HOLDING ON TO GEORGIA
He has secrets. A past that haunts him. He’s a tragic heartbreak waiting to happen. Call me crazy, but for some reason, I think I can be the one to save him.
It should have been me. Those words have haunted me every day since I lost her. North Carolina was supposed to be my fresh start. Instead I’m still stuck in this endless cycle of guilt and grief that I’m here and she’s…gone. I’m a disaster and romance is so far off my radar it’s laughable…until I meet the girl next door. A chance meeting in the elevator and suddenly I find something I never thought I’d have again. Hope. Too bad after what I did, I don’t deserve it…or her.
I haven’t exactly been lucky in love and the walls I’ve built up around my heart are like a fortress, but… there’s something about my sexy, new neighbor that makes me want to tear down every last one of them. I can see it, though. He has secrets. A past that haunts him. He’s a tragic heartbreak waiting to happen. Call me crazy, but for some reason, I want to be the one who saves him
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING
“I will be honest…I don’t read a lot of books. But this one is fabulous! I am a 30-something, brown haired girl who has been traveling around the world not worried about love. I can relate to this story so much. You need to read this story! I could not put it down.”
“As I read HOLDING ON TO GEORGIA by the talented Courtney Giardina, I was reminded of a roller coaster ride – sitting in the car as it slowly moves away from the loading dock, anticipating a few thrills but not quite prepared for the highs and lows, sharp turns, and unexpected bends as it races over the track. After disembarking, knees shaking, heart racing and emotionally spent, you think, “Dang . . . what a ride.””
” I was captivated by the initial mystery of the main male character and I found I was unable to put the book down because I was so eager to learn more about him. I felt the story flowed well and since I was so captivated by it I was able to finish reading it in one morning. Don’t forget the tissues though, this story is an emotional one!”
