Won't Let Go

Seventeen-year-old Alexia Stone never wanted to move cross country. And she certainly never wanted to share her new bedroom with an amnesiac ghost boy desperate for her help. But after setting aside the assumption she's gone crazy, Alexia engages in the impossible-she agrees to help the ghost discover who he was and what happened to him. Convinced this mystery is what's ...more

What happens when you find the one that makes you happy and know you can never be with them?

Ok so I just finished Won’t Let Go and I’m crying my eyes out. The endings of books are always the worst/best. And I swear there is going to be another one…..or am I the only one that got that vibe, if so I’m going to cry some more. Anyways now onto the actual story.

When I first started reading the book it was a little slow, but that was because Alexia and her family ju

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books and Avery Olive for the opportunity!

This was a fresh read for me, something new and exciting. It's a ghost story, but it has romance and action. It's written perfectly. I connected with the main character, Alexia instantly. The writer did her justice and made her act like a real teenager. I had a problem lately, all the books I've read with teenager they weren't like they're age, they always made me feel like they

Just writing my review makes me smile and cry at the same time. I know i know, it’s crazy. There’s just too much feels in this one. Too much.


This is my first ghost story. My love for the movie ‘Just like Heaven’ made this book interesting to me. But wow!! This book surprised me and I loved it more that I thought I would.

4 stars

Alexia is not happy about moving to a new home and leaving her friends behind. When she enters her bedroom for the first time, she's stunned to find a handsome ghost standing in the middle of her room. Alexia doesn't believe in ghosts but is forced to change her mind when the ghost keeps on re-appearing. The ghost has amnesia and has no idea who he is or why he's there. Alexia helps him uncover the mystery and in the process they fall for

When Alexia Stone found a ghost/ spirit in her bedroom, she figured she might send him/it on his way. The only way to do it without sounding crazy is to help him/it find out the unfinished business.
What Alexia was not counting on, is having feelings for an entity.

The story is easy, short. The theme is common, yet people have unlimited ways to telling it. Alexia's story is unique on its own, I appreciate that.

As Alexia tries to solve the mystery, she stumbles into something more dangerous than f

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

Won’t Let Go grabbed my interest from the beginning, especially since I could relate to Alexia. My family moved when I was in high school and I remember how difficult that was. In fact, as I read, I thought I wish I’d handled it as well as she did.

Avery Olive is good at writing about Alexia’s feelings. Alexia, understandably, falls quickly for her ghostboy who is pretty much perfect for a teenage boy.

I really liked most of Won’t Let Go. Wh

So, one minute the girl hates the guy and the next she's in love with him and bent on helping him? Obviously she doesn't have anything better to do.

This book is very similar to Just Like Heaven, except the ending is different. Very different. And not as happy. Or at least, not that we know of. I mean, the book's ending is meh but the girl's story might end better.

Too many loose ends. I'm going to try A Stiff Kiss and I hope it's better. Lots better.

I'm posting this review so late I know.. I was have to posted so earlier but I haven't found a word for review.. I still haven't. I kind of like the story. I like Alexia. She's scared first but helped a lot anyway. I couldn't understand her parents. They are just.. you know carefree?

Seeing a handsome ghost is different. Alexia needs a escape and The boy want help so like puzzle they fit each other I think. I still confused about the book but a voice inside me tells 4 Star.

Won't Let Go reminded me like a more mature Casper. Except the more she learns about "Oakley" the more she starts to realize that all though he may be a friendly ghost, he might not have been that friendly of a person while he was alive. A cute little paranormal romance. Easy read and enjoyable but doesn't stand out.

Avery Olive kept me engaged from start to finish with Won't Let Go. This book is really well written and is full of romance, mystery, heroism, and heartbreaking sadness. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to read a refreshing paranormal romance.

I was a huge fan of A Stiff Kiss, so I was excited to pick up Won't Let Goat a conference both Avery and I attended this summer.

Avery's Young Adult voice and past paced action didn't disappoint, leading the reader on a tragic romantic path - that through humor - makes it seem less tragic.

For those who think they've read it all in paranormal romance - don't pass this one over. Olive writes about ghosts and the afterlife in a fresh, relevant way that will make you forget all about vampires! Her

When I started reading this book, I thought it was promising, even if it needed a little extra polish. Through the beginning of the book, my rating was firmly planted at 2.5 stars, then towards the middle it bumped up to 3 stars. Unfortunately the ending left me feeling that this book only deserved 2 stars.

That ending irked me, and I felt like I wish I didn't spend the several hours reading this book. It also required more editing, and some of the sentence structure was lacking. Misused phrases

Avery Olive doesn't kiss and tell. Except when it comes to writing about hot supernatural guys. She lives with her husband and son in Red Deer, Alberta, where she spends way too much time reading, writing and avoiding house work.

She's the author of A Stiff Kiss, a young adult novel with a morbid twist on a classic fairytale, in reverse, and Won't Let Go, involving an amnesic ghostboy who just won
