She has a body that needs guarding. He has the muscle to do it … but he’s moved on and refuses to look back.
A Woman Fighting to Stay on Top
After a decade as a supermodel, a younger version of me is scooping up my contracts. To regain my status in the industry, my agency devises a strategy—which so happens to require a bodyguard. And I know the perfect guy for the job: Wills Sumner, the man who saw beneath my veneer. Who currently is evading my texts like a Parisian taxi driver in the rain.
A Man Surrendering Hope
I need to start over. Watching my partners die on the job cemented my belief that I’m toxic. So, with the money from that fateful gig, I buy my sister’s gym. At least I can honor her in death—considering I failed to step up when she was alive. Now, if only the French beauty Emilie Dubois would lose my number.
Emilie is fixated on having me at her side. I’m resigned to doing one final turn and escaping with my heart intact.
But neither of us expected to be stripped bare … In the end, she may be the only one who can Take Hold of Me.
***WARNING: Due to strong language and sexual situations, this book is intended for mature audiences. It is the first standalone novel in A Hold Series Spin-off.
About Arell Rivers
For as long as Arell Rivers remembers, she has been lost in a book. During her senior year in college, she picked up a Danielle Steel novel … and instantly was hooked on romance.
She started writing her first novel, No One to Hold, because the characters were screaming at her to do so. The story started coming out in Arell’s dreams and attacking her in the shower, so she took to the computer to shut them up. But they kept talking.
Born and raised in New Jersey, Arell has what some may call a “checkered past.” Prior to discovering her passion for writing romance, she practiced law, was a wedding and event planner and even dabbled in marketing. Arell lives with a very supportive husband who doesn’t care that the bed isn’t made or dinner isn’t on the table. When not in her writing cave, Arell is found making dinner in the crock pot, working out with Shaun T or hitting the beach.
She hopes you enjoy her stories about strong men, driven women and the passions that ignite!
