Don't Let Go by Nona Raines
Publication Date: November 5, 2014
SynopsisAnnalee wants a no-strings fling. Eric's all about the strings. Twelve years ago, when Eric Sorenson's date dumped him right before the Senior Prom, his older sister’s best friend stepped in to save him from total humiliation. He never forgot Annalee or what she did for him that night…or the kiss they shared. He wants Annalee, and if he has his way, they'll take up where they left off. And this time, he won't let go. After a messy divorce, Annalee's not looking forward to her high school reunion. She's shocked when Eric appears at her door ready to return the favor and play escort. Gone is the inexperienced boy with a severe stutter—he's a striking, confident man. The memory of the kiss they shared rekindles an attraction that never died, and she's been on her own for a year. Isn't she entitled to kick loose and have a let's-go-crazy night?
Don't let Go was a different take on the whole friends to lovers, unrequeited love twist. This time, it was the guy who'd been in love for half his life. I enjoyed watching the fallout of letting those feelings out.
Annalee has been dealing with her divorce for a while, but her form of dealing is just not moving on at all. She's holding on to the pain and the hurt, and not allowing herself a chance to find someone else.
Eric shows up unexpectedly and and decides its now or never and he's going to state his feelings and hope for the best.
Like everything, there is a complication or two, but in the end, both Eric and Annalee work it out and figure out that they want to be together.
Don't let go is a sweet and short tale of romance between friends and a long time love finally coming out. I enjoyed this glimpse into Annalee and Eric's life together.
