Hold On by Samantha Young
Autumn O’Dea has always tried to see the best in people while her big brother, Killian, has always tried to protect her from the worst. While their lonely upbringing made Killian a cynic, it isn’t in Autumn’s nature to be anything but warm and open. However, after a series of relationship disasters and the unsettling realization that she’s drifting aimlessly through life, Autumn wonders if she’s left herself too vulnerable to the world. Deciding some distance from the security blanket of her brother and an unmotivated life in Glasgow is exactly what she needs to find herself, Autumn takes up her friend’s offer to stay at a ski resort in the snowy hills of Montana. Some guy-free alone time on Whitetail Mountain sounds just the thing to get to know herself better.
However, she wasn’t counting on colliding into sexy Grayson King on the slopes. Autumn has never met anyone like Gray. Confident, smart, with a wicked sense of humor, he makes the men she dated seem like boys. Her attraction to him immediately puts her on the defense because being open-hearted in the past has only gotten it broken. Yet it becomes increasingly difficult to resist a man who is not only determined to seduce her, but adamant about helping her find her purpose in life and embrace the person she is. Autumn knows she shouldn’t fall for Gray. It can only end badly. After all their lives are divided by an ocean and their inevitable separation is just another heart break away…
4 Star Review by Ashley
Fun fact- Hold On is the first thing I've read from Samantha Young. Sheesh I've been missing out! This story may've been a quick read but it was stuffed full of emotion and sexiness.
I really liked Autumn. She was sassy and had a tender heart. It had gotten her into trouble a time or two, especially where men are concerned. Relationships hadn't been kind to her so she was taking a break to regroup. Enter Gray. Talk about a collision when they first meet. That initial encounter had nothing on the second time they met though.
The sparks were there from the start. Gray felt it. He knew it in his bones that Autumn was it for him. She just needed some convincing. When Gray pushed, Autumn pulled- or tried to anyway. She couldn't resist him even when her head said slowdown, her heart knew the score.
Though they wanted the same things, it didn't mean there weren't challenges. And they had more than a few to tackle straight away. But with some patience, a lot of communication and all that love they were able to figure it out.
