Hold the Door by Vinni George Blog Tour

Blog Tour: Vinni George’s Hold the Door.

One hidden crush.
One bunch of plastic mistletoe.
One alcohol-fueled kiss.
One set of taillights as Max Martino left town.

Sixteen years later…

Sam Addison hates change, and his company’s new merger is stretching him to his limit. When Sam finds out an older, hotter, and amazingly talented Max Martino is part of the acquisition, he knows the only way to keep his sanity is to avoid Max—and their history—at any cost.

Max never planned to settle down, but recently he’s been pining for roots. A new job, a new city, and a second chance with Sam makes the thought of staying in one place exciting for the first time ever.
But the harder Max pushes, the farther Sam runs, sometimes literally, and Max begins to wonder if Sam can ever let go of the biggest mistake Max ever made—leaving.

But maybe a second chance at forever is as simple as holding the door open for love.

Hold the Door is a contemporary romance that features friends to lovers and a second chance at love, a sassy work husband, and surfing lessons that often lead to more. Hold the Door is the first book in the Open Doors series and can be read as a standalone.

“Seriously, though,” Archer said, “you okay? You took one look at the org chart and went white. You’re not that worried about the new workload, are you? You know you’re going to organize and prioritize the shit out of this. This is the kind of crap you live for. And I’ll help you with the people. No sweat.” Archer gave me an encouraging smile.

“I’m fine, Archer. And I’m not that worried. A name I didn’t expect to see was up there, that’s all. It was a bit of a shock. Nothing I can’t handle.” Lie. Fat fucking lie. Actually, not fat. Tall, auburn-haired, green-eyed lie. Just when I’d thought I might be able to handle all this upheaval…

I’d had no warning about this, no time to prepare. I’d had no idea Max even worked for Edison. Sure, I’d tried to stalk him on social media a time or twenty over the years, but he didn’t seem to be on a single platform. No Facebook, no LinkedIn, not even an Instagram, which I honestly thought was weird for a photographer. Maybe it was a different Max Martino. My heart rate kicked up again as my gut assured me that wasn’t the case. I’d have to dig into some old issues of Easy Living to see if I could find out more. I also needed to come up with a contingency plan. How could I manage my new responsibilities and keep Max out of my space? There had to be a solution. My mind scrolled through possible options, and I felt myself settle. I could plan my way out of having to see Max again. This would all be okay. I took another shuddery breath.

Archer gave me a look that clearly said he’d be pressing me for more details when we were alone, but I didn’t care. My mind wasn’t on Archer, and I didn’t hear the rest of Jane’s presentation. All I could think about were a pair of bright green eyes in a rearview mirror as they’d driven out of my life sixteen years ago and how I was going to avoid ever having to look into those eyes again.



“Then what is your kink?” Max’s eyes went hot.   “You. Particularly you in a pair of board shorts. You, in a pair of board shorts, soaking wet if we want to get really specific.”

Sixteen years, that's a long time to be think about one kiss, but that's what started this all. Max and Sam are good together. I couldn't fully connect with either of them, but I still enjoyed the book. It was low angst and had amazing secondary characters that I hope get their own books. It's a good weekend read that will make you smile and sigh.



I turned to look at Max. The smile on his face was nearly as bright as the sun rising behind him. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad after all. Maybe we could let the surf wash our past away.
