Title: Hold on (The ‘Burg Series, #6)
Author: Kristen Ashley
Rating: 4 Teacups / 3 Handcuffs


Since she was young, Cher Rivers knew she was not the kind of girl who got what she wanted. A girl who could hope. A girl who could dream. She knew a happily ever after just wasn’t in the cards for her.

In love for years with the last bastion of the ‘burg’s eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman.

The Merrick Family is known for loving deep. So when Cecelia Merrick was murdered, it marked the Merricks in a way none of them recovered. Both Cecelia’s children found love. Both turned their backs on it. But Garrett “Merry” Merrick knew in his soul the woman he divorced years ago was the one for him.

Until the night when Cher took Garrett’s back and things changed. The Merrick family loves deep. They also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, Garrett sees the woman who truly is for him and he goes after her.

Our Thoughts:

  • We were eagerly awaiting Cher and Merry’s path to an HEA, and this novel was the perfect end to an awesome series.
  • This novel wrapped up the Dennis Lowe storyline, which started the series, by delving into the impact those events had on Cher and her quest to overcome the trauma.
  • We love that their relationship grew out of a longstanding friendship. They had a solid foundation to start with and their love grew quickly after their steamy night together.
  • Typically these alpha males are all about the slam bam thank you mam. But we loved how Merry stuck around. That’s the hallmark of a gentleman.
  • We love their honesty with one another was refreshing. Neither of them are play games.
  • Who wouldn’t fall in love with a man, who buys a house just for her, her son and their future family.
  • Merry’s got a lot of class and those suits are super sexy.
  • Cher was a great heroine. Independent. Resilient. And had a huge heart.
  • We love Ethan! This is our official petition to get the story of his HEA.
  • Made of amazing ending! It really sets it up for some new exciting series.

Happy Reading!
