This novella is a great little hold over for fans like me who are intrigued with James and Lola. The title had me worried, because I don’t want these two to let go of each other, but at the same time, this is what makes Ms. Bianca’s books feel so real. Life doesn’t operate in one straight line and neither do relationships.
James visits Lola on campus and basically it’s take-a-porn-star-to-school-day for Lola and believe me when I say, James is never boring! As usual with the VV&V series, the

Here's the thing, I have read this wonderful series by Bianca Giovanni before she got a book deal, so I know what happens later on. This one takes place inbetween Exposed and Diving In (I think). Still knowing what I know I can't help but become frustrated. Why can't they see they are are in love?!?!? WHY?? I love James! I love Lola! They just need their heads knocked together. If that were even possible I would be the first one to do the knocking. I know that there has to be tension, and that t ...more

James and Lola….I didn’t think I could fall even more in love with them. I’ve read the whole series thus far and it has been a great ride. This latest installment feels like an episode of Behind the Music with J & L. The first books didn’t go in depth with what happened with them between the years (which was one of the things I loved about the originals), but Letting Go gives you just enough to keep you going until the next James and Lola adventure. Thanks Ms. B for giving us two unforgettab ...more

This in-between story just got me excited to start reading of the most unlikely pair of BFF's.

In here, James is more vulnerable because he bares his feelings and fears of the future. The lines are a little blurred because he tries not to be an ass to Lola's guy friends, specially to the one who has his eye on her. I laughed out loud in a lot of scenes, specially when James makes Lola blush with all the sex talk.

I still wonder where all this more than friendly love would lead.

James may be a porn star and constantly surrounded by willing women, but he treats Lola like royalty. Their friendship is one of a kind. I enjoy seeing James' vulnerable side around Lola. As for Lola, she is incredibly supportive and nurturing, never judging James. I hope they can live near each other again. I'm addicted to this series.
