All You Hold On To (Anderson Creek # 1) by K.T. Egan


Aspiring author Roxanne Wortham lives a comfortable life in Las Vegas. She spends her days at her nine-to-five job and comes home to her boyfriend, Ethan, and an unfinished novel that she can’t seem to crack. Her life is simple— that is, until she gets a phone call saying that her childhood best friend and ex-boyfriend, Maverick Sterling, has been in a near-fatal car crash.

As Roxanne discovers that she still has power of attorney over his affairs, she places her life on hold and rushes to Maverick’s side in Scranton, Pennsylvania. While helping him to recover, memories of childhood and old relationships resurface, making it difficult for Roxanne to balance her new life with her old one. Roxanne is left to sort through complicated feelings from her past alongside the realization that Maverick may still have feelings for her— and even worse, she may still have feelings for him, too.

This story follows a group of childhood friends into adulthood, Focusing on Roxanne and Maverick and their love story. Roxanne and Maverick were totally in love with each other until they broke up and Roxanne moved to vegas and got a new boyfriend. 

The story was a cute easy read without too many twists and turns, this allowed me to really get into their world and explore the friendships between the group. I would have loved to learn a little more about the characters and although I was invested in the relationship between Roxanne and Maverick I don't feel like I really got to know them that well. 
The supporting characters were not really developed into individual people that could exist without the main characters so maybe the next books will focus on somebody else. 

I liked the style of writing in this book and did find it pretty easy to read. I really like the cosy vibes of the cover too. I dont think I will be rushing to pick up the next book in the series but it definitely has potential. 

I would like to thank NetGalley for providing this book in exchange of an honest review. 

Thanks For Reading
