Summary:
Six years ago, Dewayne Falco's life changed. He lost someone he never expected to lose. Resigned to punish himself for something he felt he could have prevented, he goes through life without getting too close to anyone.

What he didn't expect was for the girl across the street to move back home and remind him of what they both lost: Dewayne's younger brother Dustin. However, when a miniature version of Dustin opens the door to greet him, Dewayne realizes he might not have lost everything after all.

Sienna Roy loved Dustin Falco most of her life. He was the boy next door, the high school basketball star and her best friend. But when his life was cut short, she realized he left a part of himself behind.

Now, she's back in Sea Breeze, thankful to have a home for her and Dustin's son, but not sure if she can ever forgive the people across the street who abandoned her when she needed them the most — The Falcos.

Betrayal, lies, and forbidden attraction might end Dewayne and Sienna's story before it's even begun.


My review:

I've been wanting to read this for such a longtime but I didn't have money to buy it at that time. These past few months were pretty damn stressful for me at school and work. When vacation started I pretty much read half of the unread books on my shelf. Then I received an itunes gift card for Christmas and used that to buy Hold On tight

Before I read this book, I read the sample a few weeks before and I regretted reading it because it just made me want to read the whole thing, but I couldn't because I didn't have money to buy it. Lesson learned. Never read the sample if you don't have money to buy the book. It drove me crazy. 

Because you healed  me. When no one else could.


I really adored Micah, Sienna's son, so damn much. He was so cute and smart I just wanted to play with him all day. I like how he said somethings he wasn't supposed to say. It was adorable. 

I was really looking forward in learning more about Dewayne because in the past few books, he was just a guy who liked to have fun, he was chill, funny and mysterious. But in this book, he was just different. Sure, there was some scenes where he sounded like the Dewayne we know but for the most part, he was just like the other guys. It wasn't a big problem though, I learned to ignore it and just continue on with the story. The thing I really liked about Dewayne is how he really loved his younger brother Dustin, it was really nice to read how he cared about him so much. 

Sienna, at first I really liked her character but as the story progressed, she got a little annoying because it felt like she wanted everyone to like her right away and if they didn't she didn't want them in her life. Like girl, give them some time. Gee.

The story was really good. There was a lot of scenes that made me laugh. However, was it my favorite of the series? No. I felt like everything was a rush. It was happening too fast and I wished there was more. But again, I always want more when it comes to Abbi's books.
