Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.

After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.

When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love…

A truly breath catching and heart racing romance! A romantic suspense that will catch your blood on fire! One of my FAVORITE Wicked Lovers novels to date!

“In that moment, it wasn’t enough. He wanted her soul. No, that wasn’t all. He fucking wanted her heart. Her devotion. Her tomorrows.”

No THAT, I can get on board with! If you are familiar with the WICKED LOVERS series by Shayla Black, then you know her alphas are EVERYTHING, and Heath? Well, let’s just say he is EVERYTHING and MORE! He is just so intense, so protective and possessive. He’s primal and just delicious! And he met his match in Jolie Quinn. I absolutely ADORED these two together. It was tentative at first, with so much build-up that when they finally were together, fireworks jumped off of the pages! 

“…when you’re near me, I find it harder to breathe. You make me want. You make me ache.”

GAH! See what I mean! Heath and Jolie are just IT for each other. The chemistry between the two was just amazing and the slow-burn at the beginning had me flipping the pages like a madwoman! Black brings the HEAT, the PASSION, the SUSPENSE like no other! With this being the 12th book in the series, you would think this author would be running out of steam, but not Shayla Black! She just keeps giving us BETTER and BETTER romance, if that’s even possible! HOLDING ON TIGHTER was everything I could have possibly wanted in this series! Shayla Black holds no prisoners in this installment of her popular romantic suspense series, and you will have no choice but to fall in love after the very first chapter!
