5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “Katie McCabe's life is going nowhere fast when FBI Special Agent Lucas Vasco jumps into her car at an intersection. Luc, his undercover guise blown, is on the run from the Mafia and expects to be killed at any moment. What he doesn't plan on is finding himself attracted to the firecracker beside him. He feels compelled to protect her when her life is threatened, and insists she stay with him for her own safety.
After learning she has become the target of a psychotic hit man, Katie is whisked off to Luc's house to hide. Once there, she's shocked to discover that she and Luc have an unexpected connection-a connection Luc already knew existed, but withheld. Will their intense attraction reach flashpoint despite their misunderstandings and the pain of the past?”
Hold Me by Betsy Horvath is a very intense story about surviving the ugly in life to be able to truly appreciate the beauty in it. Katie and Luc are just two characters you want to be able to miniaturize and put in your pocket. They are adorable and hot headed with wit to match and it makes readers truly appreciate how unique and funny they are. I don’t want to give much of this story away because I just love it so much and want readers to experience it, but I will say that reading this story is like falling in love with reading all over again. It had everything in it; romance, mystery, thrill, action, drama. Katie and Luc themselves are constantly surprising each other and readers it is like being on a roller coaster ride. I give Hold Me by Betsy Horvath 5 smirks because it is a great book with a little bit of everything in it and the Katie/Luc relationship is one to behold and laugh along with. Must read, must own.
