Review: Hard to Hold by Stephanie Tyler (New Author Challenge)

37699146From the back of the book


Lieutenant Jake Hansen has survived some of the riskiest missions known to man. But now the wounded Navy SEAL faces his toughest job yet: smuggling Dr. Isabelle Markham out of Africa without triggering an international incident. Not easy to do when the gorgeous hostage happens to be a senator’s daughter—and about as easy to resist as an oasis in the desert.

If it weren’t for Jake, Isabelle would still be halfway across the world, where rebel forces left her for dead. The special ops warrior may have saved her life, but she doesn’t need him to protect her now. Tell that to the ruggedly handsome hunk in full battle fatigues who’s just been assigned as Isabelle’s personal bodyguard. Close quarters aside, Isabelle won’t let Jake anywhere near her heart—until danger throws them together again. And nothing in the jungles of wildest Africa could prepare them for a passion this wild. This crazy. This hot…

This is the first in an exciting new trilogy. I have been reading a lot of holiday themed books lately and this was just what I needed. HARD TO HOLD is fast-paced, action-packed, and hot. I loved all of the characters. Izzy and Jake are both incredible people, who have been through incredible things. Things that would break a weaker person and yet they both have survived. I felt that the connection between the two was very well written with my particular favorite part being that she would reach for his hand even when he wasn’t there. From the beginning I was caught up in the suspense of why someone would hurt Izzy. I cannot wait to read the next two books in the series. I definitely want to find out more about Jake’s brothers – Nick and Chris.
