Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



This is an emotional epilogue novella of one of my all time favorite duets!!
The All of Me duet was one of the best, and most emotional, stories I’ve ever read and reading this epilogue was a heart-twisting, but perfect piece of the pie I didn’t know I was missing.

As a parent, you truly believe you are doing the best for your child. I know the best intentions are always in the front of my mind when it comes to my own children so I know when it came to Vivian and Dillon’s hard won love story, it was also front and center for them.

The hard part of being a parent is never knowing what the ramifications will be on the decisions you make. Every stroke of a butterfly’s wings makes the slightest change in an outcome, at least that is what they say…Bodie and Easton are living products of the choices their parents made years before, but as parents all we see is the beauty of those choices, but as the child in any family…well, life always looks very different. Especially when you are a teenager.

Siobhan never fails to wring every last drop of emotional wreckage out of me, which I absolutely love. I’m soooooooo happy that this novella exists, even with all the hard and twisty turns it took. For the best enjoyment Hold Me Close needs to be read after reading the All of Me duet.


Sons pay for the sins of their fathers…

Bodhi and Easton Lancaster O’Donoghue have grown up sheltered from the truth. Until it’s time for their parents to reveal what happened and how it shaped the events that came later.

Bodhi is quiet. An intelligent, introspective boy who hides his pain deep inside. Shattered by the harsh reality of the past, he spirals into a dark place where no one can reach him.

Easton loves his brother fiercely and has always been there for him. Despite his own grief and confusion, he tries his best to support Bodhi—even if he seems determined to push everyone away.

Vivien and Dillon knew this moment would come. Yet nothing prepared them for the massive fall-out. As Bodhi retreats, and Easton struggles, they fight hard to keep their family together.

Before history repeats itself and they suffer more devastating loss.He didn’t find peace on the beach. He found Reyna. A woman on the run. His family took her under their wing, but he wasn’t so quick to trust the woman with a boat-full of secrets. A gorgeous roommate that surprised him at every turn was the last thing he needed.

It was impossible for them to deny the sparks igniting between them. As they get lost in their passion, a killer lurks waiting to strike and take everything away.
