Product Description

The sizzling, second installment in the Alexa Reed series.

Beautiful and successful Alexa Reed has dark secrets in her past that prevent her from trusting in love. Her fears start to fade when she meets charismatic, South Beach hotel owner, Julian Bauer, who is willing to put his extravagant playboy lifestyle behind him just to be with her.

He’s a man who likes a challenge.

Alexa’s newfound bliss is still fragile as she struggles to deal with the trauma of her ex-boyfriend’s death. Is Julian's love for Alexa strong enough to heal her emotional scars and convince her their love is real?

Alexa is not the only one with secrets and what’s to come threatens to destroy their future together. Now it’s Julian who needs Alexa more than ever. Will she be able to hold on?

Hold On is Book 2 of the Alexa Reed series and is the follow-up from the hugely popular, Stay.

Praise for Stay (Book 1 of the Alexa Reed series)

“I started this book as soon as the kids left for school and could not put it down. When forced to put it down I was thinking about it and wondering what would happen next. I finished it before I went to bed, I just could not stop reading.”
Charlotte Lynn, A Novel Review

“I honestly have no words for this book. It has left me speechless. It is a definite six stars on my five star scale.”
Brittany Alexander, Brittany’s Book Blog

5.0 out of 5 stars Holding....my breath! 14 January 2015
By RorymLampley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Life is full of ups and downs. Just when you think Julian and Alexis have gotten to a good spot in their relationship, life throws them more obstacles to hurtle over. In the second book of of the Alexis Reed Series titled Hold On that's excactly what I was doing....Holding On and holding my breath!
After Alexa finally can admit to herself and to Julian that she totally loves him and he is "her person" and all she really wants to do is "Stay" the roller coaster that these two call life rears its ugly head and the drama is far from over. I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't give details but I will say these two go through a few things that tests the love that they have for each other. The question will be, are Alexa and Julian strong enough to Hold On to each other and the all consuming love they have found in one another or do they give up and walk away?
I cried in this book. I cried for Alexis and for Julian. There are different types of crying. The worst type of crying is the silent one. The one when everyone is asleep. The one where you feel it in your throat, and your eyes become blurry from the tears. My heart broke for Alexis when she had to finally tell her friends and Julian about Brady. Then there is the one where you just want to scream. I was so frustrated at Alexis and her stubborn but independent ways that I really wanted to scream. Then I experienced the cry where you have to hold your breath and grab your stomach to keep quiet. I did this for Julian when he found out about the new addition that was going to be a part of his life. There were times I cried where I felt like I couldn't breath. Then I cried for both Alexis and Julian when I realized that the person that meant the most to you, which in their case was each other....might just be gone!
Life doesn't always hand you the happy ever after that we all dream of. Sometimes, living happy ever after is a choice you make, and sometimes you have to live happy with what you have, not what you thought you would have. What kind of choice will Alexis and Julian choose to have? I can't wait to find out in Book 3!
Hilary Wynne is an amazing writer! I knew from reading Stay that I was going to be hooked forever! This series is one that you will read and want to read again because you love it so much! I look forward to future books from this author! Ms. Wynnes writing talent surpasses many in the writing world. You will not regret reading her books!

5.0 out of 5 stars More drama, drama, drama....the makings of a good book 11 May 2015
By Irene R - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Oh my dear lord.....
First let me say that Hold On picks up right where Stay left off. I always say I love a book where there isn't a major time gap.
That being said...Oh my lord!!
I thought the first book was a roller coaster of a ride. Boy was I wrong on so many levels.
Although Julian and Alexa's friends know about her and Brady. It is now Julian's turn to hurt Alexa.
Julian being the playboy he WAS didn't know that the news he was going to give Alexa would rip them apart.
Drama, drama, drama. You thought you were in high school.
Alexa moves up in her workplace. With that she works with a friend of Julian's family Serena. Serena loves throwing things in Alexa's face. I swear she should of slapped her the first time she ran her mouth. Alexa knows how to hold her own. However when Julian tells her about this 1 night, the night that changed his world. Alexa can't take it anymore. The mere thought makes her sick literally.
She has the support of her family and close friends.
In the end things well..................you need to read the book for that part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Hell! Thank you Hilary Wynne! 12 November 2014
By Crystal G. Smith - Published on Amazon.com

Okay, so I reviewed the first part and after leaving that review, I immediately purchased the second part. Amazing! As mentioned in my previous review, there are similarities to other series, those that I love, however, I equally love this one as well. The more I learn about Alexa's past, the more I feel for her. That girl has been through some terrible things, but she has been able to play the cards that life has dealt her very well and then, the past that Julian has had, is one very dear to my heart. Though so of the situations of said past, is reversed, I have lived that. And Luke, poor Luke. I feel for him, terrible heartache. If Luke would have jumped on the opportunity to take things further while he had the chance, he may not be feeling what he is now. A lesson is reinforced here, you never know what you have until it's gone. Take the opportunity to tell the ones you love today, because there may not be that chance come tomorrow.

I have never, and I mean never, read or written a novel with so well developed characters. I often find places that need to be fleshed out, however, this story had seriously no flaws! It is absolutely amazing. Ms. Wynne is able to grab your attention and keep it throughout the entire book. Hell, she had mine from word one and now, I am left with only this, I need more. Oh, and I still want Julian in my bed. : )
5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating emotional romantic read 22 July 2015
By meghan varner - Published on Amazon.com

As I mentioned in the previous post I started reading this book immediately upon finishing the first Alexa Reed book. In this book we now know more of Alexa Reeds mystery, but not all of it. Something is still unknown and it is underlying much of this story. However while I am reviewing this book I am more focused on the hurdles that Julian faces in this story. He shares his history, his similarities and his new concern in this story that might mess up their relationship. I absolutely love the way HW draws us into the emotions of the situations, characters and events. I cringed during some scenes, laughed, cried, pretty sure I went no no no during a certain set of decisions, etc.

I said book one was a roller coaster, but it must have been just the first loop because my lord this story is one "shut the front door" to "what the what" moment on each page. We have extreme romance, we have huge self-doubt, an epic melt down, a disastrous set of decisions, a shocking (but still somehow predictable) event and more all in this story. Additionally, this book, in fact this series, has some very intense sexual scenes so this would be for mature audiences. However, I would not say it is an erotic story/love story because while much of the strength of their relationship comes down to their draw to each other and that draw or intense need for each other is part of what strengthens their ability to keep working on their relationship it is not the sole focus of this story. This story delves into how relationships need trust, how it can be hard for people to trust, how everyone has insecurities, the importance of communication and more..along with some very sexy scenes!

Normally I do not discuss the cover or title of a book, but I feel I must for this story and series. They covers are hot and really fitting for this story. I also love the titles and how it plays into the theme of the stories and where their relationship currently is and ends up at by the end of the story!

I enjoyed book 1, thought book 2 was even better and I can't wait to read book 3 and see what happens with Alexa and Julian...fingers crossed we are still getting a happy ending for them because they are some of my favorite literary characters that I have come across in a long time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Drama with a little bit of.......well drama!! 11 February 2016
By Kris Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So after I read Stay and realized that it was a part of a running series, I immediately purchased Hold On. I love how complex Lexie and Julian are. They are as close to real life characters as I can imagine. Crazy and all! In the first book we get caught up pretty much all in Lexie drama and in Hold On, Julian decides to throw some of his own in. I really enjoy the fact that he's not quite as perfect as he seemed to be in the first book. Makes the characters more relatable to me. I will say that both Lexie and Julian show their "mean" sides in Hold On. But I do truly love that they are so complex and raw and.......human-like? as it makes the story that much more realistic.
