Title: Hold On
Series: The Burg #6
Author: Kristen Ashley


Since she was young, Cher Rivers knew she was not the kind of girl who got what she wanted. A girl who could hope. A girl who could dream. She knew a happily ever after just wasn't in the cards for her. 

In love for years with the last bastion of the 'burg's eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman. 

The Merrick Family is known for loving deep. So when Cecelia Merrick was murdered, it marked the Merricks in a way none of them recovered. Both Cecelia's children found love. Both turned their backs on it. But Garrett "Merry" Merrick knew in his soul the woman he divorced years ago was the one for him. 

Until the night when Cher took Garrett's back and things changed. The Merrick family loves deep. They also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, Garrett sees the woman who truly is for him and he goes after her. 



Hold On begins when Merry finally gets the news that his ex-wife is officially moving on. As he drinks his sorrows away with his good friend Cher at the bar things take a turn neither expected. Cher has had a hell of a life so far. A lot is just dumb luck, the other is her being not so smart. And now, she's working her butt off to provide for her son, and give him a good life. She's also been in love with Merry for the past five years, but chose to bury it. And after something shifts in their relationship she's afraid of what's going to happen next. 

Both of these two people who have lived through a different kind of hell and back are trying to work through their baggage to find their happy. But it might not be so easy for either of them. When ghosts from the past keep coming back and making their life even harder. 

I adored Cher. She was the perfect heroine. She's a complete badass while also being a good woman and sweet. The relationship between her and her son was also something beautiful to witness. And I adored how she was with Merry, then how she was with the rest of the guys as well. 
And Merry, he was great as well. It was really nice to see his side of things that Rocky went through, and to see him fight for the woman he wanted. It was beautiful. 

This was a wonderful conclusion to the Burg Series!
