Virtual Tour - Hard to Hold (The Hold Series, #2) by Arell Rivers


Hard to Hold
The Hold Series, #2
by Arell Rivers
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

From The Book Junkie Reads . . . Hard to Hold (The Hold Series, #2) . . .

No One to Hold brought on the drama and allow for it all to build with each new step. Now, Cole and Rose face more of what life had to throw their way. This second installment picks up where the first left off. There are no bumps or hiccups. Things run smoothly together. It was easy to just keep going like there was no pause in time between releases.  My page turning. My emotions. My nail biting. My need to move forward continued on with this one. I wanted and I got. There was so much more to the characters this time around. Their fierceness, ferocity, determination, strength, and more came through with each new paragraph, new page turned, new chapter completed. Hold on my darlings you are in for one hell of a ride up to the cliff. There will be one more installment in Cole and Roes's story. 

The drama continues on with job problems, mistakes made, and a very deranged, psycho out there stalking their every move. The twist and turns are still worth every paged turned. This time around things are at a higher value. Rose has to move on with her life and get things back on track for her. She had to decide if Cole would be worth the heartache that would surly follow him every where he goes. 

The characters here most certainly make for the story-line. The richness of them. The depth. The obstacles that put in the way of Rose and Cole. The fact that life plays out for both Rose and Cole allows you to have a more emotional connection to the two of them. 

Don't worry about the cliffhangers. Read them all back to back and you will get yourself one serious read that will be so far off the charts. This was what you will call the primer for the ending. Things are getting hotter, more dangerous, and possible more real than either Cole or Rose could have realized. Pick up book two and three and just enjoy the emotional twists and turns of Cole and Rose's relationship.

Author Info
For as long as Arell Rivers remembers, she has been lost in a book. During her senior year in college, she picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was hooked on romance.

She started writing her first novel, No One to Hold, because the characters were screaming at her to do so. The story started coming out in Arell’s dreams and attacking her in the shower, so she took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Arell has what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to discovering her passion for writing romance, she practiced law, was a wedding and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. She lives with a very supportive husband and two mischievous cats. When not in her writing cave, Arell can be found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or hitting the beach.

She hopes you enjoy her stories about driven men, strong women and the passions that ignite!
