Her body is determined in having its own way, while she, in turn, does her best to protect the child she's now carrying. It doesn't help that her stress levels are off the charts, either. Part of her wishes that she can do without all of the duplicity and deception going on around her. Another part of her, however, wishes she could understand the truth, once and for all.
Determined to make sense of the secrets cropping up around her, Ivy delves into the past. She knows shedding light on what others don't know is going to hurt, but that's a risk she's willing to take. She has to. If she and Eric are to be happy, they'll need to confront everything they've been keeping from one another. Granted, there's more at stake than any of them could have imagined. For the sake of love, however, she's willing to do what's necessary to make sure all wrongs are set to right.
As the situation spirals out of control, and Ivy does her best to hold on the fragile thread holding her together, she does best to move forward. She knows things aren't exactly what she wants them to be, but she'll do everything to salvage whatever she can. Her love for Eric is part of what drives her, including the child they now have together. If they're to succeed in making their love and lives work, they'll need to sort out their differences. The question is, how can they do that when they're always second guessing themselves at every turn?
A bittersweet end to what has been an emotional series, Hold Me Tight answers every loose question, and tidies up the threads left behind from books one and two. Ivy and Eric's relationship has been volatile from the very start. They've done their best to overcome each adversity, but things tend to take their toll.
Faith has done a wonderful job in setting things straight for them, once and for all. It's nice to see them get their happy ending. Granted, they've a lot more going for them now with their baby's arrival. Faith has certainly done these characters justice. I've enjoyed this series very much, and look forward to more of Faith's works soon enough....more

A world where faerElena Watkins lived her life ignorant of the world around her. As a child, her father told her stories about a world named Paegeia. A world where faeries, dragons, and all sorts of other creatures exist. In her mind, the place was nothing but a fairy tale. Something her father told her about in order to keep her placated at night. For awhile, all that was fine and dandy. Until the moment, she and her father found themselves running for their lives from an unknown evil.
Losing her father to a dragon, no less, Elena soon realizes that all of the stories he told her about are really true. Paegeia does exist, and she's very much a part of it. Whisked away to this new world, she's forced to confront a truth her father has kept from her for so long. Part of her understands why he's kept his secrets. While another part of her detests him for leaving her foundering in a dark abyss she may never get out of.
To her dismay, Elena is soon pushed toward the Dragonia Academy, a place where young Dragonians learn about who they are and how to master their powers. Everything she sees is mind-boggling to her. Back on Earth, she was nothing special. There was nothing to distinguish her from the person she now is in Paegeia. The realm's residents are determined in getting her to accept who and what she's now become. Sadly, that's easier said than done. Most especially, when secrets continue to surround her existence. Secrets, she realizes, that may prove to be her undoing in the long run.
A delightful start to what seems to a very interesting series, Firebolt thrusts the reader into Elena's hectic life. She's just a teenager trying to make the most of the world she lives in. A teenager who's never truly had a normal life. Adrienne has built a world where not everything is as it seems. Elena must learn to contend with things she doesn't understand. Things that make her question what she knows about herself, her father, and this new and very unique world. The author's story-telling definitely captures attention, making it easy to immerse oneself in the world she's lovingly created....more
