    One thought on “Holding Out”

    1. 2.5 StarsHolding Out by Lila Rose is book one in her Hawks Motorcycle Club series. It is a tale of a young, single mother trying to move forward with her life and an alpha-biker determined to claim her.Zara Edgingway has spent the last six years rebuilding her life after leaving her abusive ex-husband and essentially pulling off a disappearing act. Her main priority is her six year old daughter, Maya, and keeping her safe. For the past two years, Zara has lived across the road from the Hawks Mot [...]

    2. 2----Stars!!!I am a definite sucker for MC booksbut unfortunately this one just didn't work for me. It felt like a Saturday Night Live version of a MC book like a parody of sorts. IDK! I found it silly more than anything. I'm all for humor in my books and love some good banter but this was just OTT and eye roll inducing. It followed the typical MC storyline. Troubled heroine (Zara) running from her abusive past with her 6 year old daughter in tow. This one also included a mouthy best friend and [...]

    3. 1/5 stars HOLY HELL ON A CRACKER I CAN'T WITH THIS BOOK. WHAT DID I JUST READ? this will spoil the *cough* story so don't read if you want to pick this one up. I must be a sadist. Not only did I pick this book up, I actually finished this horrifying mess. This has to be one of the worst written books I have read in a long time, the style was juvenile and the plot was ridiculous. And not the fun kind of ridiculous, it was just plain unbelievable. I was crying real tears of pain with this one.Zara [...]

    4. An Aussie Biker Tale…3.5 StarsOnce upon a time there was a young woman named Zara who got very cranky at a biker named Talon because he was playing his music too loud. Talon thought it was amusing to see this little kitten yelling at him, President of the Hawks Motorcycle Club, dressed in her nightie and cammo boots. Zara, didn’t find it so amusing, but she also couldn’t help but notice that this guy she was cranky at, was one smoking hot man. A long flirtation started after that night, bu [...]

    5. Reviewer: JustineRating: 5 out of 5 FairiesIf Kristen Ashley and Madeline Sheehan had an illegitimate love-child, she’d go by the name of Lila Rose.This book contains so much that I love: alpha male, motorcycle-riding hotness mixed with liberal amounts of gritty real life action and foul-mouthed humor. SERIOUSLY! All of this on one hefty amazing book.If you're the type of stick in the mud to find offence with certain words, for certain body parts, this is NOT the books for you. Lila was born w [...]

    6. I was really excited to read this after I saw the blurb, I thought, wow another MC book, since I'm a MC sucker. The H/h, I don't felt the connection to them, and even between the two of them. The heroine trying to be cute annoyed me big time.The dialogue, I don't know if just read too much biker books, or expected too much. I love to read humor, sweet banter, but this was bit off for me. I don't feel it. The story, well it's like a compilation of most MC books I'd read(IMO). Alpha male, sassy he [...]

    7. 30% and slapping this as a DNF.unbelievable, unrealistic and ridiculous!I don't mind some humor in MC but this one was awkward and forced I felt like throwing up.But what really bothers me is the heroine she's a fuckin' airhead! I'm guessing the author is "trying" to make her look cute? witty? down to earth? nice? likeable? but can I just say that she is dumb as fuck? Seriously. Reading her thoughts makes me feel stupid! Her character felt wrong in so many levels This was a painful read. I guess [...]

    8. I didn't hold out! DNF at 40%The whole time, I kept coming across: A. caricature-like depictions of the alpha[rip-off of KA-style]you know-the giving the heroine a nickname (in this case: Kitten), and the overbearing behavior that "claims" her as his woman abruptly and out of the blue with no lead in; OR B. the hokey/ditzy damsel in distress with no clue, told in the 1st person point of view, that's supposed to be KA Rock Chick heroine cute but it is really NOT!; OR C. the bad boy motorcycle gan [...]

    9. Ouch, painful to read. Was just so poorly written. 6 years ago Zara was beaten and raped by her husband. Runs away with her friend Deanna, has a daughter, and moves across the street from the Hawks MC compound. Catches the eye of the club pres Talon when she storms over the first night in her nightgown and combat boots and asks him to turn down the music. Fast forward a few years and the day Talon decides to claim her as his old lady, her brother shows up and tells her that their parents were ki [...]

    10. There is a lot too Zara Edgingway that President of the Hawkes Motorcycle Club, Talon Marcus doesn't know but he is about to find out. Talon has waited two years to get close to his neighbor and her precocious daughter. He knows she is meant to be his old lady, but everytime he gets close Zara gets flustered. Finally seeing his in, Talon makes his move. If he thought he would have an easy acceptance for what he wanted, he was sadly mistaken.Quite humorous take on a biker story. Zara mumbles, spe [...]

    11. Oh WOW! Holding Out by Lila Rose was AMAZING! It was the breath of fresh air that I didn't know I needed! Zara is a single mother, and lives across the road from the Hawks Motorcycle Club's compound. She has a six year old daughter, Maya, and her best friend Deanna is a constant presence in her life. Zara is a fun character, with her wit and humor. I easily connected with her, and her inner monologue was fantastic! Talon is the leader of the Hawks Motorcycle Club. He's hot as hell and a definite [...]

