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.
This book was excellent. The author did an amazing job getting the emotions through the pages and into my heart. I could feel all of the ups and downs that Jake and Mira were going through individually as well as together.
It is not very often that you see books that can hold some truth such as going to war and coming back without a leg. That is a real life thing and I am glad that the author made this book realistic. The pain and struggles that Jake went through were very real and I appreciated that.
This book was romantic and heart wrenching at the same time. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and I would recommend it.
