Talia Benson has always been independent, unafraid to go after what she wants, regardless of setback, injury, or failure. But between her father's conditional tuition payments and her mother's nagging concern over her emotional state, Talia's suffocating.
So when Talia meets doctoral student Sean Poole, she can't figure out why she wants him to control her. Why she wants him to boss her around. Why she wants him to hurt her.
Talia learns the hard way that not all control is created equal, and sometimes submitting is the most empowering thing in the world.

This is a great, sexy romance with a lot of heart and well-developed characters. Talia's voice is perfect and she felt so real.
Wow. I one clicked this book without reading even the description and man was I in for a treat. I picked it up on a whim and the first page sucked me in. I couldn't ( and didn't) put this book down. It was sexy and delicious. Even if you don't have the same taste in the bedroom as Talia and Sean, I think there's a lot you can connect too. Halfway through, I was dreading what the drama was going to be. I was expecting it to follow a usual romance pattern but boy was I wrong. This wasn't "drama" or cheating or he said she said this was a legitimate problem and a legitimate journey that Talia needed to go on. I hope to god there's more to their story.
Hold Me Down is sophisticated, deeply emotional, and just wickedly sexy. I tore through it (once and then three subsequent times haha). Talia's journey to figuring who she is and that she's not damaged for wanting what she wants, the interplay of her Jewish faith, her relationships outside Sean, are all deftly handled and totally compelling. And the ROMANCE. I don't know how to phrase "one of the hottest things I've ever read??" (and I read a lottt of romance) in reviewy language but suffice to say, there are one-liners in here that had me REAL GLAD I wasn't reading it on like a public park bench. If you want a book that will keep you up, characters that will stay with you, and legit kill you with sexual tension (and maybe hurt a little. Or a lot ;) ) Hold Me Down is for you. *cracks it open for like the fifth time*)
