I don't like this one bit Through out this who book, I feel like I have whiplash, and the tears are streaming down my face and I just want my Landen back. I want him to kiss me and I want cherries and Georgia peaches. I just want it all back. I am gutted and I don't know if I like it or if I hate it and these emotions are not sitting well with me.

It was finally happening and I love it. it was perfect but you can't just leave well enough alone, can you my dear sweet Caisey. You have to continue to fuck with my head and all Tim McGraw was playing on repeat in my head and I couldn't get him to shut the fuck up. It was maddening. But like every other brilliant masterpiece that comes out of that brain of yours, the ending was perfect and I love you even more for it. You held my heart the entire time and I think you should hold on to it until you release Girl in love. and some of this: and finally I was like BAM NAILED IT.

    3,5 💔💔💔🌟s A tough, intense and severe read. Although there were glimpses of Landen’s anger issues, in this book he had transformed into a completely different person. Layla and Landen had very harsh obstacles to overcome, always with the hope to find their HEA.

    And that is exactly the case for me with this book. It’s beautifully written, it’s emotional, it’s deep and meaningful, and the characters come through their struggles showing tremendous strength and a stronger love than ever!

It’s beautifully written, it’s emotional, it’s deep and meaningful, and the characters come through their struggles showing tremendous strength and a stronger love than ever! I just didn’t want to have to watch all of the drama happen. Starting three years after the ending of Keep Me Still, we find Layla and Landen happily living their dream in Spain. However, everything very quickly falls to pieces along with the arrival of some surprising news which pushes Landen over the edge, triggering a devastating downfall for our beloved hero. Oh my poor Landen! It was like a switch had been flicked and he was a completely different person to the boy/man that I fell in love with! (view spoiler)[This is a guy who has been absolutely perfect through two books, I absolutely ADORE him! And then all of the sudden he's developed a huge anger management problem - he's violent, he's closed off, he flies into rages, and he's just not the same guy! (hide spoiler)] . We still see the beautifully loving Landen underneath, and I could see his torment and I understood it, but I thought it was such a horrible thing to put him through, I thought the whole thing was completely unnecessary. Layla and Landen have both already overcome horribly traumatic circumstances just to function in everyday life, let alone be together, and they still have more hard times coming, this on top of it all just seemed like overkill. I am a huge fan of the first two books in this series – Let You Leave and Keep Me Still, and it’s not that I thought that this was a bad book, I just didn’t want to see this happen to characters that I deeply care about. It’s utterly heartbreaking for both of them, and I just didn’t want to read about them going through something like that, they've been through enough. We do get a beautifully happy ending at the end of it all, and an epilogue set a further 5 years into the future which, again, is bittersweet (view spoiler)[ with Landen having his dream career snatched away from him so soon… again, I think this was in there to show him conquering his demons, but come on! Give the guy a break! (hide spoiler)] . But as much as I liked the opportunity to see where these characters ended up, I think I would have preferred to just use my imagination. And sadly for me, this is going to have to fall into the category of I’m going to try and forget that most of this book actually happened. So yeah, a beautifully written book, with some incredible character development and all of the heart and emotion that I have come to expect from Caisey Quinn, it was just a little bit much for me. 3.5 stars. (rated up for Landen's letter included at the end)

We learnt that Landen and an incident and he is no longer able to play soccer for the rest of his life. I found this really upsetting and necessary,because throughout the whole book sequel, Landen had a big passion for soccer, and we always have seen him as a soccer player. So at the end when Caisey Quinn somehow decides to take it all away from him, it really, for me, ruins the whole series. I don't see any reason why the author took away his successful career from him and it is just so sad this terrible thing happened to end a good series. (it WOULD be good). Anyways, i would still LOVE to read more of Landen and Layla novellas in future, perhaps one with Landen getting better and getting his career back? :)

    I can't rate this book any higher than 2/5 stars. I enjoyed the story of Layla and Landen up until this book. It isn't badly written or in itself a horibble story and it wraps up the story for the most part. However, I really hated the complete 180 in this book. I'd really come to like Landen in the previous books. Sure, the whole 'I came because your aunt payed me'-thing from the last book was already a little horrible, but it this book the author managed to completely change his character.

