Hold Me CloseTitle: Hold Me Close
Series: Bridgewater County #4
Author: Vanessa Vale
Genre: Contemporary Romance (MFM)
Publisher: Self Published
Publication Date: August 10th, 2017


Rachel wants one thing in life, a family of her own. But she’s not going to get it without a man. Or can she?

They may have ruined their chances in the past, but Matt and Ethan know Rachel’s the woman for them. When they discover her plans, they tell her they’ll give her exactly what she wants. The old fashioned way. Because once they get their hands on her, they’ll hold her close and never let go.

Warning: Panty melting! Hold Me Close is book 4 in the wildly dirty series where two obsessed alpha cowboys give the woman of their dreams exactly what she desires. This standalone HEA is all about her – no M/M

Let me start off this review by stating a fact. Vanessa Vale is a new to me author and even though Hold me Close is the fourth book in the series, it can totally be read as a standalone! However, this novel will have you intrigued and wanting to read the first three books in the series.

Rachel is scared of all things dealing with physical intimacy. After a situation in her college years goes wrong she’s tried and tried to lose her V card but no mater what or who she freezes and the panic sets in. All Rachel wants is a baby…and you know what they say….when desperate times call for desperate measures you take the situation into your own hands. That is how Rachel finds herself at a sperm bank. But when two brooding alpha male cowboys come barreling into her exam room putting a stop to it all and making her an offer, she can’t refuse…can she. She should due to the fact that the two cowboys are none other than her bosses!

Ethan and Matt made this novel. If I could describe the perfect guy it would be a mixture of these two. Where Ethan is down to earth and the soft one of the two, Matt is the thunderous alpha male with a dirty mouth and a short fuse. I loved these two when it comes to Rachel and the family they are all trying to create.

One thing I wish for is more of the ‘cowboy’ lifestyle. The first chapter of the novel drew me in with the bull riding. I was excited to read more along those lines but was a tad bit disappointed that was the only place that involved a descriptive cowboy lifestyle.

Matt, Rachel, and Ethan’s story is sweet and sexy. This is an MFM novel with no MM. I loved that this novel was fast paced and got to the point of the story. I rather enjoyed this novel and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!

Peace Love and Happy Reading,
