Hold Us Close (Keep Me Still #1.5) By Caisey Quinn
E-Book Cost: $0.99
Although this is a novella and not as long as the first one it was still an amazing read. I loved the first book and this one was no different I randomly started it because I couldn't sleep and I thought hey I will just read a chapter or two and fall sleep. Not the case, I ended up reading until 4 AM when I finished the book!
Such a fast paced continuation of Layla and Landen. There was everything I want in a New Adult book and I actually kind of liked that it was a little short, sometimes you don't have all day to read a book but are really in the mood for a great story.
So it picks up right where Layla and Landen left off; a couple years after they move to another country so Landen can play professional soccer, Layla gets some what she believes is happy news, Shes pregnant! She was so excited to tell him but right when shes about to tell Landen her aunt calls and tells them she was able to schedule a life saving surgery for Layla. Immediately she knows she has to tell her aunt absolutely not as she is pregnant; not exactly the way she wanted to tell Landen but oh well. What she didn't expect was his reaction to the news; finding out that he never wanted to be a father is just the start of many more problems to come in their relationship.
When the first book ends it seems more like a new beginning for him, putting his old life aside to start a new one. In this story we get to see how he is really coping with his past and how his upbringing plays a larger part in his future than he and Layla had expected.
Overall a really good story; just don't read in hopes of getting tired enough fall asleep because you won't be able to put it down!!
