Regi gets all of the stars!! This was a really hard book to read and rate because while I adored one character (Regi), I absolutely abhorred another (Mia). So all 3.5 stars in my rating go towards Regi's stellar performance in this story. He was so pathetic and yet so endearing and adorable that I couldn't help but root for him from the start. His poor heart was put through the wringer and a huge part of me wanted him to find someone else to g

That was bad in three ways.
1) Technical errors in the book. Words spelled wrong. random extra characters and letters. A simple spell check would have fixed them all. I'm guessing the author simply does not care to spend the five minutes doing that.

2) Writing errors. Sentences that switch tense, have bonus words, are missing words, wrong names. Again seems like someone does not care about her readers.

3) Really idiotic story that has no substance, lacks proper motivation and plops in extra charact
I figured out that to me there is a very distinct difference between smutty romance and hedonistic debauchery, this book falls under the latter. This may not have any cheating and has a HEA, though the guy sticking a dick in anything that moves while claiming to be in love with the girl and pursuing her is hardly acceptable, at least they were not in an exclusive relationship, but this book has an extreme debauched view of life and it doesn't sit well with me or my morals. Specially not with the ...more

After reading Giving it Up I couldn't wait to read Pin Me Down, which is Mia and Regis story. I loved getting to know more of these characters that I loved from the first book.

I was so wrong about Regi from the first book. I thought he was so arrogant and extremely smug & cocky. I couldn't of been more wrong he had such a sweetness behind the facade he put up for everyone to see. And Mia was so fierce and protective but, also a free spirit who I enjoyed so much more after knowing her story.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Mia and Regi have one of the most complicated relationships, that is going to play with your emotions. Their story spans over a few years and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat with anticipation. It's good to see a man working so hard to prove himself for a change and Mia isn't just falling at his feet. Do they get their happily ever after? You'll just have to read and find out!


Mia's quick to run, but Regi's right behind her. He sees past the facade she puts on for everyone.


"And if you run, I'll keep running right behind you keeping you safe, and hoping you'll let me in."

Definitely, swoon worthy. Regi's just a yummy specimen. Mia's character is strangely real. She's relatable. Very hot and steamy.

I received a book in exchange for an honest review

After being introduced to Holly Dodd's writing in Giving It Up at the same time as being introduced to the characters in the Brew House series, I was truly hooked and wrapped up in their college dramatic filled existence. So, I was beyond excited to read Mia and Regi's story in Pin Me Down. Holly left them shrouded in so much mystery at the end of Giving It Up that I couldn't help but want more of these two. Mia came off as so carefree with her
Janine - The World Was Hers for the Reading
I really enjoyed this second chance at love story by Holly Dodd.

Mia and Regi first meet in high school . . . where Regi knows right away that Mia is the one for him. However, Mia’s past has caused her to not only have a commitment phobia, but not to believe in love.

Flash forward a few years where we find that while Mia can’t seem to love Regi, she can’t quit him either. However, their sexual chemistry has never been an issue. Random hook-ups keep happening between them and every time Regi tries

Regi and Mia had feelings for each other in high school however due to Mia’s experience with the destruction of her parent’s relationship she wanted no part of a relationship of her own and they both went to different colleges. They are back at the same school and although they are involved Mia can’t commit as she wants him and then she pushes him away. Regi handles the hot and cold by having one night stands however one night he chooses the wrong girl and everything comes to a head. Will Mia re ...more

Regis and Mia are the proof that if you love someone and let them go if they're yours they'll come back. The only catch was it took some on and off time, lots of sex and a key to do the trick.

Mia had so many daddy issues and feelings of worthlessness thanks to it. Regi let himself be pushed away, dove into hedonistic sex with anything that walks to see if he could forget her and find his heart again.

It took a royal screwup from her sister and his routine, to finally push it. With a slight push

I loved Mia and Regi together! Regi may seem like a man whore, but don’t let his reputation fool you. It’s nice to see a man genuinely work to get a girl’s attention. I love an independent woman, but Mia stubbornness got on my nerves. I understand her issues and why she is the way so is but after finding out about Mia and Regi’s history I wanted them to be together, cheering them on. This is a really good story about two people who get a second chance at love. One of them didn’t even know they h ...more

Holly well done with this one, you brought the demons out of Mia with Regi's help. You brought together two people that needed each other more than one thought she knew. Your writing flows from character to character and you kept me hooked to see if these two could make it. I love when a story is told from both sides cause you're not wondering what the other is thinking, you know what both feel and are thinking. There's two sides to a story and having both tell their POV helps bring it all toget ...more

Regi has been in love with Mia for 5 long years. Mia has some issues she has been dealing with since she was younger and feels that she doesn't need a man in her life. That can only lead to heartache Right? Regi finally convinces Mia to give them a shot. Can they overcome their obstacles and get their happily ever After? Such a great book! Can't wait for the next one.

