Holding on to Georgia

To Rylan Bradley, love is overrated and forever only happens in fairy tales. She’s perfectly content with her single, thirty-something life until a chance meeting in an elevator finds her staring into the eyes of Wesley Kade.

But, there’s a story behind those brown eyes that he’s not ready to tell.

As Rylan and Kade struggle to untangle their feelings for each other, the reality of their pasts resurface and threaten to take it all away.

Will a fateful night, an old flame and an unread letter bring them closer together or tear them apart forever?

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!”
