Rylan Bradley is perfectly content with her single, thirty-something
life. Love is the last thing on her mind—until she crosses paths with
Wesley Kade. He is handsome, charming, and always there when she needs
someone the most. But there’s a story behind those brown eyes that he’s
not ready to tell. As Rylan and Kade struggle to untangle their feelings
for each other, the reality of their pasts will once again resurface
and threaten to take it all away.
Holding on to Georgia by Courtney Giardina
Sometimes people don’t realize what they are missing in their perfect little world until that something slowly sneaks into your life. Even the strongest and most independent of us need to have a shoulder to lean on, a safe place to land where we are accepted. Rylan thought she was good with her single lifestyle until Kade comes into her life like a knight in shining armor. Still, under his warm and caring façade there is a dark and painful history, one that has scarred his heart and built a wall against intruders. Will Kade and Rylan find a way to heal the losses they have faced? Will the differences in their lifestyles be too much of an obstacle to overcome or will they find this is just what they need to cement a brighter future?
Holding on to Georgia by Courtney Giardina is a heart-felt tale of two people whose dark pasts have shaped their present lives and their fears of closeness. Ms. Giardina allows us to believe in second chances, true love and taking just one more risk with our hearts. She has taken a seedling of emotion and nurtured it into a beautiful tale of love.
I received an ARC edition from Courtney Giardina in exchange for my honest review.
