Everyday Rowena

I'm Rowena and I blog at Book Binge. I read lots of romance, YA and lately, NA. You'll find a lot of those on my shelves.

Hold Me Down Hard - Cathryn Fox When I first requested this book for review, I wasn’t expecting it to be so short. But it’s a short story and with short stories, they either leave you wanting more or you’re happy with it. With this book, I was happy with it. It was a cute story about two neighbors who are good friends that come to love the hell out of each other but don’t know how to broach the topic since they’re both been firmly, friend-zoned.Eden is an actress from Iowa who has the hots for her best friend/next door neighbor, Jay. Jay is a cop and he’s trying his damndest to keep things platonic between him and Eden because his world is filled with danger and he doesn’t want to subject Eden to all of that. At the same time, he won’t give up his dangerous job or world because of reasons that are his own. But damn does he want Eden.Their coming together story was too cute for words. Eden wants to be more than friends with Jay and with the help of her friends, she finds out a way to make that dream, a reality and the way she went about it was cute and funny. Jay was a total stud and I ate him up.This was a great, quick read for those times when you don’t have the time or energy to invest in a drawn out drama of a book. It was enjoyable. I will definitely be checking out more from this author in the future.Grade: 4 out of 5
