She loves me. She loves me not.

When Ivy walks out, Eric can't help feeling betrayed. Unwilling to put her at risk, he values her safety above all else. By refusing to compromise, he's blindsided when she moves in with a man who's already stolen so much from him.

I love you. You love me not.

    FINALLY! I felt like I had waited FOREVER to read this book! But let me tell you...it was TOTALLY worth the wait!

    This series has been full of ALL THE CRAZY, in the best kind of way! When I finished, I immediately said this:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending to this series!!! It was all I could have hoped for, and more! As ever, Faith throws in all sorts of twists and curves you won't see coming, and it's fantastic!

    I know, I say this on pretty much every review of a book written by Faith, but she is seriously a cliffhanger and curveball mastermind! I was SO anxious to finally read the end of Ivy and Eric's story, and when I finally got my hands on it (well, or at least my eyeballs), I was biting my nails the whole time, hoping and praying things would all work out for everyone. There are some MAJOR bombshells dropped in this final installment, and I'm pretty sure everyone will be horrified by a couple of the characters in this story. But just keep reading, you will not be disappointed! (And believe me, I came into reading this with some crazy-high expectations, and not only were they met, but they were exceeded in every way!)

    Eric is a yummy as ever in this book...seriously, he is ALL man. If I had it my way, it would be ME with Eric, instead of Ivy. ;) He is also learning (the hard way in my opinion) the importance of communication in relationships (notice the plural!), both the speaking AND the listening. (And perhaps learning which parts of his body he should be communicating with.) And Ivy is really learning how to balance being independent, being in a relationship, and hopefully soon being a mother, even if she had a crappy example for parents growing up. It has been so amazing to watch both of them grow throughout their story, both individually, and in their relationship.

    I think, scratch that, I KNOW there are a lot of readers out there that will be able to relate to the parts of the story dealing with Eric and Ivy's baby. I have a few friends that have dealt with similar situations, and it's not easy for anyone, but Eric and Ivy are muddling their way through it all. It's hard to say, along the way, whether or not Eric and Ivy are making the right choices...you'll have to decide for yourself it was worth it when you get to the end of their story.

    I want SO MUCH to tell you all the amazing, crazy, aweful, fantastic things that happen in this book, but I don't want to spoil it for you! JUST GO BUY IT!

    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.

    I have been a fan of Faith Sullivan's Take Me Now series from the beginning. This series is darker than Sullivan's other series, with a definite villain: Lauren, who has a lot of hate and murderous intent coiled up like a murderous snake inside of her. And Ivy, Eric's true love, is the primary object of Lauren's vitriol. Lauren wants Eric for herself and will stop at nothing to obtain him.

    All throughout this series, I've thought that Lauren's jealousy, greed, and envy were what drove her to such horrible actions. But, I learned her motivation for the things she does, in this book. There's much more than meets the eye with Lauren, and she morphed from a one-dimensional villain to a character that while I could not approve of her actions, I could certainly understand them. I love it when authors make me identify with the "bad guys" and Sullivan does that with aplomb in Hold Me Tight.

    As in the first two books in this series, Hold Me Tight is full of chemistry between Ivy and Eric. Their relationship has grown as a result of separation and difficult live events, though, so it was neat to see their relationship evolve. I loved the tender moments between the two, especially with regard to Ivy's pregnancy.

    One of my favorite things about this series are the supporting characters. There are so many great minor characters, many with intertwining storylines. Sullivan draws them all together and there is closure for each character in the series---not just the main characters.

    Throughout this entire series, Ivy has been compared to Eric's first love, Cassidy. Ivy feels that she'll never measure up to Cassidy. I always pitied Ivy for that fact, and hoped that she'd feel secure enough in their relationship to stop comparing herself to Cassidy. Well, I got my wish, and more, with the way the past unfolded in this story. It was so gratifying to find out what Cassidy was really like!

    Hold Me Tight was the strongest book of the Take Me Now series, in my opinion. It had the most drama, a great pace, and so much buildup to the conclusion of the story. I loved every page of this book, and I'm so glad that Faith Sullivan provided so much great closure for the characters I've come to love. If you're new to Faith Sullivan's work, I highly recommend her books!

    I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. The is the conclusion of Eric and Ivy's story and it was absolutely perfect. At the end of Meant For Me (book 2) Ivy leaves Eric thinking that Lauren was going to help her but as usual Lauren has other things in mind. She still wants Eric and wants Ivy out of the way at any cost. Eric can't believe Ivy left and went to Lauren for help. Why does everything have to revolve around Lauren, because that is how Lauren lives her life and she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. How many times will Lauren threaten Ivy's baby before someone finally says enough? Will Ivy go back to Eric? Will they learn the truth about Cassidy? Will Eric forgive Tim once he learns the truth? This story is full of love, pain, deceit, lies and friends you can count on. It will have you crying and laughing. So sit back and enjoy the ride that Faith will take you on in the fantastic series. I loved it and you will too.

    Hold Me Tight by Faith Sullivan 




    Faith Sullivan has once again blown me away with the twists and turns in the conclusion to the series Take Me Now.  I couldn't put the book down needing to know how all the characters fit together.  What was it that Lauren has over everyone that makes them do her bidding, and why is she so hell bent in destroying everyone's life just to be on top.  I was so entranced while reading this novel.  Faith does an amazing job in keeping you captivated with the characters lives and the struggles that each one goes through to find not necessarily happiness but "peace"of mind.  




    Ivy and Eric are struggling to find a common ground when it comes to their unborn baby.  With the ultimatum that Eric forces on Ivy, she must take matters into her own hands and side with the devil herself.  Unfortunately, Lauren didn't count on Tim finding a conscience and liking Ivy.  Lauren is struggling to keep truth from getting out and ruining her plan.  Ivy and Eric are just trying to protect their love and their baby, but will it be enough.  




    How far will Lauren go to keep the secret buried from Eric?  Will Eric and Ivy have their happily ever after with the birth of their child?  




    Sullivan has once again broken the mold on an incredible love story that truly shows the struggles and heartaches of a couple just wanting to have their HEA.

    I've reviewed the other two books in this series before, and the last book in the Take Me Now series was an utterly amazing wrap-up of this series. I'm a huge fan of Sullivan's work and I will absolutely read everything she writes, because not only is she a great writer, but I love the complex and real characters she creates. I can't stop rooting for them! Sullivan doesn't shy away from creating characters who aren't perfect, which I find refreshing and makes her stories so real and easy to identify with. Even in this book, I actually found myself feeling sorry for Lauren, who has clearly gone 'round the bend on the sanity street, but once we get a picture of what's going on in her life, it makes so much more sense. Not that it makes it okay...but I don't want to get into spoilers :) Lets just say it's quite a ride throughout this whole book and I found myself gripping my kindle with both hands a few times (for very different, er, reasons), as well as reaching for the tissue box more than once. I will say this: I never would have thought of a pocket knife in that way...and definitely will have a certain scene come to mind forever whenever I see one now! Anyhow, verdict: absolutely a must-read series, and I can't wait to read the next book Sullivan puts out!

    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 satisfying...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 progress...it'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. :)
