I love the characters Maddie and Jake they make the ideal couple. Jake shows a loving side when he embraces Troy’s baby. He shows that he is a loving and caring man and that he would never hurt a woman. I loved watching how attentive Jake was with Maddie and showed her that she could trust him. He has to show Maddie that he would never hurt her but most of all that he truly loves her with all his heart.
I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys romance stories. Read how Maddie and Jake both overcome their trust issues and embrace their future. I can not wait to read book 2 Holding on and see what will become of Dex.
