When your past threatens to destroy your future; how long will you hang on before Letting Go?
Cassidy Charles is picking up the pieces of her life after another terrible tragedy. The last thing she's looking for is love. James bursting back into her life is the last thing she expected, but possibly everything she needs. She can’t deny the attraction, but can she get past the fact that he may be the reason she’s lost so much? He opens up a whole new world to her that she’s only dreamed about and that she easily falls into. As a result, her relationship with him reveals secrets from her past she thought were long forgotten.
James Benedict III, local playboy and successful real estate investor hasn’t stopped thinking about her since that fateful night all those months ago. He has her back in his life, but for how long? Forever if he has anything to say about it. As more and more secrets from her past are revealed, his own demons and tragedies loom overhead threatening to destroy everything he's built and done for her. He wants her in his life, but because of him her world comes tumbling down, again.
Will they discover that the love they have is strong enough to survive everything and everyone trying to tear them apart before it’s too late?
I was pretty excited to receive the ARC of this book (which the blog was given for an honest review). This is the first book in a series by a new Indie Author. I think what shocked me the most was how incredibly steamy the book was. Scene after scorching scene, the bar gets raised. At first, I thought of Fifty Shades of Grey for a small portion, but Christian Greys got nothing on James Benedict III. He is a take control, no holds barred type of guy, but he also has a tender, loving side. Seriously, how could you not fall in love with him?
There is one particular part of the book that is without a doubt my favorite part. James pulls up in front of Cassidy's, looking completely yummy and on a motorcycle, to bring her for a ride. They go for cider and donuts and end up having a picnic. After they get back to Cassidy's townhouse, their passion just explodes. I don't want to give too much away from the book, but Cassidy and James are white hot together!
There are some twists and turns and you are left without answers for parts, but I knew that would be the case going in (as it is part of a series). In the last quarter of the book, you are given information that starts to fill in some of the empty pieces of the puzzle, but you are still left wondering what's to come. In my opinion, this is a great first book by J.M. Witt and I gave it a 4 star review.

About the Author:
I've dreamed of writing romance novels since I was little. After having baby #4, who may or may not have been fathered by Christian Grey, I decided it was time to pursue my dreams.
When I'm not volunteering at the schools of my children, running to various appointments, enjoying time with my friends and my book club, dating my husband, or avoiding cleaning my house, I'm writing!
I love music and believe that books and music can't exist without the other. My goal is for you to read more than a good book, but for you to have an experience!
