Summary

Eighteen months 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.

Fabulous book

Wow what an amazing and emotionally beautiful story. This book had all the feels. Joy, sadness, despair and love. I love all the different characters and the tie in to our favourite first couple too. I wasn’t sure what to expect but this story was compelling to read. The twists and turns I didn’t see coming but I should know from reading all MsForce’s books to expect the unexpected from her. Truly wonderful. I can’t believe it was left like that tho. I guess we should expect the unexpected tho lol. Great narration too.

Gagging

I honestly do not know what was worse the story or the narration. Seriously this was so bad I may never read or listen to another book of this author and have read quite a few. I ended this book thinking widows and widowers are the worst crybaby self absorbed gag-tastic excuse of humans on earth. Going to social media and unfollowing the author now. I want those hours back from my life.

Emotional and heart warming

After the emotional read of the first book in the series I was looking forward to reading Someone To Hold and it did not disappoint in any way. From the moment I started this book I knew I was in for a long night.

This was an emotional roller coaster of a read and one I couldn’t put down once I started. This is Iris, founder of the Wild Widows Club and Gage’s story and their journey was a rocky one, full of ups and downs.

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. As with the previous book, this story covers loss, grief and heartache and Marie Force handled it with integrity, not shying away from the harsh realities of life. Someone To Hold is a story of finding love, of hope and taking chances; it was realistic, emotional and extremely well written.

The narration by Addison Barnes and Justin Price who are both new to me did justice to this story and brought the characters to life for me.

Excellent story but

The woman who read Iris I enjoyed. She was wonderful in all the voices. The man who narrated Gage, not so much. Breathy, too soft and stilted.
The story was riveting! Marie never disappoints.

Second Chance Romance—Messiness of Life Included

Really enjoying this new Marie Force series where she is keeping it REAL by weaving in the very very messy parts of everyday life which are on center stage as the characters navigate their second-chance romances.

Second Chance for Love

The Wild Widows club is very supportive of all of the members and their progress through grief that has brought them all together. Iris is widowed with three small children and Gage's wife and two daughters were killed in a drunk driving accident. They are on a retreat with everyone when Iris decides to act on her attraction to Gage. He doesn't push her away even though he tells her that he doesn't want another relationship. I thought Marie Force brought compassion and understanding to this story. I'm certainly looking forward to the next book! I haven't heard Addison Barnes or Justin Price narrate before but I thought they brought the characters to life for me.

Widows

Ok I really liked the story. I did not like the voices used in the audio recordings. They didn’t sound natural speaking.
