A first kiss that changed everything.

Killian Kane.
He was the most feared guy in high-school.
Guarded. Angry. A fighter.
But when I caught him watching me with his captivating green eyes I saw something more. Something protective and kind.

He warned me to stay away from him.
I did.
Until I didn’t and he kissed me. A knee weakening, body tingling kiss that left me breathless. 
And scared the hell out of me.

And then…
He warned me never to come near him again or next time he wouldn’t let me go.

That was eleven years ago.
We aren’t teenagers anymore. He has probably forgotten me. 
He’s a famous rock star now. I’m a dance instructor with a broken dream and desperate for a job.
So, when we cross paths again I don’t expect him to remember me.
He does.
And his warning eleven years ago? I’m about to find out exactly what that meant.


ARC provided  in exchange for an honest review.

Savannah (Savvy) Grady had a passion for dancing. But a wrong choice led her to desperation for a job and a reunion with someone from her past brought up a different kind of desperation.

Killian (Kite) Kane grew up as an angry teenager. He had the need to upheld justice and protected others, including a girl he cared about. Years later he became a famous rock star and the need to protect and claim came back with her return.

Kite really intrigued me in the last book, so I’m very happy when he finally get his own story. It was different from what I expected, but still enjoyable.

He was worth the risk. The hidden. The complicated. The man who had demons behind the captivating green eyes, but within the depths also lived a man who cared. Who protected. Who made my heart skip a beat and my breath stop.

Kite had a broken past. What he endured as a kid was bad and he was still haunted by it. He was detached to protect himself from being hurt. But deep down he cared more than he showed.

I felt like that rabbit quivering in the hole as the wolf approached. The difference was, there was a part of me that wanted to get caught.

Savvy was having hard time with her life. Even after being screwed, she always find goodness with others. As intimidating as Kite was, I like how she wasn’t afraid to stand up against him.

I like their story – how they reconnected and made it work. I also like their background. However I was expecting something more. Previous books in the series had more darkness and some suspense elements so that’s what I was anticipating. This book was more mellow. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just personally, I’d like to see more complications in the story.

There’s a new character in this book that I love. Trevor brought something extra to the story and I just love how he connected with the main characters effortlessly.

“Do you ever not get what you want, Killian?”
“Yes, for eleven years.”

Kept From You is a story of a couple reconnecting a special bond and moving on from their hurtful pasts. It would appeal to fans of second chance romance with lots of sexy times.
