Hold Me Close by Rosalind James


Kayla Chambers knows what love is—and what it isn’t. When her boyfriend turns abusive, she and her son escape to a new life in a place where he’ll never find them. The idyllic town of Paradise, Idaho, has everything she needs to get back on her feet. Survival is her only goal, and the last thing she wants is another man in her life.

But Kayla’s new neighbor, high school principal Luke Jackson, is determined to change her mind. Luke usually takes the fast lane with women, but he can see that Kayla and her son need help, and he wants to earn her trust—even if that means taking things slow. He strikes up a friendship that soon simmers into something passionate and real. But when Kayla’s past catches up with her, Luke knows he has to find a way to keep her safe…or risk losing her forever.

Shelby☆☆☆☆
I must say, the Paradise, Idaho series has honestly impressed me. I absolutely love the characters that Ms. James creates.
They're real – simple as that.

Hold Me Close is the story of Kayla, a single mother, who's running away from an abusive situation. She's learning to live again, and trust, and regain her faith in humanity. She's a strong character, of course she has flaws, but she is a survivor!
The only place that she feels safe is Paradise, Idaho and only due to fond childhood memories. Starting over isn't easy for anyone, but this place has "called" to her.
Luke Jackson noticed the moment Kayla and her son, Eli, start moving into an apartment nearby. Approaching Kayla didn't really work out, but something about her intrigues him – and Luke DOES NOT give up easily.

This was a beautiful story. Two people find everything they've ever needed from each other. Two families come together and all is right in the world...until it isn't.
