Hold Me Now ~ J H Croix ~ New Release & Review

Release Date: October 19

A brand new firefighter series from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix!

He’s my new roommate.
I can’t stand him, and he can’t stand me.

Russell Dane thinks he’s all that. Maybe’s he’s so hot he should come with a too-hot-to-handle sign, but he drives me crazy. Not the good kind of crazy either.

He thinks women shouldn’t be firefighters, he’s obnoxiously overprotective, and I can’t stand him. Unfortunately, my body is not getting the memo, but I’m stronger than a few confused hormones. Right?

It wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to work together, and if he wasn’t my boss. It definitely wouldn’t be so bad if he hadn’t gone and kissed me.

Russel & Paisley’s story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, hotshot firefighters, sassy tomboy heroines, roommate romance, frenemies to lovers, hate to love, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of steam and swoon, and a broody, protective hero.

Review Copy Provided by Author

In Hold Me Now we meet Russel and Paisley - co workers and unexpected roommates who discover their animosity for each other is really a lot more.

I enjoyed this first book in a new series featuring hot shot firefighters. Russel and Paisley were each entertaining characters and the spark between them could start a forest fire. I do wish we’d seen a bit more character development for both players as it seemed what is here just skimmed the surface.

Hold Me Know has a large secondary cast and honestly skates the fine line of being too much. It’s obvious that while this is the first book in a new series, it picks up where other series have left off with multiple references to things that happened previously. It works here as there is enough detail to add vs detract from the story between Russel and Paisley. We also see several characters that may be featured in future books.

This was a fairly quick read that fit the bill for fun. I am curious about upcoming reads in the series as well as the author’s back list.
