Author: Michelle Lynn
Release date: August 25th
Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets


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?


“So, this is where the magic happens with you guys?” I ask.
“I wouldn’t say that.” He wraps his arms around my waist, kissing my neck. “I could show you some magic if you prefer.” He brushes my hair to the side, moving his lips down my shoulder and back up to my neck.
I close my eyes. His warm breath feels incredible. I can’t let this lead to something more so I pull away, making my way over to the switchboard. “What does this do?” I fiddle with a button.
He comes up behind me and kisses my neck again. “Do you really want to know?” he whispers while his tongue flicks my earlobe. I close my eyes in pleasure again, willing my heart to calm down.
“Brady,” I sigh.
“Come here.” He grabs my hand and leads me to the couch. He positions me on his lap and rests his hands around my waist, bringing me closer to him. “I just want to kiss you, Sadie. I will never rush you,” he promises.


Don’t Let Go grabbed hold of me immediately and I loved every single page!  Michelle Lynn is an accomplished author who weaves us through this heart breaking love story.
This is a great 4.5 star read!

Right out of the gate we see a side of Sadie that is less than favorable because well.... she is a slut.  At that time in her life she was running and hiding from some very dark and sad demons. Determined to start over, Sadie transfers universities for her senior year.  She is hell bent on leaving her past in the past in hopes of gaining her parents love and respect.

"My parents deserve it and Brady Carsen would veer me off the course of a trouble-free life."

Brady is just….. so swoon worthy! I had the hots for him within seconds of meeting him. He is the rock star senior at Western College and appears to be the typical bad boy.  We quickly learn that Brady has a very caring compassionate heart.  Sadly, Brady also has secrets he is carrying around and ones he is scared to death to share with anyone outside of his family.

“God… I hope you love me half as much as I love you. You’ll have to in order to deal with this bullshit.” ~ Brady says to a sleeping Sadie

Although with their opposite appearances, Brady and Sadie’s attraction was immediate. However, Sadie is sure she has “dated” Brady’s type and is bound and determined to stay far away from him.

“His voice carries throughout the bar/house. At first it is slow and steady but quickly builds into a faster beat. He appears completely enthralled in the moment, shutting his eyes from time to time, as though he feels every word. It is the sexiest thing I have ever witnessed and I know I can’t stay. This will only end one way, me in his bed and him ignoring me tomorrow.”

My heart breaks for both characters as they move through the pain it takes to overcome their pasts. Will they learn to trust each other enough to share their secrets? Can Brady let Sadie help him deal with his family’s struggles. Find out these answers and more! I know you will fall in love with Brady and Sadie just as I did - GRAB IT TODAY!

Michelle is currently working on Grant and Jessa story in LET ME IN! I can’t wait to get my hands on their book. Both Grant and Jessa had such strong supporting roles in Don’t Let Go their story is bound to light up your kindle!


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.
