The stupid squirrel was to blame.
Or maybe it was her own fault. She should have been paying attention while walking Bobo. Instead, Annalee was distracted, thinking about the evening ahead and how much she wasnt looking forward to it.

I was looking for something quick to read that I had good and solid romance to it and luckily I found that with Don't Let Go. It's only 62 pages so I read it quickly in one sitting, and then went back to re-read it

*ARC Review for Crazy Daisy Book Whore* by Megan

This is a sweet, second-chance love story about Annalee and Eric. Annalee is recently divorced from her husband, who cheated on her. She was dreading attending her high school reunion knowing that her ex would be there. While walking her neighbor's dog through the park, Annalee runs into her best friend's younger brother, and former crush, Eric. He has grown into a kind, handsome man, who still makes her heart beat a little faster. Eric,

I liked this short story. It was a sweet second chance romance that is years in the making.

This is Eric and Annalee's story. Eric and Annalee have a past. The last time they saw each other, Annalee saved the night for Eric and they shared a scorching kiss. Now at her high school reunion, the last person she expects to see is Eric or for him to help her out like she did all those years ago. Can these two take a chance on each other? Throw in drama, a high school reunion, and you get one

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This lovely, quick read is perfect for a relaxing evening. It is sweet, passionate and a second chance that both characters deserve. There is a back story, some angst and an oversized dog, all thrown in with a high school reunion, foolish ex-husband, a pregnant best friend, and even the swing shown on the front cover - amazing how much Ms Raines can fit into a novella! !

Those looking for a sweet yet sensual interlude will find this tale of star-crossed lovers a delightfully entertaining read. With a nicely paced storyline, and an unrequited connection between the two main characters that keeps them from their HEA, readers quickly become fully immersed in this endearing and steamy read. Theirs is an emotional journey full of misunderstandings and fear that keeps you guessing until the very end in a heartwarming and much deserved conclusion.

Annalee is a likable

This is a fun quick read that I enjoyed completely. Dont Let Go is a short novella about a divorcee, Annalee and her best friends brother Eric, who are given a second chance to find love.

The story is well written. The characters are developed in a realistic way. In fact, I love the characters and the way they evolve as the story unfolds. Annalee gets stronger and really grows as the story progresses. Eric is the perfect male love interest. He is easy on the eyes with a kind heart and a fun

Dont Let Go is the first book I have read by this author, I was lucky enough to have been given a copy in exchange for an honest review so here goes....

This is quite a traditional romance and really reminded me of the romances I used to steal off my mom as a kid.

This is more of a novella length story but it manages to not try to fit in too much info into a short amount of words.

I liked both Annalee and Eric

Dont Let Go is a story about second chances, survival, and hope. Annalees life is turned upside down with her unexpected divorcee. Hurt, embarrassed, and lost, she pieces her life back together. I enjoyed seeing her regain her footing, and forge forward. It was a testament to what I feel is a womans strength. I could feel the pain with her as she was forced with wagging tongues in the small town, and

Annalee is putting on a brave face. After a difficult divorce, shes still just trying to find her way. Until one afternoon, she runs into the one man who she never thought she would see again Eric Sorenson.

Eric has always held a special place in her memory. Hes her best friends younger brother who was painfully shy and awkward because he stuttered, but she was always able to see beyond that. So when his date for the Senior Prom backs out, Annalee steps in and the kiss that they share on that

Don't Let Go by Nona Raines is a ridiculously sweet short story romance. It's a snippet in the lives of Annalee and Eric, and it's just perfect.

It's Annalee's high school reunion and she's freshly divorced, doubting every choice she's made in her life and Eric shows up in town to rescue her just like she rescued him at his Prom years ago. Eric has been in love with Annalee since that memorable prom night and Annalee is just clueless. She is amazed at the man he's grown into but can't quite

Don't let Go was a different take on the whole friends to lovers, unrequeited love twist. This time, it was the guy who'd been in love for half his life. I enjoyed watching the fallout of letting those feelings out.

Annalee has been dealing with her divorce for a while, but her form of dealing is just not moving on at all. She's holding on to the pain and the hurt, and not allowing herself a chance to find someone else.

Eric shows up unexpectedly and and decides its now or never and he's going

Loved this love story. It is perfect in every way.

