Alexaâs bliss is short-lived when an unexpected situation threatens the love she and Julian share. Suddenly, she has to choose whether to STAY and HOLD ON, or run.

They say love conquers all, but can it conquer betrayal from someone who has promised to love you forever?

Hilary Wynne has completely blown me away yet again! This series has quickly become a favorite of mine. I became emotionally attached to these characters in book 1 "Stay". This book was no different. In this book I cried a lot, got so frustrated and then said WTF. Hilary hits you with a twist you don't see coming. â Eye Candy Bookstore
Have you ever woken up one day and said, âTodayâs the day Iâm going to do (insert thing here)?â Well, I did, and the result is my first novel, Stay. I always thought of myself as a decent writer, and then a trip down memory lane through my ninth grade book of poetry confirmed it. I realize that I have always had a romantic side and a way with words. With support from my husband and kids (and an unspoken agreement to leave me alone for a few hours every night), I embarked on this incredible writing journey.
Iâm originally from sunny Southern California and spent my summers in South Florida. I attended college at FSU and received my Masters in New Mexico. I finally settled in the Washington, DC area. My happy place has always been anywhere near the water.
When Iâm not writing, I help run a business with my husband, watch an inordinate amount of sports (my kids play something 365 days a year), indulge my competitive spirit on the tennis court, and spend time with my awesome family and friends.
I am an avid reader, but find my characters feel neglected when I hang out with other authorâs characters for too long. When I do read, historical fiction is my favorite genre. I love traveling and experiencing different cultures, places, and times.
I feel so blessed that my love of books inspired me to finally do something that I forgot I had always dreamed about doing.
My someday has arrived!
Review by Brittany
Julian and Alexa continue their story in book number three.
At the end of Hold On, Julian and Alexa have talked and decided they were going to try again. But thereâs one giant problem that could make or break this relationshipâ¦
Alexa has grown throughout this series and now stands her ground when her and Julian start to argue. She believes in their relationship and wants it to work.
But things come to a crashing halt one morning as Julian was making breakfast.
Imagine your life and everything you know it to be changes in an instant. One sentence, one admittance just breaks it all. The person whom you thought would love you unconditionally turns their back on you and youâre just cohabitating. Thereâs no love, thereâs nothing worth fighting for.
Except Alexa knew things could be better. She stuck around, waiting for Julian to realize that what they have is epic and extraordinary. Will Julian finally come around and realize that love is enough?
AHHH. I LOVE Hilary Wynne. I remember the first time I read Stay. I fell in love with the story, with the characters. I became captivated and enthralled. I was raptured by Julian and Alexa.
In Hold On, Hilary had my heart racing, my butt on the edge of the chair. My knuckles were white from gripping my Kindle so hard. Hilary knew what it would take for the readers to feel suspense.
And she does the exact same thing in Promise Me. Every turn of the page, you wonder if thatâs the page where it all comes out. And then once that happens, you turn each page, hoping itâs the page where Julian realizes heâs being an ass.
I know a lot of people that read Stay and Hold On believed that Lexie was stupid and annoying for running all the time. Well, when you experience what she has and find the strength to stay, let me know how you do it. But thatâs not the point here. In Promise Me, you can tell a HUGE change in Lexie. Sheâs strong, sheâs a fighter. Sheâs grown in so many ways! There were moments where I mutter under my breath âPunch her!â And Lexie, being the strong woman she is, resists the urge and instead makes a witty comeback.
This book is definitely the best out of the three that Hilary has written so far. Itâs suspenseful, definitely steamy and hot, and one that will keep you from sleeping at night. Itâs a definite page turner! I highly recommend this book! You will not want to miss out on the conclusion (or is it?) of Alexa and Julian!