It's just ridicilous. Combine that with the fall of his dream in the end and I just kind of wish I'd followed other reviewers and hadn't bothered with this book. What a way to ruin a series that could've been really nice.

    Why oh why? Why so many authors after publishing a successful book going for the second or third, when they actually have nothing special to say? Yeah as a reader I liked Layla and Landen story! The first book was good! Just I don't think dragging something without a good plot is a wise thing! For God sake Authors! stop ruining your characters through forced stories!!

And I am unfortunately start to doubt about Goodreads' reviews and ratings overall! Ok ! I know...I was a little harsh for my own taste! It is just that I was really frustrated over reading a book that got 4.45 out of 5 and then realize that it really doesn't deserve more than 3 !

    Anne OK

    Caisey Quinn has fast become a auto-buy author for me. I've read all her books to date and can't wait for the next. Her stories are refreshingly different, fun-to-read, and full of sizzling chemistry. Just when I think her stories can't get more addictive, she shifts into overdrive and creates another unforgettable and beautifully crafted addition to her already memorable releases. If you haven't read Caisey Quinn's books, you're missing out on some exceptional reading.

    First thank you to Caisey Quinn for giving me an ARC of Hold Us Close and here is my honest review. Oh. Lordy! This book was fan-freakin-tastic! This is the continuation of Landen and Layla’s story, and WOW what a story it is. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with Landen in Keep Me Still while Layla completely amazed me. However, Landen and Layla together captured my heart entirely in KMS to the point where I didn’t think that I could love them even more but Hold Us Close made my heart First thank you to Caisey Quinn for giving me an ARC of Hold Us Close and here is my honest review. Oh. Lordy! This book was fan-freakin-tastic! This is the continuation of Landen and Layla’s story, and WOW what a story it is. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with Landen in Keep Me Still while Layla completely amazed me. However, Landen and Layla together captured my heart entirely in KMS to the point where I didn’t think that I could love them even more but Hold Us Close made my heart fall even more in love with them. Hold Us Close shows how perfect Landen and Layla really are for each other, that they truly are soulmates. In KMS we are put in a situation where Landen is Layla’s rock and becomes her strength for the troubles that she is faced with. In HUC gives us the other half of their relationship by showing that Layla can be the strength that Landen needs when his life is spiraling out of control. Their relationship becomes stronger through the difficult situations that they are faced with and are able to work through together. They are each other’s strength and support throughout HUC. They do go through their share of troubles, tough situations, and surprises in HUC. Right from the very beginning they run in to a situation that puts their strength and faith in each to the test. I don’t want to give anything away but I will say this, Layla showed her strength in KMS but in HUC she became someone that I would want when the going gets tough. She becomes the strength for herself and for Landen when their world gets the unexpected surprises and twists. Both of these characters are very strong people that will hold you captivated throughout HUC. I may have said this before but it must be said over and over, Caisey Quinn is a genius and most certainly knows how to write in order to pull at your heartstrings. HUC will surpass any expectations that any reader has and is written in such detail that the reader will be captured into the story seeing both Layla and Landen’s point of views. The writing flows easily and, to me, is a key component in being captured in the story. HUC isn’t rushed as some characters’ second stories sometimes are, Mrs. Quinn gives us a glimpse into their lives after HUC is finished and she also gives us a rundown of how they get to that point in their life. Hold Us Close will have you feel every emotion because I was. I laughed, cried, got angry, sad, and even had me blush (let me just say cherries may be involved). Hold Us Close is a definite, must read but is also one that you will want to reread over and over again.

Landen is faced with a reality that causes him not to cope and he's has to try and make it right or otherwise he takes the chance of losing the one thing he wants in the world...Layla. Layla's patience and love is so sweet and powerful that it gives you nothing but hope for her well deserved HEA. I love Caisey Quinn. She captures the emotion, heartache, angst and beauty of her characters that you feel all their emotions and are routing for them the whole way. Your heart goes out to both Layla and Landen when they're faced with their demons trying to find their happiness together.

