A hotshot consultant hired to streamline Osbourne Corp. meets his match in Pandora Justice—the more she plays hard to get, the more he wants her.
They say that like recognizes like, and the day I looked into her deep blues, I met my other half.
Pandora Justice took over as head of security at Osbourne Corp. after her father’s retirement. Eighty-hour workweeks are normal; being bossed around by handsome outsiders is not. And she doesn’t like it. Not even one bit.
It’s amazing how easily she can lie to herself.
I had to have her. Plain and simple.
The first time Pandora sees Royce in the ring—all tattoos and sinew, covered in sweat—he looks at her like he’s just won more than the fight. Like he won her.
I won’t play games with her. I’ll wait, and it will kill me, but I’ll do it for her.
Royce’s cocky grin with deep dimples makes Pandora melt. Once she wanted to smack that look off his face—now all she wants to do is kiss it. For the rest of her life.
The thought of spending the rest of my life with Pandora warms the place in my chest I didn’t think was alive. I’ve put my claim on her—she’s the one, and I’m done. It’s that simple.
Now that’s what I’m talking about, AR! With Hold Tight, you not only give us a strong alpha but you give us a strong and feisty heroine. As is always consistent with AR blissful escapes, we get the over the top cheesiness, sweetness and alpha tendencies. Oh and let’s not forget the virgin!
Pandora has always been viewed as the strong twin. The one who is business savvy and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. So it’s no surprise that she’s in the leadership role that she is in now. In her professional life she’s bossy but the work and effort she puts in far surpasses those of her peers. However, she knows that they could be more efficient so her cousin and business colleague, Henry, hires a consultant. Little did Pandora know what she was getting into.
From the moment Royce laid eyes on Pandora, he knew she was the one. The problem is, she’s feisty and stubborn and most defiantly avoiding him. Which only urges him on more. What I like about Royce so much is that he can be strong and all alpha like but he knew exactly what Pandora needed in order to come to terms with her emotions. So while he may want to be in control, he allows her the control that she needs and he highly respects her for it. Their banter together was just so much fun. I really enjoyed these two. And let’s not forget how hot he is as a fighter. Whew.
Hold Tight is an enjoyable little escape that will draw you in with a cocky and sexy hero and a feisty and beautiful heroine. Be prepared to laugh. Be prepared to swoon. And certain be prepared for the full blown steaminess that is coming your way!
