“DON’T LET GO is the perfect feel good summer read.”
~ Under the Covers
I always look forward to a Jaci Burton read, so it’s no surprise that I was really excited about DON’T LET GO. The Hope series is one that I always gobble up in one go because I can’t put the books down.
Brady and Megan have gone on a couple setup dates, but Brady is really having none of it. He’s not looking for love or a relationship. He needs to get his head and life together and probably leave town as soon as he has enough money to open up his own motorcycle shop. The death of his brother and the addiction he battled before that has left a mark and quite a bit of guilt on Brady. His parents living in the past doesn’t help either. The last he needs is a woman that he would be no good for. But Megan is perfect for him! She’s kind of plain and uncomplicated, extremely sweet and kind hearted. And deep down Brady is the same as well, she just needs to get through the tough exterior.
I really enjoyed this story! I kept saying, I’ll read one more chapter, and then it was 3am and I had finished the book. Not to be cliche but I didn’t want to let go of this story until I finished it! DON’T LET GO is the perfect feel good summer read. Hot and sexy hero you’ll fall for. Adorable heroine you’ll be rooting for. Cute puppy. Lots of good food. Great chemistry. Bonds of friendship. It had everything I look for in a small town romance!
I do wish we had seen Brady dealing with his past and his issues a little better. These are not things that one can simply and easily get over if they were affecting him so deeply, and I would’ve liked to have seen that explored a bit more. Even though it does take a while for Brady to come around, once it does it felt a bit fast for me. But overall, I think Megan was the perfect catalyst to turning his life around. It wasn’t just about him healing enough to be with someone and comfortable to give himself to a relationship, but also for him to be a part of the community and forge his own bonds of friendship with the men of Hope.
If you’re in the mood for something that will leave you with a smile on your face and that it’s a breeze to read through, then pick up DON’T LET GO. I know I haven’t pulled an all-nighter in a while reading a good and happy book, so this hit the spot for me. Now, I’m ready for the next one Ms. Burton!
