If you have read any of my other posts, you know me and fairies do not always get along...correction, we RARELY get along. And the sad thing is, I am always intrigued by fairy books and end up picking them up anyway. I am proud to say this one breaks that streak - thank you Cherie Colyer.

FROM GOODREADS: What’s one little spell?
you’re new to magic, one spell can be the difference between getting
what you want...and ruining the lives of everyone you love.
Madison has just embraced her magical powers. The trick now is learning
how to control them. She and her boyfriend -and fellow witch- can’t
even enjoy a simple kiss without getting shocked when their powers
collide. Instead of mastering her new skills, though, Madison is stuck
watching her kid brother and doing chores.
But being a witch does
have its benefits. With a simple spell, Madison instantly conjures the
help she needs around the house. Or so she thinks. Her idea of “help”
invites trouble of its own as a pair of dangerous yet enticing beings
enter her life. When a classmate disappears soon afterwards, Madison
discovers she's the next victim of a threat she's powerless to
resist...and there’s nothing it won’t kill to make her surrender.
in the crossfire between two dashing but deadly creatures, Madison must
figure out which one to trust and how to rid her world of the
other—before one of them destroys her and everyone she cares about.
author provided me this book in exchange for an honest review. I
recently read Embrace and enjoyed it enough to follow up with this one.
Most of the time I find second books in a series a tad disappointing but
that is not the case with Hold Tight. In fact, I found this one to be
better than the first.
The old gang is back but this time with
several new characters. A lot of the books is spent figuring out just
who some of these individuals are, and I found the journey quite
enjoyable. I really enjoyed Caden, and without giving too much away,
thought his bad-boy character broke up the boredom I sometimes feel with
Isaac. I also think Madison's characters is growing and developing
over time and she is less like Twilight's Bella each page (a good thing
in my book).
There is little I didn't enjoy about this book.
Anyone who has read Embrace and might be hesitant to continue on, don't
be. I don't know if there is another installment planned, but if so, I
will definitely be picking it up.
This book also is one of the
few books with fae in it that didn't drive me insane. These is just
something with me and fairies which usually doesn't get along.
