Held Against You by Season Vining

 

synopsis_thumb2

Accused of a horrible crime and on the run, Kat has been rejected by everyone she loves. She’s a fugitive from her past, flitting from town to town with nothing but the clothes on her back. Until she meets a man who literally stops her in her tracks.

This notorious bounty hunter, with his stunning good looks and powerful instincts, never fails to capture his prey. But there’s something about his newest mark that gets under his skin–and it’s not just the naked innocence he sees in her eyes. Behind his ice cold demeanor, he has his own secrets... and now his lively, vulnerable captive is about to crack him wide open.

As they drive across the country together, neither of them can deny the spark of attraction between them. Will their journey force these two passionate opposites together…or will their dangerous secrets be too much to bear?

4 out of 5 stars

Great story with really intriguing characters! I was hooked from the beginning! I like how the characters were introduced and the story line as well, a really good foundation was made from the beginning. It had light moments mixed with animosity, drama, and a bit of sexiness.

I liked Kat a lot. In such a bad situation but in the middle of the everything there were moments of humor. Those moments added just the right amount of lightness it needed. Kat really was super sweet! The bounty hunter who was after her was fascinating. I seriously wanted to know everything about him. This is told from dual POV's which I loved. They have this back and forth animosity which was great. They had a nice push and pull going on. He doesn't tell her his name until much later and she makes up names for him which I think is extremely funny. I loved watching the bounty hunters struggle and vulnerability, he had such inner turmoil. Him opening up and really gaining personal growth was great. It loved how Kat could break through his armor. I liked both of their internal thoughts and learning about their struggles. It all made for a great story.

I had so many questions throughout and it had a good build to all the answers even though some parts were slow for me. There was drama and conflict throughout that maintained a nice level of intensity and kept me on the edge of my seat. There were actually a few parts that caught me by surprise. That being said, some things wrapped up a bit to easy but overall I thought it was an excellent read. 

This story had everything I'm a fan of: animosity, a bit of funny and sexy, drama and intensity, and characters that really make me want to get inside their heads.

Complimentary copy received for honest review.
