REVIEW: Hold on Tight by Serena Bell


Fighting for his country gave Jake Taylor’s life shape and meaning. Now as an injured war hero he struggles to find purpose, until he runs into the gorgeous woman he dated briefly—and disastrously—before being deployed eight years ago. Turns out Jake doesn’t just need to figure out how to be a civilian . . . he also needs to learn how to be a dad.

Eighteen, pregnant, and totally lost, Mira Shipley couldn’t track down the soldier who fathered her child, so she put college on hold and focused on making a good life for her son. Now she’s determined to be something more than Sam’s mom, her parents’ daughter, or Jake’s girl—as hot as she finds her old flame’s take-charge attitude in and out of bed. Soon Mira and Jake realize that their passion didn’t disappear when Sam was conceived—and that instead of running away, sometimes it’s better to hold on tight.

I really enjoyed this book. It felt raw and real. I love Mira! She’s strong, smart, and brave, even if she didn’t always give herself that credit. I liked Jake, but thought he needed a good smack upside the head on occasion. I also loved that there weren’t any villains or anything, it was just two people and their story. The only complaint that really stood out to me was the “reptilian brain” reference and its frequency. Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed it and just could not get enough of its authenticity.

Bottom Line:

Hold on Tight is a fast paced, sweet, emotional read that will get you invested from page one!
