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.

Cher Rivers is a realist. She knows first hand how life can throw you a wicked curve ball. Like the Think-Your-Dating-A-Nice-Guy-But-He’s-Really-An-Axe-Murderer kind of curve ball. But she’s also one tough survivor.
She stays focused on raising her son, Ethan and tries not to let any of the cracks in her armor show. After all, women like her aren’t meant for the Country Club and they don’t get to fall in love with men like Garrett Merrick.
“Don’t hold back, Cher. Hand it to me straight,” he teased.
Lieutenant Garrett Merrick spent years hung up on his ex-wife. Until the night when he catches a glimpse of something so beautiful that it changes everything he ever thought about finding love again.
He always knew that Cher was gorgeous and fiercely independent, but he never expected her to be so passionate and vulnerable at the same time. And now that he's witnessed the kind of beauty that she holds inside, he’s going to show her that they can build something together that's so strong that it will last for all time.
“Now, give me some gooey and we’ll get some shut-eye so I can wake you up early and fuck you.”
Reading Hold On is just like visiting with your oldest and dearest friends. It’s a glorious microcosm of life exactly how it's meant to be lived – to the absolute fullest. Cher and Merry’s story was long and lush and I savored every moment of it. There's drama, mystery, pain, tenderness and raging desire that will burn right through to your heart.
Because in Kristen’s ‘Burg, the characters fight hard and love even harder and that’s what makes her final installment so absolutely satisfying to the soul…