"Love isn't easy, it's not some fairytale where everything will go perfectly all the time. But it's worth it"

Holly Dodd wrote a wonderful story about giving love a chance in Pin Me Down. It is the second book in the Brewhouse series, but it can be read as a standalone. It's the story of Mia and Regi. They been having casual sex for a few years, but she pushed him away when he wanted more. Mia has a commitment phobia and Regi does what he thinks is the best way to get her out of his system; sleep

Final Score - 5 Stars!

This is the second book in this series and I have to say - WOAH!

We were introduced to Regi and his man-whore self in the first book (back when Jo was trying to get his attention). The object of Regi's affections is Mia (Jo's best friend), but Mia is hiding her true feelings and has pushed Regi out of her life, in the romantic sense.

What we learn in their backstory is that Regi and Mia have been fighting their feelings since High School. Regi fell in love with Mia before h

This is the second book in the series, we first met Regi and Mia in Giving It Up I love Holly's style of writing so I was excited for this book. Pin Me Down is the story of commitment phobe Mia and Regi the man who despite his manwhore ways has loved & been in love with Mia for years.

I had Regi pegged all wrong from what I'd read of him in the first book I thought he was a cocky, arrogant playboy with no real respect for woman especially Mia but I couldn't have been more wrong yes he was a cock

Another amazing book from Holly Dodd! The Brewhouse Pub crew is back and this time the leader of this social gathering is going to get more than she ever thought she deserved. Mia has grown up thinking she is unworthy, from her father walking out on the family and the things his mother said to her and the endless parade of men her mom brought home trying to find love. That was the one thing she swore she would never do, love, or be that vulnerable but then again she never expected the tsunami th ...more

Review: I absolutely love Giving It Up by Holly Dodd, the first book in the Brewhouse series, and I couldn’t wait for the second book, Pin Me Down, to be released! Pin Me Down can be read as a standalone, but I encourage you to read Giving It Up first, as the characters are so well developed and the story line deliciously naughty.

Holly is something else. I fell in love with all of the characters in the first book and I was so excited to see where should would take Regi and Mia. I was so curious to see what had gone on between them and how Regi and Jo almost got together. Finally, we were getting answers!!! And BOY did we get answers!!!!! I finally got to find out EVERYTHING I had not so patiently been waiting for and so much more!

There are always layers to characters, but we don't always get to see the history of them. T

I felt like I was on edge for most of this book wanting to know what was going to happen next for these two. I was happy to see the back story of Mia and Regi and finally figure out why it's so hard for her to trust men. I loved seeing Regi work to win Mia over instead of her just falling under his spell instantly. If you want to see if they get their second chance at their happily ever after do not wait ...more

Mia and Regi... just wow

Their relationship was very interesting to say the least considering it started in their senior year of high school till now. Regi has always known he loved Mia, unfortunately for him, Mia believes she's not worthy of love because of her childhood. Can Regi finally get into Mia's heart or is it time to let her go?

Very steamy read but I expect nothing less from our very feisty couple.

When I read 'Giving it up' and meet this couple, Regi and Mia, I didn't have idea about their story. I knew something was there, and I was curious to discover it. So, when I started to read and put the pieces together.

Mia is Jolene's best friend. She's smart, sexy and confident, and she doesn't do relationships. She's all about the friendship with benefits.You know, that kind of girls that men see as a golden ticket in college. Regi, in the other hand, is our tipical manwhore, well...that's not

Pin Me Down is the second book in the Brewhouse series, and it's Regi and Mia's story. The story was amazing, hearfelt, hot and steamy, and I couldn't put it down. I liked the characters. We got to see a different side of Regi, and understand why Mia is the way she is. They were so perfect for eachother. This was an enjoyable read and I can't wait to read Angela's story.

Regi has it bad for Mia unfortunately she's scared of getting involved & won't let him in.
They have a history together but Mia keeps it a secret.
This book is a standalone and has its ending. I enjoyed the characters and was pleased to have the others mentioned in this book.
Can't wait for the next book.

Another brilliant addition to the brewhouse gang.
