He loves me. He loves me not.

Ivy’s heart shatters upon hearing Eric’s crushing ultimatum. Despite how much she cares for him, she won’t give in to his demands. She has no choice but to leave, even if it’s the hardest thing she’s ever had to do.

She loves me. She loves me not.

When Ivy walks out, Eric can’t help feeling betrayed. Unwilling to put her at risk, he values her safety above all else. By refusing to compromise, he’s blindsided when she moves in with a man who’s already stolen so much from him.

I love you. You love me not.

Lauren sees Eric and Ivy’s split as an opportunity to end their relationship once and for all. When Ivy places herself at the mercy of Eric’s rival, Lauren plots to destroy the fragile tie binding them together, even if she endangers Ivy’s life in the process.


But there’s something I have to do before this goes any further.

Slowly, I draw my head away from her embrace, finding the courage to finally meet her eyes. Her hair hasn’t been combed and her face is all tear-stained, but she has never looked more beautiful.

She stands, bracing herself against me. Her breath hitches when I gently start unbuttoning her shirt, but her eyes never leave my face. I stop partway up, raising the bottom half of her cami up and over her baby bump. Dropping down, I run my hands across her stomach, feeling her shiver against my fingertips. Looking up at her, I place my lips on her bellybutton, kissing the child that’s growing within her, the miracle we created.

“I will never ask you to choose again,” I say solemnly, my voice nothing but a whisper.

Ivy starts to cry in earnest, placing her hands atop mine.

“You are my heart now. Whatever happens to you happens to me.” I kiss each one of her knuckles as she sighs deeply, like she’s been longing with all her soul to hear me say these words. “I know I’m not as brave as you are, but I promise to try harder.”

“Eric, stop. You’re the bravest man I know,” she proclaims with a tender fierceness, tears shining in her eyes.

“I’m just so afraid of losing you,” I mutter, breaking down.

“Oh, Eric,” she whimpers, sobbing right along with me. “I know, baby… I know.”

I lean back against the wall, guiding her onto my lap. We don’t say anything more. We just sit there and hold each other, savoring the moment.

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Finally!  The conclusion to the series that I’ve been waiting so impatiently!  I fell in ❤ with Faith Sullivan’s writing when I read Heartbeat, and each and every work of art she writes I fall more in <3!

When Hold Me Tight picks up, it’s exactly where Meant for Me left off.  Lauren is up to her no good self, and I tell ya what she’s a piece of work!  I thought she was evil, but that’s putting it nicely.  Ivy left me speechless at the end of book two.  I know that she loves Eric, but I was SO mad at her for leaving!

When the story continues, I was sitting on pins and needles waiting on Eric to come to Ivy’s rescue.  It didn’t take long, and damn it was easy… to easy!  That’s when I knew Lauren has something major up her her skinny sleeve!

Now let’s talk about what we all wanna know, Tim, WTF?  Really?  After everything that happened with Eric and Cassidy I just wasn’t sure how he was going to fit into the equation, but I knew there had to be more.  Boy was I right!  He’s one that is knows too much information and has to pay because of it.

Faith has done a fabulous job pulling in all the characters that have been involved from start to finish, included a little country fun.  Now poor Eric needs to find himself a four-wheeler and he’d been in business!  I’ve loved Eric from the beginning, and he continues to steal my heart over and over! ❤

By the end of Hold Me Tight, all issues are brought to the forefront.  It will leave you with your mouth hanging open, your heart being pulled apart, put back together, and a whole lotta karma!
