Author: Gabrielle Ashton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2019
Harper Brown is a snarky pain in Sebastian Hastings’
His brother’s assistant not only seems to hate his guts, but
she’s also not afraid to talk back to him and tempting enough to distract him
from the billions he should be earning.
Then pictures of their one hot kiss leak to the gossip mags,
and Sebastian has a brilliant idea.
What better way to get the gold diggers off his back than to
take himself off the market?
It’s the perfect solution.
Except as things with Harper heat up, it becomes harder for
Sebastian to remind himself that she’s only playing his fiancé for the money.
He’s a man who always gets what he wants. But is Harper more
than he bargained for?
FOR HARPER is a steamy, fake relationship, enemies to lovers romance. It is the
second book in the Holding Out series and can be read as a standalone.

Ari’s  🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

Gabrielle Ashton has done it again! Not only has she delivered another gorgeous cover (hi, I’m Ari and I’m a cover whore), but she’s also delivered another unputdownably fantastic story I couldn’t help but devour.

I loved, loved, LOVED Holding Out for Harper! This was Sebastian and Harper’s story who we previously met Holding Out for Paris. Sebastian Hastings is all the delicious hero things! He’s grumpy and yummy and not looking for love and did I mention yummy? Harper is his brother’s sexy af and infuriatingly sassy assistant. Unlike most women Harper isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with the sexy billionaire and tell him how it is. So after a picture of them accidentally locking lips is leaked to the tabloids Sebastian comes up with an idea to pay Harper to be his pretend fiancé. They hate each other right? So what could possibly go wrong? So much and when does go wrong it’s oh so right!

Gah, Gabrielle Ashton seriously turned it up a notch with HOFH! This story had two of my favorite tropes combined: fake relationship and enemies to lovers. I was in HEAVEN! Sebastian and Harper’s back and forth banter was the best! It was good to see Sebastian be put in his place and not know what to make of of strong and sexy Harper. She was a total sweetheart in my book! Hardworking, driven, and took no BS from Sebastian. I just loved the chemistry and delicious sexual tension between the two, but mostly I loved watching them slowly give into one another and their obvious feelings.

If you’re a fan of sexy, steamy, enemies-to-lovers/fake-relationship romances with great banter and writing to get lost in then you’ll be in heaven with Holding Out for Harper. READ THIS, but I’m totally claiming Sebastian as mine! 5 stars.
