“I really loved the fact that this novel emulated its book cover. The cover screams thriller, so does the title. This one had a lot to live up to in my opinion and boy did it! Be prepared to go on a thrill ride. There are so many twists and turns and Peter Darley does an amazing job of keeping his reader on the edge of their seat. The plot flowed smoothly and quickly, I was never bored and furiously flipping pages. The characters are well developed and I enjoyed their interactions and relationships with each other. Romantic Suspense is a balancing act and I think Peter Darley nailed it! ”

“Three pages into Hold On! by Peter Darley you forget you’re reading a novel and feel as if you are watching a TV show. Darley has created something rare in fiction: a romantic-thriller that is both heart racing and heart breaking. His lead character Brandon Drake is an enigmatic knot that only Belinda Reese and we, the lucky reader, can untangle. The title Hold On is uttered when the main characters meet for the first time but it’s good advice for readers as well. Because once this fast-paced thrill ride starts – think the proverbial roller coaster sans safety bar and forget about the brakes – it doesn't slow down. Darley writes with great passion and heart and I can’t wait for the sequel. (Jim Brown – renowned broadcast journalist, and bestselling author of 24/7 and Black Valley)”

Jim Brown on Hold On!

“I love a good action series and you can't beat this one from author Peter Darley. His first book introduced characters Brandon and Belinda, who became a couple and ended up running for their lives after becoming embroiled in an espionage scheme. In this second book, 'Go! Hold On!', Brandon had been captured and has now escaped from prison. He is emotionally scarred and battles these issues as he meets up again with Belinda, his long-lost brother and a sister he never knew he had. There is plenty of action and intense dialogue in this one, with a kidnapping and much more. Loved the read and can't wait to get my hands on the next Season.”

“You will definitely want to have plenty of allotted reading time before starting this one. It was hard to put down. I was so engrossed in the story that I put off many of my important things to do. Peter Darley does a great job of creating a Romantic Suspense that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I was anticipating each thing, yet surprised the whole way through. I think the Romance was believable and unfolded smoothly which is always important. I don't like when Romances seem forced, this one seemed natural. Great not only Romantic Suspense but Suspense in general. ”

“Hold On! - Tomorrow has held my interest right from the very beginning. I haven't been able to put it down! Continuing with Brandon's offspring, this breathtaking, heartfelt story develops seamlessly with fast-paced action, unexpected twists and an awesome wrap-up of the Hold On! universe. The graphic feel of the action makes me wish I could enjoy the movie of these cinematic novels as much as I've enjoyed the books. Heinous villains, tough, honest, honourable bone-and-flesh heroes making the most of dark anti-hero backgrounds, adult, deep characters, military suspense, epic action spiced with humor and angst in just the precise doses, together with sci-fi/paranormal brush strokes make the entire Hold On! experience an incredible read, most recommended to the lovers of action-packed, imaginative fiction with a cinematic quality and a roller-coaster thrill. Peter Darley is, as of now, one of my favourite writers ever, together with John Connolly, among others. I can't wait for the next novel by this wondrous writer”

“One of the most perfectly written series I've ever read. Keeps a pace that won't let you put it down for even a minute. Never heard of Peter Farley before this, he's now on my top ten list of favorite writers. Hopefully he considers creating more adventures for the Interceptor.”

“Great ending book of a great series. Action packed and thrilling with humor and family love mixed in. Great read.”

“This was a great book! Awesome and believable story, realistic characters. lots of action, surprises, heroism, a page turner, couldn't put it down and read it in 2 days.”

“I'm simply tongue- tied. Seasons 1 - 3 deserve my sleepless nights. The best I Have ever read since 2014. Can movie producers consider this series as one of the best top? ”