Annalie rescued Eric years ago from humiliation when his senior prom date dumped him at the last minute. Annalie surprised him by showing up at his door insisting she was going to be his date. Eric fell in love with her that night but she was a college girl and later married.

Now the tables are turned. Annalie is dressing for her 15 year high school reunion and she is dreading it because her ex husband will be there with his

I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read from Nona Raines. It had humour, drama, lust, love, a sleazy ex-husband, loveable best friend and an "all grown up" very sexy old flame.

Nona's writing style is great and her characters are fabulous. I enjoyed that they made fools of themselves and were involved in very real situations that were easy to relate to. These people weren't

This was a sweet best-friend's-brother story, though maybe it was a bit sweeter because of what she'd meant to him all these years. He basically fell in love with her on his prom night, when she treated him like a guy, and not the stuttering nerd others viewed him as. But she ended up marrying her high school sweetheart, then getting divorced, and she feels like she has something to prove surrounding the divorce. That she's not broken, that she doesn't need her ex, etc. But it's time for a ...more

Don't Let Go is a quick read that will have you so enthralled in the storyline, that you fail to notice anything going on around you. I loved the characters! Annalee and Eric were the type of characters that you would love to have as friends. Annalee rescued Eric years ago, when his date stood him up for prom. Annalee was the older girl who was best friends with his sister. Eric has never forgotten that night and when Annalee comes back into town for a reunion, it's his turn to rescue her. Nona ...more

Great story! Very quick read. I really enjoyed Nona Raines Don't Let Go. To see Annalee hurt by her now ex husband Denny and run into her best friend Dee's brother Eric while walking Bobo the dog. Even though Annalee had feelings for Eric she thought it was wrong cause he was her best friend's LITTLE BROTHER. Well big deal cause you know what you can't help who you fall in love with :) I think Nona did a great job telling the story. I really would have love to read more about Eric and Annalee ...more

What a fabulous story. I loved all the characters, well except for Annalee's douche-bag of an ex! Bobo was a favorite and had me smiling from the get go. Thom and Dee were great together and everyone needs a bestie like Dee :)

The reunion was a great, something I would dread going to! And the story that unfolded from that was wonderful.

What I loved the most was the table being turned and a male having to worry if he had been used or not, not the typical female scenario.

Ill be honest - Im not fond of stand-alone novellas. I think its because I dont have enough time to get to know the characters. Dont Let Go is different. I loved the story, but I wanted it to be longer.
This is a story of revenge but also love. Its also a good one. Im a teacher so I immediately felt an affinity with the main character, Annalee. I fell in love with Eric. I finished Dont Let Go with a smile on my face but I still wish that this book was longer.
I gave Dont Let It Go 4 stars.

This was a good second chance love story all about timing and being ready to take a leap of faith. Annalee is a divorced woman who thinks she has dealt with her divorce and left it in the past. When Eric, her best friends brother, comes into town in time to take her to her class reunion and wants so much more she is afraid. Eric has loved her for years and Annalee definitely has feelings for him. Is the timing finally going to be right?

I enjoyed this novella and would recommend it to anyone

I loved this. Nona has way with her writing her scenes are so real. I feel like yup, I saw that or hey, that happened to me, or even better, that was amazing and maybe even possible, where can I find it. LOL

Annalee and Erics story is really sweet. First love, second chances and poor timing. Story has a fast pace, but like I said earlier it all seems possible. Love Annalee.

Whod believe she could be such a straight up hussy? She loved it

Sweet, sexy, steamy I couldnt put it down. Fantastic

Don't Let Go is a quick, sweet read.
Annalee & Eric's story is one of reconnecting and second chances.
You get just enough back story that the story flows well from the first page to the last. The characters are loveable and realistic.
Being a novella it moves quickly to get the whole story into a short story but the author did an amazing job of fitting so much into this book, I couldn't have asked for more!

Nona Raines became hooked on romances when she first picked up "The Flame and the Flower" by Kathleen Woodiwiss (and she's not telling how long ago that was). Romances may have changed since then, but her love for a good love story has not. She's been writing off and on for years, but it was only when she joined the Central New York Romance Writers Association that she finally gained the support ...more
