Hold On (Play On #2.5) by Samantha Young

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Samantha Young…

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…

If you want to read Hold on as a standalone story, please don’t. This is an after book that takes place after As Dust Dances. While reading that book, you’ll meet Autumn there and see her background. It will be useful to understand her better.

Hold On is the HEA of Autumn with glimpse of our lovely couple Skylar and Killian. Furthermore, Hold On is a part of the Big Sky Crossover of Kristen Proby’s series, so that sounds awesome.

This short story has insta love all over, with no drama, just insecurities from the past. Autumn O’Dea actually knocks into Grayson King, literally knocks him off while trying to sky. They instantly form a connection during her stay in Montana.

I was actually expecting a full book with Samantha Young’s full signature all over, but now that I understand it as a tribute for Autumn and Gray, I don’t mind seeing this as an longer epilogue.
