Blog Tour + Giveaway: "Don't Let Go" by Michelle Lynn


Sadie Miller is attempting to change her ways and hide somewhere no one knows her former self. She only wants to finish her final year of college, obtain her degree, and get out from the hold of her affluent parents. Then she meets Brady Carsen, the lead singer of The Invisibles, a local band popular with the college crowd. She tries to stay away but quickly realizes that, although he might not be what she’s used to, he’s exactly what she needs and more importantly, everything she could possibly want. 

Unfortunately, Sadie’s troubled past left her with insecurities that make her question Brady’s true intentions. And while Brady is convinced that Sadie is the one for him, he has his own secrets that he fears will be their undoing. If they want to be together, they will have to stand united and fight the outside influences that are threatening to tear them apart. Can they put their pasts behind them for good in order to secure their future?

5 Stars

"You're the only girl who consumes my thoughts, my dreams, and my mind."

Don't Let Go started off with a bang! (pun most definitely intended) *wink* So, to say I was very interested in seeing where things would go, would be a safe bet. Sadie Miller was not the typical good girl we usually get in books, in fact, she was quite the opposite.  

Trying to overcome a few demons from her past, she moved to finish college in a new city.  There, she vowed to stay away from parties and most importantly, guys. Luckily, Sadie had the best roommate, ever -- Jessa. She did not put up with anyone's crap and she didn't let Sadie just waste away. It was thanks to her, that Sadie came face to face with the hot, lead singer of  The Invisibles, Brady Carsen

You see, Brady really wasn't a bad boy rock star. In fact, he was very intelligent, respectful, sincere, caring, responsible, but...full of secrets.  Secrets that had me turning the pages wanting to find out what they were. 

From the moment Brady laid eyes on Sadie, he was a goner. I absolutely loved how he went about getting her to go on a date with him. Their banter and overall dialogue had me giggling and straight forward laughing. But mind you, Brady can definitely make a girl swoon.

"You have no idea how much I want to feel your body against mine."

"Sadie, you are so beautiful, remember that always. Don't ever think you are anything less than exceptional because in my eyes, you are everything."

Brady and Sadie's chemistry was amazing...but their sexual connection was off the charts. Simply put, they were perfect for each other -- just what the other one needed. Throughout the book we got to see both of them grow individually and as a couple and I absolutely liked that. 

There was some angst during the book, which I definitely enjoyed. Yep, I'm a sucker for angsty scenes, and Michelle Lynn did not disappoint. Kara... ugh. Can you say, stalker? 
Anyway, the plot was very intriguing. There were a few twists here and there that kept the ball rolling. The secondary characters were great and very well developed, too. I'm SO looking forward to Grant's book. I instantly liked his character when he first made an appearance and throughout the book, I ended up loving him. So yes, I cannot wait for Let Me In.

Don't Let Go is a sexy, heart warming story that should not be passed up! 
I recommend this book!

"I'm thankful that I am no longer alone. That I have my one and only by my side forever and always. Never let go, babe..."



“I need you to trust me.” He grabs my hand, placing it in his lap. “I can’t tell you where I was Friday night, at least not yet. But believe me Sadie, I wasn’t with anyone else. You’re the only girl who consumes my thoughts, my dreams, and my mind. Please trust me when I say there is no one else,” his voice is desperate, saturating his soft brown eyes.
A big part of me believes him. My thoughts go to Jessa and how she now trusts guys again after what her ex-boyfriend did to her. I need to move on with my life; it’s been over a year and I still harbor all of the hurt and remorse. If I don’t start living my life, it is going to pass me by. Brady’s right, I never gave him a fair shot.
“I believe you,” I whisper, still unsure of my decision to give this a chance.
“Thank you, Sadie.” He releases the deepest breath in relief. “Now I have one more favor.” He peers over at me, continuing to hold my hand.
“What, Carsen?”
“Go on a date with me. A real date, just you and me from beginning to end,” he asks, squeezing my hand.
I close my eyes, willing myself to allow me to have this. Give myself the possibility to have happiness and accept the consequences. “Yes,” I answer him.

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed
