Peek Inside Hold Me Until Forever

Alex has been fighting his attraction to Ella Clark since her should-have-been-innocent sweet sixteen kiss burned down his world. He's damaged, and there's no way he'll ever drag her into his screwed up life. Until she offers him something he's always craved—steamy, no-strings sex inside his exclusive BDSM club. Where she'll be safe from the darkness that haunts him. Except there's nothing safe about being with Ella, and the more she gives, the harder it is to let her go. If he stays, he risks everything, but how can he walk away from the only woman he's ever needed?

3.5-4 stars.

Well, this was a hot read.

Just from the blurb, you kinda know what you’re getting yourself into, but I have to say this book was not the BDSM I thought. Which for me, wasn’t a problem at all, since I’m not much of a fan of hardcore BDSM stories.

So, this time we have Alex Grayson, a guy w ...more

By Deborah January 09, 2016

I really enjoyed this story! Ella has been in love with Alex since she was a teen. Alex has been in love with Ella ever since she kissed him one fateful night. This is their struggle to find each other. Both have been with others trying to replace the one they think they can't have.

Ella decides to ...more

This whole series has been about letting go of your past and rebuilding yourself. Where Jackson and Cooper gave their hearts to a society princess and a movie starlet respectively, Alex lost his a long time ago to Ella. But his issues with control forced him to keep his distance. It is only once he ...more

Ella Clark was in love with Alex Grayson for a very long time. But she couldn’t wait forever, Alex seemed to see her as his kid sister and it was time to move on, starting with her quitting the agency.

Alex, on the other hand, had been fighting his attraction to Ella since their first kiss when she w ...more

This is a steamy friends to lovers romance, the story of Ella and Alex. Friends since a young age, ever since Ella turned 16 and attempted a disastrous kiss with Alex, things between them have been cordial but hands off. Now Ella is leaving Alex's company where she's been a valued employee. And this ...more

Alex and Ella, unlike the couples in the previous books, have known each other since they were kids. They've been attracted to each other for eight years, however, neither of them had ever had the courage to confess their feelings to each other. Ella decides to go for broke and force Alex's hand by ...more

"Book gifted for honest review"

I loved this story! To put it plain and simple, the struggle of Alex and Ella and the constant journey to find one another; had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved how the BDSM lifestyle was portrayed. In essence this was one of very few books that have captured ...more

By Bette January 04, 2016

Fantastic story. I love these Grayson Brothers and Alex is the most intriguing of all! He's known and loved Ella his whole life. He has always keep her firmly in the friend zone for her own good. He thinks his past proves he's no good for anyone, especially someone as special as Ella. Ella completel ...more

Fast ein wenig kurz für die Geschehnisse, die Ella und Alex verarbeiten müssen. Ich hab mich schon beim lesen des ersten Bands gefragt wie Alex mit dem umgeht, was er durchgemacht hat. ...more

Why is it that every time we try to let go of the feelings we know would never be returned it is also the time where the other person notices our existence? Just when you think it's time to stop they give a hint that yo ...more

Steamy and Heartfelt!

Hold Me Until Forever is a combustible mix of one damaged alpha male with a penchant for BDSM and a long-time female friend he has forbidden himself to lust after but who desires him like no other! I just LOVED this read from the off and although all of the books in Christina P ...more

So what happens when you have a guy that had lived next door to you that you had a crush on and you wanted him to be the guy that gave you’re your “sweet sixteen” birthday kiss to but after that kiss that everything ends right there? That’s what happened to Ella. She had her eyes on Alex forever whi ...more

There is something about this author that just keeps on pulling me in.
While I have enjoyed the Grayson Brothers so far but I’ve been itching to read Alex’s story.
Because dang stick a sex club in the plot and I am ignoring the world until I have finished!
As expected this is a full on assault and I ...more

By Becky January 04, 2016

I haven't read the others in the series--yet--but Hold Me Until Forever worked just fine as a standalone. You see enough of the younger two brothers, Jackson and Cooper, to whet your interest in their stories but don't feel at all lost if you haven't had a chance to read them.

Hold Me Until Forever i ...more

By Shirley January 04, 2016

After reading Hold Me Until Morning , the previous book in the series, I was expectantly anticipating Alex's story. With his broodiness and quiet intensity, I thought it would be awesome to see him unraveling over a woman. Thankfully, Christina Phillips delivered in that front much as I expected. ...more

By Amber January 21, 2016

I am a big fan of Christina Phillips and a HUGE fan of anything that comes from Entangled's Brazen line so I was thrilled to see this one pop up on Netgalley. I had read the two previous brothers stories and knew that Alex was going to be the darker, harder to get to know brother and Christina Phill ...more

4.5 stars

Hold Me Until Forever is a touching friends to lovers romance, and it is a very enjoyable read. Filled with both passion and emotion, I found this book incredibly difficult to put down. This is the third book in the Grayson Brothers series, but it works well as a standalone - I haven't read ...more

By Cris January 04, 2016

Ella and Alex have been friends since they were children, and although they’ve always had a thing for each other neither was ever really aware of the other’s desire for more. I’m a big fan of ‘friends to lovers’ romances but this one was a little different in that Ella is incredibly close with Alex’ ...more

By LJT June 25, 2016

Although I am not a huge fan of romances with a sex club as a major feature, I am a fan of the Grayson Brothers series. So reading about Alex Grayson was a no-brainer. Hold Me Until Forever by Christina Phillips is a real scorcher, and the plot is replete with sacrifice, guilt and love. This book co ...more

I haven't read book 1 & 2 in the series, but that didn't detract anything from Hold me until forever.

So it seems that the two younger Grayson brothers found their forever women and the oldest, Alex Grayson is left.

Alex' younger brothers best friend Ella is were his attractions resides. Alex tries t ...more
