Blog Tour: Letting Go by Molly McAdams

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author returns with a sizzling novel of love, loss, guilt, and forgiveness.
Grey and Ben fell in love at thirteen and believed they’d be together forever. But three days before their wedding, the twenty-year-old groom-to-be suddenly died from an unknown heart condition, destroying his would-be-bride’s world. If it hadn’t been for their best friend, Jagger, Grey never would have made it through those last two years to graduation. He’s the only one who understands her pain, the only one who knows what it’s like to force yourself to keep moving when your dreams are shattered. Jagger swears he’ll always be there for her, but no one has ever been able to hold on to him. He’s not the kind of guy to settle down.
It’s true that no one has ever been able to keep Jagger—because he’s only ever belonged to Grey. While everyone else worries over Grey’s fragility, he’s the only one who sees her strength. Yet as much as he wants Grey, he knows her heart will always be with Ben. Still they can’t deny the heat that is growing between them—a passion that soon becomes too hot to handle. But admitting their feelings for each other means they’ve got to face the past. Is being together what Ben would have wanted . . . or a betrayal of his memory that will eventually destroy them both?

4 star review by Allison East

My relationship with Molly's is a love/hate one. I love her books- but I hate her books. They are so darn emotional, and I am always scared bad things are going to happen when I
read them, but I am always pleasantly surprised by how much I end up really loving them. In the description of the book, we are already warned that one of the characters passes away- thank you for that. Its so much so at the beginning, I didn't even get to form a bond with the character, so it turns out to be sucky for the heroine, but ok for me!

Grey, is obviously emotionally devastated that her boyfriend/fiance of seven years suddenly dies, a few days before their wedding. As the first chapter begins, I was hooked, I knew I had to find out- how Grey was going to end up. How much this was going to kill her, and just who was this Jagger she was talking about?

Jagger has been Grey's friend for a very long time. He has always loved Grey, even when she picked Ben. I love him- hard. He is one of my favorite Molly book boyfriends, beside Chase that is. He is uber protective of Grey, and always taking care of her, standing up for her- even if its to her brother or his sister.

The story focuses on the struggle Jagger and Grey feel- when it becomes evident that Jagger loves Grey as more than a friend. I felt like Grey should have been with Jagger from
the opening page, I was unsure why Ben, the fiancĂ©, basically took Grey from Jagger in the first place. He knew that Jagger was in love with her. It was even mentioned that he knew. And Charlie, Jagger's sister, was madly in love with Ben. So I felt like Jagger and Grey were meant to be.

Poor Grey had to deal with such a blow at such a young age. I really didn't like the people in her life telling her to basically get over it, and then accusing her of not honoring Ben's name by dating Jagger- it was kind of messed up. And then ALL THE FEELS started to happen. When poor Grey was put through the wringer once again. Leave it to Molly to break your heart over and over again.

I love this book about two perfect souls and finding their way to one another- even if the path is messy, and dirty- they always found their way. This book was sort of like a car ride with someone just taking lessons. You start off slow, and then you build up until you feel really comfortable- but there are tons of obstacles in the way. Bumps, hurdles, stop signs, red lights, accidents will all be in the way- but because you are new, you find a way to
get around these things- and in the end, you learn, you grow and you find your way home. Molly does it again, and I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It's a must read.

Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach, which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.
