Review: Hold On To Me by Lucia Franco

John Jackson.

He’s a sweet talking Georgia boy, rough around the edges with an irresistible smile. John sets his sights on the new girl, determined to show her what his small town is about. But she isn’t as accepting as he thought and she rejects him at every turn.

The beauty and boldness of Alyssa Winters stirs John’s blood. She quickly works her way under his skin and becomes a constant in his life – his best friend, his other half. As the attraction between the two friends grows, John wants more.

She pushes, he pulls.

When one reckless night of fun wreaks havoc on John, Alyssa risks it all to ease his pain, giving him the one thing he desires most...her. But John’s sadness runs too deep, the damage, irreparable.

He runs, she falls.

John must work to prove himself. Despite everything, Alyssa is the one person he doesn't want to live without. The stakes are high, and he’s willing to bet it all. Even if it means he’s left to suffer alone.

Wow. Did this book have angst. The push and pull was so frustrating but made you want to read more and more because you had to know how it ended.

Alyssa has a mother that moves to suit her boyfriends. Alyssa was born to her mother who was 16; her father never really being in the picture. They moved up and down the California coast until their last move brought them to Georgia. Her mother vowed this would be their last move.

She stumbles across John, Jace and Ford on her first week their. Still not truly believing her mother she tries to keep John at an arms length but they become so much more without a title.

Circumstances threaten what they have and they fall apart.

But fate has a way of working.

Will they come back together? Can they write past wrongs? Can Alyssa let all her walls done?
