Title: No Holding Back
Author: Kate Evangelista

Publisher: Swoon Reads

A romantic European vacation is the perfect excuse to let go in this highly anticipated sequel to No Love Allowed by Kate Evangelista

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 swim training 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. Maybe a whirlwind vacation in Europe could help? But… what if it doesn’t work out and he loses the best friend he’s ever had?

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.


First of all, thank you for giving me a chance to review this book, I am glad to be part of this book tour. I’ve been looking forward for this new book of Kate Evangelista since I heard about this, adding up that this book is an LGBT, it made me curious and excited at the same time.

“Be careful. Love is like acid in the veins. It eats you from the inside out until there is nothing left.”

I had a great time reading the book, I felt Nathan’s dilemma and endeavor during the Europe trip. Hiding his true feelings is really challenging on his side. Preston on the other hand is the typical guy, my first impression is that he’s sort of a heartbreaker. But I guess I’m wrong. Nathan and Preston together is dainty. Their story gives excitement and happiness in my heart and I think this is one of the great books that I’ve read so far. To be honest I do read this book when I came home from work and it is very relaxing. 

“Maybe there are some things people won’t understand no matter how much you explain it to them.”

I hope this book will have a second book. I’m not ready yet I want more of Nathan and Preston! they are both charming. Their story is impossible to hate.

My Ratings
When Kate Evangelista was told
she had a knack for writing stories, she did the next best thing:
entered medical school. After realizing she wasn’t going to be the next
Doogie Howser, M.D., Kate wandered into the Literature department and
never looked back. Today, she is a graduate of De La Salle University –
Manila with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature. She taught high school
English for three years and was an essay consultant for two. Currently
she writes full-time and is based in the Philippines.
