Hold On, A Play On/Big Sky Novella from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Young is now LIVE!
Autumn O’Dea has always tried to see the best in people while her big brother, Killian, has always tried to protect her from the worst. While their lonely upbringing made Killian a cynic, it isn’t in Autumn’s nature to be anything but warm and open. However, after a series of relationship disasters and the unsettling realization that she’s drifting aimlessly through life, Autumn wonders if she’s left herself too vulnerable to the world. Deciding some distance from the security blanket of her brother and an unmotivated life in Glasgow is exactly what she needs to find herself, Autumn takes up her friend’s offer to stay at a ski resort in the snowy hills of Montana. Some guy-free alone time on Whitetail Mountain sounds just the thing to get to know herself better.
However, she wasn’t counting on colliding into sexy Grayson King on the slopes. Autumn has never met anyone like Gray. Confident, smart, with a wicked sense of humor, he makes the men she dated seem like boys. Her attraction to him immediately puts her on the defense because being open-hearted in the past has only gotten it broken. Yet it becomes increasingly difficult to resist a man who is not only determined to seduce her, but adamant about helping her find her purpose in life and embrace the person she is. Autumn knows she shouldn’t fall for Gray. It can only end badly. After all their lives are divided by an ocean and their inevitable separation is just another heart break away…

** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. **
This novella was a condensed of sweetness and hotness.
Autumn was far from imagined that she would find anything coming to another country. She just wanted to find herself, after a few disastrous relationship that would have ended badly, all she needed was a place in the mountains when she would find some quiet and peace. Until she met Gray on the slopes but let just say that they didn’t get along firsthand.
The author explores instant attraction between two people who lived across the world from each other, with an embarrassing meet cute. I’ve been a little taken aback by the hero’s straightforwardness towards the heroine. Especially in a novella. But it kinda work for me at some point.
It was definitely getting hot in here and it took one determined and very obstinate man to win her over. But would Grayson be strong enough to make her believe that they were the perfect fit.
The only little glitch to me was how the heroine was described throughout the story, mostly about her physique than her personality. I wanted for that woman who were looking for something more, to let people see beneath her beauty, that she was something more than a pretty face. We had it of course but it wasn’t enough. It was still enjoyable but just a little rushed sometimes to me.
