Hold Me Close

Vanessa Vale

4.6 Stars
From 56 Reviews

Rachel wants one thing in life, a family of her own. But she’s not going to get it without a man. Or can she?

They may have ruined their chances in the past, but Matt and Ethan know Rachel’s the woman for them. When they discover her plans, they tell her they’ll give her exactly what she wants. The old fashioned way. Because once they get their hands on her, they’ll hold her close and never let go.

Warning: Panty melting! Hold Me Close is book 4 in the wildly dirty series where two obsessed alpha cowboys give the woman of their dreams exactly what she desires. This standalone HEA is all about her - no M/M.

Loved it!

Another great story by Vanessa. The Bridgewater series is off the charts hot! Sometimes our dreams as kids are just that dreams or when we are older something or someone better comes along and you open your eyes. Hold Me Close is Matt, Ethan and Rachel's story. I need more of the Bridgewater series.

You gotta love Bridgewater!

by Diane Kay

I recommend not reading this book before bed...you will stay up all night to finish it. I have loved all the Bridgewater books but really love this one. Rachel thinks she is frigid until she finds the right men. Vanessa Vale also shows that none of these alpha men are perfect and screw things up sometimes. An awesome book!

sexy and sweet, but it feels underdeveloped and more than a little rushed

by Valeen

I enjoyed Hold Me Close, but it isn't long enough for their relationship to develop fully, so I wasn't able to really connect with any of the characters or their story. Yes, it's sexy and sweet, but it feels underdeveloped and more than a little rushed. Still, I like Rachel, Ethan and Matt and I could sense the makings of a good story, it just wasn't fully fleshed out.

I'll still be on the lookout for more from Vanessa Vale, though, because her writing definitely has potential.

Hot and steamy!

by Book Lovin' Momma

Hold Me Close is a steamy standalone. Rachel has issues with physical intimacy, but maybe it took just the right balance, and the right men, to help her through her issues. Ethan and Matt were awesome, and I loved how different they were, almost opposites, but in a way that fit with Rachel perfectly. This was one sexy read. I have read some of Vanessa Vale's previous books, and I would have liked to see more "cowboy/ranch life" in this story, but it was a good read nonetheless.

A great alpha, steamy ménage. I love how the characters in this relationship connected so well. A really entertaining read. I would have loved the h to have had a bit more of a back bone though. Highly recommended for all of the alpha, ménage loving readers out there.

Never let go

This is the fourth book for this series although they can all be read as stand alones. This time we are meeting hunks Matt and Ethan and of course we can't forget the beauty in this story Rachel. This story is so hard to put down I really recommend you give yourself a few good hours so you can read through it in one sitting and don't go to bed like I did reading the book going one more chapter one more chapter because the book will be you've had no sleep but you've read a great book.

Would I recommend this book YES

Another Great Story by Vanessa Vale

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I confess that I am loving the Bridgewater series. They can be read as standalones but I am thoroughly enjoying them as a series. Rachel's first impression of Matt is not great at all and even after she has worked for him for months she still freezes him out. Yet Ethan, whom she also works for she is very relaxed and natural. The thing is that Matt and Ethan have both decided that she is The One for them but how on earth is this going to work out? Vanessa Vale conjures up a storming story every time. With gorgeous characters and strong heroines. She draws you into their world and you just read and enjoy the ride. Great chemistry in this very well written book. Definitely recommended! I look forward to the next book in the series.

Vanessa Vale has a way of immersing a reader into her character's lives, that leaves a reader feeling the emotions those characters experience. It isn't just reading, it's living inside the book.
Rachel is tired of being alone, and she longs for a family like the rest of her siblings have. Matt and Ethan are looking for the one who will complete them. Things start out a little rocky, but soon they will all have the things they have been searching for.
This is a beautiful romance, full of hope, despair, passion, and love. The pace is gentle, and it flows smoothly. The characters are people you fall instantly in love with. The love scenes are the perfect blend of steam and tenderness. It's a quick read, that doesn't feel rushed, and leaves you with a feeling of happiness and contentment.

Cowboy bosses? Yes, please!

This yummy addition to the Bridgewater County series goes a little outside town to a Resort Ranch. This sexy trio has added heat in their relationship since Rachel is sleeping with her bosses! Ethan and Matt have some obstacles to overcome before they can truly make Rachel theirs, despite their steamy encounters, so enjoy the ride!

I really like this series and the variety the author offers in her storylines. Hold Me Close is a great addition and I highly recommend it!

WHEN YOU KNOW—YOU KNOW

by Redrabbitt

Book four in the Bridgwater County series is another amazing adventure that is a spinoff from the historical based Bridgewater ménage series but takes place in present day. The town of Bridgewater, Montana still holds with the founding father principles of two or three alpha dominant males claiming and marrying one woman, and partnering for life. The method has proved successful for over a hundred years and why change what works? The story will read as a stand-alone.

Rachel Andrews has finished college, and at twenty-six years old, is still a virgin, and fears her desire for a family is dwindling. Having a bad experience with a date during college, she believes she is frigid and that her dream of the true desire of having a family of her own is slipping away, maybe there is another way to have a baby. She is returning to Bridgewater to take over the office manager position at a local guest ranch, Hawk’s Landing, held by her sister, Emmy.

Matt and Ethan have been friends for years, and with Matt’s money from his short lived career in baseball, he has purchased the land, and Ethan’s business skills have made it a success. Hawk’s Landing is ten miles outside of Bridgwater and has cabins for their guest. Both men know that they want to claim a woman together, forever, they are just waiting to find their “one.”

The plot will have Rachel returning to Bridgewater to take over her younger sisters job and working as the office manager at Hawk’s Landing. Meeting her new boss, Matt, at the rodeo comes with a shock as he makes sexual advances and then embarrasses her by telling her to leave. Ethan and Matt will have to walk a fine line around “their girl” until she can learn to trust them, and that includes keeping an eye on her away from work and being watchdogs when other men come sniffing around her.

A day request off for a doctor’s appointment will become an ice breaker and wake up call for Matt and Ethan to come clean and make their intentions known. “We want you in every sense of the word. We want your body, soul, and heart. We want you to be our woman. For the long term.” Can Matt and Ethan gain the trust of Rachel, and show her how special she is to them before it is too late? “We’re protective and possessive, and a little obsessive.”

The chemistry between Rachel and her two men, Matt and Ethan, is everything she ever wanted and they want to help give her, her dream, a baby. Rachel learns the difference between a fumbling, over aggressive college boy who doesn’t understand no, and two viral, sexy, dominant men who put her and her needs first. When a dream job comes into play, and one of her men needs to go, can Rachel walk away from this triad to help make way for the man she loves to succeed? “They were good men. Solid, dependable, loyal, and loving. If they made a commitment, they’d honor it, even if it stopped them from pursuing their dreams.”

Will their relationship come to an end, just months after it started? Rachel knows how important her dream of having a family is to her, and she won’t stand in the way of the men she loves and their dreams. Walking away from them will be the hardest thing she ever does. Will Ethan and Matt let her go? “It’s everything I’ve ever wanted, but never knew I needed.”