    Landen and Layla are thrown some def tough obstacles and we get some answers and some resolve. I don't want to give the story away, but if I'm going to review I have to so beware! Layla's aunt was able to put Layla on the waiting list to get her brain surgery, but Layla is unable to get the surgery because she is pregnant. Yay! How fun! Well not according to Landen! I totally did not see that reaction coming from him!!

Finally, he checked himself into a facility to help his anger. Unfortunately, he's not cured, but is managing it. Once he went to the facility, things progressed and he was getting excited about being a dad. He also was able to make up with the Colonel.

    I loved the story line, hated the F-bombs and sex scenes. WAY too much cussing, and really didn't fit into most of the sentences. Very distracting.

Too much for me, and It's a shame, because I really thought it was a great book outside of that. I would give it 4 stars if the cussing and sex scenes were edited out for me.

But instead, I found myself not liking Landen's character. While I found myself sympathetic to his history, I couldn't agree with his behaviors. And when he kept apologizing, I just kept thinking that it was the beginning of an abusive relationship, which is not at all where I wanted their love to head. Sure, it ends on a more upbeat note. And I think it reflects what perhaps dealing with real-life anger issues can be. But I guess I wanted to escape from reality in a happy, rooting-for-their-love type of way, and not be thinking that she should probably be leaving him for her and the baby's safety.

    I liked the Layla from keep me still. I thought that she was colder and less detached. Or started seeing differently. I felt as if she has lost a part of herself and a little of her faith in Landen. I disliked a part of the story. I am sure if Landen has that many issues in the previous book(s) or they came on the surface later. He seemed to be getting worse and things eventually got out of control. Layla is better. She is almost fixed. So now is the time to fix Landen.

I gave Hold me Still a pretty good rating and review and this novella ruined that for me. I loved Landen and Layla and I loved them together in the previous book. The fact that I was rooting for Layla to leave Landen in this book just showed how much I hated this addition. Hold me Still was hard to read mostly because it was so emotional but it was the good kind of emotional. In this one, it was hard to read just because the whole thing was frustrating. I really hated Landen in this one. He was not the Landen we knew and loved. Giving him a disorder to justify his actions did not make it ok. Layla deserved better. She had a hard past and was the one with the life threatening disease and yet, this whole book she was the one trying to make Landen feel better. Corin was the only logical one in this book by being angry at Landen instead of trying to excuse his actions. There were so many times in this book when Landen did something unforgivable and I thought, ok Layla is going to leave him now but nope unfortunately they still tried to work through his problem. I'm still mad he broke her vase that was her reminder of her mother. I just hated how hard Layla had to fight for him. Even when he came back from rehab he was still trying to push her away. And the whole pregnancy thing made me so mad because of how selfish Landen was being. The woman you love is freaking pregnant with your child and you just keep stressing her out and couldn't even be there to support her. LAYLA DESERVES BETTER. And wasn't there a line in Hold Me Still where he sad he would give Layla everything if having kids and getting married was what she wanted? What the heck happened to that? I felt like the author forgot about that when she was writing this novella and she just decided on this whole "I never want to be a father" thing only when she was writing this book because there wasn't a hint of that at all in the previous book. I'm also not a fan of how easily forgiven the Colonel and his mother were. ok fine it wasn't exactly easy but in the end the Colonel even got to spend time with their daughter. Did Layla forget that she once said that she would never let her children near that man? He deserves no forgiveness. The man freaking abused Landen, he should be in jail. I don't see this in other reviews but I freaking hated his mother too. Just because she didn't directly abused Landen she was the enabler and she too deserved no forgiveness. I felt like this book had problems and conflicts that were 100 times bigger and more intense than those in the previous book and yet this was the one made into a novella. Even the epilogue that everyone thought was so sweet wasn't sweet to me because it showed that his anger problem was still affecting Layla and this time, Hope too. This was really disappointing because I just expected a whole lot more after loving Hold Me Still. I probably won't be reading Skylar and Corin's book either because it isn't safe.
