BOOK REVIEW- Hold On to Me (Return to Haven Book 3) by Jules Bennett



What great main characters.  I adored them both!  There were so different from each other but still they also kept finding some things that they were alike or at least similar.    Both of them were also so deep in the Denial Trench that they could barely see other the rim!  You know that Denial Trench about this being just a fling.  
They had some really good support from close friends that they shared.  Of course, they are hiding and lying to those same beloved friends (and some family) so that they can keep things secret.
Another part of the story was the fact that each one of the friends including Jade and Cash were building something great together.  Something that would not only keep Haven, Georgia alive but to cause it to grow and prosper. 
Something that I found interesting but didn't really understand at first was  Jade's asking people close to her "would you rather ___or would you rather___?  She offered up two options with those questions.  It seemed odd to me at first until I realized it was a childhood coping measure.  She called it the "would you rather game."  After seeing her interactions with her domineering mother I could see why she needed it.  
I ended up enjoying this book.  The snarky interactions when Cash was pushing "Red's" buttons were often funny.  Man, she hated being called Red and he knew it but didn't back off about it either.  He wasn't being mean but they really did annoy each other.  They just hadn't realized that there was more to it than that.  
The emotional challenges were easy to understand and I liked the way the story ended.
