Don't close your eyes (Bryant brothers novel) By Hilary Storm

My life ended the day I answered the door and found out James had died. Writing has become my only release and secluding myself from the people who constantly judge me for my way of grieving has made me famous. I'm not ready to love again, in fact it's not even a thought. 

Someone needs to tell that to Liam. He's breaking through all of the walls I've worked so hard to create. How can one man be so intriguing? He just gets me, maybe a little too well.

I honestly thought Don't close your eyes was going to be one of those mushy, depressing novels. Where the woman finds out her bloke isn't who she thought he was from the blurb. Don't ask me why because the book is nothing like it. 
It's been a year since her husband or boyfriend died, I'm still unsure of which. 

She is off to her first book signing, and on the plane she meets Liam. Holy hell, he's hot too ladies. His attitude though? Sucks ass. but you learn to love it. or ignore it, which ever's easier for you lol 
Only, Liam isn't really who he says he is. Well kinda. I don't want to give to much away, but I didn't expect what happened to happen. I would have liked to have read a bit more for the ending. I think that was my only downfall and the fact we never got to meet any of the people from her previous life, the life before James died. 
I do love Liam though, he's so sweet and caring, but so goddamn rude all at the same time. I wanted to slap him myself at times. I got whiplash from the signals he was shooting her way.

Hold me closer (Rebel walking #4) By Hilary Storm

Holden Walker has put his personal life on hold to help Rebel Walking with security on tour. His ‘all work and no play’ attitude has him in trouble with some of the new female family members in his life. 

Lyndsey Douglas couldn’t pick a good man if her life depended on it. She’s been burnt one too many time and isn’t thrilled at all when she’s tricked into a date. Her attempt to run him off almost works - until he has to save her from danger. 

What happens when Holden meeds the most frustrating woman in his life? Will Lyndsey stop pushing him away long enough to see that he’s not like all the other guys? Can she open her heart after everything she’s been through?

This is the first Rebel walking novel that I have read and also first from Hilary. I should have realized it was a series before starting with this one. Even though it can be read as a stand a lone I felt like I was missing parts of it. I didnt know what was going on around him, even though it had nothing to do with the main plot it would be nice to know who each character is.

I found the book a great read, though I felt it lacked something for me. I read it in one sitting and enjoyed it. Especially the ending. 

Holden is your typical book boyfriend. He is protective, alpha male, strong, good looking, sexy and did i mention protective? 
The two characters were well suited for each other. I am hoping to read more from the author and catch up with the first three in the rebel walking series. Hopefully we get to read about Lyndsey's brother. He had me intrigued.
