A romantic European vacation is the perfect excuse to let go in this delightfully romantic, refreshingly modern, and highly anticipated sequel to No Love Allowed.

Everyone knows that Nathan is in love with his best friend, Preston…Everyone except Preston. Nathan has always accepted that Preston was too focused on his swimming to worry about love. But Preston is heading off to train for the Olympics soon, so if Nathan wants his chance at love, he has to speak up now. But saying “I love you” is surprisingly difficult, even for someone as confident as Nathan. Could a whirlwind vacation in Europe bring them together? Or if it doesn’t work out, will Nathan lose the best friend he’s ever had?

Fall in love with Nathan and Preston all over again in No Holding Back, the swoonworthy new young adult contemporary romance in the Dodge Cove Trilogy by Kate Evangelista.

Praise for the Dodge Cove Trilogy:

No Holding Back:

"No Holding Back is an intriguing novel featuring diverse characters and romance built not only on attraction but also lifelong friendship and support." —VOYA

No Love Allowed:

"Evangelista takes a familiar story of young love and makes it fresh." —VOYA

"Given the growing awareness towards understanding the stigmas, issues and concerns surrounding mental illness, I find it refreshing that this book doesn’t preach about what to do or how to be – it just tells a story of two people who fall in love and who just also happen to struggle with issues that deserve a place to be talked about." —Whatsageek.com

The romance was incredible. There was also a great set of secondary characters. Nathan was my favorite. And I'm so thrilled that he's going to get his own story too. I can't wait for it. The perfect YA contemporary romance for me. It had humor, romance, awesome characters and great writing. Pretty much everything I want in a book.” —Stephanie, Bookfever
