Saving Holiday by Lisa A. Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received an ARC for an honest review
Saving Holiday has quite a few secrets up its sleeve. Holiday, Holly, is an independent woman with a past that intends to keep her no matter the cost even if it's death.
Jackson is a hot cop with his own secrets that torture him nightly, especially when he meets Holly. She reminds him so much of his wife and the guilt takes over.
Lisa Adams has created strong characters with defined pasts that mingle into each other creating some terrific conflict once it gets going. The secrets they hide really pull out the intrigue of this piece.
While I found it started off a bit slow, the pace really picked up and the author nailed me with how much I had become emotionally involved with both Holly and Jackson. Lisa has a great gift for leading in the reader and I was only sad that the story ended so soon.
My favorite lines from the story are:
~~ He watched her lips, the gentle movement of her hips as she shifted her weight from side to side, and her brilliant green eyes that flickered with enthusiasm. He had no clue what she was saying, but he could watch her all day. It reminded him of—
"So what do you think?"
"Excuse me?" Jackson shook himself out of his reverie. ~~
