[Release Blitz + Review] Never Hold Back by J.A. Essen


Title: Never Hold Back (First Responders #2)
Author: J.A. Essen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 16, 2016




We all have to live through it.

We all have to figure out how to move past it and continue to live.

Rachel – Spoiled, little blonde rich girl with no grip on the real world. No grip until an accident puts her in a public hospital with ‘real world’ people. When the officer that shows up to take her statement turns out to be the hottest man she’s ever laid eyes on, Rachel is pulled into his life and her world is put on its head.

Zander moved to California four years ago to get past the greatest loss in his life. Love was not something he thought he would ever feel again… or that he wanted to feel again. Little did he know that his world would be turned upside down by a pretty little blonde in a hospital bed.

But what happens when loss threatens to take everything you hold dear from you for a second time?

You fight. You fight with every ounce of your being to save that which matters most to you.

Will Zander and Rachel get their happily ever after?

 The story has laughs, steam, and heartbreak.

If you have not already read the below I would recommend reading those books first:
When Sparks Fly (First-Responders, #1)

This is Rachel and Zander's story. These two meet because of a tragic event.  The chemistry is off the charts but they are from two completely different words.  She’s a spoiled rich girl and he is a cop.  Can they make something work or will the differences between them keep them apart?  Can they both fight for each other or will one of them have to fight for the both of them to be together?

I recommend this book and look forward to more from this author in the future.

4 Stars!

J.A. Essen is back with his First Responders series with a sizzling new installment that will give opposite attracts a whole new meaning. I was introduced to this lovely author not to long ago with book one and man I was hooked.

Never Hold Back was a sweet, sexy, fun, intense, and passionate romance with a twist or two thrown into the mix. This book grabbed me from the beginning and didn't let me go until it was over. Sure this was a fast read but man did it pack a serious punch.

As for Zander and Rachel... sigh. I really, really liked these two... especially together even if they were from opposity ends of the worlds in many ways (and Zander was out of this world ah-mazing!). Their journey was perfectly paced, timed... never feeling rushed. And their chemistry was off the charts, undeniable and definitely sizzled at times.

I recommend this book.

I’m 35 and live in Texas where I run a restaurant 5 days a week. I have been married to my amazing wife for going on 12 years and have two great little boys who keep us on our toes. I started writing last year after my wife, Author Marie James, had been doing so for a year. I enjoyed writing short stories in middle school and high school, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. After reading her books, along with three of my other favorite authors, MNever, CJ Roberts, and JA Huss, I began writing romance and erotica. I have a total of 12 novellas planned right now in 4 different series. Some Rom-Com, some sports romance, and definitely some KINK!
