The Holdout by Laurel Osterkamp

Robin wanted to win The Holdout, a cutthroat reality TV show, so she gave it her all, challenge after challenge. Then she fell for Grant, with his irresistible eyes and heartbreaking life story.

But Grant was only using Robin as they competed for a million dollars. Once home, Robin wants to hide from the humiliation as episodes of The Holdout are aired, and she worries her family was right all along; she's not a survivor.

Yet she could surprise everyone, and have the last laugh.

Besides, Robin now has jury duty. And as she forges ahead, confronting her demons about bravery, justice, and romance, Robin will come to decide which is more important: the courage to stand alone, or the strength to love again.

  1. This sounds interesting! Reality TV contestants intrigue me...

  2. I really want to read this one soon :) sounds awesome! I'm adding it to my TBR pile :)

  3. OMG...Those kind of reality TV shows make me crazy! I think they make great fodder for fiction, though.

  4. Is this a New Adult (NA) book? On the cover, she looks very young. As a "mature" reader, I like older heroines

  5. Sounds like a great read!!
