characters É E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Victoria Purman Hold On To Me characters Î E-book, or Kindle E-pub Victoria Purman ☆ 9 characters Can she learn to trust him and love againStella wasn't looking for love – and especially not from a younger manWhen Stella Ryan's successful life in Sydney crumbled she returned flat broke – and broken hearted – to the beachside town she'd once called home Five years on she's opened a boutiue and rebuilt her li Hold On To Me is another novel in Victoria Purman s Boys of Summer series I ve read the previous novels and really enjoyed them Stella was introduced briefly before and Luca is Anna Morelli s brother so I was pleased to get the opportunity to head back to this world and catch up with what is happeningThis one is a little slow to get moving the cafe next to Stella s shop catches fire and although her shop doesn t burn it does take uite a bit of water damage from the fire brigade putting out the fire She hires Anna Morelli s brother Luca to repair the shop as well as make some improvements Luca has ideas and together the two of them begin to plan a much better space whilst a simmering attraction starts between themLuca is 29 to Stella s 35 and this is something that does preoccupy her I m almost the same age as Stella and I have to admit I didn t find it to be such a big deal Perhaps because my husband is older than me I don t tend to view age gaps the same as many others might But 6 years when both characters are around 30ish didn t seem much at all If Stella had been 45 and Luca 25 it might ve been something I felt easy for her to panic over After all when you stretch that far people can be in very different life placesespecially if the older character is female By the time the guy gets to 30 and might think about wanting children the woman is most likely going to find that difficult When the situation is reversed men can keep fathering children well into their senior years I think in some ways it was trying to portray that being younger Luca was often the one settled ready for what was happening but this was occasionally spoiled by him storming off in a huff getting angry over being jealous or becoming moody in a way that was just vaguely explained as being because he s Italian Also Anna refers to her brother as bella several times throughout this book which made me giggle I m assuming it s supposed to be belloWhat I did really love about this book is the strong friendship between all of the women well couples that have each been previously featured in a book They catch up freuently and share their lives and have girls nights and guys nights I m assuming and in some cases match make the not yet paired up members I also really liked the little side plot of Stella s friend Summer and her finding of romance Actually I think I would ve liked to have read about that The women are all so closely knit and their friendship is written in such a natural and genuine way It makes this seem like a really lovely place to live the sort of place you d love to move to even if just to be included in that sort of friendship groupStella had a pretty rough childhood and it s definitely affected her into her adulthood as well as the failed relationship that sent her fleeing back to Middle Point She s had to overcome uite a few knocks and she s very determined and strong but at the same time she does tend to have a streak of the vulnerable in her and she finds it very hard to trust I felt as though Stella had uite a bit of justification to be as emotionally stunted as she was even though it did make her at times a little frustrating She was stubborn clinging onto this stuff from her childhood and allowing it to continue affecting her every day life but thankfully she did manage to take some steps towards letting it all go as well as what happened with the relationship in her past once she got over the idea that she might somehow be publicly humiliated in some way and that it would change people s perceptions of herDespite a few niggles with this one mostly personal not seeing what the big deal was with the age and Stella needing to constantly tell herself to leave the young man alone etc I did enjoy this story and I loved being back in this part of the world catching up with the other couples and seeing what was going on in their lives Victoria Purman has created a really nice community here and populated it with lovely people the sort that you just enjoy being connected to
