Title: The Hang Up
Author: Tawna Fenske
Publisher: Entangled Lovestruck, Entangled Publishing
Date of Publication: June 13th, 2016
This is a delightful romance where both main characters have serious hang ups as a result of their experiences. Hers is to fear losing someone she loves whilst they’re out being adventurous. His is ensuring he cares and protects his family after losing his parents as a teenager, raising his sister and now supporting her and her son who is in remission after treatment for leukaemia.She is Miriam Ashley, a PR specialist, working with her business partner running their own company helping others improve their image and marketing. He is Jason Sanders, who used to run his own adventurous activities business but is now the new CEO of one of her biggest companies! There are giggle out loud moments – like when they first meet and she mistakes him for someone who is homeless. Nearly every encounter involving his nephew, Henry, is hilarious – I just had to read them out loud to share them with my husband, just so he knew what I was laughing at.
This is a story of learning to live life to the full, taking acceptable risks, hoping for the future and trusting that love will always help show the way forward. It is about fighting for those who aren’t in a position to fight for themselves, recognising everyone’s contribution to a company’s success and being willing to compromise to enable everyone to be a winner. It is also about being prepared to stand up and be counted, taking responsibility for your own actions but acknowledging that other adults need to be responsible for themselves and don’t always need wrapping up to keep them safe.
This is a great, fun read with plenty of dramatic moments, humour and, of course, romance. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who likes to escape into a family drama packed with hope and love.
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read this in exchange for my honest review.
PR specialist Miriam Ashley makes her living cleaning up bad boys. Mountain climber-turned-CEO Jason Sanders should be an easy fix. And with a nephew to care for, he’s motivated. The problem? Every time she tries to help Jason get his head in the boardroom, they end up in the bedroom.
What the hell is she thinking? He’s the definition of off-limits. Not just because he’s a client—he spends his free time risking his life mountain climbing. The same thing that got her father killed. She’s not going to open her heart to a guy who could disappear at the drop of a…well, she’d rather not finish that thought.
She needs to leave complicated alone, but every time she sees Jason, something tells her it’s her who might fall…
