talent, such 120% storytelling, and a fantastic author. Indie author? REALLY!!! its superb, more like a best seller. HONESTLY.
This was Degarmo's sequel to Hooking Up. It picks up pretty much right where that book left off. It was nice to be able to read the books basically back to back, since I just discovered Degarmo's books. This story centers around Caitlin and discovering and establishing new relationships that we learned about in Hooking Up (I don't like to do spoilers.) This book like the first one has you feeling all of Caitlin's emotions right along with her. I found the characters likeable and cried with them, laughed with them and celebrated with them. I was hoping the book would dip a little more into Ryan's and Caitlin's friends in the book, but perhaps Degarmo is saving them for future books, I hope so!
For me, this was by far the better of the two books.Caitlin and Ryan have got this far, but what is going to happen next? Ryan's vicious ex-wife, his lovely son, and the discovery of Caitlin's own "real" mother make this a really enjoyable read.While Hooking Up is a fun romance, this is far more poignant - and brought me to tears at one stage. But, enough of that because of spoilers.If you want a romance with a twist, one where the two main characters are already a couple, but face some harsh challenges that could pull them apart forever, then this is for you.The story is strong, believable, and draws you in. I finished it within 48 hours, and look forward to the next book by this author.
I've just read the first book Hooking up & went straight into this second one. If a second book can be even better then this certainly was. All the characters are still as loveable. Has the grandmother redeemed herself?? Well you will have to read this fantastic story to find out. I highly recommend you read this story... But it's definetly a good idea to read hooking up first. Received this from author in return for an honest review & I am so glad she did. I certainly hope to read more from this author in the future.
Great book so far ^.^ i love their relationship.
