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 Even better than the 1st book in this series 17 May 2014
By Lynn P - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved the first book in this series so I didn't know how Hold On could compete. Let me just say, this book is even better than the first book. I cannot wait to see what will happen in book three. I honestly couldn't put this book down. Five stars for the Alexa Reed Series!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was less running... 14 August 2014
By Lisa - A Risque' Affair Book Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book continues with Alexa and Julian's rocky relationship. When they are together, everything just fits... but Alexa has a hard time no letting her past dictate her future. Can she stop running in time to realize that Julian is 'the one'?

I absolutely LOVED book 1, but I just didn't connect with this book in the same way. Alexa and her running got to be a little too much. There are only so many times that Julian can sweep in and collect her broken pieces before it becomes tedious. Then when Julian needs the same respect and needs Alexa to stand by his side, she runs again. We get it, when things get tough... she runs.

If not for Julian, I am sad to say that I might not have finished this book. He is everything that a book boyfriend should be. You can't help but swoon at his interactions with Lexie. He always does and says the right thing at the perfect time.

I was hoping the 'Luke' storyline would be a little more, but it wasn't. Maybe he'll be back in book #3?

I'm clearly in the minority with my rating of this book. I'm giving it between 3 and 3.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional rollercoaster! 23 August 2014
By Whitney McGregor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
4.5 stars

I literally just closed my e-reader after finishing Hold On. And while I'm having trouble processing the roller coaster of emotions I'm still feeling, I know I just read a great book.

I can sum up this book with one word. Drama (and really, that should be Lexie's middle name). This is a pretty long book and a lot happening. Julian and Lexie's relationship is very fragile and despite the work both of them put into it, there are still hurdles to overcome. Julian's past catches up with him in this book and the results rock Lexie's world. Just when they are in a great place, her world starts to fall apart all over again. And despite Julian's love, it's clear these two have a long way to go before they can get their happily ever after.

I'm not going to ruin anything with spoilers so just prepare yourself to laugh, cry, feel the urge to slap every single character at least one and try not to break your kindle!

After reading book one, I was so in love with this story and these characters. The few problems with the author's writing style were easily overlooked because Julian and Lexie just reeled me into their world. I am please to report that book two in the series shows an improvement in the author's writing style. It's less choppy and flows much better. It's still not perfect, perhaps a little too descriptive at times but I can tell a difference.

Julian is a big reason why I fell in love with this series. He's so perfect, it makes me want to cry. He's hot, sexy, and loyal but yet he's actual not 'perfect'. He pushes Lexie and they drive each other crazy but these two were meant to be together. Off the charts chemistry here! Hilary does a great job with the sex scenes and there are plenty of them but there's also a story that will tug at your emotions.

Lexie is completely neurotic and I love her. She drives me nuts but deep down she's a great person and just has a lot of issues to work on. Yes, there is more of her 'running' and while I thought that would annoy me, it really didn't. I am very glad that by the end of this story, her character has made pretty big strides in regards to her insecurity and past dealing with the death of her ex-boyfriend.

And Luke... oh Luke. I loved him, I hated him and despite everything I love him again and my heart aches for him. He makes a few appearances in this book but I won't ruin anything regarding his storyline. I don't think we've heard the last of him though.

The end is not a cliffhanger, however, there are definite unresolved problems to lead into book three. I am anxiously waiting and I can't wait to get Julian back on my kindle. Because seriously... sigh. And if Luke doesn't get a resolution in book three, I really hope Hilary will write a book for him as well. Very difficult to tell where the storyline is going to go at this point which just makes book three all the more exciting!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 9 August 2014
By Michie Scott - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Characters - Alexa Reed and Julian Bauer

Genre - Contemporary Romance

Author - Hilary Wynner

Rating - 5 Books

Source - ARC in exchange for an honest review

I like Alexa's character, she is so smart,witty,insecure and fragile as well. I like how she valued her friendship with Luke. Julian is a typical male alpha who really showed his love to Alexa. He really tried to understand Alexa's attitude because he love her so much. Alexa was so scared to trust anybody she tried to hold back her feelings to Julian which I find annoying sometimes.

I felt sad and happy every time they had a fight, after they fight Julian will do his best to win back Alexa and to patch up everything. At first I like Luke too but on the middle of the story he became possessive of Alexa and he tried to ruin Alexa and Julian's relationship.

This book came so much than I expected. The plot was bit different and the characters are amazing. I found the story,characters and relationship very realistic.

I'm so excited for the Book 2.

Great job Hilary ! Thanks for giving us one of a kind story.
