Add to Goodreads:


Sadie Miller is attempting to change her ways and hide somewhere no one knows her former self. She only wants to finish her final year of college, obtain her degree, and get out from the hold of her affluent parents. Then she meets Brady Carsen, the lead singer of The Invisibles, a local band popular with the college crowd. She tries to stay away but quickly realizes that, although he might not be what she’s used to, he’s exactly what she needs and more importantly, everything she could possibly want. 
Unfortunately, Sadie’s troubled past left her with insecurities that make her question Brady’s true intentions. And while Brady is convinced that Sadie is the one for him, he has his own secrets that he fears will be their undoing. If they want to be together, they will have to stand united and fight the outside influences that are threatening to tear them apart. Can they put their pasts behind them for good in order to secure their future?


My Thoughts:

Twists, turns, and then some!

Sadie Miller has transferred to a new college, with only one year left, to escape everything that has happened in her past. This not-so-typical ex-sorority sister needs a new start, a new place, and a new outlook. A relationship is the furthest thing from her mind when she meets Brady Carsen. Your not-so-typical rocker. Immediately drawn to him, Sadie goes against her heart, and runs away as fast as she can.

"Brady has this pull over me, making it incredibly hard to keep my promise to myself. Just stick to the plan, I tell myself."

When Brady doesn't give up, Sadie eventually gives in. However, her past is always there to bring her down. With parents who expect more of her, a family that is broken, and a heart that has been ripped apart, Sadie is having a hard time giving her whole self over to Brady. She fears he will run the second he knows "the real Sadie".

"I could give a shit about your past. Hell, we all have pasts, Sadie. I refuse to let you throw this away."

Brady's intentions are clear, even though he also has his secrets, and now they just need to let each other in. 

"He came into my life so unexpectedly but honestly, I can't imagine it without him now."

Another un-put-downable book from Michelle Lynn! Dear world, meet Brady Carsen, your new book-boyfriend! Sadie and Brady's relationship just gets stronger as more past secrets are revealed. They do not let anything bring them down. Even when there are people who try their hardest to separate Brady and Sadie. 

There are so many twists in this book that I didn't see coming. I would think I had one thing figured out, but I would be wrong. Then I would really think I had the whole spiderweb of relationships together, but again, wrong. Don't Let Go definitely kept me on my toes.

Oh.. and let me mention that it flows seemlessly into the next-up by Michelle Lynn..
No, Don't Let Go is not a cliffhanger, the next book will be about alternate characters.

Be sure to mark your TBR's for Let Me In, coming in October!

Favorite Quote:

" 'Brady Carsen, who are you?', I ask, smiling over my menu.
'Your white knight, with an edge,' he jokes."



“I need you to trust me.” He grabs my hand, placing it in his lap. “I can’t tell you where I was Friday night, at least not yet. But believe me Sadie, I wasn’t with anyone else. You’re the only girl who consumes my thoughts, my dreams, and my mind. Please trust me when I say there is no one else,” his voice is desperate, saturating his soft brown eyes.
A big part of me believes him. My thoughts go to Jessa and how she now trusts guys again after what her ex-boyfriend did to her. I need to move on with my life; it’s been over a year and I still harbor all of the hurt and remorse. If I don’t start living my life, it is going to pass me by. Brady’s right, I never gave him a fair shot.
“I believe you,” I whisper, still unsure of my decision to give this a chance.
“Thank you, Sadie.” He releases the deepest breath in relief. “Now I have one more favor.” He peers over at me, continuing to hold my hand.
“What, Carsen?”
“Go on a date with me. A real date, just you and me from beginning to end,” he asks, squeezing my hand.
I close my eyes, willing myself to allow me to have this. Give myself the possibility to have happiness and accept the consequences. “Yes,” I answer him.


About Michelle Lynn

Michelle Lynn has always been a reader, but her passion has become a full-blown addiction since her husband bought her a Kindle for Mother's Day. She's pretty sure that he regrets this on a regular basis. Especially when she has it propped up next to the stove while she cooks, which often results in a burnt dinner. Or when he loses sleep because the glow from the screen wakes him up when he rolls over at three in the morning. He does agree, however, that she uses this gift more than any other he has ever gotten her. She joking counters that, because of some of the steamy novels she reads, he also benefits more from this gift than any other he has gotten her. ;)

Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.






The giveaway consists of 4 - $25 Gift Cards to Amazon; 2 - copies of signed Love Me Back paperbacks; 4 - ebook copies of Don't Let Go; 6 - Don't Let Go Bookmarks
