I was excited to start Hold Me Until Morning by Christina Phillips as I’ve never read a book by her before but the blurb for this book seemed like a story I couldn’t pass up. This is the second book in the Grayson Brothers Series however it can be read as a stand alone as I haven’t read the first book in the series.
In Hold Me Until Morning, Cooper Grayson is asked by his best friend to please watch over his little sister Paris for a week. Paris is a Hollywood scarlet who needs a break from the paparazzi and just the life she has been living. Paris figures that hiding out in a cabin in the mountains would be the best place to get away from life for a little while. It has been years since Cooper and Paris has seen one another and from the moment they lay eyes on each other there is instant sexual tension. Despite not being able to stop thinking about Paris or longing for her, Copper can’t forget the fact that this is his best friends little sister and he was hired to do a job. Each of them doesn’t know how they are going to last the week when being with one another is all they are thinking about. When one kiss between the two happens it doesn’t take long for the lust and desire for one another to combust. While they share an incredible week with one another growing closer and closer each one of them can’t stop thinking about what will happen when their week is up. Will they be able to overcome their lifestyle differences and stay together or will they have to split ways and return to the lives they are each accustomed to?
I enjoyed reading Hold Me Until Morning, although for me it was a bit predictable, however that did not take away from the overall story. I immediately took a liking to Cooper Grayson-he is hot, loyal and goes after what he wants. Believe me I wouldn’t mind hiding out in the mountains for a week with Cooper. Along with being a bit predictable I also felt the story as a bit rushed. I wanted to learn more about their backstory to get a better understanding of their attraction and connection to one another. If you are looking for a good quick love story-I recommend Hold Me Until Morning.

Synopsis: Every good girl loves a very bad boy…
Scarlett Ashford needs a date for her father’s wedding. Only she doesn’t just need a guy in a suit—she needs a bodyguard. The only problem is that Jackson Grayson is big and gorgeous and way too sexy. So much so that Scarlett’s tempted to let this hot bad boy ruin her oh-so-good reputation…
Jackson doesn’t do relationships and he certainly doesn’t sleep with clients. Yet he can’t fight their inconvenient attraction, or how badly he wants Scarlett’s warm and wicked curves against his body. He wants her. Now. Even if it’s just for one night, and even if walking away the next morning isn’t as easy as he thought.
Besides, one hot and incredibly intense night between a bad boy and a pampered princess could never turn into something real…could it?
