Two fleeting smiles.
A dare that will change my life.
That’s all it takes to send me plummeting into the arms of the mysterious Holt Hamilton. Behind his crystal blue eyes is a secret, one that screams danger but calls to me anyway.
My name is Saige Phillips.
I never walk away from a dare.
My #1 favorite thing in a book is when the guy chases the girl. Call me old fashioned but I want my Hero's so enamored with the heroine that the pursue them relentlessly. Nothing makes me happier! I also loved the mystery as the story unfolded. Holt knew more about Saige than what he was letting on and I wanted to know the secret he was keeping. The only thing that kept this book from being perfect for me was Saige's constant pushing Holt away, but then it also showed how much Holt was willing to do to make her his. I really enjoyed this.
You need Holt!
I'm at a loss for how to write this review. Lets start with OMG YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE!!!
I didn't know what to expect when I first began reading but I quickly found myself consumed by Holt Hamilton. Sexy, enigmatic, self-confident, take charge and get what you want man. It has been a bit since I have read about a man who has all of these qualities. He is sweet, attentive and always ready to fight for Saige. I mean **Swoon**.
Saige Philips is a girl looking to achieve her dream and she has definitely found it in her dream job at Jackson-Hamilton Aviation. Hard working, smart and determined to get above her demons, Saige left the quiet and peaceful North Dakota, for the hustle and bustle of Chicago. Now enter her co-workers a night club and some drinks. Saige is dared to ask Holt Hamilton (her boss) to go out for drinks which to her surprise turns out to be so much more.
Caught up in this whirlwind romance Saige is afraid things go too fast but can't deny the power and hold that Holt has over her. I loved every minute of the ride. There is a bit of everything in this book. Sadness, grief, happiness, weird guy, past demons, love, sexy times and of course all of that mixed with Holt and you pretty much don't need much else.
I have followed Rebecca's writing since she first started and this woman's writing has manifested itself and leaves me in awe every single time. I love how her confidence has grown and the leaps she takes with each book. I don't know why she enjoys making people cry at about 1-2% of her books but she does. Time and again Rebecca has shown her skills and with this book it's no different. I could go on for hours why you need to get this book, but honestly I think you should read it because it's well written and Holt will melt your panties and heart. I mean he even has his own hashtag
Loved this book!
This was the first book I've read by this author and I couldn't put it down. This story was one of such heartbreak and such pain. Saige has suffered such tragic loss in her life and she has never been able to move on. Holt never expected to fall in love so deeply with Saige and he knows that if she finds out his secret that she will walk away from him. Holt is a character that I found myself loving to the bitter end. This is a man who has everything, but loves so completely. He is kind and completely vulnerable to Saige. I loved him. Saige can't let herself love Holt. In order to move on with her future, she has to bury the past. This was such a powerful story about letting go of the past in order to have a future. I was drawn into the story and the characters and absolutely loved it!
