Author: Lila Rose

Genre:  Romantic Suspense

Publication Date:  December 2013

Description: Zara Edgingway is a twenty-six-year-old secretary. She has a daughter that apparently knows-it-all and a best friend that could possibly have the mouth of Satan, but she’s been with her through hell and back. Then there’s the hunk’a’licious biker neighbour finally showing interest in her.
If only she isn’t about to face her next obstacle in life, the one she ran from six years ago: her ex husband.

Talon Marcus is the president of the Hawks Motorcycle Club. For two years he’s had his eye on the quiet, reclusive, yet sassy, neighbour Zara. Finally, he has the chance to claim her as his woman. Just when her past catches up with her, she’ll need, not only his protection, but the help from his biker brothers.
Now, if only she’d stop fighting him along the way.


I received an advance copy of this book as a beta reader.

What a fun and quick read! Holding Out is full of suspense and Lila Rose has a great sense of humor.

The characters are each unique in their own way. The main character, Zara, is probably the most “normal” of the bunch. Her best friend has a mouth that would make a sailor cringe. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside.

Even though there is some serious stuff going on in the story, Lila Rose keeps it light with her humor.

I recommend Holding Out as long as you don’t mind swearing. There is a lot but, since bikers play a big part, it does make it more realistic.
