Release Date: March 12, 2017


Three countries. Two months. All expenses paid. Just you and me. About you: You’re fun loving, adventurous and you have a wicked sense of humor. You’re spontaneous, open minded and creative. You live for today because you never know what tomorrow holds. I'm Erin and this isn't your usual Craigslist Ad. I’m twenty-four, and full disclosure, I’m dying. But I don’t want your pity. What I want is your help. I’m not looking for a nanny, or for someone to hold my hand. I want a friend, a confidante, a partner in crime. I want you.

My Review 

Don't Hold Back is an emotional and beautiful story about love and loss. Right from the blurb I was hooked and chapter one cemented the fact that it was unputdownable. Erin and Cade both have demons chasing them. As they embark on their journey together, they realize that even in uncertain times, sometimes friendship and love are intertwined and unavoidable. 

Erin is determined to spend the rest of the times she has doing something for herself. She wants to live and what better way to do that than by traveling and experiencing as much about life as she can. To do so she needs a partner. Someone that won't treat her like she's breakable-even if the reality is much different. Enter Craigslist. When Cade applies it seems like fate since they met briefly once before. As they start their journey, both Erin and Cade get much more than they expected. Cade may have only joined Erin for one reason and it's not only because he recognized the girl in the ad. But as he gets to know Erin, his plans change and so does the direction of his life. 

Few books make me go directly to one click the rest in the series but that's exactly what I did when I finished this book. I truly enjoyed Erin and Cade's story. Even knowing the outcome. At times I smiled. At times I couldn't flip pages fast enough. And at times I was desperately clutching my chest because my heart hurt. I did feel that the relationship aspect happened a bit fast. I realize the reason for their trip but I wished for a bit more to play out in the middle. Aside from that, my first novel by Missy Johnson was a big winner and I can't wait to go back and read the rest of this series.
