    Hold Me Tight is the amazing conclusion to Eric and Ivy's beauti

    Hold Me Tight is the amazing conclusion to Eric and Ivy's beautiful story of love, loss, and forgiveness.If you loved the first two books in this series, you will absolutely love this one and will not be able to put this one down. You will love, laugh, and swoon. You will cry. 

    "...because I'm even more determined to bring that light back to his eyes. And I know my love is strong enough to do it."

    The story leaves off right where the last one left off. Eric gave Ivy a harsh ultimatum. One that she did not take lightly. She ends up where she and Eric least expected. But this time apart shows Eric and Ivy that being without each other is just not an option. You feel their yearning for each other. I felt like this was the most heartfelt part of this story. There is no question that Eric and Ivy belong together. Their time apart proves this. This final installment solidifies how much Eric and Ivy are truly meant for each other. Their love knows no boundaries. They love with a love so deeply. 

    "You are my heart now. Whatever happens to you happens to me." 

    Eric Young. You have totally captured my heart.  He is real. He is genuine. And I can completely see why Ivy so easily fell for him. While Eric is by no means perfect, he is perfect for me-I mean Ivy. :) His past alone would give him reason alone to never give his love to another woman again. And his heartache doesn't end. So many secrets and lies are revealed and your heart breaks for Eric. But what does he do? He loved harder. He loves more. He completely surrenders his heart and soul to Ivy. And it's the most beautiful thing. 

    "I'd rather have weeks, days, hours with you happy and content than a lifetime filled with regret."

    If you think you have any idea what is going to happen in this story. You have NO idea. There are so many twists and turns in this story I did not see coming. Hence the reason why you will be reading this in one sitting. Clear your schedule. It's just not possible to put this one down. 

    "When she loves, she loves with her whole heart, giving herself completely, holding nothing back."

    I felt that the writing was a lot stronger in Hold Me Tight. Not that the other two in the series weren't strong, I just felt like the voices were stronger in this one. The characters spoke with more conviction. What I really enjoy about this series as a whole that Faith's characters are real. And with the third installment of this story, her strength  in character development shows. Every single character is connected to the story. You feel for them as much as you feel for Eric and Ivy. 

    "But this woman makes me want to do things I didn't think I was capable of. Her love for me makes me feel like I have no limitations, that I can do anything I set my mind to do because she believes in me with her whole heart."

    As Eric so eloquently describes, his love never wavers for Ivy. It never falters. Their love is the epitome of all consuming soul searching love. Even through pain, and sorrow, Eric's heart always reached out for Ivy. His soul craved hers. Love always prevails. What a beautiful conclusion to this story.

    Every choice has a consequence. Ivy is hiding with Tim who might

    Every choice has a consequence. Ivy is hiding with Tim who might be the father of her true life's baby. Eric is drench in confusion of new information and wondering where Ivy ran off after their fight. This story is true to the Faith Sullivan's style, you think you know the characters, but there is a wrench thrown into the mix that the readers did not see coming. One character you feel sorry for might be the character you might want to strangle.

    This book keeps up the thrills that the first two had set up. Ms Sullivan keeps true to her beloved characters that her readers fell in love with the first two books. Her writing flows, and paints each scene so that the readers are right there in the scene waiting for the next explosion. She does not leave any loose ends, and ties everything up nicely. A book that I would suggest you readers to pick up :)

    Ever since I finished Meant for Me, I've been eagerly waiting for Hold Me Tight to be released...and it's finally here! :D I couldn't wait to read it, and it definitely didn't disappoint! While there was quite a bit of drama for my taste, I did really enjoy it. :) Hold Me Tight was most certainly worth the wait, and I am extremely happy with how everything turned out! The ending was seriously so know that going into it as a trilogy! ;)

    I have to admit that at the beginning of the book I was not a happy camper, and the characters were completely frustrating me. I wanted to shake them, and snap both Eric and Ivy into action. I may have been frustrated, but I was definitely involved...and my emotions had me completely wrapped up in the story. So, even when I wasn't a happy camper...I was still riveted to the story! Thankfully, while the beginning of Hold Me Tight started off a bit rocky, everything eventually came together and I was able to love the story in a way that didn't make me want to shake the characters. :P

    I've always loved Eric and Ivy together, and in Hold Me Tight, this was no exception! I love their chemistry (it's definitely steamy ;D), their banter, and how they both really do make each other better. When they've been apart, they've made some pretty silly decisions, but in Hold Me Tight, it was great to see them finally starting to make "better" choices, and to think before acting...which for Eric, who has a bit of a quick-firing temper, was huge progress, and awesome to see. Most of all, I loved seeing their relationship grow stronger throughout this book, and seeing both of them mature as they did. Hold Me Tight was definitely fantastic for character progression, for Ivy, Eric, and a few of the other characters, too!

    Overall, I really enjoyed Hold Me Tight, and have thoroughly loved getting to read Eric and Ivy's story in the Take Me Now Trilogy! I've loved seeing their relationship grow and all of the characters in these books's been a fantastic reading experience, and I'll definitely have to return to these books and characters again! I would recommend Hold Me Tight, and the Take Me Now Trilogy, to fans who like romances that aren't always perfect, and to fans who love super steamy chemistry that comes with a story packed with quite a bit of drama. :)
