Plot: First, here is the summary of "If I Let You Go" from Amazon - Madison Connor is about to lose it. Her job, that is. For three years, she’s taken care of Dominic Hartley’s five year old daughter, Tilly, but her world is flipped on its head when Dominic tells her his latest promotion is taking him to New York. With Tilly having a meltdown over the move, Madison and Dominic get into a fight that changes the entire nature of their relationship, causing Madison to ask herself a big question. Can she let him go?
Madison has been caring for Tilly for three years and Tilly is about to be ripped from her fingers. She's grown to love the little girl as her own. Dominic thinks he knows what is right for his daughter, but he hasn't been listening since he's been obsessed with his career. He's about to find out what it means to finally raise his daughter. If he doesn't change his mind, it isn't going to be pleasant.
Romantic Element: The relationship between Madison and Dominic is steamy and intense. It's not cookie-cuter where a nanny has been in love with her employer for years. She hasn't. Madison even has steamy relations with Neil, the mysterious character I wanted to know a bit more about. I love that the two of them have real fights! They are passionate and Madison is not afraid to voice her opinions! She's a strong character and I really enjoyed reading about her.
Overall: The story did need a little more depth - I wanted to know a bit more about Dominic and his past. The reader doesn't get a lot of background on Madison either and I'm not exactly sure how old she was. The whole book was written very well! The characters were fairly well-rounded and it was a book I couldn't put down! I started it and found myself staying up until early in the morning to finish! Also, I enjoyed Tilly's character - she's a spunky little girl and she knows what she wants. Very typical of a five-year-old!
If I Let You Go is an entertaining story with passion, romance, and temper-tantrums on all sides. I would recommend this to others as a short and sweet, contemporary romance!