    12. Zara has been in hiding from her ex husband for six years. When she moved into her house 2 years ago the last thing she expected was head biker and hottie Talon to be her neighbor. She knows she doesn't stand a chance to have him when his usual type is blond and big boobed. But when he comes in and shows her how he really feels in all his Alpha male goodness she knows things will never be the same. But before they can get a chance at happiness Zara's past come back to bite her in the ass, and on [...]

    13. Sexy, witty, sassy and smart. Lila Rose blew me away with her debut novel 'Holding Out' She will definitely be one Aussie Author to watch! 5 stars!

    14. I received an advance copy of this book as a beta reader.What a fun and quick read! Holding Out is full of suspense and Lila Rose has a great sense of humor.The characters are each unique in their own way. The main character, Zara, is probably the most “normal” of the bunch. Her best friend has a mouth that would make a sailor cringe. The bikers are all rough on the outside and pussycats on the inside.Even though there is some serious stuff going on in the story, Lila Rose keeps it light wit [...]

    15. This was one of the best stories I have read in a long time, and I don't think I've ever read a book this length so quick before. Apart from Kitten and Talon, Julian was my favourite character. This book made me laugh out loud lots of time, as well as being full of suspense.

    16. I liked this book a lot till 70% I need loyal heroes throughout. I think this author has a really great ability at writing an engaging and funny story but if I can't respect the characters then I'll never believe in their HEA (view spoiler)[Can't take cheating. Kissing someone else is cheating No matter the circumstances if its on purpose and he didn't try to stop it.s cheating. So disgusted right now. The thing is you can't rewrite it to say he tried to stopeven the heroine knew he was kissing [...]

    17. Holy Hell, Kristen Ashley has a twin sister and her name is Lila Rose and she is a AussieThat is how similar and awesome this book was. (And that is the highest compliment I can pay as KA is the bomb)I read it all in one sitting, could not put it down. To say I freaking loved it would be the understatement of the century.This book rocked!!!Talon and Zara's story had it all. The humor was so LOL all the time. The sex scenes were hands down hot as hell, there was more than enough testosterone will [...]

    18. This was an AWESOME BOOK!I loved it from the fist page right till the end.It was funni/drama/emotional/total badass biker! What's not to love.The other characters in the book are just amazing! Deanna and Julian are hilarious! I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.And totally, totally recommend that anyone read this book if you in the mood to have a good laugh!

    22. 2.5 WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ StarsThis book, I'm pretty positive, takes place in a span of 3 days. It opens up with, BAM STRAIGHT IN YOUR FACE EVERYTHING, has loads of drama the whole way through that is fixed majorly fast, and insta love. Well, the insta love. it is but it isn't as this couple danced around each other for 2 stupid years. Sowhile it seems fast, it also didn't at the same time. Although, I wanted it to go slower with them.This story was chalked full of KA-isms as well.This b [...]

    23. I reviewed the ARC of Holding Out by Lila Rose for an honest review. This book is not out for sale yet but I will definitely leave the information when they do! This is honestly the first time I have read a romance novel about Bikers, I’m not a big biker girl but from all the teasers that Lila Rose has but up on her author page it sounded really interesting. It’s about this 26 year old woman who ran away from her abusive husband and 6 years late he comes to look for her, at the same time her [...]

    25. I was given this book to read by Lila Rose, its the first book of hers that I have read, but I can say that it won't be the last. Zara and her daughter have moved a few times, but now that they have settled in a new place, meeting people, having friends, all of that plus a sexy motorcycle club with hot members that are just across the street what more could a girl want. Talon has been waiting and watching Zara since she moved in, he knows that she is the one that he wants but he isn't in the pos [...]

    26. *I was given an ARC for an honest review*Just when I needed a biker fix too, this gem was uploaded. There's a new Alpha in town and his name is Talon ♥ While there were a couple steamy scenes, the book wasn't panty melting HAWT; however I loved the banter of the characters with their volleyed insults; it reminded me so much of my own personality and relationship. Since it's set in Australia where the author is from, I can't help myself but sound like cheesey Crocodile Dundee in my head. There [...]

    27. ⭐️⭐️⚪️ I really had high expectations for this book but unfortunately not even half way through this book, I know this book is not for me.Way too short.Not much character development.The story got right down to business on the first chapter which made me confused. God, I just wish it was more. I wish it was everything I expected.Some of my favorite stories involves bikers and children and I really wanted this to work out. I rarely ever choose a book and it's bad so I'm very disappoin [...]

    28. Let me start by saying you can see the number of stars and I can't even say for sure that I wouldn't rate this a 1 1/2 stares instead of 2, so know going into this review that it's not hearts, rainbows, horses, and blue moons.I really struggled to finish this book, the story was good but the characters and I mean everyone outside of the MC well let me take that back Talon's son and Zara's daughter didn't bother me but everyone else got on my last nerve. They were all very immature (I couldn't be [...]

    29. Insta-love. Insta-family. Wacky internal dialogue from our h.Wacky h is so "cute" other members of the club want a shot.Wacky BFF.Alpha H that lays his claim in 2.2 secs for NO reason.Wacky h charms the bad guys by being "cute".Another MC book of caricatures instead of characters. But I'm conflicted about this book there were a lot of likable elements. I laughed out loud quite a few times. The plot a bit predictable but I wasn't bored. If the author let up on the gas instead of shoving the pedal [...]
