There’s only one man for wild child Jenna McCaffrey—her best friend’s sexy grouch of a brother. For years, she’s wanted to get her hungry hands on the straight-laced professor and break his careful control. She’d come so close once... But now, her friend’s wedding party ranch getaway is the perfect opportunity for a do-over. And poor Rob won’t know what hit him.

Professor Rob Lindgren is close to attaining his final dream—tenure. Unfortunately, the university’s morality clause is making his life hell. He’s dying to let loose, and a weekend away from home is just what he needs...until he sees Jenna. She’s exactly as he remembers—still brash, still bold, still damn near irresistible. And Rob is tired of fighting...

Too bad they can only have one wicked weekend together. No way will Jenna’s wild ways ever fit in Rob’s perfectly planned life…

Perfect for a quickie..
This novella is perfect for an hour or two of downtime. I picked this one up because it had a little extra spice promised between the pages.

There’s something about your big brother’s best friend that’s off-limits. We grew up around them and all those teenage ho ...more

Don't Hold Back by Renee Dominick is book Two in the To Have and To Hold series. This is the story of Jenna McCaffrey and Rob Lindgren. I have read the previous book, but feel this can be a standalone book if you choose to do so.

I absolutely loved this book! I loved Rob and Jenna and everything in between. It's a great story, simple plot with two complex characters that are figuring things out, and for Rob it's almost always the hard way.
The book starts out with bride to be Chloe who has planned a getaway weekend to bring h ...more

Jenna McCaffrey has long held a desire for a certain someone and she'll do whatever it takes to get her hands on him.

Rob Lindgren is this close to getting what he's worked for in his career, but this weekend away is just what needs to think, relax, and refocus.

Their connection is intense, but they a ...more

Horses and Weddings Bring these Frenemies to Lovers

I liked it. It wasn't perfect, by any means, with less "change" for the main characters, and more "change of mind," but was cute. Secondary characters were folks that were interesting without pulling focus from the main relationship. A di ...more

This is the second book in the series and can be read as stand-alone. Jenna has had a thing for her best-friend’s brother for years. Rob is a professor and his goal is tenure, Jenna’s wild ways don’t really fit into that goal. Will the weekend they share be enough. This is a fast-paced read with ple ...more
