About this ebook

Grief brought them together. Will it also tear them apart?


Two and a half years after suddenly losing the love of my life, I’m coming out of the fog of early grief and taking a hard look at the rest of my life. With three young children to care for on my own while also managing their grief, I haven’t had a lot of time to ponder what’s next for me. When I think about what I really want, I keep coming back to one thing. Or I should say one person, someone who understands what I’ve been through because he’s been there, too, only his losses were far worse than mine. I find myself thinking about him all the time, but is he ready for the things I want? I have no idea, but I’m determined to find out.

Read Iris’s story in book 2 of Marie’s new Wild Widows Series.

My emotions were high reading Iris and Gage's book. These two clearly know what loss is like, but goodness, they deserved another shot at finding--and keeping!--love. I adored that these two were such good friends prior to them hooking up and then falling in love. These two were tested time and again, and yes, sometimes they faltered, but at the end of the day, they righted themselves and continued writing their second chapter--together. Someone to Hold was one satisfying and beautiful romance.

I was so excited for this book because after reading the emotional first book in the series I needed to know where Ms Force was going to take us with her Wild Widows Series, well this book was everything I expected and so much more. I was blown away Gage and Iris’s emotional yet entertaining journey and I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers. I was drawn in and captivated from the first few pages and there was no putting down until I had read the final words.

My emotions were all over the place whilst reading; there were times that I laughed and times that I was moved to tears. My heart went out to both Iris and Gage for everything they have been through, it just about broke my heart. I admired the strength and resilience of Iris and Gage, both have hearts of gold and are there for one another until Gage falters. The friendships, love and support of the other members of the Wild Widows Club added an additional layer to the story.
