I am so sad to see this series end. The Burg by Kristen Ashley is one of my favorite series beside The Unfinished Hero, Colorado Mountain and Magdalene. The characters were so great and I connected to each and every one of them. I was so absorbed in this I finished it in two days. I didn't want to put it down. The ending was just great and solidified some of my predictions. I loved seeing that, and everyone in the series, for the last time. Kristen couldn't have ended the series in a better way. Even though it ended, it ended with a splash and I highly recommend it to anyone who has the Burg fever like I do.
Cher and Garrett....it was great seeing Garrett’s story. I wanted to know about him and his problems since his sister, Rocky, had hers and it mostly stemmed from their mother getting killed. Through the book the issue is brought up and I loved how Cher helped him through it. Cher is an amazing mother and her son Ethan is just so cute and protective of her. There were a lot of issues dealt with in Hold On but Cher and Merry both hung tough and faced it head on. There were relationship problems but it’s to be expected when you’re in a new relationship, you have to feel things out and get to know each other before you’re in sync and working like a well oiled machine.
Since she was young, Cher Rivers knew she was not the kind of girl who got what she wanted. A girl who could hope. A girl who could dream. She knew a happily ever after just wasn’t in the cards for her.
In love for years with last bastion of the ’Burg’s eligible bachelors, Garrett Merrick, Cher worked hard at making him laugh. Being one of the guys. Having him in her life the only way she could. All this knowing he was in love with another woman.
The Merrick Family is known for loving deep. So when Cecelia Merrick was murdered, it marked the Merrick family in a way none of them recovered. Both Cecelia’s children found love. Both turned their backs on it. But Garrett “Merry” Merrick knew in his soul the woman he divorced years ago was the one for him.
Until the night when Cher took Garrett’s back and things changed. The Merrick family loves deep but they also protect fiercely. And with his eyes finally open, he can see the woman who truly is for him and Garrett goes after her. The problem is she’s surrounded by danger. So he has to win her at the same time keep her safe.
